Doesn't Matter How You Dress It Up, It's Still a Reading Fee, Kiddies

According to Ralan.com, Son & Foe magazine is now offering a special deal wherein they will fast-track their responses to your submissions. You can hear back from them in a speedy 72 hours...if you pay them $1.

Here's a quiz: You're a pro-paying magazine that wants to keep paying your writers well, but you're running out of funds. Do you:

A) Open up to advertizing?

B) Charge a subscription fee?

C) Find investors?

D) Try to milk as much money as possible out of the very writers you claim to treat so well?

If you answered A, B or C, you're a magazine with a future.

If you answered D, you might as well change your name to Bob's Online Amateur Hour for the one or two issues you have left before closing for good.
