    I am glad that you were helped.

    As someone with bags of career experience who has recently made a move into contracting, the answer to your question "Is that so wrong?" is Yes.

    I believed this to be a community, a support group of peers. To me one behaves like Cojack (i.e. answer the question) or say nothing. My management style is that there is no such this as a stupid question. I see and have seen the advantage of this model. I would rather someone attempt to engage in a constructive dialogue than ridicule me.

    Is this a forum of professionals or a twitter group for high school mean girls?

    It's more a reflection of irritation than any particular desire to be seen as somehow superior. Over the last 15 years or so on this site I have seen the same basic questions asked by newcomers to contracting from all sorts of previous career backgrounds, who may not know the answers but who don't appear to have even tried to find out. Hence the occasional flash of anger at yet another "dumb" question.

    That said the OP in this case wasn't actually one of those, but simply asked Google the wrong question (had they looked for "groups supporting or representing contractors" or something similar IPSE would be first one up). On that basis NLUK's response was obviously a little harsh; it was the use of "union" that hid IPSE from view since they are not one.

    Equally obviously I disagree with Goke - "having bags of experience" is fine but "recently moved into contracting" means you are a newbie in a world you only think you understand.
    Blog? What blog...?

    Post in the relevant section of the forum.

    This is General - submit a serious question here and you will(more often than not) be subjected to ridicule.

    So, have a look at the resources available within the forum and if you still have a query then submit your question in the relevant section.

    As for your recent move into contracting, AYSYCOTBAC?
