RE: Fix HIVE with One Weird Trick that Abusive Flaggers Hate!

in GEMSlast year

An idea whose time has come IMHO.

Thanks, valued-customer. I find it hard to tolerate what's happening here, but I think some folks are too timid to speak out in favor of addressing the problem meaningfully. I'm heartened to see yourself do so! Courage, check, testes, check, one-two, one-two, oops, there's only two of us (figuratively speaking.) Ahh well. I guess it was worth a shot.

Just putting the idea out there might spark the will of right-minded and influential people that'll ultimately end up winning the change we need on the chain. Some folks who've broken through to the other side like to pretend that anyone can make anything happen here, but the true-true says: you got to be one of the ones or else you're just pissing in the wind.

In my mind, the idea in this post is not only unifying but who could be against it save for psychos who experience schadenfreude when someone reacts normally to an abusive flag. These people exist, I've seen it with my own two eyes. Right up there with the epicaricacy are those individuals who will look at a (false) flag or griefing and think that it's a public service because it adds value to their posts.

If we don't fix it, I predict that at some point, we'll get a heavy-hitting YouTube personality who'll get flagged one day, and then they'll proceed to rant to their entire fanbase about the bassackwards culture on HIVE. According to the wise and learned Tracy Morgan: "Bad news travels at the speed of light; (while) good news travels like molasses." The sooner we get it right, the better retention and less potential collateral damage to HIVE's overall reputation.

Because whales extract ~90% of rewards, every flag pays them ~90% of it's value, divided by the number of whales extracting rewards. Strictly financially speaking, they're in favor of every flag not flown on them. However, Steem has motivated them to more consider social values not specifically economic, because they are dependent on those values to an ineffable degree for their financial returns.

Goodwill is difficult to quantify, at best. However, it is enormously undervalued by almost everyone that can't just conjure money out of thin air. Those that can know goodwill is far more valuable than mere money.

Everyone else is playing catch up.

The ste.emcleenr is feeding itself.

BOOM!

When the thunderous echo of a microphone dropping on a stage reverberates throughout a lush green forest, and there's hardly anyone around, did it even make a sound?

Epic observation, and well said too!
