Can someone post a full version of the article? I only get the first two lines...

The easiest way to get around this is by googling the headline and clicking on the article from the google results.

It almost always works for some reason.. my best guess is that sites allows these crawled links to see the full content because doing otherwise would harm their SEO.

Not only that, people who use this tactic are helping improve the pay-walled article's page ranking, because most search engines will record that click and account it as a good search result.

So from publisher's perspective, they are getting more SEO by pay-walling!

Best I've seen so far is google translation of this site:

February 28, when it is filed for Civil Rehabilitation Law in Tokyo District Court, the company describes a total of about 850,000 BTC corresponding to almost all to be held has been lost.

Be nice to not have paywall posts on HN... But then again, apparently most people just read the headlines. :)
