One bonus that I didn’t know we would be getting from adding the ability for anyone to comment on any article is that article thieves are pointed out and spotted in a self-policing efficient manner.
So far, only two authors have lost their accounts due to being ‘outted’ by either the original author or someone who knows the original author.
As you may know, we don’t accept non-original content.
So far about 300 article comments have been added since we launched this system and when it reaches 700-1000 comments, we’ll introduce another innovation that we’re dreaming up right now.
I send this blog post to warn those who would rip off anyone else’s material that not only are we watching vigilently for violations, but now hundreds of thousands of our monthly visitors are helping to police our site so that dishonest authors are shown the exit door.
