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