Someone is trying to get Kudoz points by looking for old non answered terms and giving no real answers, like “look in Google”. I have received 4 such answers lately from the same person to Italian > Spanish questions I sent to Proz.com in May. This obliges me to award undeserved Kudoz points, because someone has just “answered”. I gave him twice 1 point to avoid not closing my questions properly, and I have declined 2 questions today. Is this what I have to do? Is there a way to avoid receiving answers to questions that are 6 months old? I even do not remember which translation order they belong to!!!



Congratulations for Proz: it is the very best Internet tool for translators. Once you know this site, you cannot live without it!

How do they find these old questions? Nov 9, 2001

I don\'t know how to find questions that were posted two days ago, let alone six months!
