Introducing: The Church of Piglet (as if we need an introduction)

in #introduceyourself3 years ago (edited)

An edited repost serving as an introduction post; isn't it great?

We are the Church of Piglet.

What we are about is in our Eleven Guidelines, the following of which will keep you on the Path of the Righteoustm. Here they are:

The Eleven Guidelines

You may wonder what you can do to make this a better place and offer some counterbalance to the skulduggery going on, preferably without getting retaliatory flags and dying a noble Steemit death.

To help you think about this, or rather think for you, as you want us to do, the Church of Piglet is kindly providing you with these eleven guidelines:

  • Focus on and vote for those you like and/or who provide content that interests you;
  • Don't follow the rich just because they have big wallets;
  • Unfollow all vote buyers;
  • Check for ghost followers who can't be arsed to curate and unfollow them;
  • Mute those on the trending page you feel are being grossly overpaid or otherwise annoying;
  • Mute schemers, reward pool rapists, vote-for-voters, circle jerkers, in-crowd free-wheelers, and the like;
  • Mute sycophants shamelessly sucking up to the big wallets in the comments;
  • Flag comment spammers;
  • Support whales who still care, and vote for witnesses who still care;
  • Provide the best content you can;
  • Read like you want to be read, and curate like you want to be curated.

If you follow these guidelines, you are at least doing your bit to make this a better place, and hence you can call yourself a righteous member of The Tribe of Good Intent, the layman's organisation associated with the Church of Piglet. This also entitles you to guidance towards the Road of Success for only $4.95 (no refunds). Note that following these guidelines may make you unpopular in some circles.

Full church membership requires a very sizeable donation; the High Priest, Holder of Truth, and Keeper of the Ivy Staff has to eat as well, even though I am doing all this out of goodness, and to help you, and because I care, and all that, like all Life Gurus on Steemit say they do, the difference being that they lie and I don't, as I have access to The One Truth and can't seem to get around it.

And remember: it is all up to you, nobody else will make things better (except me, of course, your guiding light).

Don't forget to donate generously; we are poor.

Resteem this for a free blessing, and go in peace.

We have no current vacancies for ministers, and getting ordained is by invitation only anyway. Large sums of money sometimes work miracles though, if we can get away with it without compromising our high standards.

Kind regards,

The High Priest of the Church of Piglet, Holder of Truth, and Keeper of the Ivy Staff.

Welcome to Steem Community @church-of-piglet! As a gentle reminder, please keep your master password safe. The best practise is to use your private posting key to login to Steemit when posting; and the private active key for wallet related transactions.

In the New Steemians project, we help new members of steem by education and resteeeming their articles. Get your articles resteemed too for maximum exposure. You can learn more about it here:

The CoP notices you are using a feeble excuse for automatically posting the same comment text under newbies' first postings and then upvoting them with a -2 rep account.

We do not like you, @gaman. Please go away.

Gentle reminders are shit.

Hi, I'm @edosweet. I stopped by to give you a warm welcome to the Steemit platform. I wish you good luck and many good things as you join us.

I like so much every point in the eleven guidelines! oink oink :D

Blessings be upon you!

Will Tigger and Pooh be along shortly to join Piglet? :)

Also, oink oink oink. Pigs make delicious bacon.

Blasphemy! I should smite you with the Ivy Staff for even suggesting turning Piglet into bacon.

Perhaps we shall gather for some feast of oats and a roll about in the muddy soils of this here animal farm?

Piglet is the most equal of all.

Wel de juiste account gebruiken bij het reageren hé ;-)

Merci @vcelier je ne savais pas que tu parlais couramment le flamand 😉

I might as well tell everyone in the @church-of-piglet, please ignore me I buy votes for my post and others I like and I sell my votes so I can buy votes. I won't hate on you I promise, I won't even know you ignored me, it's all cool.

We applaud your candour. If you were one of our flock, you would be a sinner, and grievously hath the CoP answered your offence; as you are not, there will be no smiting with the Ivy Staff (also because we have the impression our High Priest rather fancies you).

Still , we would, of course, appreciate it if you would mend your ways.

Go forth in peace.

I walk the middle way between heaven and hell, I wish those of faith that believe in the goodness of humanity all the best. I don’t have much faith in humanity because those who walk the dark side use our faith to manipulate and profit from our ignorance and turn those who are ignorant but truly caring into tools of injustice.

The definition of abuse is to wrongly use resources. To cause harm to others, rape or molest. The bots and delegation are a reality in the mundane sense and I use them in moderation. If these services are used correctly there is no abuse of resources or rape of the rewards pool. 😇

There are some rather unpleasant side-effects caused by the delegation/bot/votebuying circus that could well be considered abuse of resources, or at least going against the grain in a detrimental way of what a DPOS based site such as this should be, but hey, we don't like to spend too much time convincing people, we prefer to tell them what to do suggest a course of action 8-P.

😂😂😂 I dunno enough about DPOS, I’ll research before I argue. I love CIRQUE DU SOLEI🤡

Yay, now I can see more of my favorite pig. And learn a thing or two in the meantime. I have far to go.
I do hope you can now buy him an Air Conditioned Pig House with all your donations. He deserves it.

Blessings be upon you. The CoP knows you and thinks you have already arrived. We appreciate righteousness does not pay the bills, but it's something.

The Holy Piglet is comfortable, but mildly annoyed because a seagull shat on our Learjet.

Go in peace.

Tho I'm glad any donations I shall give in the future go to the quick and efficient dissemination of profound thought and deed through rapid air travel.
I can now sleep tight at night.
Yur crackin' me up here...

Effectiveness may have suffered, but we are nothing if not efficient. We may need a bigger plane to avoid refuelling stops, though, so maybe the seagull was a blessing after all.

One would certainly HOPE you would get a new plane, after being besmirched by a bird most foul. I've seen much more carried forth for much less a slight.

welcome to steemit and thanks for your nice post.

You are most welcome.
