I think David has a point; however, it's too bad he chose the tone he
did. Also, it's too bad he jumped to conclusions re questionable
activities on Jean's part.

I'm sure that Jean, as well as most other contractors, carefully screens
the people she subcontracts to. I'm also sure that no work would go
back to the client without her review.

Personally, I'm listed as a subcontractor with another freelance writer.
As appropriate, she includes my resume with her original proposals.
