WhatsApp, Facebook?

Update::: Whatsapp responded to the rumors Monday via twitter, telling Financial Times reporter Tim Bradshaw "The Techcrunch article is a rumor and not factually accurate."

The Buzz is that another wonderful service is about to be gobbled up by the 99% corporate web, and of course, will be forever changed.
TechCrunch / CNet / BusinessInsider :: WhatsApp, the cross-platform mobile messaging app that has captured smartphone users' hearts, to date has been one of the runaway success stories for ad-free, paid services. So, depending on where you get your info, the Social Network has its money-hungry eyes looking to snatch up WhatsApp... and you know "everyone has his price" and you know the facebook crowd think they have bottomless pockets... fo the math!

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.
