Then, everyone else had to chime in with how they were the bestest, most researched writer on the interwebs and things went downhill from there. 

 

When really, we all could have just said to OP "it's an upwork glitch."


 No...

 

...that would have been tooooo easy.

But to be entirely fair, this post wouldn't have been much fun if it was about nothing but tech specs. I commented on a strict tech specs post earlier and not one person called me the c-word or questioned my business practices while condescendingly acting like they were smarter than me once. It was pretty boring. 

 

I'm going to say it. I come to the forums for the drama.  Smiley Wink

 No, it also adds it to very long job posts if they were posted from a "mobile device" which, incidentally, may be a top of the range iPad Pro for all we know.

 

Not everything posted from a mobile device was hastily typed out on a mobile phone by some hick while driving a truck....

 

And to round it off: It is no “technical glitch” either.

 Yes, I've seen some very well-written job descriptions from mobile devices.

 

But I don't respond to one-sentence job descriptions whether they're from mobiles or not. It's not so much that I want thoughtful clients, though that's a factor too. It's because all my successful proposals have been closely tailored to the client's specific needs, and I can't do that if the client doesn't give me any details. Obviously, this isn't going to apply equally to all types of work. I'm a software developer, not a writer.

I guess you know your hicks pretty well.
