Paywalls Suck, We Forgot About Bookmarklets, Information Needs to be Free

I can’t afford most things. proclaims “Show me a 10ft paywall, I’ll show you a 12ft ladder.” I proclaim copy-pasting links when I just hit one of those pesky paywalls is too much effort. Create a new bookmark with the following, and then you can click it any time you really need to read what’s being blocked:

javascript:"" + window.location.href, "_self")

Just remember: If it has a paywall, it probably isn’t worth reading. I’m not kidding about that.
