Yeah I expect a person online to actually know more about gaming than these guys. Clearly the lack of pay is attracting less skilled writers and turning away good ones.

Well duuuuh, but if he's gonna plaigarize then he might as well do it right. I learned to in high school so this guy should be able to as well.
