1000$+ for a post like this :/

Is this supposed to be a joke? Or a very interesting way of showing us how useless the "trending" page is when people can buy such big upvotes?

I really hope the ones running the bots are blacklisting you for future use!

@themarkymark - what do you think of such an excessive use of bots like yours? I know you dealt well with spammers and abusers in the past :)

Flagged for disagreement on rewards!

Self-upvoting this to jump over the xx comments of your used bots!

Friend, this is out in the open theft. Also known as shameless capitalism. You aren't bothered by it, so it's super rampant in all layers of life!

The steem concept is broken until the densest among us catch up to the truth about the difference between money and currency, and that steem is only special if the majority of us use it to transcend money back into true currency.

Steem is about replacing the trappings of capitalism with the comfort of the Golden Rule, which most activity here thus far certainly violates. This is the result of greedy capitalism and the producer belongs in a money pit not to be held in high eSteem.

This inverted behavior and result is how things will Be until the densest among us choose to support each other rather than emulate this exact behavior in search of money while sacrificing eSteem. 💛

You do? Are you sure you're doing your best? Capitalizing on loopholes to knowingly drain the honestly generated currency of others is your best?

Friend, doing your best means loving yourself and All. Never would Anyone's best be to claim more than their honest share of shared currency 💙

Check this one - similar - seems a new circle rising here on steemit stealing from the reward pool. Reported already to some bid bot owners.

Every comment beneath Your post, is about Your post my friend.

Your post reminds us of a school shooting. David Hogg is not real.. David Goggins is don't you See?

People like You pretend to be people like David Goggins and that is less than theft, it's capitalism. Clean your mirror and you will see the truth as reflected. Only the truth deserves respect, esteem.

This post I suppose deserves just enough Doll Lairs to illustrate the truth.

Which it has, thanks!

He seems to be up to something similar with Steemit:

https://steemit.com/steemitschool/@dobartim/steemit-school-school-of-life-combined-with-blockchain-technology-customer-witness-day-5

Using the Steemit-Logo without permission, making it look official... this could do harm to Steemit.
I reported to @steemcleaners. Maybe they can do something.

·
·
·

I am sort of embarrassed to admit that I'm from Ontario now. I do remember getting scammed by someone in Burlington more than twenty years ago. Fckng Burlington.

·
·

I THINK STEEMIT IS NO LONGER LEGIT.. ITS JUST LIKE THE BANKERS IN THE REAL WORLD... ITS FOR RICH OR SCAMSTERS OR PEOPLE WHO ARE GOOD AT ASS LICKING.. FOR SPEAKING THIS TRUTH WE GET FLAGGED OR MADE FUN OF, ETC. JUST LIKE IN THE REAL WORLD, NEEDS HELL LOT OF CHANGES.. I GUESS THATS WHY DAN LEFT IT FOR GOOD (EOS).

When you want to Flag them but see their Steem power lol

·

this post is for comment

don't use my wall post and blog for your steemit bot
thank you

·
·

Hilarious, lmao!

·
·
·

@gait79 I know right! I was laughing so hard because it's true lol

·

Even though I wouldn't do it myself, I don't blame the people who abuse the reward pool.

If you distribute $65M in a year for posting, commenting, and upvoting on a website like Steemit, what do you expect?

Do you think everybody's going to come here and upvote only content that's worth it? There'll be people who are going to take advantage of it.

Good luck trying to flag all of these abuse posts. It's a pathetic whack-a-mole game. As soon as you flag one, ten others will pop-up. No way around this in the current system.

This system is designed to fail. I really have a difficult time what people investing in Steem are thinking. Do they think that investing in a platform that blows off 6.5% of their investment on a content like this in a year is ever going to make money?

·
·

Saying "Don't hate the playa, hate the game" is the same as victim blaming.

·
·
·

There's no victim in this game. Who is the victim?

Are the content providers victim, because they don't get paid what they deserve?

No one owes you anything. If you don't like what you're paid here, there are thousands of other websites to post your content and thousands of other ways of to monetize your content. No one guaranteed you any income here.

Are the investors the victim, because they lost 60% of their investments since the height of the market in January 2018?

I'd almost say, yes, but I wouldn't. Because it's investors' duty to do their due diligence. After spending one week on this site, it was obvious to me that it was bleeding cash and wasn't investable in its current form.

Are the users who have to search for hours to come across a single piece of content that is worth their 3 minutes to read?

Are you kidding me? There are millions of websites and you have to spend your time here? Why?

You might ask why I still hang around here, because this platform has some potential and perhaps, we'll be able to build a community and successfully make the necessary demands to turn it around.

·
·
·

thank you for your kind words

·
·

it is something we all try have to learn
steemit is evolving and we have to evolve and respect pioneers

·
·

Steem is both a test and an opportunity for humanity to transcend money back into true currency.

You are right that we are failing for expected obvious reasons, seemingly rigged like you're saying.

It's up to us to come together and enforce the difference between eSteem and Money. Simple as that. We don't allow steem to become money, we laugh at posts such as this until the truth is established as the only Way to Be.

·
·
·

The problem with Steemit is, it is doing exactly what the libertarians are criticizing in governments, that is redistributing other people's money.

Most investors aren't aware that those extra coins created every year to be distributed to the authors and curators as rewards are actually a form of tax on their investments.

This tax amounts to 6.5% of their investments in a single year and a good deal of that tax is blown away to content like this.

I have already written some posts about how to change this system and I'll keep writing. So, I think I'm doing my share of work to fix this system.

·
·
·
·

Can you point me to the paragraph in the white paper where this is stated? All I can find is 15% for SP holders and 10% for witnesses.

·
·
·
·
·

You can find it in their official FAQ. https://steemit.com/faq.html#How_are_the_new_tokens_distributed

75% [of the 9.5% annual inflation] go to the reward pool, which is split between authors and curators.

If you do the math:

0.75 * 0.095 / 109.5 = 0.065

Hence, the 6.5%.

Most people aren't aware that inflation is a form of tax and I plan to write a post about that later today.

·
·
·
·
·
·

A little too simple if you ask me. How do you take into account the anual decrease at 0.5%, the 10% for the witnesses and the 15% for the steem power holders? As an investor not being a witness and not powering up, the inflation would still be at approximately 9% this year.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Here is a formula that takes into account the annual decrease at 0.5%:

0.75 * (0.095 - 0.005 * (CurrentYear - 2017)) / (1.095 - 0.005 * (CurrentYear - 2017))

InflationTax(2018) = 6.19%

It comes down to 6.19% instead of 6.5%.

I don't have any problems with the payments to the witnesses or steem power holders.

It's a decentralized system and someone has to power the system. Witnesses do that.

If you think that the witnesses don't deserve their 10% cut and if you explain me why, I'm willing to listen.

15% payment for the Steem Power holders is just a dividend for holding an illiquid asset, which takes three months to liquidate.

At the end of the day, that 15% only provides an advantage over regular Steem holders, who have the advantage of holding an liquid asset that can be sold immediately.

By the way, even if we consider 9% inflation, it's corresponding tax would be calculated as the following:

0.09 / 1.09 = 8.26%

PS: All results rounded for simplicity.

Great point. What exactly is this supposed to be beyond a paperweight within the community. It's so frustrating to see individuals getting so much off literally nothing and those who are actually real, relevant, meaningful content at $0.00. There needs to be more control over the voting system so this nonsense doesn't continue to happen and turn people off!

this post is for comment
steemit bot views are to be posted on your own blog and walls
don't use my wall post and blog for your steemit bot
thank you

·

I completely agree! I'm stunned at the disregard for OTHERS HIGH QUALITY content...
I'm only voting Good or Excellent posts from now on that include, high quality content beneficial to the Steemit #community and #blockchain -
I'm hopeful that if we all jump on board with this initiative , we can collectively help towards eradicating plagiarism and low value content, and intern, attract new users that will provide high quality content for the platform.
Maybe I'll be creating a curating trail with this in mind.
Thanks for Commenting @theaustrianguy

·

thats the magic of payment I guess.. you can buy anything with money.. and in recent time most of the posts in trending page are posts which received big bot votes..

·
·

Hahaha. I reply this comment because I interest this. I Agree with you

·

@theaustrianguy I've been tracking the trending page now for a week and all I can say is I'm not surprised.
sigh

·
·

thank you for visiting my post
I think that steem bot vote system should be told to steemit owners if you want them to change it

Thank you again

·

thanks for the comment

·

Uh, so one weird thing is that they are participating in a contest where they are a significant donor. The history shows that another donor has also won a round.

I mean is that even ethical? I’ll put my flag in for that reason alone. I deal little to no damage, but if the entire site actutally clubbed together over the next six days...

·
·

thank you for visiting my post
the best way is please use your own wall and post in your account your views

Pienso que el uso en exceso de bots es malo para todos ya que esto solo causa que los usuarios publiquen contenido de calidad para entretenernos amigo! @theaustrianguy

·

I give 1000 thumb for this comment. (y) 1000 time

·

and how is it in you for eight hours to get 1000 $ Steam, open the secret please

·

I could not agree more

·

I GUESS THIS IS MY 101st TIME POSTING THAT WE NEED TO REMOVE TRENDING AND HOT PAGES, TO GIVE EVERYONE A FIR CHANCE, ALSO MADE A BLOG/POST REGARDING THIS MATTER AND WHAT ELSE WE CAN DO TO MAKE STEEMIT A FAIR PLATFOM. ALL I SEE IN MEETUPS AND CHATROOM IS MEMBERS LICKING WHALE ASSES TO FOLLOW/UPVOTE/RESTEEM THEM..

ALSO CAN SOME ONE PLEASE TELL ME THAT WHY BEFORE MY PAYOUTS MY POST REWARDS FALLS BY 20+%? WITHOUT ANY FLAGGING/DOWN VOTE...????? WHATS GOING ON?

·
·

they fall because that value is created by the average value of steem against the dollar, the price of steem is tumbling so therefore your rewards tumble too.

·

Think of it as advertising. Why is it your business what others spend money on? Steemit was created as a capitalist free market platform in dans spirit. If you want to regulate behaviour through force youll destroy this platform. Social justice always destroy.

·

And am sure you have never upvoted the man, but you could flag him for buying upvotes.

You people with higher powers are so mean...I earn nothing so you can flag me too if the truth is not allowed on this platform....Then i pack my bags and head back to Facebook with peace of mind!

·

It is impossible. GIVE ME MONEY! Almost 1000$. Do you know that in Poland you must work for 30 days to gain so much money?!

·
·

it cost him double that in paying for upvote bots. he is making a huge financial loss

·

Good ¡¡. I upvoted the post.
This is fine people.

Disagreement on rewards

More than 90% of all votes are bots.


Upvoted for visibility

These are all promotion posts for the account @dobartim who calls himself "Dr. Great Success" :-)

Thanks to excessive vote buying the trending page has become the trashpage now.

I like your initiative @fbslo, just voted for your witness!

·

Thank you :)

·
·

I adore Western World because is so nice, it always works with facts not sentences that consist inside speculation.
What you did above, my dear @surfermarly, especially in the first 2 sentences is called
perjury with speculation. Still I'm sure You are nice and heart warming person...

·
·
·

It's a promotion post featuring the #steemitultimatechallenge which has been launched by @dobartim, so there is no speculation. It's all on the blockchain. I just read it.

Whether I'm a nice person or not doesn't really matter here :-)

·
·
·
·

On other hand, You mind @dobartim's decision to give all His earning to Steemians ? Why do You feel like that ?

·
·
·
·
·

I don't know if @dobartim invested all his earnings in Steem or not, that's also not relevant for this discussion at all.

I don't feel anything about it, I just analyze, think and pronounce. Maybe that's the difference between your statements and mine. Mine are rational arguments, while yours are just emotion-packed and off-topic.

I adore Western World because is so nice, it always works with facts not sentences that consist inside speculation.

The Western World.... not sure if you even know where you are? This is the Steem blockchain, hosted on servers and filled with life by people that are spread all over the world. You may do one step back and reconsider your thoughts though.

PS: No need to explain why you jumped in here, since you were paid by @dobartim for your support :-)

@dobartim Friend I have followed you lately and I think that your support to the community is incredibly great if someday I could raise as much money as you, I swear and I would do the same but you should not allow people like @flysky to continue sinking this beautiful community. I have not yet participated in this challenge although I plan to do it but with fair rules, as an organizer you should do something about it with these guys who take advantage of the steemit distribution system for their own benefit.

inspirational for me , good post flysky

Thank you for emotional and honest story. Thank you to my family.

Mothers are the second name of God because she is the only one who came in this world to give us birth and always take care of his/her child, even she grow old.
We also have to take care of her because they also need that love that she given to her child for the years.

I got emotional because i am also very close to my mother.

Thanks for your post @flysky.

no problem, you are doing a great job.
Always prepare to be a rock when anything comes to your family because it's a vice versa process,
Firstly your mom did but now it's your turn.

Have a great day :-)

Flagged for disagreement with rewards. I see a lot of people complaining who will not flag...

·

I flagged, too. But what we need is the bidbot owners removing their rewards. Otherwise it will have no impact.

·
·

You can't rely on them to backtrack on their transaction, they would have had to not upvote it in the first place and refund the bid.

Would be nice though, but bad for their business.

·
·
·

Aren't we all responsible for our doings? In my eyes the fact that it's their business doesn't justify they're supporting abuse. Maybe blogging is my business, too, even though I vote manually and don't have a bot that does it on my behalf. Still I curate carefully according to the rules and being aware of the impact.

I don't think it's our job to balance bidbot owners' mistakes. Why do we have to spend our VP in order to flag the spam they upvoted, while they just cash out their SBD and don't care about anything but their own success?

There is a heavy disequilibrium of responsibility. The result is an entrance hall called trending page full of trash. If this was my website, I'd be really concerned.

·
·
·
·

If the above comment and those in the same vein does not receive Your support, fellow steemian.. I'll be left thinking we need to build the real version of steem from the ground up. I'm shocked at the lack of care on this foundational topic, yet everyone seems so quick to make a grab for perceived currency that hasn't even been generated.. what with such flimsy netting!

Just like you see with the slave money system, it is on us to hold the truth about what steem actually is and what lies and abuse actually are.

Friend, do not hesitate to completely murder every single account that behaves in a capitalist manner.

Immediately let up and support them if they learn how to support themselves first. The initial murder is the support they need to support themselves. It's always been simple and I promise I'm right just do your part and this place will be clean as you created it.

Support artists, the content you love and flag the shit out of all money talk, pool splashing, mindless zombie behavior.

Your opportunity to transcend the prison that is money into freedom derived from true currency is daily eaten by the same lies that created money in the first place. The same people who piss in the money pool are pissing in the shungite Sun sauna we're trying to build as true currency generator for All.

Steem needs to be clean or it's not worth absorbing 💙

·
·
·

thank you for visiting my blog

·
·

It could be handled either way. Large stake users can flag it as they have the most to lose.
The bot owners might look around and see they are going to lose support if they don't review how the bots are being used.
Everyone can fight about it, to help find their position, and the voting bots are just "this weeks battle" the trending page was already a joke. Now it is just impacting those who feel entitled to be on it.

·
·
·

I'm glad it's evident now that something needs to be done.

It's not us who have to assume responsibility for the obvious lack of control in vote trading.

Have you seen that not only one bidbot owner has reacted so far? They obviously don't care about anything but their own financial outcome. The trending page is full of trash and spam, and it seems that we all agree that it's great the way it is.

·
·
·
·

I see the bid bots as the direct result of how the reward pool and the choosen few have managed voting and supporting the community up until now.

I am supportive of the bot owner who is trying to consider the effect his bot is having on the community.

It is absolutely "Us" who have to take responsibility.

·
·
·
·
·

I believe everybody is responsible for their own VP, no matter if you are a bidbot owner, investor, developer, curator or content creator. If I mistakenly upvote an abusive piece of content, it's me who has to remove the upvote, independently of the financial consequences.

Obviously bidbots are flourishing due to an imperfect distribution of influence in the eco-system. But that's a different story.

My VP's at 65% now after flagging abusive content several times, while not not only one of those who boosted this abusive content to the top has even considered removing their votes. While we lose power, they cash out their SBD.

To me that's definitely not the way it should be.

·
·
·
·
·
·

I like you, but I have to challenge that...

How many days have you enjoyed full voting power with out flagging anyone? It seems like you were fine with what was on the trending page until recently.
Many were not. It is subjective.
So, finally something you don't like is happening, I think it is fine for you to use your voting power to help correct it.

By the way, this applies to everyone. Not just you.

Good one :-)
You are right, distribution of rewards is subjective. Is abuse subjective, or do we have something like an unwritten law we agree on? I have no idea. I thought we all agreed on not supporting scam, spam, liars, plagiarists, etc. Maybe we didn't agree on that.

I think I have never enjoyed of full VP ever :-) But then it was mostly because I upvoted and not downvoted that much.

I'm off. Enjoyed talking to you! As always :-)

@surfermarly clearly deserves to be on the trending page while mindless bullshit and artificially promoted, manipulative content does not. Do we not see how to fix the entire thing automatically as a way of life?

Imagine the power in...

numbers 👀

Imagine being truly powerful because you are aligned with the truth along with the majority💡

Imagine if as many people that came together to ignore the truth, came together to enforce it. What would the trending page look like if it featured what was truly trending among the people and not what was being artificially programmed by careless capitalists like everything else in the mainstream?

That is the only way the page can look unless we're among a majority of actual breathing zombies. Basic math, @surfermarly for pres!

Talking like a true communist. Aligned with the truth along the majority? You realize that is the narrative used by nazis? To claim to own the truth and use the power of the majority to strike down the minority? Just because there are mostly clueless wannabe communists here doesnt mean thats the best way forward. In fact, its the worst.

The rewards for this post are ridiculous and I completely disagree with them, therefore I'm issuing a flag.

In the future I will continue to comment on your posts this way as long as you are buying votes.

People like you and me are the reason to buy bot votes, no one interested to buy.

We are not encouraging with an upvote for a good comment or a good post!

I dream to become a German Pokemon Trainer

I've been here a couple months and the insincerity is the first thing that stood out. There are people who share thoughtful comments and you can tell they're just trying to get a vote, but at least they put some time and effort into what they're saying.

The group that bugs me are basically e-beggars with lazy, low-effort "thank you for posting"-type content. It's like chicks fishing for compliments and attention on Insta, but instead of putting SOME work into a cute photo they just snap a pic of themselves laying in bed, messed up hair and face pushed back showing off the double chin.
