Brilliant invention: Bugmenot.com

A community backlash against (free) required registration schemes: bugmenot is a database of working logins for websites that require you to register to view content. With convenient plugins (that pop up some usable credentials) available for Mozilla and Internet Explorer I have registered as user Cheddar Cheese from Osteby, a 93 year old albanian female CEO in the $20.000 to $25.000 income bracket for the very last time.

Obviously we need to do just a little better: The plugins should actually load the login form itself automatically, just like Password Manager does in Mozilla if you ask it to. The "submit this login to bugmenot" phase is poorly supported by the plugins. Hmm, maybe it's time to tinker.
