Haturday, evil @grumpycat, and other random stuff

in #haturday6 years ago (edited)


Hi Steemians! I edited this post from the original to bring something to your attention. I want to let you all know about something awful that @grumpycat has done. I'm sure you've heard of @grumpycat but maybe you don't know the specifics. He claims to be on the forefront of combatting bidbot abuse. Fighting bidbot abuse? How would one define abuse? Well I would define it as someone who spits out crappy posts 10 times a day, for no other reason than to use bidbots and make a profit. Posts that have no substance. Posts that add no value to the blockchain. Sounds noble right?

Well here's the thing. @grumpycat is an evil contradiction. He wants all bidbots to adhere to a 3.5 day rule, yet he downvotes posts that are younger than 3.5 days. Not only that, @grumpycat only downvotes quality posts!!
So that poor chap who poured his soul into an article for 3 hours, an article that deserved attention, an article that was worth much more, he scraped together some sbd and paid a bidbot, and the hardworking author is the one that gets downvoted!!


@grumpycat is taking money from charity!! Let me explain: @sneaky-ninja is a decent and responsible bidbot. Not only does @sneaky-ninja combat bidbot abuse by working with steemcleaners to actively root out spam posts, this bot and its owner @michaeldavid recently announced that a percentage of @sneaky-ninja's earnings will be donated to @youarehope. @youarehope is an amazing organization that helps people in need all around the world, using the blockchain as a means to raise funds. Here is the post that announces this great new initiative. This post was doing well, getting a decent amount, a post in which some of the payout might give food to hungry children, or maybe it will buy mosquito nets in areas where malaria is running rampant...
Well what I wanted everyone to know is that @grumpycat chose to downvote that post by $45!!!

@sircork, the founder of @youarehope, and other kind folks helped to restore some of the value, but even so... this was a heinous act, and something needs to be done. We need to increase awareness about what @grumpycat is doing. Please help spread the word that @grumpycat is essentially stealing from charity here!!

In other news, the love it/shove it challenge is really taking off and I'm so excited!! I love reading everyone's posts! My voting power is only at 37%, 75 hours until full , so I'm not going to vote on any of them right now. If Steemit would let us bottom feeders have a slider, that would be awesome! I don't like using Busy or esteem. Someone once told me you can download a slider, but only with a computer, and I use my phone. Does anyone know this: If I were to go to busy or esteem and adjust the slider, would it stay that way even if I wasn't using the site or app? That way I could vote on all these fantastic posts, restore my voting power, and stay on Steemit...it is my goal is to comment on each love it/shove it post though. ❤ If you've never heard of the love it/shove it challenge, I'll give it to you in a nutshell: write a post explaining 5 things you love, 5 things you dislike, tag other people you'd like to get to know better, and use the tag #loveitshoveit That's it! It's kind of a community building endeavor. If you're interested, anyone can join! Read the original post here if you want more details! https://steemit.com/loveitshoveit/@snowpea/the-love-it-shove-it-challenge

Also, it's #haturday, a tag started by the beautiful @saffisara, so wear your favorite hats and post a pic!!
Here I'm sitting with my favorite little 3 year old! She's such a sweetie! Yesterday her dad asked her, "How much do you love me?" She looked really thoughtful for a couple seconds and said, "Hmm...14" Maybe 14 is a really high number for her.

Today I'll be kinda busy, because I have to take my daughter to the dentist about a half hour away. Other than that I'll have some dumb household chores to do, but I will catch up with everyone soon! 🙂

A few other random thoughts:

I wish smartphones were designed to die at 5%. This way if you weren't near a charger, and the phone was dead, and there was some kind of emergency, you would be able to at least make a phone call.

How high does a bullet go when shot straight up into the sky?

I miss my old cats, Cosmo and Willow. They were best buddies. I want to adopt a couple of cats again. Two when they're kittens, so they'll be friends.

Why doesn't Steemit search remember our searches? It would be useful, instead of having to type the whole thing out again? Why do the suggestions for user names only include some Steemians?

Well, have a great #haturday everyone! Thanks for reading! 😃

Love, snowpea ❤thealliance_enginewitty_youarehope.png


Ya cell phone with a reserve tank I like that idea lol

Great another fucking whale-war... Bla bla bla so and so is taking money out of my pocket. Please cry me a river. The whole eco-system is a bid-bot scam. There are no holier than thous. Your guys are ill in the gutter together.

Hiding behind a FAKE charity that exsists only on Steemit, probably created by you, with no accountability and no way to know where/how the money is distributed is just another gutter-tactic.

Man this is "community" is really sick and disgusting. Its basically one level above trolling in etiquette and one level below Machieavelli in sociopathic deviousness and screwing-your fellow man.. Great job!

You're extremely cynical and you obviously haven't done your research. @youarehope is one of the most transparent charities I've ever seen, and it was created by @sircork.

Get to know me a bit better before passing such hasty and harsh judgement, I'm not evil.

Sometimes it seems that Steemit is scripted by someone behind the curtain.

  • @GC is a prime example someone might make up in a novel, but here he is in real life wreaking havoc and being a hypocrite...
  • The whole haijin battle was fun to watch, but seems to have disappeared off my radar...
  • The only way you can't seem to sign up for Steemit is through Steemit.com. It evidently works fine on busy and blocktrades, but I have 2 friends who signed up over a month ago and never received their activation email. What to do...???...
  • The head technology officer of Steemit admits he hates democracy and supports the deep state...
    • And goes around censoring certain beliefs...
      • Quite bizarre stuff going on around here, indeed...

I spent the last few hours reading posts about @grumpycat I want to believe he feels he’s not wrong and want to learn facts that help me to come to an understanding of his behavior here on steem. I’m on fire over internet censorship and money, life censorship and starving innocent beings of information that want to know. I feel people involved even @grumpycat are misunderstood. Even if some practices are being called out, kudos to @drakos for being vigilante, spending his time on this topic. Bringing these behaviors to light. I’m still learning my approach and fighting the free will hippy inside me. I love everyone. :)

I’d love to discuss a larger mission that could help, it’s nothing new but it’s been working so far in governed bodies like the US gonverment. (Cringe) I’d like to suggest a system of justice. Maybe a Steem Marshal. Like state parks. :). With voting and teams based on “districts” topics. If the peers judge guilty of breaking decided “laws”. You get you idea?

Thank you @snowpea. Yeah it does not make a lick of sense. How somebody can be so self righteous and trying to supposedly help a purported problem here at Steemit ( with penalizing who he says are the culprits) and then turn around in the same breath and "rape" the reward pool with $50, $70+ Self Upvotes on two line 'useless' Comments . Unbelievable :( (thanks for the heads up, Full Upovote from me!! )

Another contradiction I forgot to mention...self-voting little meaningless comments is so much worse than using bidbots! Thank you for stopping by and for your comment and upvote! :D

@snowpea, below is the message @the-resistance gave to @grumpycat.

Come, resist with us.
Maybe we will be too weak to stop him but we will put our sign on all his comments "WE ARE RESISTING!"



you can use the steemplus extension if you use chrome, firefox or opera for the vote slider

Indeed he's a contradiction with everything he does. None of his actions make sense and that's why I joined @the-resistance where we actively downvote all his self-upvoted comments. We need more people to join and be active against him.

Thank you for your comment and support!! 😃 @grumpycat 100% upvoted this post last night and I'm really confused @drakos. A few different possibilities are bouncing around in my head:

  • He wants me on his side
  • His conscience was pricked
  • Some kind of glitch in the matrix
  • He likes the bad publicity
  • He's upvoting it just to downvote it later
  • He was drunk and thought he was flagging me
    What do you think?

I joined the resistance too. You probably already saw that and that's why you found me lol. Truth be told I can be really good at getting the word out about grumpy cat, but I've never flagged or downvoted anyone before. Ever. No matter how offensive someone was...

$21.75 for 5 words and 1 crappy picture.

This right here is one of the many things wrong with this platform.

@grumpycat if you really want to help the platform. How about going to some of the growing communities on here and giving them support.

I see many MANY lengthy, well illustrated and credited articles that don't even get to $10 let alone $21.75

The downvotes are coming. Muahahahahaha

Because he is a sociopath with stolen identity and no balls. Nothing more than insignificant COWARD dying to be noticed by all the cool kids, because he's never been a cool kid and he's super jealous.



  • You are flagging innocent people and calling them "collateral damage"!
  • You are trying to impose your rules by using your SP on ones weaker than you!
  • You have rejected all the diplomatic proposals we have brought so far!

Your self upvote is flagged by The-Resistance team using the WE-RESIST bot.
We will be resisting with a team, stronger each day, unless you stop downvoting innocent people.

To your tyranny WE-RESIST

Thanks for the YAH promotion! It really is aggravating to seegrumpycat doing this crap.
The slider bar... You can go to busy.org and get one, or you can get on steemauto.com and make a "fanbase" for yourself where you vote for accounts at whatever percentage you choose automatically, or you can join curation trails at whatever percentage you choose. I figured this all out after I earned my bar and then "bought" my husband one... lol!

You're welcome! YAH is worthy to be mentioned as much as possible! I broke down and used busy.org for their slider lol. Went through #loveitshoveit and upvoted everyone.😂 I just don't feel comfortable commenting without upvoting, even if my voting power is nearly dead haha! Speaking of the love it shove it challenge, I haven't seen yours yet! Anyone can join, and I think yours would be interesting! :)

Great post and lots of great stuff in here. I agree that grumpy dumpy cat is a pain and not fair what happened 👊 again and again 😝

You new challenge #loveitshoveit was really fun to do anf great so many jumped on the idea 😉
