Someone who has been doing this for years with a 73 reputation score? Boy, it can happen to anyone if they aren't careful. I guess since the account would have been copied during the hardfork that created Hive "Steem-only" means the user only posts on Steemit and ignores their Hive account.

Moral of the story: Should have gone with Hive and not Steemit.😁

Oops, it was actually leaked on Hive. Let me edit the post!

And yeh, it can happen to anyone to accidentally paste their key..
But the big warning they get and ignore before publishing.. is on them! πŸ™ˆ
