anonymous comments for $1 a shot May 17, 2006 10:37 AM   Subscribe

Less of a feature request, more of a mega cash-cow idea for Matt: The ability to make anonymous comments for $1 a shot.

I'm glad you see the vast appeal of my idea.

agropyron, where would you get such a preposterous idea my friend?

Shaved head jinx. You owe me a coke which is going about the same rate as an anonymous comment.

Why would anyone pay a dollar for that? What's the benefit for them? I could see a dollar for extra/anonymous questions, but comments, no.

For manscaping, I like to use a mustache trimmer -- it's made for the same type of hair as what you'll find near your twig and berries, and it's not too dangerous.

I have no idea how or why people use a real razor and shaving cream on their sack. They are suicidal.

Not really a cash cow, as most of the comments will probably need an admin to delete them. For example <img src="http://link.to/goatse.jpg">...

houdini (n.)

Named for the infamous magician, the houdini is a sexual act in which a male engages his partner from behind and prior to ejaculating he pulls his penis out and spits on his partners back to simulate ejaculate. When his partner turns around he then ejaculates into his partner's face.

If you just retroactively charge quonsar for everything that should have been posted anonymously, you'll never have to work again.

Is this what happens when Matt goes off his meds?

How about the actual identity of anonymous posters for $1?

Seriously, I would pay for extra askme questions. I would pay $5 for one. If they were that much, most people would probably wait and post once their free question was recharged, so it wouldn't overload the front page. But if I had an "emergency" question, I could pay the $5 and ask it.
