To increase the take of M.Q. and his pals, another trick was to ‘rate’ articles based on no real criterion.
There were ‘high value’ articles, which would be paid at X rate, there were ‘low value’ articles which would be paid at 1/2 X.
High Value articles were published by M.Q. and his Shills and ‘low value’ by just about everyone else.
Reality was that Staff Writers and Writers were being ripped off by M.Q. with his false accounting.
This high/low was a sham to allow M.Q. and his Shills to appear to earn the most money but were actually stealing money earned by others.
These weren’t glitches, accidents, etc. This was a plan. This was deliberate.
