In some sense I agree with you but trending has a dual purpose. One is to show "interesting" content that people might want to view or read, and the other is to show what voters are awarding with payouts. If a lot of payouts are going to these, then why shouldn't that be considered "trending"?

Probably we should have separate lists, but it always starts to get unclear when you try to decide what is "good" or "worthy" of some sort of treatment and what is not. According to whom?

You're using a lot of words to say that trending posts are those that make lots of money. @Drutter's succinct point is that what's trending is bullshit and spam. A response that bullshit and spam are trending is kind of useless and circular, no?

Sort of. These posts don't make any money, it all goes to @null.

To me it is significant that many voters prefer paying to no one over a lot of the other options, or at least along side them.

So in a lot of ways @Drutter and I (and other @burnpost voters) agree.

The solution is more, better, posts that not only add value but compellingly demonstrate it. There are some posts that outperform burnposts, usually for good reason. We need more of those.

This isn't an issue of Trending, it is an issue of not enough high-value contributions.

It is an issue of trending, if trending is the landing page for newcomers, and all they see is how desperate STEEM's situation is.... same with all the SPUD...

I agree, just don't know what is the solution other than for posters (with more "interesting" posts) to up their game so they can get draw more votes.

maybe you should mention the way you vote late; won't change the world, but maybe a bit ;)

I will include that in the FAQ I'm working on now. Should be in the next posts.
