Hi guys. I'm not defending spam and plagiarism but wanted to post my humble opinion. I am a moderator on Uptrennd and really know how annoying it is to fight spam and plagiarism and spend a few hours every day doing it manually. We don't have any bots. Also I am not an employee but volunteer.
I want to ask if everyone who uses d.buzz is considered a spammer. Asked this question on Discord too and was told no. But after reading the comments here, I'm not sure anymore.
I discovered Dbuzz last week and have used it a few times and really like it. And they have a character limit, I think it's 280. Not sure why 256 characters would make a difference.
I use Twitter a lot, so I really like d.buzz and it's one of the most friendly communities for someone like me who don't know everything about Hive or Steem. They are the first to answer any questions. And I have tried asking on many places, some of them with much larger userbase.
So can you please keep the communication channel open because I see that the situation between you is not the best.
There must be a way to block, mute or penalize in another way the people who abuse it. I always wanted to use Share2Steem and Dlike but never did because I was afraid that I will get on a blacklist or something. I am more about sharing news articles than writing long posts. But I do this on Twitter.
I was thinking that if users are afraid to use Steem and Hive, it goes against everything the platforms stand for. On the other hand I see a lot of spam comments on Steem for example and they are never downvoted. Small accounts like me are probably afraid of starting a downvote war. But high level accounts?
I even reported 2 accounts yesterday to a few high level curators and only one replied saying that yes it is spam but nothing can be done. Finally nikv on Hivewatchers group took action.
But try to understand the Dbuzz side too. They have this little Project that is promising and very user friendly, especially for new users. They must feel like David against Goliath.
I am not one of those who say Free Speech is above everything else. I really hate, fake news, disinformation, terrorism etc but there must be a middle way in this case.
This comment got very long. I am just a simple user so maybe I am missing something, and have not been using the platforms for some months now. But just wanted to let you know the opinion of someone who understands both sides. I hope I don't make any enemies here with the comment 🙏. Thank you for reading this (if you made it to the end 😄)
