We are Making Good ProgresssteemCreated with Sketch.

Dear Steemians,

We listened to the Steem community, and we always will. While we do not agree, nor obviously support the recent hardfork, we continue to find ways to show our commitment to developing our Steem ecosystem with the support of our great community. We love Steem and we are always supporting a united community since we believe that united we stand, divided we fall.

Steemit will always stay.

And yes, we did add the ability to hide posts that violated the terms of condition of steemit.com, those posts are still existing in the blockchain but not showing in steemit.com website, as we need to support our content and the community's content. Would any commercial website support a post that encourages all users to migrate to another one? No. That would not be in the best interest of the community and the Steem ecosystem.

All this being said, we are fully committed to supporting witnesses that vow to protect all Steemians’ stake. We will support any witnesses who publicly announce their promise to secure accounts, as well as update to SF 22.5.

Examples of these actions include the following community members which we have already voted for.




@zzan.witness: https://steemit.com/witness-category/@zzan.witnesses/make-an-entrance-steemzzan-witness

@Future.witness: https://steemit.com/delegations/@steemba/open-letter-from-dapps-to-justinsuntron

@steemhunt: https://steemit.com/delegations/@steemba/open-letter-from-dapps-to-justinsuntron

We also withdrew some of the vote of 11 temporary witnesses out of 20 and power downed @happylife123 and @onestepaday and will continue to do so with all temporary witnesses. Eventually we will put governance back in the hands of the community as soon as possible.

We will also be delegating Steem Power back to some of the projects decided on by the Delegation Committee and we will have a more frequent and transparent process of delegation. We would like to reassure you that we are committed to Steem for the long-term and plan to bring more value to Steem than even before. Behind the scenes, please be assured that we are working around the clock to make this a success, and create a path forward by returning governance back to normal within the next two weeks. We have a plethora of resources and a world class team that is dedicated to working on Steem and making it become the best decentralized social network we all envision.

The Steemit Team


Congratulations. You just permanently deleted the main value proposition Steemit has promoted for years. What happened to proof of brain?! Since the beginning, you've promoted the idea of allowing community and stakeholders to collectively judge what content should be Trending and receive attention. The accounts and posts you've now blocked received overwhelming support from the community, and you just made the decision to ignore community consensus and remove it. Thus deleting everything Steemit has worked to promote and found its future ideas for SMTs on.

And what's the idea of pointing to what a commercial website would do? The whole point of Steem/Steemit has always been to provide something different. It's funny to see the new owners themselves state what others have said as a joke, that you may as well not use a blockchain at all and just run a normal database if you're just going to ignore what's on the blockchain whenever it suits you.

it's always been proof of money-for brain ... if i have 20k sp and you get 1000 votes by people with a brain and 15 sp each

then my vote counts, dont be naive

I actually agree with that. But it's Steemit Inc themselves that defined the term proof of brain and made it the centerpiece of their product and the foundation for SMTs which was supposed to be their main focus.

So they're still undermining everything they've claimed to believe is a good product.

Communist Chinese bought it. Bye bye freedom of speech.

Hope they can make thing differently from now..wait and see for now..


Interesting... Facebook does not hide posts about it's competitors.
many other important and relevant social media do not hide form competition.

Sorry, but CENSORSHIP is not Decentralized.

Can you show me where in the TERMS hide posts that violated the terms of condition of steemit.com

it's in term 14.b.a where it says "you shall not compete with Steemit or we will block you and hate you forever and delete your posts"

Such drama, you've earned a DRAMA!

To view or trade DRAMA go to steem-engine.com.

I tender my resignation from the delegation committee. I don't support the censorship, nor the sock puppets, nor the human puppets, nor the steemit stake voting, nor the name calling, nor the lies to exchanges, nor the lies from the exchanges, nor really any action taken by steemit/justin/tron since Feb 14. Another sad day for Steem. Your only courses of action seem to be bribes, insults, censorship, and failure.

Not to change the subject, nor diminish respect for your action demonstrating your adherence to sound and necessary principle by your resignation, but I have yet to see what Steem-Engine must do, or stakeholders must, to migrate to Hive. Could you please address this matter in a timely way?


Please remove free downvotes, I want to turn on my bidbot and get back to vote selling business. Let's make Steem great again!

Don't forget about instant power downs to make all that cash flow straight into your pocket. ;)

I’m on board with instant power downs now... Gotta trade for Hive!

That's great idea!

Yes, why not! Let’s have at least some fun on this wastedump!

Think your comment may have been ironic. I had intended to downvote it otherwise but @ngc is making it difficult to view the nuance in your responses to know either way. If it was indeed or ironic, I'll gladly remove if I had flagged (not sure as I see the upvote visible on esteem. Things are all kinds of wonky).

But yeah this place is going to shit quickly if vote selling resurfaces. Nothing says race to the bottom faster than collusive voting IMHO.

Would any commercial website support a post that encourages all users to migrate to another one? No.

Yes, lots of websites have allowed this. Digg.com. Reddit.com. Myspace.com. Friendster, among many others.

This. Hiding such posts is only a sign of real weakness. Steemians who still care about what have been the core values of Steem for ages should 1. Do their own posts to highlight what's going on, and 2. make sure it gets seen.

It's not just about censorship resistance. It's about community and user co-ownership and proof of brain as the source for content discovery and ranking...

Probably any respectable website.

Great to live in denial.

I feel so safe knowing that commander Sun Yuchen is censoring Steemit rivals.


In two weeks time there will be no community left... let alone still willing to support your new puppet government, it is no improvement over the sock puppets and shows your continued ignorance of what decentralisation means.

Hiding the posts on steemit.com cracks most steemians up, as hardly anyone uses your shitty front end - it just confirms yet another massive issue - censorship is now endorsed by steemit on the steem blockchain, that goes against the fundamental principals most if not all steemians hold dear.... lmao you just encouraged those still holding out hope to jump ship with the rest of us, not to mention the free publicity you're sending our way.

The secret soft fork was not voted on fully and was against the DPOS consensus model full-stop. Stop Dev worshipping, as freezing someone's stake is a disgrace. The only thing they were protecting was there ego's and pockets.
The old witnesses have let us all down, not to mention they seem to lie quite alot as well.
I'm glad they are out the way so Steemit can maybe move on and improve. Peace!

you do realize that censoring what appears on steemit.com first guarantees those who remain will STOP using steemit.com and second will in fact MOVE to the other chain exclusively

NOT A GOOD MOVE for the community. For any community.

That's their intention. If they censor someone, you can be sure that they don't want them to continue using the site.

Mainly the content has been to shill and promote Steem Classic | HIVE. I'm sure they would have let that happen if the shoes were on the other foot? The high-ground (I know what is best because I say so) police bot would have been straight on it, especially if it even gets a chance to hit the trending page. Hippocrates.

Fuck you.

Double speak authoritarian centralist bullshit.

I honestly thought 1984 didn't apply in the online world, then you took over Steem. What a total fuck up you've made of it.

Best of luck censoring these comments.

Something else for you to react to in a knee-jerk way.
