Tell 'Em Google Sent You

Steven Den Beste has found the magic bullet to getting around registration requirements at the Washington Post web site. An added bonus is that his method should work with ANY news site listed on Google News. Sure they want to trap you in a registration system on entrance, but they’re certainly not going to jeopardize getting seen on Google by requiring that the Google Bot register.

Now if some enterprising programmer would write a plug-in or Active X control that would automatically send Google referral data to sites that require registration, that would be very cool.
