It is funny to see so many Hive people feel the urge to reply and downvote. Really? How come you are not busy on your just created platform? Help people get started, engage with everyone.
While they scream to high heaven about freedom of speech, they don't exercise it themselves at all. Things have been wrong with Steemit for a long time. Any platform with downvotes enabled will have the negative vibe incorporated.
I am glad I found a friendly, supportive, engaged community on Whaleshares.io. No downvotes, no flagging, just a simple live and let live approach. I dare everyone to try it.
