BugMeNot is amazing. I love it. If you use Firefox, there’s even an extension you can use that will allow you to right-click and automatically get a username and password for the site you’re trying to access (usually a news site — I’ve tried, but it doesn’t work on paid access sites, or at least not the academic journal I was trying). Complete laziness triumphs. I have one quibble, however. Why must you helpful souls who submit registrations for BugMeNot always, always come up with pithy usernames like “Uliqa Mabalz” and “Suk Meballz.” It’s getting old. Grow up.
