abqwriter – 2008-06-03 9:15 AM As the saying goes, “Follow the money”. I’m having a hard time doing that with this. Ok, so the website gets maybe 10,000 people willing to submit their work and give up the rights to that work. All but a handful of those submissions are going to be of such poor quality that no one would pay to read them. The few that are good – where are the website hosters going to make money off of them? Nobody sets up a website with a group of investors without the end goal being to make money. Where are these people going to make money? I can’t figure it out, and that’s why I think there is something I’m missing in the whole scheme of things.

They’re asking people to PAY to read the submissions?  I thought this was just another Google AdSense scheme (not scam!)
