Newspaper logins

Many newspaper stories require an account login in order to access them these days. Apparently print media is not satisfied with merely providing poor news quality; they want to take away people's privacy too. Being a privacy advocate, I always enjoy evading these silly attempts to collect data on users. You can too. When you are confronted with a newspaper site that prompts for a login, use the following information...

E-mail address (if asked): mailinator@mailinator.com
Username (if asked): mailinator
Password: mailinator

This will work at most newspaper sites. If not, simply create a new account with this information so that others may enjoy privacy-enhanced surfing. Stick it to the man.
