This feedback trend of yours. This is worrisome potentially.
Not as worrisome as an average private feedback percentage of just 82% and over 15% of contracts that never led to any earnings (cancelled or refunded) to hide visible bad feedback...

My belief is, it is hard to drown a guy with a 100% JSS, at a rate of $62 to $75, successful on the platform for 7 years now. And with a perfect 5-0 profile, having hired more than a dozen fellow Upworkers. That's exactly the profile Upwork values the most. Not bloggers. The business people at Upwork.
It's nothing short of astonishing that you have all that experience and presume to coach newcomers, and yet are so stunningly unaware (by your own declaration) of the consistent issues faced by newcomers here, such as clients not paying for manual time, clients tricking them into starting work without a contract and then not making payment, clients never closing contracts, the JSS hit associated with no-pay contracts..and so on, and so on, and so on.
