Proof of stake and censorship

You are wrong here brother, the blockchain itself is free from censorship. The post you made about @sneak will forever remain in the blockchain and no one can ever change that. I am not sure what is going on here or why you are being flagged but I have faith this will be worked out in time. I think it is good you bring this up though because the use of the flag needs more discussion imo. For now stay focused and keep posting brother. Do not worry about how much you are earning and focus on creating content you enjoy.

I agree with you @thejohalfiles, but I also do think that there is something to what @jacobgadikian has said. I too have had many posts blocked because of either:

  • users disagreeing with me
  • some sort of bot/flagging system put me on a blacklist for disguising my links with a shortener.

It can be pretty frustrating if your post gets hidden due to a downvote/flag without any way to contest it. My solution would be to change the flagging system so that maybe it lets people know the comment was flagged, so that they can either flag it themselves or upvote it. This way the downvote bots get less power and the whole system becomes more democratic. Decentralization is the end goal, so why let one group control/monopolize?

I do see the catch 22 here, but it is an age old philosophical thought experiment.

I´m agree with @thejohalfiles "I think it is good you bring this up though because the use of the flag needs more discussion imo" I´m learning a new things reading all of this, thanks God my post remain in the blockchain..! if I faint I have the certainty that it will be there! through time, history and eternity.

You're right and so am I.

The blockchain is free of censorship.

Censorship happens on steemit.com regardless.

Or another way to put it: you're not wrong... Neither am I ;).
