What is an AMA?

AMA is a format popular on Reddit where one person offers to answer questions for a limited period of time.

How long will I answer questions?

I will usually answer them pretty quickly, and I should be around for a few hours. I will continue to answer them as they come in.

What type of questions can you ask?

I'm open to pretty much anything but I can give the best answers about:

  • Hive
  • Hive Witness
  • Crypto
  • PCs
  • Gaming (Video, Board, Crypto)
  • NFTs
  • Minecraft
  • Elden Ring
  • Popping off in Hunt: Showdown
  • Ape Mining Club
  • Hive Punks
  • Photography
  • Development
  • Technology
  • 3D Printing
  • Productivity
  • Movies & TV
  • Comedy
  • Memes

Don't feel limited to the above categories, just things I generally know about.

Hi @themarkymark
I would like to ask if you mine cryptocurrency and if yes what are those?
Also what we can expect in terms of use case of hive punks in future?
Thanks in advance for your time.

Oh Marky; this feels like an opportunity to say 'Knock, Knock', in the knowledge that you might actually say 'Who's there?'.

Or, I could ask, 'Do you think our relationship will continue to blossom?', but I'd expect you to say it already is!

Or, perhaps I should wonder: What do you think is the upside potential in Hive? Where do you see it growing to into the future?

Good chat. Tim

This question comes up every AMA, but my answer is always the same. I don't believe anyone knows where a token will be in a year, much less tomorrow. So I can't really answer this outside of just a guess.

The possibilities are endless, it really depends on what you want to do. I recommand checking out MagPi Magazine, it's free if you download the PDF version, it has many ideas and good articles about the Raspberry Pi.

https://magpi.raspberrypi.com/

I do recommend checking out NextDNS over Pi Hole. It is far better and does a lot more. It will cost you $20 a year if you use it a lot but the amount of security it gives you is more than worth it.

I actually do have some questions, but I don't know whether you can answer them. Here goes:

When I post a review of a book or movie, I typically do not include the real cover unless it happens to be cc0 (as was the case with "Rebecca" -- the movie). However, I notice I am in a minority here. Most people posting reviews post the actual book or movie cover and/or stills from the movie.

I don't care what other people do -- I mean, if it is a copyright violation, which it technically is, it is minor and I am a "live and let live" sort of person in general. However, I think it might add to my reviews if I included the original book or movie cover, so, if that is something hivewatchers, etc thinks is okay, I might do it. It seems a grey area.

That is a long-winded way of asking your opinion on this if you have one. (I know it's not a very interesting question, but it's one of those things that keeps coming up. On a related note, I see people sometimes posting memes, which seems a copyright violation in a few ways, but I am not asking about that because I have no meme-posting plans in the immediate future. )

(P.S. Out of curiosity, have you decided what to mine when Ether is no longer mineable? I thought it already was not mineable, but I guess they must have pushed it back.)

(P.P.S. Totally unrelated - if you were just starting out in computing today and you wanted to get one skill or credential that would be most profitable, what would it be and why?)

Yeah, I know... it's a lot of questions. Feel free to ignore in part or entirely, of course.

I would recommend posting the cover and linking below it a source of the image. This is an acceptable practice. Although I doubt anyone is going to confuse the author of the image when you use a cover image of a major movie, it is best to source it.

Here is how I do it.

<sub>[Source](link to source)</sub>

That will give you something like this.
Source

Sub will just make it a little smaller than the rest of the text, which looks good for source links.

I would highly recommend you put the cover image and any other good related images in your post, just source them.

If I was doing a movie review, I would typically put this at the bottom of the post, something like this.

All images in this post are from the movie Black Panther owned by Marvel Studios.

Don't be afraid to use images in your posts, just properly source any that are not yours. CC0 images do not need attribution for personal or commercial use, but can be confusing for onlookers. I frequently use CC0 images as my post header image without attribution.

As someone who has done antiabuse here for years, I have come up with a rule of thumb for third party content, but this is only my opinion.

Third party content should add to your post, but when it is your post there is a problem.

Meaning, it's ok to add images that compliment your original content, but posting an image from the Black Panther movie and that's it, that's a problem. Most of the post should be your own content if you expect to earn rewards for it.

Out of curiosity, have you decided what to mine when Ether is no longer mineable?

Nope it is pointless, I'll mine it while it is possible, when it isn't, I will just look for the next profitable coin. No sense spinning wheels until it's actually an issue as things may change by then.

Totally unrelated - if you were just starting out in computing today and you wanted to get one skill or credential that would be most profitable, what would it be and why?

Start your own company. This question is difficult to answer as I am not really sure what field you want to be in, computer repair, AI, programming, database design, the possibilities are endless.

What do you say about this???
(1) PoB reward is 65% of the reward pool, for content creator(32.5%) and curator(3.25%). The content creators can be voted on their posts, comments, etc.
(2) Is it possible to reserve 5% of the reward pool exclusively for comments. At this point of time, it includes all and it is purely at the discretion of curators to vote a post or comment.

I don't have the data; what percentage of the total reward pool is being distributed to the commenters on average. Any tentative data on that??

So, if by an amendment 5% of the reward pool will be reserved for commenters, how difficult it will be to code it? and Do you think it will make people become a consumer of the comment also in addition to being a content consumers of posts? I am not questioning the current status quo, as I don't have the data, I may be wrong in calling for greater engagement in the comment section(which might already be there at present). But I feel that a dedicated reward pool for commenters can be a homecoming for the traditional userbase of Twitter, Facebook, etc. Many are content consumers (or very casual content creators) in Asian countries.

Not really sure, that seems low considering there are no POB miners. What happens to the other 35%?

Not without custom code or a benecifiary account that does separate voting.

So, if by an amendment 5% of the reward pool will be reserved for commenters, how difficult it will be to code it?

That's something that would have to be coded by the Hive Engine team as they control the code that does the distribution for Tribes. There are ways to do it outside of that in a round about way which are easier.

Thank you for the response.

What happens to the other 35%?

I think the remaining 35% is for witnesses(10%), interest payment for vested token holders, HP(15%) and rest is for Hive DAO(10%).

I am unable to trace Hivedb to get the data of PoB percentage distribution of rewards(Authors, Commenters, Curators, etc), can you help me any alternative tool to query such data?

That comment is forced since I am using LeoFinance right now, it adds it automatically to posts and comments. I have said a few times I think the comments is too much and just makes it look spammy but it is not my community.

If you are posting things related to money, it's certainly a good idea to use LeoFinance. Anything else, I typically use PeakD.

I think it is pretty confusing for Average Joe and the website is very minimum effort. I did notice the website got some updates that improved it, but these should have been done before launch.

I think limiting rewards for staking to those who run nodes is going to cause most people to just sell them.

I switched to being anon on the Internet years ago due to all the data breaches and lack of respect for users private information.

Almost every site gets hacked or sells private data. Any time I can use made up information, I will do.

I also deleted all my social accounts, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and so on. It's just not worth it.

Every site I join I choose a random name and random 64 character password. Anything other than this is all downside and no upside.

When you are in crypto, it is evey more a concern. Look at the recent Ledger breach where their customer database was leaked or when Facebook sold all your private information to ad companies, even information they stated would never be sold.

Add in the fact I work in Information Security field, I am even more cautious.

Awesome. Thank you so much for the answer. Makes a lot of sense. Moreover inflation is going up and up. This can lead to crime rate going up. Not being an anon could risk your life and your family's life especially when you are in the crypto space. I mean to say that it's not just hacks that we should be worried about.

For the very same reason I don't get too excited and discuss my crypto investments with my friends except a few peeps I hangout and meet with on daily basis. People don't care about your life changing experiences. They will join the party anyway if they want to.

One more question, Do you think there are any downsides to being an anon? Are you and I missing something? 🙈

Not really, maybe fewer pool parties but with the amount of death threats I have received, I'm happy being anon. Most social media sites you are anon anyway, so it isn't really much different. If I didn't have stake, no one would care.

Hi Marky, I love AMA's because they teach good lessons. I'm not clear about token burning, what is the biggest advantage of doing coin burning, what is the purpose of doing that? Does Hive burn your tokens? How often? Could you please clarify these doubts?... My regards!

0
0

Typically token burning does nothing generally. I could burn my entire stake on my account and Hive won't likely move a cent.

The main purpose of burning is to reduce the supply and create scarcity.

There are ways it can do things though, if the burns are significant, systematic, and marketed.

First let me give you an example.

You go to your school bake sale, you stand in line and when it is your turn you ask for a pumpkin pie. They tell you it will be $10 and they pull a pie off the stack of 100 other pies. You pay your $10 and move on.

Let's say you instead go and they only have one pie, and you love pumpkin pie. Would you pay more than $10? What if the person behind you said they will definitely be buying that pie and will pay twice the amount to get it. You can probably see where I'm going here.

Another scenerio is here on Hive. Let's say I make a post promoting my next big thing. It gets $50-100, and I get half of that as an author. If I made that same post, but instead burned rewards, I will likely get a lot more votes as voters know I won't benefit from it (outside of more exposure) so they are likely to vote more as a result.

Another example is my own project STEMGeeks, I frequently burn 50-100% of the weekly reward pool due to multiple things I do. This takes an already super low inflation (6% compared to 20% of many tribes) and turns it to almost 0% inflation. This in theory should make the token super valuable, and the price should go through the roof as a result. This isn't the case though as most people are not interested in posting or curating Science and Technology content, but it does serve a purpose for me. It allows me to minimize the inflation and almost completely eliminate it, until we have enough users on Hive and by association STEMGeeks to justify the inflation. At that point, I would hope the demand would be much higher.

In short, burning tokens generally doesn't do anything unless it massively reduces the inflation to a point it makes the token far more attractive, but it can however be a very attractive option compared to someone else benefiting from something. For example, in STEMGeeks I burn all the rewards earned by the official accounts to further reduce inflation and prevent the token owner (me) from gobbling up all the inflation from the community.

Just commenting here with a project I think will be doing great in various aspects (launchpad with high profile projects only, quality over quantity), ETF play....and a token burn schema. Burning up to an extreme even. They started with a tat more than 200M tokens and will continue these buybacks and burn until 2M tokens are in the market. Not sure how long this will take, maybe a decade or more. I believe they did something well in the concept. Both the launchpad and ETF fund offers long term subscriptions (token locks). The token burning gives something extra to the long term lockers, ie the idea that when the tokens get unlocked, fewer TenseT tokens are in the market which should give extra value to the token, which should entice peeps to lock their tokens for the maximum length of time. Thus far, the TenseT token value waves are caused by new project launches which require a fixed 1-year subscription.

First, would you advise anyone to buy a MacBook 2012 edition, I need to get a laptop and I saw one of those that I can afford, or should I just wait a bit longer for something else.

Secondly, as someone whose main income comes from hive due to the high rate of unemployment in my country, what do you think is a good way to increase earnings one hive and be consistent in doing so?

I am not a fan of Apple hardware, but I do like the Macbook Air a lot. If that's your budget, then sure. I would probably suggest looking at a Chromebook or Windows machine for a cheaper than a Macbook Air if you don't have the budget. 2012 is really old and it won't last long most likely, not to mention it being slow.

What do you think about the HBD Bonds idea Taskmaster promotes? I suppose you know about it. There are actually two phases for that. One that would create a sort of term deposit contracts for HBD at layer 1, time-locked and at higher and fixed yields for the term but witness customizable for new contracts, potentially for different terms (if not, for one year). The next phase would create the actual transferrable bonds at layer 2, but that would come later. Would you improve/change something?

The problem is we can see what's possible with a stable coin that works in a similar manner as the HIVE-HBD relation does (I'm talking about LUNA-UST). The major difference is how much difference of market cap there is between HBD and UST and how aggressively they promote UST in every ecosystem out there.

Yes, Hive is a more complex ecosystem than they have, but if we keep thinking defensively chances are we'll never grow fast enough to matter.

The 4000 will be hard to get at first, and they raising the price quite a bit. Rumors are it is a pretty big upgrade though, like the 3000 was.

If you are getting something like a 3060, I'd just get it now, if you are going for something like the 3090, maybe wait for the 4090. It depends on what you play and the resolution.

I have an Ultra Wide 1440p, so I need a lot more to drive it. If I was just playing Dota, it wouldn't matter a 3060 would be plenty.

Maybe you answered the question below, in earlier AMA's... when so, you may direct me to that one, orrrr in case you adapted your view, I like to read your response here :)

What do you think HIVE should become: purely a general-purpose chain, or stay a blogging chain (which it isn't already these days with eg Splinterlands consuming 60/70% of chain transactions). The answer to this question results immediately into the next question: Should blogging rewards move to a higher layer altogether, with HIVE tokens not being used as a reward token for blogging services?

In an ideal world, I'd liked to see all social aspects removed from Hive. Smart Contracts and custom tokens added. Then all current social aspects turned into one of many dApps on a smart contract.

Should blogging rewards move to a higher layer altogether, with HIVE tokens not being used as a reward token for blogging services?

Yes, I believe this is the future.

Agree with you 100%. The power of HIVE chain to me is the feeless transactions. Smart contracts and maybe even the support for EVM, will put HIVE into the top 100, maybe even top 50 and 25. If not for HIVE, Koinos will do this. Am not too worried about Steem and Blurt doing something like that, for the moment :) What do you think is the consensus between the witnesses on this front?

Greetings @themarkymark ❤️💕

Firstly I want to commend you for coming up with such an interactive content like this which helps to promote learning even though I'm actually experiencing something like this on hive for the very first time.. Keep up the good work 👍

My questions are not that much but I will want you to answer them more explicitly since I myself don't know much and I'm always open to learning.

  1. My first question is that I noticed you are also applying for the role of Hive witness, I will love to ask what are your plans or aspirations for the development of Hive blockchain.

  2. My second question is that what does it takes to make one's content appear on Hive trending page or how can content creators gain or generate more attention after publishing their quality content on Hive?

  3. What's your view or opinion about Metaverse?

  4. What other means or methods can you recommend when it comes to making more income in the cryptocurrency space apart from trading and Staking cryptocurrencies?

Thanks for your time and I also thank you for sharing this great post with love from @hardaeborla and I hope you have a great day ahead ❤️💕❤️

My first question is that I noticed you are also applying for the role of Hive witness, I will love to ask what are your plans or aspirations for the development of Hive blockchain.

I wish to see rewards move to 2nd layer. I would go so far to say moving all social functionality to a second layer (implemented as a smart contract) as to make the core blockchain more generic rather than specifically focused on Social media.

My second question is that what does it takes to make one's content appear on Hive trending page or how can content creators gain or generate more attention after publishing their quality content on Hive?

Trending is simply a function of rewards and time.

I believe consistency and quality are the biggest factors to getting more rewards.

What's your view or opinion about Metaverse?

Overrated, but still a unique opportunity.

What other means or methods can you recommend when it comes to making more income in the cryptocurrency space apart from trading and Staking cryptocurrencies?

Building projects.

Thanks for your lovely reply @themarkymark 💕❤️

I wish to see rewards move to 2nd layer. I would go so far to say moving all social functionality to a second layer (implemented as a smart contract) as to make the core blockchain more generic rather than specifically focused on Social media.

Does this implies that there will be little or low focus on blogger/creator rewards? I don't seem to understand you here. Also about implementing a smart contract on the second layer, will users have access to staking functionality on Hive blockchain?

Trending is simply a function of rewards and time.

I believe consistency and quality are the biggest factors to getting more rewards

I also agree with your point here though and I think it's high time I started applying this concept too.

Overrated, but still a unique opportunity

Lol.. How's metaverse overrated? You aren't interested in Metaverse?

Building projects

I think there's a misconception here.. Two things can either happen when building projects, it's either the project becomes successful or unsuccessful.. Even if the project is successful, how can one make people utilise or adopt such project?

Another thing is that it's not everyone that's financially capable of building or developing projects in the crypto space.. What about people who don't have that financial capability is it also possible for them to make money in the crypto space?

Thanks for your time and I hope to read your feedback about the above questions too.. Have a great day ahead with love from @hardaeborla ❤️💕❤️

No just means they won't be on the first layer of Hive.

Lol.. How's metaverse overrated? You aren't interested in Metaverse?

It just is, and no I am really not, but I am building there anyway.

Even if the project is successful, how can one make people utilise or adopt such project?

That's the million dollar question.

What about people who don't have that financial capability is it also possible for them to make money in the crypto space?

Sure, but it is far more difficult. Money makes money.

Oh, some regions have massive Crypto influx like Malta or Puerto Rico and since crypto Gen1 people are so wealthy, found that to be very interesting when I heard about it on Pops show and from Peter Schiff on Mikhaila Peterson Podcast.

But the argument that crypto might impact inflation overall makes me wonder how impactful the crypto space overall is already.

Hey Marky, hope you're doing well.

I would like to ask what the biggest mistake you have made in crypto is. (Apart from not buying BTC at $0.01 that is :D). I hope I'm not being indiscreet.

Probably selling off my mining equipment. I sold when used GPUs were selling almost as much as I paid for them.

I was doing really well mining and had a lot of GPUs but I don’t have an attractive energy cost but it was still very profitable.

If I kept mining I would have done very well. Especially due to the fact there was limitations in GPU purchases that limited it to one per customer making large farms very hard to do.

That being said, it was probably for the best as the majority of my GPUs were 1060 3gb edition as they were considerably cheaper and I could push a pretty good hash rate out of them. The problem is 3gb was no longer usable to mine Ethereum. I probably still could have gotten a few months out of them but not likely able to sell for peak price.

It was nice to get rid of the heat, holy shit my basement got hot.

Thank you for your time!

Sounds like you had a blast mining, plus the fact that you received almost as much as you paid for those miners makes it all a great play at the end of the day. Not too bad for a 'big mistake'.

Energy costs make mining a no-no were I live, but considering the kind of money people have to spend on heating here, maybe I should go for two birds with one stone after all.

Have a great day ahead!

Hello 🙋‍♀️ this is a great thing, it's great to get answers from people who know why, how, why.

🪄 My question is how can we draw attention to the quality content we produce.

🪄 Do you think people who want to hide themselves and only want to exist with their photos and writings will be supported?

🪄 Where am I going wrong, I couldn't find it.🙄

Thank you in advance for your answers 🤲

Not sure I understand the question, hide themselves as remaining anonymous or not engaging?

I want to add a little information. If you think I'm doing it for profit, you're wrong. because I think you know that only half of the price I paid for 4 weeks of rent will be returned. The account I made means more loss than profit for me. All I want to do is to support users who have come to certain places on the platform. I hope you will understand. I wish you success.

You went to the wrong platform my friend. I'm a five + year veteran of Steemit then hive. After five years, Marky and his gang turned on me and decided my supporters votes should be canceled out. Which is outrageous. All my travel/photos posts have been blanketed down to zero for months. There is a much better down-vote/abuse free platform called Blurt. It's the fork from steemit that doesn't get as much attention but it is now quickly growing in popularity.

You must know that Hive not at all decentralized and @themarkymark is a wealthy elite member of the group who run this platform. He and his associates have installed and use the down-vote button to abuse, control, and manipulate for their own personal reasons. It's a total disgrace and everyone should know there is an alternative platform free of this blatant corruption.

If you choose to buy and power up on blurt I'll match whatever you power up with a 4 week delegation equal to your power up. Over there you are free to do whatever you want...and I'll personally give you a nice introduction. Plus the price is very cheap, and has the potential to go up 10x....where hive will never go up 10x from here. In fact Marky and his rich friends will probably pull the rug on it sometime this year. Enriching themselves at everyone else's expense.

Hello.
I can say that this is the social media platform that I have enjoyed the most for about 5-6 months. I make regular and quality posts.
I also like and comment on the posts I like.
But I can't say that I'm in the trends.
Do you have any other suggestions for me?

Someone asked a similar question to mine and your answer was

Hi @themarkymark 😊
How are you?
How has the year been for you thus far?

My year has been tough.
I thought about leaving this earth at some point as I have tried out a lot of things I am both passionate and skilled in but they don't seem to be working and my life seems to be at a standstill.

Asking about you and others helps me get encouraged to keep pushing.
I hope it's not out of bounds.

Thank you so much.

Unless you mean taking a trip to Mars or something, that's never the answer. At some point this part of your life will be a distance memory and you will be glad you are around.

If your life is at a standstill, try to look at it from a different perspective, you may not be on the path you should be and sometimes a simple change is all it takes to move in the right direction.

Question -
How best to increase ROI from the vote selling buildawhale bot, after it's no longer acceptable?












Cool, thanks for answering.

P.S. you should remove "New Year Edition!" from your $100 copy/pasted post.
Yes, I understand the actual content is in comments, because I understand things.
But cmon, you're supposed to have an impervious facade around here - try harder.

OMG, someone I vote for votes me back. Holy shit. What an amazing observation.

In my entire history here, I have talked to solominer on like 3 ocassions, one was about STEMGeeks, another about Python, and third about downvoting a spammer.

What he does with his votes is completely up to him, as is what I do. I don't vote trade nor do I sell votes. In fact, anyone who contacts me even talking about votes gets ignored.

So if I was trading I'd be doing a pretty shitty job of it.

As you said, the post is 99% about the comments and engement. It's not something that is done every day or even 10 times a day like some people. It's done once a every two months. Great ad hominem in response to your farm of comment spammers getting flagged.

Credit where credit is due: you don't host an AMA 10 times a day, and respond to things inside the AMA even if they're scathing, so that's pretty cool.. but you should really stop pretending to understand the queen system as if you actually know what those votes are for. Most of them are dust that gets rounded down to nothing, so WTF is really going on? Nobody knows, I guarantee it.

Anyway it's not surprising you think it's "spam" at a glance, since this is hive with steemit roots that basically imply "everything is spam until proven otherwise", so maybe you're not even to blame for that... then again, the first rule of the game is "don't attack", and yet somehow across every community and format without fail there's always at least one person of 'authority' that does. The more warnings that are given the more likely it is to happen, and it's always the same archetype that does it - the people with some form of localized power in that environment. The blindfold is so universal that it's almost astounding, and it proves one of our original points beyond any doubt.

So you can keep downvoting, and we can keep haunting you while simultaneously proving points, it's fine - you've become a catalyst to the game either way (and like you said people do whatever they want), but pretending that you're innocent of circlejerk nonsense far in excess of the kind you're supposedly trying to fight against is some politician-level headspace you've cornered yourself into, and it's going to become really heavy over time.

Pointing at "abuse" of a few pennies while in your position didn't divert attention away from you, because you made the mistake of pointing at the mirrorforce, and we are not interested in pennies.

Our enemies are your enemies,
you just haven't noticed you're playing on the wrong side.
I don't expect that you care enough to figure that out, but if you do, things will change.

I don't need to or care what the fuck it is about. Spamming comments across 20 or so accounts all upvoting each other is the only thing I need to know.

Regardless of your bullshit justification, that's what it boils down to. If you have some sort of game that uses these upvotes to pay for something, this has been frowned upon time and time again. You self voting 20 accounts you own at near 100% is not only selfish it also gives you curation rewards and author rewards unfairly to anyone else on comments that would embarrass even 4chan.

pretending that you're innocent of circlejerk nonsense far in excess of the kind you're supposedly trying to fight against is some politician-level headspace you've cornered yourself into, and it's going to become really heavy over time.

Prove it or shut the fuck up. Just making accusations because you are salty for being caught doesn't mean shit. I do not self vote, I do not ask for votes, I do not accept anyone asking for votes from me, my voting is purely organic with no self interest. You are more than welcome to look into it and try to prove me otherwise.

Trying to attack me with bullshit claims because you got caught being a shitty community member is pathetic and you should feel bad.

Before posting I removed the part where I mentioned I have near-zero faith in "the archetype" being capable of understanding this, but one line in particular illustrates one of the original concepts perfectly: "If you have some sort of game that uses these upvotes to pay for something". Really, it's like everyone in that category has become a mindless drone barely capable of passing a turing test. Meanwhile part of the game is made to discern if anything has beyond-human intelligence. Thank "GOD" for that. No marky, it isn't a steemit upvote game, there are a million ways to make money on hive.

Anyway the whale circlejerk voting is obvious, although 'organic' traded votes is a fancy spin on the idea. It's nice to see that people have given it some thought to avoid anything coming back to haunt them, but it probably will anyway. I don't really care about it though, I just decided a couple random people should notice it sooner than they were going to otherwise. Some of it could be 'organic' like an unspoken handshake, sure, but it boils down to the same thing, since you care to talk about boiling things down and ignoring everything else - that's what it is, vote trading on every. single. post.

Don't be mistaken though, it's not like I'm calling the cops on a cop. First of all nobody would do anything about it, but more importantly I have much bigger fish to decimate than some random hive dude - I'm just letting you know that you're not as invincible as you think you are while simultaneously proving you're not as smart as you think you are by cascading your own actions into more proof of the things I actually care about. This is actually very easy to do, because you still have no idea what is going on, nor do you care to understand, as per the tertiary definition of blind. The AMA is the perfect place for you to defend yourself, so WTF is really going on? Maybe I'm attacking you, maybe I'm your best friend in disguise, maybe this is all just more reflections from the mirror that never breaks, and you can fight yourself forever if you find it entertaining - I think hive could use a few more scathing arguments in the midst of all this artificial positivity anyway, so "hey, fuck you" and etc.


{why does the answer have to be inside of a giant wall of text?}


None of this is even remotely surprising, and despite my permanent negative tone, I don't even think you're a below average person - I just happen to think that literally everyone on the entire planet is effectively retarded inside of a certain context, and there's a clearly demonstrated way of proving it, along with a very important reason for proving it. Among those things, there's no greater proof than someone attacking: it's written on the walls, and nobody can figure out why. In any community, in any format, on any website, it's always the same - and not a single one of those mindless legal drones has ever become self-aware enough to realize what is happening, so I don't expect you will either, it's fine.

Despite all of that, I think you're probably "a good person", not intentionally malevolent, but instead you are sincerely attempting to 'do the right thing', along with almost all other law-enforcer type people on the planet - and yet we already know exactly what they are going to do when suddenly faced with something that absolutely refuses to follow their literal-code of 1 trillion laws, even while they are repeatedly warned "do not attack". It's a suicide mission and everyone's on it.

The fact that you have any confidence in your ability to judge against something you don't understand is yet another point proven about people with power, along with this post illustrating a repeated instance of one of the very predefined ways they will react to certain things, so thanks. It obviously isn't enough to prove something like this once, it has to be done multiple times, over and over again in multiple formats.

To be clear and basic enough for anyone willing to understand:
all of this hostility is hostility against the archetype. (like I said, a catalyst)

congratulations - anyone understanding how this works is suddenly a fucking pro.
