Globe and Mail website locks content, shuts out public

Why any newspaper would make it more difficult for readers to read its stories, I do not know. Does anybody out there actually want to keep track of **another** password? It seems Canada's paper of record is taking a page from the recording industry's handbook, and treating their customers with little respect. And lest we forget, newspapers don't sell papers; they sell readers to advertisers. Seems to me that passwords and logging in make it less likely readers will read (myself as a case in point), and less reading would seem to lead to fewer eyeballs on advertisements. Well, to each his own...
