RE: HOW TO SHUT UP! HIVE is Gaining a Bad Reputation - Official Disagreement in Hive

You are viewing a single comment's thread:

Yep, as I said, that would be the true definition of freedom; however, Hive as a whole (Or should that be the majority?) has decided to add a few caveats to "Freedom", most of which we all accept and understand. So, for example, simply translating an article and then posting that translation on Hive is a massive No-no! That's stealing someone else's work! I suspect leaving it up to upvoting or downvoting is insufficient for some of the determined plagiarists and spammers on Hive. I suspect those types of individuals rely on the fact that many users won't bother checking to see if the work is authentic or not and will be conned into making undeserved upvotes.

The best way to not get on any blacklists is not to copy other people's work or try to be smart by simply changing a couple of words here and there, thus trying to pass it off as unique work. Also, giving accreditation to the original producers/owners of any media included in posts.

Of course, but still, there is nothing stopping someone from doing that if they wanted. People that downvote those posts and blacklist those users are doing that by their own volition. Hence, everything is in the scope of freedom. People are still free to write plagiarised content on here, they would just get downvoted to oblivion and that is the freedom of other users. If the majority of users agree on something, it does not mean it is a caveat on freedom, it is those users freedom to agree on something. That is my understanding of what freedom is, and that the platform is still in this scope of freedom.

I agree. But by the same token, people can't complain about Blacklists either, can they? If we accept people are free to lie and cheat, then we accept others are free to combat that. It's not rocket science. I'm also against people having more than one account. To my mind, there's only one reason to have multiple accounts, and that's to do something dodgy.

I agree. Not on the multi-account part though as there are legitimate use cases for multiple accounts. Like how I might want to reward someone's post on a tribe without wanting to reward HIVE and as everything on the blockchain is public, you can see if there is something dodgy going on.

Na, we have communities for that. There's far too much circle jerk going on with Hive as it is without giving people the opportunity to self vote from multiple accounts. I don't bother investigating who's who, although a lot of my friends do. Ideally, I should be able to trust that who I'm conversing with speaks to me from one account only and doesn't communicate from multiple accounts with numerous personas all trying to Currie a vote which ultimately they will feed down to one account.

When you upvote in a community, you will also upvote with your hive voting power, that is how it works. I did not mess around with voting multipliers etc. though so idk.

I don't fully agree with that. There's plenty of reasons for having more than one account. As an example: I own (openly) @AdventureReady & @BeachReady. Both are sister companies but I want to brand them in different congruent ways here on the Hive Blockchain. This is only one practical example, @dickturpin and @mrtats, for having a multiple account approach to the Hive Blockchain.

If it's fraudulent reasons though... I get it and agree. Having more than one account for the purposes of less than honest acts is an absolute determent.

Of course, having different accounts for different projects is one of the legitimate reasons for having multiple accounts. I just wanted to give a personal example by mentioning curation in different communities.

We have to acknowledge that some people might use multiple accounts to hide their self-voting tendencies and other fraudulent things.

Sure. These are things to consider... But on the whole I don't think that would be a reasonable reason NOT to have the ability to have another account. It's all about intent as you know. These are tricky things and the balance is an ever changing pendulum of need and want.

I gave you a follow as I appreciate your sharp intellect and the obvious care you have for the Hive Blockchain.

The more than one account opinion is interesting.

The community is set up for creators in niches. I think people are more apt to delegate and Auto upvote when they know someone sticks to a particular subject.

In this regard, I've considered doing a different account for the hive pile show and my sports social talk content
