  3. How bizarre, you can't rate posts of banned members

    At least so it would seem. So someone can post something seriously awful and get banned for a while, and nobody can vote on the post.

  6. When the agent starts by asking 'What's your rate?'...

    I usually ask back, 'What's the role and where is it based?' Is that not a reasonable query? If I can commute then I am happy to charge a little less. Also I can perform a variety of roles from solutions architect to data architect to MDM specialist. Surely the rate would depend on what the role...
