I'm guessing you're intentionally misstating my point, because you can't possibly have believed that's what I meant.

 

What if someone who lived in your building violated your boundaries by asking how you were occasionally? How would you handle that, with no block feature in real life?

That would be on the range of a friendly response, chat, or invitation to coffee, to going to police for a restraining order, depending on my perception of threat-level.

Thank you all for taking the time to respond!

Yes, the contract was closed as soon as he completed it and got paid for it.

Sounds like it's not that uncommon then and that it may even be somewhat encouraged by Upwork. Which is something I suspected but didn't know for sure. I actually think it's a good idea to keep in touch with clients, but it has to have a purpose and context.

Christina, maybe I'm the exception, but I've never tried to keep in touch with clients, and certainly not the ones with a closed contract. I'm also not aware that Upwork *encourages* freelancers to do so, but that's not to say there isn't some Upwork tutorial that recommends doing so.
