The nicest thing someone had done for me on Steemit

Today I woke up to one of the best surprises in my life.

I had been running for witness for a while, and yesterday I've made it to the outskirts of top 19, a 21st slot to be more precise. One of the major dilemmas for new witnesses is, that for them to become a witness, an existing witness must necessarily lose their spot.

To my surprise, @liondani had unvoted himself, and voted me in, essentially giving me his witness slot.

@liondani, I cannot even begin to describe the joy and gratefulness you've brought me.
Thank you.

I hope that our paths cross in the future, and I get the privilege of meeting you.

I've seen many examples of @liondani's generosity previously, but this tops it. He is an incredibly generous man. Well done @liondani. Proud to call you a brother in Christ. :)

The creator declined payout, and you flag it anyway? Uncool.

Its an automated bot, and fairly new at that. I'm sure he will add support for decline payout, as well as proxies to null in HF17.

Hi @smooth - if it is an easy tweak to make, you might as well exclude 'no payout' posts to save your voting power.
