In a way I get it...
...it will filter out the utter dross that is out there.
I sort of get the idea behind it..if you write a great book, that is 500 pages long and everyone reads the whole book, why should you get paid the same as someone who writes a load of crap that is 50 pages long and people can't get past page 2.
So I sort of get it, but then again, I can see the argument against it.
I'm going to sit on the fence on this one.
