How to Fire Qualified Writers
Well, it’s good to see that a few of you are still kicking around out there.
Our last post attracted quite a few comments, which is always fun to see.
We know that there’s a problem with the forums and we’re working on it. So if you could just hold those opinions for a bit longer, we’ll unleash the hounds.
So can anyone else confirm the whole “CEs signing their names to edits” now? Is this everyone?
Here’s another piece of fan mail that popped through the DSS door.
Feel free to keep the comments and tips comin’.
DS seems to be randomly “firing” highly educated writers who have proficient scores of 4/4 and up. This makes no sense even for DS.
When the axed writers get the “email” there is no explanation. One writer who had been with the studio for 3 years and had consistently produced 1000′s of high quality articles was placed in Writer Evaluation, which he ACED and then was let go anyway.
What kind of business model could this represent?
Thanks for the line! What type of business model indeed?!!
Maybe one that has a stock chart like this?

Well, what do you know?
We make one simple post and all of a sudden the DSS community and the haters come back to life! Seventeen comments on our last post.
There was even mention of sperm!
It really is just like the good old days.
We’ve even received another in our long line of “quit it” letters…
Please remove my name from your site’s front page. The poster’s opinion of me and all other XXXXXXXX in the world is stated as fact, when it is, indeed, just an opinion. Thank you for your kind consideration.
Man! That’s nuts! What are you guys doing down there!
On that note – a couple of commenters have pointed out that they’re having some issue with the forums.
Never fear, Richard Head is here.
I’ll get on our resident nerd Richard to poke his head in there and see what’s going on.
We’re so glad to see all of you back!
Even the haters! Remember how they kept talking about us running out of money?!!
Don’t worry, losers, we can stretch out five bucks a month for a loooooonnng time.
We’re just waiting for Demand to buy us out.
It’s workers day! And what better way to celebrate and visit DSS for some good old bitching.
I just noticed the date of the last post – March 1st! Eeeeek!
What can we say, both Richard and I have been involved with other projects, which you may or may not be hearing about in the near future.
First up – it’s our three year anniversary! Who would have thought that we’d be still here, more or less, plugging along three years later?
But I was able to poke my head in through the door of the Studio and noticed a couple of things. Wanted to make a note [...]
DSS Regular Another One Bites the Dust dropped us this little snippet from the DMS forums:
“I was recently disheartened and disappointed to be told I am ineligible to write education articles. I have 25 years of classroom experience. I have taught at the middle school, high school and university levels. I have a doctorate in education, a masters degree in teaching history and a masters degree in curriculum and instruction.
