Just an FYI to all potential entrants -- the Miss Snark blog rips this contest up, down, right and left for being expensive, sloppily assembled and somewhat inaccurate in how it presents itself on its website.

If you're interested in the whole string, it's in the Sept. archives at http://misssnark.blogspot.com, which are currently down.

Friends, if you're thinking about entering this, please examine the web site info closely. This group puts itself forward as an "agency" who has no sales and no clients to report. Do we really want to promote this?
