I have a suggestion:

I think questions that are specificly addressed to ProZ.com -members should be totally hidden from the view of non-members.It is frustrating to see a question I could answer when the only reason I cannot answer it is not being a proz,that is paying member.

Please hide them from our view.If we,non-members cannot see them,we are not made nervous by them.Right now,we are actually.

But you can Sep 15, 2008

I answer questions that are for "members" all the time, and as you can see I am not a member. Now and then my answer is even chosen.

So you should be able to do so also unless there is some other restriction such as having a certain number of points or whatever; that I do not know.

I can too Sep 16, 2008

And I am not a member either... I have seen such restrictions sometimes, and was a bit upset as I wondered why a member would want to discourage answers from non members ? If you have the clue, tell me.
To me, it is one of these useless distinctions, just as "Pro" and "Non-Pro".

Sometimes I could post an answer to those, sometimes the relevant fields are invisible. Who knows. I'm not a member.

If it is really so,if it depends on the systems mood,than it is really strange what you say.
