I've been lurking around for a while now. I'm not gone, I'm just observing. That being said, It's pretty sad to see what the trending "people fought for" has turned into. It's just a bunch of SBD potato posts, and burnposts with wrong dates.
As a well known Steemian once said: "If Trending is our showcase window, then we should do a better job" - I guess, we "fixed it"? No?
Sorry to be bitter about it, but, it does seem like those who fought the bots tooth and nail, forgot to take into account the opposing extreme.
As I said. I'm still around, still lurking, trying to build a new life in a new place, hopefully with a better attitude.
