I just wanted to ask, don’t you guys want to slap the person who sends you an e-mail and says:

” I don`t have money, but it’s a great opportunity for you and your portfolio. ”

I just got a mail like that :D :D :D I still don’t know how to tell him to go … :D

^ Add email on your description profile just for AD ,I don’t know why people keep using it :P
Any way; add an auto return mail state if its regarding AD file/freelance this is my rate xyz so please take this into account if you want my service ,so i cut many mambo jumbo talk this way .

1 more thing, if I get a request and in the mail he/she say: it will only take you 5 minutes it goes directly to my delete folder mark as spam :P

I added a description on my profile page about custom work, and how its much more expensive than stock files…

Seemed to help lower the spam a bit.

“Sorry but I do not work for free, thank you” is always a good and polite way to do it. You may also want to add an encrypted word somewhere on the email for example:

“DCGTHNMNF”

which may mean Damn Customer Go To Heck No Money No Files. It will help your anger management after receiving such an email :P
