Around The Blogosphere 18 July 09

Another "something new" ::: Lazyfeed Discovery Engine is the latest bloggeek thing...... Louis Gray has been playing with it...

Sites are dropping support for IE6, which unfortunately for the PC and OS I am using now (impossible to upgrade) ... I have added a version of Firefox that works on the computer, but keep getting a message urging me to "upgrade." Technology! Pfffff!

By the way, I'm still struggling after both my desktop and laptop computers failed! I cobbled a unit together from parts... it's not too steady, using an old 28.8 external modem (remember THOSE!?!) So IF ANYBODY CAN HELP ME OUT there's a donate button at the top right hand column of this blog. ANY gift in ANY amount would be greatly appreciated!

Disagreements between bloggers and their readers may often take place within the comments section, and can continue in the form of debate and discussion. However, for some Peruvian bloggers, some of their views motivated others to take action to silence differing opinions.

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.

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.
