I'm being more tongue-in-cheek than serious. You are one I would consider to have earned it.
One thing I like to make it a point is I work for the autovotes I receive whereas you will see some people get on autovoter and then set it on "cruise control" so to speak. I want to show people another way. A path that is fulfilling and work to transform Steem along with my "posse" that the rewards align to that.
Perhaps, we are starting to get there. In the past, we had some challenges (I speak from my experience as flag war veteran. ps @steemitboard / @arcange, can we get flag war medal? jk or am I? 😅) but it seems we are building a new culture.
More importantly, a culture that is more viable to those on the outside. This imo is crucial for mass adoption. Showing a modicum of fairness and making those that cheat face risks they had not experienced before.
