I can assure you, Qercus does pay for contributions. As to them not printing anything negative. I don't believe that is true. I think it will all be down to how the article is written i.e. are you being negative just for the sake of it, or is the article tackling particular areas and being not just negative but also constructive and informative rather than a simple rant that is better left to c.s.a.a. When looking at products to review, don't just stay with the commercial stuff. There is a lot of free applications out there. A lot of which people don't know exist.
