An Important P.S.A. For Steemians by @thedamus

in steemsilvergold •  4 months ago

Hi Friends,

I am angry, i feel victimized, and though i should be in a foul fucking mood, i feel surprisingly calm, clear, and ready to bust out some information that could potentially affect us all.

@grumpycat is an imposter, and a vile hypocrit that needs to be stopped.

Say hello to everybody’s least favourite meme of all time:

B1F22237-757F-4A9C-BD06-08714DEE5C28.jpeg

You can see that @grumpycat — or should it be gimpycat? Bah ha ha i slay me! — joined Steemit in November and has already achieved a 62 rep — Wow! I wonder how that happened? With just 67 posts and following only 8 other steemians — what a trooper! — something seems wildly distorted.

If you said “upvoting services” then you are correct, and there is no prize for that here and now. I too use upvote bots to my benefit, and i have also “sicked ‘em” on my friend’s posts and on my Steemit crush Stax 😍😍😍

As a point of decency i never go back and upvote a post that’s just about to pay out. I find that tacky according to my steemit sensibilities. And further, i am usually too busy crafting and loving and laughing over a new post anyway, so that posts from last week have already been read over, edited, and enjoyed.

So yesterday i wrote a post called “Junk Smash” where i cracked a few jokes, showed off some killer old silver i just purchased — old Canadian dollars as well as a roll of US constitutional “junk” — AND, i wrote a silly poem that celebrated all the fun we’re all having playing games and pouring silver and holding contests and talking like pirates and all kinds of other shit too.

Here it is:

https://steemit.com/steemsilvergold/@thedamus/junk-smash

Now when you go there you will see this:

2D86CF44-4DF9-4F0A-B8F7-C5C53560BE3A.jpeg

It’s @grumpycat admonishing me for using upvote bots — and explicitly: sneaky-ninja, buildawhale and appreciator. The reasons given were that “some” people were using these bots to upvote their posts in the last day/hours of it maturing. Check it out! Somewhat confusingly it says: “you or someone else” — well fuck, if it was someone else then what are you talking to me for!!!?

FC8AC422-7A34-41B7-99AA-6FFF19524386.jpeg

But that is the least of it. Check out who @grumpycat is using to up vote his own posts to up over $1,600

F0DEC18B-A419-4349-BA43-9F5D838158C5.jpeg

Huh...? Whah...? What kind of bullshit is this? I went off in my own comments, so i’ll try to keep this short... But seriously, what the fuck! @grumpycat is a fucking hypocritical menace that just somehow wiped out 2/3 of my payout that i invested real money into. Meanwhile, this 3month noob is cashing in on $1,600 posts, withdrawing beaucoup and being a supreme cocksucker.

I agree that upvoting old posts is gauche, and i don’t do it. But i also don’t fuck with anyone, and to the contrary, i am generous to the point of wiping out my VP — cause i enjoy being a cool guy.

So congratulation(s) you ignorant fuck that can’t even spell! — you are the deserving winner of my first flag — i’d flag you twice if i could you fucking stump!

I am not sure why i was singled out and bitch-slapped by the biggest bitch i have yet come across here on Steemit. But i do know this: you reap what you sow — so i have all the faith in the world that going forward my happy crops will not even know what a grumpycat is, in time...

@grumpycat — you are an embarrassment and a hypocritical putz-muncher. You are a 3 month old grumpybaby with a huge hammer and zero finesse. Why don’t you pull that silver spoon out of your ass and tell whomever is your poppa to go and get an honest job.

Thank you for listening. I hope i have provided reasonable evidence and clarity for my position.

I am:

C4BE42E5-3C93-4943-A1B9-1F66DA71A90D.jpeg

And i’m here for a good time AND a long time!

Be good to one another friends — it truly is the better way.

Fuck off

Anyone know a guy with a 3$ mill USD troll account who flags people with thousands of dollars on STEEMIT and thinks they are a site admin playing the role of a shady cat?

Imagine its Friday night any week and grumpy cat is at his house, no fam, no friends, all that corn and he is flagging noobs for nothing, ya I just wrote the grumpy cat psychological evaluation.

I bet he fingers bots he does not like so he can push his own bots and corner the market on vote buying like a real champ!

what a drag it is getting old...

·

I let people use non-grumpycompliant bots to pilfer the reward with shit content.
Maybe my content was just not good enough for self flagellation.

·

Go find some coyote’s or play in traffic or something...

·

·
·
·
·

Who the fuck are you to “let” anyone do anything? You’re a 3month old greed-bot with a stupid name that can’t even be bothered to spell words correctly...

Go suck a dink @gimpycat! And please stay away from my pro-file. You are a rank amateur and an offensive meme, and little else...

You'll be even more pissed off when you realize Grumpy sock-puppet self-votes himself sometimes upwards of $10,000 USD per day (after SBD price conversion):

Abuse 3.png

It's cool though, everybody is doing it. Literally.

Ned Self Vote 6k.png

Don't bother trying to fix anything. Keep your head down, post for maximum ROI, or check the fuck out of this toxic dumpster fire they call a community.

PS - You got a resteem from me on this one, as you saved me from having to make this post myself.

·

The platform withers as those that would have sustained a viable one are disengaging day by day knowing that rampant abuse of its inherently flawed rewards structure continues unabated.

Steemit Inc and its CEO are asleep at the wheels, with no apparent commitment to resolving any of the site's evidently systemic problems.

The disengagement is happening just as one would expect it to. Even the steem white paper echoes the unendurable nature of the present situation: "Any imbalance in the give and take within a community is unsustainable. Eventually the givers grow tired of supporting the takers and disengage from the community."

·
·

What's to stop the community from hard forking Steem and making a our own site?

·
·
·

I don't think that would be worthwhile to be honest. The steem blockchain has potential. It just needs to be extracted from underneath the layers of disarray that have obscured that potential.

This site is currently the face of the steem blockchain. It should not be in beta nearly two years after its inception. The roll out of SMTs may perhaps steer the market's attention elsewhere, and that may ultimately be Steemit Inc's intent in focusing on SMTs instead of addressing the foundational issues of this platform.

If that is the case then it is unfortunate, because a house can't be held up on a weak foundation. Steemit can be better than it is today, in my view. And SMTs and everything else built on the blockchain would be better for it. Even Dan Larimer has implied that in its present iteration the blockchain's rewards distribution mechanism isn't sustainable.

·
·
·

Well there was a hard fork called golos.io

·
·

Very well said. Almost poetic in composition.

I hope they are right about SMTs. Otherwise...

·
·
·

Thank you. Yes, I hope they are right too. Any deep pocketed crypto market enthusiasts will take one glance at Steemit and sees that it's in beta mode after nearly two years of being online and just shakes their heads. Perhaps the market at large has been so starved of expectations from the company that the promise of something innovative via SMTs is enough to have sparked the current rally we are seeing in steem. Who knows.

I am personally astonished that Steemit Inc has not marketed the passive cashflow opportunities presented with the SP delegation feature. I just recently discovered this functionality of the blockchain and it's the only reason I haven't liquidated my speculative holding. If I understand it correctly, it's essentially like the concept of proof of stake.

Many contend that it's the very promise of this feature that sparked ethereum's rally to second ranking in global market cap. And here we have something similar to it today with the steem blockchain and there is no sustained and clearly articulated marketing push to explain it from Steemit Inc.

But hey, Money Talks right - let's just plaster that on the home page. Ugh.

·
·

Well said, and it's sad to see so many leaving on account of the abuse. Perfect quote you cited, also!

·
·
·

Thanks! I'd like to see the blockchain succeed. I see Utopian, Dtube, and other apps being built on it and am relieved that at least some innovation is occurring. But it is a shame that Steemit has been disregarded in all of that. I'll stick around for the commentary. The original posts, not so much. Not until things are turned around for the better around here.

·

@lexiconical on point, as always. Love you lex! Love this comment, and I LOVE this whole post but I HATE they both need to exist...

Check the fuck out, I consider it every day. And I can't tear my eyes off it anyway.

·
·

"Check the fuck out, I consider it every day."

I don't think anyone could blame you.

·
·
·

And you know most of the reasons why, so I truly appreciate the sentiment.

·

Thanks lexi!

·

The guy is a greedy troll. He just up voted himself here again and one of his up votes are worth more than $100, of course he's going to continue trolling, he's gaming the system. Once everyone catches up and turn into a whale I'd hate to be him. He's very disliked by many.

Wow what a fucking jackoff! I saw an older Post he was talking about policing Steemit and he's one of the biggest abusers yet. It's hard for me to fathom stuff like this when I see it here, what a loser.. it makes me wonder what kinda pathetic life these skidmarks have in the real world? Keep doing you man, I'm glad to see you're gonna get back your losses with this post because you're one of the best swimmers I've met on this site. I'ma resteem this aswell 😎

·

Thanks for support GA, it means a lot to me! — gimpycat will get what he deserves...we all will.

👊😎

Whoa whoa whoa! What the fuck homie. All you have done on steemit is spread the love around. Dunno who these Social Justice Steemit Warriors are but keep your head up and keep calling it like you see it.

Karma will take care of the rest.

·
·
·

great article! Missed it the first time so I'm very glad you shared the link here. I always feel a little guilt at up-voting my own posts, but without a huge following or love from whales/dolphins/etc, I'd earn nothing. Us little guys can pour a ton of effort into a post and unless you do something to promote it - we see nothing. I understand that all social media is about consistency, but until this platform can replace my income, it will remain a side-hobby. I wish that weren't true, but that's the way it is. What this all means to me is that presently I post assuming almost no one of consequence will upvote me. That means that as in life, the only one who is ever going to truly help you is yourself... so I keep slowly stacking up Steem so that my own up-vote can mean something. I've tried loyalty to certain communities, but that is hit or miss. In the end, I've concluded it is best to invest in yourself, up-vote good content and expect nothing from anyone. You are only disappointed if your expectations are too high. Hopefully, the watchers begin to understand that unmet expectations result in reduced engagement.

Now, as for the matter at hand - When was it ever okay to punish the users of a service instead of the offending service itself? Are you truly trying to change behavior by punishing good Steemians? There must a better way. Ask yourself if you would take these actions with a small wallet. If the answer is no, then you are a cowardly bully. F this platform man - that would make you a $hitty human all around. I am no one here, but right is right and wrong is wrong. I respect people who try to fix what is wrong, but I cannot figure out how this is the right approach. Think a little further downstream!

·
·
·

Thanks nofiat! Stay gold man

·
·

Indeed I did.

It just saps my creative energy knowing this bullshit drama is hanging over every post I make or read. Life goes on but, fuck, people can be dicks!

·

Thanks brother

·
·

agreed... fuck'em and do you

thats BS man - i went and upvoted the other post as well

Thanks kiwi!

You’re a strong arm at the right time 👊😎

Nicely done

·

I did too. First full week on steemit and already drama!

·
·

Hi mimaroo! Thx for stopping by... it’s usually fun n games n precious metals ‘round here. You picked an exciting week!
Welcome.

and, Cheers! from @thedamus

Damn bro. Sorry about that shit. I knew it was only a matter is time before that ass hole hit someone I knew. Fuck him and you will still get my vote 💯even if it cant counter his. #stopsteemitbullies

·

Thx shippie! I really appreciate the support!

@grumpycat has bid with the following voting bots in the last 11 days:

The above 3 are declared by @grumpycat as 6th day voting bots that abuse the system. Yet, @grumpycat hypocritically uses them. Hmmmmmm...

·

Also, what’s going on with@uradick? He has posted once but claimed mega rewards! How the fuck does one claim rewards when there is zero activity on account?

Something’s rotten in the state of Denmark!

·
·

If you wait a half hour or so after someone posts something, then vote on it, you will get 25% of their vote as curation rewards. That means it's possible to make money just upvoting other people's stuff. When I say you, I mean all upvoters. If there's a lot of upvoters, you have to share the curation rewards with all of them. Posts with high rewards and few upvotes will yield the highest curation rewards.

·
·
·

I think this may be one reason why everyone has their panties in a twist over 6th day voting bots. If you upvote just in time for payout without giving others time to curate, you get all the curation rewards.

I don't think that people get you can still deny others curation rewards on a post you just created. For example, if you time your voting such that the vote happens immediately after you post, you also get all the rewards. I think the window is about 3 minutes.

Scenario

  1. Bob submits bidding on a post that doesn't exist.
  2. Bob watches http://steembottracker.com and waits for the voting bot to enter its voting phase
  3. Bob submits his post
  4. Within minutes the bot updates Bob's post
  5. Bob gets all the curation rewards.

I'm not saying anyone should do this. I have been experimenting with voting bots, but I haven't tried this yet to see if it works. I probably will try it at some point just to find out. That way I can speak on it definitively.

If my theory is correct, the 3.5 day max age rule isn't enough.

·
·
·
·

This is absolutely incorrect information.

·
·
·
·
·

LOL. You can't just drop a bomb like that and not say why.

·
·
·

It also makes those self-voters extra bad guys because they vote themselves immediately after posting which denies curation with anyone that upvotes with them.

·
·
·
·

So basically there are a few really smart and really selfish cocksuckers out there with massive SP and they’re all circle-jerking themselves for maximum ROI — everyone else be damned.

The moon and the truth cannot hide for long.

Thx for clarification.

·

makes sense. threaten downvotes to those that use the service. less use allowing him to get profitable votes from the services.

·

Fuckin’ Ass-hats

You can’t make this stuff up!

This great post has been included in 📌'Notes'📓- Issue #13!

I had a problem with these bots a few months back made it public. There was more swearing my post, lol.

They are pure spam bots Set up to make money by screwing members over. I think the community does a good job of filtering out the crap and no need for these bots.

·
·
·

Where’d my $200 go?

Lol

😳😁🤣 — the funny thing is how shortsighted some of these ass-hats are...

Rock on bro!

good on you for this one man! Way to show balls.

He freaking upvoted you on this. wtf? lol

Anyway bro, I changed my normal vote to 100% on this one. Keep fighting the good fight.

·

Thanks Michael! I really do appreciate the support. Keep on being awesome!

Btw, i tore a page out of YOUR playbook for this one — i’m still laughing at your unexpected rant from a couple months ago!!!

GrumpyCat - ABUSER OF REWARD POOL

(

GrumpyCat EXPOSED As A HYPOCRITE

My working theory is that @grumpycat is a secondary account for one of the major voting bots in an attempt to eliminate the competition.

·

I highly doubt that but a few of us think we know who it is.

·
·

So, any chance of going public with that? I know that will put you all waaaaaaaaay out there, but I think it's vital that the community know. I'm not saying out someone without solid proof, though. That wouldn't help matters at all.

·
·
·

I'm about 85% sure, and if I am wrong it would be irresponsible.

·
·
·
·

Most watching the match know with 100% certainty who it is. That's what makes all of this...smh...lol...hilarious...and, simultaneously, very sad on so many levels.

It's kinda' like the Q-Anon of Steemit...

It forces me to accept that all of the good in life is an illusion on some grand level of facades. It makes it undeniable, that "playahs gonna play". There's corruption in everything. It's just a bit more painful when there's a face to it.

Peace.

·
·

Probably more than a few us buddy. ;)

·
·
·

Dude. Do some upvote educating.

·
·
·
·

Well, I do have a broadcasting network to put educational info out on, as well as the blog here, but what exactly are you suggesting, as I don't really follow in context.

·
·
·
·
·

Seriously? You think I don't know who you are, what you have, what you do? Maybe I did underestimate though. Maybe it is too hard to sit in the middle of a storm and detect misinformation. I wish you the best of luck.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Would you please add what you actually mean to what you are saying, because there is like a ton of context missing, and we're not sure what you are talking about here. What does upvote educating and what I do have to do with this thread? For that matter what does upvote educating actually mean?

·
·

I have no idea why, but it makes me happy to know that there is a group so closely knit that they easily know who each other is even incognito.

·

That's my theory, too. He's like the mafia, selling "protection" services, and if you don't buy in, you'll need protection.

This asshole needs to go outside and play hide and go fuck himself! I am enjoying this platform and it’s a fun community of stackers and like minded people. Not sure why some people always need to be posing in the kool-aid!👍🏼🍺🥓

·

Thx bro! You made me chuckle with that one!!!
😁😂🤣🤣🤣

...”hide and go fuck himself” — ba ha ha ha HAAAA!!!

Grumpycat does bad to everyone ((((

Whoa,whoa, stop the fucking bus. What's this cats problem. You should ask him who @checkthisout is. Might be is partner in crime. You know @thedamus has never bothered anyone, always helps out and is an all around awesome addition to steemit. I noticed that @grumpycat is currently powering down, so is he really that damn concerned about steemit. He is pulling 45,000 steem off of the platform a week with his power down.I am with you bud.

·

Thanks Ray!

Full gimp-cat flagging switch is turned on and bristling!

My full power is down below 20% but i’ll give ya all i got!

·
·

You're so nice for commenting on this post. For that, I gave you a vote!

·
·
·

Thank you Obi Wan...!

·

@checkthis out joined in November too. Has a 67 rep and has posted 234 times, as well, both accounts are following only 8 others. I would bet the douchebag is on that very small list. The last being a resteem of gimpycat where they warn people away from upvote bots — whomever is behind this need to be outed

should change the name from grumpycat to grumpycunt.

Ya, total d-bag. Have to take it to the mic. Needs to be said.

·

Yo E, thx man! This whole fucking thing was absurd... but i’m super proud of the pack for all being asskickers and community minded.

I'm really happy to see you standing up. It is really messed up what he's done to you and many others.

I have made my attempt to reason with him and we will see how it goes.

you can read it here

·

Just read your post MD — seems like we have a sociopath on our hands...

·
·

haha, he just threatened me and my family instead of reasoning then came in the discord group i invited him to and left the same threat.

·
·
·

What an asshat!

The guy’s pulling 10s of thousands out of Steemit every week from an account that’s only 3months old and he has nothing better to do than flag/downvote people that are just trying to post good content and make a few bucks.

I just don’t get it... whomever it is has serious character flaws.

·
·
·
·

That is for sure. I've had an Idea for how to stop him but it will take commnity efforts.

·
·
·
·

@raybrockman has rallied #steemsilvergold & #metalsmafia, and there is strong support from #thealliance — if anyone of us gets tagged there is going to be a fucking flag-storm!

Nice! I like it man

hit me up in discord I have something i'm mulling over

·

·

Hi Michael, i really “do” discord... i think i have signed up, but fuk-it... can you send me a mssg via steem chat?

Cheers!

Your post has me really concerned with even putting forth the effort of writing quality post and trying. I have been really excited about how much I have been enjoying the steemit platform. But after reading about these bots and how the whales as they are called can just squash you for their enjoyment scares me. I am very sorry that these has happened to you. I hope things start to go back to more uplifting post and these people stop being mean and stop doing what they are doing
I am really going to have to rethink the time and effort I put into steemit and I am not going to be buying any steem dollars just to have people like these to just consume and take them.

·

You are not alone in your fear, these counter-productive fucktards will ruin this place and their own investments, because they are churlish, childish, ignorant, rich, bratty little idiots.

·

When I entered steemit I was surprised what some people are doing on a daily basis - and how easily you can see what they do - etc etc. Some seem to be so busy with upvoting/bots/whales etc and making comments and request upvotes their own posts by others for SBD. In other groups I saw people sending 0,00001 steem and in the comment ask for an upvote "because I am poor". Fascinating!

·
·

Yep, it’s a miniature macrocosm!

·

These guys are of course correct. However do not let it discourage you from writing.

Show yourself, we all want to see :)

Thanx Stax!

Im Soooooo Fucking confused mate! did you and grumpycat sort it out because hes top of the list of upvoters on this post? like has he realised his mistake and given back the rewards he stole from your last post? i dont know mate sorry you had to deal with this its shit! love you bud

·

Thanks bro! I’m not sure why g-cat gave me a boomer upvote... probably because he realized his mistake, or...?

OK now I've cough up on what's going on... What a complete and utter fuck-tard. Why doesn't this cockwombble mind his on bloody business and then to use the same bots he's preaching against. For fuck sake, what's wrong with the world??!!??

your content is always excellent. Whenever I see your post, I know that there must me excellent quality content in it. So I comment your post before reading the post

·

Thanks sk! I’m working at it so people keep coming back with smiles on their faces.

😁👍

·
·

best of luck for your goal

Wow, that's some bullshit brotha. Fuck that grumpass cat.

·

Thanks venom!

Let it be known

I found our answer to grumpy cat :

·

Love it!!!

...never bring a flag to a gun fight!

This is silly bot obviously, protect the steemians to participate them, you make a great post for their illegal way that's right

I think this may be one of the reasons why a lot of us are receiving less and less of upvotes for our content, because of those who abuse the platform. Definitely discouraging to newcomers such as myself and others when we see so much blatant misuse. I am resteeming this post because I think this is something everyone should be aware of.

·

Thanks nexus!

·
·

Thank you for writing a detailed post that helps put things in a clearer perspective!

It's amazing how much money they can drain from the platform, how is all this possible?

·

That's a good question and I wonder if this sort of exchange is what is decreasing the likelihood of newcomers receiving the attention and rewards they deserve?

·

·

Dickheads like this are what will kill Steemit. Short term gains at the expense of the ecosystem. Boo! Boo Bernie

Yeah, I need to start stacking Steempower. I've been wanting to accumulate Bitcoin, but I'm tired of all the bullies throwing their "weight" around on this platform and the "leaders" not wanting to make waves (with the except few).

Good luck and hope grumpycat doesn't head your way anytime soon.

·

Good plan, let's rally troops!

·
·

On it! Should we start the Steem HODL discord channel and community ;)

·
·
·

Haha, like either one of us has time to run another community! :) But there is some merit to the idea. The Steem HODL for Platform Peace initative lol

·
·
·
·

The SHPP, and maybe people could call us the Sheep? Doesn't sound very threatening or frightening. Maybe we could be the Wolves in Sheeps clothing.

·
·
·
·
·

I like to think its the "SHPP" Ship - Remember a ship was not built to remain in the harbor. Go out and explore and weather the storms!

·
·
·
·
·
·

Oooo I was just joking with mine, but we might be on to something here.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Could be, maybe...

Apparently he only downvotes the good well behaved people not abusing the upvote bots..... That way they draw attention to others about "no bot voting past 3.5 days"

Pretty much pissing people off to get the attention of the bot owners so they change their upvote rules.

Sorry to hear about the bad fortune though 😔

I saw that 1st post where @grumpycat proclaimed the start of their flagging service.

Of course @randowhale was mentioned, who I've used a few times. My thought was, "Great, now I have to worry about losing the 2 SBD that brought my post up to a whopping $4.00.
With services like @grumpycat, all you have to do is sit back and assume the position.

·

I ain’t going out like that

I'm fairly new here and I've seen a lot about GrumpyCat, but mostly just angry rants WITHOUT explanation.

This is the first post I've read with any explanation. And for that, I thank you. Furthermore, your post has clarified for me what everyone else has been upset about. Before now, I haven't been curious to ask. So thanks again!

Cheers! :)

p.s. I am sincerely sorry you fell victim to this monstrosity.

Thanks kk!

Tell Alf not to worry about choking on gimp-cat’s balls — he doesn’t have any!


Thank you for the exposure I'm so glad the blockchain keeps things open source to see and expose the hustlers and liars great post.

·

Also I see you don’t have a Steemit Profile Picture I made a contest post to make it simple to do just scroll down Here

Thx iSteem!!! I’ll have a look

Hey Buddy.. it's a shell account. It probably belongs to berniesanders

Can someone help me out I got attacked on this post
https://steemit.com/steemit/@isteemithard/great-link-tools-for-steemit-info

by @grumpycat for using @boomerang I don't think this should be aloud what should I do?

·

Gimp-cat is a menace! You could resteem this post to get a wider viewership (some ruthless self-promotion here) or write your own post.

Not really sure what other options there are...
Just keep on swimming!

man this is fucked up. this does need to stop.

💩💩💩

What a situation? Any ways I feel this should be looked into?

The whole thing is kinda funny to be honest :) Besides the whole Grumpy Cat meme photos, you got a vigilante do-gooder in @grumpycat who don't really practice he preaches.

Why don't these bot owners just go the 3.5 days route? It costs them nothing. End of story. I mean, if you take @grumpycat's demands out of the equation they should still do it. Everybody wins, spam loses.

·

Yep! I agree.

he's just trolling the heck out of all of us lol.

You are very right such people like @grumpycat should be blocked

Thanks for the PSA @thedamus - this is what the community needs.

Thanks freind steemit

OK, I am confused about upvoting right before payout. I do that on my own posts because I thought I read that it leaves my curators a bigger piece of the pie if I vote last... am I missing something?

·

Voting on an old post (older than 3-4 days) is generally regarded as punk-ass...

·
·

Why? And how would a newbie be expected to know that? Like I said, I thought the polite thing was to be the last to upvote your post, and I read that HERE somewhere.

·
·
·

I'm with you @fishyculture. If you're late to the upvote, your percentage of the payout is substantially lower at a decreasing rate. So if you throw in at the last min, you're donating to everyone else. I have no idea how people have gotten this so badly wrong. Upvoting at the last second is the nicest thing you can do to people who have upvoted any post. This ugly cat is spreading misinformation.

Thank you! I am trying to be a good steem neighbor, and trying to learn. Just declaring something "punk ass" with no explanation sees kinda... punk ass.

It’s all a fucking mire that has gotten ridiculous. Probably when you get up over 500,000 SP your concerns change — while back down here on earth we’d just be happy to share posts and fun...

·
·
·
·
·

...who gives a shit when you upvote your post? If it’s available it’s allowed as far as i’m concerned — all these dogma-huffing ego-vigilantes can eat my: i don’t give a fuck!

Totally agree

Grumpycat, you're the grumpiest! lol

Silly cat.....i hate hypocritcs.They are the problem we have in this World.

Golden boys and girls all must,
As chimney sweepers, come to dust... 😉

Wow, he's set up his own little "protection" racket... that's ugly =\ Here is a video I hope will cheer you up https://steemit.com/creative/@wearetheshow/theater-of-death-macabre

not just cheesy self promotion, it's pretty good, I made it myself and it'll hopefully add +1 happiness to all who see. Peace and love!

Steamcleaners is downvoting anyone people report for a good reason. Randowhale is also said to be accepting SP for SBD.

Just two options to consider.

·

Well hopefully steemcleaners has integrity.

As someone who is new, believes in Steemit, wants to bring good content, and bring others on to the platform, what can I do to contribute to a good Steemit? Anyone got a good article, or some info I can use to get a bit more ahead? I have not used a bot, not really sure I want to unless I have to on here.

Take good pictures, write good stories and interact with people. Plus, explore your interests: find a group that’s into the same shit your into and make friends. And learn how everything works as best you can, and just keep swimming!

Omg I have a lot to learn!
