RE: @ocdb bot went “manual”.....actually I think mental. #flagwars

in #palnet2 years ago

They didn't tell you why they downvoted you in the post? That's pretty low. You've been sucker punched!

I downvote people who abuse my fav tags but always tell them at least once or twice to try and get them to stop.

There is no expectation to tell everyone why... Everyone has stake they can use it to upvote or downvote for any reason.

Do you get mad when people upvote without explaining themselves?

I hope the irony of what you just said isn't lost on you.

see my response above and tell me your opinion on this. You have dealt with me before, you know im a stand up guy who wants the best for this platform. If im wrong.....say it blunt.

I understand where both you and the people behind @OCD are coming from having talked to both. It's not right that investors are being targeted because if no money was flowing into this platform, it would not be desirable.

Unlike some accounts, @broncnutz keeps a ton of SP, I don't see you powering down, you are a large stakeholder. I know you have socks too, so your main account isn't the entire picture. You consistently make original content and although it's not the most creative, that doesn't matter. You do your own thing here and have earned your stake from buying it over time and interacting with Steem. In short, you don't take from Steem, you give and have injected money, which is the purest form of value.

OCD has an idealistic view of Steem, as a socialist Utopian where the creative artist should be in charge. @acidyo has no right to say who should vote for who, but anyone has a right to downvote you. They are downvoting you because of who you upvote, they think you should upvote quality producers and not vote trade with certain accounts. It's not worth fighting with them, because they aren't motivated by money, whereas you are, so you will lose.

Maybe a middle ground can be found where you stop trading votes with the worst offenders who produce junk content and sell their Steem? They are associating you with some of these accounts and it's not that great for Steem to upvote accounts that sell their stakes and/or produce rubbish. Ask them what particular accounts they don't like you upvoting and see if you can cut some of them out.

You could even delegate to @OCDB or some other curation community and reap rewards from it, let them do the work for you because you don't have the time to read 100s of blogs a day. I think they pay delegators in some sort of proportional formula.

#newsteem rewards curators as much as authors, so focusing on curation more may not be the worst idea. You could work something out, where they let you do your own thing, negotiate a % of delegation to show you care about quality and they can leave you alone while paying you for your delegation.

Or exercise your right to downvote, get your circle to help and start a flagwar, anyone delegating to OCDB is a fair target, a bundle of sticks are strong, take them out one by one, it will be easier.

I think this would be a good solution. I just get this "centralized" feeling when we are "negotiating" for who i should vote for and who should vote for me. I am VERY COMFORTABLE" with who my auto voter is set to vote. I have several set to people that don't regularly vote me. I love the content they put out but i dont look at it every single day. Example: @exyle makes videos that have taught me so much here, i dont watch them all but i do watch about 60-70% of them all the way through. I vote on the ones i dont watch because i trust him to provide quality content that adds value to the Steem Blockchain. I provide a completely different type of content here. It takes me a lot of time to do what i do, and obviously @exyle has some sort of appreciation for it. Look man if either one of us wanted to ABUSE the system here we would just exchange 100% votes because we both have similar steem power.....we DON"T exchange 100% anymore but we both want to maximize the ROI because we have invested a lot for three years and bought every single drop many times along the way. I support the "in theory idea" of what @ocd @ocdb is trying to accomplish. I do use the voter bot to save me time and make sure im curating regular quality content but i also manual vote a lot and have since day 1 of being here. I'm always involved and engaged here, it takes up a great deal of my life and i want just a few crumbs in vote exchange to guarantee me in small downside sell pressure so i can buy more to cost avg and help us all in the process. When Steem Gets in my hands, i got the kung foo grip on it because i understand how powerful it is and what it can do for me in the future. I could delegate to a bot like @ocdb and be totally on board but after seeing what they did to me and how sneaky it was with no comment or just plain ole courtesy .....i am afraid of what they will do to others.
