I find this "upgrade your browser" crap disturbing...

Message to Kikolani:::
... and you know where this is leading, don't you? Eventually, you won't be able to get to gmail or mediafire, because they will have put up code to prevent the sites from being displayed...



WHY YOU SHOULD BE CONCERNED

Remember all that "cloud computer" stuff? In the future, when you are dependent upon the cloud, the cloud will dictate what tools you may or may not use to access your files. There will be no argument. You will succumb to the "will of the cloud" or "cloud mentality."

SAY "NO" TO THE CLOUD

Hackers, coders, programmers! If there is anything you can do to thwart this "cloudthink" your time would be better working on this than on disrupting websites or inventing new trojans and keyloggers. Find a way that we can use our existing programs and equipment to stay connected (and visible if we so choose) on the Internet.

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.
