discuss or set?

Big difference.

I'll discuss my rates whenever I want. I'll tell what
I'm being paid if the information is appropriate to an
appropriate question. It may not be "classy", but
nobody ever acused me of that.

I won't say "OK, you and I are competing for a
contract at XY Company. We are the only two
contractors that they want to hire. I promise I won't
charge less than $X if your don't." I think that is
colusion, besides being just plain wrong.
