Smoke is a fucking joke

Even during a quarantine this place only has 12 upvotes in the past 24 hours. I figured I would post the stuff I'm posting elsewhere while your all in quarantine and my job is paying me to be at home.

I see this place still doesn't curate quality content and will upvote absolute fucking garbage posts if posted by someone within the circle jerk.

Does this website have any traffic? Why would anyone post here if there's 0 reach?

·

Hey buddy, many recent hiccups have made it so we have little traffic but have been working on that... slowly 😅

Honestly I prefer to post here to get away from all the steem bullshit though this platform is full of its own idiots.

·

Not everyone is on here at the same time.... most of us are over on Steem, Hive, Publish0X, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube.... when we get around to it we do upvote good Content. I thought the video was great.

·

Yeah ... we are all stoned though.. So takes some time to read through everything and upvote. Have to just be patient... stay medicated, powered up and upsmoke. Sometimes I start to read a post, get distracted and forget to upsmoke.... It happens. Need to be patient. Sometimes someone makes an awesome post, posts a video... I go to watch the video on YouTube then get stuck over there for a few days... subscribing to their YouTube Channel, liking all their videos , clicking on all their Ads to help them make $$ .... it just happens. This is the Internet. Lots of distractions... then you add in the Cannabis and things go sideways for a few hours...

There's SOME traffic, would be more, but some people don't care to engage and a shit ton of the accounts here are simply alts of the active users. Mostly the largest shareholders are alts of the smoke dev team, so the distribution isn't where it should be either. It'll balance out with time, the real issue is that the top 10 witnesses are all put there, not chosen by the community. It's essentially another steem situation over here. Tons of stake that shouldn't have been reserved, reserved, and used to violate the agreement between the devs and the end users. It's pretty funny that people think this place is decentralized in any way. I've already proven it's not. They changed the code already, without actual community participation, because they have the top 10 voted in with the reserved stake. They act as if alts aren't obvious, but they are. A good handful of them are owned by the dev team as well. They're waiting for the value to rise to dump it all off, but I'm counting on it crashing and them trying to get what they can for the crypto they've withheld. All ponzis fail, with time, so this one will be no different. The difference is, if the ponzi does fall, it no longer becomes a ponzi... then, and only then, we can have true public governance of this blockchain. Until then, why would the traffic even matter, when the dev team controls who will be a top 10 witness and who will not? It's the same reason steem is now fucking worthless lol.

·

That, and the top witnesses here, aren't doing any development at all for us. Absolutely none. There hasn't been a single app put out for our blockchain since it's birth. The top 10 witnesses are fucking useless here, I would know, I'm a few of them. Still, my witnesses were never consulted about changes to the code. It was just implemented behind my back, along with many others.

When the dev team can manipulate the code however they choose, whenever they choose, without permission or consensus from the ACTUAL community... it's just another centralized piece of shit. lol

If you make great posts, i'm sure they will be upvoted. You can look at my vote history and see that i always upvote quality content 💚

·

@indica controls this place

·
·

If you want his votes, you have to make quality posts too. He does have a big stake but i feel so far he has always been fair to people.

·
·
·

He doesn't vote quality. I've posted some of the best posts this platform has ever seen. I don't care about votes anymore.

Once I had earned what I felt was enough smoke, I opened up about my true feelings/opinions, and Indica didn't like what I had to say, so he stopped voting me, started flagging. He doesn't care about quality, he has ulterior motives.

I don't feel like being part of a circle jerk as you called it despite the fact of having 13,000 SP. I feel like I earned it.

Whenever I post something to this blockchain, I am giving a lot of effort. It usually takes me 4 to 8 hours to produce an article. When I insert a video even longer. Sometimes, I am editing clips for days.

I also printed some stickers and distributed them all over Berlin and at the Mary Jane Expo last year. I care about this blockchain and I am being paid back for that. That's how I feel about my own assets.

When it comes to the content of others, nobody is obligated to read, curate or spread it. But I see we try because we care. Whenever I find the time, I read and curate on smoke.io. Because I care. So, if there's a new post and I happen to be here and see it and I see how the writer gave some effort, I will definitely upvote it.

I am following as many profiles as are following me.

OK, got triggered felt, like defending myself. Now I try to cater to you:

The 12 upvotes/24 hours thing is concerning, I see. However, we are only a hand full of people trying to make this thing work. And as @offgrid mentioned many of us are content producers. We are working anywhere else, all these networks. And this one is pretty specific in what content is being asked for. So, we're only posting here when we have something canna-related to say, right?!

I also agree that some of us are lazy but I don't see any way to criticize it. I'd rather focus on my own behavior. I am an Aries. I am pretty good at ignoring whatever others are doing and just trample my own path. It's the coolest property of my zodiac sign and I'd like to recommend it.

Please don't run, grow with us. :)

·

maybe you could be a little more specific? What is the circle jerk and who do you think is not being upvoted despite of posting quality content? Let's drop some names (mostly those unseen quality posters to focus on the positive, please!) to sort things out.

Here, have a drag of my Lemon Kush … puff, peace!

@indica is the biggest problem with this website. He controls way too much of the rewards pool. He blacklisted me over not liking an opinion I had, so he decided to flag me and not vote my content regardless of quality, because he doesn't like me. One person having that much power will cripple any platform. Indica has been driving people off this platform since day 1.

I left a while ago, I'm not coming back, I'm just posting during this quarantine due to extra time.

·
·
·

Language and intent is everything, @indica has been nothing but supportive for me along with @stoner which is funny at about the same time I started conversing with them support from others dwindled... 🤔 fuck it I just make content.

From what I have seen of you, being a late arrival, I am thankful he drove you off, if that is truly what happened, as I don't see much for supportive language only someone holding a grudge.

·
·

Indica is just a bitch in the first place. Says things about voting on quality posts, yet votes on crappy posts over better ones. Doesn't put higher vote weight to the quality posts, puts lower, because they are not his alt accounts. ;-) I THOUGHT indica didn't self vote at one point, but then again, how could I have been so naive? Of course that fucking loser does. LOL. The patterns emerged and it became obvious a while back.

You can see the garbage that gets voted on, compared to much higher quality posts, and just tell that indica is voting his alts. Only reason he'd vote higher on posts that are very clearly of much lower quality and lower on posts that are of much higher quality. It's like he's too fucking retarded to understand how obvious it is. X-D

Funniest thing above all is the shitty website indica made lol. It's so fucking poorly designed/put together. If anything, telling people it even exists, devalues smoke even more. It looks like something my fucking brother would have made when he was 8 and started learning how to code websites LMFAO. X-D

·
·
·
·
·

yeah, if I truly cared about earning more smoke than I already have, I could so easily create an alt tomorrow and start getting good votes from these fucking idiots @darian.

your 100% on Indica not giving a shit about quality, and you've got people like d00k13 with less than 70 IQ points thinking it's a good thing for the platform to drive people like me, who had a long history of posting quality posts, daily, off the platform.

·
·
·
·

Also funny how people think calling someone "delusional" because they speak the truth, invalidates it. Maybe if you're stupid. ;-) Those of us who actually have intellect though, are keen to the bullshit. You're fucking stupid when you try to discredit someone with words that have negative connotations, simply because you're too stupid to handle the truth/part of the scheme. I love the retards on this chain. ;-) The same dumbasses who hate on me, vote my main accounts daily. It's fun as shit watching these morons not know the difference. ;-)

lol indica is stoner or one of his team. He never "bought" any stake at all. It's pretty sad. The top 10 witnesses were also single-handedly put there by indica aka: stoner/his team. There have already been changes to the code which were not actually authorized, but they managed to use their power to put them in place anyhow. As I stated long ago, this chain has been hijacked for a long time. This is nothing new. This could change, but it's unlikely, unless they start selling off their withheld stake. That'll likely only happen when things get pumped, which won't really happen since they're making no fucking effort for shit. Stands to reason that the effort isn't there, because their names and faces are directly linked to this now, so if they go around truly promoting this to large names/places/organizations, they will know exactly who it is who scammed them and they'll have the resources to find that little fuckboy and his team. LOL. It's fucking pathetically obvious as to why no real effort has been put in by this shitty dev team.

Wow, a down vote from @darian, you must really suck...

Don’t kid yourself, teach, no one cares what you think. Funny how you always seem to stop back. How long do we got this time before you poke your sorry ass back in?

·

Hahahaha so true!

·

you cared enough to comment :P

·

It's hilarious, ya'll spent more energy on comments than I did on the post, and I'll be able to repeat that over and over again.

19 comments that made me LOL

I'm smokin on better shit than virtually all of you.

·

Most of the comments on here make me LOL, because most of the comments are people bitching back at me because I trigger their fragile little egos. ;-) If you look back at the posts for the past year, 90% of all comment activity, beyond my blockchain testing, was people arguing with/attempting to insult/attempting to mentally best me. Attempt being the key word, because these fucking simpletons couldn't best a pile of dog shit, intellectually. ;-)

I'm the main reason there's been so much engagement for so long now. When I stopped doing as I pleased, when I got blackballed (Temporarily, it was illegal.) from speaking here or having my comments show up, engagement dropped over 800%. These are facts too, actual statistics. Computer-calculated statistics. 800%+ drop in engagement after they tried putting a muzzle on me. LOL. You'd think that a place like this would thrive... but considering that the devs can't actually promote like they could if they weren't trying to scam people with large withheld stake and control over the witness list... our outlook is very fucking dreary at the current point in time.

·
·

Hilarious

This place officially failed

·

Good thing there is no official authority then SMH

·

Just have to keep posting ... add a few words about your awesome video. Be patient. Power up and upsmoke the good posts and you can earn a lot from Curation alone.

·

When I'm gone, fully, you'll know this place has failed.

There is hope still here, just very little.

Hoping the devs will make some positive moves and work towards offloading some of that withheld stake to us, to make this place actually decentralized and controlled by the people.... but it's unlikely. No piece of shit who thinks they need to reserve power or control for themselves or their group, will likely ever give up that power. Those who seek power, are the biggest pieces of shit, and should not have any power in life to begin with.

It's funny because they've sought power over me since conception, yet I have retaliated and put them in their places every single time. This place doesn't allow pieces of shit to have power over me, because I am more intelligent than the majority of the other users and because I will not sit here and let dumb pieces of shit break the law to violate my rights, on any level.

Those who are in power here, need to give that power up, THEN, there will be progress made. Until then, it's just a ponzi where the devs held a bunch of the currency for themselves and are waiting on other people to put their money in, to cash it out. It's clear as day what these fucking invalids are doing, the thing is, if they don't stop/change their ways... it's going to blow up in their face.

·

Yet you keep coming back. You must be fucking retarded then, huh? Oh wait, that was a given. Just can't stay away. Pathetic, like your life. :-)

·
·

😘

·
·

@Darain, you're the only fucking retard here Bitch!

·
·
·

Keep it up with those flags too dumbass! ;-) You're losing curation on that vote power, while I sit here and upvote my alts along with random low earning comments, for maximum curation! Fucking retard! X-D You're trying to hurt me, but you're only stunting your own growth. Pretty much sums up just about how fucking stupid you are. ;-)

·
·
·

Look, the little copyright infringing bitch decided to run his mouth off to me again, how cute. :-) It's hilarious how fucking pathetic your life is. LOL. I'd kill myself if my life were anything as pathetic as yours. I wouldn't be able to bare being alive, being that pathetic... Knowing my life was fucking worthless and I was a loser... That's just me though. ;-)

GO FUCK YOURSELF!

Don't be upset there is a hand for you if you have a hand for me 😆

·

I'm satisfied with your downvote.

@Rawpride, I have followed you since day one of signing up on smoke because of the quality of your posts as well as many other top growers who no longer post here. I have to agree, there has been a huge drop in people leaving and upvoting. I don't understand the inner workings of smoke, but I do understand your concerns, and that's a badass grow light you have in your Platinum Kush Video:D

Make that 20 comments now! LOL

It's pretty clear who's alts of who here. Pretty sad too that they deny it so vigilantly when it's clear as fucking day. The most obvious one is stoner's alts. He never "showed up" until the final moments when the chain was having major issues before and I was talking mad shit to these peons, these simpletons... because he never left, he's been on his accounts witnessing things happen and participating in the conversations. This place has long been what Justin Sun just made Steem, centralized. Just look at the top 10 witnesses... not witnesses of any quality and that have developed next to anything for smoke... just some randos. The top witness is some fucking retard who's only in top because this chain was bought from the beginning, just like steem. The funniest joke is that Hive is any different. Without a complete reset of all stake, you're just changing who has control of the ninja-mined stake that steem is very famous for (Because it's reality and that's what happened.) and it's going to solve nothing. Just different controllers, same ol' chain. Dumb shit, basically. This place is simply steem 2.0, but for cannabis. In other words, a tribe of steem-engine... but it's an actual crypto on it's own, doesn't depend on a chain. Nevertheless, it's a niche and we see how well all those did with steem-engine.

This place was bought long ago and the devs control the whole chain, because they choose, ultimately and wholly, who will be in the top 10. It's not a "community choice" and the "community" isn't who's choosing who's in the top here. It's the same as steem, a small group/one person, is choosing who's the top here. None of that developmental stake should ever be used to vote witnesses in, but here we are, same place steem just finally got to, ultimate centralization.

·

Virtually everything your saying here is true. Funny how you decided to have animosity with me when we have a fairly similar opinion on this place.

There will always be SOME value... But over time... It will be diminishing.

I also wouldn't be back here if it wasn't for the global plandemic, you know this, don't act like a silly retard, your smarter than that.

·

Matter of fact, long before Justin Sun even came, the ninja-mined stake had existed and had been used improperly, just as the developmental stake had. The problem with anything steem-based is that steem was poorly coded and the community was never actually heard and responded to in any measurable way. That's what happens when you've got lazy, shitty, dev teams. (Like we do here.) Our fate will assuredly be no different. There will always be those who see use for these places though, even when there aren't many who share that view... So it will always have SOME value, as will steem.

Did you just go off about sun and steem on smoke 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

LMFAO

Wtf are you on about?
