There are many online article websites out there, but some will end up screwing you out of your articles or losing them when submitting. This is a dastardly thing. One that I have heard of will constantly screw you out of articles at about the rate of one per hundred and this also screws you out of your rankings.
What can we do about this utter abuse of power, dishonesty and disreputable-ness? Well we as online article authors can tell the world and destroy the credibility of such sites and go with a better, more advanced and preferred site, which does not inadvertently lose, dismiss or delete your articles.
How serious is this problem? Well, it is serious enough for the number one most prolific online article writer in the history of the Internet to mention it and write an article on it? Yes, I am the World's most prolific online article writer in the history of the Internet and no one is close.
Additionally, I believe if we cannot trust the systems we use to put up our creative and non-fiction works on the Internet then we cannot trust the Internet to disseminate information or to share varying perspectives and therefore the Internet is worthless.
There are too many agencies, private interests and folks out attempting to destroy the Internet, which is current the greatest tool of delivering information to human species. Surely, mankind has come further than this, what a cheap shot. Anyone can censor information or screw over those who disseminate it. Only a real man can see truth. Consider this in 2006.
