No one has ever been blacklisted by me for disagreeing with the soft fork or even disagreeing with me. You are full of shit.

Blacklist me daddi, I deserve it, everyone gets blacklisted but me. I want to be your little bitch.

@Themarkymark You backlisted @majes.tytyty and all efforts to reach out to you was not dignified with a response. That's centralization too in a bit different shade. Practice what you preach.

I blacklisted him because he was posting garbage and buying a ton of bid bot votes for it. I never once censored him.

Before @Smartsteem opted out of your Global API blacklist at a point all of @Majes.tytyty's posts were hidden. That amounted to censorship if not for @Smartsteem's magnanimity.

Recall that we pleaded with you to remove him from your blacklist but you didn't even though it is now impossible to abuse bots. You feel that it's your blacklist and you have the right to decide who stays or gets removed. That's exactly what Sun is doing with Steemit right now. Dictatorship. Centralization. Autocracy.

I hope your blacklist will be refreshed when Hive kicks off. If not, wait for me. Regards sir.

SmartSteem didn't opt out, they stopped maintaining it as they no longer ran a bid bot and anti-abuse wasn't their primary objective.

All his posts were still visible.

I remember you all spamming me over and over across multiple accounts.

With all due respect, I have never posted anything that can be called "garbage."

When composing each post, I spend a few hours to ensure that the content is well-written, interesting, and informative, and that the layout is attractive and worthy of publication.

@Smartsteem by so doing took a noble decision. Do you still run a bid bot? If not, why do you still have people like @Majes.tytyty on your list? Malice is the only answer that comes into my head.

You call the voice of genuine community members "spammers"? Is this different from Sun who calls the elected witnesses " hackers"? Well, it is your blacklist the same way Steemit is Sun's you guys can do anything you like with it. Regards sir.

No they stopped maintaining it, so it was pointless to have a stale list.

My blacklist was not about my bid bot, my blacklist was because I spend a huge amount of time finding and fighting abuse.

I spend every day here fighting spam and abuse. That never changed if I ran a blacklist or not.

He was put on the list for a legitimate reason (bid bot abuse and low effort posts). Everyone added is for a legitimate reason. I review requests for removal but I only have so much time and resources doing this by myself without funding or help.

Please kindly note that I have nothing against your blacklist except from the position that erstwhile bot abusers ought not to still be there by now.

I can only imagine how tiring it could be for you doing all those Herculean task. It is why I would suggest that perhaps you should devise a standard procedure for those seeking a review of their place on your blacklist. It could be paying a review fee or burning an amount of Steem or Hive as the case maybe. If your review still shows that the user should remain on the blacklist with strong reasons then critics will go to sleep. The review fee can help cover costs and other things. It can even build an economy around your blacklist.

That said, please refresh your blacklist on the Hive blockchain. There will be no point pouring an old wine into an old skin. Regards sir.

Yes it is. But do you realize the stigma that comes with a blacklist? It is beyond posts being visible or not.
