I think Eric is dead on. If you don't value their work, then you don't know value when you see it. You're likely paying for absolute shit, that opens doors for hackers and other problems.

Just because something works, does not mean it works well. Is it portable? Does it still work when you upgrade (vBulletin, php, mysql, etc.) Does it scale to hundreds of users? thousands? millions?

Consider this - programming literally takes years to get good at. Some people spend decades doing it. Programming is one of the rare professions where if you are good at it, you can do things much faster than those who aren't. Sometimes it's 2-3x faster, sometimes it's 20-30x faster. Sometimes it is 1000x faster.

You may pay someone $10/hr for a month, when it might take me 2 hours at my ridiculously high rate (not really). Would you pay my rate up front? Probably not. It probably will be cheaper though, not even taking into account maintenance, bugs, etc.

There is so much that you do not understand unless you are a programmer, or work with programmers often. You're going in blind.

I guess arrogance is bliss.

The better the programmer, the less problems.

(I heard of a programmer who released software with no bugs, though it's just a legend)

First, I've got socks older than you, so please refrain from calling me "son". Second, if I knew what it meant, I wouldn't have asked, now would I?

Because the person thinks they are being coy by slightly misspelling it.

And you'd be right.

That's kind of what I figured. Change the c to a g and you get this for the definition, which is definitely uncalled for:

A racial slur. Used to describe an African American child.

Mike, please stop, I knew exactly what it was and posted for other staff to make a decision on the matter, completely uncalled for and you need to restrain yourself from commenting further in any derogatory manner, slang does not excuse the use of the term in any situation as you seem to deem fit or justify, perception is key here and overall that is perceived in a negative fashion.

Polite does not mean wishy washy. I can be polite and very firm at the same time.
In fact I use politeness as a weapon when needed
