It looks like the New York Times has gotten somewhat wise to the shenanigans
going on here, and block registration requests coming from
majcher.com. (Which also means that I can't register an account there
legitimately...) So, to make this work, what you need to do is "Save
As..." this page to your local machine, and just run it from there.
Last I checked, that works fine. I'll investigate a workaround in the
Workaround, from another internet pal: "As an addendum to Adam Funk's contribution to your page, you might want
to include that Mozilla and Firefox users don't actually have to edit
text files to disable Referrer headers. They can type "about:config" in
the Location bar to view advanced configuration elements, then scroll
about 75% down the page to "network.http.sendRefererHeader", and
double-click it to change the value to 0. (I believe it defaults to 2.)" So, there you go. Get a real browser, get a real solution.
Another way to avoid the referer blocking is to use this code as a
bookmarklet. Right-click that link and select "Add to Favorites..." or the equivalent.
Code here. (See
http://www.bookmarklets.com/) Submitted by Jason Day, tested on Galeon
and Mozilla, but should work in most browsers that support this
functionality, maybe with a little tweaking.

I found out how to block referrer information in Mozilla too; it's just a
