Didn't the CIA use something like that to extract confessions? 30 seconds and I've already got a headache.

The ones that kill me are:

 

"I have done this for many years I know what it takes, this should only take you 15 minutes, I would do it myself but I do not have time"

 

....

 

They spent 15 minutes posting the job wtf.

LOL. There should be a law against such 'tormenting vocals' or something. Seriously.

No, don't go crazy Rockefeller, you shouldn't be splashing such phenomenal sums around...

 

 

The $25 budget is just a random number, obviously it won't be even remotely to that number,

Seriously, should I flag the job posted by this 'client' as inappropriate? 31 open jobs since October with 0% hired and payment method not verified?

John,

Regarding the client whose profile shows they have posted 35 jobs, but have hired zero people thus far, and currently have 31 open jobs...

 

Obviously experienced and knowledgeable contractors such as ourselves here on the community forum are wise enough to NOT apply to a job with such a "client."

 

Some newbies might, though.

 

But oDesk has made recent announcements about cleaning up their client lists and removing people like this. I believe them. Obviously this is detrimental to the site, and I think that oDesk really is working on new back-end algorithms to help them locate and suspend the accounts of people who post jobs but don't hire.
