Steemit is undoubtedly the best revenue sharing social media platform. On the other hand, however, this reward sharing mechanism has given room to greed, spam and scammers who want to take advantage of the reward system for their own benefits. So if we all do not unite as one against scammers, then we will have ourselves to blame. Here are some few points:
Flooding the system with daily 5 to 10+ short posts: If you go to popular tags ( relating to cryptocurrencies, steem , steemit et al) you will notice that some writers in the trending pages post more than 5+ times daily (with short lines) earning an average of 150+ SBD meaning that others who spend quality time to post once or max 2xms daily might not have the opportunity to make it due to vote sharing mechanisms used by the same people . This issue has been written by some steemians, one example is @berniesanders even though his posts are far from perfect , at least he do talk about the issues sometimes.
** Stealing from all: **please go to the account of @checkthisout and then go to the comment sections of his posts and see how his comments were upvoted here : https://steemit.com/sbdtothemoon/@checkthisout/sbd-ta-projection-for-jan-2018 and https://steemit.com/sbd/@checkthisout/sbd-correction . This issue is currently not known to many whales (please resteem and upvote this post for others to see) and most worringly , only few has acted- example @lukestokes (one of my favorite steemian and witness) who in his post : Whales: You Have Some Flagging to Do exposed this extreme case of theft. Worringly, If it goes unresolved, we will certainly see decline in revenue sharing here because few decided to take all for themselves without thinking about others who are playing by the rules. I refer you also to the latest post by @lexiconical : Why Do We Bother To Create Content At All? where he exposed such scams.
On the other hand, however, I do know that some steemians, examples, @stellabelle , @ats-david , @transisto , @spaminator , @steemcleaners , @sherlockholmes , @personz , @pfunk, @patrice , @clayboyn , @fyrstikken , @ausbitbank , @jerrybanfield (and others not mentioned here) are working behind the scenes to stopping or at least reducing scams and spams here. Moreover, they need to know about the afore-mentioned scams and we all should help them in fighting against these types of thefts. Even though some might think that it is not their business, however remember that we all are steemains and have to defend our platform!!!.
