Last night while I was doing the usual I noticed an exploit of the @promoted bot. @hamo86 is spamming posts and promoting them by using the promote feature. He is making post's with a picture of graph and some generic heading to avoid detection.
The exact method that is being used is.
- Make a blog post, insert any random crap.
- Promote said post by 0.001 sbd
- Get the @promoted minimum vote which is $0.05
- repeat repeat repeat
I have brought this up with quite a few steemians but it appears that no one cares.
Am I insane for pointing out something that is potentially creating 10,000 spam post's a day?
I think this is an actual issue with an easy fix.
Just increase the minimum vote to 0.01 sbd for now and monitor the situation.
So guys am I bring ridiculous in thinking that this is a legitimate issue?
