For some reason, [forcing me to register] pisses me off more than when a site tries to charge for what is free elsewhere — it’s actually nice to think that the girls on bangbus.com are being paid and that there’s not just a dude holding a gun on them off camera. Likewise, I have no problem with ads on a website — we’re not running a goddamned charity operation over here. But then you have the businesses that operate under the, “We won’t allow you to give us money or traffic until you also create an account with your personal information” business model. That’s what needs to die.
