    Ok, I did a search but didn't find anything about this so if this is a DP please forgive me. Does anyone have any information on suite101.com.
    This was the latest ad, but didn't know what the pay was or if it was even worth the time to do it. Seems pretty informal which smells of low pay, but didn't know if anyone else has researched this.

    Rudy, why do you enjoy watching newspapers self-destruct?
    (The ad is a come-on, by the way. Sets you up with a blog, either for a price, or a cut of your future, non-existent advertising earnings.)

    I enjoy it because they largely brought it on themselves. They missed an entire generation of readers with their arrogance of they need us more than we need them and now they are paying the price for it. It sucks that a lot of my friends have lost jobs, but sadly I predicted this debacle four years ago and got out of the business.

    Someone get this guy an award. He thought about it four years ago.

    He's so brilliant yet, considering Suite 101.

    The whole scheme certainly seems like it might be just that.

    I'm thinking Rudy might want to check out Porn 101 instead and educate himself as to what a DP really is.
