Let's have a little chat about downvotes shall we?
No, I'm not here to whine and complain about someone "stealing" my rewards, I've been here for five and a half years, and I know how all this works. I've written multiple big explanation posts about how rewards are only "potential" until payout happens.
I get huge 100% down-votes every so often from the big 4 anti-truth whales, and I just roll with it... Usually.
This time around, it's pretty annoying, so I figured I would at least let people know what's happening (since these folks usually wait until the last minute before payout do DV, so it can't be countered and people don't notice.)
So... let's take a look at my most successful post in a long time (by # of votes or $ payout - before that got deleted), and what happened.
This post was at around $300, with 3x the number of upvotes that I ever get on content.
Tons of comments & engagement.
Nothing controversial (they love to down-vote anything that doesn't match the technocrat narrative)
Hell, it was a post PROMOTING HIVE
The strangest thing about this is that usually they only come and down-vote my content if I'm calling out organized crime, genocide, human trafficking, etc...
Or, of course, if you are having any sort of conversation about their malicious downvoting
^^^ This is a post that I made, explaining some of the finer details of down-voting on hive, the 7 day rewards consensus, and so on...
So, of course, they removed 75% of the post's rewards.
Because how dare I question them...
Because there's no way to know.
Because they never leave a comment, reach out to people, or give any justification for their theft of funds.
Because it really is - a downvote steals funds from the curators and author of a post, and redistributes it all to the top of the Trending page - which is mostly shitpost photography, upvoted for hundreds of dollars, by these same pro-state anti-truthers.
Since rational people like "conspiracy theorists" and "truthers" don't believe in censorship, and prefer to actually have debates, this [email protected] of downvote abuse is all one-directional.
The people who want Hive to be more and more like Facebook or Twitter are actively trying to push anyone who disagrees with them off the platform, and continually centralizing the stake of Hive, through their scheme.
Here are some examples of other, extremely high quality, posts that they attack - usually targeted at specific creators, in an attempt to force them off Hive.
First up, here are some screenshots of the most recent posts by ura-soul, who has been creating high quality content, running a witness (Hive Block Producer) and promoting the blockchain since the early days of Steem. He is now being systematically attacked by the anti-truthers, to the tune of $1000s per week.
Next up, here is the same activity over on JasonLiberty's profile as well...
There's lots more, but I need to get off the computer for the day
Finally, here are some of the recent conversation posts about these bad actors, attempts to communicate with them, potential ways to deal with them, and the mass exodus from Hive.
