I hate paywalls

Published by at 6:53 am under Blogging,Hacking

The New York Times has a decent article about botnets, but I can’t link to it because it’s behind a paywall.  I guess the NYT still doesn’t understand how linking can increase traffic to their own site.  The article is titled “A Robot Network Seeks to Enlist Your Computer” if you happen to have an NYT account.  Or use BugMeNot, if you’re so inclined.

    Here is the permalink: I don’t see the payware from this link (under the share there is a permalink option….)

    Martin – I don’t think the Times has the pay per thing anymore. I have not run into it for a long time. Are you sure?

    It’s no longer a paywall, just a regwall.
