This area used to be absolutely free and was for 4 years.  However, rampant sharing of member's private links, and most importantly internet piracy has forced mw to go the route of password word protection.  To put it simply, how would you like to work on an article for a good long day, then see your intellectual property, photos or excerpts from website posted on someone else's website almost word for word.
