    It's interesting. Worth a look.

    It might be interesting, but it also freezes my browser. Don't think I'll make another attempt to get in.

    It would be helpful if you gave us some idea what this site is or why it is interesting. I don't generally click in random sites - too easy to collect unwanted spyware or similar problems.

    It's a site that authors can post short stories on for download. Supposedly readers pay 99 cents to download and for each download the author gets 30 cents. They claim to be "The i-tunes for stories".

    I'm pretty sure it will be a waste of every author's time and first world publishing rights to post stories their. I doubt you'd ever get enough downloads to get you more money than if you'd just sold the story, but who knows.

    Based on the fact I never heard about it before, I'd say I'm fairly confident that site is not going to have enough of a reading audience to be useful.

    And you'd be right, as it's gone now.

    Thanks for reinforcing my decision not to bother with display sites. ... Now to get my own up if I can get all the pieces put together.
