Here's My Answer to Your Attempted Extortion @themilkymark

in #witness-update2 months ago

Your enablers @byzantinehash, @joele and @ukk might as well know too

So yesterday I do what I often do on Steem. I curated some content. Left some comments. Explored around the Steempeak beta to prepare for the Curation Corner interview with @jarvie. Sat in on the @innerblocks radio show in The Ramble. You know, things that actually contribute to the platform in my small way.

Later in the evening I received this in my wallet:

This two-bit account holder doesn’t even have his own stake to back up his extortion demand. No, he’s using delegation from others. More than likely one or more of them are his sockpuppet but who knows. Another account holder with a God complex on Steem .. How unusual.

So, he tells me that he’s going to downvote me if I don’t remove my Witness vote from @themarkymark within 24 hours. He’s going to do so in order for me to know what it feels like to be downvoted.

Sorry dude, you’re two late. I already have a bully with a God complex downvoting me everytime I give away an SBI (Steem Basic Income) unit. And I give them away every week at Pimp Your Post Thursday. So that quota is full. Better find another excuse.

What is with the lame-ass .001 Steem to send your wallet memo? Any self-respecting extortionist needs to send at least 5 Steem to even begin to look serious. Lame.. So so lame.

I see you’ve sent that memo to some of my friends. The very same memo, no originality there, just copy paste like some mindless monkey. Maybe you are a mindless monkey. Maybe that’s an insult to a mindless monkey who is likely brighter than you are.

I really don’t know you. I have no idea who you are other than you’ve made a really lame extortion demand. It does appear you are butthurt because you landed on @themarkymark’s blacklist along with @minnowbooster’s. Don’t know what you did with your $4.20 account to earn that but it must have been interesting to get on two lists, not just one.

I see one of my Steem friends made you a counter offer. He would like you to send him 1500 Steem and he’ll remove the vote. I really like you @abdex9 but that’s a little too easy. He needs to be sending you at least 250,000 Steem to expect you to give up your right to decide who you vote for. Reach for the stars my friend.

So @themilkymark here’s the thing.

I know @themarkymark. He has participated in the Monthly Witness Chats I do in The Ramble discord. I’ve chatted with him in other venues and I know full well he does things on this platform to benefit the platform because he cares about it.

So let’s see.

Do I give up my right to vote for the Witness of my choice because some two-bit account holder with a God complex makes a really lame extortion demand or do I vote for someone I think adds to the platform?

OH THE PAIN OF DECISION MAKING!!

OH but there’s more you’re wanting to remind me… you’re going to downvote me if I don’t comply. Right, so you’re going to remove rewards from posts that I haven’t actually earned yet since they aren’t mine until payout.

You’re going to be busy downvoting others as well which means you’re going to be depleting your voting power and reducing your ability to earn any curation rewards.

So, the downvote threat is not really a gain for you dude. You’re really lame at figuring this out aren’t you? The God complex does that to you.

Here’s the bottom line and the answer you’ve been waiting for @themilkymark:

Hell will need to freeze over before I surrender my right to choose who I vote for.



Is that clear enough for you?

Have a nice day doofus

Love it. I heard this jackass was sending out these memos so I added my 90k of SP proxy to Marky's witness votes.

Perfect response ... add votes don't take them away.

I saw this and well it seems we have some more pain in the ass people to deal with now. The one downvoting SBI was not enough, I guess!
He could have sent me one million steem and I would not have removed my vote for @themarkymark.
You cannot buy my right to vote for who I want too.
I sent his little 0.001 Steem back with a memo of a few choice words of my own.

Hahaha! I love it. I caught that memo a minute or 2 after posting and went through to see what was behind the account, who was delegating and who the targets were.

Pretty obvious who the doofus is and which accounts belong to that person. I have no idea individually who it is but the memo went out like an automated spam email.

The only thing that sucks is, besides all the energy spent trying to get revenge instead of contributing to the platform, is the press this knob is getting.

Ah well this should be funny in a Rob Ford sorta train wreck kinda way.

You know I was thinking about that clown when I was writing this. Funny we both went to the same place LOL

Oops. It took me a while to figure out whassup, but any press this juvenile noob is getting will be bad press.

I never quite understand who these people are.

"You're not doing things the way I want them to be, so I'm going to try to ruin it for everyone, unless we do it MY way! Waaaah...."

When I was in college, one of my housemates' cat would pee in her boyfriend's shoes, if he left them in the bathroom where the litter box was... THAT approach was way more effective than this circus...

But well said.

Edited to add: It appears this individual has since been blacklisted by @dlease...

cats definitely have a way of getting their point across don't they LOL

Good to hear about @dlease's response .. thanks for letting me know.

I bet this person thinks they are a special case, but Marky has hammered loads of Steem abusers and I thank him for it. It's bad enough that he gets so much shit for it, including death threats. Anyway, this dirtbag doesn't scare me. The worst they could do is take the odd dollar off me and that is unlikely as they would have loads of other people to flag too. I see some people removed their votes, but I expect many will not back down.

Steem on!

Ok great, so any further activism planned? Any OSINT done on their delegators?
Downvoting wars are dumb so I think it's more important to ruin them instead, if need be.

At least one (joele) was processed by Dlease. All for 2steem a day, lol.
It's a sad day for delegating.

Well if he could claim genius level he'd not have an account worth less than five bucks and that is after the price going up :) LOL

Goes to show that acting like a fool around here doesn't lead to riches.

Milky tried to cancel the delegation request, but was blocked from doing so by dlease because he's blacklisted.

I like how he tried to cancel a few times. The autonomy of dlease pleases me.

Agreed. He's losing big!

Maybe that’s an insult to a mindless monkey who is likely brighter than you are.

Lmfao! Great reply to this asshat. And I feel you on the mmmsucadikkk sentiment. Bullies do what they do, nothing new.

gotta have some fun when these monkeys err clowns raise their heads.

Account was created via dlike. Maybe the curation trail that this account upvotes is a hint to who it is. Someone who is using the same upvote trail is likely to be the same person.
https://steemd.com/@themilkymark?page=23

Accounts that delegated to it via dlease are ukk & byzantinehash

Hell will need to freeze over before I surrender my right to choose who I vote for.

Well said.

Great stuff. I saw that note too. Now I know what to do with it.

Well countered 👍

@shadowspud,

Very well thanks, in the end, these accounts must be closed forever. They also send me this meme as if I were going to intimidate me!

I am not an easy cookie, these people have to be very careful. I am like a robot without emotions when someone does something negative or wants to hard me. Does my advice think 100 times, it is worth it?

People here who try to damage the @steemit platform must be careful remember that everything they do can have very serious consequences. So be smart and think twice before you make any mistake because you can fall into big legal trouble who cost these people serious money or more damage for the rest of their life!

I will resteemed for more information to my colleagues here on @steemit.

I call this type of activity blockchain terrorism. It's an aggressive attack against everyone who does not comply with their demands.

24 hours later, and I haven't seen any downvotes from this individual yet. Either they bluffed or they are lazy.

I was less polite when a responded to that duchebag.

Ok people bring back all such drama again to steemit. We are lacking such entertainment for a while and I am bored...let the fun begin. Amen!

Excellent use of the word doofus

Dude, how dare you insult the monkey like that. You cannot make that comparison! :p

Yeah, that guy is lame and a bully. I won't let a bully dictate who I vote for either. I'm keeping my witness vote as is.

And OMG, that dentist image. I just had two teeth removed recently and I STILL have shadow pain and still can't chew on that side. I FEEL THAT IMAGE! LOL

My witness votes are for sale. If someone really wants to tell me who I should or should not vote for, bids start at 10,000 SP. Otherwise, I'll continue to vote however I like. But I really don't like extortionists. If @themilkymark wants to play that game, his price goes up for each downvote he makes against anyone. Buy now while you can!

@shadowspud :) Also extortion, or blackmail is a felony with a maximum prison time sentence of four years or more...

So think twice before committing a crime.
