HOW TO REMOVE "PAY PER POST" FROM YOUR BLOG OR WEBSITE

Nothing makes me go GRRRRRRRR! faster than something that screws around with my blog! Especially ANYTHING that "pops up." So when I saw this I took immediate action (details after the screenshot). I haven't used "payperpost" in many many moons, and I was infuriated when I saw this appear on my site!

Here's the line of code you have to remove from your blog script or template: it contains the following URL -

http://tinyurl.com/2b5ojn

Do this carefully (as in make sure you have about 5 to 25 minutes of time you can devote to this, depending on your level of comfort working with code) If your blog or website has a large script, go to your script editor, "select all" - "copy" and then "paste" the copy into wordpad or a large capacity text editor.

Search for tinyurl.com/2b5ojn and delete that line. If you can't find the line back in your template or script by looking for it manually, simply "save" what you've put in the text editor, then "select all" then "copy" and now go back to your dashboard template, do another "select all" and "paste" then hit the dashboard's save button and you're all set. (Make sure you didn't - or your text editor didn't - make any other changes. TO BE SAFE - keep a copy of the original template AND if your service - blogspot does this - lets you download and save your template or blog, do that too!)

When you're all done, call up your blog and refresh the page on your PC to make certain that all is well.

I show NO MERCY when programs, services or widgets F with my blog!

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.
