💩 Why Is Steemcurator04 Upvoting This Crap?

4개월 전

Whilst looking at some old content this evening, I made a discovery. Quite an odd one, and one that perhaps @oppongk can easily explain.

Has @oppongk had access to the @steemcurator04 keys? Does @oppongk still have access to these keys? Whether he did or still does or not, I don't know. Perhaps a question that @steemcurator01 or @steemitblog will be able to answer. That's a lot of questions already. So why am I asking these questions?

19 days ago, @steemcurator04 upvoted this (without leaving the "traditional" comment of who was upvoting it):

21 days ago, this (again, no message and to save me repeating myself, none of them had comments):

image.png

There are loads more posts like this. A photo. All of them upvoted by @steemcurator04. All of them crap. Were the curation accounts created to upvote crap? I doubt it.

If we go back a little further, we find plenty more like this one...

image.png

By plenty, I mean PLENTY.

All upvoted by bidbots, all upvoted by @steemcurator04. More crap. Lots of crap. So much crap. Upvoted by bidbots and @steemcurator04. Let me remember something somebody wrote recently...

  • Don't use bid-bots.
  • Write atleast 250 words if it's not an art post.
  • Post must be #steemexclusive
  • Use the correct tags assigned for each theme. Tag details are below.

Hang on, what's the 4th one? Oh, and the 5th one. I'm pretty sure the 1st rule's been broken too.

Perhaps they're new rules.


At this point in time, I don't even know if @oppongk has ever had the @steemcurator04 keys. But you know, jigsaw pieces...

I just know he's a country representative for Ghana. One who very recently was concerned about plagiarism and the volume of abuse on Steemit.

So, shall we do a deep dive into this particular user that's been upvoted so heavily - @martins-steem? Let's look at his top 3 upvoters...

image.png

Now how many of you can claim to have a steemcurator as a your biggest fan? How many of you have had such overwhelming support from a steemcurator account by posting crap photos? Anybody? No. Thought not. @steem-ghana seems to like him too.

So let's take a quick look at his wallet....

image.png

What do we make of this? Withdrawing to the same wallet address as oppongk (which isn't unusual, anna01, his wife is there too).

Good earnings from posting crap and receiving @steemcurator04 upvotes. Now the final piece of the puzzle that I can't find, can you help me? Does, or did, @oppongk have access to the @steemcurator04 keys? And have we bestowed the same privilege with the steemcurator relaunch?


Is @martins-steem another account for @oppongk? Are they related? Does it matter?

Would this be considered abuse of steemcurator privileges? Is this acceptable behaviour for a steemcurator? Admittedly, it's not the worse I've seen, but it looks wrong to me.


On a daily basis, we see users complaining that they don't receive support. That they look at the trending page, and crap is being upvoted by bidbots. What's the excuse for steemcurators to be upvoting the same crap that everybody is complaining about?

I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Hi @endingplagiarism, that was very interesting post and it is really a wonder that you came across it. It seems that the account @martins-steem is used just for Vote-Farming and if you have noticed maybe because of your attention he is now Powering Down.

It is really interesting to see that he is also paying to @acidyo for Upvote:

image.png

Among the rest of different bitbotes is Acidyo and also @steemcurator04 that was curating Africa continent.

Also that he started Power down 26 days ago:

Looking at this upvotes, there are definitely the Team of Ghana curators:

image.png

@steem-ghana, @oppongk and @bettervision that also belongs to Ghana community.

In my previous posts about Abusers there were many from Ghana community and I remember that @oppongk said that they are fighting abusers. But seeing that is makes me very angry, how such people Country Curators could lie and also abusing the system.

@steemcurator01 please check this post and also there are enough evidence to say that this behavior should be stopped. As I mentioned to you in the past @SC04-08 were given to Communities without checking what is happening within and now we can see that the users who supposed to be Curators but abusing it.

The way that now SC04-08 is only given for a month is a good idea, that will make people to really be honest adn do their job of Curators.

I think the community curator initiative would help us in filtering out the abusers on steemit. Hear me out:

In this first month of the community curators Initiative we already have an example of an exploitation of the power and now this. We already have some efficient users on steemit who are already fighting against abuse on steemit. I'll play my part as well. As much as possible. In my opinion, if we are sharp on the lookout for abusers, we'll find users who used to raise voice against abuse, doing exactly the same. If we stay vigilant during these times and I feel we'll observe a lot more abusers than we can think of.

·

Hope so, but when people retain the right of being curators and without being checked the temptation is huge we can see it in our real life and Politics it is nothing new.

The rotation of Curators and their teams should lead to the clarity.

Hello @stef1 and @steemcurator01,

Bettervision follows the Ghana trail along with many other Ghanaians and as such whenever the steem-ghana account votes anyone the account is automatically voted. We believe that this may be the reason why our account is affiliated to this upvote.

We may have to stop following the trail, thanks for letting us know about this.

·
·

Hi @bettervision, it is not an excuse that your account is only a part of trial, you should know what your account is Upvoting, if you are an active user, you can see on daily basis. Those suspicious actions should be cut down immediately and not waiting until someone will point like in this case, the whole reputation of Ghana community now under suspicion.

·
·
·

Indeed, we have stopped following the trail with immediate effect though and would be extra meticulous in where our upvotes go to. Thank you

Thank you for this post and this investigation.

A number of cases like this led us to move to the new Community Curator system.


@oppongk - would you like to give your response to this post?

·
Yes! I wouldn't like to respond to this allegation since if something is plotted or planned it sometimes difficult to be convinced. I don't know why Steem Ghana Community and most leaders have been tagged with so many issues of abuses and Plagiarism.

In most cases have I answered similar situation about this, more especially with @stef1 attacking our members and revealing that we are not doing anything as leaders.

What ever be the case, this wouldn't change the story of @oppongk loving Steem.

Well, @martins-steem is in Ghana and by all means he would need help from some of the leaders for transacting Steem. What is wrong if @martins-steem transact his Steem on @oppongk Memo? We really know most Newbies are not good with the exchange platforms.

Let's rather face situations objectively rather than attacks and wanting to get favour from others.

To deal with human situation is very complex and I wouldn't say I am hundred percent perfect , but to alert the person at first point of his mistake is good than to attack and win favour.

I am not actually happy about the kind of words that @endingplagiarism use to paint me black in this post and what more should I explain for my leaders to believe me?

Well, I working and making conscious effort to see the growth of Steem Ghana Community and other Communities we have created. Sometimes build a community entails patience and time, as most Newbies need more time to learn even as you have directed them. Sometimes you have to mix the flexible and sometime you have to be difficult. All these are factors one must employ.

I will leave the matter in your hands. Thanks for your attention and reply.

Thank you for replying although you've said a lot without saying anything.

I am not actually happy about the kind of words that @endingplagiarism use to paint me black in this post and what more should I explain for my leaders to believe me?

The explanation I'm interested in and I suspect that @steemcurator01 is interested in the same, is:

  1. Why have you used the steemcurator04 account to upvote posts that only contain a picture of a tree?

  2. Why have you used the steemcurator04 account to upvote posts that had already been upvoted by bidbots?

  3. What makes @martins-steem special that his pictures of trees are more worthy of an upvote than other people's pictures of trees? Or more importantly, other people's content which is infinitely more worthy of an upvote than a tree?

Whilst the sharing of an account is not uncommon on Steemit in the name of "helping a newbie" (who joined in August 2019), it's somewhat uncommon for a country representative to break all of the rules that come with the privilege of being a steemcurator... and then also "helping them" to withdraw the funds that you've curated for them into your wallet.


It is understandable that you are "not actually happy" with the kind of words that I have used. I can assure you that many of us, myself, @stef1 and all of the country representatives that did an honest job with their steemcurator keys before they were taken away, are "not actually happy" with your abuse of this privilege.

I wouldn't be interested in any further argument. But I could tell you that this is hypocrisy and political. Let me ask, Where were you when all these things were going on? When was the last time when @martins-steem make a post? Where were you when you felt that @martins-steem were given more opportunities that he did deserve it. Were you powerless at that time. Is it because you feel that we are no more handling the Steemcurator04 Account that has given you more power? If you are a good brother, that seek for justice, you would have privately notify me if you felt this was a mistake rather than revealing it here. And that's why I talk of hypocrisy and politics on the part of you. You now have the opportunity to reveal all these things. Let's maintain the truth and eliminate hypocrisy from Steem so that we can move forward. Now if you have the gud to tag most of our pillars who happens to be the umbrella of the community, what do you think would be the position of our community growth?

What you and @stef1 are doing is just to gain fame and favor and nothin else. I don't give up when want to paint me black and spoil my reputation. I wonder if you really stand for justice and fighting Plagiarism you could use such words that have been sugar coated as a sign of getting some fame without even considering my status.

Let me ask, is that how we tackle issues?

Thank you again for taking the time to reply and I'm pleased to hear that you have avoided engaging in further argument.

a sign of getting some fame without even considering my status

I see that you believe you have earned the right to abuse your access to the steemcurator04 keys.

Your perceived value... your perceived status as somehow significant or important in some way does not alter the fact that you have abused your position.

You have abused the privilege that Steemit gave to you.

You have abused the "status" that the Steemit team created for you.

You have abused the trust that the Steemit team has bestowed upon you.

In thinking that your "status" on this platform in any way gives you the right to abuse your position in this way totally justifies why people like me, people like @stef1 can write posts like this, highlighting that no matter how big your ego is, how important you think that you are, you are not immune to the consequences of the abuse that you undertake.

I don't give up when want to paint me black and spoil my reputation.

I suggest that you revisit your actions. Revisit what you have written. Revisit your abuse of the steemcurator04 keys.

You have been caught. You have spoiled your reputation. You have done these things.

You only have yourself to blame.

That is what I talked of you being political and fame and nothing else. This is not actually someone who want justice and peaceful for members to act. There are lapses in any human activities, no matter what, but we have ways of tackle issues professional. What lies the professionalism of your work???

·
·
·

·

I can't help but feel that you're having a different conversation to the one we're involved in.

What lies the professionalism of your work???

I have professionally caught you abusing your position.

I have professionally highlighted this to the community, in particular those people that had put their trust in you.

I have professionally discussed this with you (despite your repeated attempts to make this about me, and not the topic being discussed - i.e. your abuse of your position as country representative)

How much more professional do I need to be?

Or is it really compassion that you seek? Because you don't seem to appreciate my professionalism.

Apologies, I ignored the first half or you "not arguing".

I discovered it 2 days ago when I wrote the post. I discovered it on the day that I discovered that you could buy upvotes from acidyo. I shared it on the day that I discovered it. My thinking went along these lines:

"@oppongk replied to my post about edmund.nef. He said that he was against plagiarism and he is a country representative for Ghana. Interesting, he receives strong steemcurator support. Surely a country representative should set an example to the community? Why's he upvoted a picture of a tree? That's odd. Why's he upvoted everything that martins-steem has posted? He must really like trees. After bid-bots too. Something's not right here. Let's look at martin-steem's wallet. Ohhhh, well I guess that makes more sense. @oppongk is a scammer, I wonder how I can articulate this in a way that presents the evidence clearly, leaving enough scope to be wrong. So that if there's a reasonable explanation, that @oppongk can share his side of the story."

That, my political opponent, is how we came to be here.

To be honest, I expected your side of the story to be more interesting. Perhaps involving Covid, a relative or your wife upvoting these posts without your knowledge.

You might believe that you are somehow important to my world. That you are somehow important to the future of Steemit. I don't believe that you are either.

You are simply another fool, in the long line of fools who has achieved a position of relative power, abused that position, and are upset to see all of that hard work come crashing down around you.

I'm sorry that I didn't catch you 3 weeks ago or earlier and then I could have saved us not arguing about the timing of my post.

·

@oppongk - thank you for responding.

However you have not answered the question of why you voted for all these posts by @martins-steem which clearly should not have been voted on by @steemcurator04.

What is your answer to that?


Please give a concise, simple and honest answer.

Most of what you have written in your comments here so far is not relevant, incorrect or just nonsense.

·

🙏 Sir, @saad55 first of all look at me with a look of forgiveness. If I do not submit the test form in advance, I will not be tested. It will not be possible for my family so I need your cooperation.

·
·

You think what I have written is irrelevant, incorrect and nonsense. Instead of listening to my side of the issue, you went on to redraw all votes that you have given to me as a first sign of anger completely finding me guilty of the issue. And I see this as unfair on the grounds of settling issues on two parties.

That's rather injustice and bad treatment of your leaders. Can you also explain why you redrew all the upvotes given to me before listening to my side of the issue??? Is it how we treat our leaders???

Many instances of redrawing upvotes from members have occured of which you never explained and leaders too have kept quiet.

Comeon bro, they are just asking you to answer a simple question.

Your behavior is not the way how Leaders respond. Give a one liner and answer the question. Simple.

Had this been done, neither the rewards would have been taken back nor they would have to engage you in this whole long chat!

This is getting too silly @oppongk, why can you not answer questions easily and honestly.
In Norway, we call such answers to be out rowing to try to save oneself.

·

·

@oppongk

You have had plenty of opportunity in your various responses above to give your side of the story.

But you still haven't answered the question -

However you have not answered the question of why you voted for all these posts by @martins-steem which clearly should not have been voted on by @steemcurator04.

What is your answer to that?

Not answering this question does not help your case in any way, and really just leads to a negative conclusion.

Thanks very much @steemcurator01 and @endingplagiarism!

To redeem my reputation support for my community members, I humbly redraw all insubordination action of words in my responses to this issue.
