In Response To: Not looking to get rich - just a home based job online job (Chris Campbell)
Someone mentioned writing articles and provided a URL. Good idea, most anyone can do this type of thing. Can you code HTML? This also can provide quite a bit of work to just about anyone, anywhere.
Two other sources of this type of work are "rent-a-coder" - http://www.rentacoder.com - and "get-a-freelancer" - http://www.getafreelancer.com
Here is another that has surprised me time and time again. "Craigs List" - -http://www.craigslist.org - navigate your way to your state and then locally and look around in "jobs", "services", "gigs". I'm always surprised to see people looking for computer work from home doing something for them, legitimate jobs. Perhaps even post your ability to write (or whatever) in the "services" section. CraigsList is a wonderful source of a ton of things (good place to get rid of all your junk too in the "free" section!).

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
