ToneaDay - I take it all back

Last week I wrote about toneday.  A site that allows you to rate random phrases for the emotional response that they illicit.  At the time I mentioned that I was unsure about the payout and the details they provided were vague at best.

To qualify at toneaday you first have work your way through some established words and phrases.  At the end your work is reviewed and $5.00 is credited to your account.  I reviews 245 words and phrases, saw my $5.00 balance and am awaiting a verdict on whether I am emotionally intelligent enough for a promotion to the next level (highly doubtful). 

I logged into my account this morning since it had been a few days since I'd finished my qualifying.  Now there's only $2.00 in my account and I am required to give 20% to charity (Red Cross or KIVA).  So basically I earned $0.007 per phrase.  Not quite as advertised.

I'll keep you updated but right now I'm giving toneaday a less than positive review.
