The Bloom Is Off The Berg

One stop I often make on the internet is Bloomberg View, which has a number of interesting contributors to its editorial department--some of them friends of mine.

But the website is now requiring registration to read its content.  They promise it's free, but I consider it an imposition and won't do it.

If there's one thing that's easy to get on the internet with nothing standing in your way, its people's opinion.  And that's how I like it.  Even the slightest hindrance makes me think twice.

In other words, I can get along fine without Bloomberg View, and I guess they've decided they can get along fine without me.

It seems to letting me in right now.

Never mind.

I checked again and now it's asking me to register. If I can't figure it out soon, I'm gone.

It's signalling you. Same method Weinstein used.

I never register for any site unless it is really important to me. My main reason is I already get way too much junk email. I don't trust that sites won't share my email address, for whatever reason.

Most of these sites have back door ways in.
