It does have plenty to offer, it's just not easy. I promise you, some days... Not fun. The good days and good times help balance it out.

We can disagree and still be cool. Maybe my wording is wrong. Handout doesn't sound good. I think I'm against it because I feel it's unsustainable. I'd really prefer to see more money coming in the door than what could potentially go out the door. That's how we make money here, when you look at the entire picture and not just your own blog. Did you catch this post? I explained a few things there I feel are important. We don't need to talk about that post here though.

I agree with you, what you're saying would help. I just don't feel it's sustainable. If we can't extend the lifespan of this project, there is no mass adoption.

Was part of a peaceful and respectful conversation I was having with another member of this community.

You downvoted it, because you want to be a troll. This is a place of business. It's not a place where adults come to act like children. I assume you're an adult, but you're acting like a child.

I've had enough of you folks being trolls and tormenting GOOD PEOPLE. I know all your names. I've been watching closely. Enough is enough. I did nothing wrong to you. You got my attention with that downvote though. So here, have one back.

And don't forget: After receiving this downvote, your next move will be to act like a victim. You will pretend I've done something wrong. You will act like you didn't flag that comment of mine for no reason. You will act like you're NOT being a troll. You will act like you're not part of a small group of trolls who all act like you when they troll. You will recieve this downvote and cry and cry and cry and act like the whole world is against you. Now this message is here, before I give you the downvote, so you can look extra foolish when you begin to tell your lies. Once I see the lies, I will direct EVERYONE to this comment to prove to everyone how much of a piece of shit you want to be.

And I'm glad you're having problems trying to achieve simplicity. Have a nice day.

Very interesting that you should call this a place of business, some keep calling it a public social media platform without making any reference to business. Some of the oldest members of this community act like children and flag folks to bits and then act surprised when they get a dose of their own medicine. I have no issue with retaliatory flags such as this one, but I do have an issue with the tolerance allotted certain characters in this space simply because not enough people have the balls to say anything. As a result we now have more ex-Steemians than Steemians. I mention this because of the inference that you'd like to see mass adoption, which at this rate is not likely to happen barring a miracle or disaster. As a business, this place has also succeeded at being a failure, who wants to be here when their original work gets flagged to zero? Why would anyone spend time creating content just to get rewarded for staking their Steem? Why would anyone invest in Steem if self votes can't even beat inflation?

Who's trolling who? Nobody cares as long as they get theirs, and I think that is a large portion of the problem. Have a good one! Now watch the flags roll in :)

I'm not going to downvote you for having an opinion. Especially when it's a parroted opinion.

The trolls will downvote opinions though, for no reason. They treat people like trash.

I know those flags are annoying. So treat the trash like trash. Not everyone else.

Why would you, and them, even need to be told that? It's common sense to treat others how you'd want to be treated. I don't go around downvoting people any time they make me feel emotional. It takes a thick skin to be here. These trolls are made of glass. If something shitty happens to them, it's their own damn fault. I can prove it as well. Everything is locked in nicely on this blockchain. Everyone can see how the people who hate the flags most act.. ACT. It's all an act. Just pushing your agenda. It's all a farce.

I've been downvoted. A long time ago, when I first started. The biggest account the platform downvoted me twice, for writing comedy that played with the word FUCK. I didn't cry about it. I didn't act like a child. I wrote about it, peacefully, made some money, and carried on with my life, business as usual. It's not hard to NOT be a baby. Try telling that to a troll who is INTENTIONALLY trying to get themselves flagged so they go around saying flags are bad though. It's in one ear and out the other, because what they're doing is all an ACT. Just putting on a show. That show will NEVER get rid of downvotes. It only proves why the place needs them.

I wasn't suggesting you'd be the one flagging me.
For me the flagging didn't stop at an opinion, but continued for weeks on every open post and comment so now I answer in the language spoken to, and I'll flag for association in the same vein as was done to me. It doesn't take thick skin to be here, in my opinion it takes a fat wallet and connections instead. The flags may be needed, but ignoring the fact they are also being abused continues to be ignored. Our opinions will continue to differ so I thank you for your time. Take care.

I act responsibly, or at least try to. Certainly not perfect.

I don't support the concept of auto-downvotes. I think it solves nothing. People need to talk things out, respectfully. But you do know most clubs have a bouncer at the door, and for a very good reason. Some people get kicked out, for life. It's usually because of something they did. Anti-social behavior, typically. That's truth. That's reality. Tough pill to swallow for some. But I get how people do learn and believe in second chances.

As for the fat wallet and connections. I started with nothing and knew nobody. I've done alright.

You take care as well.
