A bot is a Bot...is a BOT?

Definitely not the topic of choice I want to write on before vacation. Okay, last post before my next "last" post. Today I decided to wander outside my circle of friends. I should have known better.

First Post of the Day


I tend to forget to use Presearch but remembered today so I did my search on Steemit to earn the points.

A post highlighting a Steem-made millionaire caught my attention. The investor bought Steem during the early days. I must say, very impressive. The post failed to mention what the esteemed Steemian is doing with his stake on this platform.

Hmmm…not so impressive afterall. Alt accounts and comment self-votes. Hey, to each their own!

Second Post of the Day


It was a resteemed post. Of course, another opinion on bidbot usage and delegation. So it got me thinking. Is one bot better than another?

Obvious Bots

The obvious bots are on steembottracker.com. All Steemians are free to use, unless you are blacklisted.

Result: Make a bid, receive an upvote. If you delegate SP, you will be paid passive income!


Whitelisted Bots

Does the acronym ‘ocd’ before the ‘b’ make this bot any different? Exclusive bot to whitelisted members of the community.

Result: Make a bid, receive an upvote. If you delegate SP, you will be paid passive income!


Community Bots

Make a delegation, receive an upvote!

Result: Delegate SP, receive an upvote.

End result is the same to me. Only difference is the exclusivity of the bot. Did I miss something here?

Now I understand your cryptic message on Ash's late night 'miffed' post :)

Truthfully, I stay away from them all now. Did you see that simplymike just did a post yesterday asking for comments surrounding the whole "passive income" thing?

Get off of this and go on vacation!!!

Oh, this wasn't the post I was referring to @lynncoyle1. That's my next one. I hadn't planned on writing this one, but well, sometimes I can't help but write on a topic I come across on here.

I did see simplymike's post, but didn't have a chance to comment. My next post will be on a similar topic. It seems we are all trying to find our path on here. :)

I'm trying to get off! That's why I put my out of office notice out early...and then I go write a couple post. Go figure. ;)

I did take a bit of time off and so this two day old comment from you I hope doesn't get answered @beeyou 😎
