I've been doing my modest part in removing pending rewards from some posts in Trending since HF 21. Trending is a lot cleaner now than it used to be but it's not satisfactory, yet. There are still very mediocre posts there from the same authors regularly pulling over $50 per post and occupying Trending. My last post before this attracted a big fat downvote from a certain non-Naruto running professor from the land of bulgogi. While he, too, has the right to reallocate pending rewards from any posts he considers over-rewarded, that particular downvote got me curious.
This is who the good professor has downvoted today.
If you look at who has been downvoting his posts, they are largely the same people who have been downvoting his posts. The accounts he has downvoted this week have mostly been @curangel and developers and community activists.
If you delegate to @curangel, you get to use an interface through which you can suggest posts to be downvoted. You submit an URL of the post you want to be downvoted and a reason for the downvote. The curation team reviews all suggestions and makes a decision. The downvoting power used is commensurate to your delegation. @curangel upvotes original quality posts hand picked by its curators and gives 80% of the curation rewards to delegators and the rest to the curators. @curangel has 615,000 SP at present time. I just checked its curation efficiency on SteemWorld. It's slightly better than 50% of its vote value, which means that delegating to it is as profitable as curating yourself with 40% efficiency. That is not bad. By delegating to @curangel you will do a service to the whole platform including yourself as a Steem Power holder. I'd love to see the project have over a million SP in delegations soon. If you have no time to curate yourself and you want a decent return without resorting to selfish maximization, I recommend that you delegate to @curangel.
