Violence threats force me to resign witness position

After the announcement of HF23, there were violence threats against I and my family. I cannot continue my witness position under such threats.

I have notified my witness team @dev.supporters, and the remaining team members are likely to resign as well.

I would like to thank steem users who supported me. Also, I appreciate kind words from users when I asked for advice after facing such unsuspected threats. (I would not name them here as they may become the targets also.)

Lastly, I don't know (and don't want to know) who you are and how you got this far, but your actions may backfire - you just removed arguably one of the most reasonable witnesses who may discuss or negotiate for your cause.

Sort:  

you just removed arguably one of the most reasonable witnesses

No offense man, but you are fucking stupid. Really I don't mean this as an insult, but you just are not able to think logically or reasonably.

No offense, but I think you are the stupid one. Good luck finding witnesses who may even listen or reply to you.

I don't want any witnesses to listen to me and I just found one who replied :). I just wanted to say my opinion here because I'm sick of reading your bullshit on Steem and on Discord. Have a good day!

Glad to hear you are resigning although i cant condone anyone threatening to hurt your family over your wrongdoings.
Anything you did is your fault and your fault alone.

If someone tried to rob me i would use violence if i had no other alternatives. You left these people with no alternatives.

I guess what you wrote in the second paragraph may be applied to 22.2 and hive fork, but it does not matter at this point. I will be away from this hive-related issue (at least for a while).

Hope you have better experience there.

Sad to see people planning cowardly in the shadow to hurt your family, seems like a recurring thing that former witnesses like to do.

Thank you for all your services.

Thank you. I believe that other witnesses like your team will make steem better place.

Nobody should be receiving threats of violence. End of story.

Having received my first ever death threat on Steem myself only weeks after starting out here and just blogging about working in the space sector, I have come to take it less seriously and more as what stupid people do when they're angry.

I didn't care what some malicious users commenting nasty things on steem, but this one - using personal info - was totally different story. So I decided to choose better safe than sorry.

I am saddened to hear of threats happening to you. I would even say that I hope the one responsible is brought to appropriate justice.

Ultimately, it seems that your removal mattered little as more sock puppets witnesses created and put back into place demonstrating once again that Steem is centralized. I do think that you are somewhat reasonable, at least more reasonable than others. Wishing you and your family safety in the future.

I remember having discussion with you. Even though we could not reach an agreement, I believe that it was a good opportunity to understand where each party was coming from.

At this point, I think that both steem and hive are centralized - how well it got disguised is a bit differ.

It's sad to see all of this happening on the Steem.

Same here.

I hope you and your family keep safe. No one deserves violence.

I hope you and your
Family keep safe. No one
Deserves violence.

Thank you very much. I was shocked that detailed personal info can be discovered and used by this way.

Maybe it was too easy to collect info in Korea.

글로리님에게 왜 위협을 하는지..코인을 잘몰라서 그런가..참 희한한 넘들 많네요..

얘들 중 상당수는 그냥 사고방식이 무법자같은데다... 심지어 몇몇은 이게 직업이고 밥벌이인지라 그런가봅니다.

그냥 하이브 가서 잘 살고 스팀에 신경 꺼줬으면 좋겠네요.

It's such a pity this place who was supposed to unite us all and allow for a global and productive engagement for all it's users has turned into this Warfield. Not so sure if it's worth the time to mind people threatening you either way... But better safe than sorry I guess

If you are stealing $5M, you can't expect from people to like you. There will always be someone who thinks threats and violence will solve something. If you have identity public on the internet, that's something you must consider when supporting theft.

you just removed arguably one of the most reasonable witnesses who may discuss or negotiate for your cause.

Your witness had no power over the chain, if you wouldn't follow the great leader Justin's commands, your witness would be removed. We saw how discussion and negotiation worked out in @darthknight's case.


P.S. Good luck with what's left from Steem.

I guess that's why most of malicious actors like bernie make sure they hide in shadows.

I learned a big lesson.

Most likely one of the people that moved to hive and now bad mouthing steem.

Highly likely. Yet, they are hiding in anonymity - which scared me even more.

고생 많으셨습니다 ㅠㅠㅠㅠ
