When the end result is not kept in mind

I was browsing a tech site today doing research, and noted that someone was going back through old articles and spamming the crap out of them (for adult friend finder). I thought “hey, I’ve got a second, I’ll report that –” I hit the handy button, and I was presented with a “Sign up for your free membership!” screen — there was no way to report abuse on the site without registering, and registering meant giving up a huge amount of personal information and opting out of newsletters. I gave up.

Enjoy your defacement, guys.
