Has anyone ever used Freelancer.com in any capacity?

Do you have any reviews or thoughts on this platform?

What about PeoplePerHour?

My sister needs some freelance graphics work and I'm trying to find reputable places she can go to get it.


I have tried Freelancer on numerous occasions. The platform is riddled with bugs. Not a fan of that site and quit trying to use it.

PeoplePerHour - haven't heard of it.

As for the freelance graphics work - I know somebody local to me. I like what they have done for me so far.

Yeah, I phrased that last sentence poorly. My sister is a Graphics Designer looking to pick up freelance jobs is what I should have said.

Based on my experience, I would stay away from freelancer.

So this morning I've been frantically searching the internet on articles to help clarify a problem I'm experiencing, and what do I see?

Gail Shaw's name all over the place.

Hrm. In case I haven't said this enough: thank you, Gail. Your clear, concise and thoughtful answers from the past several years (some old articles here) just saved me a lot of heartache.

Thank you.

I need some advice, please.

One of my thread questions has a poster on it who spent all day yesterday on Twitter telling me my problem is impossible (literally, he said that). He refuses to believe I have a problem because he can't reproduce it and I can't exactly let him see my systems.

So he found the thread I posted here and has been contributing, or trying to contribute, without actually helping. I managed to ignore his first post, but his second post made an absolute judgement on something that he can't possible know is 100% true for everyone. So I posted a brief rebuttal and now he's responded.

The problem is if I read his response, I might do an angry rant kind of post and turn into one of Those OPs, which I'm trying not to do. On the other hand, if I ignore a thread I started, I might never see the other responses which might actually be helpful.

How should I handle this? I don't want a guy who doesn't even believe I have an issue trying to "help me" resolve it by telling me I don't have an issue.
