@gaottantacinque @keys-defender You have posted an automatic reply to my post generating a series of downvotes automatically without stopping to verify what my post is about. If your job is to protect our Blockchain from scammers and give warnings of fraudulent sites, then we are on the same team, since my post informs precisely about the fraudulent website included in your blacklists.
I appreciate the immediate review of your procedures and the fair assessment of postings with potentially dangerous links.

Hello @keys-defender @keys-defender @hive-defender @gaottantacinque :) Today I got a strange influx of downvotes on my most recent blog from Keys Defender and it was among a slew of accounts that look sketchy, among them one called Bot Test. Some are even dead/cancelled accounts and I visited and checked each one. I'm writing to ask if these downvotes were legitimate authentic downvotes by Keys Defender or if something else is going on. Thanks if you have a chance to look into it.

please see my last post

Why the downvote on my recent post?
