    doing business with women

    http://forums.gaywidewebmasters.com/...&threadid=1013
    this guy jhussher actually says to me on the second page of this thread "i hate doing business with women"

    i'm shocked, actually. i know what i want - to buy gallery spots or ppc hits. when i didn't want what he offered - to wander his site and make a suggestion (this is not something that i have interest in doing) he blames it on my being a woman.

    i wanted to let everyone here know who they may be doing business with. to me, trying to demean someone by pigeonholing them into a group is not what this board is about.

    am i wrong?

    Hey you
    I understand you would be upset. Unfortunately, i can't say too much because i myself don't like to work with a certain group of people but i have good reasons for that. As far as your case goes, you're entitled to make decisions on what you want or not. I worked with you, so i can say it was a pleasure to work with a woman.
    :goof:

    BassChick, yep very drowning but that's good So much better than 1 year ago.
    I understand money is money but sometimes it's not worth getting money from someone because you know that at the end, you'll surely lose more.

    i used to do small websites for non web people - omifuckinggod! they were THE worst! they changed their minds a thousand times, over and over, and it's not like they had a clue what surfers wanted to see or what made money.

    i finally started charging them $5 - $25 for each change after the first five changes. it was in our agreement i made them sign before i started work. one guy was so awful i just kept his site and sent him back all his money.

    i have to admit, it got so annoying i pulled my ads out of the local papers and stopped working for them entirely.

    what a nightmare *shudder*

    Haha..

    Thats the difference between doing paysite designs and other types of designs.. when it comes to paysites we only use designers who know what works

    No you are not wrong... And you should be upset and so should everyone on this board... that is no better then saying "I hate doing business with gays" or whatever.. He will loose in the end because I am not only a woman I am one with a big mouth who has no problem telling all the peeps I know not to do business with him and he also should apologize to you.... my two women cents....

    Direct Holly - thanks. i feel a little better after reading you.

    i was actually pretty surprised that no one else here has seen it this way. if he'd said he didn't like doing business with gay men or black people, i feel they'd be all over it. so i felt pretty sad that you can say that about women here, and no male person has a problem with it :-(

    i'd have had a problem with it if someone said something like that to one of them...
