Steem: The honey badger of communities, fighting to protect decentralization and DPoS.

Challenge topic: Steem: The honey badger of communities, fighting to protect decentralization and DPoS.

Lies are camouflaged words that mimics the color changes of a chameleon!

The gardener arrived out of breath this morning to come and call me;"Come quickly, he is back"
I knew exactly who he was talking about, grabbed my camera and off we went.

Before I continue with this story, a twitter message that I read earlier seemed to settle in the back of my mind. It was a post by @goodwhales and @anomad about a challenge to spread the word.

So, we walked briskly down the road and entered mother nature's front door!


Remember the baby Dwarf Chameleon that I posted about 6 months ago?
Well it was our first time to see him again today.

Regarding the honey badger challenge human beings also have chameleon color change qualities, not in looks but rather in words.
What we say in the evening is not the same that we say the following day. It's called lies!
Something here to think about!

“People think that a liar gains a victory over his victim. What I’ve learned is that a lie is an act of self-abdication, because one surrenders ones reality to the person to whom one lies, making that person ones master, condemning oneself from then on to faking the sort of reality that persons view requires to be faked…The man who lies to the world, is the worlds slave from then on…There are no white lies, there is only the blackest of destruction, and a white lie is the blackest of all.”
― Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged


Look! Here is now, an adult dwarf chameleon as long as my finger!


He watched me carefully, as he seemed to remember that I handled him once and he did not trust me!
Just so it is with us when we discover that someone lied to us!

"Let my name stand among those who are willing to bear ridicule and reproach for the truth's sake, and so earn some right to rejoice when the victory is won".
Louisa May Alcott

So we discovered some lies and the result was a determination to stand up and to gather to fend for the truth!


A community united and ready to beat the odds. A community that stands for decentralization and to defend all that we have established over the years!

Oh yes! I hear you say, yes, but the witnesses will fight for us? No. Each of us is in this fight TOGETHER! You may not lead the fight, but every one of us has a role to play behind the scenes.

"It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership".
Nelson Mandela


Lies are like clouds that try to cover the strength of a mountain. There is no way ever that they can move, or hide the mountain.
We, the community is that mountain and we stand prepared for battle in the truth!


And so, whatever you do, never give up. Stay prepared and continue relentlessly to support each other on the way to victory.
We are called the Badgers! Fear None!

And That's All Folks!

Thank you kindly!

I've never seen a chameleon in the wild before. So lucky to have them around.

As for the metaphorical chameleon, more like a curse to have it around here. It's already hard enough to communicate between various cultures all over the world on the internet, we don't need people making things worse.

Great example and neat find.


Well one day when you visit here I will take you to my secret place to show you these rare little dwarfs.
The curse as you call it is certain;u creating havoc at the moment.
I see on twitter that we are all still out at sea.
Blessings and thank you!

dwarf chameleon is hidden with tree branch color. awesome photograph sir.

Great to see an update on this little character and a great post

Lets hope things can settle down on here soon and this drama come to ann end


Thank you JJ and I don't think this battle is going to end soon.
There should always be give and take in every argument such as this, but the two camps are sticking to their demands, which is never a good thing.


This we do, my friend. This we do.


Ah baby chameleon and big daddy around, yes changing colour to defend themselves in the wild, we have to stand up and be heard.

True old saying the power of the pen is stronger than the sword.


No, no Lady Joan, big daddy was the baby chameleon.
Saw on twitter that not has been achieved thus far and looks like it's going to be a loooong fight.
Sun wants a quick fix so he can give the exchanges their money back and the witnesses have plenty of time methinks.

Howdy sir papilloncharity! Magnificent photos of the dwarf chameleon and an inspiring post as well!
