Down voting : A Motivational Killer or A Strategic Use of Power?

in steem-help •  2 years ago

Yeah. That's the way Steem works. If you think about it, that is the entire premise of the platform. The more Steem POWER you have, the more power you have. That means power to censor, and power to be an ass**** too. In fact, I'd say that to many, that Power to Censor, is a motivation for garnering more SP and rep.

I don't particularly like that premise, and I think it's a critical flaw that may keep interested parties away from the platform, but documentation and users are pretty open about that dynamic of SP = Power. And so I think that if the community wants to change it, they should be talking to devs and coders, rather than to the people who are simply playing the game by the flawed rules.
