Infraction happy mods

    Ok, I am sure someone will go nazi and ban me or flood me with infractions, but you guys are just a bit infraction happy. I called a scam artist a retard and I got 2 infractions. Where is the logic? The guy was talking about 25 cents per hour labor and that a 4 hours job would take 40 hours. I call that a scam.

    Perhaps this is why newbies fall for their traps, because we get busted for talking down the scam artists. Not cool at all. Next time I will just shut up and let people get swindled.

    Let me tell the future. You support these guys and all of us quality coders go bye bye and the only coders left are the 25 cent to 1 dollar per hour coders. That will happen if you support them.

    1. The legit coders cannot compete against that.
    2. No legit coder charges that little. That equals out to $10 a week. Not even in India is that sufficient to survive. Especially with the american dollar being worth less than toilet paper right now.

    Hey, In this thread I did not like 2 Things.

    1) No legit coder charges that little. That equals out to $10 a week. Not even in India is that sufficient to survive. Especially with the american dollar being worth less than toilet paper right now.
    2) This should be in Suggestions and Feedback instead of underground.

    Thanks..

    Nah, probably best it's kept here. If it was in S&F they'd probably read it and dispense more infractions.

    IMO, anyone that refers to another normal human being as a nazi, or even compares them to a nazi, deserves an infraction. the hero dies in this one;)

    He meant the cost of living is lower than in USA/UK/a large part of europe etc and so becase of that hes saying that at the prices the coders are quoting it would be hard for people from India to keep a house over their head and food in their stomachs at the prices let alone people who live in countries where the cost of living is much higher.

    Actually, he gave me a rep and said it was a joke later. And unless you live in the woods, $25 an hour is not going to be sufficient. Especially since 25 cents in USD is worth about 13 cents on average elsewhere right now.

    What I meant by that is that in India money goes a lot farther. How evil of me.

    Witchhunt over?

    that goes in all business operation, also in hosting where scammers drop by with incredible deals and people buy only from them.

    But what I found out is that customers do come back to the quality providers at the end. We cant stop scammers not do anything but all we can do is educate and give buyers knowledge about what could happen.

    If they dont listen, their fault but they will always return for quality.

    Time will tell
