Someone PLEASE Splain Me Why I'm Getting Downvoted...?...?...?...X

in flagging •  5 months ago  (edited)

While I do enjoy a good controversy, I'm not sure I appreciate being the subject of one! Can someone please splain me why I keep getting downvoted by @trollshunter? Is there something in my teeth? Can someone please splain me this? I honestly have never heard of this Steemit Defense League. What is their deal?

No, but really. What is their deal?

Here's my post that got the most recent downvote:

The SteemItDefenceLeague used to be a group of accounts created by someone that randomly downvoted people. About a year ago, their delegations were taken away, which makes that their downvotes don't do any harm anymore, but the accounts are still downvoting.

I've been getting more random downvotes too! I see it as a good thing.

I can't wait to read the comments on this post though... :)



!popcorn :D

Why do you see it as a good thing? Might I ask?

Also, hey whatsup! Haven't seen you in awhile. But not on any account of yours, of course. I'm just now crawling out of the rock I was under. Good to see you around! I hear good things about you these dayzzzz. As usual.

We need people to stop being afraid of downvotes and also to use their downvotes.

Curation is a two-way function! :)

Sigh. I mean, yeah. I guess. We do need that. And I guess this breaks that barrier a bit? But actually, no. I think it just makes it worse, because the downvotes aren't really legit. They're random and arbitrary, and take all the meaning out of the purpose thereof.

But I feel ya.


I don't know why - but because this is a new little fish in the sea you should not care for now :D
To create an account and to name the channel in a fancy "defense" way is not worth much. Excited about the concept or if it is just another flagreward thing. We'll see :)
