The #SupportHonesty Challenge

My response to reading the related post of @newageinv was immediate. I dropped what I was working on to write this post.

Response Challenge

This challenge covers what any of my regular readers know I consider the single greatest bane of my experience on the Steem blockchain.

"a source of harm or ruin"

Merriam-Webster dictionary - Definition of Bane

I won't take the time to recreate what I have written in the past here, but ... It makes me


to witness and experience the injustice made possible by abusive downvoting and the associated "flag wars."

I am well aware, on top of that, of the abusive use of the Steem pool, so it was encouraging to me to see this challenge issued.

My simple and supporting pledge:

  • I always have and will continue to do my best to support the Steem blockchain. Both in contributing quality content and encouraging and supporting the efforts of other individuals and communities doing the same.

  • I will contribute what I can to the efforts of anyone working to curb the abuses cited above which, from a number of posts I've read (@theycallmedan, @tarakp among others ...), are going to "launch" upon the successful completion of HF21.

It takes resources to accomplish anything, so "putting my money where my mouth is" this morning I have invested in some additional STEEM to add to my account balance and apply towards this challenge, as seems best to me based on what I learn of follow-up efforts in support of it.

Hopefully this challenge plays an important role in getting the gears turning toward generating some momentum in addressing major shortcomings of the Steem blockchain. And, in so doing, results in a considerable improvement to the value of STEEM and SBD, for the sake of us all.

Thank you @guiltyparties for the inspiration behind your original post and to you @newageinv for connecting me [full sequence / timeline below] to this initiative.

I am going to now pass on this challenge to - @asgarth, @steemchiller, @paulag, @thedarkhorse, @crypto.piotr, @trincowski, and @abitcoinskeptic.

I am a big advocate for SteemPeak, so hoping, after careful consideration by the project team, that the "blacklist header" details in the original post of @guiltyparties is a future feature for its large base of users. I would also personally like to see a corresponding "whitelist header" incorporated as well.

According to the original post ...

"Even a junior developer should have no problem integrating it within an hour."

... it is not a large coding project, to add this functionality.

Not sure how it might be incorporated into my favorite app of all - SteemWorld - but @steemchiller will certainly know if it makes any sense.

Looking forward to seeing how response to this challenge goes. From this Steemian's perspective, effectively addressing these issues can't come soon enough!

Until "next time," all the best to you for a better tomorrow, as we all work together to build up our Steem Communities and increase the value of the Steem blockchain! 👍 😊

P.S. In addition to the seven accounts listed above, I also would like to draw this challenge to the attention of some other Steemians, who I would like to at least know about this challenge - @daan, @danielsaori, @delishtreats, @geekgirl, @jackmiller, @lynncoyle1, @macoolette, @meno, @novacadian, @rawutah, @simplymike, @soyrosa, and @veryspider. Who may then choose to spread the word however seems best to them, if they see any value in doing so.

Thanks for the quick turnaround! Adding some more Steem was a great addition indeed as it is the best demonstration to committing to the process of long term value creation. Look forward to what we will continue to create!

Certainly @newageinv. Thanks again for the "call out." As for this ...

"Adding some more Steem was a great addition ..."

... we'll see (hard to resist the lowest price per BTC since I first invested in Aug 2017 ...). It may simply mean I need professional help ... 😉

Seriously, it violated my determination not to buy any more, made some time back. While I am still actively involved "in here," I would like to see some "proof of delivery," before feeling more at peace with increasing my stake. There are a lot of other blockchain investments to make, which at the moment at least, make far more sense to me ...

But the one thing the Steem blockchain has the others don't is an opportunity to engage with others all over the world, so thanks again! 👍

This posts feels as if I am hit with a hammer on the head. I read a bit about the flagging, flagging wars weree mentioned as well and at the moment it feels many leave steel(it) for what it is.

For some reason I do not get a clear picture of what is going on.

Hmmm, this @wakeupkitty ...

"... feels as if I am hit with a hammer on the head."

... certainly wasn't my intention. I have used some strong words, perhaps, to express how I have felt in the past about the lack of a response to some serious problems I have witnessed and experienced on our Steem blockchain. In my view, we have all suffered some loss of our investment "in here," as a direct result.

Here is an initiative talking about doing something about it, rather than just taking about it, or ignoring it altogether. We'll see soon enough ...

Hope this clarifies for you a bit. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I hope you and yours are enjoying a nice day! 😊

I know, I somehow missed what is going on and you are right. Time to act. 💕

What a good challenge @roleerob! This community could always use more and more positive initiatives :) Thanks for letting me in on it!

Certainly @lynncoyle1. You are an influential person "in here," so pleased to hear you view this in a positive light. Hopefully, once HF21 is in place, we'll see some follow-up on this initiative! 😊

I'll definitely try to write a post about this myself! Great initiative, it's desperately needed around here!

Re-steemed in the meantime ;)

Yes sir ...

"'s desperately needed around here!"

... no question about it.

Thank you @daan! 👍
