    odesk is turning into a bunch of assholes. I posted something about needing someone to make comments on blogs. I had done this many times before, no problems. but this time, within 5 minutes, I get an email saying that my posting has been canceled because this is considered spamming and odesk doesn't allow it. they also listed a bunch of other things that they dont allow, like posting fake reviews, etc.
    I am not sure how this makes sense to them from a business standpoint, you would think they are losing a lot of money because of this, but whatever.
    my question is, are other freelance sites (like elance, etc) also assholes? where is a good place to find contractors for this kind of jobs now?

    You could just phrase your post differently so that people know what it is about but you say it less obvious or post very few details and tell them to message you about the job
