Entrecard! Drop 'til your wrist locks! (Remix/Sample)

You might call this a "best of" Entrecard-related posts. It's a keeper!

Fledgling Blogger just couldn't take it anymore! Once one of the most popular and expensive blogs on the EC network, push came to shove and June Zach dropped --- dropped OUT! Among the comments came one from Marzie, who has three blogs in the EC network: " Mariuca says: October 9, 2010 at 10:08 pm ~ Hey June, yeah I noticed the 404 error and I am not surprised they deleted u without warning. I was deleted once too, cause I had a music player that was on auto and some “friend” reported me and I was immediately deleted without warning… despite the fact that I was totally unaware that having music box on ur blog (on auto) is not allowed. I wrote to them immediately and got my acct reinstated but yeah… no matter how popular or loved ur blogs are on EC, the admin doesn’t seem to appreciate the loyalty of such members.. "
EC POWER-DROP ON DIAL-UP!!! This is so simple! If you're on dial-up and avoid certain blogs because the load time is unbearable, use a friend's broadband computer or a public computer to "save entire webpage" onto a CD. There are two ways you can do this. If you care about content, save the main page of each blog, then burn them all to a single CD. If you are one of those netizens who like to "Hop and Drop," save just one page that you know contains a short post. When you call up the blogs from your CD, everything will load onto your browser (current widget data will likely be refreshed: keep an eye on your toolbar so you can track what's loading) and depending on the individual blog your load time will be cut anywhere between half and 90%!
Is Entrecard really worth the time and trouble? Despite a slight hike in the old bounce rate, I've stuck with the network, and overall, I'm satisfied! But that's me! Tj thinks differently: "It's been a long time since I removed Entrecard from my widgets here in this site, but I doubt their system changed significantly. Don't consider this post as biting the hand that fed me. Let's look at it from a past user's first hand perspective. Here we go: [...]"

Pink Splotch Blog LIKES the EC system: "very simple - yet amazingly effective. Not to mention FREE and easy to use" [...]

Fast-loading websites where the EC widget is located ABOVE THE FOLD in the right-hand column. NO NEED TO SCROLL! (Each link opens in a new window, so you can go, drop, ctrl+W or X out and land right back here!)

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.
