From the Author:
I am JaiChai.
And if I haven't had the pleasure of meeting you before, I'm delighted to make your acquaintance now.
I invite you to interact with everyone, learn and have as much fun as possible!
For my returning online friends, "It's always great to see you again!"
Platform Behavior: Be careful what you incentivize..
I see a troubling issue that is steadily growing. If left unchecked, Torum will never be the same.
OWCs (One Word Comment) and SMCs (Singular Mini-Meme/Emoticon as a Comment)
Continually rewarding OWCs and SMCs incentivises the wrong behavior on Torum.
If you stop and think about it, rewarding OWCs and SMCs ultimately robs us all.
Because the XTM tokens come from THE COMMUNITY'S REWARD POOL!
Do you think it's fair to pocket the same mission XTM fot a split-second, bordering on disrespectful, OWC or SMC that another member receives for contributing a relevant, thoughtful and beneficial comment?
Call To Action: Please, please put some thought and a little effort into your comments!
Honor each member of the Torum family with your best. only then will you deserve their's.
[The following is not hyperbole. I've witnessed the demise of many platforms over the years as a result of far less.]
If OWCs and SMCs continue to rise unchallenged and still be rewarded, reaching Torum's full potential as THE Crypto-Social Super App on the web will never happen.
And continued complacency will eventually change Torum into a nonsensical, bandwidth-sucking, XTM welfare state.
If that happens, Torum will become a laughing stock; ridiculed by the rest of the Crypto and social media spaces - and rightfully so.
Think. Think hard!
I have faith in the collective spirit and intellect of the Torum platform. I KNOW WE CAN DO BETTER.
Just like my singing, if I post an OWC or an SMC, I don't expect, nor will I accept any rewards.
In lak'ech, JaiChai.

Believing that school was too boring, he dropped out of High School early; only to earn an AA, BS and MBA in less than 4 years much later in life – while working full-time as a Navy/Marine Corps Medic.
In spite of a fear of heights and deep water, he performed high altitude, free-fall parachute jumps and hazardous diving ops in deep, open ocean water.
After 24 years of active duty, he retired in Asia.
Since then, he's been a full-time single papa and actively pursuing his varied passions (Writing, Disruptive Technology, Computer Science and Cryptocurrency - plus more hobbies too boring or bizarre for most folk).
He lives on an island paradise with his girlfriend, teenage daughter and two dogs.
