Retraction of Prior Post

Hi Bob,

We were about to contact all of our freelancers about the press's welcome packet, but looks like you received the package first. You can ignore the background check part of the application; the press needs the updated W-9 form only. There won't be any major changes to the way we process checks; you'll still submit the invoices to the in-house editor, and your invoice will be processed the following week.

Well, thank goodness for that. Is it just you they are giving a pass or did is everyone escaping this stupidity?

I received the official letter today. Everyone avoids it, except for those people who work on site more than 30 days/year.
