RE: Steemit Inc now censors posts from the UI

in #steem3 years ago

A hardfork away from Steemit Inc was always necessary, but the timing had to be right to make it work. The timing of this one is just right. A few weeks ago would have been too soon and a few weeks from now would have been too late. I am glad the community gave Justin a chance to show his true colors to justify the hardfork. The external crypto community observed what happened and reasonable thinking people will side with the community. Looking forward to Hive.

Totally agree except for one detail...

I am glad the community gave Justin a chance to show his true colors to justify the hardfork.

They pointed an unloaded gun at him as he entered the premises.

That helped speed up this process for sure instead of delaying it until later this year or beyond.

He didn't enter. He stood outside with a fuel can and cigarette lighter, and started ranting. Witnesses just picked up fire extinguishers.

Staying with the same allegory one could think of the fire extinguisher in need of recharging as it did sweet fuck all in terms of retarding any flames. All that v 22.2 did, in my estimation, is to forever put doubt on what actions the 19 of the top 20 pre-22.2 witnesses may decide to do with my property should push ever come to shove again. The real test of restoring trust will be how quickly and effeciently governance loop holes are plugged.

I felt like the Hive announcement hinted that they addressed this in some way, the governance issue. Maybe it was just the 30 day delay but I felt like it might be more than that.

Great! Bull’s eyes!
Right timing indeed!
