    The above is a part of the TOS of Fanbox.

          I wasn't saying it was you, I got a message in the mail that one of my other Hubber friends wanted me to 'confirm our friendship.'  Her photos are apparently in FanBox.
          I decided against it!
          Sorry if I wasn't clear...I see I wasn't!

      Thank you Dame Scribe. Always a pleasure to see you. And, I'll agree. It didn't sound good to me either.

    There is a stink going on at AC because Yahoo bought the site and is posting articles submitted to AC on their Yahoo! site and stealing the page views from the AC writers.

    The TOS AC utilizes has been interpreted to mean Yahoo can even use Display Only content as well as the exclusive content AC pays upfronts for.  The Yahoo! site out ranks AC so the page views do not count on the writer's page view totals.  I think AC is offering $5.00 for the difference!  Phew!   

    Since Yahoo bought AC there have been many problems because of this TOS interpretation.  Beware all TOS agreements no matter where you write!
