Then you might want to contact support, because clearly something is wrong. I tried to click on the button, even though it said it was private, but it didn't go anywhere.
"I also think snide implications that his profile might be trafficked are unacceptable."
Can you explain what that means? I have gone through the thread and I am not sure what you are referring to. I am not up on the lingo yet.
It sounds as though Valeria has figured out what the problem is... She is asking if you see a link that says "Flag as inappropriate" above your hourly rate.
We ALL have that that link on our profiles.
That does not mean your profile is flagged as inappropriate. That is a link that presents a tool for people who see your profile to report it if there are any problems.
So the good news is your profile has no problems at all. You simply misunderstood what you saw there.
I am new to Upwork and is also seeing the same note on my profile page "flagged as inappropriate" - It is public. It also appears that although I continue to update my profile my stat remains at 30% - can someone please check out my profile and advise.
