Not being able to get to Guardian is probably a plus for fark.cn

Delete your cookies, if the wall is cookie based.

/Next up: change your user agent to appear as a googlebot, so you can laugh at bad blocker coding.
//then later: Use the mobile site on your desktop and no blocking counter and no ads.

The Guardian is a freebie. They love lots of traffic.

Eh, I take that back--maybe not. I had an account. But it was relatively non-intrusive and once you were in, they never bothered you again. Unless it's changed very recently.

Does this technique work for the NY Times?

No paywall on the Guardian site, Subbie. This is not a Murdoch rag.

/Pays for paper copy at weekends FWIW

In Firefox, I have it set to ask my permission for all cookies.  I accept the first (meter, I think) cookie which lets me on to the site then deny all others thereafter.  I read my news, then delete the cookie once I'm done.  Haven't been blocked yet.  I found out that if I blocked that first cookie I hit the paywall.
