Ok, other than a “sweep” what causes a termination. :)

Dave,

Account termination is something that we take very seriously…and it’s not something that is ever decided on a whim. There are processes in place to ensure the relationship can’t be saved before a termination decision is made… and in some cases, there never was a relationship to be saved (ie: a gamer/spammer).

History has a lot to do with it. We track a lot… and build trust data profiles to help us predict future behavior by every member.

All,

Despite that I continue to hear from our members privately that they think the whole site is run by me alone and a bunch of servers…

The truth is that we’re a 30 person full time team of editors, quality control, member support and development/network admins team.

My point: Our team deserves the credit much more than I as they all play an important role in supporting all of the activities that make this site work.

This may be out of point… But I would like to thanks Chris for adding new relevant categories. Now I can finally place my articles into the “right” category.

I would love to get a mouse/mug. But I am not in those countries stated. :P

Hi Chris!

I hope that all authors will write original articles giving valuable information and advice, because this is what people want to read.

If we want to have their attention, instead of self-promoting we must help them solve their problems. Nobody cares for what is not helpful.

I trust you are not getting so big that you are allowing your customer service to lapse? This must be a huge effort on your part and it must be so difficult for you not to forget the little people? You are have a huge site, great stats and are the king of article submission sites. I am sure of it and bow to your greatness.
