“Postsckrippt is not who they claim to be. I paid for quality blog posts, and did not receive quality blog posts. I received the first draft a day after the final delivery date, and I had to point out numerous spelling, grammatical, and factual mistakes. After going back and forth for about a week after the due date, and receiving several drafts with barely any changes, I checked the metadata on the Word documents, and sure enough they were signed by somebody else. This "writer" appears to be outsourcing to cheap, non-English-speaking locations. This was evident based on the awkward phrasing and weird word choices in the articles.
There were definitely objective errors (such as spelling mistakes, capitalization errors, etc.), but there are a lot of subjective problems as well. The text simply does not flow well. There are a lot of filler words, run-on sentences, and clunky phrases.As a result, much of the content will have to be re-written before it can be published.
After pointing out the numerous problems in the delivered material, Postsckrippt demanded that I proof-read the articles and highlight the problems for editing, or he would file a dispute with me because it was "too much". Even though I'm a customer, not an editor, I showed him exactly what the problems with the articles were, and he promptly returned another draft with zero changes.
This project has gone over-budget, because it will now require man hours to edit and fact check the articles, because in their current state, they're definitely not fit to be published.
In short, I do not recommend this E-Lancer at all. They were late, delivered very low-quality work, appear to use outsourced writers, tried to coerce me with a dispute threat, and didn't seem interested in the slightest in doing the job they were paid to do. Stay away from Postsckrippt.”
“The rating this client has given is a clear sign of his troubled personality. As far as I am concerned, the issue was very minimal, like the placing of comma, hyphen, using of State vs. state, etc. But his reaction to the issue was so magnified that I had to tell him, “It’s too much!”
In fact, the moment I started exchanging messages to this buyer I knew immediately I was dealing with an unusual client. His language was unprofessional and I can’t remember him saying, “Please” to all his requests. I had this feeling of me being his servant.
He kept on pointing out issues, which he says not in line with the internal workings of his business -- issues that I know nothing about since I am not his employee. It would have been great of him as a business owner and leader to educate me. He did nothing but point here and there. Then he accused me of outsourcing the work when I had someone looked into the content because he was not satisfied.
Until finally I had to cry afoul and warn him that I’ll bring up the issue to Elance to stop his bullying. I realized he may be looking for content at par with New York Times so I read a few of his blog posts and I noticed that his old content is infected with errors. Obviously he is preaching something he is not doing, which is plain hypocrisy.”
