Please Google Please! "If it ain't broke don't fix it"...

One of the things I HATE that Google has recently implemented:

If you enter search terms in the box, but you then decide to switch to "news" - you have to re-enter search terms.

On any other button, your search terms are saved - like, say you clicked on "images" - your search terms would remain in the bar and you would find images relevant to your search.

I'm sure the m***********s deliberately did that so we'd be forced to look at the Google news page.

And today, Google's "call" button (telephone chat) vanished from my gmail. I figured out a sketchy way to make outgoing calls again. I'm not sure if this is a temporary fluke or what the heck is going on.

Sure is ANNOYING!

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.
