A mail from an agency: "Thank you for your message. ... The project is about 2000 words..... We only pay with USD, we will you (sic!) agree with 30 USD an hour for review?"

I was tempted to answer like:"Looks fine to me. I assume you will find a charge of five hours at the suggested price acceptable for the proposed job." But I decided not to push and just presented my point of view aka my prices. No more mail from them.

Regards

Vito
