Well, an update:
Our new Basic or Platinum Membership has helped us sort the quality articles from the “not so quality”… and the system appears to be working.
Platinum authors are the ones with the Yellow star next to their name.
Sometime in February…
So this guy calls us up and leaves a voice mail about buying EzineArticles.com… because it’s been down for the past 3 days and he thought we might be for sale.
At first, I couldn’t figure out what the heck he was talking about because our 3rd party monitoring service (Keynote’s RedAlert) indicated that we have had perfect uptime for the past month.
Then I realized…
Aoccdrnig to rscheearch codnutced at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn’t mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are tpyed, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit oedrer.

…Thought you might enjoy the humor in this post today. :-)
If you’re an author or editor, please give at least a “preview” or “once over” before submitting your articles to us. We’re about to raise our standards to start rejecting articles that are poor spelling wise…as we just don’t have the time to fix every mistake.
Wanted to give a shout out and introduce my readers to the High Rankings Forum.
A handful of new EzineArticles members have come our way because of the High Rankings forums… :-)
Here’s a link:
The more I work with “PhD” author types, the more I am convinced that they are not any smarter than the rest of us.
Don’t get me wrong… I am going to earn my PhD as well, but I hope I never become so smart that I forget how to communicate well.
If you earned the PhD rank in life, please don’t follow your PhD cousins by sending in 500 word paragraphs for your articles. ;-) Sheesh.
Just because you are smart does not mean you can communicate well… Something to keep in mind if you are trying to reach the masses with your intelligence. :)
Only took one week and 1 day for us to have our first Platinum member to be demoted to basic level.
If the body of your article is a sales pitch or thinly disguized sales pitch, you may leave us no choice to demote or revoke your membership account.
Dr Phil says, “you either get it or you don’t.”
As hundreds of new articles go through my fingers on a daily basis, it’s amazing how clear cut the emerging two types of authors are:
1) Those who do not keyword optimize their articles
2) Those who optimize their articles with maximum keyword density
My thoughts about how you can ride both fences without getting your article rejected from our directory:
Just wanted to publicly thank all of the forum posters in the Warrior Forums that have been sending a handful of new members to our site.
Also, the Internet Based Mom’s site is also recognized and appreciated!
If there is another forum that mentions EzineArticles.com, let me know!
Hi… Are you a frequent blogger?
How do you handle COMMENT SPAM?
You know, the evil spam that is added by unscrupulous humans with no ethics that try to get their links added to your blog by posting COMMENT SPAM.
This blog is not really heavily trafficed and yet I get 20-50 comment spams a day… Yeeeesh!
What’s the solution?
Yes… if you sensed big changes were underway… you’d have guessed right.
We’re introducing a new model that has never been done before…
But, it’s a secret until a few more dozen VIP’s are notified.
