At least for the time being and forseeable future, I am revoking my policy of charging $10 for lifetime commenting privileges for frequent commenters. It was instituted when I had 3,000 visitors a day. But at this new site, we are down to an average of ~200 visitors/day. It’s true that last month that went up to ~900 visitors/day, which was very, very nice. However, the eight month total is still averaging 200 visitors/day.
The old commenting system where frequent commenters had to pay will not be instituted again until I reach ~3,000 visitors a day, which could be quite some time, considering that we seem to be stuck ~200 visitors/day for some time now. So you all might be able to comment here for free for some time now.
Anyone not commenting because they think it’s not free is more than welcome to come back.
But even though commenting is free probably for some time now, it would still be very nice to get donations to keep the site running. See the post below for an explanation on how to do that.
