Starting Monday, anyone who wishes to leave a comment or read the comment section will have to pay $25.00 per year.

The comment section is getting popular and I need the money.

If you don't pay?

Well, you have to settle in reading my views only.

Hey? Reading my viewS for free isn't a bad deal!!!!

Send money at

I'm sorry, but the free interchange of ideas and viewpoints (whether I agreed with them or not) was the reason I kept this blog subscribed to in my RSS newsreader. Removing that and charging people for the same privilege you essentially bitch about mainstream forms of media removing from people is the hypocrisy at its sad finest.

I understand though that sometimes you need to recoup costs for time and services. That is, of course, your prerogative. Unfortunately, in my humble opinion, this is the nail in the "voice of the people" coffin, as the site will become your rants without being held to task when necessary, except by those who fork out dough to be able to respond.

Charles, it has been a blast reading this site and responding on occasion (again, whether we agreed or not) and I wish you all the best, but come Monday I will be removing this live feed from my newsreader.

You should be able to make $50 a year because one or two people comment. I will doubt even for $50.

April Fool's Day doesn't start for another 5 hours.

Besides, your comments section isn't getting more popular, it's actually a lot less popular than it was even a few months ago.

That's a good one !
You are a funny man Charlie (Brown) !!!

This is a April fools joke right?

Spinks said...

I understand all New Brunswick bloggers will start this practice. Gotta pay those higher income taxes of Shawn Graham somehow. ;)

Your welfare agent should be made aware of this, then.

Too early for April Fool's Day - that's tomorrow.

Comments are down from months ago anyway.

He will have to pay me $25 to read his crazy rants.

Monctonite said...

Sounds like an April Fools joke to me.
Otherwise, if Charles collected more than 200$ a month (though I doubt that would happen) he'd lose his cheque.

Benny said...

AH' A early April fools joke. Thats good, you had a few people really believing you.Happy April Fools day too you to Charlie, you big kidder you..... imagine charging a fee, thats hilarioes.

Well another empty threat from Charles. But hey if he does do it I should give a call to my local MLA or Social Service to report him.

Oh by the way my wife saw you at the Market this morning and would like to say your welcome for supplying you with that camera, since your welfare that working Canadians fund paid for it.

For the love of god if you put half as much effort in finding a job as you do taking pictures and getting kicked out of places you would have been off welfare years ago.

CHARLES!! GOOD GRIEF!!! COME see me and we'll talk JOBS!!!!!

SURE CHARLES.WELCOME TO THE BOTTOM OF THE BLOGGING BARREL IF THIS ONE HAPPENS. YOU WILL REPORT IT TO YOUR CASE WORKER RIGHT?

Sean said...

Looks like the first Anonymous commenter has fallen for a lot of April Fools' Day jokes.

Be careful, as Blogspot's terms of service does not allow you to charge fees within their site for access. Someone might report this activity.

I plan on sending Charles that money, then I'll be the only voice you hear besides Charles. MOOOOOHOOOOHHAHAHAHA!!

Just Passing said...

Come on people, surely you don't think Charles is serious? There are plenty of adjectives people use to discribe Charles but stupid isn't one of them. He knows full well for a blog such as this that would sound the death knell. Charles just needs too much attention to really do something that drastic.

Charles LeBlanc said...

Yeah Spinks they do it down the States all the time.

That's the way it is.

This is the reason I started this blog.

I knew in the long term people would be addicted to this blog. < especially the comment section >

I already received a lot of private emails telling me they will send the money.

Hey? People are so addicted to this blog and I'm grateful.

Since the New brunswick Human Rights Commission force me on welfare?

Maybe I'll make so much money that I could no longer be on Social Assistance?

Stay tuned.....

Since you're not admitting that this is an April Fool's Day joke, plus the fact it was posted on Saturday, it appears you're trying to be serious about this.

So, this is to inform you that you have been reported to Blogspot.com and Flickr.com for violating their Terms of Service.

Twenty five a year, I thought it was 25 a month! Irving charges more than that to indoctrinate people and they keep buying it!

Spinks said...

The comments are pretty funny. Has anyone looked at the calender? ;)

Just Passing said...

Doesn't Aprils fools day traditionally end at noon? When does it end in here?

Looking forward to May said...

The Opreative word being within...I'm sure Charles can link to a place in cyberspace to allow comments..or he might even host his own website, fee of the T&C that Blogspot imposes..

I say go for it, we live in a world were information is currency and charging for it is inevitable

That's a good question,is charging for an internet service Income? Will Charles have to get an BN#?

I know there are plenty of comments here that I could go without seeing.

April Fools...

(You guys are gullible. I'm sure Charles definitely needs more income, but he is a democrat and a free-speecher. No way this is real.)

Michael G. McKay said...

Hi Charlie: Please be very careful on this one someone could really report you to your case manager and you may very well get cut off from your monthly allowance. It is not much but it beats noghing at all. Also, many of the individuals may not wish to personnally send you money, and if that happens, then you could be out in the cold. Please be very careful my friend. I would not want to hear that that kind of thing has happened to you.

Holy Christ you people are stupid. Did anybody notice the date today?!

Charles LeBlanc said...

That was a funny one. I even got Spinks!!!!...lol

I posted the blog and the comments started to come in.

The ones who caught on quickly? I didn't post their comments.

They must have went crazy by reading all the comments but no April Fool one.

Yeah...people do read the blog even on a nice Saturday afternoon.

I posted the blog the day before because it's not everyone who comes here every day.

It was fun!!!!

You sure know how to get people going,Charles...Or perhaps we could work it out on some kind of trade?

And this is the reason nobody takes you serious

my 2 cents said...

Nothing like nothing will bring out the fire in people as to bring up the issue of money??? Incredible!! Too bad people didnt have this much fire in you when it comes to daily life,politics,freedoms,health,family,etc! We all might be alot further ahead than we are today.

Sorry, explain to me again how the NB HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION FORCES YOU ON WELFARE? Sill ol me, I don't get it I guess.

Connect is always hiring.

They've hired illiterate people that can barely speak English before, I'm sure that they'll take you as well.

There are plenty of places around town that are hiring, why don't you suck it up and get a job already?

I'm not a huge fan of paying taxes which go right back into welfare to feed you when you can't be bothered to get a job.

Honestly man, I hope that someone reports you since you're planning on charging people to comment on your site. If you go to jail then:

1) you're not annoying people around town anymore
2) then we have an excuse to feed you out of our tax money
