These days whenever I log in to BHW, I always find a thread started by a writer offering articles for free. No, I am not against such a trend but I am just amazed to see the meteoric rise in the number of people following this mad race of freebies. It is clear that these guys are desperate to get clients and nothing can beat freebies, when it comes to alluring people. The trend seems harrowing because these days when a client approaches me he initially asks for a freebie or popularly known as sample article. If I say No for it, he says in a sarcastic tone that other writers are openly giving freebies what's the problem with you. The precedent set by the guys offering free articles is negative. I am sorry to say this but admins got to make some rule in regards to freebies. In fact, the best idea would be to make a rule wherein a guy starting a thread related to freebie has to take permission from the mods. Just another day, I saw a thread wherein a writer started a thread offering a free article, to each member who comments on the thread. Within a day, there were more than 100 comments on the thread. I went on to read each and every comment and found that many senior members and J. VIP's giving negative reviews still the demand for free articles was on. I mean, what's the purpose of getting such an article, which will only reap you negative results. I'd love to hear from you guys because personally speaking, I don't mind seeing a thread once or twice a month offering freebies but starting such threads after every couple of days doesn't make sense at least to me. Please correct me if I am wrong in my assessment but please also give your views. Thanks.
