So, I’m getting really sick of other sellers contacting me in order to ask me to consider using them to help me get through my writing workload, either that or to consider them for voice over work. Besides, isn’t this spam?
Either way, I’m sick of it. It wastes my time and if you message me over night, you are subsequently to blame for my response rate dropping. More importantly though, if I do need any service on Fiverr, I go out, look for what best suits me and order. In fact, I will never order from these people messaging me because to me it’s just begging.
The above being the case, I therefore replied to one such message this morning by saying:
"Just so you know, this doesn’t work.
I never choose to work with people who beg like this primarily because you waste my time with having to respond to these messages."
I then reported the sender but somehow got this in reply:
“I’m not begging you ignorant fool. Thanks for showing your intelligence here. I don’t work with morons. Goodbye! :)”
Now, was I just a bit too blunt here? Or am I right trusting my gut and NEVER working with untalented little plebs like this? Either way, I’m never going to. But how is this kind of solicitation even legal in the first place?
