RE: I'm mourning for Steem | Will see you on the other side

in #oclast year

Hey, @soyrosa.

I'm feeling it, too. I haven't been so consistent with posting anywhere until STEEM. I suppose the same could happen on HIVE, but it's not just an automatic thing. Maybe in a little while I'll feel better. :)

I really don't think we can trust Justin.

I think that's largely the point about all of this. We shouldn't have to trust him, or anyone else, for that matter, because no one person should have that much influence or ability to affect change. When they can't, it's less a matter of trust as it is the freedom to be more involved and more of an agent of your own destiny.

Without a major miracle, that doesn't happen on STEEM from Friday forward. Whatever is left of STEEM goes to TRON or goes away. Either thought is sad, but most of what truly makes STEEM, well, STEEM, will be on HIVE anyway, (and just for the record, whatever baggage and dirty laundry we've had here, we'll be taking with us to HIVE), and most likely, the rest of the folks will follow in short order. Where else is there to go where there's even a potential for the community that's been on STEEM where at least decentralization is being talked about, if not actually being achieved on different levels?

I'm sounding like a cheerleader for HIVE. I'm actually not. I have many of the same feelings as you. I think I'm just trying to cheer you up. :) Thanks for being one of those to hold on through thick and thin for the last two-plus years (right now it's seeming like longer). There aren't a lot of us left that came in together.

I can always trust your comments to have depth and sincerity, I appreciate that about you. We're basically Steem Twins, born here at the same time, so I guess we'll now both move to Hive at the same time with very similar thoughts and feelings too.

I also could've written the more 'upbeat' version of this post, and a lot of words you wrote in your comment could've been mine too, but I also wanted to let all these other feelings out, as I really do feel the sadness.

Ah, you know, we will see many familiar faces on Hive, and I actually believe it won't take very long before we browse on one of the Steem frontends and don't recognize the place anymore... That's when we know we'll have made the right decision.

Cheers and a 100% upvote because rules don't apply anymore anyway :D
