Comments on G+

Think twice before you comment on G+.

If you are a blogger, and you receive a notification that a comment has been left on G+ for you, IMMEDIATELY copy/paste whatever you can and manually inject it into your blog comments stream. I have "lost" several comments left on my G+ instead of this blogspot blog, where the article is presented.

Here's an example of a lost comment - the only clue is in the subject line of the notification email (click on the image for a larger version):Sounds like it would have been a very interesting comment that could have stimulated more discusssion!

If you are commenting on an article - go directly to the actual blog - AVOID commenting via G+!

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.

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