Bad Whales Pt.2 @bernisanders Flagging Posts for No Real Reason
http://i.imgur.com/gLK3bZW.jpg

@bernisanders just flagged one of my last posts because he just wants to be that kind of low consciousness being.

If anyone wants to get rid of bots for everyone on the platform, please do. But targeting me for getting bots is lame when @xeldal and other autovoters vote for others as well.

Stop flagging me and grow up, or I'll keep exposing your bullshit behavior, ok?

I believe I've just exposed YOU for taking advantage of a voting bot that will vote on any of your posts.  You know that not matter what you post, including transcriptions of the daily news, you'll get votes from @xeldal and @enki.  I don't blame you for taking advantage, but it's pretty low given all of your rants.  Don't you think?

Again, good try.  If you didn't have those bot votes, you wouldn't be earning nearly what you are and you know it.

Not his fault people use bots and have a script to automatically vote on his posts. Should be taking it out the people that vote, it's not because of posts or @krnel. It's  the voters themselves, the system, and having gamification with monetary rewards.

I just spoke with @xeldal and he will adjust his bot to not allow people to continue to take advantage like we're seeing here.

My flags are the same as not having a bot voting on the posts...I really don't see the problem with negating votes where someone has taken advantage.

The @berniesanders hate is strong here, but they indeed have a checkered past as a positive Steemit community member so I get why folks feel that way.

Edit: I have no reason to personally distrust @berniesanders, but the general community seems to find the account behavior strange

Eh, it's really just the ones who I've never voted on or flagged for various reasons.  If you actually look at the flagging data on steemdb.com you'll see most claims are highly exaggerated.  How often do you see any real data to back up these claims?

Here you go, from https://steemdb.com/labs/flags :
![pimage](https://puu.sh/uhcV4/d785c46ca0.png)

Take a look at the accounts I've flagged there, you'll clearly see why I did so.

Hey, @berniesanders I think it's just a waste of time to reply to @krnel posts because how I see it, he is just too busy to make money and he forgot the most important thing about a social media platform that is to socialize with people, or at least with people who are commenting on his posts. I think is just disrespectfulโ€‹ for the people who are commenting on his posts and for that I'm not going to be his follower anymore, so @krnel don't botherโ€‹ to reply because I will not write you back anymore. 
And if you think that you didn't lose much, well I'm sure that if people will feel the way I feel will do the same. I'm curiousโ€‹ how many of your robots will write you a comment and what you will do if they will stop voting your posts? 
Stop complaining about that someone flagged few of your posts because even so, you are making a lot more money than a lot of people!

Hehe... funny how absolutes are usually  wrong like "Never".   You've voted on me, yet I suspected it might be the people you have Curate for you if you still do that.

Yet I don't need your votes.   I'd be fine with no votes if it got people like you to stop attacking people.

Oh and anyone else reading this... he often says he didn't even read what he flagged.


EDIT: Though you have NEVER flagged a post of mine, only comments.   That is primarily because I don't write about this to defend myself.   I write about it to defend the community.

Don't worry Krnel, after Steeminc changes N SQUARED to linear, then the whales will be more powerless against you, and you will be able to milk maximize your daily STEEM harvest by posting 10-20 posts per day!

Personally I love the flags, nails, etc.  Always have always will.  I would flag this comment if I could (fork that STEEMINC!).  Who would have thought that they would lift the spam filter just to try to convince more people to show up?

Besides me 10 months ago of course?

Crabs in a bucket, this is actually mentioned in the whitepaper.

>The Story of the Crab Bucket

>A man was walking along the beach and saw another man fishing in the surf with a bait bucket beside him. As he drew closer, he saw that the bait bucket had no lid and had live crabs inside.

>"Why don't you cover your bait bucket so the crabs won't escape?", he said.

>"You don't understand.", the man replied, "If there is one crab in the bucket it would surely crawl out very quickly. However, when there are many crabs in the bucket, if one tries to crawl up the side, the others grab hold of it and pull it back down so that it will share the same fate as the rest of them."

>So it is with people. If one tries to do something different, get better grades, improve herself, escape her environment, or dream big dreams, other people will try to drag her back down to share their fate.

I think it's worth also quoting in part the text that proceeds and follows

> The only โ€œproblemโ€ with crab mentality is when people w rongly believe someone is profiting at everyone else's expense.

> Eliminating โ€œabuseโ€ is not possible and shouldnโ€™t be the goal. Even those who are attempting to โ€œabuseโ€ the system are still doing work. [...] All that is necessary is to ensure that abuse isnโ€™t so rampant that it undermines the incentive to do real work in support of the community and its currency.

Or, there's that famous quote that goes something like "It's not enough to succeed, your friends must also fail".

@personz "All that is necessary is to ensure that abuse isnโ€™t so rampant that it undermines the incentive to do real work in support of the community and its currency." 
I think that is going on presently, is it not? Flagging sure is discouraging and how is that not undermining incentive?

@ebryans ·
There are few things which I find reprehensible on steemit I am pleased to say! One I do find deplorable is the intra-voting which goes on amongst the whales. This creates rewards in an undeserving fashion whilst impeding the decentralisation of the platform, dissuading new users and reducing the price of steem.
I have no personal axe to grind with @berniesanders, he has been good enough to vote on some of my work of late for which I am grateful, as do you, @krnel for which I am equally grateful. Whale antics have only one place to be sorted out and that is in the whale weigh station.
A PM system as we have on steemit.chat would mitigate the need to rail, though I understand that flags are a pain. Minnows suffer the dreaded flag worse than most and we get scant notice when we bring it up.
I received a whale flag on a post just after it was posted. It killed the post. It turned out that the flag was made in error ... sorry! A bit like a US drone attack's effort to make amends.
Less votes, minimum 50% and no flags - but we need to be able to put a mark on a post if it is plagiarism or a blatant C&P.

Instead of ""exposing your bullshit behavior"" @krnel, you could maybe try to  post different kind of content, looks like kindergarten , or don't be too serious about it, take a break, go for a walk, make respiration exercises, or take a small vacation with your Steemit earnings , and come back with original fresh posts ?    hope it can help to cool down your engine

He posts quite a bit of different content.   A lot of it has gotten flagged, and they were well written and food for thought.   He didn't start writing this type of post until he had been attacked quite a few times.

He also made a lot more off of those posts than these, even the ones that were flagged.   So these posts are clearly not about money.   He is also not writing these posts just for himself, he is not saying, Please stop down voting me, but continue to do it to anyone else.

Is @krnel still a Minnow? In my understanding of the Steemclassesโ€“System  he is a dolphin, member of witnesses and nobody killed him. Not in reality, even not in Steemit. He is a quite vital player, strong enough to tell a whale his points of view.

I never really know what a dolphin is.

https://steemd.com/distribution

Shows a chart and it is based off of vests.   On that I am a hero, and have quite aways to go before becoming a superhero.     Yet Minnow, Dolphin, Whale... there are more stages in that than three.  I've thought if Dolphin is a combination of Hero and superhero it might make sense.

@krnel has

Which clearly puts him in the Super Hero category... so yeah he is likely a dolphin.

I will be downvoting this if it still has rewards later as a pointless whine about not earning and a personal attack against another user for voting as he sees fit. Get over yourself.
