Deathbed Confessions

Postby 420Writer » Mon Jan 30, 2012 7:52 am

I've done my last article for Demand. It was quickly approved last night just before midnight CST.

So, now I can confess some things that if they ever happened to leak would have lead to my permissions being revoked immediately... (hey, DMS was easy money between projects for me for years.)

Confession #1 - The Trojan War
I wrote a really simple article on a basic home improvement project. I used a book as a reference. This book is like a handyman's Bible. The CE sent it back saying "I can't check your reference. You need to provide an online reference before this article can be approved." I ask for assistance from a friend who typed a website address into the comments section. The website was loaded with Trojans and the Windows Security virus. The great thing about this particular site was that Porn pop-ups would completely cover the screen, blocking the Windows Security loading box. Hit submit and waited. The article sat for about 10 days. It was finally approved with a note: "I'm not the original CE. Apparently there was a problem with the reference link."
NAH? Really?

Confession #2 - The Alter MeCe
I created a CE account several years ago just to make fun of writers. My friends and I would get stoned as hell and read the articles out loud. I would pick up titles that were stupid to begin with like "how to cure Herpes with Cod Liver oil". We would laugh so hard we would almost piss our pants. Some of the sad attempts at journalism still echoe through my house by those who remember them fondly. "boar down on it!"
I approved some of the WORST writing ever. It wasn't worth the money to actually edit anything, and I actually felt a little bad for doing it. So, I quit approving and just read, laughed and let them drop. My priveledges were then removed for not meeting the quota and the laughter stopped. Then a "review" came from Eve and the laughter started all over again. How she can take herself seriously is beyond me!

TL;DR version: I was a bad girl sometimes.

OK... I feel better now... confession is good for the soul.. or so they say..

LOL.

I'm sure that a lot of this type of stuff has been going on over the years.

LOL I thought about making a fake CE profile just for fun. I'd robo-approve just because I know how badly it sucks writing for these people, but I also know that the writing by some of the outsourcers and WAHMs must suck so bad.

I wish I had done it, because now it would just be stupid to get a CE account. There's nothing to edit.

You just got fucked because you got Eve. That bitch just likes to talk down to people, and I haven't heard on CE mention that they like her or have had anything but a bad experience with her. Most companies who give a shit would tell the manager to tone down the shit, but no, Eve can do whatever she wants. Some people are brilliant at what they do, but they are horrible managers. Companies need to recognize stuff like that and do something about it or they get what they have here: CEs/writers venting anonymously.

You can't always get what you want. But if you try sometime, you just might find, you get what you need.
