Anti-Paywall Archive Link Providers

Main: https://archive.is/ Alternative 1: https://12ft.io/ Alternative 2: archive.org

Feel free to recommend more. Archive.is and Archive.org doesn't have all the links archived.

*Make the world a better place: *When you click on the archive.is URL. If there are no pre-existing archives available, then please click on archive this url as this will help other users to see an archived link. Kinda like BE KIND REWIND.

Paywall List

The paywall list is taken from the following URL. At first, I was mindfully fetching the list, but then I just manually inserted the list, way simpler this way.

If you wish to update the paywall list, feel free to send a pull request.
