Today i did something, I did not think myself capable of doing
I don't have a temper really and I am more of forgive, forget and move on type of a person but once in a while, I do lose my temper and according to those around me, I do so rather spectacularly.
I guess this is what happened today. After about 7-8 weeks, I logged on to my CGP-Gallery account. In almost 2 months I had earned one cent there though it is of no consequence really. I checked my bank and saw the pending status on my two tickets.
I then checked the homepage and read a post that said,"These things (meaning not getting paid) have a way of weeding out those who really are not committed to writing and interaction but their primary purpose is money," as if we are some greedy, slimy sort of people for wanting to get paid for our hard work.
I started burning slowly and then I read a couple of posts where people are still hoping that they would get paid and we should support the admin. I wanted to shout, can't you read the writing on the wall?
This gave me an idea and I decided to leave some writing on the wall of my own. So in the past hour, I have edited over 100 posts on CGP Gallery with the following message:
We cannot delete our posts on CGP Gallery but we can edit them so I am editing my posts on this site to show this message. I refuse to let CGP Gallery make any more use of my articles here.
By refusing to pay and not even acknowledging our pain and despair, they have made it clear, they have no intention of honoring their promise. I have more than 100 posts here which I am going to alter. If the admins wish to delete my account, they are most welcome to do so. Just like Bubblews, I do not wish my name to be associated with this site anymore.
Good luck and goodbye to my friends here.
I don't know how wrong it is ethically, morally or any other way, but it gave me a sense of satisfaction . I may not use those posts anywhere but more importantly, CGP Gallery cannot use my articles, either.
I have had enough of these lying, scamming sites and broken promises from their admins.
