Are bots sucking the life-force out of steemit?

in bot •  3 years ago

The current state of the bot infestation seems pretty counter productive for us living/breathing folk. I noticed that there was a group of like 30 bots that would auto-vote on posts which had the steemit tag attached to it and hit the right keywords (whatever they might be) but they didn't do much but get you to the top of the "hot" section in your respective tags... at least for an hour or so, then you drop like a hot potato.

I don't really know if they have a direct negative effect on posts right now unless you're posting more than a handfull of times a day due to the recent steemit-fork that happened which now penalizes those who post a ton of content daily.

No clue where things will go from here but I'm just going to hang out and see for myself because I am curious.

I agree, I love posting here and honestly am one of the guilty serial posters! I believe I post good quality content but even getting a response from a live person is rare. I think I am going to now kick my steemit addiction and detox for a week. I will then come back and reassess the situation possibly with a fresh view. Thanks for the most decent comment I have had for a while. Just asking but........ uhm....you not a bot are you?

lol, no I'm not a bot.. and I don't remember the exact metrics but if you keep your daily posting to either 4 or 6 times per day (the number is where my memory fails me, just so happens it's the most important part... doh) but you'll be safe.

you might want to look into it just in case. I only post at most like 3 times a day so It doesn't really concern me personally all that much.
