Ten years ago, M.Q. started a site, unaware of the mentality of average users of a writing site. He thought he would have to pay people to run around posting;
“This is the Great Site! They Always Pay!”
Today, no one needs to pay a Shill, for there are volunteers.
No one needs to pay anyone to defend his site; idiots will do it for nothing;
“X broke the rules! That’s why her articles were confiscated!”
People who know nothing about a site are nevertheless are willing to attack other users who point out flaws and faults and scams and tricks.
People are willing to attack, report, insult, their fellow writers, for nothing.
