There is no way that I'm going to endorse this site now that they force you to register simply to list all steps on one page. Crap like that is why I have to have a "spam-only" e-mail address. Go to hell.

It seems the All Steps problem has been solved, as you have an account. Oh and Instructables has a be nice policy.

You're right, and I apologize for the tone, but not the objection. Adding additional hoops to site usage, which can have the sole purpose of either spamming my e-mail address themselves or selling it so that others may do so, is NOT nice.

Spamming how? The only thing Instructables sends me is comment notifications and the newsletter, both of which can be disabled.

Why the need to provide an e-mail address, then? I understand the purpose of registration in order to comment--but simply to view an entry's steps on one page???

It's been a while since I joined, and things have changed in the registration process, but I believe you need to give an email address to be able to get your activation code, which helps prevent spammers from making quick accounts. It might be a hassle, but it helps in the long run. I'm not sure why about the All-steps thing, but I don't think it's that big of a deal to click each step, except for iBles like TimAnderson's 50 Nifty Tricks and such.

Or there's add /?ALLSTEPS on the end of the URL, I do that if I probably won't be logging in. ;-)
Most email sites I go to require you to give them an email address for account verification. And the only reason that they don't allow all steps by outside members is to encourage membership. From my experience, after you register, you get less "spam", in the form of fewer advertisements in the instructables.
