It's been a hell of a busy day for me, something I haven't had for a while, and it actually started yesterday evening at about 6 PM when I got a call from a friend of mine asking me to drive with him to a city 200 km away from our town to pick his brother from the airport. I accepted without thinking as we are good friends and knowing that he worked yesterday I asked to drive.

We got to [Timisoara](https://steemit.com/photography/@acesontop/nice-to-see-you-again-timisoara), at the airport we were supposed to pick *the young man* up at about 9 PM and then after, we headed to eat something at the mall. Similar to what we always do when getting to that city to pick someone from the airport. Although we didn't spent too much time at the mall we arrived home at about 1 AM, and I, being somewhat of a night owl I couldn't fall asleep till about 3 AM, and woke up at about 8...

Didn't sleep too well because I forgot the heating on max level before getting to bed and I hate sleeping in too warm places. I got used to sleeping in cool rooms ever since I was in Norway and I like that a lot. This guy that we picked from the airport is planning to move back home after living for about 15 years in Italy, and he plans on opening a restaurant, so he needs a bit of help. 

He also needs to change his driver licence and doing the paper work for a new company and changing a driver license is a lot of trouble. Bureaucracy in Romania is still *top level* bullshit and I hate it, but I had to help him. I was very tired after the almost sleepless night, but I managed to get the day done. I also noticed that I'm no longer feeling like in my mid twenties when it comes to *such hangovers*. I've got old...

I spent quite some time on eSteem reading posts today and on twitter as well, while waiting in line, and one topic that got my attention is regarding Exyle and his supposed support towards Justin Sun's Steem Tron shit. I have absolutely no hard feelings against this guy and his decision, and honestly never liked him. Always considered that his posts were over appreciated, curation wise, but was quite a bit amazed to see how *the community* turned 180° against him. By community I mean some of his ex supporters, curators, *nice guys, members of the community*, and other Steem fanatics. 

Well... if you guys wanna get upset on more *Tron transition supporters* I have some suggestions for you and one is appics. The chicks welcomed Justin Sun, arms open, right from the first day but, some of you still using their app, because it's easy to use, it doesn't require too much effort to put in such posts, and it seems working on IOS. Nothing against them either, just wanted to mention some other Trons Steem supporters... You have to appreciate though that exyle, from what I remember, embraced right from the beginning the Tron Steem idea and was pretty transparent about it. Don't like it, move on.

![20200306_132527-01.jpeg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmcamfkQSzxuXUAV9qTrSQriY7xcdusHkTpJhEufU53B49/20200306_132527-01.jpeg)

But for the ones throwing shit at him now, due to this whole witness voting drama, remember that probably in the past you might have licked his ass, when the weather was warm, milk poured out of the Steem cow, we were a peaceful and easy going community, and no Tron was threatening us. You don't see the character of people and their true faces during calm water times though. No sir, it's storms that reveal sharp teeth, and remove masks quite easily. Some have really scary teeth, as I have noticed lately, and I would call them *undercover wolves*. 

I honestly don't want Steem to be ruined. That's far away from my belief, but if it survives, it really needs *rules and regulations* on top of its decentralized ass, because we're not yet ready for full decentralization, heart, body and mind. In the case of a resurrected Steem, I would definitely want to see *auto votes a history*, a posting limit a day, bans on abusers and... some sort of a anti circle jerking pill. Sounds too centralized? Maybe yes, maybe not. The way I see it, and the way it currently works, Steem is pretty flawed at the moment.

The chances of the hardfork, planned by Justin Sun, that would make Steem a living hell are diminishing, as in the top 20 witnesses chart there are already 11 *true steemians*, but if we ever go to hell I hope to see all the big self upvoters there, are the circle jerkers, the haejins and other related abusers and all the whale ass lickers that played false parts of community members, when actually being simply milkers oriented only towards their profits and nothing more. About two days ago I saw two or three post of some ex Steemit devs announcing their resignation. They basically *tweeted* on Steemit and got almost $200 in upvotes.

If I would have done that one year ago my ass would have been on fire and the *Greta Thunberg* of Steem would have shouted at me: **how dare you**! Well, nobody said them anything and that's discrimination in my opinion. If you have such a big announcement to make, at least dedicate 10 minutes to it and write a few words for *the community*. If you really don't feel like bothering on explanation, at least decline payout. That's an option too...

You wanna know why they quit? Because they realized Justin wasn't intending in developing Steemit anymore and they were basically wasting time waiting for him to kick them out. This way they *went live again* as heroes of the community under too much applause for their actions. If they were such good community members and they were that tech savvy *why didn't they came out with the proposal to fork out Steemit's stake two or three years ago?* By *they* I don't refer just o the two or three devs that resigned from Steemit, but other witnesses and large stake holders as well. 

Because the milking was good, Steemfests were warm places to hangout where they got a lot of attention upon them, and they got fooled by Ned. That's why. Nobody is looking at this whole situation around Steem from this perspective, but the reality is, that the threat was always here. Probably some like bernisesanders thought about it long time ago but they didn't get any attention and neither any type of support in fighting abuse either. The milking was good and the weather was nice. Period. Now they're stake is threatened to become just pennies and suddenly we have a war that requires a community. 

The milking might come to an end and we're in the middle of a hell of a storm... but it might be too late. Anyway, if Steem survives I really hope some polishing to it will be done and some consultations with the community would be required, if we are still a community. By the way, did you know that *"The Federal Reserve has imposed a quarantine on physical U.S. currency it receives from Asia"*? I didn't know they still take cash in 2020... What are they up to?

Nici nu iti poti imagina cum le zic in Romana 😁, dar nu m-ar intelege nimeni... Nu am lins niciodata pe nimeni in cur si nu o voi face pentru a obtine ceva. Pur si simplu nu pot. Am incercat si am patit la fel ca si cu fumatul 😁. Un gust aiurea fara rost.
