I never said that, so please don't put words in my mouth. I know that you give contributors a t-shirt with one submission, a hat with three and $100 with 6 or more articles. So yes I was wrong in saying that your getting the bulk of the articles for free.To conclude it simply created itself with no monetary investment, labor, or creative effort, is a 100% false assumption.
But lets be honest here, Giving away a t-shirt or a hat and at 6 articles and above your paying 16.66 per article to the members, is almost for free as compared to paying a full time office staff to do the work. I would be willing to bet there have been more than a few that have submitted 3-5 articles and never got the $100. SO it seems to me that your getting the articles almost for free. And when you consider that they are advertising for you for free by wearing you FM t-shirt or hat, then... you are getting the articles for free.
So wheres the bad azz articles on bad azz Fords that we come here for. I don't see them anymore.
