Andrew, I think you're misunderstanding me, the recruiter is digging in
to my rate, not taking a cut ABOVE my rate. And yes, I believe I am
worth X and I should get paid X. If a recruiter doesn't want to pay X
then I won't work with said recruiter. It's as simple as that. I don't
believe I should be making X + Y, JUST X.

Isn't that the same issue that the person in Boston brought up? She
wanted X but a recruitment firm told her she was out of line? Her rate
was her rate, she just wanted X, not X + Y.

When is voicing an opinion, whether or not it's calling someone greedy
(based on past experiences with said person) suddenly libelous?
