I always figured some of these freelancers that tank their JSS and come here saying OMG EVERYONE LOVED MY WORK JSS SUCKKKKKS did this crap. This is why I leave clients alone about this stuff. Well, that and I don't care. lol
I'd be annoyed by this too.
Jennifer, you darn well should be annoyed. Your understanding of the ToS section John copied is identical to mine.
You have a sterling reputation on U; I wouldn't worry about one out-of-line FLer. Just like clients, FLers do not expect to see all 5 star reviews - and when we do unless there are ample written comments to back it up > we think it is just as 'fishy' as a client might.
Clicking on stars is easy. Writing a line or two less so. And far more valuable.
