Don't be too disconcerted, most probably haven't seen the post yet. It's also been heavily discussed not too long ago in @ura-soul 's post, so they may have already expressed their opinion there. 

Like @timcliff, I'd prefer one of the other methods like a "measurement of activity" to determine "aliveness" or votes just periodically needing to be renewed within some period of time versus outright vote-decay. Vote decay as a particular method for addressing this issue seems a bit "strange" to me and I think it would be unexpected behavior for many Steem users.

It's a type of vote decay with x time and 100% decay. Both have their plus and minus. I prefer gradual vote decay.

Edit: Is that the post you're talking about because if so you're the only top witness who commented there?

Yes, as I recall, only @blocktrades and @timcliff commented on this publicly from the top 20. In reality more than a few of the top 20 literally never post on the blockchain at all.

IIRC, he posted several related posts, so I'm probably thinking of another one. There's also been discussions in slack, etc, so it's easy for me to get mixed up when I heard what, but I think most witnesses are familiar with the concepts from previous discussions.

I expect some kind of change will be made to address the potential for voters dying or losing keys at some point, but my guess is that it's not on the immediate radar for change (I'm not even sure yet that the curation changes are, and those are a pretty pressing concern, IMO).

Gradual vote decay would have significant performance impact. The blockchain would need to reconsider the age of every single individual vote to recalculate the totals.

> Don't be too disconcerted, most probably haven't seen the post yet

Why would we see it? Because he bidbotted it up? I think I will decline to respond at all specifically for that reason.

@teamsteem, if you want me to pay attention to your "Trending" posts don't bidbot them. As long as you do don't expect engagement from me but I'll be happy to engage by downvoting them.

I'll ask you to please not downvote my posts specifically. I don't see this as warranted. I haven't asked anyone to answer. People that wanted to answer have answered. Me stating my concerns is a neutral expression of how I feel and in no way a form of denigration of anyone or their actions. Everyone is entitled to their own reflections. I haven't disrespected anyone. 

I think the witness should care about the trending page and should keep tab on it thus why I think they should have seen it.

Noted.

> I don't see this as warranted

I disagree. I see them as grossly overrewarded. If you hadn't bidbotted them up to the tune of hundreds of STEEM and they gained their votes organically them maybe they wouldn't be.

> I think the witness should care about the trending page and should keep tab on it

I would be more likely to do so if people including you didn't buy their way onto it. As things stand now the voting system is severely broken and the Trending page is near-meaningless.
