    Well, I think this is absolutely the best idea HP have had for ages and will do a great deal to improve quality on the site and get the hardworking HubPages staff the money they richly deserve.

    Choice quotes from the piece are:

    $5 is an absolute bargain!

    At last, even terrible writers will be able to feature. Something we can all agree was long overdue.

    Another great idea to reduce the burden on overworked staff. I think Simone is going to have to work hard to make her wage, but we can all agree that with the number of posts she makes, the $0.10 needs to be set at that level to avoid her taking *all the monies*!

    HP, I salute you for this and look forward to being part of this brave new world and the dawning of a brighter future for HubPages.

    I signed up and got everything set up.
    Simone was pleased. Since I was the first person to sign up, Simone said she is even going to send me one of her bows as a memento.

      Yes. Now that'll be $0.20.

    I am not sure everyone is in the right mood about this issue to enjoy a jolly joke about it.

    What a great idea!  Simone may have to work overtime, but we all know she doesn't sleep anyway.
