We have a prevalent issue that many people on this site face. I detailed (with screenshots) what exactly the UpWork scammer’s plan is by showing a conversation I had with one of these types over Discord. It is valuable that we know exactly what it is they want and what it is they’re up to, and yet, my post didn’t break any rules and was deleted. I spent close to two hours on this, and my account was seeing issues with messaging others. UpWork was something I mentioned in my message, as I had wanted to tell the person messaging me that if they were messaging me for the purpose of helping them with UpWork that they should go away. I am a new user of this site, and find this response to my post to be laughable and sad. I don’t mind if my post is locked, but deleted? No, that shouldn’t have happened, and I don’t think it responsible of a site that is PLAGUED by UpWork spam scam nonsense to punish others for making the community here aware of what’s going on.
I want my post restored, and at the very most, locked but viewable if that kind of post needs to have commenting closed on it. It is ridiculous that this happened, and I’m trying to inform the people here of something important. However, I can’t do that if I’m getting shut down by people who don’t even care to tell me why the deletion happened in the first place.
