Make bids public when it is obvious that the price is too low

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.
