I disagree. I believe it's a basic human right to say whatever you want. It's also a basic human right to take offence at anything said to or about you, but that's your choice. Stopping people from speaking their minds is an early step on a steep downward hill. Oh, and I fart in your general direction, etc, etc ;-) Anyway, back to the point. You asked a question about dealing with a remote developer. Regardless of whether you employ that person full time, on a contract basis or ad hoc you are their client so Tedd's comments formed a valid response to the question. All too often people take the words of other people and apply their own definitions and decide it doesn't apply. In my view this list and the people on it are my clients, as is the board at my day job, as is my better half, etc. A client to me (and a fair percentage of the people I know) is "anyone you do stuff regardless of remuneration", and very similar procedures apply to all different types of clients for the purposes of specifying requirements and estimating effort. Now that's done, it's Mothers Day here in jolly old England, and I have a phonecall to make! -Stuart -- http://stut.net/ -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
