Don't continue with people like this, it's unprofessional. Just block him and move on.

That is obvious to anyone, I am not posting the convo to ask for advice, I am posting it because I find it hilarious.

Hey
What do you mean how it is in Israel? I freelance abroad, mostly on Elance or Freelancer.com

Hey guys also forgot this juicy update, after I had blocked him on Skype he was constantly PMing me on a freelancer site and sending me emails begging me to sell him the product:

Is your poker app on for 36 hours?

We just need to test it and I will have an advance payment ready for you...to finish it accordingly.

Programming Bids <censored@yahoo.com>
12/27/12 to me
Please man, its very serious this time, no joke, no time wasting.

Please let me know when you open the server/ports and game is ready for testing.


Its a request!


Programming Bids <censored@yahoo.com>
12/28/12 to me
Will not do it?

Just say me....
This is the kind of people I deal with daily

I can also post the freelancer messages but I think it gets the point across, you really shouldn't let Shawarma chefs employ programmers...

I don't know how it started, but it really feels like a cat fight there.

Nah it's just that some kind of people seem to think that a couple thousands of dollars is some unbelievably HUGE amount of money it's SO HUGE that you can spit in your programmers faces if you pay them these amounts.

I don't engage in catfights neither, these kind of people have absolutely no respect either for themselves or for others...

You should mail him a box of poker cards. :P

I had to deal with something like this TWICE, and it's awful.

As everyone said, leave them, they're stupid and carry on with your stuff.
