    Hi Wes - Lior here - the writer :)

    I agree with most of what you wrote and some of your conclusions.

    I wrote it from my personal point of view - I do say no to those projects. But I understand and totally am happy for other creatives that feel differently :) The letter presents only my truth, not an absolute truth.

    I think I did mention the good outcomes that could happen, and how much I want to work with and for those clients. But maybe I didn't bold it enough.

    Anyhoo - thanks for being very open and honest about the letter. Appreciated!

    Totally! I credited his talk in my article... That's how the whole concept for the post came to my mind :) In general, Gladwell is my favourite author...

    Thanks Dirk.

    It's Yom Kippur today - a Jewish holiday which is all about apologizing and forgiveness. Very symbolic.

    Take care, and here's hope to being more careful next time...

    Cheers.

    OK man. No worries. It's Yom Kippur today - a Jewish holiday which is all about apologizing and forgiveness. Very symbolic.

    Take care, and here's hope to being more careful next time...

    Cheers.

    Hi Zach, Lior Frenkel here. I'm the CEO of the nuSchool, the co-author of the book and the one who posted this link here.

    You know, Zach, my father always told me that a man has one real thing in this life - his good name. More than money, friends or anything else. His good name.

    I've never, EVER, done anything fishy in my whole life. I would never, EVER, create fake accounts not here or on any other website.

    I've just opened DN and was so shocked. First, I was shocked to see so much great feedback from other designers about the book. Real designers. Designers that I can see their names in my Gumroad account because they really have purchased my book.

    But then I was also shocked to see your comment.

    Man, can't you do a little research before you're blaming people for being fishy? Can't you just Google those designer's names? Or go to Twitter and see that they follow the nuSchool for months now? See the love they got for our project?

    Here's what happened. Yesterday I was so excited about the launch of the new book, that I posted it here, and then posted the link on my FB account. The nuSchool is a big community of freelance designers. And many of them are my friends on FB. You know why? Because we are doing everything we can to help them for many many months now. And they are thankful.

    Apparently, those people were so thankful, and wanted to show their support so much, that they've done a huge effort. They saw my link, and opened a new account just to support our book. Isn't it amazing? Wouldn't you want people to be so thankful for your hard work that they've done so much just to show you support?

    Listen, I can see why it might look fishy. But I call you, or anyone from the DN community/platform to check on me. Go to twitter, go to Google, send me PM and I'll show you the 1,000 emails I have from our loving students.

    And next time, before you're blaming someone of doing something fishy, do spend 10 more minutes.

    It's my good name, and it's all I got in life.

    Lior
