From a disgruntled former participant of Writer Beat:
When you approached me asking me if you could cross-post my article I agreed with some hesitation, because having looked through your site I saw many anti-Israel and outright anti-Semitic comments. I agreed eventually that you could cross-post but asked you to moderate the comments so that they don't veer into antisemitism.
You did not fulfill one of the requests that I asked, and furthermore you violated all the standards of "netiquette" that every blogger knows.
You asked if you could cross-post my article. When I agreed, lo and behold I found that I had been added to your "stable" of writers as a blogger at Writer Beat. I never asked to be added as a writer. Cross-posting means that YOU post an article in YOUR name, mentioning that I wrote it, with a link back to my blog. It does NOT mean adding a blogger to your own site as a writer. I edited my article to add a link back to my article, which in hindsight, (see below) was a grave mistake.
I asked that you pay attention to the comments on my article. Well, it's obvious that either you can't moderate, you don't care, or you actively support the opinions expressed therein which all, except for one, expressed anti-Semitic opinions. Any of those options above do not speak well of you, and I do not want to be associated with such a blog.
I considered deleting my article, but I thought maybe someone will learn some authentic news about Israel, or that it will bring readers to my blog. BIG MISTAKE.
As you can see below, it did bring a reader, who quotes your email address. And what a disgusting, vile specimen it brought!! If you think that such a comment is valid commentary on another blog, then you should be reported for cyber-stalking and supporting terrorism.
I have now deleted my article that was at your site, and I hereby revoke any permission that I have given you, or that you THINK I might have given you, to cross-post anything from my blog in the future.
I regret any association that I have had with you and your blog.
See below for the comment left on my blog today. The post was about a Palestinian terror attack in Jerusalem.
