Insulting Things Said to You Because You Work Online
Jonathon Volk made a post about this a little while ago but I'd be interested to here your responses to this question - what are some insulting things people have said to you because you work online?
The usual one that I get is that it isn't a real business, you can't earn real money on the internet or its just a scam.
These days I seem to get a lot of people contacting me who I don't even know, asking for free help with coding. I'm all for helping but I have to live and pay my bills as well. Working for free doesn't get me there. Its actually made me highly consider if I continue using MSN (other IM's don't seem to have this problem/I don't have idiots on my lists).
What are some of your stories?
