Yeah. The worst thing about the writers having to act as advertising copywriters for the mega bucks 
art world is that, unlike real advertising copywriters, they're paid so shitly for it. You're supposed to just 
live off the kudos and free drinks or something. 

According to my inside source, Frieze actually have a policy of no rudeness at all in reviews. That 
said, that very inside source subsequently received not one but two rude reviews in the mag.  They're 
absolutely the only ones I've ever read there though.
