WordPress Still Sucks, No Matter What You Say...

...and so do most of the third-party commenting systems, but that's a tale for another post.

I try to leave intelligent comments on blog posts. I don't mind "going through security" but I encounter this shitty (for you the blog owner) scenario ON A DAILY BASIS:

(1) I tried to leave a comment on a blog



(2) The screen below displayed when I hit submit... but there is nowhere on the blog to go to comply with the request. Thus, the blog in question loses
(A) MY COMMENT
(B) MY LINKBACK and
(C) Any chance I will recommend the blog or link to it.

  1. PS - there is no way to reach the fellow who authored this blog post, which seems to be a guest post on a blog that also cannot be contacted.

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.

All IP addresses are logged.

Your comment will not appear immediately as all messages are vetted before publication.
