      Well, I'd be happy to help

      Well, I'd be happy to help out these babies, but first I think I'd need some on-the-job training with having immense, problem-causing wealth, in order to begin.

      I guess to know about the problems of the affluent you need to be affluent and thus don't really need any money, thus the low balling of $30.

      Anyhow the concept of those "problems" is so disgusting it makes me want to vomit. Such people don't need psychological support, they need to die in a fire. Such would solve their "boredom" problem.

      Most of the snobbery

      Is coming from the $40k/year nonprofit heroes/desk jockeys slumming it up in run-down roach traps along the C line. I'm pretty damn sure the true 1%ers living there don't give a rat's ass about southie townies/bike lanes/etc.

      Missed opportunity

      They should have recruited some of the fantasists at the recent Beacon Hill handicapped-ramp meetings.

      So many questions. So many.

      1. "Blog ghostwriter." When the hell did this become a thing?

      2. If anyone feels that the burden of all that money is causing them pain, I will happily provide pain and money relief.

      3. Do they understand the, shall we say, overt assholeness of offering only $30 per post to provide the illusion that rich people are more thoughtful and literate than they actually are?

      Is this a joke?

      This might be some satirical thing. You never know with those Craigslist ads.

      Boredom?

      If they're so bored, they should go out and spend that money. Kick start that trickledown I've been hearing so much about.

      Is this performance art?

      Wealthy people need peon to help self-aggrandize. Even though it pays a poverty-level wage, we'll call ourselves job creators!

      Almost too rich to believe.

      How the rich get richer and the poor get children.

      i.e. pay someone to create content for your site for you, and don't pay them much; and make everyone feel depressed and go all 3rd World/pre-WW2 family size...for the only fun...available to those w/o "real" problems.
