Flagged for collusive voting. @steemflagrewards

It is terribly inconsiderate for you and your hubby to be upvoting each others comments in threads and you don't even bother to show the OP any support for their post.

Edit: The post is an overvalued reword. Still point remains about your collusive voting on comments.

It's seems very self centered and does not align with community values. Please, refrain from this practice. It's very off putting in my humble opinion.
