Nah - they've just develop in a different form and carry on.

They might go back to curation trails, which would make them less money, but would be better for the platform.

The price of the steem dollar also plays a part. When it rises people use the bid-bots because they get more for their money.

We're seeing that right now - bid-bots are going crazy since last Friday.

I'm seeing lots of new names on the front page though, with good articles. Lets see how this plays out.

It's gone back to same old names again...

The flagging will have to go on for months before they give up...

Well, a glance at the front page shows that they are flagging away - it has to be costing some bot-owners money

The front page seems to have changed a bit - no more jerry what's his name. But I can still see evidence of flagging.
