Work, work, work
Opened cases are with the priority until the abuser change their habits or leave the platform, so we can't downvote all the Steemians we would like to, but... we are making notes and will visit all of them in the future. For now, majority of our SP is dedicated to feelregret, who is leaving the platform soon. Next in plans are four different big fish:
- ppomppu is making copy-paste posts with the link to the product for sale and short, 100% plagiarized description
- isisis is making the posts with one random word, just to earn the money from upvu
- bookreader is making two kinds of posts: one random word or screenshots from the stock market
- tomhall is sharing every day the screenshot with the value of BTC
All mentioned abusers are oriented on stealing the money from Upvu and don't understand what Steemit is for. As the priority I will be downvoting the most shameless, who are just sharing one random word each day.
Rayan0 is still posting the trash, so we are downvoting him regularly. We can play that game as long as he wants to - each downvote takes only 1% of our VP, so it's barely noticable change. Since the last report, we did not notice the activity of the b86 . The account will be observed regularly.
Besides that, we continue checking the plagiarism in the communities under the steemcurator guidance and we are marking on our list all the plagiarists to spread the news between the admins of different communities.
Link with the virus
Recently we can notice that some users started to share the comment with suspicious link that supposed to redirect you to the huge STEEM giveaway. Obviously, it's a virus and clicking the link may cause loosing the access to your account. We are trying to detect as many of those comments as possible and inform the admins of the communities about them, so they can mute them on time.
If you will see similar comments, please DO NOT click the link and immediately inform about it @ac-cheetah and the admins/mods of the community where it was found.
For the admins and mods
Every report includes the list of the abusers who shared plagiarism, spam or any other content against the rules. Make sure people suggested to block (with three or more abuse cases) are not able to publish anything in your community. People marked with the warning (W1 or W2) should be allowed to participate on Steemit, but it's worth to keep an eye on them and always double check what was posted from that accounts.
The cases detected after publishing first report has been marked as "NEW"

@ac-cheetah is not oriented on earning the money, so most of the rewards will be invested in developing new tools or, optionally, powering up to fight with plagiarists more effectively.
The income from all the future @ac-cheetah posts will be distributed between multiple accounts:
- 20% will go to @alexmove who is working on the automatization of plagiarism search on the platform. The money will be used to pay for external professional tools that detect plagiarism (the cost is 0.01 USD per post)
- 10% will go to @symbionts for launching the downvote trail
- the rest will go to @papi.mati for the manual work on searching abusers, downvoting, and for writing the reports
As we received a few delegations and we have some SP now, we distribute it on a daily basis to reward our account and team (we were requested to self-vote ac-cheetah to increase the voting power by our biggest donor, normally we do not do that). The rest of the votes are used to upvote users who detected plagiarism, community accounts of our partners and Steemians who joined the trail.
