Fair Warning--Please Resteem

in steem •  5 months ago

I'm gonna start downvoting obviously pirated content. In particular there's quite a bit of pirated porn in the NSFW group that I'll be regularly and consistently downvoting to oblivion. If you don't want to be downvoted, please stop posting it and remove what you've already posted (unless the payout for the post has already happened).

There are plenty of other places where you can post pirated material. IMHO, Steemit shouldn't be one of them.

100% agree. Thanks for doing this.

Downvote , Flag , hit them with the ban hammer . I'm one to think that Steemit needs more moderation and a few police officers

No need. Appropriate flagging by the community is a better solution.

Thank you Sean-king, it drives me crazy how much obvious copy-pasted porn there is. These people make more $ doing it than almost every other newcomer working hard.
Best 100% up-vote I've spent all week.

Downvote that shit!... there should be only original NSFW content, that would make it very interesting...

Agreed 1000% -- I don't care about piracy it and of itself because I don't believe in the legitimacy or practicality of intellectual property outside of a voluntary protocol like a blockchain.

My problem is the spamminess and unoriginality of it all. Thankfully, the beauty of this place is the upvotes actually do something and it's nearly impossible to really game the steem system. Downvote those fakers man!

people game the system with bots, and buying whale votes. Whats to stop me from creating two accounts, deposit
$100,000 Steam power in both and just upvoting each other 100%? This is one issue I have with steem. I think it can be gamed, is being gamed, and will continue to be gamed.

What can stop you is public transactions and users noticing it and using their flags to defend the reward pool from obvious gaming of it.

This comment from bearbear613 deserves 100 upvotes.... couldn't of said it better man.

How to make $117.00 in one click ! Sounds like some internet scam? No, just ask @sean-king for his vote and see what 157,987.383 STEEM POWER can do!

Jokes aside, I do agree with @sean-king on this one. I know the whole idea of STEEMIT is to not be censored, or restrictive, but at least the content should be created not copied.

sean-king upvoting only valuable content or comments :D

·

Damn, I thought @sean-king was a crypto-ATM :( DANNNNNG!

·
·

Ok, so, now I'm confused. @sean-king IS or IS NOT a CryptoATM. This is hard.

He is when he uses 100% power on his votes.

What must it take to get a legendary 100% vote

You have to wear a t-shirt that says I love steemit and go die in the middle of town square and thus be sacrificed for the cause of steemit to get that legendary upvote..

I actually find whales to be very, very conservative about their votes. I guess it's just human nature, after all "greed is good" - Gordon Gekko

Please prove your vote is $100+ @sean-king on this comment...

No, he will prove on this comment, just because he loves the wolf

Absolutely! Whilst I am not against porn, I don't see the point in just pasting it all over Steemit. People like @sean-king put some fantastic artful nude posts up, and they are great to look at due to the thought of composition, and of course the lovely ladies ehem.

It's a good feeling when you are appreciated by someone like Sean and he plonks a huge upvote on to your content and then you see crap posts that make someone $100's or maybe $1000's a week just for spamming copied content.

Plagiarism is plagiarism, however you look at it and we should all work together, minnows and whales alike to stomp it out and keep our beloved Steemit free of Spam.

I've been doing this already. Its good to see someone shares the same sentiment.

Thank you for finnally pointing this out , people were making money off of picture that should belong on other sights , it really just shows how many horny men are on the sight , they can move on and then we will see the best of the community, thanks for your time

IMO when the feed is flooded with spammy content that has enticing headlines It's harder for people posting original content to get clicks.

I posted something the other day and within seconds it was way down the list beneath a bunch of old YouTube videos people are re-posting.

It's like you're competing with years old You Tube Videos.

Thanks for noticing this :o)

I completely agree with this. I have commented on at least one post indicating that use of Suicide Girls content requires permission and attribution.

People work to produce their work, they should be paid for it. If you make money (Steem) for other people's efforts, you should pay them.

Whenever I use content from the web, I look for "public domain", request permission (where applicable), and directly cite my source. If any content creator asks me to remove their content, I happily edit it out of my post. This should be a general rule of etiquette when posting anywhere.

It should be done for the betterment of community.

The plagiarists get butthurt when called out. 'Tis amusing to see. They think Steemit is their cash cow to be milked however they want. I would upvote this, but I found it too late and upvotes are barred in the last few hours.

Eggzackly...I don't mind if it's original but just posting random pics from the internet doesn't enhance the value of this community.

ok well that was sad..you downvoted one of MY nsfw posts..none of which are plagiarized or spammy.... was it just cos its a video on pornhub?[i have my own pornhub channel] i thought every one would enjoy my princes lay ya fap video that i made for may 4th...

·

Thank you for correcting me. I removed the flag and gave you a small upvote as an apology. I will try not to make the same mistake again. If I do, please correct me.

·

<3 thanks man

I havd to say, my boobs here are my boobs. I hope you like them. :)

I couldn't open this the other day because of the NSFW (didn't want to risk it) but now that I am able to I'll say: GOOD!!

Steemit has always had a culture of original content, and I'd really like that to continue. I report / downvote plagiarism in my areas of interest when I come across it, and I hope everyone else will do it too.

You need to check all that porn and make sure it's not pirated! :)

·

Take a few lifetimes to through that but fun as hell!

I agree! But, I pity you for the amount of d-cks you will have to see during this process.

·

HAHAAHAHAH!! :D

thank you <3 as a performer of the adult industry..this make me smile. pirated content in nsfw is super upsetting to me. it makes me cringe watching people make tons on posts that they just copy pasted from someone elses hard fucking work. upvote!

·

hard fucking work haha

·
·

ya u like what i did there?!.....xD

·
·
·

fucking slick.

Thanks. Resteemed as I agree that we should be promoting original content.

I see alot of people who I assume take articles in their native language, and then Google translate it into english so that the Cheetah bot don't catch them plagiarizing.

Some guy posted an interesting article that I commented on since it's related to my cultural heritage, and when we started conversing, the guys native was CLEARLY not english and he copied and pasted the content from somewhere else. I looked at his profile and he's posting 10 articles an hour using Google translate.

Yeah I can see where you are at with this one.

When I started here, I posted some content that I thought was sharing but I quickly learned that this place ain't Facebook and that you can't just copy content and paste it in with a link to the credit.

I think some other minnows who are doing just that now, it took a little time to get used to this place and I'm always looking for free content that I am allowed to post up, such as images for my blogs but unless these folk who are posting porn are involved with the creation of the content then it's basically making money from someone else's creation.

People will hopefully learn quite quickly that this isn't the place to be earning from someone else's hard work...excuse the pun! :D

Thank you! I podcast with a woman who makes her living fulfilling people's fantasies in video performances. She's invested a lot into lighting, sets, and audio/video equipment. She's quite good at what she does, and she deserves to be fairly compensated for her work. That's why it's behind a paywall in the first place. It still manages to show up on free sites without her consent, unfortunately.

From what I understand, this platform does not support plagiarism. Thanks for enforcing that standard.

Great work, glad someone is stepping up as an enforcer! Steemit is for original content like @azzurra92 :)

nice one @seak-king
you doing a greatjob. if not for your likes, some porn promoters will invade this community which should center more of thought provoking and educational plus aesthetic contents of value to both young minds and old, gentleman and ladies...even men and women of faith...
Pls downvote, cancel payout, delet and block them asap..let the cleaning begin... you just won my up vote...

Totally agree, Steemit shouldn't be on of those places where you can post pirated material! Do it man!

the king of the king :)

I don't know if we also are allowed to use a gif or a photo from an actor for example.
Since steemit pays the articles/comments i think the ONLY think that we allowed for sure to use is CC0 licence related things.

Agreed! I appreciate you coming out with this.

@sean-king , do you upvote your post 100%, I saw @kpine is above of you?

Glad to see this post. People like that should be down voted into oblivion. I am new and just learning the etiquette. Thanks Sean!

Great work sean-king!

How do you down vote

·

Tap the flag at the top right of any post.

Great, this is much needed!

Seriously, I'm glad someone came out and said this. The same gifs they're using are some of the same ones that were shuffled around 15 years ago. Those girls are middle aged suburban housewives now, with kids, and probably lucky husbands.

They copy from 4chan and post it here for upvotes. Swing that downvote hammer hard my friend! I'm right there with ya.

Full support!

Thank you very much for helping to keep steem clean and original ;)

wtf :O

Good, everyone should do that!

yup easy make money, just copy paste :(

@sean-king. I think this is a great idea. Pirated material would simply drown out any original material.

I would like to make clear that I've referred to the pictures I've made, and that otherwise they are free to use from pixabay.

It might also be nice if you were to post a warning to first time offenders. rather than immediately flagging them.

Upvoted and wholeheartedly resteemed.

Danke schoen @sean-king
At least be original throwing around those penises. 😜
Never been into that stuff but copy/paste is lame

Yeah I didn't come to Steem for randomshite I can find anywhere! I want original nsfw content :)

Yes I do agree also. We should all do this to keep steemit clean of spam.

You are right btw. I am trying to be original from now :p

Well said im on board with the down voting

Curation and user self organizing at its best!

100% upvote. The whole site is getting overrun with pirated content, especially in NSFW.

Love to see this and I totally agree I just wish I had the steem power your have to have to make an impact and you have my support for your original content as well, you're in my autovoter!
