Can agencies grade themselves on the Blue Board? I don\'t think so.

See for example:

Three cheers... Feb 5, 2003

...for chutzpah!

Thanks for pointing that out - you made my day.

Seriously, though, I do agree that such a practice is far from ethical.

Well done, Laura and Evert! Feb 5, 2003

And thanks to everybody else.

Agencies have tried to squeeze all the profits from translators, and some agencies do such immoral things as the one expressed by Laura. If they do that with blue board reviews, what do you think they will do to our checks?

Henry: I propose the moderators (or some other group) take a good close look at the Blue Board ratings, including the posters\' IP addresses, and not only shut that agency out of ProZ, but \"flag\" it, so that no new postings from that agency can be entered into Proz, or if it can enter, it gets a NICE warning sign, telling us about their previous actions against the truth.

And enjoy your work, as I do mine!
