Bots and proposals

I just noticed that when a client asks those stupid custom questions they get less proposals vs no question asked postings.  Recently there were two jobs posted.  Both were relatively high paying jobs (both needed 6 connects) one had 2-3 questions that needed to be answered.  After 4 days that posting attracted less than 10 proposals.  Today another job was posted without any custom questions.  In less than 15 mins. it had between 20-50 applications.

Yep, probably bots are not yet able to answer custom questions. I'm sure this will be fixed soon. 🙂

In general, the abundance of bots is a problem.

Yup.....it seems those custom questions are acting as natural bot fighters!!
