Have I become sick and tired or is reality just going through a re-adjustment? Perhaps I have been going through a bit of both. Many firsts have happened to me recently, some good and some not so well.
The constant frustration with Triond is wearing on my nerves. The unending loading pages, that’s if you can even get to the pages. The constant slap in my face called ‘earnings’ and the constant groin-kick I get when I feel my efforts have been sidetracked by a feeling of incompetent managerial decisions.
To add to this is a pressure exerted on myself by my own referrals who are either overwhelmingly not English and therefore don’t understand English, stupid and or lazy because they do understand English and don’t read or even take the time to try and read, downright thieves because of plagiarism, arrogantly out of touch with reality because their crappy, and I mean crappy articles aren’t earning them $2,000 when in fact they should be paying me to read them and using up all my time asking me questions that that wouldn’t ask if they actually took an eighth of the time I have already taken in giving them what I consider valuable information, reading the information.
I have done some firsts lately, some things that I would not have done a year ago. Recenly I have removed articles from the ‘pending’ queue and published them elsewhere. On July 1, I published 3 articles that disappeared. I contacted Triond, but as usual I did not get a reply. I have never received a reply from Triond for anything. When they said they found one of my articles duplicated elsewhere, to my amazement as it is impossible, they pointed me to a Chinese site. I don’t know Chinese. Screw them, they are great articles and I will just post them where they are appreciated by a different competent site.
When I get flooded with the same message from a referral because I am not answer their question, which they should not even be asking, fast enough and they decide to flood the same message to me 10 or 20 times, I quickly, and I mean quickly block them.
When I see a referral of mine plagiarize, I block them. I am not going to waste another minute of my time with someone that lies and cheats and steals and will eventually either be kicked out of Triond or quit because they don’t get things.
I report my referrals if they plagiarize. Yes, I do and I will continue to do this. This shit pisses me off. Too many people here try and spend a lot of time and effort creating their own articles that I just can’t put up with this anymore. Many people here don’t have perfect articles and their English is not great but they are honest and try and work hard and deserve a lot more than these moral-less people.
So, have I become a prick by my standards, yes I think I have. Why? I think because I want a certain ethic in the people I support. I am not perfect but there is a level that all of us have to adhere to. I guess I am feeding both dogs inside me so they can get along better, I am particularly nice to people that try and I feel they deserve a chance and on the other side, once you incite my dark side I act swiftly and accordingly.
Perhaps my days are marked.
