I am now going on a rant post
Mainly because even though I have asked to be excluded from what I considered reward pool rape posts and I have been ignored and have been included in more of @cryptobloggers posts the "Daily Smoke Report" It does not add any value as it is the trending list. STOP Raping the reward pool. Anyone can go look up who is trending, as there are two ways to access that list. We do not need you posting it daily. I am going to start flagging all accounts who tag me in a trending list. It would be one thing if you are making a listing of content you think you think people should read, like I wouldn't mind if it was @cryptobloggers readables or something like that, but this is a copy and paste of the trending list. And it being rewarded, is raping the reward pool and we as a community need to stop rewarding, those who are raping the reward pool.
There are also users doing daily Smoke Price reports
Posting the price of smoke is a waste of space as there are so many places anyone can check the price of smoke. We do not need anyone on the platform wasting space on the block chain and raping the reward pool. It does not add value to the platform.
Adding value to the platform
There are ways those who do these type of post can actually add value to the platform and not do actions that are considered by those who are veterans to the block chain reward pool rape. These two actions I have stated above is reward pool rape. And I for one, am taking a stand against it. I don't want to be tagged in your trending lists. If you have read my article and you think it is worth a read and you want to make a post on posts you think others would enjoy that is a readable list, that is not a copy and past from the trending page, that adds value. If your readable's is just the trending page, you are still raping the reward pool. And if you are posting the price of smoke daily. STOP, and find something else to post about because your spam is not wanted or needed.
If this offends you sorry, not sorry
I am trying to help Smoke grow into a platform people want to come to. Where the content is unique, that is why I went on my rant a few weeks ago about cross posters. It is also why some have seen I stopped upvoting their content because I have found they are cross posting on Steemit, Whaleshares, Weku, and countless other of sites. Why would anyone come here where they can find the exact same content across 20 platforms? They won't, they will go else where so it is the responsibility of all of us early adapters of smoke to make sure we are posting Unique content to Smoke and not cross posting articles else where. Promote smoke else where yes, but stop cross posting. Being greedy may get you short term rewards but being giving gives you long term rewards. Greed gets short term gains but in the end it destroys.
Greed is partly what make the world a bad place
Throughout history there are examples of greed and how it has caused so much pain in the world. From government, to corporate, to individual, it destroys countries, families and homes. It is sad there is so much greed in the world and IMO posts that do any of the things I have mentioned is a form of greed. This post might piss a few people off but I feel that these things need to be said. I am saying this because I want to see changes in how people use the platform. I want to see unique content, I want to see lists of content others find readable, so I can find new authors who might have flown below the radar. I want to see what isn't easily found, not what can be found with a click or two.
I love Smoke.IO
This platform has given me a voice to talk about something I am passionate about, cannabis. As the plant has a big huge place in my life. I can't function without it, because of the pain I suffer from, if I didn't use cannabis I would be on opiates because of the pain I am in. Being able to talk about the struggles of being in a black market as a medical patient has helped me in so many ways that I can't even being to express. But I worry if this reward pool rapes keeps up that we will end up dying before we can even get started. My first love of blockchain social media is currently struggling because of similar things that happened. So please stop with your spam and lets make smoke.io the best blockchain social media site on the blockchain.
Note I haven't started flagging anyone yet, but any lists that tags me that isn't a readable's list will start getting flagged if it is a copy and paste of the trending list
