Default Shady review sites, and writing for "Exposure"


Note - F-bombs aplenty/Jimquisition warning. NOT a game review this time.

This one's a followup to a recent JQ text article about a former writer for a review site; that site's ownership has (allegedly) engaged in some shady practices; among them: not paying people, and eliminating all traces of their names from the site when they leave...and now they're trying to cover their tracks. Worth checking out.

Handy-dandy pull quotes:

"I just think the next generation of games media deserves a better class of parasite than you."

"If a site can't afford to pay you, it doesn't have the credibility needed to give you the 'exposure' you're being promised." (directed at all writers)
"Judge not, lest ye get shot in your bed while your sleep." - Liz, The Dreadful
"If you villainize people who contest your points, you will eventually find yourself surrounded by enemies that you made." - Philip DeFranco
