It is a good article, but there is one characteristic I have seen many times that is missing: Many seem to think that SM can be outsourced.
SM is a highly personal medium, one where the character of the participant comes through, if not at first,then certainly over time, and outsourcing is a bit like employing your friend who writes great poetry to write some for your unrequited lover, pretending to be you. Always fails in the end when she finds out, and there is no way back.
Perhaps tht is why SM examiner is so successful, not only full of good stuff, but it is Michael writing it, unless there is a guest post, in which case,we get to know the guest poster, like being introduced by a friend.
