Warning: Steem witnesses executed a hard fork on 2020-05-20, seizing 23.6M STEEM from 65 accounts. The funds were transferred to an account named @community321, the ownership (and intentions) of which have not been revealed. The witnesses claim to have been targeting accounts which defended against a hostile takeover in early March, but at least 2 accounts on the list have been inactive for over 4 years.

Coverage:
- Decrypt.io: Steem network to seize $5 million from its own users

- GitHub.com: view steemd HF23 changes

body"> I'm just pointing out that this situations could be easily avoided.
This is what we have done already, we disabled signups for that old service and added information on each voted post that people can read. Since you signed up to steemvoter.com before we disabled the signups, there was no reason to disable your account on our side, it would be quite unfair to just kick people out of a service they enjoy using so we kept existing users like you.
For me it is important to inform people about what happened with your account as to not spread FUD about @dlease upvoting posts."
