Response to @transisto's Open Letter

in #haejin6 years ago (edited)

Hi @transisto, I've addressed each of your points made in your open letter:

@transisto: You do not up-vote anything other than your own posts
First, I appreciate your candor. I must say, you have been the most civil of all critics and I'm grateful for that. I'd like an opportunity to place the self upvotes into context. Eversince downvotes started raining down on my posts from the trolls, my self upvotes have been reactionary to revive the downvoted posts. There is also very clear evidence of trolls randomly downvoting any and often many of my followers' comments. The followers don't want to be downvote censored by these trolls and are scared of commenting. Even today's posts have plentitude of insulting memes, downvotes and outright lies. Do you know how many of innocent commenters have been the victims of random acts of violent downvotes? I can provide a full list if you'd like to help revive these innocent victims. Without troll downvotes, I have no need to largely self upvote and would love to return it to the community as you do.

@transisto: You intentionally produce 10 piece of "content" per day to optimize your selfishness.

Again, context is most important. I started my blog with 10 posts per day back in June of 2017 as a demand pulled blog for Technical Analysis of Cryptos. In other words, most of my posts, if not all, are in response to analysis requests made by my followers. They send me emails or make the requests on the comments. I don't pull these analysis posts out of thin air or necessarily select the coins on my own. These are REQUESTED by the readers of my blogs for analysis because they either HOLD these coins or would like my technical analysis to help augment their own due diligence. I actually have a back log of analysis requests but 10 per day has been the output since the beginning. I have NEVER ramped up my number of posts per day to maximize payouts; it's been the same since my posts were making $0.02.

Case in point on Analysis requests:

When I started blogging on steemit, I began by posting these offers of free analysis. I offered this as a service to help anyone who wanted Technical Analysis input.

@transisto: You engaged multiple times in censorship based flag wars (flagging legitimate content below zero).

It would be nice to know your fair thoughts about others downvoting my blogs to zero over the past two weeks. They had legitimate contents containing analysis requested by my followers. First, I have never initiated a downvote for no cause. Second, have you seen the type of comments being left by the ones I've downvoted? One Troll made false accusations and fabricated evidence of a virus he was infected with through using my business website. This was complete slander and I had downvoted his subsequent lies and insults. I've also downvoted memes having an asian face on a donkey..it's unacceptable. What are your thoughts on the troll comments being left on my blogs? Are they legitimate content?

Here is one of many Trolls who spammed my comments, often in rapid fire mode of 50 or more repeats. I downvoted these as I can't see how they are legitimate. I am Korean and I find this racist. Will the owner of this @kimjongpoo account please acknowledge?

How about @baejin the champion spammer? How about @nijeah the uncouth? There is only ONE sociopathic owner of these accounts: @berniesanders, dubbed as the "Bad Whale" by Dan who also programmed him to -18 for his vulgar ways. He is the ultimate self upvoter of his 3 word or single sentence or one image posts to the tune of thousands of dollars. And yet, he unashamedly accuses and attacks with downvotes others whom he deems, in his own hypocritical, perverse and farsically twisted ways, unworthy of Steemit. What's worst, @berniesanders wants his followers to report spam and selfvote abusers to the @abusereports list....the only problem is that his name is missing as it should perpetually be at the top of the list! (I believe I've seen @transisto on the @abusereports list for self upvotes.) He also was the one who approached me for a truce a few months back and we had agreed. Less than two weeks later, he abandoned the truce by reigniting a flag war. Devious and insane! If you're using @randowhale which is owned by @berniesanders, expect it to constantly be in sleep mode and not upvoting your paid requests. This is because @berniesanders uses @randowhale to do his personal downvote campaign.....in effect, he's using your delegated SP for personal flag attacks and so draining the power that should be used for upvoting the payers.

@transisto: I do not acknowledge any value to your technical analysis methodology.
• I completely disagree with the conclusion of most of your technical analyses.

Not everyone sees value in Technical Analysis. Is TA perfect? No, because it is based on probability and not certainty. If you don't understand Elliott Waves and don't see how to pattern out charts...then you are a nonbeliever. I have 26,000 Steemians who follow for my analysis and they clearly will be disadvantaged by the conditions you want to set. It'll be ideal if my followers can freely request for analysis...if they are prevented, then THAT is master censorship. Just because one doesn't see value doesn't mean others are not allowed to.

@transisto: IMO technical analysis on tiny shitcoins that are overvalued / over-hyped by factors of 5-1000x are meaningless.

If you see a coin as worthless, then that's your rightful opinion. But, it shouldn't be forced onto others. For instance, I had recommended BTS at $0.04 and it went as high as $0.92; a 2,300% profit. Many called it shit coin at that time because of the Bittrex delisting. Many said that SPR was also a shit coin because it was a dead coin for whatever reason and as I had projected, it went from $0.19 to $3.65; that was an 18x profit. Many were calling STEEM coin a shit coin when it was sub $1 but my projection was $4 and that was hit and now my projection is $14 and higher. It isn't best for any Steemian to place such censorship requirement on any blogger. I don't think anyone should have restrictions on what they can and can't request for analysis and they should posess the freedom to follow, upvote and resteem freely.

Regarding @ranchorelaxo; I've heard from a third party that witnesses did reach out to him; which was quite out of norm for Steemit. However, I'm not privy to the exact conversation but as he is listed as a developer status investor for Steemit Inc., you might want to find out more on the results of the discussion that took place.

Everyone seems only interested in @ranchorelaxo, but never mention the 10K views and hundreds of total upvotes per post from minnows who usually are often overlooked.

Last but not least, I do not have or operate a voting ring. I do not use duplicate accounts. I do not use bots except for this post so as to counter the downvotes and keep trending.

Again, I appreciate your candor and a chance to relate my thoughts.

Regards,

Haejin

PS: The trolls are doing their random acts of downvoting. @berniesanders owns these 17 duplicate accounts that not only downvote my blogs and commenters but self votes all his own to the tune of thousands of dollars and yet attacks anyone he sees as receiving too much in upvotes. A farse!

The Trolls who downvote my innocent commenters are no different than the ones downvoting this post:

Sort:  

without @ranchorelaxo you make between $30 to $60 from your followers
@ranchorelaxo adds you around $200+

you make 10 post a day, each with rewards of $250+ or around $250. thats $3000+ a day
and you do this everyday, that is $30.000 a week
you go over 100k a month, over $1.2M a year

i hope that you and your team feel well rewarded

@ranchorelaxo use his steem-power according to his will.
Why Is it haejin's problem?

It’s not. Neither are our flags to correct the earnings.

agreed... so why all the complaining? Just use your votes as you each see fit...

Look I don't know everything they do, but I do know that Rancho is a Developer Level Investor in Steemit inc. I also know that if Haejin is basically ousted by these attacks, there's a very real possibility that a very large investor follows him out the door. Or who knows, I really don't know the guy, maybe he will double down on the SP to counter the actions taken as of late. Either way, doesn't seem good for Steemit in my opinion.

because it is a scam and cheats the system.

His success rate is no where near what he claims it is, and with the influx of new people into the market in December/January, anyone listening to his TA would be down huge. There was a poster on here that started going through his posts and tracking his success rate this year and it was at -70% at the time.

What kills me is in January when he was preaching everything was fine and all these coins would moon there were dozens of people like myself saying that the market was in a downturn. It was only when it was too late that now he has started to change his tune and stop suggesting ATH and showing more corrections. Yet the people that disagreed with him (and ended up being correct) were flagged to death and insulted yet he made 10's of thousands posting brutal TA. How does that make sense?

It is like people see how much money he is making off this site and how many people are following him so they think he must know what he is talking about. Yet even with 3 updates a day and dozens of alt counts he still gets it wrong. Just because a lot of people follow him it doesn't mean it is good content.

And the earnings are from the same people that upvote before the content can even be viewed in its entirety (ie 20 min video and he is upvoted 2 minutes after posting). How is that not sketchy as hell? And then anyone disagreeing with him instantly gets flagged by the same people. And people wonder why others on this platform and pissed he is raping the reward pool, really?

You have people that document an entire trip, engage with people back and forth helping them plan there own trip, spending hours in discussions back and forth, earning a $2 for their efforts.

And here is Haejin, suggesting Bitconnect (a known scam) earning $350, but couldn't be bothered to spend 5 minutes to do basic research that could have prevented his viewers from losing 95% of their investment. What about RAIN, BERN, and countless other shitcoins that are down huge.

yall act like @haejin is stealing from you when he is smiply doing what is allowed by the system. Should he not do whathe can to maximize his profits? would you not? isnt the point of steem to make money? when i read the white paper i didnt read anything about equal pay.

all this griping over someone else being successful. I find it distasteful for people to groan cause another is making more than you .

its not built to be fair its built to work....

Flagging is “allowed by the system” too, yet @haejin sees it as a problem when he is flagged.

are you right and i agree you

yes you are correct flagging is allowed and used for disagreements in rewards and other things.

im not saying haejin is right im saying all the griping is not necessary if one can simply downvote and move on.

of course this is a platform that supports discorse so i guess thats not really a reasonable conclusion.

i also think that if haejin has the money to correct those downvotes with an upvote it becomes a futile effort that wastes voting power lol.

if you ask me all the whales are TURDS that hoard steem and votes within their circles

Flagging/upvoting I care less what people do with their voting power. It's their power to choose, and it's others for 7 days to choose if it's fair. I personally prefer upvotes when it's directed towards me, but if someone thinks that my content isn't worth it, that's their call.

I'd destinguish the difference between somebody like for instance transisto downvoting for reasons of disagreement on reward with whom i dont agree but as you pointed out its part of the system and vile creatures like Bull Shiter full of racist slander unable to even hold his ground in an exchange of views without petty threats and personal attacks!

WARNING - WARNING - WARNING - WARNING - WARNING

This person known on Steemit as @Haejin is WANTED by the SOUTH KOREAN GOVERNMENT for TAX EVASION!!! They are coming after him. He has been reported to them & they know where he is. If you upvote this person & contribute money to him you could be charged in the matter of the court case. It is best to UNFOLLOW @Haejin & @StarJuno now. Do not UPVOTE or TRANSFER any FUNDS to these accounts. Any money you send to this criminal organisation can be traced back to you.

Check out what he is doing now.
This is not cool and is showing only one thing GREED!
The 200 SBD is for this post.
Capture.JPG

He is actually doing what most of the steemit reward poll rapers are doing. Just take one from the trending list and your comment is still valid.

The only question is - how they are different?

It came now.

Hopefully he will not use it across all his posts. :/

Of course, he will. He will lose money though. The simplest option is to encourage postpromoter to stop accepting bids from haejin, or we can deny him all his other customers by downvoting them – until they stop using postpromoter.

He won't because that's not really earning him anything financially and it increase how much of his reward can be flagged.

This is unfair ,, why this upvotes is in @rancholexo with $ 231,43. I see rancho just choose it for you only, it is same as your own voice

Dude what are you talking you don't even know me I am for sure not jealous because I never was and never will or need! My life is awesome! But maybe you are or why do you even talk about being jealous.

Talking about reward poll rapers and greed. You are doing just great! 😂

danyelk

I am actually happy when someone uses the bots and earns some steem, part of the idea is distribution, people seem to forget that.

Is steem power free? If you invest that much in steem power then you should be allowed to spend it your way.

The truth Will always Be, and all lies Are Seen..

This will not last just keep promoting truth and leeches will end up with their own dry bones to suck on

Awesome, I was amazed, I'm new to steemit, very good post and thanks for the information, I invite you to visit my profile, I hope you like my posts and support me, kisses guys, I send many good vibes!

You didn’t reply to the most important point he made: You are part of a collusive voting ring.

I will flag any post you make that is scheduled to earn more than $5, because that’s all they are worth. I encourage others to do the same.

@transisto look here, @berniesanders my hero

Your point?

This is the downvote group I was speaking of the other day, and you said noone would do that because they dont earn on it.

Seems to me the mayor problem people have with @haejin's payouts is @ranchorelaxo's big upvotes.

Nobody makes money from flags so why would anyone makes a "ring" out of it.

They're just multiple accounts following a main one, most likely @berniesanders .

Ok, I thought it was his accounts, but he has a steemauto trail for them then as they all vote same time.

Read your posts and do see your point of view. I can agree on most of it too, but I don't agree on downvoting just because you don't agree with the content, and i don't agree on downvoting haejin's followers commenting without telling why. It just frustrate and make you look bad in a lot of new peoples mind.

it was for the bold comeback, not its worth

Do we really believe these flag wars will attract new users?

  1. they’re not wars

  2. they don’t affect most users

  3. yes, because less voting collusion to skim the rewards pool leaves more rewards available for others.

Lol. All this does is prove that the only accounts with power are the whales and the bots. At least it saves time by proving there is no point in new users putting any time or effort into this platform (much less powering up!!!!!). It won’t fulfill its ‘promise’ of providing income (to the vast majority of users), and the ongoing wars will just drive users away. I am certainly sick of it.

sounds alot like the real world. there is no way that money is involved and those with less of it have more power than those with more of it.

just like in real life if your not willing to invest into your balance and increase your power then the minnows will not follow you because you have nothing they want and the whales wont waste their time on you because they see you as beneath them.

we should Fork steemit and create our own platform with moderation and accountability.

decentralization is good until you realize the rich will rule your decentralized world. (they co opt everything)

Then why don't you go after the voting bots that suck >30% of reward pool every day? They vote at random, with cursory attempts at sensing spam.

well they are voting for more % of the reward pool then you, yep that's true but they don't upvote only their own posts and ignore the rest, they are voting for many users. The only problem with voting bots is that they can't distinguish between good and bad posts that is the duty of other ppl who fight against spam and scam that gets promoted by bots.
If a votign bot starts to only upvote his own posts then ppl will start flagging the bot like it happend in the past with scam bots.

Truth knows its own source. We don't want to attract new users we want to provide a platform of currency exchange rooted in truth not capitalism.

It is important to sort steem creators from money manufacturers if steem is to rise above money as intended.

This is what people do not get. It's great that he posts, but if this platform is being exploited by a few individuals it will never grow. There is so much shady stuff going on.

How is it they he receives 50 upvotes within 1 minute, when he posts a 20 minute review on some shitcoin that is dead. How is that worth $300. I comment on how the team abandoned the project, their forum hasn't had a post for 14 months, yet I get flagged by the same people that instavote him and haejin himself? Talk about a hypocrite

And keep bringing up SPR and act like you haven't had a ton of misses. Heck you and your clan flagged me when i provided input (actual research) on some of your shitcoins like RAIN, Bitconnect, BERN. How well are those working out for you and why mute actual input?

Keep speaking truth and it will Be all that remains once All is Seen

💛

A voting ring comprised of yourself and @ranchorelaxo is still a voting ring.

A Voting ring is supposed to be a give and take! Ranchorelaxo doesn’t receive anything from me either in votes or ANYTHING except my TA which he apparently values. He votes because he wants to even if you disagree as you can’t dictate his votes. You want to stop him? Do it directly to him. But don’t take out your biased frustrations on me with downvotes on my blogs.

Just like if you downvote my blogs, it’s my right to upvote it to recover. Yet I know you’ll blame me for not upvoting others. Well, your downvotes are a waste for the same reason since you can’t upvote others with it.

You want to stop him? Do it directly to him.

That's exactly what I'm doing by countering his upvotes.

Well, your downvotes are a waste for the same reason since you can’t up-vote others with it.

By flagging you I'm indirectly up-voting everyone else. I believe that @Ranchorelaxo risk taking down the value of Steem so that you can get your unfair share of it.

I'll be making more money by making sure you're not getting any, simple business decision. I find you very disingenuous and undeserving so that flagging also provides me with a good feeling that money can't buy.

Would it be so hard to tell @rancho to vote your 10x posts a day at 3 day time?

So that on top of taking unfair reward you don't do it in plain sight and expose everyone to the unfair reward your borderline scam analyses gets?

starjuno74.png Just a network that flags? Did this account that you delegate to, hate all my open posts on this day?

yup good old starjuno . Absolutely anything involving Haejin, even if it is a quality post, that goes against his TA, gets instantly flagged. That account has flagged me countless times

The flags I received on this comment (you would like reading it) were so well coordinated that I had to investigate starjuno. I strongly believe that it is his own account or someone living with him. I think it he himself and is abusing reward pool with both accounts. He also sent some Steem for another account creation.

You have no truth in your heart, friend!

You realize truth and reputation are all that matter in the end and there's no way your manufactured benefits will last too long while openly raping honest contributors?

Capitalism is the way of empty-hearted snakes and even the untrained eye can spot slithery sideways movement from quite the distance!

Steem is not money, friend. You are completely out in the open shameless robbing the blind while A11 are watching.

Hi Haejin i wouldn't worry about explaining yourself you are doing what we all wish we could do we are living in a free world and you can do what you want that's your business and i pat you on your back for such a great effort and following and reward pool if it aint you it would be someone else these people that bring you down have no life and nothing better to do they are just jealous of your earnings .These people will never change there ways and will be always jealous of anyone doing good. Stay strong and dont waste your time reading any negative posts cheers Deni Guerrera

You said "Everyone seems only interested in @ranchorelaxo, but never mention the 10K views and hundreds of total upvotes per post"
There have two reason:
First: your 90 or 95% reward comes from rancho. You can look in this post rewards. You got 323 upvotes from followers and one vote from rancho. You got $238 SBD total but $230 SBD from rancho. You got only $8 SBD from your followers ( LoL). Rancho didn't vote anyone without you. His every votes for. If you do 10 post per day you will got $2300 SBD from rancho. I think rancho's all vote is self vote and your main target is rancho's upvote. I don't know why rancho just vote for you. Can you give me the answer?

2nd: I saw much good comment in your post and some spammy comment in your post. You flaged spammy comments but you didn't upvote good comments. I saw thousands of people to appriciated you but you didn't help them with 0.001% upvote. You are following more than hundred content creators but You didn't give them any upvote yet. Why man? You are reading their valuable content and learn from them but you didn't paid (upvote) them. how lol😁.

After all I'll say your main target is rewards. You don't care about followers or following. You just care about rancho.

N:B: Sorry for bad english. i am bengali and I don't know english well. I want to say more but I can't writing because I don't know english.

Great post Haejin, thank you for putting up with lame troll abuse and posting your TA. You are awesome.

@haejin sir after some time i am commenting on your post.Many people have got questions to you but i know the reality,what you mentioned above is absolutely right.Many times i got flagged because of commenting on your post.Some time i see that your post also been flagged.I stopped commenting on your post because i was scared.But after some time seeing your post i thought now i should comment,what i said earlier i am with you whatever happens.I have got a question can you tell about steem or sbd price because its going nowhere.I always like your post.@upvoted and resteemed

I ve just had my account destroyed simply for asking BS why is he doing it
https://steemit.com/steem/@mattjack/censorship-on-steem-platform-proposed-by-witness-bernie-sanders
So far i know BS has lost at least 1 witness vote due to the above post and I'm very proud of it and hope for it to be the first of many!!!!@

Not destroyed, You're still at rep +1. Just thread carefully from now on.

as in not to annoy nazi racist retards like Sanders trying to bring censorship to the platform I'LL KEEP MY +1 AS A BADGE OF HONOUR in this case

This whole meaningless war goes to show the structural flaws in the Steemit platform. Perhaps we were not meant to have nice things.

@ranchorelaxo bring @haejin post into steemians attentions
I think it is not @haejin to be target by this blame. I see it unfair, Without @ranchorelaxo he will earn less.

Blame @ranchorelaxo for choosing him.

About post quality, It is in the eye of the readers interest and not by some steemit witness,

Thus flagwars are just a spoilers of steemit
