RE: Decentralization, Accountability and the Use of Steem Bots
There are two issues at play here. First, a group of early Steemians were able to become whales and have immense control. Second, Steem allowsncnplete anonymity and people behave differently when they are known vs anonymous. This, an anonymous whale who may not have high-functioning social skills may behave in ways that are detrimental to the community which will have a difficult time helping them learn to play nice in the sandbox.
