Did anyone else get this e-mail?Hello Eva,

We’re about to get bigger and better and i'm looking for some keen & skilled writers to be a part of it.We've just launched a powerful new self-publishing website that helps people with unique know-how & expertise (i.e. you) connect with our knowledge-hungry audience. The website is called Videojug Pages - http://pages.videojug.com I am searching for a select group of writers & bloggers to become Founder Members on Videojug Pages.

There's no mention of who retains the rights to the work... and does the editor of something as big as Video Jug have time to respond to random questions from people like little old me? Getting a founders' badge isn't really much incentive to me either. It's like when we were kids in school and they'd try to bribe us with stickers.
