    Out of interest, would any of you shit-list a timewaster?

    I gave someone a couple of chances on a job and they have let me down twice, this means I am about a week behind on a project!

    Ok I haven't paid them as they said pay on completion but to me time costs just the same as money

    Your opinions on this one!

    I think I'm pretty pissed off as I gave them a second chance

    If they have been communicating with you then no. If you have not heard from them then I would vote a yes.

    You haven't paid him for any work so I don't think you have any right to shitlist the person.

    Cut your losses and find someone else who will deliver.

    I think shitlisting is a little extreme. Perhaps you could ask for discount since he's messed you around, and if he refuses, then you could consider ruining his reputation.

    Unless they pre warned you about the time frame, or have given a reasonable justification since you gave them the second chance then I think I would to be honest, but I'm in a really foul mood today :)

    The annoying thing is that I see them taking on other work -

    And the fact that I gave them a second chance

    I think shitlisting the Dude for wasting time is extreme but you can post your communication with him and mention they
    flaked repeatedly on their thread.

    I would second that - provided he started the thread or answered your request publicly. People like that piss me off as well.

    shitlisting would be too extreme
    I would rather waste his time by assuring him big project with high pay scale :)

    project got delayed will start next week
    next week which project? oh ya i totally forgot thanks for reminding me will start within a day or two

    thats the best way as per me
    it might waste your little time
    but it gives mental satisfaction :)

    I am sure its his loss but he wont understand unless he realises what he lost

    i think most people here know the 'lost profits/lost business' definition, even if you didn't pay anything upfront, the service provider made you damage and he did this twice

    people have the right to know about unreliable people as well, not just about scammers

    however i can agree with the others when they say, this case may not shitlist-worthy (you can give negative feedback in the sales thread if there's any), but the final decision is yours of course
