Judging by the reply to address, I would say that it could be another contractor trying to cash in on people starving.:sad:

I responded to the ad and told the guy what a moron he is. And greedy and a thief. These people disgust me!!! Yes, I am likely out of line but maybe it will put a little guilt on him. He's a painter trying to get the job done for almost nothing and collect his fat check. You can bet on it.
Company I'm working for paid $25 per sheet. Don't know is that fair or not. I don't do it unless being force to because I hate getting dust in my eyes.

You guys are just complaining because you don't know how to telecommute. Yeah, I'll take that telecommuting job. I hang drywall over the phone all the time. ;)
I wouldn't even carry a board into a house for $3.50 a board

Unless it was a 2x4 to whack Weiner face wes across his greedy fat chops. I might even do that for free. :w00t:
I see ads like that and more all the time on cl down in florida. it disgusts me. I am a professional in my very specific trades and get angry when I am outbid in my field by a painter who is starving.
