Six day security period

I find this totally reprehensible. No debit card needs 6 days to clear. What is oDesk's justification for such a long security period, 2 days should be enough.

They use it as a security period not only to review payments made to ensure they are legit from the issuers, but also to give clients the chance to raise a ticket in the event of problems with a contract. Also, the system has been like this since oDesk started, I doubt it will change. I am also pretty sure they collect addtional fees on interest so...meh.
