I am confused … so I'll try to summarize what I think I hear:
- Game sites require free registration in order to access 'level 1' info and downloads. 'Level 0' can be had without registration, but no downloads. Special treatment, access, server priority and so on can be obtained for $X per year.

That seems the factual basis, which seems to place those sites (GameSpy/GameSpot/IGN/UGO/etc) in a similar place as things like the New York Times online and other such information sources.

But you are implying a more insidious side:
- There is some evil person at the head of these sites (Rscaife?)
- That identity theft is somehow uniquely associated with these sites?
- ?

I guess I'm not sure where the line between being unable to register a user name, wanting not to wait 24 hours for a download, and being oppressed by evil overlords is drawn?
