Some memes and a little fireside chat
It isn't often @transisto makes original content, for years he just plagiarized on multiple accounts like @zer0hedge while lying it isn't him.
When he does make content, he is sure to make sure he gets what he is owed.
My favorite of all time is his $940+ duct tape meme.
This Tezos meme is quite good too, he is selling himself short for only $590, he probably could have gotten more.
When you are making $485 on memes, you certainly are #winning!
@transisto showing his great artistic talent, two lines and a Huh? for just over $400. A little more creativity, he probably could have done twice as good.
Honestly, I have no fucking clue what this means, I suspect he doesn't either as it is just a place to throw some big votes.
This is far too creative to be from our manchild @transisto, and as we can see from the tags, it's not original content. A movement transisto started when he got caught plagiarizing on @zer0hedge and wanted a to justify voting up stolen content.
All these memes are property of @transisto via one of his many alts. I will add my own meme to compliment his.
Don't forget about his other project @grumpycat, that was the cat's meow.
If you are curious how this whole downvoting thing started, transisto started to upvote automated posts that contained a single image up to 10 times a day. I noticed this and started downvoted them as automated posts from dapps like this do not deserve rewards.
You can see an example of these posts here or look at the @no-agenda.art account.
The account is run by @brianoflondon and I do not believe he is at fault here, and didn't do anything malicious, it just happened @transisto thought it a good idea to just upvote all these.
He claims it isn't 10 times a day and only 20 times a week.
As a result he decided to zero all my posts and flag anyone I upvote as you can see here on his alt.
So if you are getting downvotes as a result of either of my votes, this is why. Previously I was voting over 200 unique authors a week with $10+ votes evenly. Many of my votes were the significant portion of what they earned and never my votes were never influenced by anyone or anything and purely organic. I do not own @xbuildawhale or @xthemarkymark, this both belong to our local manchild @transisto.

Sounds like a swell fella.
Is he also the one behind the xleo.voter?
He is behind all the x accounts.
Gotcha. Well, I guess I'll know I've made it big when we get an @xdbooster
Hahaha, these are new Hive goals! :D
For 10 dollars @lightproject will make it for you!
maybe not such a bad idea to reserve the account for yourself now 😉😂 Cut the limb off before it grows legs 🤣🙌 !ALIVE
@dbooster! You Are Alive so I just staked 0.1 $ALIVE to your account on behalf of @samsmith1971. (3/10)
The tip has been paid for by the We Are Alive Tribe through the earnings on @alive.chat, feel free to swing by our daily chat any time you want.
Damn bro! Dont let them get ya down! I do not see the need to do this or why anyone would......big up all you do!
Are people getting upset over the DVs from the X-minions? They do no real damage. I'm used to getting various small DVs, so I won't cry over his. We have to accept that the freedom of Hive lets some people be trolls without fear of being 'cancelled'. Thanks for caring enough to deal with some of them.
I think we need to get people used to the fact that there will be DVs, but they are not always a problem. Anyone could create an anonymous bot that flags loads of accounts. As Hive grows we will see more of that.
He is also following my votes specifically with large downvotes to “get revenge”.
I just wonder why the fucking fuck none of you aren't just doing the opposite.
¿What if you, he, them or whoever just don't try to follow each other "downvotes" specifically with the intention to grant large upvotes to “get revenge” and repair the damn outcomes of your stupid and childish behavior?
Ah, yep. Looks he got me. Oh well I guess. I totally understand and support why you did what you did.

I can understand why these actions upset you because some of these guys have so much power. And maybe there are aspects I don't understand from way down here. However, those of us with much less power truly appreciate all you have done for us, and we hope you don't give up on us because of a few assholes.
I used to run a meetup group of over 1000 people. I was too busy to actually go and meetup most of the time, so the majority of my interactions were the complaints, and, often, it was like dealing with toddlers even though these were adults. I was nothing but kind and yet they literally called me a dictator. I have no desire to dictate! Ha!
My point is that if you go through one half the crap I went through when I ran that group (and I suspect you go through more), it's no wonder you are fed up.
When I actually went to my own meetups, people told me the group was life changing for them -- life saving in some cases. I needed to hear that to balance out all the bullshit email I was getting. I needed to know I was making a positive difference in people's everyday life.
I don't know whether you need to know that. It seems to me that everyone could do with a boost to their morale from time to time. So, if you do, I am telling you that I write much, much more because of you personally. You make it worth the effort for me, and then, when I put in the effort, I feel a little better, and my writing improves. And I am just one of many people your support has helped. I think many people feel the exact same way.
So, thank you. I don't know whether you know that, because of your stature in Hive, it is hard even to thank you because, if I say nothing, I don't risk saying anything offensive or stupid whereas just by thanking you, maybe I have violated an unwritten rule. You know? It's intimidating. I am telling you this in case you wonder why the hell you get complaints, but few if any well deserved thank yous.

Regardless of all this recent shitshow, I appreciate all the support you have given me these past months. Your upvotes, the ones from @buildawhale and everyone else who took the time to read my content mean a lot and gave me not only the necessary motivation to keep on posting, but a way for me to become more financially stable.
I understand why you did what you did, and I'm okay with it. Bad people should be called out, bad actions should be stopped, regardless of the tantrum of a child who thinks he can do everything he wants because he has money.
I got my post downvoted as well. Tomorrow I'll post another. The day after tomorrow, another. And so on and so forth. A downvote coming from a frustrated immoral individual with too big of an ego will do nothing to my determination to post.
Thank you once again for all your support!
Ditto. I'm trying to hit 365 posts in 365 days.
Well the good news is you came for the memes..
Yes we arson.

That said, your actions towards content creators over the years(me included) have been awesome and appreciated and I am sorry that someone thinks collaterally damaging people to get back at you is both A. Not personal (lol) and B. A just and equitable use of one's resources.
Thanks for all that you do.😊

Just to thank you for all the upvotes you done on my posts with your accounts. Largely thanks to you I keep my motivation to write and like that I became a dolphin 🐬 Now buildawhale takes care of someone else now and that's perfect like that. It's not the downvotes on these accounts that will change anything. Your help is fully appreciated 🙏
Didn't use your downvotes? Downvoted. (see @livinguktaiwan)
Didn't use English? Downvoted.
Plagiarized for ages? Couldn't be touched by @hivewatchers because of hypocrisy. Yet, he sure votes for their proposals.
I didn't expect anyone who "dine and dash" to be of good moral character anyhow.
To be honest, most of No Agenda's viewer base probably doesn't give a damn about Hive. Just like most people from @atheistrepublic didn't care to be here either.
@Transisto is literally one of the "whales" that needs to disappear from Hive for the betterment of the platform. He is a problematic character just like some of the whales that eventually met their end and exited the chain, after screwing with everyone for years.
omg I forgot about that! Can you tell us the story.
@juliakponsford was the witness I believe.
@juliakponsford, please tell the story, I only heard part of it.
Not much to tell
Oh, saw them at another meetup and my bf said oh I remember you, you ran out of the restaurant pretty fast last time 😂 not transisto but his friend, I forget his name
Was it a big bill that they walked out on?
I feel like some people just get a kick out of screwing over others. Like it makes them feel good about themselves in some way - as if they are smarter than the other person or something.
I have no idea I didn't pay it 😂 maybe they sent some steem after the fact to cover it idk
Haha maybe. Something tells me that that was likely not the case, given this:
Rest in Peace Marky, I will always have a soft spot in my heart for you -
Your explanation says it all and is appreciated greatly. I'm sure a lot of people didn't realize the "X" in front of your account names. It will keep happening until it doesn't, unfortunately, but at least the reasoning is clear now. Thank you.

I've got a lot of messages, it definitely confuses a lot of people. Even people who have been here for a while.
I can't imagine what you had to go through. For sure it had to be infuriating. Bringing it to light was the best action I think.
Wait! If I understand correctly, those whales discovered that they've been auto-voting some author's post right?
I feel that even after auto-voting, they were supposed to check back to confirm that they are voting for genuine authors and not spammers or plagiarizers.
I doubt I've been placed on auto-vote by any whale, I've not been receiving downvotes, it's just my regular reward.
What I don't understand is why it seems like the auto-downvote is affecting a lot of genuine authors too I guess.
I get the best would be for the whales to review their auto-vote them go back to down-vote users who don't deserve the vote...

You're just learning a lesson in karma buddy. Just a while ago, I wrote to the German community under my post about you, that I wish a whale would come along and kick your butt.. Well, that went fast! 😂 You probably mobbed hundreds of good bloggers off of Hive. You used your beloved downvote button like a whip and you enjoyed it, probably because of some disorder you have! Now you're getting, what is coming for you...
Too long did you isolate and mob good and honest bloggers with your downvote buddies, treating them like lepers, now take a taste of your own medicine! How does it taste Marky? BITTER huh?
You're complaining about your own favorite button? Don't be a salty bitch! ;)
AWESOME CURATION: Whiped! 🚽🪠
I really don't want to be sucked into this but you've done that.
Both @themarkymark and @transisto often upvote my content and I believe you've both voted for my proposals. @no-agenda.art is a bot that reposts a vast amount of ORIGINAL content. If I had more time I would be pushing harder to get more of the No Agenda artists on to Hive and owning their own accounts, that's what the system is built to do and to showcase Hive as a place for communities.
I've bought Hive Punks and used Mark's services not because I think I'll get rich, but because I like to support innovation on Hive.
The No Agenda Mastodon instance is promoted to over 1m podcast listeners on every single show. It would be nice to get some mind share on the show for Hive, we already have a huge foothold in Adam Curry's head because he knows that @Podping, the global notification system for Podcasting 2.0 only works because of the unique characteristics of Hive. The earnings from @no-agenda.art are hypothecated to make donations to the No Agenda show, I have a pending donation of $333 I need to do soon but I've been too busy with @v4vapp. I probably have more than that but honestly this hasn't been a huge focus of mine.
Funnily enough I've known @transisto has been a listener to that show for a long time. Whatever your past curation and upvoting beefs you've had with him in the past, his support of this particular endeavour did not come at my bidding but I fully understood why they came.
The entire point of the DHF is to avoid voting automated (or any post) to raise funds for projects. In fact the project already has DHF funding. If it wasn’t for this we would have hundreds of people self voting 60-80 comments a day like hive watchers used to do before their proposal got funded.
Either way his response is super mature.
Nothing directly related to No Agenda or my art bot is funded by the DHF, this is totally a side project of mine. Podping had a one time DHF claim which I used to pay others to do some of the dev work that I hadn't learned at that time and most of that DHF payout is now powered up and acts as the HP necessary to keep the thing running.
I just want it known that I didn't set up that bot to milk the reward pool and I have no intention of doing that. If people like some of the art, they might want to upvote it and if they do, I'll pass that on to No Agenda and/or the original artists if they decide to open Hive accounts.
I always wonder how these... "whale wars" get started and what the back story is behind them. Thanks for clarifying.
Thank you, Marky. Your presence and support have always been very much appreciated. You try to do things equitably, to keep some sort of balance here on Hive, and your support encourages so many people to write more and challenge themselves in ways that they did not think possible. There will always be the haters and the takers. And sure we are all caught in the crossfire here but we rise above it all and in the end we are better for it. !LUV !ALIVE !PIZZA !hivebits

Marky's always been helpful, from way back in my Steem days, right until this very day.
It amazes me, how many others are simply jerks, or jealous.
This post has been upvoted by the VYB Curation project
How are you today Marky?
What happened to your profile image that resembled more of who or should I say what you really are.
So strange you are having problems with the down-vote button. Hmmmm, how did that happen?
Don't worry, keep telling your little warriors to make sourceforge reviews. while the price of Hive is about to fall off a cliff. Where do you think the next leg down brings us to?
Dang. When the tables turn eh.... You should Blurt about it.
Appreciate you man and everything you do for Hive and all the creators here. Thanks for supporting so many of us!
I wish my memes would get a $940 payout lol :)
I have much better memes and I never got that much either.
One of the fairly universal truisms I took to heart many years ago:
I am very grateful for the upvotes for my art account from both @themarkymark and @buildawhale because the serve as a regular reminder of why I bother.
Sadly, I expect there will always be people with personal axes to grind, and they don't care one tiny bit about the collateral damage caused by their personal vendettas. It all rather reminds me of grade school: "I hate you because you're friends with Jack, who's on the baseball team with Bob, who's friends with Dave who's my sworn enemy!"
Oof. Always some sort of drama unfolding in these parts.
Regardless, I appreciate the support you’ve thrown myself and a couple of other friends throughout the years. Hope this quotes down soon for you, brother.
So how do you get into the MEME club? !LOL
Couple hundred quid for doing fuckall would do wonders in this recent economy 🤣
Sometimes when I'm bored I grab a beer smoke a spliff and read all the past drama on Hive, so fucking entertaining 🤣
Ridiculous. The last gif is right. Mind you, I don't pay much mind to the politics of it as I just want a peaceful life hanging out with my Hive homies! I super appreciated your upvotes - not because of the HIVE, which was great and kept me wanting to create good content - but because it felt like I was being SUPPORTED to create such content, like a Patreon vote I suppose. Anyway, more nonsense in the hood. Again, appreciate what you've done for me. Ignoring the 'x' anything and hoping it settles down.
Newsflash also gave me the biggest Downvote ever. For no fucking reason! Didn't know who was behind it. I have never ever did a shitpost in my entire hive life. It was so disheartening as a creator who put his valuable time, own money, blood and soul to build my brand on the platform. Almost decided to leave. Thanks to the lovely peeps at Leo Finance who made me think straight and stay. We need to stop this from happening on Hive otherwise the cream will move to other platforms. He is probably putting his own stake at stake. I feel for the poor people who are getting those DVs just because you upvote them. You can take it Marky but those creators won't.

Well, it is quite sad when this type of conflicts end up generating strong collateral damage, such as not being able to receive your votes anymore due to retaliation and downvotes, however, it is the right thing to do, the complaint is totally valid.
I would like to thank you for all the support you have given me during these 4 years that I have been in this blockchain world, because since Steem I received support for being on your whitelist, I will always be grateful, because really no whale votes me at all although I make good quality content every day (or at least I try), you have been a fundamental pillar for me in that sense, you have been basically the only support I have had during 90% of my blockchain journey.
Now we will have to wait to see how this conflict ends, but you have my full support because I know that things will end well in the end, they are just small setbacks, greetings Marky, thanks for the work you do for this blockchain.
Wow this is terrible. I thought the downvote wars are over😮. Transisto always love vintage stuff😣😣. This is 2022. Please guys end this back and forth. I'm sure a good % of people depend on @themarkymark upvotes, the world is shitty enough already. You guys can settle this amicably, not being condescending 😕😕
Sorry to see this happening. For what it is worth, I think you have done good things for hive, both with the anti-plagiarism and anti spam... As well as supporting others.
