What a fucking sadistic, dystopic platform

in #wordsoftheday4 years ago (edited)

@themarkymark is at it again,

proving that children run the witness nodes and that given a seperate, weighted, downvote pool they'll use it like children to impulsively and vindictively downvote those who cross them and out of pure jealousy. This system has no checks and balances to ensure equilibrium and so a power hegemony of "whales" (children) terrorize anyone that speaks out against them. That is the exact opposite of freedom. That is the epitomy of tyranny exposed beautifully for all to see. And @steemitblog (Steemit Inc.) is 100% to blame by creating this new downvote pool.

Here's what going from 75/25 to 50/50 curation rewards really means:

Whales get twice as much while minnows get 1/3 less.

Wake up people

The price of Steem is swiftly headed to $0.00 and in a vein and irresponsible power move Steemit Inc created this last HF in a bid to keep their personal finances afloat. They said "fuck the users who bought steem. We need to keep our own paychecks coming in."

Art Word of the Day

Every day I make an attempt to add a little bit more art knowledge to the Internet, one word at a time. Realizing there aren’t many comprehensive and complete online art dictionaries, I set out on a mission to compile my own.

Download the Brave Browser and get $5 in the cryptocurrency BAT!!

The Brave Browser pays you in BAT (Basic Attention Token) to allow them to display their ads, which you can then use the BAT you earn to tip content creators or just exchange for another crypto. I'm making about $15 a month just from the ads, which are very non-intrusive, and all while simply using the Internet as I normally would. Brave comes with a built in script blocker and ad blocker so it's also very fast and very safe. I opened Firefox the other day and regretfully remembered what a monster it is on resources.

If you download and use Brave as your Internet browser using this link we both get $5 in BAT!!

@joe.public you know, I can still see you on Partiko and as well as any other platform besides steemit.com. Only on steemit are your posts hidden. All the protest bot posts are perfectly visible too. It's why I use it. ;)

@themarkymark what are you doing??? Twice now you have downvoted legitimate upvotes. I did not use a bid bot. SOMEONE ELSE thought my stuff worthy. You're only hurting yourself.
