An interesting business model

After Huff Puff, we get Huff Poof - and not a single writer I would bother reading ... quite an achievement, considering Dale is claiming ninety of them.

And here we have a repeat of that rather interesting business model ... you work for me for nothing, and I'll get rich on the back of it. "I have signed up more than 90 people, who will help me build it into a major internet forum for comment and news", writes Dale. What is it about these suckers people that they can so easily be taken to the cleaners? And whatever happened to "... the new site is more online magazine than blog. I have no ambition for it at all"?

Perhaps they need a Yorkshireman's perspective: "If thee does owt fer nowt, do it fer thessen".
