Creepy, is what this company is. While I'm convinced of the real-world existence of the clients and freelancers, and, perhaps, even moderators, I get the impression that the actual company is as devoid of human input as a long-forgotten mausoleum.
I totally understand your frustration about this matter. We have taken the job down and are working to educate the client and prevent him from posting jobs with such wording and attitude in the future.
Oooh I lke the "working to educate the client" - sounds a bit like certain countries who have pointed unfriendly missiles towards the US. What do you actually do? (Go on, you can tell us . . .)
The best way to educate the client is to boot him off the site.
Well, that would mean people losing work, so as odious as this is, I think changing behaviour would be the better option. But yeah, if that proves impossible, then they should go.
'We can only hope "educate" means "lay down the law to," '
With a rubber truncheon - or a taser gun. Actually, just a garden hose would do. Wash the doo-doos off the front doorstep.
