Sign-up the moment you visit the website 3 times in a row
More often than not I find myself in situation to want to post something to a website forum I have been following for a long time. Latest example is today with HackerNews. I have been reading HN for about 6 months and today was the first time I was compelled to post something. I was able to comment the existing threads right away (which is nice), but not able to post a new link - most probably because my account was 10 minutes old.
By the time I earn privilege to post the story it wouldn’t be relevant to anyone anymore. Lesson learned the hard way. So, make sure you create an account for the website you are using daily, even if you don’t think you’ll ever need it.
Don’t you just hate how spammers have ruined the Internet.Tweet to @mbabuskov Tweet Milan Babuškov, 2011-08-23
