oDesk And Elance Merge: Happy Or Not?

oDesk announced their merge with Elance. Is this a good news for freelancers? Well, this could be exciting for most of the oDesk contractors I believe. But as for the Elance freelancers? I think they are quite disappointed or maybe anxious. The issue really boils down to price.

I understand if Elancers are little edgy on this venture. I read an interesting article on Why Freelancers Are Dismayed at Elance's Merger With Odesk. One freelancer even says to reconsider this self-distracting decision. Furthermore, oDesk is being viewed as a site that offers rock-bottom pricing without providing high quality freelancers with adequate opportunities to get paid more by distinguishing themselves for superior efforts.
