What would you pay for an answer?

Kind of relative to some recent topics on here...I stumpled accross this site: http://www.justanswer.com/.

You can post a question on various topics and an alleged expert will answer it for you. If you are satisfied, you pay them. You are told what the price will be, but you only pay if satisfied. It's on an honor system.

Just curious if anyone tried it...I wanted to try it out with with a simple question to see how reliable it is, but the price I was quoted was $15 and did not feel like paying it or ripping them off.

Just FYI.

What kind of scam are you running here? I did not agree to your fee and you did not answer the original question... these are just negotiations for the price you will accept and I will pay to know if you'd pay for an answer.

So is this for people that don't know how to google? I'm sure those "experts" are just typing the question into google and looking for the best answer.

Don't know about them googling it, that is how I found the site. It says that "experts in the field" are providing answers. I did not feel it was worth the money to request the answer to my question.

It's like ask chacha but they try to charge you. Can you pay less if you are partially satisfied?

I don't ride, I cook!

I guess you do not have to pay if you are not satisfied.
