    I'm curious to hear from anyone who may have work for this company as a writer or guide. I had a rather odd experience with them. Thanks.

    If you check the Freelance board, you'll find the SEO/Content/Blog Networks, and an About.com thread with literally years of discussion.

    Thanks very much. I just saw some news articles about their recent settlement of a class action suit brought against them by former "guides," which is what I was being considered for. I also found lots of complaints on Writer's Weekly. Glad I dodged that bullet!
