Damn, I am relatively new to this freelance game on oDesk, and out with I have always worked in an agency that had project managers who faced off the bad clients. So far on oDesk my ratio is 1 bad out of 7 good. More fun to look forward to....

Hi all, I’ve removed several posts to this thread as they violate the spirit of our Forum Rules. Specifically, we ask that when posting here you, “…treat each other with respect and behave in a manner fit for a professional work environment.” Please be considerate of this moving forward. Thanks,

Hi valeria! sorry if my any word was against policy. Tried to explain the real story, so others can be careful.

Hi Valeria, I totally agree with "treat[ing] each other with respect and behave in a manner fit for a professional work environment" But with respect I think you could have left in the first two, or four, of the deleted posts as they contained a claim about the way things are, and a rebuttal that the statement was too generalised - nothing more - and I believe those early posts were intended to be helpful to users. Where it went from there - well, suffice to say I believe some behaved more professionally than others...

I don't know why any of them got deleted, if this is how it's going to be with the new mod, she will be deleting lots of comments.

Still confused why mine were deleted....I have been searching the T&C's but still can't find 'potato' or 'apple' under offensive things to say....

[quote=Natasha R.]I don't know why any of them got deleted, if this is how it's going to be with the new mod, she will be deleting lots of comments.[/quote] This is ridiculous! It is interesting that the one being unprofessional here is the one with comments still posted. Now, this post doesn't even reflect Stephens legitimate concern for what a reader might take away from these "you can expect 3-5 per year--regardless...blah, blah" comments. For anyone reading, NO, you should not expect 3-4 bad contracts per year. Posters have countered that falsehood and want you to know that it is possible to have no bad contracts ever, if you are careful. I guess letting you know that you were given bad information is against the rules now. This will make the forum such a helpful place, won't it?

I assumed "chit" was a bad word. Then saw he whole thread had been revamped. Guess from now on we are expected to be YES men/women.

** that. A "Chit" is a small thing. As in "a chit of a girl". Also chit or chitty can be a note...I've only seen the word used as in a requisition note, usually military. *Removed by admin*
