Pros: you may win a "medal" is you write endless columns.
Cons: they take your talent and ideas and provide "medals."
You write free columns that are edited by college students who will put more errors into your work. There is no humor, and there is a great deal of patronizing. They seem friendly, but you are a number. Successful people are already in place and they aren't moving.
They are against free speech and are never grateful no matter how much you do.
