LOL - definitely not. You're not the first person to think that, though - did you hear that on You Tube or something?


I still submit that you can learn a lot - which will result in revenue - from reading and learning here, and participating.

It obviously does no such thing. I really wonder where that idea comes from!

Mind you, if there WAS a secret club like that, then we wouldn't be able to talk about it, would we. Shhhhh.

Remember that time when spammers from the same country (we can't mention any names) were spamming copy/paste questions because some dummy on some group told them that posting here got them better jobs and better ranking? Mostly fake accounts too. lmao Those were good times.

Free entertainment? I love it. Find a 6-page post with a freelancer moaning about being suspended for 'no reason' get some snacks and that's a good part of my evening sorted.

On another freelancing site that I have used to use as a client, I based a hire on the way a newcommer had conducted themselves on the forum. They presented as keen and willing to both learn & help & he did an excelent job.

 

It's easy for someone to post a perfect resume & profile, but they'll often forget themselves in "free chat"

I once hired a freelancer who I'd seen in the forum. I might hire Petra if I ever need a sharply worded letter in German.
