Thanks for removing the kitten from the flag-list!

Retracting the flags would be awesome, but if it's a manual process that hinders progress on the front of fighting actual abusers, that's a sacrifice I'll happily make!

Upon closer inspection:

Total amount of rewards [potentially] returned to the reward pool in the past 24 hours:

This calculation seems based on all the down-votes "potential" negative rewards impact. In the case of @cuddlekitten far less than $7.4 have actually been removed. As a matter of fact, less than $1 has been returned from the kitten's rewards.

85 comments have received 42 upvotes from various users in the community - that said, it also shows the kitten isn't received as spam by too many!

  • the average upvote size was 4,745,035,349 RShares (~$0.014)
  • total open rewards were ~$0.572

which has been downvoted like so:

  • each comment was flagged with ~25,000,000,000 negative Rshares (~$0.075)
  • total potential impact -$6.459

This analysis is only based on the stats of @cuddlekitten. In the case of other accounts being flagged like the @newsteemians example where each individual flagged comment had a $0.70 pseudo-self-vote by @gaman the numbers in the OP are quite accurate!

Kudos on that one!!

A helpful bot that brings smiles to the userbase (especially with a living breathing human interactive admin) is not a burden but a contribution in itself (spiritually and technologically) worth payout. I don't understand the logic behind some of the crusades. It's like, attack first, apologize later? I appreciate the idea of reducing phishing links but if an automated message contains no link or the word dot, it should not be a priority in the first place imo. Why is the number of comments more important that the quality of comments? It took an hour and a half for a phishing link to get downvoted on my page but we're downvoting kittens and foreign speakers who write short sentences. Smh lol omg

I guess our overlords would call it "collateral damage" ;)

While I also do appreciate the initiatives around "cleaning" steemit from abuse like reward-farming, scams and phishing... the self-proclaimed warriors-for-good around here are too often found on the bordlerlines of becoming abusive themselves...

ah well... we're all just people with egos and a limited attention span after all ;)


So you are the genious behind cuddlekitten ? 😺😺😺😸😸😸😸😸😸😼😼😼😽😽😽😽

heh... lol... yeah... I'm the "evil mastermind" that tries to put cuddles and cuteness into cans...

I’ll also add my appreciation of @cuddlekitten ‘s removal. Yes, I can see why there might be a concern. But in the end, that kitten brings smiles with the cute arty appearances and upvotes. I’ll gratefully take that over no love at all. :)

I totally agree! I also appreciate @cuddlekitten and the sweet kitten art <3 Brings smiles and positivity and support with upvotes, resteems and comments ^•.•^

I had to come look at this page because someone that just commented on my recent post was flagged. @gaman is the name. I am now following your page and thank you for keeping an eye open for folks that may try to take advantage of me.

i didnt do anything wrong and this guy flagged me , guess hes jealous of my race car i hand built and posted , i havent posted content in a month

I don't think the flag was for you, but rather the commentee. I just got the same response, or my "commentee" did. I do suggest this user/bot open his/her/it's reply to the individual he/she/it is targeting.

Confused me.

Learn to use Steemit, it's replying to the correct comment that is being flagged.

very very thanks for your post

@abusereports nice post. kindly check mine and help me grow

nice very goood thanks... follow you blog and vote.
