Because I'm not cheerleading anymore for an operation that is in the midst of a slow-motion trainwreck, that is plagued by super-powered trolls, and that is impossible to develop for unless you have over $400/month to waste on an RPC node.

The platform is rapidly centralising and as a developer, that means I'm on the outside, and this puts the lie to everything Steem claims about what they are doing. It's antisocial, it is not a way for the poor to get a chance to move up, and it is rewarding people who should be smooshed into the ground for the evil, antisocial and, in my opinion, by any reasonable definition, criminal behaviour they engage in.
