I just got a Webmaster World Stickymail headed "Copywriting services" that read:
"I am contacting you regarding article writing services. I have been writing for the last 3 years. Currently I am working with [Specifics Removed]. Visit the link below to view some of my work: [link removed]
"I charge $10 for 400 words article. I will be glad working with you."
Ten bucks? And that's the *asking* price? Publishers need to remember the adage that "You get what you pay for."

To be honest... I pay $3.00/page for grammatically correct placeholder copy. A freelance writer is not a Subject Matter Expert no matter how good their wordsmithing is and SMEs generally cost $5.00/word or more.
