Readers of 'Kicking Asphalt' Can Now Comment on the Stories They Read

Comment Suggestions: "Brilliant", "Funny", "Life-Changing", and "Didn't Make Me Want to Puke"

We've finally caved to both our need for positive reinforcement and our masochistic tendencies and have enabled 'Kicking Asphalt' readers to leave comments on KA stories.

Remember all those times you've thought to yourself, "How dare they offer me discounts on environmentally-themed children's books?" or "Tips on how to save gas? Not on my watch!"? Well, now you don't have to lock those opinions away in a place deep within you where they'll slowly burn until one day you flip out and attack the guy reading your electric meter.

Thanks to the wonders of technology, you can make your opinions known right away. Think of all the money you'll save on therapy! All you have to do is read a 'Kicking Asphalt' article in its entirety (that's the hard part), then click on the "post a comment" link at the bottom of the page. It's so simple that even an enewsletter editor can do it!

We want to hear from all of our members (except for Jennifer Allen from Wilmington, NC, we've already heard plenty from her). So if you're not Jennifer Allen, we ask you to leave comments on all of our articles, starting with this one.

  • You say that everyone who votes for BWC will get a free Tesla Roadster. I find this hard to believe, because they cost $98,000. If you are not, in fact, going to give away one to every person who votes for BMC and if this is some sort of contest, you should say so.

  • Hi Tim,

    The headline about the complimentary Tesla Roadsters was from a separate story (not the one your commented on). That headline has an asterisk (*) at the end of it. If you read the story, you will see this note at the end:

    [*NOTE FROM THE SEVERELY OVERWORKED BWC LEGAL DEPARTMENT: Better World Club will not actually be giving away Tesla Roadsters for votes. However, if a few "fall off a truck" and come into our possession, we'll cut you a great deal on them.]

    In other words, the giveaway was a joke.

  • Great idea, but I don't know how to handle your 'Chose and identity in red'. marv
