Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

TURKEY: It may still have a useful role in NATO, but that is beginning to be very doubtful. Do you see Erdogan (or Erdoga-Nejad as some people are beginning to call him) acting against his “real” ally, Ahmadinejad? And certainly, Erdogan’s Turkey has no place within the European Union.

Thanks with the blog. I thoroughly appreciated reading it and i became very interested in what you will need to say! I am mostly involed with mister Walter but love it if more got a lot using this. Take care!

Intercourse outlets of yesteryear have established their repute of being dismal and dirty. What with their frosted glass windows hiding a dim and smelly interior filled with a lot of hardcore porn. The sleazy men going in ended up of a questionable repute. No lady with a shred of self-respect would ever before be caught in this kind of an establishment.

One of the things I’m grateful for is that I have such a well informed and articulate group of people, with whom I can discuss games and current things happening.

I was honored to get a call coming from a friend immediately he found out the important recommendations shared on the site. Examining your blog article is a real brilliant experience. Thanks again for thinking of readers at all like me, and I would like for you the best of success like a professional in this field.
