    That's fine -- we are all overworked on pretty much every desk everywhere. But I rejoiced when my paper cut back on usage of TSX.

    These would all seem to add up to so many red flags about this gig, you'd think you were in the Kremlin.

    From their end, you're dealing with a bunch of freelancers. I know some guys who are great at what they do but they approach their freelance work with considerable non-chalance. And I know others who approach it the same way they do their daily work. So the copy will be all over the map. If there is too much to edit or not enough time to edit properly, well, we all know what the result will be.

    I have received more PMs on this subject than about any other, which is saying something. Like the copy, it's all over the map. People who have shared my experiences with them, people who have had good experiences *** go in with your eyes open and ask a lot of questions. It could be a good gig.

    Or not.

    I'll stand on the "good company to work for" side. I just started freelancing for them last fall. Derek is great to deal with and never had a problem receiving a check.

    Curious about the status of this one if anyone knows. Understood they had it down to a couple of people and possibly splitting responsibilities between the two.
