That is good to know. But I looked this up and what I've found is Jonathan Corbet saying in 2010 that "occasional" posting of subscriber links is fine.[1]

I am not Jonathan Corbet so I don't know what he considers occasional. But this is the fourth LWN subscriber link posted in the past 7 days, and the eighth in the past 14 days.[2]

For reference, LWN currently lists 10 paywalled posts, the oldest from 13 days ago.[3] Those posted on HN are nearly every paywalled article that they have.

Agreed, the number of subscriber links is kind of high. If it still gets them extra subscribers, then probably its ok. I guess they are monitoring the numbers on that.
