    Well quick story. I needed a content writer and i searched in BST section, but the result was disastrous.

    First thread was Natasha's, she doesn't answer her PM's and on skype she's not online (the skype ID taken from her BST).

    Second was ScrapeBoss's thread and guess what, same shit. There is no way you can contact him on skype.

    Third was Steelballs which can't make the difference between "f*ck" and "f*ck you" plus 1000 words web content, TAT in about 7 days!!!

    Seems services around BHW are in bad shape lately. Sad...

    Just went to the marketplace...clicked "search forum" entered "content" and theres plenty of choices.

    Natasha always turns around articles quick for me try using the email address on her bst rather than pm.

    Are they your slaves that they must instantly be available on Skype 24/7? Hire a VA you cheapskate.
    Natasha delivers insanely fast and HQ content, I placed an order for 170 articles and half of those were delivered in three days already. The price is a bargain as well, all my PMs and e-mails get answered in way less than 24H.

    You just seem to be an extremely impatient..Well.. FOOL.

    If you're still certain that BHW is shit, go check out odesk, iwriter and other freelancer sites..

    NewKid has always been awesome. I highly recommend him.

    I WOULDN'T recommend blackpayman's. His delivery is fast, but the quality is beyond terrible. Keywords all messed up and words with different meanings were used. I left a negative review but he just kept bumping his salesthread with his pricing post to cover it up.

    Then there's BrianKade. In the past, his delivery was damn fast and his articles were superbly well written. I kept giving him projects and it was all done in time and superbly well written. But unfortunately, the latest order I had with him was a little bit of a nightmare. Perhaps it is just bad luck. You can try him too!

    So you make the first contact ever with me and when you don't like my delivery time - you lead off with the F word then you open a thread to diss me!

    Then you savage other folks in the BST...

    Seems like you are doing very well in business treating people like this...

    You expect everyone to jump to attention, I am sure everyone will now be falling over to work with you...:eek:

    Some clients are better off not being clients at all. Just more mouth than anything.

    I have a TON of respect for people who run BST threads. I wouldn't have the patience these guys have with buyers, if I opened up a thread.

    Yeah a sales thread is an offer to conduct business. Both parties would need to see a benefit to the transaction. Seasoned sellers will get a "read" on the buyer pretty quickly and oftentimes offer slow responses, no responses, high TATs or raise the price when they don't see a good fit rather than tell the buyer they're not interested in doing business.

    We do this at our B&M store when an aggressive (pushy) customer comes in with a list of demands and unrealistic TATs. Rather than tell them to GTFO we tell them how backed up we are, shoot them high prices or TATs, etc. It's just easier to fire the aggressive client tactfully rather than piss them off by telling them we're not interested in their business.

    For a $10 transaction I surely wouldn't be pushed around. Hell, I don't get pushed around for $1000 transactions. We do business on my terms or we don't do business.

    I'm not sure the OP was just being politely fired by all he contacted.

    I can't speak about other BST Content Writers but I think your off base with Natasha .. She has always responded to my emails or PM's within 24 hours

    and more often than not I have my articles in 48 hours ... So I certainly would suggest being a little calmer about it .. Than to fly off the handle.

    I certainly know that waiting for time sensitive things can really suck .. so regardless hope you can get what you need .. Cheers.

    Nothing he said about you sounded crazy to me.... 7 days, sounds like a reasonable time frame.

    It's like my old welding teacher used to say

    "You want it done fast, or you want it done right? You can have both... but it costs quadruple!"

    When I see threads like this..... I mean, we've all been in that situation.

    I just installed my toilet because I didn't feel like shopping for a plumber. I also know any plumber in town would charge 200 bucks, and this job is easy.

    SO I DID IT MYSELF.

    That's not to say a plumber wouldn't have done a great job. But I didn't feel like 200 dollars, or even 20 dollars was worth it considering it would take me 10 minutes. The point is, I didn't go trash talking every plumber in town. I got that shit taken care of.

    I think it would have been better if you wrote your post but not name drop, because then you start to make it personal with each of the seller's you mentioned. So the backlash should not be a surprise to you.
