A crazy idea: Perhaps instead of only identifying our authors as “Expert Authors” or “Platinum quality level authors”, we could create a new level of author status:
Expert Neuron Original Author
Definition: Unique type of author found in the EzineArticles.com community that is specialized to write and submit original content articles that they wrote directly from their own neuro-network rather than the neuro-net of someone else (such as a ghostwriter).
Now, ghostwriters, don’t get all bent out of shape on me over this as I’m not saying ghost writing is bad, wrong or evil. I’m saying your clients are bad, wrong and evil when they fail to quality control articles they purchase from low voltage ghostwriters.
Does anyone know of any industry standards group to help separate the evil ghostwriters who sell their clients plagairized crap vs. the honest and hard working ghostwriter?
Some in the ‘woo woo’ camps say that there is no such thing as an “original thought”, but there are clearly articles written by original authors who deserve a different level of respect than the author who bought the articles they posted on our site.
What do you think?
