Hello Sir! Thanks for these updates!
The proposal system is something that should be looked after. I understand completely why the return is boosted, and would love that people who are not active on Steem remove their proposal. Is that maybe something that these accounts would do?
I feel its time to move on and give others the room to breathe and thrive too. Feels a bit like a boycott, same with the witnesses who publicly stated that they choose for another chain, but still run a witness node on the Steem blockchain.
Everybody is free to do what they feel is the right thing, but is this really the ´right´thing?
Thank you for the support @pennsif!!

Hopefully over the next few weeks the SPS and witness list will return to some sort of normality...

And with you I pray for the same! Thanks for being on Steem, you're an asset.
