[thelist] web site registration

my boss is talking about making people register to read the content on our
web site.

I believe that most users *hate* giving an email address (and maybe a
password too) when  they surf to a site. I know that I never follow links to
the NY Times (say) because it requires me to register in order to go beyond
the Front Page, whereas the LA Times doesn't.

Am I alone in not wishing to give out my email address 10 times a day - or
should i just accept it as an inevitable development of the web?
