RE: The Downvote and Whales Pleasing Syndrome

You are viewing a single comment's thread:

You miss one critical thing in your assessment, this is a shared reward pool with everyone and that people with stake have more influence as they earned it (either through rewards or buying it).

You say people should post as much as they want and no one should ever downvote, what happens when haejin2 shows up and starts posting 11 times a day and self voting with 1.5M HP with all his voting power? Should those who put in effort suffer with fewer rewards as a result?

What you do in the reward pool effects everyone.

Without downvotes we would turn into whaleshares where stake holders will post "stake preservation posts" 11 times a day and self vote 100% to just maintain their stake.

It isn't as simple as "if you don't like it don't vote it".

There are also many situations where many people will vote up crappy content just to keep it in in the family. Just look at blurt where it only takes 3 votes to get to trending or Steemit which is flooded with a handful of people making thousands of dollars per post and dominating trending. You can't downvote on Blurt and Steemit downvotes just don't happen anymore.

By your words, I should be able to post 11 memes a day, and upvote them 100% and do nothing else. What gives you the right to convince me otherwise? If I do it, why doesn't everyone else?

Good point. What happens when a group of friends starts posting one post a day and all they do is keep on upvoting each other? It's the same fight over the rewards pool imo.

Word on that. I've underlined my take in this regard just above.

I guess common sense stops us from doing that... At least that's my case. I know that is hard to keep the platform perfectly clean, but I was not suggesting in any way through my post that anyone should post 10 times a day.

I was referring to a case where a user is putting out two-three posts a day and imo that's not much. I have such days when I post three times a day, but that doesn't mean all of those posts are curated equally or that I'm spamming anyway.

Fun fact: *if it wasn't for haejin and his votes this post would have probably not hit the trending page and you wouldn't read it ;). What's even funnier is that newsflash had to come and rebalance the rewards on it :)
