RE: Azircon You're a Shame! Don't Vote Just Reblog If Hive Is Yours

in LeoFinance27 days ago (edited)

This is exactly the vibes that spread around the blockchain when a zero out is felt. It communicates at an EXTREAMLY intense level because it short circuits the authors audience making the content creator fully aware that their account is not their own anymore. This is another form of centralization and is a dangerous signal to the entire crypto market.

People have an eye on Hive and are waiting to see what we innovate. If the only news coming out of Hive is a zero out culture, anger, and hostility... that's not going to bode well for our cherished brand.


The worst part is, @azricon tagged me in the post that he was triggered by the response to, then proceeded to go on an irrational downvoting spree on every post of mine this week.

That's pretty heavy handed... and just for having a different opinion and also saying 1 word/name that wasn't liked? Yikes man... 😳

@wil.metcalfe, he downvoted every single active post of mine yesterday simply for commenting on a post of someone (friend of mine) who was announcing their departure from the blockchain for being targeted simply for talking to someone on this psycho's hit list. All of my posts are original work, the ones that got hit had actually taken me very many hours to put together - like a week's part time work at least. None of them could possibly be deemed spam, all of them are comprehensive original, well sourced independent journalistic pieces (and a video I put together). So anyone saying azircon only votes spam or spammers is fooling themselves.

I never mentioned or talked to this azircon dude before, and now seem to have been targeted simply for conversing with someone targeted for conversing with @lucylin. It's absolutely out of control insanity. This is psychotic behavior. I've never interacted with this guy, I don't know who he is, he never 'warned' or 'threatened' me for my blockchain 'crime' of speaking to the 'wrong' people before going on a downvote rampage out of the blue. One post fully zeroed out. If this continues, I will likely not be on here long either, this is just not worth the waste of time and effort and stolen follower vote power; and so many of my friends are leaving anyway, because this type of abuse has been going on, though not to this extreme, for many months now, and there are few bullies who make it their job to 'punish' content they don't like. We (who post independent politically incorrect views and happen to be on their radar) are very much used to it. But to 'punish' simply for conversing with someone, and sharing sympathy for their being targeted, is absolutely over the top, and wiping out rewards from all active posts at that, not just one! It's not fair to our followings to have their upvotes nullified by this oppressive tyranny, and it is clear this blockchain is not a welcome chamber for free speech.

I would debate people over differences of opinion, I welcome it, and care less about what all they might call me, but that rarely happens with these types, few are the down-voters willing to engage in conversation or debate with those they downvote, or even leave comments telling you why they downvoted you. But how can you respond to faceless bullying that seemingly has no rhyme, reason, or purpose? Other than to satisfy what clearly appears to be vengeful, vindictive, childish, cowardly sense of ownership over this blockchain that really should be shared by us all, not controlled by a few control freaks. The powers that be have done nothing to reign in such insane abuse of power, and I cannot in such a state as this recommend people join this broken blockchain. I will stay as long as I can bear it, but this is really over the top insanity, and sad the powers that be let it fly.

There is other blockchains with social utilities that are not becoming an echo chamber for a status quo, I will be investing into them.

If abuse is allowed to zero out rewards for the redfish, same thing.
I'll take the non-abuse solution.

The original white paper describes what is happening here, in truth the crab bucket is failing the trending page.
No post should go over 100htu, imo.
Not without some flags on it, anyway.

If the account was putting out daily original content we wouldn't be having this conversation.
The hive will never be for everybody.
