You Should Be Responsible!


One of the characters on the popular Person of Interest television program claimed to have invented social networking as a means by which the government could compile a data base of information on private citizens.

He explained the action in terms like "this was a way that people willingly would give up all their information" - which immediately made me think of facebook!

And I'm sorry, I have no sympathy for all of those idiots who posted ridiculous crap on their social media and are now scared (oooo-hooo-hooo) their school or employer or whoever wants a look!

And this "Bill of Rights" is insane! If you got away with stealing or abusing a child or doing some despicable act and then posted it on facebook YOU SHOULD BE FIRED, jackass!

Yet, if you read the comments on that post - OMG! People just don't get it! (And some of them may have things they want to keep hidden!) WAKE UP!

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.
