I do a bunch of contract web-development and received this lead in my inbox this morning: 

Dear ***********,

I'm searching for a .NET developer to make some minor adjustments to an existing .NET built site: *********.com   On a very tight budget so looking for a cheap hourly rate.  Was going to turn to Filipinos but want to touch with you to see you rates.  Please advise.  I've been told the code is genious so there will be some benefit to working on it.

Thanks for your time.

 

*******

Would anyone honestly think that this is a selling point? It's like it's a privilege to work on his code or something...
