re: "I find most of the replies here to be a reflection of the bias of this platform in favor of the client"

 

Yes, well, the cients are the ones who pay the money.

 

Keep in mind:

Upwork loses a freelancer, who decides to stop using the platform? So what. Another freelancer will take her place.

 

Upwork loses a client, who decides not to post a job and hire somebody here? That is a real problem! Because that is money that is NOT spent to hire a freelancer such as myself.

 

I'm a freelancer. If a freelancer leaves, that doesn't hurt me.

 

If a client leaves and doesn't post a job, that is money out of my pocket.

Preston,

 

I hear you loud and clear. It is very pragmatic and logical. 

 

I hope this is admitted as a policy by Upwork. 

 

Thank you for the enlightened explanation. Freelancers should accept their fates and not expect any consideration - just do or die. There will be no more issues from this corner, lest I be considered an engrate.
