Petraeus Membis Woods Viswanathan

Last night, too lazy and too busy to look for a new pair of AAA batteries for the remote, I left the TV working in the background while I organized a few things and checked my Monday calendar. The TV show "Cheaters" came on - I hadn't watched this program in a long long time, and what pulled me in was the host's name: Clark Gable!

The Cheaters basically get a call from someone who suspects hanky-panky in a personal relationship. The TV crew follows the wayward partner around, documenting clandestine meetings and public appearances. Afetr a reasonable amount of footgae is filmed, it is presented to the "good" partner, who is then whisked away in the Cheaters van to meet and greet and catch the offending couple in action, usually in a very public setting.

Today the media is all fired up over the Petraeus Incident. But infidelity's not the only kind of cheating we're obsessed with: nearly every day a visitor stops by here looking for Liane Membis or Kaavya Viswanathan!

What's YOUR take? Why are we so obsessed With Cheaters?

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.

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.
