mu-sly's Journal: I'm a Karma Whore

Journal by mu-sly

Yep, as I was the first to come across this story linking to an NYT article, I thought I'd see what happened if I posted the text of the article for those not wanting to sign up for the NYT.

So, I Googled for "nytimes login pass" (hell, I don't want to sign up either!) and borrowed a login and pass, and got down to some blatant Karma Whoring action with this posting.

End result: I get modded +5 Informative, but end up annoying a few people in the process (I think). I don't think I'll bother again - the guys posting the subscription-free link have got the right idea, but I hadn't seen that done before. (I guess I just never bother to RTFA anyway!)

So... experimenting on Slashdot... interesting, but next time I'm not bothering.
