Around The Blogosphere 23 June 09

Pun intended...

If it didn't surprise you that Chris Brown got a slap on the wrist, this might: twitter has flatlined? Micro Persuasion reports.

FBHive, a new blog devoted to the discussion of all things Facebook, has debuted with the revelation that its creators have discovered a hack that can expose some crucial profile data.

WARNING - DO NOT EAT NESTLE TOLL HOUSE COOKIES!!!

Sanjukta at This Is My Truth writes that “India prepares for a never before celebration of Queer Pride with events and pride marches being planned in all of the 5 metros.” Meanwhile, back in Nueva York, Lady GaGa wears a bra outfitted with sparklers. Wonder if this'll catch on in time for July 4th?

Chilling: The Oscar-winning songwriter who composed the 1970s hit "You Light Up My Life" has been accused of raping women who responded to ads he posted on Craigslist.

Geoffrey Philp uploaded Green for Human Rights in Iran

Wa7da Masreya posted an Egyptian rap song [EN & AR] in support of Iran. Meantime, Against Torture in Egypt posted this game - designed by IRCT (The International Rehabilitation Council for Torture Victims) - on the occasion of the United Nations International Day in Support of Victims of Torture (June 26).

RIP Ed McMahon

COMMENTING FEES
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.
