Dear all,
Sorry if i have stirred up a bit of a hornets nest here. The intention was 
not to fix prices, or undercut the competition. Merely to help newbies like 
myself from being ripped off by giving someone an incredibly low quote. We 
all have started out by making free sites and very cheap sites to begin 
with, but there comes a time when you need to make enough money to support 
yourself. I think there are too many of us worldwide to set up price fixing. 
There will aways be competion to enable consumers to find differing quotes. 
What does make it hard for us is when a client sees your quote and goes 
What? because a friend of a friend did a site for a miniscule amount, 
because they didn't know the real market value. For those of us around the 
globe and based in places such as Bangkok like myself, we aren't really 
competition for the likes of you in the US and the UK, it's just when the 
occassional gig does come your way it would be nice to make some serious 
money for a change. Sorry to discuss money but i do have a living to make.
