24

By the time you read this it will be exactly 24 hours since the plot to hijack the Steem Blockchain was enacted.

Much happened during these 24 hours.

There were ethical dilemmas.

There was shouting about Communists.

There may or may not have been talk of whether this was the warning shots of AI emergence.

There was and is much talk of cutlery. But not so much knives.

There have been mutterings that it is the beginning of a cyber war with China.

Someone proclaimed we should all act together as there was no I in Community. (Everyone was a little too embarrassed to correct that one.)

And finally there came the repeated internal server errors as the code behind the scenes is twisted and molded into something... other.

Aliens or just creatures from... the Sun???


What can we do?

The ordinary content creator who wants somewhere to post and play and cares little for the drama?

The spammer, anguished that their comment farm is being humped by the autovoters being down?

The seemingly unbothered posters who look to have enacted an elaborate auto post scheduling feature of their own and who are shitposting still, oblivious of everything?

Seriously though, how can there be regular users that don't know what's going on?

There is one thing we can do.

It might be painful and it might hurt but we can do it.

WE CAN DO IT!

What is it..?

Read on

We can vote in the ex top twenty witnesses even if you think half of them are sponging deadbeats!

Go. It's a means to an end. Vote them in! I have, even though my fingers now feel dirty and not in a good way.

And yes, even those ones...

Sort:  

The seemingly unbothered posters who look to have enacted an elaborate auto post scheduling feature of their own and who are shitposting still, oblivious of everything?

These are the skilled and determined no doubt!

At present though, as long as they are voting 21 and down I will forgive.

Yeah, I will forgive them too. It is quite astonishing though! :0)

!ENGAGE 50 !

Perhaps they'll show up at the end of the week to schedule 7 more winners and find no autos are present, then start to look around?

Maybe that's it, they certainly don't seem to have noticed the autos are down yet!!

I'm reading a lot of different contents about it, but this one is my favorite because it's clear enough for me ! ^_^ Cheers, dear Meesterboom!

Hehe, you know I like to sum it up succinctly!! :0D

I just commented on this somewhere else. It feels like there are a subset of people that are either totally oblivious or they just don't care. I am not saying everyone needs to make a mandatory post about what is going on, but it is almost shocking to see the number of people still posting who literally have no clue.

It totally is.

I am with you in that people don't have to post about the shenanigans and that's fine but it's starting to see the same multi posts with no mention or hint of knowledge of what's going on.

I have actually been messaged in discord by someone asking if something had happened!

Madness, makes me think twice about some folk

Oh my, that is pretty crazy. I guess it is a little harder if you don't use Discord to know what is going on, but still. There were so many posts yesterday it would have been hard to miss.

The feed was nothing but posts about it. That's the worrying thing, it seems that some people don't look. Just post and run. I always knew that was the case but the ones I had left in mine I thought were different. Sigh

Yes, I agree. I've also been pretty sad to see just how little my posts are read apparently. With the auto-voters down it gives you a pretty good idea of just how little people actually care about your content :)

Yeah, I reneger the hardfork before the last and the autovoters went down. It was quite the eye opener!!

Tough-international-spy expressions look good on you @meesterboom. As does the suit.

Oh yes, I suit the rugged Bond look. Lol!

The virus infects STEEM :D
it seems the real info war has began...
Watch your crown chakra! :P

Soon the worms will start infesting our naughty bits networks!!

...We can vote in the ex top twenty witnesses...

Make it so! 😄👍

Like the Democrats say... Vote early. Vote often.

You gotta be in it to win it!!

I'm in! for the show ;)

And what a show!!

Shit show. :D
I do not know where, but I saw these exact words in someone else's comment about the same topic (about the current Steem situation, mainly about forcefully replacing the top 20 witnesses) under another post.

Edit: I found the comment. This is the comment under this post. This post is about @andrarchy resigning as Head of Communications for Steemit. The comment is written by @klye.

It is a shit show, he got that spot on!!!

I feel for the guys who resigned. What an out of the blue shit show of a shit storm for them!

Divine power's watching over us! ;)

Always! ;0)

oh this oe was good!

including this...

Someone proclaimed we should all act together as there was no I in Community. (Everyone was a little too embarrassed to correct that one.)

Cheers!! Trying to lighten the events a little! :0)

Lol, that's what my list is all about as it gets to its conclusion.

All I can see is father Ted shouting about the money resting in his account

:0D

good ol father Ted

Enjoy the drama, it will be an interesting day for sure

Interesting days. Perhaps weeks although I rather hope not!

SBI still managed to vote my post. A tuppance earned is a tuppance gained. Slow and steady. Soon Il be king.

Some voters are still working, amazingly!

Oh these are exciting time Boom! We will look back and say we were there!

Haha! Look at that artwork! You really look like Kiefer Sutherland sir meesterboom!

We must have a word about your trigger discipline. Keep your booger hook off the bang switch unless you're absolutely ready to lob a freedom seed toward a predator!

Damn, my booger hook is all over the place!!! :0)
