In my opinion,we should have the possibility of making bids public (and available to be seen by others) in the case of possible exploitation. There has just been a job posted with various language pairs, one of whch was Spanish to English, by a Russian agency offering the barbaric total of $0.02 per word. In this case, I think we should be able to take a stand and make our bid public so that others don\'t think that we are bidding for this job, but merely making a point to the posters that this is out of order.

I\'d be interested in hearing what other people think.

I would hope that people who post jobs at ridiculously low rates would simply be ignored. Don\'t waste your breath, when they get no response, they may go higher next time.
