As someone who bills clients at those rates, I take umbrage to the “drooling shill” characterization. In fact, that is spot on. I bill at those rates, then I go away. I am there to do a job fast and efficiently. Yes, you can hire someone, pay them a salary and benefits and they may get the job done — but generally with more time required and not performed at the same level of quality.
soooooo….. I down-dinged you.
