Spammers/Plagiarists(Grey List/Black List)
This list is exclusively based on the data of Spam/Plagiarism cases in Season 2 up to Week-5.
It has been a long-standing battle for us to fight the good fight against spam/plagiarism. However, with continuous vigilance, we have been able to curb spam/plagiarism of late.
In season 2, with the introduction of the new threshold, the number of spam/plagiarism cases has dropped significantly.
Until the end of week-5/Season 2, the total number of unique spammers/plagiarists stands at 103. We have categorized it into two lists--
- Black List
- Grey List
Black List- The users who spam/plagiarize more than once/many times feature in this list.
Grey List- The users who spam/plagiarize only once(so far).
All such users have been advised to correct the course, return to the path of hard work, and are asked to complete Task-3 in Newcomers' Community to develop a better understanding of content etiquette.
Note- If you feature in the Black List, the professor will skip your post, they won't curate you in Steemit Crypto Academy.
We have collected all sorts of data from Week-1 to Week-5 to prepare this report.
Steemit Crypto Academy is committed to spearheading efforts in crypto literacy in Steem Blockchain. It is equally committed to staffing, mentoring, training, recognition of talents & performance, rewarding them based on PoB.
