Steve Read said he didn't understand my "hatred of agencies." I'm sorry my post
gave that impression. I had an initial impression of agencies that was not
good, but I want to investigate whether or not that's a valid impression.
That's why I posted the question. For example, I didn't know that most agencies
cut their margin after the first six months or so. I hope more knowledgeable
people (who have done contract work, like Steve) will contribute on this topic.
