Good vs Bad And The Morality Of Steemit - @Smooth Operator Inspired By SadesteemCreated with Sketch.

in food4thought •  2 years ago

What a sweet @smooth operator! He makes me walk on razors edge. Oh Dear ....Its kind of funny by now. That flagging monster bot really loves me and downvotes even my comments but no bootie-hurt felt at all, so please do not misundersta, so please do not misunderstand. 

I am not complaining because somehow The Experiment seems to work better than before and the trending page looks much more interesting and appealing. 

I am not sure if 100% fairness is possible in any community but all we can do is try our best, also hope that everybody involved in the team takes responsibility and their part very serious in improving this platform. 

I really would like to stay.

Good VS Bad

1) Growth

If you can't build with them, do not hang out with them! Everyone wants growth of course. 

"To someone creating a new technology, nothing feels better than people actually using what you’ve built and telling their friends. Growth feels validating and tells everyone the company is doing things right. At least that’s what we want to believe."

2) People 

Good people basically mean well and they almost always have good intentions.

Bad People usually have bad intentions. Thats about it. 

“It takes very little to govern good people. Very little. And bad people cant be governed at all. Or if they could I never heard of it.” ― Cormac McCarthy, No Country for Old Men

Brain storming with @mindhunter 

Comment : WHO decides who's "Good or Bad"? At the end its all about your personal view and opinion on issues. To be honest, I do not like to be downvoted for every post I make but I try to focus on the so called GOOD of the whale's intention. 

"Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibility while bad people will find a way around the law " - Plato

Enter the @mammasitta into the Platonic landscape. Welcome. I do love your quote. 'Good or bad? The morality of Steemit' - That sounds like a new post headline to me!


I am planning to write more on this topic soon but for now I need a huge steemit break and a Gin Tonic!

Hahahaha !!!!!
I am not a quitter .....yet

I would like to add that in case I find out that those flags harmed my reputation, I do work hard for, I will leave this place like many other amazing members and new friends I made. I do miss them a lot. Too many cool people were driven away by unfairness @onceuponatime @uwelang

No worries ! All is good ....I am running my own experiment finding out what topics the bots would flag. Kind of ridiculous to downvote good subjects like my previous post "Welcome to Steemit" trying to help new users. Doesn't make sense to me.

got ya - I think it is purely downvoting when other whales upvote no matter what content :-) - take care @mammasitta - just arrived at my favourite trade show location in Germany

·

Sade gets nearly everybody even Steemers lol

Seeing Sade on Steemit... that alone deserves an upvote!

·

OMG , I finally can send you a big Thank You for all your votes and Yeah , My darling Sade needs to sing here a little bit to loosen up those developers and investors.

Hope you are well !

The Good vs Bad! Well, that is something. Good and Bad may indeed be subjective, but sometimes also quite objective IMHO. I sincerely hope we as the community can find our ways to work together where we need to make the community a great one to be part of, the service (Steemit) a great one to have as an important tool for us, and a bright future together.

Music is always a good way to relax and wind down. Sade is one of my favourite singers. Thanks.

·

I have too many thoughts about good & bad but I had to stop because I found myself getting in a very deep and sarcastic place. Maybe I write it out again when I am full of laugh and a positive mind.

100% fairness will always be hard to reach.

·
·

100% fairness is hard to reach indeed; you are absolutely correct!

We need to create something that will be liked by 100 thousands even millions of users. Whether that be still with financial rewards, or not, to make that happen, I don't know. I only know that the way power and rewards are distributed right now will prevent this community from becoming large and therefore in the end will die.

I totally understand what you mean . Nite nite !! So glad for the music.

We are dealing mostly with so called dry people here. Developers, computer geeks and so on, the site is too complicated in general. I got used to but the easygoing fun is minimal.
Something is missing!

Sade, a dream from the 80s, cool!
De Sade, just a cruel crazy guy from the past :D

·

I am amazed that a few know who Sade is 💫 But everybody knows @Smooth

·
·

Yeah, didn't want to comment on that lol

·
·
·

Fair enough 🌚 lol back

Sorry you are feeling the slings and arrows from the experiment. Fortunate you know how to take care of yourself in times like these.

Haha ! Oh no ...I am very fine, warning not needed and this is just a summery of the last weeks commotion. I wrote clearly food4thought because some newcomers are still confused. I can take a lot but some valuable people quit and that's sad. Anyways, nice to meet you!

·
·

Same here ... I thought I was following you BUT ... good thing I looked... cause > now I am : )

·
·
·

I did not follow you either :) but now I do and its my pleasure. You should join our #mammasitta steemit chat group and promote your posts there.

Mammasitta 65 thou shalt soon be 66 and no thing shall stop thee.

I am really working hard on my reputation and my network of followers. It seems not to go ahead and if so I still don't understand how it's calculated. If the DownVote bots harm my reputation, I will get very upset for the first time. Really upset.

·
·

You're all good. I feel for ya. I felt my first sting this morning of Steem's dark side. But that's what makes us the stronger Blockchain. We stick together through these growing pains. Let the virus fade away, give it no more thought or effort, forgive and certainly forget.

Please continue to get your sweet posts over to @Steemtrail. So we can keep sharing them with new and old readers and creators that are attracted to positive vibes.

Peace, have a wonderful Sunday, and know there are far more eager to read your good story than some bot that don't know what it doin. :)

I really appreciate your kind and encouraging comment and also posting my stories on steemtrail. My thoughts on this topic were short and bittersweet but as long my reputation is not harmed I will keep my cool. It's all good 😊 As it is but my outlook on the so called insider "clique" changed a lot. There is no perfect world / community, unless we do create it ourself. My peace is my freedom! My independence my art !

A great philosophy piece! I love the Sade tune at the end - I love her Greatest Hits album with a cold beer! More rebel material is already rising!! Ha ha! ... https://steemit.com/philosophy/@mindhunter/singapore-like-steemit-leads-the-good-life-under-a-benevolent-dictator-but-how-long-can-the-american-dream-last

STEEMIT SOS!! I over-stimulated myself on Steemit! I have 1% voting power!

I think that if you will power up your post there will be no flag! This is just my opinion. Anyway, you make great posts @mammasitta and I know you don't deserve to get flagged, but you should think that it's an upvote for later! :D

·

Its all good ....no worries because I can finally see the difference on payouts for everybody. I wanted to share my own experiment in my own ways though.

·
·

Glad to hear that! I like your experiment :D

Well that's true, but when it comes to good and bad I like to think of it as harm and unharm. Bad to me causes harm to you or others. Good your safe, feel safe, and you have not sustain any damage mentally and physically, which leaves you unharm. That's a little something I keep in mind just in case I'm in a situation and is uncertain of what's good or bad😇😈

·

"Kind and not kind", will we be harmed while downvoted? No, it might seem like but no , if you look closer ......The result looks good to me so far. So, all GOOD 😊
That was in my mind when I wrote about this topic. Very nice to see new "faces" here on steemit. Super nice that you stopped by. You just got a new follower. Something "good " :) for you today because building your own network is so important. Very good for me as well to read your feedback. Gee, How often did I use that word "GOOD " Let's forget all BAAAD ! Hope this makes sense ...
