  11. Crowdsourcing sites are the worst, 100 people do the work and only one gets paid, that might be OK for someone who designs for a hobby, but not for someone who is a professional. I have never used fiver but last time I looked there were some crazy things being asked for for $5. And I don’t mean crazy like odd, I mean like asking for several hours work and paying $5 for it. Seems like exploitation of poor countries or desperate people.
