OK..that's it....I'M CALLING OUT this "@bloom" character who NEVER POSTS, just downvotes. Enough is enough!!!

in #steem2 years ago (edited)

I've held my tongue and never once mentioned it even after MONTHS of regular downvotes from this person, but the time to speak up has come.

These people who do NOTHING for the platform except resteem a couple articles, and who NEVER POST anything of their own--so that someone might choose to treat them to some of their own medicine, or to at least have a way to ask why they are doing what they do-- BUT WHO ONLY DOWNVOTE PEOPLE for no stated reason, have got to be hardforked into civil behavior, somehow.

I've suggested many options for dealing with people like this, including a minimum number of "proof of participation" points (in providing something of value in order to be able to downvote,) or a limit on daily/weekly/monthly down votes, or something. Just because you happen to have money and can buy steem willy nilly should not give you the right to destroy another's intellectual property without cause, argument, rebuttal, comment...or....anything.

It's not quite BernieSanders level of insanity, but it's close:

I am calling on the good people of Steemit to rally against both the @bloom style of nastiness AND the automated/programmed nastiness of people like @BernieSanders, so as to limit the ruination of others with whom they simply may have ideological differences by hardforking in some reasonable prerequisites that can take the edge off of this type of blatant abuse of the forum.

Sort:  

The last time bloom commented he/she stated exactly why they were doing this. It's not the NSA, or Bernie, or a vaccine company, or any other self important reason you conspiracy retards state. It's someone showing their displeasure with you anti science retards in the fastest way possible, a flag.
Your opinions are not worth debating, get over yourself.

Which HF gave people the ability to delete stuff from the blockchain? This is news to me.

BUT WHO ONLY DOWNVOTE PEOPLE for no stated reason, have got to be hardforked into civil behavior, somehow.

Oh, mad because the consensus mechanism sometimes doesn't turn in your favor. Since when is downvoting for no reason "bad" behavior? Isn't one of the rules of the game? It's not like they are destroying your property, they are assisting the blockchain in finding "fair" value for your content.

who NEVER POST anything of their own--so that someone might choose to treat them to some of their own medicine

It's an interesting strategy, but think about it, they aren't making author rewards so what this this threat mean to them? Even if they were forced to post and downvoted, they wouldn't really lose anything... Reputation is basically meaningless and they probably care less about their content's visibility since they don't make content, they downvote.

Like I said, you are under heavy attack by Bernie and all his pro-vax trolls most likely hired by Big Pharma SMH. This asshole has flagged my vaccine posts too along with a couple others. Steemit sucks because you can't block these trolls. This is why I'm most likely not going to be posting much anymore. Until Steemit changes I'm most likely not going to invest anymore time in this site.

I hear ya, bro. Thanks for the post and be well wherever the ether takes you...

It appears you re in a fairly elite group of people the account downvotes. http://steemreports.com/votes-graph-enhanced/?accounts=bloom

I love steemreports, it helps you realize when the pople you support do not support you back, very helpful.

Hmmm...that's a very cool tool.

I'd have thought he had more enemies than that. He certainly seems to do everything possible to collect them.

'might is right', 'you can leave if you like'...blah blah blah...
...and if these accounts were all part of the same leftist postmodernist cabal...?
No proof of ID... No proof of ownership of accounts..No proof of anything.

OR...intel agency?

Crossed my mind, yeah..
For all intents and purposes, I look at it as a 'financial model experiment' - for whatever the reasons behind it.

Come to WeKu dude! Bloom works for the whales!

Confirmed, or...?

I'm pretty sure from experiences in the past that all his VP is delegated- probably one of bernie's bots but I can't confirm. Go to his wallet and see how much of his VP is delegated. Also don't be too surprised if Ned & the devs are behind a lot of these lefty shills

That wouldn't surprise me in the least.

I posited once that 50 people could be running the whole shit show...and got flagged for ages after that...mmmm

Hmmm.....indeed.

They arent people just bots by one person or small group. Until more mass adoption arrives here or circlejerks disband just for people to feel good the problems will not be resolved.

#bloom's M.O. is unique though. Not saying he/she/it doesn't work for the same agency, or something, but I don't think it's another berniebot.

I received hundreds of notifications yesterday because hit bots delete their comments when you flag them. Have any tech info on what happens when you do this? I read somewhere that comments can not be deleted when they receive an upvote. I wonder if it is the same for flags. I also would see if it is just hidden but not deleted.

I don't know anything much about programming, or this site's specific structure. I DO KNOW THAT MYSELF AND OTHERS have even had our upvotes ILLEGALLY (because it's pure theft in anyone's book) turned into downvotes, in addition to all this more standard programmed B.S.

.....the philosphical dilemma I pointed out (which no one listened to, but is coming home to roost).

The rewards pool belongs to no one - ergo - you can't have theft without the property rights principal applying....and if it's no ones property?

....Which then raises the same question from the opposite side of the coin - if it belongs to no one, then what right does anyone have to use it..(vote etc)?

It's an oligarchical structure where ethical codes mean nothing, and might is right...('code is law')

I'm tired of this place.

Yea...unless they clean up the purely ideological and programmed downvoting, and put some type of logical limitations in place, there isn't much of a positive future here for anyone but the abusers.

it's...it's....it's....almost as if it's been designed that way...

Nah...pure dumb, evolutionary luck, I'm sure.

I dont know enough of the story but find it odd that Larimer moved to eos.
