It's not a spambot, it is a person who has been posting to earn money, a program

on ForuMatrix where posters could earn money by posting, however, this person has taken the program out of context and not only will not be compensated, but the posts will be removed.  Our apologies for any inconvenience.

    Does anyone else earn extra money.....
    I transcribe 200+ pages per month at $5.00 a page for a local hospital and write resumes as well. The resumes pay better and have over 7000 in my repertoire, however, my first love is MT.
    Can still do that and not help the Indians earn our money.
    Does anyone else earn extra money at home doing something along with MT work?
    I need some ideas.  Fall is coming and I will have some extra time and getting burned out on MT.
    Yes because i will be spending money i don't have and won't earn anything with work decreasing
    My mistake, I am not thinking tonight, I actually make 11.5 cpl, clinic notes. I earn my money thou
    I like my QA person, but I also know she's not posting
    here.  She's very professional at her job and doesn't need to laugh at people or post their mistakes in a public forum.  I'll admit, there are some funny MT mistakes out there.  However, I found the tone of most of the responses offensive because the mistakes weren't humorous whatsoever.  The original post asked for FUNNY mistakes, not making FUN of people's mistakes.  THAT is what offends me about this thread.
    The problem is that the person posting the job
    didn't post any specifics about their company, pay rates, TAT or anything. With the errors made in the post, how are we supposed to know if it's someone trying to steal identities or collect information? We can't be too careful these days. Any person can open an email account or register a domain name. Without verifiable contact information like reverse lookup on the phone number or WHOIS domain name info, we don't actually know who is on the receiving end.
    Yep, and that's exactly the type of person I was describing in my posting above.

    Some people are just mean, bossy, and hurtful by nature.

    The person she is posting about has posted extensively

    about her situation on another board and what is represented here is not exactly the situation as posted by the person herself.  


    Do you not want to make sure that YOUR money given to charity is going to the right person and
    Enough already! I am a very caring person. I don't make a lot of money either.
    I still have canned goods stocked up and I know how to wash out a plastic soda bottle or milk jug and fill it up with water when I'm told to do so. That has nothing to do with posttraumatic stress or FEMA. I never said anything about either of those, so quit jumping down my throat about things I never said. It's not about the people that NEED help because they lost everything. It's about the people in their Lincoln Town Cars who can obviously afford a jug of water and DID not do it. The ones who didn't bother to prepare are sucking up the resources that should be used for those people who lost everything and NEED the help. How can you disagree with that?
    I am a very social person and I entered this job at home because it paid more money
    than the jobs in the office and I was a single parent. I just learned to balance my life outside the work environment with things that did allow me to use my social skills
    Money, money, money, mmonnneyyy. Singing the Apprentice song.
    Oh, I think I earn my keep!
    I have worked a full-time plus a part-time job for the last 15 years. I would say I most definitely "earn my keep".

    Listen, if you don't want to hear us "whining", stay off the boards, why don't you??
    Not to flame but every day there's posting after posting about how awful MQ is

    Why does anyone still work there?

    I don't get it.

    that is if you EARN under a certain amount,
    after that you must pay taxes on all. The goverment certainly isn't going to be left out of our money!!
    Are you saying that you earn 100k
    You type just enough to earn $900/mo. The
    How to get job that lets you earn only up to
    You earn less with one space.

    I work for the person. I know. Very excellent person, personally and business-sense.
    It is an INSULT to have QA hovering over seasoned MTs who know what they are doing. She trusts her MTs and again if there are questions there is one person, a trainer, who can answer them via phone, e-mail or instant message or you can send the whole report to them if you choose.
    I make 7.5 CPL and earn over $4K monthly
    Maybe to you that's not a decent wage, or maybe you're not as fast. I don't know. But this IS production-based work. So type more and earn more. I think I clear about 14,000 lines in a 40-hour work week and I bring TAKE HOME about $4K a month. To ME that's good money. Maybe I'm stupid. I know people that earn much more (are much faster than I) at 7.5 CPL. Call me dumb, but I think that's good take home.
    Again, don't forget - Guru gets a cut of what you earn
    When it comes time, i will match what they earn.
    Steelers didn't earn one of the TDs nm
    And you might earn another 1/2 to 1 cent more working
    Doubt any way can earn more than the limit of
    Point was is the person willing to make up for the slack of the person who types 1 job when there is

    if that is all they WANT to type.   Is the person who wants to be a supervisor willing to make up for those people?

    You have crap supervisors, editors and mts in the business like you have good ones.   Sadly, the really good ones of all of them are few and far between. 

    As far as I know you can earn up to a certain amount - you cannot exceed a certain percentage of the
    salary you were making when you took your disability. I do not think it is uncommon to work as you could certainly not make it on disability alone.
    What kind of retirement tells you how much you can earn?
    I will start drawing from a pension plan this April - I have absolutely nothing saying I can or cannot make X amount of dollars a month. How did you get a retirement that tells you what you can make? This sounds strange to me.
    Why only young mothers who want to earn extra?
    Why this statement? What about us older ones? I just do not get that statement because I would think experience counts a lot in this job.
    right, taxes are paid in the state where you earn 'em...
    since you work at home, you earned your wages in your state and pay them to your state.
    I have never found a program shorthand does not work with, it works outside the program (I think tha
    Yeah, I earn 50k a year and I just bought a house for a buck!

    Oh and I just got 25% of 28 million from a prince in Zimbabwe! 



    PRD is a DOS program. I don't think it work with Word, a Window's program.
    It will count everything if you go in the settings and program it to. Good program!
    Sylcount is an awesome and accurate counting program also. That will count everything if you "tell it to".
    When you have a QA person that is picky and another QA person that is very lenient where does that
    leave the MTs because some are getting a lenient reviewer and others are getting one that picks at everything. How do you reconcile that issue with the difference in QA mentality. Some people make out well and the other people could be just as good but dont. I wonder about that.
    The person MTSO pays is the person who
    Make money? I'm not making any money because of my decision. You read my reasoning
    You can agree with me or not, but don't make false assumptions please.
    You're working to make money, not to spend money.
    These people should be ashamed of themselves taking advantage of people this way!
    I also blew some money signing up with Quixtar... The only way to make any money is to bug everyone

    you know into signing up.  I felt like a snake oil huckster.  I hated it.  I was flushing money down the toilet from the moment I handed over my money. 

    RUN, do not walk away!  I do an entirely different side business now that I really love (in addition to my MTing, which I also love!)  Find something you're good at and that you truly love doing.  Then make a business out of it.  That's the best way to have a side business.  Selling discount toilet paper through Amway/Quixtar?  Not so much. 

    The CMT exam is overrated. Don't waste your time & money. Use that money on
    paid anymore just because you have it.  There are a few CMT cheerleaders that post to people like you but they are pretty well sucked up into that association.
    You can use Shorthand in ANY program, it works outside your program
    I have never found a platform it did not work with and I have worked on several different versions of Meditech. Just start using it.
    Yeah, money, that's it. I paid $20.00 for my dog. Money is NOT THE ISSUE
    walk him daily, play ball daily, he sleeps in my office daily while I work. Yeah, I got a lot of money, NOT HARDLY. And, my dog is HORRIBLY HORRIBLY ABUSED because he wears a collar around his neck. It's people like you that make me sick. I am done defending my use of the shock collar. I am going to continue with it and my dog will continue to be pampered , educated, fed, kept warm, and love me for everything that I do for him even when I remind him that his barking needs to stop. So, with that said, I will not respond to any more of your CRAP in reference to the shock collar.
    Money is money and most people will do whatever it takes when in need. sm
    if you do bring it to the attn of the office manager, why not offer her a raise to compensate. it is obvious she just needs or wants more money than your office is paying her. I agree, it is a free country and although it seems odd, unless you had it outlined in contract, she can work for whomever or whereever she pleases on the side. at least she is typing and not at a strip joint, lol. I see no conflict of interest, she has experience obviously in whichever field you are in and what is wrong with doing extra in that field. i agree with MYOB "nicely" and concentrate on your reports than looking at older reports and seeing who they are typed by.
    One person's "custom" is another person's
    "house arrest". I'd never go to the Middle East because of how they treat women. I don't agree with their laws or "justice" system. For example, the woman who was gang raped as punishment for the actions of her 12-year-old brother, a boy who wasn't even an adult. How's that for a "custom"? Let's not forget bride burning. Burqas.

    Besides, foreigners don't follow our "customs" when they come to this country. Half of them don't even bother learning English. Instead, we're expected to pay for healthcare and foodstamps for illegals and print everything in Spanish.

    I won't be oppressed or treated as a second class citizen, and I wouldn't treat others like that either. A "custom" is more like putting up a Christmas tree, not being abused based on your gender.
    i'm sure it will vary from person to person.
    I recently did the same thing and am loving it! The freedom from time clocks, the better company, make losing the benefits well worth it to me. You need to set up a plan to have $ set aside for taxes though. I should have done this years ago!
    Wrong person. I'm not the person you were
    any money.  You have a sucky attitude, a "poor me" attitude.  Get off your lazy whiny a$$ and work instead of complaining and you will make money.  I have one account at 10.5 cpl, two at 14 cpl and one at 15 cpl.  I make a lot of money, even on the 10.5 cpl.  But I'm not sitting around whining either.  And I didn't whine when I made $6 an hour.
    So, you think it is okay for hard-working MTs to earn 7-8 cpl for their hard work?? nm
    Editing is the higher skill. I earn more editing SM
    because I'm able to produce more--if the company doesn't adjust the way production's figured down and down again to keep the account from going elsewhere (when that happened to me on EditScript with no explanation of why my income was dropping, I went elsewhere also).
    M-TEC has a Basic program (12 month) and a Premier program (18 month). To WAH, you should take the P
