Got Ghosts! #flags #smokeio #share2steem

I am making this post from smoke exile! The last couple of days I’ve been testing several scripts that went haywire & way out of control! Testing out flag software is a dirty job, but somebody’s gotta do it!

Good news is I’m working on some more new flag visualization right now, and in the upcoming weeks, months, until something cooler comes out!

So that’s the truth why I had to go and get y’all all riled up, was so I could launch the flagbot wars! No just kidding, i had to test it that day, and I thought perfect everyone was negs anyway, finally had my opening! I heard flags are in season, steemit even got a new downvote button! And yes I did flag someone today in steemit! It was on purpose, we were testing someones code! lol flags happen! Thats what I do lately, I work with flags, I need to learn more about them, so it is inevitable that you may get flagged by me again one day, or two, if it happens just remember I only flagged you because I liked you!

Thanks 🙏 for your cooperation!
Looks like a lot of people had no idea it was still the month if April fools!

Unflag my posts, or I will continue to flag you. Flag me again and you will wish you had not.

but like, he has more SP than you

·
·

But I like, have more friends on here than he does... His posts are going to 0, mine are not... I'd say I'm winning.

·
·
·

looking cool while at it, too!

·

I upvoted your star wars post?? I cringed and reached in slow motion to the mouse to and screamed to the bot "Noooooo! " but couldn't stop it in time, so whatever! I was trying? I subconsciously let my bot mess up! That's about as good as I can do.

If people don't get used to flags it will lead to ridiculous entitlement for rewards and feel like you're "stealing" money off of them, saw it happening on Steem and I'm glad they're moving towards downvotes now instead.

·

I don't get it. So, everybody should just randomly be flagged?

·
·

Once people accept they are an integral part of the ecosystem they won’t get offended by them anymore and move on.

Anybody is free to do with their stake what they want to do. If that means they disagree with the amount of rewards received... so be. They are as much a form of free expression as anything else.

There is no obligation to be just positive. Go to Medium if that’s what you want. Without them we will see prolific comment selfvoters, Sybil attacks and bot armies upvoting comments, etc etc.

I’m not saying I agree with flag wars, I’m just saying that this platform wasn’t built by the Care Bears. At the same time it’s like with property theft... most people could but nevertheless won’t and will behave socially. The best way to deal with flags is to accept their existence and occurrence. And everybody has the right to both up- and downsmoke.

If somebody goes rogue... more often than not the community will act and counter damage done. That’s what communities do. Within the means of the possible, of course.

Edit/Addendum: Nobody should think that they should not be flagged/downvoted. That’s when the problems start, because one feels they are above the freedoms others have.

@unnamed perfect explanations. I totally get it. Thanks.

·
·

Well if I picked and chose who to be flagged, now that would be wrong. So it was just randomized! Good question! It was just an experiment gone to the extreme! Plenty of people flag here, this post was flagged by people even though I explained what was going on! Maybe go after them!

·
·
·

Please don't get me wrong. I'm not going after anyone. I want all of you to stop flagging each other for no other reason than disagreement. And I call the one the smartest who stops it first. And from my understanding, that was @tecnosgirl and you already aknowledged it, so why go on?

·
·
·
·

Because look, she went back to flagging me! Her and joesmoke!

·
·
·
·
·

alright, your chance to become the smart one?!

·
·

O.K. the truth is, i did not even have the click on the downvote ok button, the bot acted on its own accord! I am serious, it was a glitch! Not much else to say, end of story!

·
·
·

Sorry, @hightimes. I don't want to accuse you of anything, but you and your bot got something in common, which is editing almost every comment after writing it. It shows me two things:

  1. Your story can't be the whole truth. This bot is suspiciously acting like you.
  2. Editing SO MANY comments is an indicator that you react instead of responding. You don't think it through, you just fire and later think it through and edit it. But you have already caused new reactions before you change them and actually, it is causing a lot of chaos. We can't communicate like that.

Fine, don’t comment on my post anymore if you are going to complain, get over it, leave me alone. Look i just unfriended you, sen you so e flags, that how this works. You piss me off today!

·
·
·
·
·

As you wish. I won't unfollow and occasionally upvote the content that I like you for. I hate war. You're my brother.

Are you ok, @hightimes? Am I watching a social experiment? Are you an agent, sent to divide us? Do you live in another timezone where there's the 1st of April every day? Are you from this dimension? Is this AI taking over, Alien Intelligence (wow! I never noticed that would be AI, too … intriguing) … gotta' go, find the right rabbit hole for this connection … Hope everything settles in the meantime and I am not being flagged.

·

@ rawpide flagged me today, he initiated a new war with me! So he better not complain if i flag him back, which I just did! his choice to continue fighting!
Screen Shot 2019-05-03 at 9.28.09 AM.png Not flagging him with bot, just taking him out of the friend-voter!

·
·

You flagged me for no reason. You never apologized, you never unflagged. You will get flagged by more people than you can handle, until you submit, and grovel, sincerely, not this fucking bullshit you posted here.

·

I been upvoting you, not sure what ur so worried about??

·
·

About the network I love.

·
·

Don't tell half-truths. This is what went down. And a rogue bot BS. The upvote was accidental I would have let it remain but then you called me an idiot. The only thing I apoligized for was using the wrong word. Nothing else so don't pretend anything else.

Then you messaged me this.

And I responded this way stop lying trying to make yourself look better.

Honesty goes a longer way than anything else.

I did not mean idiot like your not smart idiot! I am an idiot, as in not smart, idk, I admit, but I'm learning! I meant idiot because you kept referring to incorrect facts! Still you posting our personal conversation on the public blockchain like that might be illegal! You and joeschmo go remove yours, I anin't doing a thing!

And that upsmoke was accidental, lol yeah right! you just lied! "You caved, and then you caved again!" -- Vaped!

You are slandering my name and I have every right to defend it. And My flags will stand, this is my last conversation with you and your multi personalities. And it was very accidental as I was on my phone when it happened, I will never ever give you an upvote ever again, I am done with you and this. People see what you have done, they see you keep editing your comments, they see you are lying.

oh you really f*cked up didn't u. i have forgiveness in me. just don't do it again. and admit you did. a bot isn't capable of such well composed comments ...

·

A bot isn’t capable of such well composed comments...

Clicketyclick

I doubt that tech is in play but neural networks have exponentially improved the NLP applications and expect that tech to start finding affordable implementations as soon as 2020/21. Note that paper, with those examples, was published in 2017.

So what you’re trying to say is you’ve developed a script (cough “bot”) which checks and acts upon comment voting “abuse”?

·

Yup, like a bunker buster the hit infiltrates the concentration areas! So i.e. if the bot sees congestion high paid comments next to rawpide it attacks! rawpide is just an example, since he opt d to be the test subject!

·
·

And how do you aim to prevent/counter sybill attacks?

·
·
·

Testing is testing, does not go on forever, from temporary!! I plan to upvote way more than I downvote, so just by organic growth I will counter sybill attacks! I will look into it more.

After you are done flagging your friends, what will be next?

·

Yeah, but real friends would not care about a flag! I was also weeding out some peeps!

·

Upvotes will be next. I am going to erase the flags, don't worry! That is the thing I am programming to undo next.

One day it happened to me too when I posted 2 posts per day)) I had to quickly correct the situation and click "delete post")))

·

It really is not a big deal, to flag or not to flag, that is the question! Thanks!

I got flagged and downvoted like crazy when I started here. I just muted those people and everything was fine.
