Ironic that the title is \"Depression after delivery\".

Do they mean delivery of the translation when you see how much you get paid?

This is a "money matters" posting Jul 18, 2002

Please do not post issues related to money in forums otehr than \"money matter.\" Also, please do not use misleading or overly general headings (I changed it from \"congratulations colleagues in the USA\" to \"low-paid job has few bids\")

HAHAHA!!! Jul 19, 2002

I\'m cracking up because the reason they got so few bids is that anyone who has posted higher rates than what they\'re offering in their profiles is not allowed to bid. I sent them a \"friendly\" (COUGH, COUGH) email from my regular email address...



Way to go guys!
