Boost Proposals are ruining this platform

The "Boost Proposals" feature has definitely been a huge negative from my experience. I can relate with others and the fact that I would at least get a percentage of responses from sent proposals and invites, but now it's been silence. I have a feeling Upwork is basically just holding our proposals while they wait for the boosted proposals to get purchased for new projects. It's all just a money making scheme to force people to purchase connects to actually get work. I'm sure on the client side they are also seeing less and seeing boosted proposals that aren't a good fit. I hope this feature gets addressed.

Yup, it's one of the things that's ruining this platform. They're trading their platform's credibility for a quick financial fix.
