RE: Sad, but not yet defeated.
I have had responses from some of my current witnesses. I appreciate that as I am one of their constituents. The concerns you express are viable and I understand as well as empathize with your current state of mind concerning our STEEM World and the direction it is taking.
You, like myself and many others, are devoted and loyal to this platform. That may be why at times we are critical of its direction. Constructive criticism is not disloyalty, actually; it is a sign of great loyalty!
Since I believe this post deserves mass distribution, I will be tagging a number of witnesses I currently and have in the past endorsed below.
The above list is not current as I am reviewing my witness endorsements due to HF21 as well as other factors.
