They Shoot Bloggers, Don't They?

Tags: ,

Bloggers, if you want to know who you are, read your comments! Blogger XiaXue (Wendy Cheng) racks up hundreds of comments per post. Blogger LaShawn Barber does every day what I've always wished I could do on this blog: attracts commenters who not only comment on but discuss the post in forum fashion --- true blog dialogue!

Egyptian blogger D.B. Shobrawy introduces us to Egypt’s torture kit. "A simple You Tube search for “Egyptian Police Brutality” will provide all the info you need."

Isabella admits she is a Temporary Fan Girl, experiencing a crush on Alan Rickman.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.

IMPORTANT:

Your comment will appear after you have made your donation.
