Life is a matter of choices, and every choice you make makes you. John C. Maxwell (source)
This article is about choices we have here on Steemit.
Some people choose to ignore spammers, scammers and plagiarists, saying it's not their job. I don't agree. It's everyone's job! If we want a clean and safe place for us, we all have to do something. Ignoring them will not make them stop or change their behavior.
I've been approached by friends asking me how to report fake accounts and spammers and this made me realize some people have no idea how or where to do it.
For those of you who are new to this, please read Steemit FAQ to learn about what is considered as spam, plagiarism or abuse.
Examples of spam comments include (but are not limited to): "Nice post"; "I like your post"; "Nice picture"; "Good song"; "Great story", etc. source
@curie has a very good example of how to leave good meaningful comments:
tell the post author what in specific you liked about the post, why you liked it and/or how it made you feel. source
Did you know that you can be rewarded by @steemcleaners with steem for reporting spam and plagiarism?
So it's up to you! Are going to tolerate and ignore those not respecting the rules or are you going to take action?
