I've been annoyed that many popular APIs have moved to require authentication in order to retrieve information. If I can browse a page and get said information, why can't I simply pull it with some simple code and skip the authentication bit? I had thought that both Twitter and Facebook required authentication to retrieve basic post counts, but it turns out you can grab those with JSONP. Here's how you do it.
