Someone seems to have posted a question from English into practically every other language you can think of concerning 'NipCha'. It is not a real question. Someone's research, it would seem. Shouldn't that someone be pointed in the right direction?
Thanks
Chris

It should be removed from all languages. The agency is trying to get this name evaluation done without paying for the job. I removed the posting from the English to Portuguese KudoZ forum.

They mentioned in some of the postings they can't pay for this job. Why not? I don't accept this excuse.

All these agencies trying to get jobs for free should perhaps belong to a separate section -- along with those offering 0.0001 a word.

the poster is aware... Nov 26, 2003

and apologized. I suggested he'd use the job section, specifying they couldn't pay for it. Maybe it was a genuine mistake, but it's difficult to know in these circumstances.
BTW... I got the four points for my answer!icon_wink.gif
