This is my weekly report of my private initiative against semi-professional Steemit copycats.
Here’s a summary of the plagiarized posts I’ve found and the users currently on my public blacklist:

First of all, thank you, again, to everyone who has been generously supporting my flagging actions against Steemit abusers!
This week was dominated by the fight against a single abusive user, fatima1212, mass-plagiarist and comment spammer. Thanks to the support from other abuse fighters, we were able to retaliate his actions, for now. However, this user is justone tip of an iceberg of a whole network of Steemit plagiarists and abusers, as is documented by mutual comments and upvotes within this network. I will check, and, if necessary, report and flag all of them, one by one, over the coming days and weeks.
This initiative is targeted against networks of semi-professional Steemit copycats who do not contribute their own work, but copy the existing work of others with the sole intention that, by publishing it here on Steemit, they make profits with it, with minimal investment in time and resources of their own.
Copy/pasting content on Steemit is harmful. It unfairly disadvantages original content creators for reward payouts, contributes to Steem currency devaluation by reward inflation, damages the public image of the platform, and diminishes the visibility of all of its content in search engines.
