It was a general one, although they may have filtered of course. Clearly I'm not the only one to be graced with this offer!

PS@Rebecca Davis Oct 13

It was addressed to a "selected" list of lucky Proz recipients, a "Proz.list".

General ProZ messages/lists Oct 14

Haven't even opened one of these in years, as they always "offer" the same laughable rates and conditions. Don't see why you would be "up in arms" about it though: it's not personal, just some dodgy agency trying its luck, which I assume it pays ProZ to do.

Ignore it Oct 14

Yes, this is what I would indeed recommend for the most part. But I couldn't ignore the "eloquence" of this particular one.

...I wish there would be "(ROF)LOL" button here as well as some confused/cryingoutloud emoticons on the jobs pages (which would be unprofessional, don’t worry! I know!). Anyway, on the bright side, once in a while, it seems that a client knows about "sausage manufacturing" : https://www.proz.com/translation-jobs/1502650
That would deserve a congrats button!
