Yup, we writers know that. The same is true for all the categories on those bid-for-jobs sites. Web designers, programmers, graphic designers, you name it ... the going rates for all of them are rock bottom. That's why if you are looking for the best quality, you won't find it on those types of sites. Smart service providers don't compete on price, they compete on quality. I get far higher rates than I'd ever get on a bid-for-job site, because my customers know they can count on me for the highest quality work, not to mention work that's not stolen from somewhere else. Intellectual property theft is a continuing problem on bid-for-jobs sites.
