I just can't help but comment....--veinglory

You know I defend the right of any writer to work for free or for any rate they deem sufficient. But the following ad still cracked me up, bold type added:

"I'm looking for writers who would like to write erotic stories and/or articles. All the writing has to be done with good taste, I'm not looking for 'cheap' porn. It has to be erotic and sensual!

Right now I'm looking for people who are not looking for a lot of money for their work. I am able to pay about $2 per 500-750 word story/article but I will take volume, like a 100 articles/stories. Please note that I would like to have the option to resell your work. If you do not agree with these terms, please do not respond."

So for $2 they're asking for at least 500 words, or at least 100 articles...oh, and they want full rights so they can resell your work [obviously for more then $2!].

Wow. I thought the publishers in comics had some serious gall.

Won't be responding to that call. *shakes head*

*Somebody* will respond, though. It's inevitable.

It's the reselling bit that gets me - you effectively lose all rights over your story for ever, for the measly sum of $2. Wow.

Damn, now where do I go with my cheap porn? I'll tell ya, I'm running out of market possibilities.

So... he's buying ALL RIGHTS for two bucks? Umm, sure, good luck with that. Good grief!
