<sub>*Yes this will clearly going to be a rant post and because of that I’m going to send a portion of the rewards to the @Steem.Dao, as I feel it’s a good way to distribute rewards to something that adds value on a posts while auto votes are trying to find their balance. I haven’t decided the percentage yet... I’ll see how long and ranty this gets.* 😄</sub>

<br>
<br>

## So, back to the topic at hand - Downvotes. 

I’m a big fan of downvotes, and always have been. I feel they are important to balancing a shared reward pool, and when used correctly, they are simply a way to distribute that inflation to where stake holders see fit -just like upvotes. 

Clearly not everyone uses them correctly, we see that every day. Many use them for revenge, for opinion or to simply try to bully people ... that’s just the world we live in. 

The way to help normalize downvotes and guide our community to a healthy culture around them in my opinion is for people to use them, actively. While also being sure to counter those that are being used maliciously. 

I feel that last part is pretty important for normalizing them, and have been trying to actively do my part to counter those I feel are unjust, but it has to be a group effort to be truly effective.. and we aren’t there yet. 

This will take time to find a balance, that’s just the way it goes. 

<br>
<br>
## But what about those who literally lose their fucking minds when they receive one?
I think most here are familiar with this.. no? Someone receives a downvote, possibly a malicious one, and they lose it. They rage, they rant.. they go off the deep-end. 

In fact there are are few that have turned into full on trolls and started harassing, spamming, threatening and pretty much doing anything in their power to cause harm.. 
<br>
**And some apparently think they are justified in doing so.**
<br>
*Well they were normal before they got that downvote. It’s not their fault.*
<br>
**Yes it fucking is.**
<br>
It is their fault. It is 100% their fault that a downvote turned them into a toxic human being who wants to cause harm through any means possible, and saying otherwise makes you part of the problem. 

I don’t care if someone was mean to them, and apparently no one helped them to counter that mean-ness. That is the shittiest excuse I have ever heard for such behavior, and the fact that so many seem to think it’s a valid excuse makes me question our ability as a community to find a balance and create a culture anyone would want to be a part of. 

Just like I don’t support or make excuses for malicious downvotes, I won’t do so for an individuals actions... *cause that downvote hurt them that one day.*


<br>
<br>
## Finding that balance
Some people are fragile and they feel physically wounded by a downvote.. and will still talk about it years later. I feel this is because downvotes were never “normal” here and therefore they were always personal. 

I think we are beginning to attempt the normalization of them, and that will take time. I also believe it requires not only the use of downvotes, but the countering of those used incorrectly.. whether there is a “reward” for them or not. 

Yes you lose CR when countering downvotes.. but the value it adds to the culture of this community is pretty important imo. 

I hope to see more of this happening, as I think it’s important. **So if you are someone who is receiving malicious downvotes for retaliation or otherwise, feel free to reach out and I’ll do my best to help.**

<br>
<br>
## But let’s stop making excuses 
Some people are insane and thrive on hurting others, that’s just the world we live. But saying this behavior is understandable due to a downvote they received is the most absurd thing I’ve ever heard in my life.. and I’ve heard a lot of stupid shit.

There is no excuse for that behavior, and should not be tolerated from the community. Sure we are all adults and we need to have thick skin and put our big boy pants on, and I do every day.. but I expect the same from those who receive a downvote - whether justified or not. 

If receiving a downvote physically hurts you, perhaps you need to spend a few more minutes in the real world.. as it’s not made of bubble wrap. And if receiving one turns you into a psychopath, you were one already. I just don’t feel for you, sorry.

<br>
<br>
## Community working together to change a culture
We have had a long time of a “anything goes” mentality, and changing that will take time. This will also take good examples and the community coming together as well.

 So while I encourage everyone to use their downvotes in constructive ways, I also hope we can actively help to counter those used incorrectly. And I’m here to help in any way I can. 

<br>
But I also think we need to stop making excuses for psychopaths... *jus sayin.*

<br>

**—- end of rant —-**

<br>
Much Love and Steem On,

Justine

It’s quite amazing the response some have to them. I know you have seen your share of crazy. 

I get that online bullying is thing and if the downvotes come with harassment, I totally get how it can affect people.. but to then go full on whacko and suggest physical harm is just beyond me. 

This world is a crazy place.

The biggest problems with downvotes for me is when its not explained.

Like, what is wrong with my post? What did I do wrong? Did I use a wrong tag? Etc :D

There shouldn't need to be any explanation. The value is higher than a downvoter thinks it should be. That's it. Of course not everyone uses it this way, and if that's the case they usually say something more. Usually.

There should be, because not everything is about rewards.

Zakuu warned me that I was using a wrong tag that had nothing to do with my post and I removed the tag :) Otherwise it would have gotten downvoted and the post was around 0.2$ :)

And I have gotten downvoted on actifit post with 0.3 - 0.3$ because I told someone why they got a downvote from marky x)

The Australian downvote culture does indeed lead to bringing shame upon the family and the only way it can be appeased is through an honour killing or being forced to drink a beer that has been sitting out in the sun.

It appears that a lot of stakeholders that get upset about the downvotes don't know why the downvote exists. What they dont know turns to threat and boom they bring out guns. 

Anyway I'm concerned about actifit users who are used to exchanging their afit tokens for upvotes for their low effort based activity posts. 

The mandate better gets to actifit headquaters.

I hadn’t realized they were doing that, thanks for the heads up 🙂

Yes I think for many it’s a misunderstanding of what downvotes are for, probably stemming from a misunderstanding of the rewards pool itself. This is something that will unfortunately take time for everyone to grasp.

The reward pool yes and how proper promotion can be done, i.e reserving a certain percentage of the rewards to dao or something, make it not profitable but still promoted. Sigh but then again there's the trending factor that is hoped to being reserved for manually curated posts. Just my thoughts.

Anyway I guess this is that phase going forward,...

Omg.. if I got a cookie like that with every downvote I would be so happy.. this is how we change it! Quick - figure out how to build that  Willy Wonka machine that sent stuff through the tv. People will be begging for downvotes!!! Let’s do this!

Here is my down vote story sad but true. :) I'm a very small fish around here. I used my first down vote the other day. I joined in with about 20 other individuals to down vote a post that looked to be overvalued. Not a bad post. In fact it was similar to one I had running at the time. It was just garnering about 30x more then mine. Maybe frustration got the better of me, but retaliation by this individual was swift and my little $2.00 post was wiped out. 

So I am not sure that I should be trying to down vote anyone. I get the feeling maybe I should just stay in my own lane and leave the down voting to the professionals. :)

And this is the countering I was discussing, that return downvote is revenge and the community should rally around to counter them. 

I’ve gotten quite a few of them myself but luckily it doesn’t wipe me out.. but yeah returning a 20cent downvote (in my case) with $15-$20 seems a bit over the top 😄

Yeah, that tends to happen, but retaliatory actions will only hurt the one's reputation who's engaging in such activity. Don't hide in the corner, this is a team effort. No active participant can avoid taking a few hits.

Steem's utility is the ability to draw more from the reward pool. That said, if someone buy's a bunch of stake and uses it to promote their own posts. Then people like you, the **NewSteem Cult**ure are going to teach them a lesson, and that lesson is that they shouldn't have invested.

That the utility of Steem is a lie, and not to buy. Also, I really get a kick out of dumb ass shit like your third tag **"show me where it hurt you,"** the whole idea of using child molestation as a parallel proves that downvotes are not an appropriate thing to normalize.

>"The film's title comes from the phrase **"Show me on the doll where you were touched", often asked of young children who have been the victims of sexual abuse.** The film covers multiple lives of victims and victimizers, sharing the pain of how early childhood traumas can continue throughout adult lives." - [**Wiki**](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/On_the_Doll)

Maybe the downvote posse needs a new metaphor to poke fun at, something less along the lines of child rape. Oh wait, I think I get it.. so the whales are like twisted adults and those with low stake are like defenseless children... and it's funny to fuck them in the ass?

Nope. Yep, that analogy is shit. Try harder.

>"Although a team of psychiatrists predicted that only about one-tenth of 1 percent of the participants in the Milgram obedience research would fully obey the experimenter's commands and administer the highest shock level on the generator, to Milgram's astonishment, 65 percent of the participants (26 out of 40) fully obeyed the experimenter's commands completely, despite the convincing cries of agony from the learner. In addition, all participants who reached 450 volts obeyed the experimenter's command to continue by using the 450-volt switch until the experiment ended. " - [**source**](https://www.mtholyoke.edu/~apkokot/results.htm)

_The experimenter in this scenario are the authors of the hard fork._

Steem’s utility is the ability to pool from an inflation pool? How is that a utility? And how is that something sustainable that people would want to invest in? Hard to take you seriously after that. 

The rest of your comment is just a bit over the top and therefore I’m not really sure how to respond.

So I’ll go with - I’m not a part of any posse, and I’ve been downvoting long before “new Steem” and I don’t think I mentioned small or large accounts here.. so again, I think your comment is quite disgusting for many reasons. 

If you find downvotes something so violent as to point a harmless tag and then bring of child molestation and rape.. and somehow compare them to downvotes and why downvotes shouldn’t be normalized.. then maybe you should go check out whaleshares .. or relax a bit and do some research on what downvotes are and how the rewards pool works. 

Or keep getting up in arms over a tag.. cause that makes a ton of sense. I’m sure someone will come along to leave you a comment, as you seem like their type of recruit. 

Have a wonderful day.

>"How is that a utility?"

If you don't like it, fork it out of the code. Make it so that all votes are equal regardless of your investment.

>"And how is that something sustainable that people would want to invest in?"

I'm not saying it is sustainable, but this is what Steem is, it's how they coded it. In order to give their token a market value, they had to give it a utility and that utility was you can draw more rewards if you own more Steem.

>"The rest of your comment is just a bit over the top and therefore I’m not really sure how to respond."

Well you used the tag "showmewhereithurtyou", it's not just a meme it has a meaning and it stems from how child psychiatrists talk to children who have been molested. Maybe you didn't know what it meant, maybe I jumped the gun assuming that you did. I think the parallel is quite disgusting too, which is why I pointed it out. Did you not know what that combination of words meant?

The more time I spend on Steem, the more I think it is controlled by a small army of self-congratulating psychopaths who have little understanding of human emotions or behavior.

<div class=text-justify>

What's more, STINC added "reward disputes" to their GUI after the first whale wars. These wars caused people to clamor for a fix and put the company under so much pressure that they lazily added it in as an additional catch-all reason for flags. Essentially, what they did was wash their hands of the problem by adding a new rule because there was no way for them to control how people used the flag tool. I think it was a pretty disgusting move because it allows for aberrant behavior.

After the BTC bubble deflated, they moved from not only allowing it but also trying to normalize it by changing the flag to a downvote button and placing it parallel to the upvote button. They're doing this in a desperate attempt to bolster Steem's market value, but they may as well be shooting themselves in the foot or cutting off their nose to spite their face because they're rapidly souring content curators and stakeholders to the platform.

All the while you have the witnesses who signed onto this mess whispering their siren song into your ears "just let it happen," "it will be over soon," muahahaha, "show us on the doll where the whale touched you." Justine didn't say that, but I'm not going to name drop. Name dropping isn't my goal. I aim to shine a light on this issue and let people know how many of the Untermensch content creators view this new downvote culture.

Just imagine going to the antique roadshow and approaching one of their curators/appraisers with an ancient vase from the Ming Dynasty. The curator says it's in good condition, you know, people will pay you top dollar for this, probably somewhere in the realm of $750,000. But I think it's shit. Then the curator takes the vase and smashes it violently on the floor. You look to the ground at the valueless bits and chunks and listen as they walk away laughing maniacally.

That's just one analogy against content disagreement. Content disagreement automatically falls into the reward dispute category because people naturally feel that content they disagree with is "over-rewarded." If you think about it that way, then everything is fair game, opinion flags and all.

There's another argument for why people should live and let live as opposed to downvote, and this is because all stake has merit. The moment a stakeholder thinks their stake doesn't have merit because their upvotes are thwarted, they dump to the market, and this causes the value of steem to go down unless there are buyers ready and willing to altruistically buy stake solely for the purpose to read content all day and curate as a full-time job.

>"Show me on the doll where the tag hurt you, PZ."

<div class=text-justify>

@r0nd0n It hurts my brain that people ("not Justine") can compare downvotes to child molestation, and then say this behavior needs to be normalized. Some of these people also say that you've got issues if you don't agree with this. Well, shit, call me a fucking outlier. I don't think it's cool, and they're just going to drive people away from the platform by pretending it's cool. (a.) I've always seen downvotes as a bit reward rapey, but when people who promote the normalization of downvotes see them as rapey too, and compare them to the worst kind of rape, then you've got to ask yourself: **"Just what in the fuck is going on!?"**

Also, if your going to employ game theory, so the game itself can win, then you don't understand game theory. Game theory is so that you can win, not the game itself. But people get confused, especially large stakeholders. They confuse themselves with the game, because if the game wins, then their stake has value and they can dump it like a hot potato. What they fail to realize is when they shed their humanity in an effort to win, and then show with their actions they don't respect the upvote-autonomy of other stakeholders, then nobody is going to want to become a stakeholder and Steem loses.

I mean at this point, with the **NewSteem Cult**ure they're promoting, what is the selling point? Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of the old Steem. For the most part people just minded their business (save for the special folks) and rewarded content they appreciated with their upvotes. This is very similar to the market, people buy the shit they like and ignore the rest. But now because of some new behavioral modification push we're supposed to buy the stuff we like and go all Gallagher with watermelons on the posts we dislike because reward envy. That's just the stupidest shit I've ever heard of, Jesus Christ. Just imagine if I took that behavior into the real world with me, I'd be triggered by everyone who has a nicer car. Tempted to slash the tires of people with SUVs because "environment".

The author of this post talks about toxic behavior but fails to see the real toxic behavior, and only aims to normalize it. And I know you like to talk about the tragedy of the commons r0n but the truth of the matter is that Steem has always used extra rewards from the pool as a carrot to lure in investors. So, if we don't respect what they do with their upvotes, people will take note, and they won't invest.

Getting back to the tragedy of the commons, as long as their is one witness there will always be Steem and a reward pool that replenishes daily, but without willing stakeholders to steadily prop up the market value by purchasing Steem, then Steem's trade value becomes worthless. Beggers can't be choosy, and you can't have a valuable alt coin without accepting the fact that people who invest in it will either want to make a profit, or a killing.

Thanks for the question r0n, it really made me think. And I think we're really making progress in these sessions, but I see our time is up for today so... We'll see you again next week, same time same place.

[**o7**](https://youtu.be/jR-lQX6t_z8?t=22)

P.S. To answer my own question about: **"Just what in the fuck is going on?"** What's going on is the **NewSteem Cult**ure is trying to make an army of people who will fail the Milgram Experiment. The interesting part about this whole phenomenon is that the teachers get confused when the learners shocks back ("revenge downvotes"), and they see it as a travesty or a crime. It's almost laughable TBH. It's like when the U.S. runs a bombing campaign on a foreign country thousands of miles away and then complains about the "cowardly terrorist" who claps back in the form of an IED after having seen their whole family slaughtered.

If downvotes don't hurt (or cause physical harm), which technically they don't, then the same thing applies to revenge downvotes. You can't have it both ways without being a god damned hypocrite. The harms that downvotes cause are psychological, emotional, and potentially financial depending on how you perceive it. It's closest parallel in the real world are economic sanctions, and most of us know that economic sanctions are tantamount to an act of war.

I'm using downvotes in a constructive ways just to get revenge downvote back by those people who don't want to change their ways and stop extracting every value they can from this blockchain.

I know why I downvote them and I already explained it to them but they don't seem to listen.

It will be a hard fight against abusive downvotes but if we come together we going to change the future of steem.

IF.... WE.... COME... TOGETHER....

Yes, we have an uphill battle for sure and I think we have to come together to be successful. Reach out to me and tell me what you have going on.. I’ve looked and can’t seem to figure it out, maybe I can help. 🙂

I'm a big fan of downvote.  I believe downvoting  cases like plagiarism, spam and tag abuse,  one should leave a comment.

I can agree with that. I don’t think it’s absolutely necessary but it could be used to educate the authors and that could be helpful.

Actually all the instances I’m talking about mostly happened *before* HF21. As I said, now we are working on normalizing them - which will take time.

The issue I have with downvotes is not how they are intended to be used but how they actually are being used. Malicious intent or not, many wish to simply stay away from the related drama... the other aspect is the rabbit hole people go down when looking into the situation at hand say they stumble into one of the many posts out there.... creates a situation to which many are rudely awakened to deep rooted issues linked to human behaviour!

We may get the majority of people to accept and use them correctly but no matter what happens the stain of bad actors will persist .... I know as I was one in real life and not till actively choosing to be a better human being did I recognize it despite being told so!

Looks like they followed the ocdb downvote that was a mistake and when ocdb removed their downvote, the others remained. So ocdb then upvoted you to counter those. Unfortunately this looks like a freak mistake and I’m sorry about that. Would have been nice for ocdb to contact their trail and have them remove, but they did vote to make up for that amount lost.

Downvotes should become a regular daily activity and we should react to one being given here and there. Some makes sense, others are some stupid random accounts (and not sure what you can do about that), but nevertheless if the harm is minimal or null should be clearly disregarded.

> I feel this is because downvotes were never “normal” here and therefore they were always personal.

This has always been the case.  We could probably go back years to see the nasty flag wars of yesterday.  The evidence is there.  Why is everyone seemingly surprised that HF21 has turned some people nasty?

I agree with you that culture needs to be changed here - and that should be the focus, but you don't have to change the codebase to change the culture.  My concern is that by the time downvotes have been "normalised" here, the damaged caused by these "free downvotes" will be irredeemable.

I actually find that the malicious downvotes were worse before free downvotes. And have only seen a few being thrown since then. 

I think it’s extremely important for education and explanations to come along with normalizing downvotes.. as well as countering those malicious ones as well. I’m doing my best to help with that, so if you see some feel free to let me know. Thanks.

First, I think it's incredibly ironic that you received downvotes on this post. I hope you were able to keep your shit together. :)

I like what you say about reacting. I remember looking twice upon receiving my first downvote, then just shrugged it off. Fuck it. I have better things to do.

I tell my children a lot (like.. **a lot**... because they are children, and repetition is good), "You cannot always choose what happens to you, but you can always choose how you react." My 17 year old gets it: don't be a dick. My 13 year old rolls his eyes at me, but, hey, he's 13.

There will be jerks out there in the world that do things just because of whatever reason they have. We need to shrug these people off, not give them notice, and move on with our lives.

Hahahah yeah I receive $20+ downvotes on all my posts lately and had over 1k downvotes distributed to my account previously, so when I say that downvotes are important .. I say that as someone who understands how they feel as well.

(Not to mention the troll that follows me around) 

I agree, sometimes people are assholes and sometimes a downvote is just simply saying they feel those rewards would be better distributed elsewhere. I get it feels personal sometimes but if they were normalized I don’t think it would be the same. And yeah I refuse to make excuses for those who turn bat shit crazy over something like a downvote.. I just don’t feel their actions are justified. 🤷‍♀️

Hello @justineh I hope all is well for you..!!!

Nice to read something from you, well explained and the big thing I can say for now, this is about EDUCATION right..!!well, I think downvotes are a very clear way to clean this amazing ecosystem, I’m talking about myself. When I received 37 downvotes in just one of my publication in the past I understood how important is to understand the ecosystem.

I talked about this when you were taking your first meeting about blockchain..

When I received those downvotes in my content, it waste pasted in my mind very clear, I didn’t take it personal, I just took it as an opinion which were marking me the right way to follow..

I stoped my investment using bots and just continues posting, and waiting for an opportunity to show my content for a wide audience.

I would like to invite you to visit one more time my content and see again what kind of content I am posting.

I understood the Education system..

Have a great time.

Yours, 
Edgar..!!!

<blockquote>It is their fault. It is 100% their fault that a downvote turned them into a toxic human being who wants to cause harm through any means possible, and saying otherwise makes you part of the problem.</blockquote>

I 100% disagree 

Making this statement is like saying there is no such thing as emotions taking over rational behavior in human nature. The reality is that downvotes trigger people like crazy especially when they serve injustice and only a minority of people have are actually capable to overwrite their emotional drives. It's not their fault, it's how the brain works.

@justineh · (edited)
They all apparently started “manually curating”.. I’ve not bought votes on this post or any others and you can see so in my wallet. I also have close to $30 in downvotes on this post (not sure what you mean about “no downvotes from newsteem”), so no I would say I don’t have a free pass. *Also part of this payout is going to the Steem.dao as mentioned.*

Hope that answers your question, feel free to throw a downvote on though.. I encourage it.

Oh I see.  They are "manually curating".  I guess if you are paying the tribute to steem.dao then that would make more sense.  You're also defending the new downvote culture in plenty of other peoples threads too, so I guess that makes you a bit special.

BTW, I don't consider haejin to be newsteem and I don't think anyone else does either.

@erh.germany ·
To regard downvotes as "normal" has no equivalent in the physical world, nor do I know of other Internet places where such is practiced. That one should not take the displeasure received from other people personally is not wrong. And although this is a mature way of looking at things and being thematized in philosophies or religious practices, there is no such general attitude to Steemit. 

I do not know of any common practice where there is an equivalent for a down-vote. If you're rated on amazon or ebay, that's customer satisfaction information, but you won't deduct anything from the purchase price because someone got a bad rating unless it's clear fraud. 

An employee who does a bad job will not get anything deducted from his salary at the end of the month, at most he will be criticized and made aware of his mistakes so that he can improve.  It makes a difference whether you get something taken away and no matter what amount it is, even if it is only a small amount, the symbolism behind it says that you can take something away from someone because it is up to a judgement. The difference between plagiarism and the attitude that someone has "earned too much" from something is huge. Plagiarism or downloading paid content is illegal and punishable by a fine. 

However, Newsteem states that you can vote down content because you don't like how much money someone has made with a post. This is entering a devil's kitchen and if it is actually believed that someone who receives a downvote has the maturity to take it calmly, this is a repression of the reality of humans psyche. 

It would indeed be helpful not to care if someone takes something away from you. But in fact we are far from it. It would be like the attitude that someone takes coins or notes out of your wallet just because it works or because a new form of rule has been proclaimed. 

The explanation that the upvotes and downvotes received don't really "exist" as long as the 7-day window is still open is a logical explanation, but it doesn't accept the illogicality of humans. Nowhere is there an established habit that a sum expressed in numbers under the article perceived as "my" blog is not already considered "mine". Once the payout amount appears, people consider it "their payout". Any reduction of this amount is a pain for the ego. 

Calling such pain "unjustified" negates the strong ego in people and wants to put it in the corner to make it look like an offended child. Any increase in payout is a joy for the ego and it wants "more of it". To achieve that the ego does not hurt when something is reduced, it would have to cause the ego to be completely indifferent to the "more" at the same time. To both the "more" and the "less" the ego would have to behave calmly.  Everyone who is able to let go of his ego is at the same time able to do without incentives and at thereby not have the impression of having to sacrifice something. 

In order to attain such mental maturity, people must first come to make nothing of the disapproval of others and welcome it as a helpful hint that other people wish them well. 

We are generally far from this ideal and it is doubtful that in online groups such an ideal can dominate or be fixed in space-time, as life is constantly changing and new conflict situations are constantly arising. It therefore remains only for each person to do the work with himself personally and not to expect others to show a maturity that one has to work hard for oneself again and again. Another person's reaction can always be such that he or she is not able to bear the responsibility that is expected of him or her. It is already difficult enough to learn to assess this in friendships. Therefore, it would be wise to always take into account the probability that there are lots of vulnerable egos. 

Nobody on Steemit - not even in the offline world - can pin himself to the chest to have given up his ego. That everyone knows this about themselves as well as about others is a sign of intelligence, not stupidity or childishness.
