Am I Doing This Open Letter Right?
Feel free to engage me on this post to get an idea of why I posted the updated soft fork code. Also do be sure to read the commit message for some further insight. I will leave it below for quick access.
Steem Protection Fork : This soft fork may never have to be implemented depending on how further interactions between Tron/SteemIt and the Steem community elected consensus witnesses. This code change represents a minor modification to limit a certain number of transactions for known SteemIt, Inc accounts as well as for some exchanges that have shown they are willing to participate in DPoS governance using customer funds. For more information regarding the soft fork please look at https://steemit.com/steem/@softfork222/soft-fork-222, https://steemit.com/tron/@steemitblog/an-open-letter-to-the-community-hf22-5, https://twitter.com/justinsuntron/status/1234690483298820097, https://twitter.com/VitalikButerin/status/1234537996868653056, and do further research via Google/Twitter/Medium or just look for published news articles. Steem Protection soft fork is a protest to the use of SteemIt, Inc ninja-mined stake in reward distribution, witness voting, and proposal voting. These actions have always been understood to not be something SteemIt, Inc would partake in using the ninja-mined stake that amounts to at least 20% of the entire STEEM funds in existence. On top of the SteemIt, Inc stake, Binance, Huobi, and Poloniex teamed up with Justin Sun (Tron) to circumvent the community elected witnesses by misusing depositor funds on their respective exchanges. These actions have been deemed inacceptable by the Steem community and the witnesses are taking charge to retain ownership of the Steem blockchain. The witnesses believe Justin Sun is under the perception that by acquiring SteemIt, Inc, he also acquired the Steem blockchain. There has been much false reporting, fear mongering, and uncertainty that the soft fork code implemented in this repo has become necessary.

Thanks for Reading and Don't Forget to Vote for the HUMAN Witnesses!
If you haven't done so already, join the fight against #Tron @justinsunsteemit and his band of hooligans by voting for the HUMAN witnesses on the witness list. They are easy to spot if you visit https://steemd.com/witnesses and take a look at their pricefeeds. Take a look at the picture below for an example; notice that our known HUMAN witnesses have updated price feeds (AND MORE VOTES THAN THE SOCK PUPPET #Tron FAKE WITNESSES)
@elipowell, feel free to power up the 12k STEEM you have in your account and actually use and participate with the community via the social media site you represent. Or is SteemIt.com too complicated or just not of interest to you?
I would love to engage you in public where all eyes can see. No sneaky games, no behind the scenes requests to chat. Me, you, AND THE WHOLE WORLD!
