I have seen many posts here on Steemit that are warning New Steemians against spamming. I'm new to Steemit and just joined in July. I know the general rules against spamming, however it would really help all of us minnows if a few of the Steem Whales would give us clear guidelines on Steemit etiquette. I know that I have commented on many posts and felt that my comments were thoughtful and genuine, having said that, I have on a few occasions asked the author of the post to follow me. I don't do this on every comment but some people that I find interesting or could benefit from my post I ask them to follow me to create the friendship or relationship. I'm not sure if this is considered spamming? I do agree with putting tighter community controls on people who use bots to spam comments and for upvotes and I have read some of the debates about upvoting your own comments, both the pros and cons, I strongly feel that we that are here now, all must agree on acceptable tribe behavior for all Stemmians.
