Sites with registration lists?

Can anyone direct me to a website with usernames / passwords for public consumption for sites like NY Times, WSJ, etc?

I recall someone mentioning one of these sites here in ask, but can't remember the name nor find the post.

You're not going to get a wsj password there, that's a pay site. [I would love to have a wsj password.]

And if you use Firefox, get the bugmenot extension: it'll automatically fill in the login-in forms.

Look, will you guys make up your mind, please. Is it a firefox extension for bugmenot or a bugmenot extension for firefox?

bugmenot also has a nice bookmarklet that is linked on their homepage.

Whatever the site, username=cypherpunk, password=cypherpunk. Most public sites this works. In cases where it doesn't, create an account called cypherpunk and make the password cypherpunk, so it will work for the next guy.

Your public library may have a portal for an information aggregate. Get into its website, plug in your card number, and see what they have for you.
