Of course it is, there is a whole list.
But that is outright abuse mitigation.
Not all bad.
This, however, seems to be malicious.
Here is the body and title of the post:
Why you shouldn't support the whalevoters and gangs.
When a whale votes, everybody else's vote loses power.
If a whale votes with enough sp to take up 10% of the votes cast on any given day, that 10% comes at the cost of everybody else that voted.
The only way to spread the math out is if the very largest whales don't vote.
If you join one of the gangs to be better rewarded what eventually happens is only gang members get rewards.
Did you notice the drop off in rewards when they came on the scene? I did.
If you are gonna delegate sp to somebody, pick somebody you like and delegate it to them.
If your posts are not getting rewarded, work harder, or longer.
When you buy votes from the whales all you are doing is making them even more powerful, if they voted their full weight our votes are diminished in proportion.
They can literally suck up the pool in such a way that nobody continues to play.
If only one minnow votes, the entire reward pool goes to that vote.
If a minnow votes and a whale votes each vote is given weight in proportion to the sp balances of the voters.
So, if the whale votes 89% of the sp in the pool then the minnow's vote is 11%
You can see how quickly the largest whales voting causes their influence to overwhelm the minnows'.
This is the same math that occurs when you join in the gangs, when they vote enough sp the minnows at the bottom of the influence ladder get knocked off.
Personally I am looking forward to the day that all these intiatives disband and disburse their sp to their respective members.
On that day the whole will have taken back it's power from those that think ganging up to have more power is ideal.
Can't imagine why stinc would want to ban that link from their frontend, can you?
Here is the proof of what some of us have known for some time now, stinc is intent on forcing their world view on everybody that uses their platform.
They do not walk the decentralized walk.
Free speech is not their goal.
If you don't brown nose them they will break your links.
That has been common knowledge for some time, but here is proof of my very own.
I've made this post on Tuesday the 13th of August and put it in my steempeak queue.
The experiment will be to see if this post is still 'broken' when this post posts.
