Choosing My Battles

There's gotta be a better way.

As I reevaluate the ethics of my blogging, I am once again challenged with a puzzle. Recently I was frustrated to have one of my payperpost reviews rejected after it had been posted for seven days. I wrote to payperpost regarding their business practices - suggesting a 24-48 hour turnaround to make things fair for all involved. I never heard back from them.

I also wrote to them regarding trouble I had trying to post a recent review. I spent two hours researching, writing, posting, deleting, changing links - and still, the site refused my entry as is, saying I had missing links (which I didn't). This issue never got resolved so the review never got posted and I wasted valuable time. I still haven't heard back from payperpost.

Today I received a rejection notice on a review I posted THIRTY DAYS AGO. The rejection claims to have been because of "font size." Bullshit! There were no restrictions regarding font size when I accepted the opportunity. All guidelines and expectations are listed when we accept an opportunity.

Plus, it's an advertisement. It's my practice to make a distinguishing difference. But even more than that -- this falls under my original complaint of getting approval/rejection within a timely manner. Thirty days is nothing close to timely. It's blatant STEALING. Abuse of payperpost's services. And payperpost ALLOWS this. Therefore, they've stolen from me.

I've written to yet again. Still with ZERO RESPONSE.

It was the final straw for me. I wrote to the Better Business Bureau outlining my complaints. The BBB had no information on PPP prior to this morning.

If PPP would just reply to me - even if to say, "your email has been received," I might have taken a different route. I want PPP to succeed. But only ethically. And I only want my blog to be involved in ethical business practices.

Still, I've gotten paid for past approved reviews. I continue to accept opportunities. I believe payperpost could be a very good thing - and it is most of the time. I'm just choosing my battles. Now, if they stop paying me for approved posts, my passive-activism may take a different stance.

Come on payperpost - I want to hear from you!
