Goodbye, LOSERS!

Another batch of "followers" who un-followed me when they realized my twitter account is not set up to auto-follow them in return...
(Actually, even if it was, they would have left anyway - that's what these folks do- they're usually fake twitter accounts set up by money-schemers trying to make extra bucks online by tweeting junk)
And, on the outside chance that I am following any of these peeps, I will soon be UNfollowing them in return!

  1. Geesh...I thought I had a lot of "quitters!" You're absolutely right though, many of the followers are "ghosts" trying to bulk up their lists.

    I thought I did some really great writing the other day when I got several new twitter follwers immediately following a post. They were all "credit card" pushing followers.

    Oh, and I don't let just anyone be my facebook friend either!

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.

IMPORTANT:

Your comment will appear after you have made your donation.
