    A guy with a pin to burst your bubble. That's what you get for all your trouble.

    $1000's of dollars in advertising revenue and it led to my comic getting published 15 times in Hustler. Its also made me an internet celebrity. My threads and posting skills have earned me many mad props. Plus the personal satisfaction of knowing I'm the greatest poster many sites have ever seen.

    It gets you nothing, except people asking you for help. People know you from what you've done, not what you talk.

    You are aware that publishers are desperate for content and will publish almost anything.

    I'm fully aware. The days of extremely profitable print media are gone.

    Even the electronic publishers are frantic for programming. It's why there are so many new young adult adventure authors pumping out vampire romance and zombie books now.

    I must write really shitty stories because no one ever published anything I sent out! I want to be important and be published in Hustler, right next to a full page of a woman squatting and urinating cloudy, stinky piss in a juice glass!
