Steemit opens its door under the slogan MONEY TALKS. By creating content you produce financial value for youself and for the platform. It doesn't matter what kind of content as long as money comes in.
Are you joking? Not really. Look, as a newcomer you will notice, that you are hardly noticed under the flood of new posts every second. Why not use this self-voting option if no one else gives you an upvote? It is an offer and helps my self-esteem. Better even, creating two accounts and producing complete nonsense, however upvoting each other brings money in.

But it is abusive behavior, you think and it shouldn't be tolerated on this platform! But we came for money otherwise we would have met at MEDIUM or other platforms where people come for quality in the first place.
I love to see original and creative content on Steemit! But probably I will see Steemit always dealing with this quality issue, because it is a homemade problem, or solution if you look from the entrepreneur's point of view.
Thanks for your attention and VOTE.
