Sarcastically, me and whoever else who also creates good content only feels the need to buy votes for promotion because people like @trafalgar only stop by to downvote us. What if upvotes were more evenly distributed? #newsteem #oldsteem #samesteem
You, @trafalgar, perfectly represent the exact reason why there is a huge demand for bidbots. I doubt exposing this to you will make any difference since you are likely to just continuously bitchslapping others without giving a damn.
Do you really do more good than harm? But I guess you're right though, your e-dick is bigger than mine.
It's also worth mentioning...
Most of my the steem I earn never leaves the blockchain.
I have a full ongoing website project related to steemmonsters which I'm constantly expanding to help both adoption & retention. It is already live at https://steemmonsters.club. It has awesome features like free leases to active users and rewards for battling even to those who don't yet have a sm account.
I've sponsored over 600 SBI to a multitude of different steemians, helping retention with both them and the sbi/delegation market. I'm actively involved with different tribes and curation.
I mostly make crazy good, unique content. I constantly support other creators and I even try to bring new users to the platform.
Alternative solutions to the bidbot problem
Fucking upvote more people. Oh, you can't? Is it too much to ask of a single person? Then delegate to various curation projects and incentivize the creation of such projects.
Pay a team to design and code a steem gateway that motivates people to use it. Make it NOT SHOW A FUCKING TRENDING TAB! I would pay for it myself if I had the money. Oh look, @traf has a million SP. Too bad that's not me.
Stop fucking whining about people doing something with their steem instead of selling it for fiat / other crypto! I could have cashed it out instead of further investing that value here!
