RE: Shame on Azircon and co. for DV this. My Latest Investments: Splinterlands, Rising Star, Leo, HOT

You are viewing a single comment's thread:

@wil.metcalfe, it's been pointed out many times on her numerous accounts that she's plagiarized content - not just from the website she purports to own (which according to @hivewatchers, recently responded and failed her verification - do a search of the comments on her account & I'm sure you'll find the convo) but I believe from other publications like CoinDesk (I don't recall the specifics - again, I'm sure you can DYOR).

When someone continually and repeatedly steals content from other people across multiple accounts, they are blacklisted. That doesn't mean if they sometimes share original content (which seems to be the case here) they suddenly get a pass. She brought this on herself, and for some reason refuses to take responsibility.

And you want to talk optics? Championing someone who publicly bashes the blockchain for calling her on her abuse, and who goes so far as to publicly threaten people? That's really the Hive hill you want to die on, Wil?

He's too busy playing "hero", but not busy enough to do some research.

Is saying things like this absolutely necessary? If you knew me at all and were able to make any sort of judgment (and why are you judging people anyways?) about me... you would already know that this isn’t the point of what I’m doing here and what I’ve done in the past... it’s not quite as simple as your making it out to be...

You may continue to think yourself as such.

Did I need your permission to think for myself... no I did not.

Try taking your own advice when it comes to "judging" people.

I have nothing more to say to you... You have clearly laid your cards on the table. Congratulations...

Thank you for filling me in. This is much appreciated. I don’t want to be know for championing people who are knowingly abusing and taking advantage of this blockchain and will be sure to DMOR before proceeding.

What I would like to be known for, however, would be a Hive Owner who cares about the social well-being of those on this blockchain.

When things go sideways, when people abuse the good intentions of people on the blockchain (if we are zeroing out people’s upvotes... that’s lost potential... that’s a shame indeed!) those things certainly need to be dealt with... but not at the expense of our brand and marketing!

It wouldn’t do well for Hive to be known as a Zero Out Brand. How do you market that?

I really feel like we are all looking at the same problem... but perhaps we are looking at two different sides of the coin...

Every problem is just that! And opportunity. If we can find the edge... we can all innovate past this point and unlock the true potential of this blockchain!

So yes...

How we go about dealing with bad behaviour and bad players on the blockchain matters just as much as what we are keeping off the blockchain.

So again... thank you for explaining some of what has happened here... and also thank you for letting @Azircon know a little about who I am and what I stand for on this blockchain. You vouching for me was very appreciated.

But yeah... I guess I only have one other thing to say...

As an exercise in thinking outside the “blockchain” is there any other (less aggressive” way in which we could handle abuse on the blockchain?

How we implement the DV matters...

That is what I am championing.

Kind regards,

@wil.metcalfe

You're welcome @wil.metcalfe and I'm honestly done going back and forth with you about downvotes. You have your opinion, I have mine, and I think we've talked enough about it to know neither of us are changing our position any time soon. Not trying to shut you down, just letting you know I have other things I need to spend my time and focus on.

Also a bit of a clarification - in the other comment, I was actually vouching for @azircon, as you said you didn't know who he was. I can see that quickly parsing the beginning of that without reading the context of your previous comment may have made it unclear. I will edit the sentence now to make sure others don't reach the same incorrect conclusion.

I complete understand Traci and I actually feel much the same way. You have been very kind though so that speaks volumes about you. Thank you!

It’s good to know that there are still people in the world who can hold a decent conversation and still disagree... while being civil and friendly. I thank you most for this. ❤️

We can’t always agree in the moment... but as time shifts things around... as we both learn about ourselves and the social environment we find ourselves... we may both evolve (or perhaps solidify further) our beliefs about the things previously discussed.

You have my respect.

@wil.metcalfe
P.S. Thank you for clarifying. I did miss-understand but now it makes perfect sense. Thank you for filling me in further. It’s much appreciated.
