Segmentation is unfair

There has been a lot of talk about PPP segmentation and I think that it is simply unfair. Link Aunty Lilian pointed out that many posts were left untaken by US posties because it was just too paying for them. Everything is relative. A USD 5 post may seem too little for some but not for others.

I suspect there is a bit of negative sentiment towards non-US posties just as the general negative sentiment of the US general working public towards outsourcing.

Even though many advertisers have changed their tune and do not go for Geo segmentation, there is still a big number of posts still require US only bloggers. It's wasted opportunities to both PPP, bloggers as well as advertisers.
