RE: Warning to vote buyer/sellers! - Introducing GrumpyCompliance, mandatory in 14 days. (No more post-promotion allowed past 3.5 days)
There is no responsible way to sell votes on a platform where the selling of votes hurts the opportunity for content to get rewarded fairly. With whales selling their voting power, there is far less reason for any to vote on a great post simply because it is great.
What are curation rewards for again?
Oh yes. So until vote-buying is no longer a part of Steemit, neither should curation rewards be. These cunts are literally receiving rewards, which were put in place to encourage fair voting, for SELLING VOTING POWER.
If all of you just stopped fucking buying votes, within a week the whales would have two choices. Start voting fairly again to get their curation rewards, or watch as everyone else's voting power increases significantly because they haven't been voting.
That aside; even if what you proposed was in any way "responsible," why would you expect anyone to listen to you?
Your upvotes on this post, and in the comments, would suggest to me that you're as much of a greedy abuser of the system as the villains you are trying to paint for us.
But I suppose I am once again wasting my time here. Because you will still be worshiped by the idiots you are impoverishing, because you have a good upvote.. and who gives a fuck about dignity when you can get a decent upvote, right?
