As mention, why was thread looking for ppl interested in photography to shoot a job for low rates or no pay allowed?
A forum encouraging photography should make it clear in it's own that exploiting was not encouarged at all. It shd not be even allowed at all, appearing at service sections.
Like models looking to exploit hobbyist, they cannot even pose and have yet to handle enough jobs to charge, yet they are allowed to start a thread wanting ppl to pay.
All this is rubbish, a local photography forum shd not have such thread allowed in the first place. Rubbish will lead to more rubbish, in the end forums becomes a rubbish place...
If $8 per hr was not call exploit, then this forums was kinda sick already.
