: : : A recent article at Reason.com uses "(reg. reg.)" about three times. One example "On the op-ed page of The New York Times, columnist Maureen Dowd gripes (reg. req.) that men..." where "gripes", in this case as in all the others, is the name of a hotlink. Do you have any idea what "(reg. reg.) means?

: : It's probably after a link to a story, and Registration is Required to get to it. The NYT as I recall is a free registration.

: Consistent with what this abbreviation stands for, it's "reg. reQ," not "reg. reG."

Sorry. My bad. I did cut and paste in the body of the query and it really is "(reg. req.) but I typed the subject line and got it wrong. Even if I had been more careful I probably would not have figured it out without your help. Thanks
