Safe Entrecard Dropping While Avoiding Splogs

Some EC members have become concerned about "splogs" and website bearing EC widgets that transmit virusses or malicious software.

Here is how you can avoid any problems when reciprocating drops:

SPLOGS ::: One dropper sent Entrecard a list (actually two lists) of a hundred and twenty of these 'splogs' ... it's up to EC to de-list them! In the meantime, recipro-drop only on blogs you know and trust... if you are NOT SURE, then

CHECK ANY BLOG YOU ARE SUSPICIOUS OF! If you click on the link here, you'll see Norton giving my blogging friend Martin's "Cornyman blogreviews" a clean bill of health! Put Martin on your "trusted" list!

If you ever run into any kind of strange loading problem with any blog you regularly visit, run the URL through the above test. Norton will report to you if anything is wrong!

  1. I'm wondering why the higher-up admins in EC won't do anything about this? Granted that people are actually reporting this, that is.

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.
