Increasingly, Web publishers, and in particular newspaper sites, are demanding that readers give up some of their personal information -- like e-mail addresses, gender and salaries -- in exchange for free access to their articles. The publishers say they need this information to make money from advertising. But anecdotal evidence and online chatter suggest readers are annoyed with the registration process. Some readers enter bogus information, while others are looking for ways to bypass the registration roadblocks.
It will mean that if you want a registration-only site it will be a lot of work. Whether people pay with money, or in exchange for information, or through advertising, restricting access to their content for those who don't pay is the right of every website owner.
