|All I did was suggest to someone whose post is very obviously written in ESL-English that if he decides to enter this industry, he not offer his services to any native English-speaking customers without disclosing that he is ESL. Not sure what about that suggests excessive "pride" on my part. My name appeared on plenty of work in the U.S. published by the federal agency that I worked for and they seemed to think I was a writer because the sign they had on my office door read "Writer/Editor" and that's what all my agency credentials and earnings statements said.
FW, you're such an ass. you're proud of yourself and consider yourself a "good writer" because you do kids' homework for them...you know what good writers do? they publish things that have their name in the byline, or on the cover...you know what jughead hack wannabes who can't put together a decent, interesting sentence do? they do kids' homework for them, and pretend they're God's entitled gift on anonymous message boards.
If you're so worried about a "shadow-industry for scumbags" you should be happy and not angry that I've simply encouraged someone to be 100% honest with his prospective customers about his English skills before taking their money.
anubhav will do just fine in this shadow-industry for scumbags, unfortunately... just like you do. hopefully, s/he won't be as deluded.
