Apparently, I have just been blocked from communicating with a ‘buyer’ and so I am likely on Fiverr’s radar as a potential spammer.
Needless to say, I do not send spam. In this specific case, a buyer with no ability to explain their business concept messaged me. I told them that I could not understand their brief and that as such I would not be able to help.
Then I get:
IF YOU CANNOT UNDERSTAND ENGLISH THEN YES, YOU CAN’T HELP ME. I JUST TOLD YOU WHAT I AM WANTING DONE AND YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND MY MESSAGE.YOU REALLY NEED TO STOP CLAIMING YOU CAN WRITE “INCREDIBLE” SEO ARTICLES. WHAT A JOKE!
This was followed by a nice message from Fiverr telling me that I can no longer communicate with this buyer (because they have blocked me).
However, the fun wasn’t over just yet. Similarly distressed by my declining to work with them, a buyer who messaged me yesterday with “Hi” has just vomited their newfound hatred of me all over my inbox by saying:
Why offer your sevices on Fiverr if you are not capable???
What? Really? What kind of parents did these people have? Wolves?
Thankfully, the first sign that a buyer is a secret psychopath is usually a friendly message saying “Hi” and nothing else. Either this or a an essay detailing the merits of their latest appalling business idea.
I just don’t get the sudden rage explosion, though. What do people like this do when they get told that X business is closed this afternoon for a staff training exercise? Torch the place and hunt down family members of senior management?
It truly is terrifying to know these people are out there living among us.
