This is different because it relates to how you treat and talk about other providers and what kind of client you really are. It's not personal, unrelated info like the other stuff you're talking about (member of drummers world, liking lasagne, being married). Nice try though.No, you are actually completely wrong. They are sleeping with you based on the money they are paid, not whether I am a member of this board so no coercion but nice try. It is none of their business what I do outside of our arrangement. Am I lying, yes? Am I being dishonest, no because it is none of their business. I am no more under an obligation to share I am a member of this forum than I am to share the fact that I am a member of Drummers World, Guitar Tech, or the fact I like lasagna.
I notice people on this forum have very different views about what a relationship may or may not be with a service provider.
Exactly why should a member let a service provider know they are a member here? Or have a Twitter account, are married, have three kids, etc...
Nope, not on the same page at all on this one. However, I do respect the opinion of others.
Also I turn down a lot of people who would pay me who are assholes. I only see clients I'm excited to see. That's a privilege and I acknowledge that, but I'm not just going to sleep with any asshole who pays me.
Edit: came back to mention how hilarious it is to say that you can lie while not being dishonest. They’re literally...the same thing...????
