 Here's my opinion on this.  I think that it can be a useful forum.  This
would be especially true for the little guy (i.e. a 1 man consulting shop.) 

 Some possible topics:

- Subcontracting
- Rates for a service for a particular area
- Contract samples

 IMHO, it should be allowed to post opportunities and consultants seeking
work.
