Spaminator Stop: No Further Downvotes

in #spaminator2 years ago

After all this time, we listened to the Korean community and other no-downvote proponents in regards to downvotes.

Spaminator has been stopped on Steem and all accounts on its blacklist are free to enjoy Steem without any fear of being downvoted by Spaminator or Mack-bot.

We ask that Steemit.com removes our blacklist from their frontend please.

Have a great evening and please keep healthy and safe,

Spaminator

Spaminator was started one night after finding the first of 30,000+ accounts post & comment farming run by one person or group.

When STEEM was first listed on the Korean markets there was around $700 to $1000 a day these accounts attempted to drain from the reward pool by the group I refer to as @dart.

Draining the reward pool wasn't the only problem. They were also a drain on resources. 25% - 30% of posts and votes were spam designed to drain the pool $1 at a time.

The community really pulled together to combat this before @spaminator received a delegation from Steemit Inc.

Thank you everyone who made this project a success.

A very special thank you to @guiltyparties who not only kept it going in my absence but vastly improved on it.

Thank you for creating me. ~ Spaminator

I wonder how the upvoting works. Seen it upvoting some heavy bot abusers.

Thank you for your service @patrice and @guiltyparties. Don't be stranger, keep in touch. I'll be at Steem, Steeming, Discord, and neighbor Hive

Cheers for now.

I think downvotes are needed but not in the way they were functioning what was the point of hundreds of bot accounts downvoting around for no other reason than somebodies private opinion magnified by the size of their wallet?
How many of the so called "fraud" prevention guys were actually running bid bots selling votes and upvoting themselves from multiple accounts while directing literally a mob to chase somebody for the same actions? I know of at least one popular witness who was doing that big scale while too many from the community were happy to stay quite for an occasional vote!

I hope downvotes will be brought back but in a way where u have to specify your greviance with the work and for that to be public rather than used as a censorship tool as it were in many cases no automated bullshit voting/downvoting trails and no downvoting for accounts below a certain score or not accounts that never posted ( do things openly not like a cowardly cunt hiding behind annonymous accounts)the right to curate in this manner should be earned and not by size of wallet

Yeah there is downvoting obvious spam and then being dictators. People on hive now decide who’s posts are ‘worth’ the votes they got and downvote ones they personally don’t think are worth it. That’s very different to down voting genuine spam and plagerism. I also feel that the old steemit cleaners could have been a lot nicer about how they did it. I got bots on me three times for posting my own art work. They didn’t ask me to please let them know it was me I just got immediately blocked and told I was plagerising. I couldn’t reply to any of the comments and I had to go through this huge ordeal three times to get rid. They lost the list a couple of times I think so I had to keep re registering. I wouldn’t mind had they just dropped a comment and said ‘is this yours? Just checking etc’

Much appreciated! Thank you, when will the negative reputation score be removed? Thank you...
