Important Changes to Spaminator

in #spaminator2 years ago (edited)


This morning the official Steemit Inc delegation to Spaminator was removed. That left Spaminator powerless. The scammers and exploiters rejoiced.

But alas, the joy of the scammers was short lived. I would like to apologize to all scammers for cutting their vacation short.

Important Changes

We will keep this brief and to the point.

  • The Spaminator Bot (the program that operates the downvote function) is now back and will be issuing downvotes with @theycallmedan's account. A great big thanks to @theycallmedan for coming forward and first delegating 100k SP to @steemcleaners, and then offering his own account to be hooked up to the bot.

  • @Spaminator the account will replace the function of @mack-bot, issuing short warning downvotes. It will still try to curate as per our previous post. We'll work on the scope as a community at a later date.

Have a great Sunday.


Dan to the rescue :)

Thanks Dan!

I also think some kind of token that you would give out to people delegating SP would make @spaminator even stronger. Later on maybe those tokens could be used in exchange for upvotes or something like that?

Fight spam, get rewarded.

That's the model @steemflagrewards is currently using. So, it's ready to go if SC wants to adopt it.

Hats off Dan. More or less same amount of Steem Power

I would like to apologize to all scammers for cutting their vacation short.

That was quite a line. Scammers should be like: "ffs, give us a break...will ya?"

So, you are blacklisting for 9 (copy/paste) out of 960 manually written comments? That was my reaction for the top 20 Tron witnesses news, but that's OK, I know how to downvote, too

If you've stopped then that's fine, your blacklist is lifted. The list will update in a few mins. (edit: it's done now)


@spaminator, please excuse me, I couldn't answer you in discord, it doesn't work for me. I can only write to you here. I agree that your work against real scammers is very important to the Steemit community. But there are real bloggers on your blacklist who don't write spam. Maybe you could, for example, go to my blog and read all my posts, analyze them and monitor them? I don't write spam. All my posts are original, where I post my own photos. I invest in Steemit, buy coins in sports. Usually spammers do not invest anything, they only get it. Please be fair to me. Please help me. I hope for your attention to me and hope for your help. Thanks.

Glad to know that you will be here as you are important for the platform to save it from scammers. #steem on

That's very good news, because I thought that was what the answer would be! Thanks @theycallmedan!

Glad to see the scammers will still be thwarted. I was wondering how that was going to be accomplished! Thanks @theycallmedan for stepping in to fill the void!

Hmmmmnnnnnn……… Very interesting dear Watson... :>)
The battle continues...

Powering down and not going to use Steen any more been here for a long time.. the down vote button is being abused by many large and small and it is causing problems that are not being addressed .. and will not be addressed.. the sign up is still rediculessly long .. and the search feature still sucks .. well have fun everyone ..

Thanks to Mr Dan for the great kind heart to support this great community. Fight on @spaminator

I don't understand why my account is being marked as spammers last time I check we can always reference the source of a plagiarized content which I do often and I haven't been active for some time, so it's kinda surprising to see my account on spam list please remove my account Asap

Are you still comment farming? Please stop.

Hello, good morning, I wanted to know why you are voting me negatively and taking my earnings from my posts, since I am publishing with photos of me and the words are also mine.

Hello, how does one know the reason they were put on the spammers' list? Least that could be done is be informed where one has errored
