Frankenblogger

Folks, I am trying something radical, adding a THIRD avenue for people to leave comments on the blog that allows Facebook users to access comments via Facebook Connect.

But there may be a problem: I use one of the old school "classic" blogger templates and I'm adding the new code on the fly. I don't think it's working correctly... you will see the new comments section (for now) only on this particular post and on the previous post about the TMZ Rihanna picture.

If the code is working right, we can all sit back and relax. If not, we've got a template to mess around with, and if there are any of you blogspotters out there who have been through this before, I'd certainly like to hear from you!

NOTE: I had to pull Disqus off here thanks to an idiot who fouled it with obscenities. Oh, well, it wasn't working right anyway, and hopefully it will be back on my blog and working correctly in the near future!

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.
