RE: Decentralized Standards Of Behavior | Ranty STEEM Freewrite

in #steemlast year

Downvoting for reward disagreement was in the original vision of Steem. I think basic etiquette means you should tell someome why you are downvoting if no one else mentioned it and you feel they are genuinely confused.

I alsonthinknthere is nothing wrong with people banding together and deciding on their own standards. Expecting a hardfork is rather silly though.

I usually do if both those conditions are met.

Agreed, people should band together. But they should also decide if using VP to reverse downvotes is worth it or not when they develop a program. How else could you nerf downvotes in such a way?

This is key. Eventually, they are going to be defending indefensible stuff. However, I think the appeal is limited because no one outside the block is going to vote for people in the block and downvotes will hurt them. They are better to avoid negative attention.
