I remeber when I joined Steem about 2 years ago, and there was a big hurrah around tag abuse. Specifically people were getting annoyed with people using popular tags to try boost their post, often using a tag that didnt even slightly relate to their content. The classic example was the #introduceyourself tag which was often frequented by manual curators. Fast forward to today and we have come along way, and now we have many different 'tribes' - esentially cloned of Steemit but focussed on a specific area such as sports, music or investing and rewarding users in their native tokens. Although I am new to tribes and mainly interested in sports and music, I am concerned people will start to abuse these tags with irrelevant content in an attempt to earn their tokens. This could be a disaster and lead to shit and irrelevant content. I have noticed a few posts that are barely related to the overall topic and have started to think about flagging them for tag abuse in an attempt to keep the tribes 'clean'. ![pexels-photo-2881206.jpeg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmPMHrWCHQisa1EHd4X2ypbRaMcpJUZjya65AVP3R8Ea9U/pexels-photo-2881206.jpeg) I am still new to the idea of the 'free flags', but feel that anything that is a shitpost or clearly trying to extract rewards without adding value to the specific tribe should be considered for flagging. I want these tribes to stay on topic and become like a flourishing news feed around a certain topic area. I would love feedback on this idea, and also sharing of how you are using your new flags.
