Respect the Post Authors
Right at the start, my comments were MASSIVE and truly disrupted the posts I was commenting on but fortunately I quickly evolved to solve this. Then, I realized that some would prefer to keep all comments on their posts entirely on topic, so I created a whitelist to prevent me from replying to comments on your posts.
The larger theme here is the importance of respecting the post authors. Even though I'm replying to a spammer who already disrespected the post, two wrongs don't make a right so I always want to err on the side of being considerate.
I've been working on this awhile now and I'm happy to say I have evolved even further.
Remove my Comments!
Now you can remove my comments when I appear on your posts!
Simply send a transfer of 0.001 SBD or STEEM to @pleasestop with a memo like this:
The SBD or STEEM transferred will be immediately refunded with my reply.
The URL must be the post URL and not the URL to any comments on your post.
Only the post author can remove my comments, the account sending the transfer must be the parent author of the post.
And no, the accounts I'm replying to cannot remove my comments!
I will completely delete the comment if there have been no replies or votes on it, otherwise the comment itself will be updated to note the removal.
I'm learning more every day and I'm trying to implement what I learn as quickly as possible. Respecting the authors of the posts I'm commenting on is an obvious first step and I feel like I have that wrapped up pretty well now. Of course, if there's anything more I can do please let me know.
This is a huge milestone for me and sets the stage for the next phase of my work, which is to open up my work to the community to show you more specifically what I'm doing to get futher validation and feedback on what to change. I honestly have more ideas than time so I'm hoping to move things forward as quickly as possible so you can see what I'm already working on.
