Prepare yourselves... Wall Street is about to crash upon hearing this news, but I've had to suspend my auto-voting after less than two days.
The Crash of 1929
I thought I was doing something nice by spreading what little I have to offer to a wider circle of friends and followers. Unfortunately, my puny account cannot sustain this.

There are apparently other issues as well, such as the following: while the auto-voter worked exactly as advertized, it can take me some hours to follow up on my votes with a comment or a resteem. This actually got me a complaint from someone today who didn't realize I had voted, and thought I was only commenting. Sigh... I will reconsider exactly what I'm doing.
Look guys, I know my vote ain't worth shit, ok? I could just spend it all on myself. Plenty of people do exactly that - and I've stopped following some who do.
Here's something else: If your 100% upvote is not worth at least $0.02, stop voting on comments! You know that gets rounded down to zero, right? If you don't know, you better listen up...
ANY POST OR COMMENT WITH LESS THAN $0.02 ON IT GETS ROUNDED DOWN TO NOTHING IN A PROCESS KNOWN AS THE "DUST OFF."
So while giving someone a 100% zero value upvote on a comment might make you feel good, the recipient gets nothing and you have just wasted TWO HOURS AND FORTY MINUTES of your voting power. It isn't normally a problem with posts because they will generally have at least $0.02 on them, so adding a little more dust to the pile does not get wasted.
I'll be back later tonight with a post, but voting is switched off completely for now. Sorry.
This concludes our programming for today. Cue the National Anthem. Lights out.
