IMO feedback, both public and private, should NOT be allowed for either party after a dispute and/or arbitration.


Was a contract that ends in a dispute "a great experience" for either the client or the freelancer? If not, why should they not be allowed to express that the same way any other freelancer and client are allowed to?

The party that "loses" always has something negative to say. 

 


Almost invariably the feedback has been left before the dispute starts because generally (the vast majority of the time) a dispute starts with the client closing /canceling a contract and requesting their escrow funds back, and the freelancer disputing that request.

That means the client has already left feedback, that ship has sailed.

In this case, should the client expect "a great experience" when repeatedly requesting work product that violates Upwork and Wikipedia's Terms of Use? I don't think so.

In this case, the feedback was left after the dispute.
