Should You Ever (ever) Pay to Have Your Work Read?

Should You Ever (ever) Pay to Have Your Work Read?
I remember when I was so arrogant about my poetry that I felt it demeaning to enter contests, oh how those times have taken a leap into reality. Nowadays it is very hard to publish and or find an agent. There millions of submissions and the slush piles are for every author not already published and or "a perfect writer". Publishers and agents seem to want already-made writers, with a ton of experience in marketing. This article is good advice however; it would be a lot better if contests actually made comments on work submitted and not just accepted it or turned it down.
