View this post on Hive: The First Rule of Steemit...


I've moved to Hive, along with most other people, following Justin Sun's takeover of Steem in the Spring of 2020. I believe hive is a lot more decentralised than Steem!

Sort:  

Rape is sexual violence, most often perpetuated against women and nearly always perpetuated by men. It's about gendered power relationships. It's unfortunate that it is being used and normalised in this context. The activity that is taking place is opportunistic, exploitative, although some might argue that it's perfectly legitimate entrepreneurialism, but it's not rape.

Pillage would be a more appropriate word anyway.

Yes, although even that has connotations of violence. I notice that someone was using plunder earlier today.

YES,I should have parenthesized that word!

Interesting feature. I could see embedding a 'submit to resteemable' button for this in a @blockpress theme's post view.

Yes, it's really great to read all articles related to Steemit, because any new analysis, updates or forecast of Steem Economy really increase that engagement because we all are Steemians, but yes sometimes people add the Steemit tag forcefully because, in my opinion they possibly think that will get that extra exposure but actually they abusing the Tag system. Thanks for sharing this post with us and wishing you an great day. Stay blessed. 🙂

After taking a break, I came to the conclusion that I'm only here for the conversation. There are a lot of wonderful people here carrying on fantastic discussion across all possible subjects. I like it more than Reddit. There is something about being attached to an identity with financial value attached that creates a different atmosphere here (for me, at least).

But the financial rewards are not a factor at all (for me). In its present state, making significant income off of Steemit works for folks who bought or mined STEEM early on. New people are simply not able to bootstrap from zero. While they can sharpen their writing and conversational skills, there are far better options to learn and get paid.

I think we should enjoy the feeling of magic and possibility about the place while it exists. We should continue the healthy debates and do our best to cultivate a stable platform for future participants. And yet, we have no idea how the future actually unfolds. It's quite possible that the next 1,000,000 users want to do something completely different -- or that we all pack up and move to a newer, better platform that levels the playing field.

Who knows?

I'll just enjoy this while it lasts.

I here what you're saying.... this place is evolving, or regressing, or both at the same time, away from the little guy being able to earn a decent even second income, unless he upvotes relentlessly.

But there are a lot of alt. views on here.

I'm fortunate in that I'm treating this as a sort of 'participatory research exercise'... it's a fascinating platform to be involved in from a sociological perspective... I almost feel like I'm going a rogue PhD (at least psuedo PhD) on blockchain social media.

Sorry I took so long to reply!

we might all disagree on many of the ‘issues’ here on steemit, but let’s not forget that the fact that there is so much passionate disagreement is actually a sign of its hugely disruptive potential.

You made a lot of sense. I am for anything that will bring equity, a level plain field for all.

Thank you for good content sir.

a lot of people don't just question the architecture of Youtube or Facebook simply because they aren't there to make money. When there are external incentives involved, the human behavior will alter to maximize self-benefits. Steemit isn't like Facebook and Youtube that's why it's a central topic for anyone who's invested in the platform.

Yes but we re not all here necessarily just to 'make money,' but to be successful in our own right, and in as honest way we can that works in harmony with a community, and a long-term platform.

Its actually the first two rules.

Steemit really really likes talking about Steemit.

I have one statement: no pain, no gain.
Whatever happens in Steemit, Steemit always has a strong appeal.

Peace!
