Thanks Nikki Dec 5, 2001

for taking the time to explain this to everybody. There has been a flurry of anonymous postings also in the SCs in which I am interested.

Thanks Nikki - very useful! Dec 7, 2001

Would this also help when people create bogus duplicate identities? I am told this has happened, ostensibly to prove that it is possible to post queries that you answer yourself but perhaps actually TO post such queries. Some people seem to have no other aim in life than to accumulate Kudoz - I name no names

There is end to what one can do Dec 9, 2001

It apparently looks like one can do anything. Here is a list of things one can possibly do :

1. Post a number of fictitious jobs in different languages( before that post profiles of several agencies on the site and give some coordinates) and this way from January onwards you could possibly lose dollars after dollars.

2. My friends could post a number of fictious jobs and then award it to me and say that I have completed them succesfully and dot on time. This will then appear on my profile as jobs completed.

3. Increase your Kudoz points by asking your friends to post questions.

And the list is endless apart from the usual things like getting free translations done( via sample route) , not paying for translations, create intense competition in order to lower translation rates.
