Hi. I have an idea, and I'll need help to
make it happen.
Sometimes, a web article is fantastic, but it doesn't LOOK fantastic, because there are no comments at the end. Worse than the lack of comments is the little scoreboard, reading COMMENTS (0).
COMMENTS (0) is like a silent crowd of motionless spectators. It sucks.
To help put an end to this injustice, I would like to form the Cockeyed.com Elite Comment Strike-Force!!!
Cockeyed.com comments-leavers have been previously documented as among the best in the world.
Are you interested? Have you ever been on an elite strike force before, or is this your first?
Leaving a comment doesn't sound like much work, and it isn't, but (depending on the comments section) there can be a certain amount of paperwork required ( i.e. signing up for an account, decoding a captcha).
When I secure comment pledges that total 1,000, I'll start the auction. A week later, a winner will be determined, and I will get paid! Whoo! But wait! It doesn't end there!
Within 20 days of end of the auction, the strike force will, uh, strike. I'll post a link to the winning, comment-ready website, releasing a firestorm of comments.
(US DHS Statement of Non-threatening behavior c.US-REA2006: There will be no actual fire).
For the next seven days, I'll ask cockeyed.com readers to make good on their comment pledges. They should visit the target website and make comments there.
The final effect should be a website crackling with feedback. The overstuffed comments sections will reflect an active and verbose reader base. It will be the web-article version of a glamorous Hollywood star.
If you would like to sign up, and get in on the strikeforce action, type your comments pledge into the box below, and indicate how many comments you are willing to leave on the winning article/page. Use this format: Barry Montgomery: 5 comments.
Qs and As:
Q. What do we say in the comments section?
Q. Do the comments have to be elite?
Q. Can one person leave more than one
Q. This sounds incredible! How do I sign up?
Q. The winner gets 1,000 comments, and you

Q. Awesome? It sounds kind of crappy.
