RE: The nonsense that are "Goodbye posts" // Why you shouldnt blame it on STEEM

in #thoughtslast year (edited)

I stopped following him what must have been over a year ago. I didn't care for the constant negativity.

He had stuck around this long! How did it take that long for him to write his goodbye post? How long should we expect him to keep away? Oh, well. I won't be paying attention to that.

Lets be honest here. There was much more Bullshit on Steem before the EIP and no one was doing anything about it. You could not take action and all your efforts were in vain.
So you ignored it. Why waste time on things you cannot change?
You had your own part of Steem you focused on, your own group of people but the bear market is in power in the background and its effects are slowly starting to become noticeable. You dont see it right away because the process is gradual but when you look further behind you, you see it as plain as day.

Spot on. There is much less absolute shit here than there used to be. Whatever shit is left is much more subtle.

I get the impression that this guy thinks the drama that resulted from certain big abuse fighters cleaning the house was the horrible thing that is going to be "the end of Steem."

What this guy used to do was precisely to turn a blind eye to the massive abuse that went on. Now that the house is being cleaned the discomfort caused is too much for him. lol

I know several deserving authors whose work has always been top notch who'd get a pittance before the EIP. Now they're rewarded well. I've been personally involved in removing rewards from several abusers on Trending and on the down low. What this guy is saying is utterly ridiculous. If you don't have the stomach for an immature platform like Steem where all the drama is out in the open, then you should stay out. But, then again, you won't be entitled to any early adopter advantage, either.

Sort:  

To be fair, he flagged with SFR for some time when we were much smaller.

These goodbye posts are what you would call venting. When you have built up annoyance with certain aspects of Steem and dont know how to let go and try and make the best of it stuff like this happens.
Its an emotional response. Otherwise they would just stop posting and not care.

I got the same impression. I had a problem with the EIP just like he did but my problem was that i didnt believe that it would happen what has happened. I didnt think whales would fight abuse to this degree.
But i accepted change and liked what i see in the end.
The folks that complain about the flagging, (imo, there is not enough flagging) complain because they can. Because those that downvote (outside a few rotten apples) genuinely care about STEEM and are willing to listen.
You didnt have that before. The bot owners, the circlejerkers, the abusers, those that went around harassing others wouldnt give two shits about what you had to say. Theyd flag you for saying anything.
Now most of those are gone.
Because the guys that are cleaning the platform are willing to listen, you get more convos and it appears that there is more drama, more problems, and that everything is worse.
That is simply not true. People having discussions is not a bad thing.

But, then again, you won't be entitled to any early adopter advantage, either.

Agreed.
