You get messages from the Greens that tell you they removed your message for being naughty.

Other than entertainment? No.

You get to do unpaid Customer Service work for Upwork, while warning newbie freelancers to not work for free.

I am grateful for the free time that active members spend here. I am learning a lot and avoiding headaches. They have a drink paid in Milan if they happen to come over here.

Actually, I find being active in the community, at least reading and paying attention, has kept me abreast of best practices in using Upwork contracts, new announcements and  "features" from Upwork, and different potential client issues to avoid. I've learned a lot from the community here. 

 

I've also networked with other freelancers and built a referral network from people I've met here. 

 

Also, it is entertaining sometimes, as Petra mentioned.

I think the OP meant financial benefits or getting hired more Smiley Happy

Yes, I meant if it “secretly” pushes on top of the algorithm when clients are searching for freelancers or smth like that..

LOL - definitely not. You're not the first person to think that, though - did you hear that on You Tube or something?
