I have been seeing this more in the past few weeks.
So I get a $5 order, all fine and well, then I look at the requirements. Hi can you please do it in gold with a with a black background and do a rose that comes in at the side of the screen and make it with (insert copyrighted song here). Oh and if you could get it to me before (time several days before delivery) since it is pretty simple. I made that up but I often get requirements like this. Arrg do you have any clue how long it takes to do that? I don’t just have a program that I type “Gold, rose enters from side, sync to X song” and have a file spit out 5 seconds later. No… I have to create the background, animate the text and other elements, and sync it on these types of intros. At least 20 minutes of work. $5 gets you about 10 minutes of my time. I will do a bunch of basic customizations, but not do something from scratch unless you pay me for it. That doesn’t even include machine time (few hours)
Sorry about the rant, just wanted to blow off a little steam.
