Registrations for web sites — especially free registrations — are primarily for data capture. Demographic and marketing information that the owner/publisher of the site can use to their advantage. As long as there's an opt-out button, you can prevent any unwanted communications from that party or their partners. On the other hand, if you choose to opt in, the information you give them will help keep their communications to you relevant.<br><br>As long as it's free, what's the big deal?<br><br>
