He Solves His Own Problems, Too!

Getting ready for a little "spring cleaning" here on my humble little weblog!

I'm always fascinated by the various ways my blog displays on different browsers. Internet Explorer totally screws everything up: if you are viewing this blog with IE, you must have tweaked it just right to see all of the elements correctly.

MY FAVOURITE BROWSER is FLOCK! (And now I'm glad I kept my 2-column layout: here's why!) When I'm on FLOCK I can see my twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn feeds in the right pane! And there's my blog, nestled comfortably on the left!

I have injected a new cache system for faster loading, and of course there's the multi-view scenario courtesy blog*spot HQ, which may possibly help dial-up netizens load my blog faster!

Unfortunately, you'll still have to jump through a few hoops to leave comments! Would you believe the spam commenters STILL leave them, even though they know they're gonna get deleted? LOL!

By the way, if you read this blog, and you don't like my opinions, feel free to not read it.

I'm waiting to see what happens with MyBlogLog before I put the kebosh on the various widgets. I may get rid of C-box (more like "junk box" if you ask me), but I always feel it is best to provide alternate ways for visitors to leave a comment, so I'm really torn there. Actually some of the junk is actually good stuff. So I just solved my own problem!

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.
