RE: [ENG] Why you should vote for @future.witness as your witness on Steem!

in #future8 months ago

As one of the top witnesses on Steem now- Can you tell me how you feel about these changes to the terms of service? Some open and honest communication would help during these trying times.

Do you agree with these changes? Were you consulted at all before they were changed? Do you really believe people need written permission to promote each other? Am I seriously not allowed to promote anything that isn't Steemit?

If you can't answer these questions that isn't a good look for the future of steem...

User Conduct

14.1. When accessing or using the Services, you agree that you will not commit any unlawful act, and that you are solely responsible for your conduct while using our Services. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you agree that you will not:

14.1.7. Use our services to promote third-party platforms or to promote each other without our written permission.

Hi, thank you for the interest in our publications. We will always be happy to clarify any point about our vison, our values or our roadmap. In order to answer to your concerns, could you kindly share with us the source of these terms of services? Where it comes from? Which "Service" it refers to? We look forward hearing from you soon.

Sure, on the pull down menu on the top right of your screen on steemit.com there is link to the terms of service- https://steemit.com/tos.html

When you scroll down to section 14. User conduct, there are a number of subsections. I posted the 2 relevant sections above but here they are again-

14.1. When accessing or using the Services, you agree that you will not commit any unlawful act, and that you are solely responsible for your conduct while using our Services. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you agree that you will not:

14.1.7. Use our services to promote third-party platforms or to promote each other without our written permission.

Is this something you truly believe in as a basis for a decentralized platform?

We are witness of Steem blockchain, we do not represent Steemit Inc. Feel free to use https://steemit.com, https://busy.org, https://steempeak.com or other platforms, you can even develop your own front end if you need it. The Steem blockchain allows that and be sure that we are doing everything as witness to defend your rights to setup your own version of Steem. Our values ​​will always defend the decentralization, the innovation, the liberty and the creativity of all Steemians.

I understand that, I was more asking if you agree with what Steemit Inc is doing?
