Pop Clips » 11 May 12 » Gets DMCA'd 8 Aug 12

UNCLE, I cried!

That's it! These annoying notices always come for posts that get ZERO traffic! That's the thing that stings and perplexes me about them - OK, I searched "Chilling Effects" and found two 2010 DMCAs - and that's all. (Completely missing: a 2012 notice for an idiotic youtube video that had an "embed" on your blog or website option!) Hmmm... Maybe I'm using the search incorrectly, but when I tried it Google's way I got NO RESULTS at all.


You won't find any post I receieved a DMCA takedown notice for. Especially this one. You won't even be looking for it!

This one had THREE hits since the day after it went up. I looked at it, and for the life of me couldn't figure out what the violation was. So down it will remain, forever banished!

    It's a race to the bottom in media as traditional outlets try to go toe-to-toe against sensationalist content on the internet. Give me Tammy Nyp anyday!

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.
