I've given up on any hopes on the invertebrates that purport to run Hive, actually doing anything but reinforce 'The Iron Rule of Oligarchy.'
Downvoting is theft.
It's taken away, without consent - from the accounts that have upvoted a post ....not the account that's has been voted for.
Downvoting may be financially very beneficial to the powers that be (in the short run), but unless the model is made with the intent of wealth extraction from the gullible and a disappearance into the night (fraud) , then it's a very shortsighted approach to growth.
It actually does the total opposite of growth, but hey...I'm way past the stage of trying to help anymore in this regard.
(you can throw me some dosh from the DAO if you like, for me to help out, 'cos you really fucking need some help - But only if it's not a commie technocracy that's trying to be implemented...)
*You can only help when you recognize the problem, but the willfully blind never want to open their eyes.
Nothing can ever be addressed if the participants of the problem, refuse to see a problem, or take steps to mitigate the problem.
DPoS, greed , and not looking long only helps to keep those blindfolds firmly in place.
Such is life.
You can't fix stupid.
The blatant bias toward dowvnoting on any 'anti-establishment' narratives on here, speaks volumes.
It's a weird fucking revolution, isn't it?
One that financially terrorizes anyone that dissents from the establishment condoned narrative...? A revolution?... lololol
Yeah, I've never come across that type of revolution before....
In fact, it's so far away from reality that it's almost like a psi-op propaganda tactic, isn't it?....black is white, up is down, and hive is revolutionary !
'Web 3.0' is no revolution, not if we are to use Hive as the example.
A revolution where 'might is right', and ethics have no relevance in governance
is just one tyrannical system being replaced by another...
...And that's a revolution how , exactly?
It's stakeholder capitalism , that's what it is - which is a one world technocracy, which is communism.
It used to be called communism, anyway.
Anyone with more than two brain cells to rub together soon worked out that it was a crap theory, written by a 2nd cousin to the Rothschild banking family - Karl Marx (no pennies dropping yet?...seriously?).
The crap theory turned out even crappier in it's execution - and there's always millions of executions with communism, on that you can count ...
DPoS with downvoting is the NON REVOLUTION implementation of a new tyranny.
(dressed up in 'woke mob, smiley faces', and cartoon avatars).
Don't be fooled by the image, look at the actions, and the same accounts just keep cropping up....
One action that I'm now embarking on, is moving over to Blurt to post my content.
A shit name, imo - but it's better than 'Hive'.
Who in their right mind would come up with a commie invoking image for a platform name ?
'Hive', 'Hive mind','the hive', 'worker bee's ' ...'the collective'...(communism).
Some one who see's 'the hive mind', 'the collective' as an attractive concept.
A commie would find that logo appealing for example (or technocrat if you prefer).
A freedom loving individual would ,most probably, not find it that good an idea...
Who then created 'Hive', or agreed to the name ?
...psssst - start asking the witnesses and ultra large stakeholders for more information.
I refuse to call the higher echelons of hive, whales, as I see no comparison between those graceful , intelligent, majestically moving vertebrates of the sea that I've had the pleasure to swim with, and the accounts that take on that moniker.
Commies think 'fear' and 'respect' are the same thing.
Respect is earned, and I see no one at the top, one earning it through their actions.
Respect can come from the exercising of power, with integrity...
Blurt is a much smaller platform, with less users - at the moment.
Why am I moving there?
I find that not having the specter of a downvoting, power hungry, greedy, idiot hovering over my content and playing god, a much more positive proposition....
How about you?
Downvoting predators aren't swimming in these waters..
Free markets dynamics, not tyrannical control dynamics.
....a more authentic 'free market' that's heading in the right direction - and a breath of fresh air when compared to the hive toxicity.
Negativity and criticism on Blurt, is left in the comments sections.
As it appropriate. Discourse is all.
That's called free speech.
That's to be encouraged - always.
It is not seen by the absence of any rewards in the authors wallets.
Content creators - The people who've spent their time and effort in making something that they see as having value do not have to 'bend the knee' on Blurt.
They do not have to cower, fearing some power hungry little man who likes to play at god, deciding the value of their work for them.
The free market can do that quite nicely on it's own.
...Speaking of free markets...
Imagine if people started exchanging their Hive for blurt...I wonder what would happen...?
