Around The Blogosphere 18 December 09

Twitter was hacked overnight by so called Iranian Cyber Army. Neersy tweeted [fa] that this group is a pro Islamic State one and its mission is attacking green movement's (opposition) sites and blogs.

People, there are MANY paths intruders can take to get into your computer, for example...

How a Fake Twitter Death Report Tragically Came True: "...someone impersonating a newspaper writer falsely reported the death of football player Chris Henry. The NFL star died about 12 hours later, finally making one of Twitter's many fake stories come true."

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.
