Thanks for the appreciation. Nice to know about your liking for John Travolta.

yes divine thank you very good report, happy day

Great!! You are welcome my friend.

Everytime I've a friend on fb with a birthday is a good reason to put a steemit post on their timeline. Thank-you 😇

Oh, that will be a good idea man. Thank you.

What happened to your reputation? Any issue? If you want, we can discuss and see how that can be improved.

Good day..

😆 you're the second person to mention my reputation. If this is an issue, I don't know about it at all. @cheetah helped me tremendously with her robot research, but I found @steemcleaners to be be arbitrary and ignorant. They will not communicate and do not oversee their robot, but seem to assume that the parameters they have set Cannot be in error. The site @cheetah found is a copy 'almost' plagiarised from a book that the public wrote, and was published for the common weal throughout the Victorian era as an encyclopaedia for common knowledge to not be misused. They at @steemcleaners decided 'without' any blog research, on evidence of a singular part of a series to Not Show. I received queries from my followers, and found what had been done, even though the post had votes, it was said to be of low rating ¿ Queried several times, it appears there is no human @steemcleaners who reads replies, let alone checks the blog from which the posts are targeted. It is not my overall reputation in balance, it is the use of robots without overseers that is the question. There was no spam nor any plagiarism (apart from possibly in www site @cheetah found) and I had written an explanation all my viewers had read in the series, so if, my reputation is now in question, then it is because of arbitrary, ignorant, bullies.
Bullies need to be pulled up. It is the first step to being a terrorist, and we all have enough violence without allowing bullies on steemit.com
Keep on keeping on. 😇
If one hears or reads something belittling, then the query and focus should be on the source, not the object. 😂 I don't lose respectability by being the victim, but how much re-tweaking of robots is going on now, that 'they' can lift their heads¿ 😉

Hmm, frankly speaking, @cheetah being a bot, sometimes wrongly flags the posts, but I think what I did was to give an explanation on the comment posted by that to clear the air.

I never experienced such thing with @steemcleaners though, and I got to interact with couple of them when I was flagged once or twice, it was mistake and after discussion, we could resolve and I found @steemcleaners a chance to correct myself as all the points mentioned were valid ones in my case.

Hopefully, someone from @steemcleaners gives an attention to you and you get it resolved.

I think discussion is the best way to resolve the issues.

True, but have had no reply now for several days. Someone asked me to go on steemit.chat but as a non-computer user and steemit.chat not opening for me, and after thought, I decided to not have private chat, but keep it all out here for posterity and the public. Robots hide bullies. Maybe not, but who's to know when the driver's so arrogant as to not enter conversation, and thinks his robot protocol is all it must be, without human oversight apparently. No comment or query or anything from @anyx but @cheetah banned me. Go figure¿ They act like bullies, they view as bullies, they make decisions without consultation AS bullies, I guess they're practicing to be terrorists. Who knows, when they so out of humour that they don't communicate?
Also as addendum : this morning @cheetah didn't comment on my post, but attacked me. That is, they can break rules they police, but frown on us doing so. I believed in steemit.com, and I believed in @anyx, but this morning showed that @cheetah and @steemcleaners are both hand in glove together, they don't actually read a post as a part of a series, but also they can break their own rules. Bullying!

Enzo Ferrari?? What a nice fact that this guy was born on the month same as me. Meaning that if they can achieve it I can also someday on my own field
