Default Accessing Sunset Times &Times

It's possible for those with non UK e-mail addresses to access the UK
Sunset Times and the Times again without paying.

Actually they checked IP addresses, not email addresses.

But wow, you're right - they do seem to have stopped that silly policy
of blocking free access to non-UK readers. It must have annoyed the
hell out of international travellers. On the other hand there are a
lot of those irritating popup ads which Windows XP SP2 can't stop.

Instead they seem to be blocking free access to UK readers to the weekly
archive of print editions on-line.

<Opera user> What is a popup ad?

They seem to block things at random. I start to think who ever ran the
site left and left a legacy behind
