I am totally flabbergasted, gobsmacked by the post on their blog.
Look at the last bullet point, that has to be the dumbest quote in the history of EZA.
I know they say almost, but come on how many people will read the word almost.
So, I can write as an expert using my own name, but it is second rate when I write for someone else. Sorry, that logic doesn't work.
That is like saying, because there are a lot (yes there are) of crap articles on the directory then all of them must be crap. I know they are read by humans, but sometimes you wonder what level of English understanding some of them have, when they allow some articles to go through.
Chris you have a right to run your directory the way you want, but to claim this about ghostwriters is totally crazy. Have you the same principle, do you say that all books in your local bookstore which are ghostwritten are second rate? If not, why not because a ghostwriter is a ghostwriter.
I have ghostwritten offline, and I have ghostwritten for people who have submitted to EZA, and they are written with the same standard in mind.
Sorry, Chris you totally blew it on that one.
Crappy articles have nothing to do with a pen name, crappy articles are written by people who have no idea how to write articles, and know they can get away with it because your people allow them through.
