RE: Steemit/dTube EXCLUSIVE: Witness @aggroed talks SBD, reward pool drama, much more

I’m still worried that it would be used as a disagreement mechanic, rather than a reward control mechanic.

Example here is that someone with a huge amount of voting weight comes in, disagrees with the politics of David’s videos and decides to make it a bit of a personal challenge to see that they are downvoted.

Sort:  

well yeah - that's certainly a concern.

Fact of the matter is - SteemIt is largely self moderated. So if you post crap - there's nobody aroudn to clean up the mess - and it's up to the users to vote/flag.

But you're right - even now - there's an issue where it doesn't pay to post controversial content - the platform is more or less censored, even if not by design, or by intent.

For example, if some of the whales have strong opinions towards a particular inclination, they can drown out any alternate views.
