  * Are paywalls ok?

    It's ok to post stories from sites with
    paywalls that have workarounds.

    In comments, it's ok to ask how to read
    an article and to help other users do so.
    But please don't post complaints about
    paywalls. Those are off topic.

Also, from https://news.ycombinator.com/newsguidelines.html

    Please don't submit comments complaining
    that a submission is inappropriate ... If
    you think a story is spam or off-topic,
    flag it by clicking on its 'flag' link.
    ... If you flag something, please don't
    also comment that you did.
