" On the trail of the mysterious guerrilla archivist of the Internet" is an interesting site and one I do fall back on from time to time. Most use it for archiving, or for sharing paygated news articles, etc. I have shared those links here from time to time, but normally I don't as I do want to try and support the news sites making revenue.

This was an interesting journey down the rabbit hole trying to figure out who runs or owns this website. There aren't any massive revelations though there is a likely identity uncovered for the site's owner.
