Well, it’s a fair question based on pure objective research by at least two long-time writers on Virily. Well my post has solicited questions in this regard and although I have copied and pasted the many really blaze’ adds I wanted to be taken seriously about an apparent lack of subscriber control. Several writers have asked where the suspect members are, so, I have decided to select 4 entries from several hundred such bogus members.
Here they are, with my selection criteria.
This particular example was less blatant with regards to the extent of customer satisfaction.
This is just one of several Lawyer firms
*Web Marketing Agency India-
*This final example is selected because, in spite of being on the site for 3 years and receiving many Virils, he has never written any posts?
3 years-0-posts-300 virils?
https://virily.com/users/justin-jersey/Finally, whether there is a response to my posts or not, I have said whaT I NEEDED to say and if I can stand and look on as if double standards are the norm in the new millennium and that I should ignore it, and go with the flow, then I have never been true to myself and writing has for me, then also been a huge sham.
Are double standards acceptable?
It is similar to what went on at the old myLot years back before Virily with a few opportunists gumming up the works for everybody else.
Hello Ann, I get your point, but where else can someone write some useful content and get a fair payment for their work? I don’t think there is another site like this one that pays more. Regards, Andre’
RFLoL Andre, but I get more $$ playing skill games online…oops…now everybody knows. Hah, but I have so much going on off the computer I don’t get around to doing those much anymore either.
I do not support the double standards. Many members are working on this site every day.
Yes, they are working so hard to produce content for others to enjoy while the majority of Virily subscribers are not doing anything here, but advertise for free. Thanks for commenting, Vidocka, I appreciate it. Andre’
I agree with you on this post.
I reported one yesterday and that post has gone but I do not know if the user has gone too
I reported to of what you have posted here. I will wait and see if these two vanish into thin air
If users can report as and when they come across those who break rules it will help the site immensely. I am a newbie here.
You are right, Grace, that should work. It would, of course, be better if there is a screening process of all users pages before they can join.
In the meantime if users can spot and report violations and help the site that would be good
It certainly is not fair that I always strive to prepare new posts that I think others will enjoy and then have members who don’t try or strive for anything get Virils anyway.
Your answer hits the nail on the head, Sandra, It is exactly why I posted these two posts. We obviously don’t all agree, 14% said that double standards are fine, in the poll and 86% don’t accept double standards. judging by the comments, the poll is an accurate reflection of the community’s response. 33 read the article of which only 8 responded in the poll, the balance abstained.
I have wondered about many members who are not active, not sure if anything can be done.
Carol, I research only 1000 of the 5,500 members. As the legit percentage, I counted those who just did not start, due to death, illness, lack of know-how, etc. Those with intent to score free advertising made up about 30% I believe that the true figure when eliminating only the “free-loaders” won’t be far from 30%. As for what to do with rule-breakers in any organization, warnings are issued, and if still disregarded, they are blocked from signing into their accounts. enforcement is not hard, If we want to take down an article, Admin just does it, right?
Wow you have been busy. I agree Admin should do something about some of these that are breaking the rules. 30% is a very high number. I would be concerned if this was my site.
Double standards are a fact of life. Nothing says that you must participate in everything. I believe there are all kinds of people who just “look” all day and do the least amount on any sites to possibly get paid one day. I have given up the worries long ago.
Something should be done about these bogus members. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
I am not certain it is fair to call them bogus. Nothing says they have to write to participate. You can view only if you so desire. I doubt they make much money.
Fine Ghostwriter, I partially withdraw, so, let me rephrase, what I am saying is that people whose links I have included above do in no way comply with said rules for Virily writers/users in that every one of them are advertising their business directly and when I last checked, it was even an infringement to include personal business hotlinks. If advertising prostitution techniques, Cannabis discounts hotel accommodation Taxi services, even Crime Scene Cleaning, I’m fine with that, as long as we are all allowed to do so.
Thanks for commenting LindaOH, I believe, this is how we go about getting things changed, perhaps if a few more thought it was wrong to break the rules and enough of them commented on articles like these, then management would do something. So far, only 33 users/members out of 5500 thought it worth their while, to read this post…
