Frequently Asked Questions

This is a single FAQ from the MetaFilter FAQ.

Can I post a link to something behind a free registration?

Generally speaking, no. Things that you link to should be freely available on the web. This generally means no registration, even if there is a handy workaround using bugmenot. This goes for double for links behind reasonably prevalent pay walls (Chronicle of Higher Education, JSTOR content, etc); try to make sure your link is available for everyone before you put it on MetaFilter.
