Much as I understand why ProZ.com has given job-posters the option to restrict bids to Platinum members, this cannot really be in its own interest as long as the posting is accessible without restrictions on other sites:

Outsourcer's decision Jan 12, 2004

Hi Russell,
This option was also introduced at the request of various outsourcers (although I wouldn't want to dispute the fact that ProZ.com has a certain interest here, too).

Thing is, it's impossible to prevent the outsourcer from posting the same job on several sites - that's what happened here. However, you might question the wisdom of restricting the job on ProZ.com and openly posting it somewhere else... If you note a similar occurrence, please contact a Jobs Area coordinator, and we'll touch base with the poster(s).

Best regards, Ralf

Educating outsourcers Jan 13, 2004

Hi All

In the meantime, would it not be possible for Proz to educate its outsourcers? I mean, by making sure they understand that a Platinum member is somebody who has paid for the privilege as opposed to a "better" professional.

However, after just having been platinum for 6 months and seeing that it made no difference; I am not sure this really matters. Well, only to discriminate within the sheer volume of replies a job might get.
