# Stop the @GrumpyCat

in life •  last year

## We are at where words no longer have meaning!

@grumpycat is flaging fresh posts of innocent people.

### Who am I ?

• I am nobody, like any minnow on Steemit.
• No other account, just @firedream
• I have never been a victim of @grumpycat but seeing innocent people hurt is enough motivation for me to resist.
• I hate bullies. I thought that @grumpycat is trying to do something good but I realized that he is just another bully that imposes his terms on people using his 500k SP.
• I am someone that knows Steemit is bigger than any @grumpycat.

### How to stop @grumpycat

• Cats can never be tamed but they can be kept away.
• @grumpycat 's cash method is, with his high SP he is upvoting his comments ( he doesn't have too much posts ).
• I will give an link to all the @grumpycats upvoted comments at this posts comments section.
• I will flag all his upvoted comments with the below reply :
• I will request help from anybody who belives me and who is brave enough to fight back.
• I will try to contact all the bot owners and whales and try to find help.

## I repeat...I hate bullies.

Why don't people like YOU manually review content of past 3.5 days vote purchases for abuses and flag it?

Why don't bots like @sneaky-ninja manually review content of past 3.5 days vote puchases fot abuses and flag it?

Why don't delegators like @honeybeee or @blocktrades manually review content of past 3.5 days vote puchases for abuses and flag it?

Apart form you, they are the one's making profits while also financially supporting spammers.

These spammers will be harder to detect and counter after they've been allowed to build up a warchest.

Because we have lives and manually reviewing takes to much time. Several people have told you that we are working on a blacklist that can be shared between owners. This blacklist is the best option for the abuse because it allows several of us to build it as we go. There is far to much abusive content, including your own, to possibly flag it all. However, as the blacklist builds it will simply work.

Hi @grumpycat, I could write a script for you that automatically flags posts that use paid upvotes after 4 days. That would eliminate the collateral damage and save you some work. Or is the process already automated?

he wants the collateral damage, he is a piece of shit, and this is not about helping steem obviously

I am manually reviewing your posts and writing them here.
The webpage is working much better with the contribution of @maxarias.
Just with a click you can reach all the posts for any bot that are older than 3,5 days and flag them...This would be a fair fight and I would support.

What I want to stop is, flagging of innocent people with fresh posts.
I have requested this,as a minnow, from you.
But instead, you continue flagging fresh posts.

You call them colleteral damages...This is not a game, they are real people losing real money.

What option than to resist do you leave to me ?

I will resist and I will do my best to stop you until you stop hurting innocents.

Again, I am calling you to be rational... We minnows, dolphins are blue-collars of Steemit.
We are content creators, quality or spam.
Hitting these blue collars is bad for Steemit economy also.

According to my contact with whales, I see that I will not have much help since they are all expecting Steemit to be a free platform and self regulate...

My efforts are a part of this self regulation I guess...

Stop this sensless war and carry it to a 3,5 days basis and let me focus on my utopian projects and other contents please.

My flags that aren't done in the last 12hrs (yet), so if you can't find anyone to counter my flags on these "promoted" posts maybe that should give you an idea of which ideology has the most support.

Maybe you haven't noticed that I've been flagging first offender reasonably, something like 10-20% of their post value.

Vote buyers like everyone should never expect to not get their post flagged and assume the money is their until it's paid out.

I changed my notification comment to include : "By sending money to @sneaky-ninja you are also financially supporting spammer."

You're defending @sneaky-ninja bot, delegators like @honeybeee and the few forever clueless customers still financing the spamming operations.

@grumpycat I will get you the script if you will use it, what language do you want it in? Why do you have to fuck over minnows and destroy steem users across the globe rather than meaningfully advance your claimed goal? Is it because your claimed goal is not your actual goal?

This is where i feel frustrated, you stop for one week then start hitting innocent posts.

You're defending @sneaky-ninja bot, delegators like @honeybeee and the few forever clueless customers still financing the spamming operations.

My position have never changed since the start. I support your fight to stop abusers and milkers but I resist to the end to your method of flagging innocent people.
I believe you are also a self regulation of steemit but how can someone close his eyes on the net present damage you done ?
Just check this post you have flagged recently : https://steemit.com/history/@reddust/the-history-of-america-s-vaccine-court-series

I have contacted the author and she is someone with a big heart.
She is a content creator just trying to get her voice heard out of crowd by upvoting her fresh post.
Most probably, she has just chosen sneaky-ninja for the best ROI at that time.

These are the people you are hurting.

For the same day, sneaky-ninja bot upvoted 16 posts past 6 days.

You can stop this fight by just one sentence :

### "I will only hit posts more than 3,5 days old."

Can you do this ?

Very light flag, what's your point? Seems like the message was well received too.

Do you see me complaining that @Blocktrades is flagging almost all of my stuff?

·

·  last year

My point is, she is neither an abuser nor a spammer.
Bullied for no reason. Does it matter heavy or light ?

At the same day, there were spam posts more than 6 days old, upvoted to only take out cash...Is it that difficult to be picky ?

I really try to understand your motivation...you have close to 500k SP, huge investment.

You have more than %20 ROI for this investment, by simply upvoting your posts.

Please enlighten me...why would someone at your position deal with flagging innocent posts ?
What is in it for you ?

I can not find anything so I believe you are honest at your cause.

I don't know how the fight between you and @blocktrades started but as a minnow there is much i don't understand in Steemit economy.( I am learning day by day )

What I know is, hurting innocent people less powerful than you is bully act and must be resisted.

Just one request repeated for a word :

### Do not flag posts less than 3,5 days old.

Seriously ? Taking out the profits is no different than taking out ~100% of money spent.

Less than 1 hrs.
As I said, words are not enough to make you stop.

I am trying all other countermeasures.

first offenders? 10-20%??? you took my post from $100 down to$4. wtf @grumpycat

·
·  last year

lol the reality is you just do not want to compete with selling less profitable votes.
and you are down voting posts of 1 day or less old. Its not a good look man

·  last year

@firedream I am with you brother!!

·  last year

I too am a single account holder. As you know, I have been targeted by gimp-cat specifically, he hit 3 posts in a row yesterday. I just wanted to say thank you for your efforts at resisting this blatant bully. It is much appreciated.

Also, thank you for sending me 4.123 sbd from your posts payout. The loot is great, but your actions are been better! I too am resisting and support all that you are doing!

Thanks @firedream!

I resteemed it to what ever little followership i have. I hope it helps you find more audience to fight this fake feline.
If anyone in the comments thinks that it doesnot matter to them then think twice. All those upvote belongs to you. His one upvote is worth 200\$ STU.
I am not against self upvoting a post, but i am against it you downvote other and upvote only yourself, forgetting that steemit is a community.

Thank you @themobilewriter.
What I absolutely reject is punishment of innocent people with fresh posts by a bully.

I couldn't really agree more, my friend! "Hurt the customer to damage the business" is one of the most barbaric forms of abuse I have ever seen. This crusade that grumpycat has taken himself on would be a different story if he put ANY EFFORT into looking at a post and an account before he flagged them. But he isn't, he is just blindly flagging people for using THE SAME BOTS THAT HE USES!!! This tells me that he wants to be the only person allowed to use these bots, so he can pay next to nothing on his bids, get huge upvotes for pennies on the dollar, and no one will bid against him, because he will just bully them with his half million SP. "Only I can buy votes from this bot, or I will spank you". The greed is clearly evident. There is no "trying to help the platform". It is a guise to distract people from the fact that he is selfvoting, bullying, and manipulating the rewards pool in a way that no one benefits except for grumpycat and his wallet....

·
·  last year

Agreed.

I have an idea about what to do. We need far more large SP holders that are fair and diligent.)

What do you think? If we had more large SP holders, if they only upvoted, they could disincentivize spam, by redistributing the reward pool more fairly, and further, they could upvote unfairly flagged content.

Of course, I have to get in on this.

Thank you so much @firedreams for this great initiative when I was attacked and my post was only 1 day old I was so confused and after I didnt get a response why from @grumpycat I was even more upset but didn't know what else to do besides post about it here https://steemit.com/cats/@isteemithard/i-love-cats-but-hate-grumpy-cat then I saw this post you made and thought what a great idea lets team up and downvote those comments and add that reply to show this cat that animal control has been called and its time to spay and neuter

Thank you @isteemithard. You also have courage. I have seen your flags.
What i understand is, it is minnows for minnows.
So far no positive feed-back to my call for help from whales :

Do you know grumpy cat is bernie sanders which controls many many accounts holding millions?
It looks like he just wants to own all vote selling with his willing helpers like MARKY MARK the bought and paid for pet witness who is willing to publish any bullshit regardless of how fictitious.
I am thinking that maybe it would be better to attacxk people who fund the group by buying votes from them first. Then go after anyone who up votes any of the offending accounts

·
·  last year

Then you will be no different than grumpy, hurting innocent minnows using their right to buy votes from any bot they choose...
I choose to resist to any kind of bully.

It is easy to see your point of view.
Usually I would agree with you 100% but the game being played is about stopping Steemit reaching its world changing potential.
I would never advocate for attacking anyone without first connecting with them.
This platform is worth protecting and I suspect that these guys are not playing with their own money and have no need to earn from the platform
