Curangel certainly makes a difference to authors when they are curated and that is great to keep people motivated and active. However I have seen occasions where curated posts probably wouldn't be called quality standard, and trust me those were an objective view of quality, not subjective! In addition, I notice a few curated post in the past were plagarised or recycle and wasn't picked up by the curator.
I'm not dissing Curangel because as I've said already,it is great that such a stron curation guild is around to support content creators. My two cents worth is just that it would be great for curators to be bit more diligent and not let the abusers slip through when there could be another more genuine hardworking author out there.
