Clients Who Try To Cut Down The Price

One of the things I learned many years ago was that if a client balks at the price, they're a problem client. There are exceptions, of course, but some clients do this routinely - they're the ones I'm talking about. IMHO, those clients are almost never profitable. Read the rest of this entry »

How Can Yahoo!’s Spam Filter Be THIS Bad?

Please explain to me how it is that Yahoo! can't figure out that the following e-mail messages are spam... It boggles my mind...
