Same old story again... (Grrrrrrr). There is a posted job by a Blue Board Agency dispalying the (LOW) rates they are offering for the job. I tought this practice was forbidden by the new rules at ProZ.

Well, there is a ProZ message saying that the rates offered are lower than those charged by 80% of ProZ members... and still there are 2 Quotes sent already.

What is the general rule? Can Agencies post a job and the rates ?

Except that there is a box where paying members can accept to be informed - but this is totally apart from the description of the job.

If this is in the description, just click on the place at the bottom which says "report this job" You don't have to write anything. It will be dealt with promptly (at least, it has been when I've done that.
