Why I don't like js-kit comments!

I saw a post on Lady Java's blog that I wanted to comment on. No problemo, correto? Incorreto! js makes you go through a "sign in". I did - or did I? A box popped up offering a variety of ways to sign in, I chose twitter. Then - as a huge grey box dominated the screen, indicating that things were "loading" I had to listen to a commercial for WOOLITE! WTF?!?!

5 minutes passed (I was on BROADBAND, not dial-up, mind you!), after which a big grey box displayed this message:

"The page isn't redirecting properly. Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete."

I never got the opportunity to comment on the post.

But they DID manage to make me listen to the ad!

  1. Hi Dave!
    I've long wanted to leave comments here but I couldn't find the comment section. Now finally, I found it.

    I just wanna thank you for the time and effort you spent on dropping EC's on my site. Though I wanna apologize that I can not equal your stats. Nevertheless, I wanna let you know that it is highly appreciated and will try my best to do the same.

    Thanks much!

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.
