I just wanted to say publicly how disappointed I am with the new pricing system which I have told Thumbtack directly.

This is not the first time people have contacted me who didn't really want the services I quoted for, or just wanted a really cheap job, and I am being charged $8 each time by Thumbtack which is apprenetly using some kind of dollar gridding system that it uses uses at its' discretion.
