avoiding nyt registration page

Following up on a previous thread, I just posted something with a link to the NYTimes, and it apparently got filtered to channel.nytimes.com... which would be fine except that channel.nytimes.com is reachable. I tried to post a correction before I realized the filtering was at fault, and the correction got filtered too. Then Rebecca tried to post a working URL and hers also got filtered. Needless to say, this adds a lot of noise to the thread. I would vastly prefer the URL to remain to www.nytimes.com; perhaps the filter could instead follow up the post automatically with a link that says "if you want to avoid registration, try this link instead" with a link to channel, so that the content of the post isn't altered?

I wonder if the Times has closed the channel back door, or if the server's temporarily down?

Links to NYT broken

Following up on an earlier thread in which, a while back, it was suggested that links to the NYT be automatically be switched to channel.nyt.com.

I posted a thread with a couple links to www.nyt.com in it. I had actually originally made the link to channel.nyt.com, but when I tested it it didn't work, so I made the switch back to the working www.nyt.com URL. (My guess is that channel doesn't work for links to special "sections" like the Book Review.) It looks like Matt put in the switch to channel, however, and now the links are broken. So this is (1) a heads-up about the problem to Matt, (2) a plea of "it's not my fault," and (3) a request to fix the links, if possible. Thanks.

New York Times redirects

Suggestion: make nytimes.com links magical things that point to channel.nytimes.com links.
