Talk about a wretched Web 2.0 experience! I was so excited a year ago when I was invited to participate in the Corante Web Hub. Not only have I never been paid as promised, I don’t know anyone else who has either. Worst of all though I, and I believe at least one other person, have resigned, quit, said “get me the heck off your site” and gotten NO response! If I was still writing here, all my posts would be getting sucked onto their stupid site. (Oops! I guess this one is, huh???) I’m still listed as a participant. Ken, the editor and a great guy, says it’s not his department to remove me from the site. I’ve sent several emails. It’s really bumming me out. I thought it was a great idea at first, but it became apparent pretty quickly that it was going to get messed up – and now look at the mess I’ve gotten myself into.
Probably not a huge big deal – there’s loads of scraping splogs out there around the web, but I’m amazed that Corante can’t do better than this.
