Guys wish me safe flight :)

INTRODUCTION

line2.png

About a week ago, a friend of mine contacted me and suggested to join the second edition of this huge contest organized by @theycallmedan. Many of you, dear readers, are most likely familiar with @theycallmedan initiative and with rewards that were offered to winners.

To cut a long story short, the winning community would receive a total of 20k STEEM POWER delegation for an entire year. The only unfortunate catch is: the winner takes all.

After passing towards the second round (along with 20 other competing communities) and being placed at that time at 2nd place, I decided to "team up" with 2 other communities: @help.venezuela and @SteemChurch knowing, that by working together we may or may not have the chance to win main prize.

BUILDING ALLIANCES

line2.png

My main goal from that moment on was to give up my own goals and desires to become a "small whale" and instead help one of those two communities to win the main prize.

I imagined that it would allow to build great trust between a few community leaders, which in return can benefit greatly many people involved.

After all is there any better way of building TRUST, than investing my own time, energy and resources to support someones else cause? Working closely together with they CEO @Emiliocabrera has been very refreshing and I only learned to respect this person more than I already did.

Past few days have brought us much closer and we learned to work together. For that reason I already feel victorious on so many levels. Regardless of the results of this contest.

Few people already asked me what was the end result and goal I was trying to achieve. Some people were not pleased that I'm getting involved in supporting community build on common passion towards religion. And since they may have a valid point, please allow me to share my vision with you all.

WHY @STEEMCHURCH?

line2.png

In my previous post BUILDING AN ALLIANCE: Ambitious goal?
I introduced my idea of building alliance with my dear friend @achim03 (managing @help.venezuela) and one of Venezuelan community:

@SteemChurch

Main vision behind our collaboration with @SteemChurch was simple: I believed and I still do, that learning to work together and building trust can benefit many people from both our communities in real life.

How?

I'm personally in touch with a large number of Venezuelans and since SteemChurch is a Venezuelan community of Christians, then naturally introducing my followers to a local strong group of people supporting each other.

On the other hand, SteemChirch leaders would introduce some people from their own community, who know decent english and share similar passion toward blockchain, crypto, economy etc. And together with few friends we were planning to take those people "under our wings" and help them grow.

After all (the way I see it) Venezuela is a frontliner when it comes to mass adoption of crypto by regular people. Because of their current situation and lack of stable currency. So my ultimate goal is to support those people with knowledge, experience and time.

Which I believe is in the interest of everyone involved in crypto.

ps. I also would like to mention, that leaders of SteemChurch agreed to my suggestion that in case of our victory (we were winning at that time with almost 20 votes) they will share some of received prize with 2-3 other competing communities. They proved that we have very similar values and view on life.

FULL RESPECT for that!

CONGRATULATION TO @SteemitBloggers

line2.png

Competition isn't over yet, but at this stage is pretty obvious that @SteemitBloggers managed by @jaynie and @zord189 are going to be a leaders in that contest.

Congratulations to both of you.

Just yesterday SteemChurch finally has been strongly ahead leading this competition and then I started receiving messages asking me if it's true that we're playing dirty and paying people to vote on SteemChurch.

I'm sure anyone can imagine how surprising and shocking it has been for me, to realize that we were accused of "buying votes" it just to win.

The impact of those wildely promoted accusations has obviously an enormous impact on our campaign. I must be really naive, as I believed that contests like this one should get people and community leaders together. And I didn't expect that one can reach out for those resources and discredit so badly work of others.

Small (very mild) example of things I've learned about us:

I think we should all remember that Steemit is very small and many of us have mutual friends. And obviously seeing printscreens full of hate and accusations is simply painful. That's just wrong.

What I've heard about "myself" within the past 24 hours really put me off from participating in this contest for much longer. Is this what this platform has come to? Reduced to slandering other communities just to get ahead of a "competition"? Worst of all, there were no facts nor evidence of this blatant accusation.

IMPORTANT STATEMENT

line2.png

I would like to reassure everyone here,
that based on my knowledge noone supporting @SteemChurch, @help.venezuela or @crypto.piotr during this contest paid to anyone for voting on them.

I need to make it clear and I can only hope that those words were only said by our "competitors" in the heat of the contest. I do not hold hard feelings for anyone involved.

As a matter of fact, if somehow SteemChurch would win, then my suggestion of sharing part of 20k SP delegation with OTHER COMMUNITIES (mostly @SteemitBloggers) would still be on the table.

I understand that discrediting "opponents" is part of the strategy (politics). and I can only hope that this statement will help to clear out our name, as it has been really seriously damaged by non-factual accusations as mentioned above.

My main goal of this post is to "clear the air" and avoid escalating of tension between our few communities.

SPECIAL THANKS

line2.png

I invested long hours within the past few days to support @SteemChurch, but I wasn't the only one who did so.

And today I would love to shout "BIG THX" to a few special people.

@juanmolina, @lanzjoseg - Many of you know those two already. Both are from Venezuela, with great heart and awesome knowledge about blockchain. If you're trying to get to know supportive and active Steemians then definetly you shold check out their profile.

@emiliocabrera, @sirknight, @uyobong - Those tree representatives of SteemChurch community proved to me, that we can still be "humans" even in a country with an economy as destroyed as the one in Venezuela. Loved their engagement and effort they invested. Especially Emilio - this is a kind of guy who has a real vision and determination to reach it.

@danielwrites, @neavvy, @flash07, @thetimetravelerz, @intellihandling, @edgarare1, @andyjem - I seriously wouldn't make it all happen without your constant support guys. It's so hard to express my gratitude for all you did to support this initiative.

Please accept my apology if I had failed to mention anyone else, as those were really few long days and my brain is half-dead already.

Resteemed Piotr.

Mate, you are a genuine character with a zest for life.

Have absolutely loved what you have done to bring this competition to life. And whilst it appears I have a little mopping up to do ;) meeting you and your friends was well worth it.

Don't let the haters get you down. They seem to be everywhere these days, making up their rules as they go along. Rise above it mate and keep pushing the forward.

I know that you are going places Poitr. Well... Europe apparently (lucky for some). Safe travels!

SK.

I only heard about this controversy yesterday when someone posted about it, but I am always skeptical about accusations until I examine the facts. I know you @crypto.piotr have been sending messages to people with small transfers to promote posts you like for a long time. I've received them myself. I think most people consider it spam. Unlike most of these messages I've received, they weren't promoting a bot but actual real people's posts. Whether you had some sort of financial arrangement with those people is not clear, but I have clicked on a few of them and read them though it is not my general practice.

I do have a question for you, though. What exactly does this statement mean?

As a matter of fact, if somehow SteemChurch would win, then my suggestion of sharing part of 20k SP delegation with them would still be on the table.

This sounds like you did arrange to share the delegation with @steemchurch, but what exactly were the terms? Was this in exchange for spamming people's wallets with messages to read posts that encouraged upvotes? If not, then what exactly was the arrangement?

Dear @blockurator

Thank you for your kind comment. Indeed sending mass memo's is being perceived by some people as spam. I noticed it. Somehow we all accept bots spamming our wallets, but we hate when humans do that. I could never understand that fully.

Whether you had some sort of financial arrangement with those people is not clear, but I have clicked on a few of them and read them though it is not my general practice.

I've lose you here.

I'm not sure who I could have financial arrangement with. I've been sending memos worth 0,003 steem. Which isn't really that much. Surely not enough to consider it a bribe :)

As a matter of fact, if somehow SteemChurch would win, then my suggestion of sharing part of 20k SP delegation with them would still be on the table.

I fixed this sentence already. You're right. It's not very clear what I was trying to say.

This sounds like you did arrange to share the delegation with @steemchurch, but what exactly were the terms?

The idea I had was quite straight forward: I wanted to build some trust between few community leaders. Including those managing @steemitbloggers. So I decided to help @SteemChurch and I got @help.venezuela on board. Plus since I realized how much pressure there is to win that 20k delegation I came with simple solution: if SteemChurch would win then decent part of that 20k SP delegation would be reditected to help few 2-3 communities (especially SteemitBloggers).

I figured that this would allow us to "bond" and hopefully would help to build a healthy relationship between us.

Was this in exchange for spamming people's wallets with messages to read posts that encouraged upvotes? If not, then what exactly was the arrangement?

Personally I wasn't supposed to receive anything for my support (not directly). That wasn't my goal.

I'm investing in people. I strongly believe that knowing valuable people within this industry is worth so much more than anything else. Once market will recover - it will allow to create business opportunities for myself and many of those who follow me. At least this is what I chosed to believe.

Please let me know if it does make any sense to you.

ps. I hope you're not upset about all those memos received from me.

Yours
Piotr

Somehow we all accept bots spamming our wallets, but we hate when humans do that.

Actually, I don't accept the bots. I don't like them at all. And I think you'll find most serious content creators will agree with me on this. They don't improve Steemit at all.

I'm not sure who I could have financial arrangement with. I've been sending memos worth 0,003 steem.

I've checked your transfers and delegations and see no evidence that anyone you have promoted this way has "paid you back." That was my concern. I wondered if you were receiving payment for your promotions. I don't know why anyone would create an expenditure to promote the content of others without some sort of personal gain from it. Unless I missed something, you seem to be doing just that. I haven't checked your upvotes, so maybe your arrangement is in upvotes that create author curation rewards. If it is, I'm not concerned. If it profits you and doesn't hurt anyone else, so be it. But why not be transparent about it?

Surely not enough to consider it a bribe

I hope you don't think I've accused you of bribery. Spending money to make money isn't a bribe. Bribery is a legal term that specifically means to offer money in exchange for influence that typically ought not be bought. For instance, offering a judge in a court of law to rule a certain way based on a promise of monetary gain. Or paying a police officer to not write you a speeding ticket. Or it could be paying an American Idol judge to choose you as the winner in a talent contest. On Steemit, offering upvotes, STEEM, SBD, or other crypto compensation in exchange for desired behavior (termed "incentivize") is actually a common practice. If doing it was a bribe, we'd all be guilty.

The idea I had was quite straight forward: I wanted to build some trust between few community leaders. Including those managing @steemitbloggers. So I decided to help @SteemChurch and I got @help.venezuela on board. Plus since I realized how much pressure there is to win that 20k delegation I came with simple solution: if SteemChurch would win then decent part of that 20k SP delegation would be reditected to help few 2-3 communities (especially SteemitBloggers).

Truthfully, this sounds fishy to me and could be why you're getting some push back on this. You can put me in the skeptical box.

I figured that this would allow us to "bond" and hopefully would help to build a healthy relationship between us.

Any time someone uses the concept of "bonding" in connection with competition, that sends up a red flag. For me it does, anyway. I think to any reasonable person, that would be a trigger moment. Really? What are you up to?

Please let me know if it does make any sense to you.

I've questioned your tactics sense the first time I received a transfer from you. In my opinion, it's not the best way to get people to read content or interact with it. It's spammy. As for the present shenanigans, it fits in line with your previous actions, which don't make sense to me.

ps. I hope you're not upset about all those memos received from me.

Nope, not upset. I just ignore them.

I don't know why anyone would create an expenditure to promote the content of others without some sort of personal gain from it. Unless I missed something, you seem to be doing just that.

It really bothers me to see comments like this, on a level deeper than I can really express in words. The world is in a state of pain and suffering, on a grand scale, yet some still seem to be trapped in this mindset, that actions must always come with a selfish reward. I'm not saying you are, and I'm not attacking you. These are topics that people should be thinking about and discussing right now.

And yes, I read every word you wrote here, twice actually, but I don't really care to debate it, because I don't think my man here is trying to game or take advantage of anyone. Also, his memos that people view as spam, usually come with an indicator that he will stop the messages if requested by single users. I make it a point to read and interpret peoples words carefully, as well as account operations.

Have you ever heard of ALTRUISM?



If I've offended you, it wasn't my intent. I just feel we should start being less skeptical of one another, and think deeply, as well as discuss issues that need to be solved in the world. Sure, many have screwed up motives, but assumption based thinking that lacks any solid basis is not the solution, IMO.

·
·
·
·

Altruism is dead. I've never met anyone who claimed to be its proponent who actually lived it. @crypto.piotr, by his own admission, doesn't send these messages purely for altruistic motives.

I'm a business owner, plus I've few years experience as a professional social media marketer. Let's put it this way: I'm building my influence and reach. Influence = getting to know people. And knowing right people does allow me to make businesses with some of them.

That doesn't sound like altruism me. It's a business decision. Nothing wrong with that.

BTW, I've made no accusations. I have only asked questions.

·
·
·
·
·

Well, I'm not saying you are making accusations. You're taking what appears to be questionable evidence, and presenting it in an intelligible and respectful manner.

I don't agree that altruism is dead. I'm a man who's slept under bridges in the cold of winter, and have given my resources to others, when I was in need myself. I don't really care if you believe this or not honestly, because it's not my will to impose.

Altruism as a whole is lacking, but it's not dead IMO. It's a facet of human nature that will never die. It just needs a little rekindling at times. Thank you for your response sir, good day to you.

Dear @blockurator

Altruism is dead.

Is that your life experience? Im very sorry.

It's not a life experience. It's a living reality. Ever hear of MC Hammer? He made millions selling hip-hop albums and in five years went bankrupt. Why? He was altruistic. Gave people jobs who didn't work, paid their salaries. Went bankrupt.

Ever hear of earning your wages and making what you're worth? It's called making a living.

That's not to say there isn't a place for charity, benevolence, giving to your fellow man. But if you give more than you earn, you go bankrupt.

Here's my experience: Those who hold altruism up to be some kind of benevolent virtue to behold are either shysters or idiots. It's an unsustainable business model.

Dear @blockurator, @futuremind

It's an unsustainable business model.

I agree. We just need to know our limits.

Look. I turned 40 lately and I decided that I want to make small difference within life of few people. Since I've decent earnings and I live quite confortable life - I can afford to invest some time and energy to help several people here.

And most of those people are from Venezuela. I really don't see a way of me earning anything that would justify my efforts. But I know that I can change life of few of those people. I actually did help 2 get some part time jobs already and I'm still helping them learn more about social media.

Do I consider myself an altruist? Not really. But technically I do not gain anything except of feeling that I did something in my life more meaningful than making money.

But I also understand that I can only "give that much" without affecting my lifestyle and my budget.

And to be honest, I've met number of people who consider themself succesful and financially independent, who do spent some % of their time, energy and other resources on doing things for others. Some people do have this desire. I do.

Yours
piotr

Dear @futuremind

It seem that many people did shocked you lately :)

Cheers, Piotr

Sure @crypto.piotr, I'm not one hundred percent sure the implied meaning behind your expression, but I have an idea. Yes, I find many aspects of human psychology to be shocking, at least, the current state of affairs in relation to psychological states in general. I think cognitive dissonance is appropriate to coin here. If my meaning resonates, I am not sure. At times you are a man of little words, which I find to be a sign of great intelligence.

I'm working towards not being so bothered by what I see, because it's a nice way to backslide during the course of one's healing process.

Dear @crypto.piotr,

Thank you for dropping by...

I don't have to say much except to say that I totally understand your intention. It's your nature to be kindhearted...and I knew the feeling.

Dear @blockurator

Thank you for your kind and mature reply. I really appreciate your time and the fact that you're sharing your thoughts and opinion with me.

I wondered if you were receiving payment for your promotions.

Since I remember I've been promoting content (or people) created by those who don't usually have resources. And many of them are from 3rd world countries like Venezuela. Most of them simply wouldn't even have enough to pay me back for all those memos. I see it as my personal investment in building healthy connection between us.

After all, few $ wasted is really nothing comparing to over 30h that I've spent on Steemit during this campaign.

I don't know why anyone would create an expenditure to promote the content of others without some sort of personal gain from it.

Well. We think differently. I'm a business owner, plus I've few years experience as a professional social media marketer. Let's put it this way: I'm building my influence and reach. Influence = getting to know people. And knowing right people does allow me to make businesses with some of them.

For example: right now I'm being paid monthly for consultation to upcoming Swiss STO (security token offerings). That's just one of my profits. And I would not sign those few contracts if I would never get to know people in charge.

I haven't checked your upvotes, so maybe your arrangement is in upvotes that create author curation rewards.
But why not be transparent about it?

Ehm. Im a bit speachless here. I really thought that I'm very transparent. I invest money and time to build community of people sharing similar values and passion towards crypto and blockchain (mostly). And knowing some of those people already is allowing me to get some deals outside Steemit.

That is my business model. Hope I'm transparent enough :)

I hope you don't think I've accused you of bribery.

Of course not :)a

Or paying a police officer to not write you a speeding ticket

did you ever had a chance to do so? :)

Truthfully, this sounds fishy to me and could be why you're getting some push back on this. You can put me in the skeptical box.

Why? What is so fishy with convincing winner of main prize, to support also 2nd and 3rd competitor? Why to have entire cake for yourself? If our goal is to build strong communities then learning to share is a MUST. Wouldn't you agree ?

I may be wrong, but that's how I was raised.

I've questioned your tactics sense the first time I received a transfer from you. In my opinion, it's not the best way to get people to read content or interact with it. It's spammy.

If you don't want to receive any more memos from me, then please let me know and I will respect that and obviously I will stop right away.

Yours
Piotr

Okay. Cool.

Well. We think differently. I'm a business owner, plus I've few years experience as a professional social media marketer. Let's put it this way: I'm building my influence and reach. Influence = getting to know people. And knowing right people does allow me to make businesses with some of them.

Okay. It's a new business model for me. Not something I'd have thought about, but I'm a social caterpillar so my judgement on those things isn't the best. I hope it works for you. Seems like it does.

And I would not sign those few contracts if I would never get to know people in charge.

Makes sense.

Ehm. Im a bit speachless here. I really thought that I'm very transparent. I invest money and time to build community of people sharing similar values and passion towards crypto and blockchain (mostly). And knowing some of those people already is allowing me to get some deals outside Steemit.

Awesome. It's not the kind of deal making I'm accustomed to, so that never crossed my mind.

did you ever had a chance to do so? :)

Ha! By "chance" I guess you mean, have I ever been pulled over speeding? Of course. Have I ever attempted to bribe an officer out of giving me a ticket? No. I have scruples.

Why? What is so fishy with convincing winner of main prize, to support also 2nd and 3rd competitor? Why to have entire cake for yourself? If our goal is to build strong communities then learning to share is a MUST. Wouldn't you agree ?

Americans think differently. I'm not saying you're wrong. But we think of a competition as containing a winner and a loser. While my libertarian ethos says you have the right to think differently, and even act differently, it's not the cultural norm where I'm from. So, it sounds fishy when I hear people talking like that. Where you're from, I guess it could be the norm. I have no idea.

If you don't want to receive any more memos from me, then please let me know and I will respect that and obviously I will stop right away.

I really don't care if you send them or not. I usually don't read them. I've been on Twitter for years and never read my DMs. Why? More than 9 out of 10 are spammy come ons. I quit reading them. Unsolicited mail of any kind goes in the garbage. Snail mail, email, wallet mail, you name it. File 13.

Dear @blockurator

Thank you again for your reply. I'm very grateful for all your feedback. For me being present on Steemit it's also a learning process and I always like to know how other people think and see things.

Americans think differently. I'm not saying you're wrong. But we think of a competition as containing a winner and a loser.

I believe there are always some exceptions. But perhaps my mindset is so very different because I've been forigner in a forign land for very long and I've learned that nothing matters as much as building strong friendships and local connections. And the best way to do it is by being genuine and making firstr step by helping people without any expectations.

I've heard that Chinese saying once: alone you go fast, together you go long.

And it does work for me so far :)

Again i appreciate that you shared with me your point of view in very respectful manners.

Truly Yours,
Piotr

I thought about the "hear say" and the "accusations" that have been allegedly thrown around and from what I see in your post obviously the case, not just a case of "hear say" and the following is what I concluded:

It all comes down to a "football supporter" type of mentality.

Why do I say this, well, just like in football, we all support a team and when it comes to some international match then we all unite and support the/our national team.

Well, I saw the united front when we Steemians were voting on a poll put out by Netcoins.

The entire blockchain was spammed with posts, comments, wallet messages and likewise all the other social medias were bombarded too.

Yet now when it is an internal match being played, then it all comes down to a "supporter" or even a "hooligan" mentality at times.

So, don't feel bad about it all.

Not worth losing your time or patience with any of it, as I keep saying:

"Technology changes, human nature doesn't".

Life is what it is and people will be people, no matter what one does it all comes down to "yesterday is in the past and it is what a person does today that matters".

Cheers, wish you a safe trip to Europe.

Gods speed.

I can summarize this last week as "a great adventure".

It was hours of hard work trying to motivate the Steemians to support @steemchurch in the dpoll.

Today when there are only a few hours left to close the voting process, we are 29 points behind the first place.

Unless the audit favors us, unfortunately we will not achieve the delegation.

All the experiences of life leave you a teaching. You will always have a personal and spiritual growth.
This is how this experience was for me. Edifying in a lot.

I met valuable people. That is priceless.

It also served as a reflection. Since I could see the embarrassing side of the people inside steemit. Dishonest behaviors only moved by a greed without limits.

The lack of scruples of some, caused that for the first time in almost a year working on this platform, I received not one, but three red flags by some individuals that I prefer not to name.

Greetings to the community of @steemchurch. I appreciate them very much. We will continue working in the future if God allows it.

Your friend; Juan.

Friend @juanmolina

Only from there learning is the most important, the other is only added to different people and their ways of acting.

Así que, pa lante es paya

Friend @crypto.piotr

As we say in Venezuela: "to foolish words deaf ears." You know you have a lot of followers because you prove to be a real and sincere person, and as long as we all know the quality of a good person you are, we know that you are not able to pay anyone, to vote for some community.
Do not feel bad for those badly intensified words with nothing you can prove.
Also many of what we believe in you and you asked us to support that community, just by going to see the @SteemChurch blog, we realize the painstaking work they do both in steemit and outside of steemit.
I bet you that no other community that was participating in any of them take days to help the neighbor outside steemit, much less feed the needy.
That help does @SteemChurch with a lot of people who come off their stuff to help out steemit.
I live in Barcelona, ​​Anzoategui State Venezuela, I can attest that delivery of food as well as others to hospitals, you know I made my inquiries to verify that.

Friend keep doing your great job of growing friends here at steemit.

You are still counting on my support and with the support of many.

Friend and from now on I tell you that we are going to miss you the time that you are without connecting or making any publication.
I wish you all the best for you and your family includes the little "Happy"

I think that what some people do not understand is when you send request through the wallet about things you are passionate about or want help or comments or feedback on. It is something you have been doing for a long time, and you always offer to stop sending them, (at least I have seen that in a few you sent me), so they could be confused about and or misunderstanding one of your prefered methods used to communicate when it comes to things you are passionate about. Nothing at all wrong with that, and if anyone thinks a $0.001 wallet heads up to something you are passionate about is vote buying, well they certainly do not place much value on their vote.

Hi @bashadow

I think that what some people do not understand is when you send request through the wallet about things you are passionate about or want help or comments or feedback on.

Indeed. Lack of understanding is usually the cause of most problems.

ps.
I only had a chance to read this comment a moment ago. Past several days has been very messy and I guess I missed your reply.

Please allow me to thank you for your constant support.

Truly yours, Piotr

I estimate Piotr, alias: @ crypto.piotr

Your publication is extraordinary and original, more than words, reflect your great heart. You are giving an example of values ​​to the Steem community that is indispensable to mention:

Altruism
Amiability
Personal disinterest
Excellent motivator
Charismatic
Humility
Integrity
Among many things

I also confess that I did not like the attacks against a community that only seeks to love people, be social, encourage others, as it is @steemchurch. Our most important values ​​do not have to do with demonstrating that we are better than others, but helping everyone to be better in love, faith, temperance, meekness and making many people happy.

As CEO of SteemChurch, we forgive those who offend us, and we invite you to get to know us better and work together.

Thank you @ crypto.piotr for joining us, for defending the integrity of this community and leave your commitment to the people you lead.

Good trip friend, how long is Asia if this great man?

I don't think you were buying people's votes... I didn't know about the contest at all, so when you told me about it, I tried checking it out... I read the vision and goals of Steemchurch, so I decided to vote for it... :) If I wasn't touched or interested, I wouldn't really vote even if you informed me through memo... I hope that even though you didn't win, a lot of Steemians would extend a helping hand.. I knew of some Venezuelan Steemia here who are great artists and share the same hobby with me. :) I wish you all the best. God bless... 😁

Hello @crypto.piotr
Just here to wish you a safe journey back to Europe.

Do keep in touch.

I think through this competition we learned a lot of things. I am pretty sure organiser @theycallmedan would have learned a thing or two to improve his future contests.

It was a fierce fight, but I was more like observing from the side lines.

As you have mentioned that Steemit is still a small community and lightly knitted and interwoven, and I felt sad that as I tend to agree; technology changes, human nature don't.

No doubt that during competitions due to the zeal of contestants some unprocessed thoughts would spill out from the mouth.

That's how evil hearts can be at time.

That's why in the bible it speaks of the flesh vs the spirit many times. @steemchurch would know that fairly well. You can always feel free to strike a conversation with the founder and even with me.
(unfortunately you are going to be too far for us to meet for a cup of coffee and tea with the Mrs)

But let's let bygones be bygones. There are always a better day. And we hope that with that being said, congratulations to @steemitbloggers, you got a good run for your money over this round of contest.

Let's look forward to collaboration and not create constant strive amongst human beings because one event. Life is too short for that.

Take care and bon voyage!

I would have spam even more wallet message, just to prove a point that this is how inconvenient steem block chain is without a messaging function. Those idiots shouting about simply because they're desperate. Don't forget, Dan use vote exchange for the people who retweet for the netcoin listing event. So what? Is there a law book saying you can't send wallet message to promote for a poll?

It's ugly, but u have my support. Sorry I did not use my main account to vote for Steemchurch, as I have promised @team-cn for @partiko earlier. I know they're not going to win anyway, but it's a gesture of support, just like how you have supported steemchurch.

This dpoll contest (and the last) brought out the worst of all teams of people I have ever seen in my life. If we never have another poll, I will be very happy. There is no way to win this thing without vote begging against steem terms of service and boy did we every get that.

At least people showed their true colors and speaking as an accountant I will never forget this valuable information.

Dear @fitinfun

Indeed we're moving to europe. Malaysian immigration and their goverment pro-muslim policies are the reason why thousands of expats moved out from Malaysia lately. I found it to troublesome to live there at the moment. I hope you will be well in KL.

This dpoll contest (and the last) brought out the worst of all teams of people I have ever seen in my life.

I hope I didn't make bad impression on you. I treated this contest as a opportunity to build healthy connection with few other leaders. I tried to reach out to few such a leaders in the past but I was always flushed away. So right now I figured that supporting other community could help me achieve that. And it really did. I was treated very fairly by both founder and CEO of @SteemChurch. I felt like we're equal.

It's pretty obvious that I invested in Steemit tons of hours and I would not like it to fail. We've loads of IT savy guys doing great jobs. But community leaders simply do not seem to be willing to work together. Most of them think of their "followers" as their "property". I'm very passionate to change that, as I believe that the real strenght will come from working united together.

Of course Im fully aware, that amount of spam we all produced has been awful. I can only hope that I didn't give you or anyone else other reasons to doubt in me.

If we never have another poll, I will be very happy

I surely will not attend any more for very long time either.

Yours
Piotr

I feel like these polls did a service. I learned a lot by them. I am sure you did as well. As long as I have been here we have had these "communities" that are nothing more than ways to get self-votes. And now some are stronger. Oh well. I did not join in the past and will sure not be joining now. I will just keep doing what I am doing and hopefully succeed. So far, so good.

I love it here in kl and hope to be able to stay a long time, but I will love the next country too so I am not worried about it. I will leave next at the end of April and hope for a smooth return back in. I haven't had any warnings, so I am good at least until August. After that, we will see.

I'm pretty lost too man, by everything I'm witnessing here.

What really has me lost about this particular comment, is the fact that someone would willingly spend copious amounts of time, in a (virtual) world, where they cannot trust others, or at the very least, give benefit of doubt to the fact that we are real humans, engaging with each other with a tool.

I'm really confused by this logic, and maybe I've been up too many hours reading comments here, idk... But I would not spend time in a world where I couldn't trust anyone..

This is only my opinion here, but I think a complete lack of ability to give people the benefit of the doubt, speaks volumes on a persons character. What does it indicate? Not sure, but every "partner" I've ever had who couldn't trust me, ended up being a cheater 🤔

I certainly would not want to have interactions with someone, only to find out, they never trusted me the entire time. I would rather they tell me upfront and get it out of the way, or maybe, just not interact with me at all.

Spending time in a world where you can trust no one.... damn..

Not sure, but every "partner" I've ever had who couldn't trust me, ended up being a cheater

It's funny that you said that, but I just spoke with my own life partner about this issue few days ago. Basically we talked a lot about trust in general. Especially online.

I certainly would not want to have interactions with someone, only to find out, they never trusted me the entire time.

Spending time in a world where you can trust no one....

This is the only world I've got, as far as I know, and I have fought to live it in my whole life. I'm old now and I'm an accountant and auditor, and have seen many times that it is the "trusted person" no one would ever suspect who is the one stealing the money.

Particularly in steem - where a vast majority of people are anonymous, you would be wise to be cautious with your trust.

Thank you @fitinfun, I respect the wisdom of my elders very much. I'm pretty open with my personal struggles and fight throughout life, and am now a hermit (in the physical word) searching for healing and wisdom. I do, very much so, try to give people the benefit of the doubt.

I enjoy studying psychology and personalities, so I kindly thank you for this analysis you've presented here. I have an insatiable appetite for knowledge and wisdom.

I found this to be a very intelligent breakdown on your theory of people. I hope I didn't strike you as an asshole. I certainly have the propensity to be one at times, perhaps because I am passionate ego driven at times maybe with my beliefs.

I think I can learn a great deal from you. Thank you @fitinfun

Seriously @futuremind your comments are blowing my mind. We're so very like-minded.

I enjoy studying psychology and personalities,

I LOVE learning about people. For that reason I was backpacking through middle east, russia, china. I've been in so many places all over the world. Learning how people think and how they differently react in similar situations is mindblowing.

Really loved your little chat with "hermit" @fitinfun :)

I kind of do understand your reasons, but ...

Particularly in steem - where a vast majority of people are anonymous, you would be wise to be cautious with your trust.

I don't want to share link to this tool on Steemit, as I'm afraid that I may be accused of promoting mass memos.

But privatelly I will be happy to share that link.

Yours
Piotr

Dear @danielfs

Thank you. Do you know spanish? :)

What a silly question ... I forgot that you're from Colombia

jaja, don't worry

Man, I salute your undaunted spirit of sportsmanship and drive for building a team. The future has great stuffs. I see freedom ahead. We need not pay attention to those who take things so personal. #steem is full fun and we do not have to miss it!

A great joy to read this post, to know that a good collective call work was done, I can say with responsibility, that nobody paid me to vote for the friends of @SteemChurch,
what motivated me to choose them, was the proposal that convinced me, this process was very transparent and a great greeting to the elect, let's work together for the welfare of our community, success.

Dear @betzaelcorvo

I'm sorry for such a late reply. I only had a chance to read your comment now (somehow i missed it).

Thx for being so responsive and supportive.

Of course winning or losing is important; especially as the ambition was not personal, but for helping many who are in desperate need.

However, if our 'group' do not stand firm against those who insidiously make accusations, with no offer to prove themselves, to give in to them is a betrayal of all those who stood by you and voted for @steemchurch.

I did not vote for @steemchurch - I voted for what they want to do.

Now, @crypto.piotr , it is your turn. Vote for all of us who believed and voted. If we have lost, let us do it with dignity and not like snivelling sjw's. We must immediately start our next drive. For instance, over 350 people voted, if each (who can afford it) delegate $10 or more, @steemchurch could come out a winner, with 3 to 4,000 delegated to them. That would not be such a bad defeat, and it also sends a strong message - no votes were bought, for all our voters gave. As for those who are too low on SP to delegate, all they need to do is wait for the day they can afford it, but in the meantime, upvote whenever they can.

If we will it, there can be no defeat, only different forms of success.

Safe flight bud. Don't feel bad for the accusations. We know you are cool and good so doesn't matter what some people speak in anger. You have tried your best to help the community. If you see many have still voted for you on the dpoll if they were transferred to steemchurch as we had allied things could have gone better.

We might not become the winner of dpoll but we already are winners at our hearts that is more than enough.

On the other hand, we now know how to win the votes in Steemit. I am happy to know that not only in my country there are dirty games, but there are also at all levels. I think it's human nature, regardless of race, religion, gender, and analog or digital platform.

It's unfortunate that all too often people tend to jump into conclusion on issues they know nothing about.

The Twitter lady thinks you sending thousandths of 1 Steem is a tip, she should think again.

I hold no grudge against her as she's clearly a Steemitbloggers sympathizer but she should have verified before making false comments.

The sad reality is that such attitudes are never going to go away, even the most noble acts will be slandered by some.

Dear friend, do not be discouraged, the effort you put in is essential in improving engagement.

I greatly appreciate it and I'm sure many others do also. Do have a safe trip.

Hi @crypto.piotr buddy is it possible if you can keep it for 1 more months as I very close to minnow mark and once I achieve that then even I will remind you to undelegate. I know am asking too much but I also know that you will consider my request. Thanks.

I think their slur campaign is a disgrace, made even worse by making 'suggestions' in their posts as opposed to laying down factual reason for complaint.
I would also point to their hypocrisy also...

Hi @crypto.piotr,
In such a contest that comes almost without rules, there is only our own moral compass left to decide what is ok and what is not. In a community that unites people from the whole world, it is not surprising that we have difficulties to agree on what can be considered to be acceptable and what is not...

If I remember well you won't be able to take your wife with you to Poland? I wish you both a lot of strength to overcome this separation. Have a safe journey my friend.

Best regards,
Achim

Buena lista agradecida

Thank you very much for adding me to your incredible presentation my great friend @crypto.piotr ...

It is a pleasure as always to read each of your posts related to helping people who need it ...

Now we know that we really have and there are many people in this great community that we form with people with enormous gratitude, people who share the same passion for helping others.

It is possible that all the efforts that were made and that made the other people to help this great community of @steemchurch .. Maybe they will not get the result we all wanted.

The most important thing is that now we will have a better relationship and we know that when we need help, we will know who we can trust.

As you mentioned @crypto.piotr the trust and respect is everything in this world, and that's where our principles and our small community are based ..

If there are communities that need our help, of course they can come to us at any time ... Our support is impartial ..

I do not even want to talk about the issue of accusations and vote buying because all of us involved know that such accusations are: FALSE.

We will always be available if you need help, @crypto.piotr @Emiliocabrera @help.venezuela @SteemChurch @juanmolina @lanzjoseg @sirknight @uyobong

I will always be available to you when you need it ...

Hello my friend,

Good luck on the travels! Are you moving back to Poland?

I feel sorry that you have to defend yourself and your work. People will always be skeptical and negative about people who try to help others. There is a lot of back and forth discussion and arguing here but I hope that we can put this behind us. It's a sad state of the contemporary human condition where greed and power is fought for tooth and nail. Instead of accepting others as just their peers and competitors in fairness. I wish we didn't have to suffer these things, but alas it will not go away when there are finances involved such as on here.

Keep your head up! There are so many that know and support you, you win over more each week but there will always people who will fight others.

This contest was definitely a great adventure. I had a chance to meet several amazing people with outstanding ideas, and obviously the whole @steemchurch community.

Those accusations are just awful. Steemitbloggers seem to be very frustrated after their first failure with Venezuelan @votovzla, so this time they decided to choose a tactic of publicly slamming our work, especially focusing on you. Well, this tactic is filthy for me, but it unfortunately works. After their accusations began, steemitblgger started to gaining an advantage in the dpool.

I must be really naive, as I believed that contests like this one should get people and community leaders together.

I believed that too. However, the reality is really sad.

Estimado @crypto.piotr. Tienes mi apoyo

My Dear Saviour Piotr Sir,

Somehow I missed out this blog post of yours, please pardon me, Sir.

I am not going to post a huge comment, but just a few words.....

This is my comment under SBI...


marvyinnovation (47) in steembasicincome • 2 days ago

I nominate @crypto.piotr Sir for his uncountable acts of kindness without which many planktons like myself would have been buried under the ground in the midway of our Steem journey!


You've rescued umpteen no. of planktons and minnows umpteen no. of times and this is known by umpteen no. of Steemians!

Sir, you need not have to speak even a single word in this regard. Because, as I said previously before, your uncountable acts of kindness will speak for yourself. Moreover the entire Steemian world knows very well about your Selfless endeavors!

What more can I say, Piotr Sir!
