There is *absolutely no* warrant for thinking this is "writing," any
more than the Vinc^a signs are "writing." Only if more examples turn up,
so that any analysis at all is possible, could that even be considered.

I registered with the New York Times once, years ago, and did not "get
an id" and do not have to use a password. AFAICT there has been no
undesired e-mail as a result.

Please note that by reading the Times at the website you have avoided
paying 75c for a copy of the paper ($3.50 on Sunday), and they are
entitled to let their advertisers know that readers are in fact being
exposed to the advertisements. That's what pays for the web access.

Good for you for not forwarding the article, but bad people do it all
the time.
