Bypass Compulsory Web Registration. www.bugmenot.com
  • That's amazing. Thanks.
  • Very cool. But... should I feel guilty?
  • Depends. On the one hand, it contributes to the collapse of the sites that sell your information to the highest bidder which lets them keep in the black. On the other hand, privacy is valuable.
  • I tend to register details for sites anyway - Normally Mr. A B from Antarctica, unemployed, and my email address points to x@spam.la - this website allows throw-away email addresses so that I can register and never worry again.
  • Okay... over in the MeFi thread (about the bugmenot spoof registration page - I've seen it before, was it posted here and I just can find it on search> Or was it somewhere else completely?) just now, it was mentioned that MeFi was one site that bugmenot provided login details for. In the spirit of scientific enquiry, I tried it. The first one didn't work. The second read as follows: Account #2 monkeyfilter.com good alternative Okay, who's responsible? Step forward, please. There is a banana waiting for you in the principal's office.
  • Ha! How sneaky!
