RE: BUILDTEAM PSA: Calling on the Steem Community to Vote Witnesses!

in #buildteamlast year

I'll vote for more witnesses as soon as they stop the childish .444 bullshit.

Sort:  

" the childish .444 bullshit."

What does this mean please?

Posted via Steemleo

some witnesses are running version 0.22.4444 as "protest". 4444 means death in china, so it's childish and disrespectful, no matter how angry you are. In my opinion.

great, will vote for you later! :)

Yes correct, 4444 is death!

Is it fact the 4444 in this instance is to be taken as death? 4444 can mean a lot of other things, depending on who you ask, and where they're from.

The number 4 (四, pinyin: sì; Cantonese Yale: sei) is considered an unlucky number in Chinese because it is nearly homophonous to the word "death" (死 pinyin: sǐ; Cantonese Yale: séi).

Chinese numerology - Wikipediaen.wikipedia.org › wiki › Chinese_numerology
4 to the Chinese is like the number 13 is to Europe and the U.S.
Most hotels don't have a 4th floor etc.

I have changed it, I also don't want to offend potential asian community allies.

thanks, will vote later!

Thanks for the insight, I am proposing that internally now.

Agree on the childish thing.

Laughing at the predicament we find ourselves in, now that's completely different story! lol
