Movement to end "registration required"

Movement to end "registration required"

The fabulous site Boing Boing is calling attention to a petition at BugMeNot. The petition essentially asks everyone to register a fake username on November 13 as a protest against information collection by registration-required sites like the New York Times, the idea being to poison the databases of those sites with mass amounts of false information.

BugMeNot is a service that provides fake logins so that you can sign in to those registration-required sites without bothering to make up fake information or give real information.

Here's the original link at Boing Boing and a link to the BugMeNot petition.
