Glaring Error Suggests Inattention to Detail?

Hmmm. I can spell but my brain-to-keyboard skills sometimes render incorrectly spelled words (I ditched the spell-checker because it kept screwing up my blog posts in other ways!)

But when you see a company online that claims to offer "PROFESSIONAL photo editing & graphic design services" and then you see a GLARING error on the company webpage (A very simply laid-out page; the error quite obvious)...

Hopefully, these folks are honest and will fix the error. HOWEVER - I am preparing a post that tells the true story behind a lot of "bargains" for products and services on the net that are nothing short of scams.

Devious companies will charge small amounts - like $10 up to $49 - because they know they can keep your money, send you nothing in return, and there is NOTHING you can do about it!

In the case of fotodesigners, I couldn't check on how to pay for any services because there is a registration requirement (another possible 'red flag'?).

The website places company offices in cities in the US and Canada. So unless they threw their website up in a big hurry, it's hard to believe such experts would make such an obvious error.

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.
