I ran into a bad freelancer a few months back and he's been procrastinating on finishing one of my fixed-price projects. He says he will finish it, but it started in Jan, was supposed to finish in Feb, but it's dragged on to May and almost June now. Kind of pissed off and out of patience. Do the other employers on here worry about their reviews? I've paid him only about 30% of the total contract, and I have everything I need (source) to hire someone else and I already have quotes from freelancers who wish to take over and finish it quickly. I have a very long ticket open with oDesk/Upwork and they are pretty much unwilling to help block negative feedback. I've asked in many forms and ways about it, they're pretty much say "fuck you, you're on your own." I've called 3 times also. So I guess it just comes down to if feedback for employers actually matters. I have a bunch of successfully completed contracts/hires, probably averaging 4.7 or so. Any thoughts? I guess if I'm very descriptive of the situation, it won't matter, but my stars will still go down.
