Active key to be used to give flags?


Recently there has been a large amount of abuse with flags over on Steemit.com and its becoming a problem. I was wondering what everyone else thought of possibly making it so every flag requires you to put in your active key. Since a flag is a lot more serious then up voting i see it being very useful to prevent abuse. 

Yes I'm sure someone will make a bot to do it. If someone is taking the time to bot flag people well i guess the community finds out how they really are. Before it becomes i problem i think its best to take the steps on Golos to handle this problem before it really shows up. If you have been watching then you know someone has already came to Golos and started to abuse the flag system for personal malicious reason. 

This problem might not concern you yet but there is a chance you might say something that could make someone mad. Then they come and destroy your rep / all your post rewards just to get even. So if you believe there is something we should do say it, no need to worry if you speak up this effects everyone.

On the GOLOS there are no problems with the flags.
It's funny that the owner of the bot named @berniesanders came to us from steem :) I think the golos became Fighting arena for users from Steem :)

And the problem is in your flag culture

Yeah it is but as the more cultures join the platform the more unpredictable the situations becomes. Hell it might not even be needed at all but it something to put some thought in on.

They are called flags on the website but underneath it, the actual transactions are negatively-weighted votes, or downvotes. I hope Golos fixes the discrepancy just like Steemit is going to do. Golos could even beat Steemit to the punch with the pace of development that sometimes happens!
