@Joseph - Meet The Witnesses #40
Joseph is a prolific poster, with 13 pages of original posts on his ChainBB home page. He’s known for bringing some off-color humor to the platform, delivering his witness reports via dubbed North Korean propaganda video (r/Pyongyang style), and having recently claimed responsibility for phallic artwork in “I Drew The Dicks”. Somewhere in there, there’s a “Superbad” joke.
Joseph has covered a wide variety of topics on his blog, including humor, chemistry, politics, cryptocurrency, and Steemit current events...and of course, he does seem to enjoy the North Korean topic!
Joseph sponsored two contests to send two Steemians, @BarryDutton and @SaraMiller, to Steemfest 2 in Lisbon. In each case, the prize was $1000 SBD. A testament to their popularity, the contest posts themselves turned a profit, even after paying out the contest winners and curation (this was a revenue-positive giveaway.)
Joseph is a notable detractor of, JerryBanfield, whom he strongly implies is “fake” (along with his followers, apparently) and “a self-absorbed loser.” Joseph goes on to attack Jerry for outsourcing tasks to other Steemians better suited to completing them than himself. I don’t understand this complaint. Does Joseph make his own butter?
I'll let him phrase it in his own words:
In the past, I know Jerry has paid Steemians for post transcripts, technical witness assistance, and I assume help with videos and equipment. He paid me for research. How is this a bad thing? Surely, we must drive out such malice as Jerry’s, post-haste! Such opportunity-sharing within the community is a dangerous precedent. If this continues, we may be forced to endure content that is neither produced by outside advertisers, nor filmed on ShakyCamDark! (patent pending)
Joseph is also a Peerplays witness.
Joseph holds 27,000 SP and is powering down.
