Since we’ve started up in our site relaunch last August 5th, 2004 — we’ve rejected 4,771 articles (about 10.5% of all articles submitted) that didn’t meet our posted editorial guidelines.
Today I had a crazy thought about creating a separate site to showcase the rejected articles …if for entertainment value alone as I hate the idea of throwing those articles into the digital bit bucket.
The only reason I haven’t begun plans to make this a possibility is because we do not want to create enemies on purpose.
In such a project, we wouldn’t include duplicate articles or plagiarized/trademark/copyright infringement works, but we would include articles that were too high in self promotional content, had affiliate links in them, were over-keyword optimized or had very poor punctuation, grammar, spelling, etc…
What issues or obstacles do you think we should address before making such a project become a reality?
