Work, work, work
I'm still focusing on two users but the list includes much more abusers, so every whale who would like to add something from themselves is mostly welcomed to downvote on their own. I know it's not possible to win every battle and sometimes I regret that I called myself Anti Cheat Cheetah instead of Don Kichote, but every single dollar saved by us is a small win.
I'm still into Rayan0, who is so weak that downvoting him (her) is not a big problem. In fact, I'm doing it with my personal account to not use the trail unnecessarily. I'll wait until (s)he will get tired.
The second case is well known to everyone who is following my battle - it's feelregret who is downvoting their SP (the nearest downvote is planned for tomorrow). That;s the biggest active downvote on the platform and we are very proud to say that we helped to cause it. Every single dollar taken from that abuser will make Steemit stronger. Of course, we will be following the activity of that user, checking if he will transfer STEEM to the new account. If so, we will continue downvoting it.
If you want to help, go to https://steemworld.org/@feelregret - scroll down to author rewards, mark "hide dust payout" and click "refresh". You will see the list of his posts that were self-upvoted. Click on any of them, make him a visit and downvote them with 100% VP.
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
- victorialegend who is posting the same content four times (admins of the communities were informed about the abuse)
- olivepainting is sharing the posts with one photo and one word, sometimes just a word or even a few signs to milk the system with the help of upvu
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.
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. Last three days the great job was made by @adeljose who detected three new cases of the plagiarists. Thank you for that!
Two country representatives are leaving the platform
In the last few days two Argentinian country representatives - fendit and belenguerra started to make the 99% power-down. Their community "Writing and reviews" also power down all the SP they accumulated, which means it does not qualify for the booming support anymore ( @steemcurator01 )
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.
