or wanting something for FREE ?

Volunteering is over as of high school years for me. I talked to an applicant who was at the testing center once about why applying here. "I got tired of people wanting stuff for free" he replied. He's an AC repair man in Arizona.

I guess it is true...

I mean, it's called volunteer work, which I've personally done.



But yeah, this is pretty sketch.

The buyer didn't even start off with an NDA, so I am not sure they have a leg to stand on anyway.

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! No I don't work for free. You want me to work for you then you pay me. I will do simple things for friends but you want me to do anything really complex or not converting you to linux then you pay me money!

HELL NO. As is, I'm close to quitting over unpaid overtime, a rat bastard, and impossible deadlines. This forum topic is far too real, for me.

Frankly, yes. Honestly, I'd almost rather work on the stuff I don't get paid for. The stuff I get paid for takes way too much of my time.

Not a lawyer, but you probably have nothing to worry about since you don't appear to name the client or what they want done in the tweet. also never let someone "hire you for exposure" regardless of your experience level in any job. if you wanted to be "paid in exposure/experience" YOU would be the one searching and that is called an internship. those usually end with you getting a job at that company or at least some sort of connection at a place that is taking on people.(the last part of this is more for the younger people trying to get into an art/tech job)

Well said.

The whole "it'll give you exposure" is just bullshit to try to trick into providing him valuable work for free. The fact that he quickly insulted you when you refused is, to me, further proof of that.

There are a lot of people out there who try to not pay for the services they receive from your expertise and they'll try using a whole bunch of excuses to try to deceive you: going from the exposure bullshit that that moron tried to feed you to the "can you send us a prototype of what we want so that we can evaluate you abilities".

I say to hell will all those vermin, I someone wants me to work for them, they have to pay me.

Yes, I do volunteer work on occasion. No, I won't do professional work for some schmuck looking for fee labor in their own business.
