You are referring to the WPES and CCS papers. The reason for that is
that WPES and CCS are conferences whose papers are published by the
academic publisher ACM. ACM is one of the worst offenders in open
access. You can only read their research papers after paying quite a
bit of money. For people who are not affiliated with a university, it's
typically too expensive to obtain more than a few research papers.
That said, many researchers are nice enough to put their papers online
by themselves so that others can read them for free. Somebody just has
to search for these papers and then add the pdf files to anonbib.
