    Registration overall isn't a bad thing.
    It's bad when someone makes me to register, to use this kind of service.
    Registration doesn't give me any advantages in this case and to use this service for a first time I have to:

    1. Sign Up (i thought it's a registration process)
    2. Confirm by email
    3. Than register
    4. ......... don't know what comes next
    5. Finally use the service

    I'm a lazy guy, and I don't wish to jump from website to email to website to get any service even if it's as cool as this one.

    In any website user path process from the start to the end is the most important thing. In most cases users abandon process becouse it's too complicated or it takes too long...

    As for the eralier problem, Addthis doesn't make me register anything to get their buttons.

    Sharethis - makes me fill out the form if registering or login if already a member but that's it. The whole process begins and ends in one view.

    Facebook - Like button - didn't saw any registration there.

    Twitter, Delicious, Google Buzz and any other social buttons, same thing.

    Cheers.

    A. Why is registration a bad thing? It's definitely a useful service. Definitely worth a registration.
    B. As for the earlier problem, while signing up for any service you need to provide an accessible email address precisely so you can click on the activation link. This is how most web services work.

    I hope that helped.

    It gets worse. The activation link isn't really an activation link. It's link to registration form. I gave up.

    Cheers.

    Remind this - interesting concept. Although when the system asked me to activate my reminder by email i gave i got confused. The reason was: I've send the reminder to email that I don't have access to at the moment so how can I activate anything? It's just stupid...

    Cheers.
