RE: New features: extended phishing protection, preview and scan of shortened links

in Hive Projects2 years ago (edited)
  • The auto-reply for phishing links won't be disabled as it prevents theft of funds

For the shortened urls and http links they are already throttled 1/20th and anyone can opt-out replying OFF. The latter is helping with the phishing campaigns that have been ongoing recently both on steem and hive, the attacker is using shortened urls that point to their phishing sites.

Is this a bot answer too? Please stop spamming your "advertisement" everywhere. Perhaps the meaning is well, but should think about this a bit longer, who are you to say what is mandatory and what is not?

Advertisement of what? I add references to my old posts in the comments to make people understand I'm legit and what the bot is doing. I spent many hours coding this bot and I make nothing out of it and it pisses me off how instead of thanking me some people like you just bitch about it (the majority thinks otherwise so who cares!).

Maybe you are right though, I should stop spamming my replies to phishing links and just let them steal from users...

I should not say what is mandatory and what is not (eg. protecting users from funds theft). I should stop working for free and pay for my own server expenses and just shut down everything. Thank you for enlightening me. 😏// sarcasm end

was getting this phishing WARNING ad repeated daily

There were some node issues so my check to prevent a new reply when a comment was edited was not working properly. If you are willing to provide constructive criticism of what should be improved, point me to an example so that I can investigate and fix it if it's a bug. That, instead of just bitching, would help.

No need to take it personally. Bitching is a word used, when one is unable to understand criticism. Perhaps some people like your approach, but this might become a platform used by a million people, and the bot would be filling the chains in no-time.

Like I said, would be better to have a subscription-based service, than a system-wide "justice bot". In the end, you decide what is flagged and what is not. The abuse potential is huge, so it is a fair warning from my side.

So what next, adding my account to your DANGER list?

So no communication, well that clearly shows the motives are highly questionable. For money, for recognition, for dumb memes for sure. Just tried to tell you people are not stupid and will see, what you are doing with the little "project" :D

"For money" -> not really here for that, I invested 5 grand in HIVE in the past 3 years because I believe in it. Also, look at what the average salary in NY is for a senior software engineer and stop pestering me. The other reasons.. whatever, think what you want.

You don't like me, stop interacting with me and mute me. Bye!

Please stop your incessant, unwarranted spam comments on my posts.

I don’t see any comments of mine on your posts, got a link?
