A job posting appeared this morning for a translation from English into German, 40 pages at 300 words each page (total 12000 words) offering a flat rate of $160.

The same poster asks generally for a rate of $0.04 for translations from different source languages into Russian...the positng is not in one of his/her language pairs anyway.

What\'s the world coming to? The worst thing - there\'s one bidder so far...

just because there is a bid, does not mean that the bid is in the posters range. No one can bid below their personal minimums...
