Around The Blogosphere 10 June 2010

Ariel “Peterporn” became a twitter trend a few days ago. It refers to a famous Indonesian singer whose sex videos were uploaded on the web. Indonesian twitterers gave him the nickname “peterporn.”

A Twitter account reportedly belonging to Luna Maya is asking people to stop talking about Her and Ariel Peterpan.

Her tweet says -

Stop Tweeting about Ariel peterporn, Uncool !! RT this tweet please.

The celebrity has reportedly gained tens of thousands of followers after the scandal broke out... The incident is of epic proportions in Indonesia, where school officials have resorted to confiscating and checking students mobile phones in search of sexy videos!

  1. Thanks for including my article in the roundup, the internet is a crazy place and it makes scandals viral so quickly.

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.
