Arggh matey! You're all making them walk the plank. This is beautiful clean up work. Hard and dirty work but needed.

We need more witnesses like you.

Thanks for all you do for everyone. Thanks for the mention.
As you well know fighting abuse on steemit doesn't pay the bills. But the problems just seem to grow daily.
Hopefully come September 26 some of these problems will go away.

I am glad we have a few witness on steemit that care about content quality and walk the high road.

I can not begin to express my gratitude for our friendship. All those that take the time, realize that your a great person.


Thanks mate. Same to you.

Kinda figured it would go in that direction eventually so I'm honestly not surprised considering the kind of person actually behind it.

@themarkymark spam


That's how @themarkymark deceives us

The only reason for this spam is to promote his bid-bot @buildawhale. He just could refund the payment from users on his blacklist and give the reason. – This is already standard on other bid-bots.


Haha, he has started to spam me twice on every post, no matter what content (mostly bitcoin analysis and geopolitics) wonder when I will start see him posting 10 of these spam posts like with you

and here I was thinking they'd forgotten about me.

Thank you so much for your hard work @themarkymark, it's reassuring knowing yourself and everyone else who's been tackling this issue is on the case.

At this point, so many months in, with their own money used to pay people to set these accounts up, the countless hours spent flagging... I'm left thinking that this is clearly a very lonely, miserable person. I can't even imagine what it must be like inside their head.


Or just someone who feels like trolling. Either is getting a bit ridiculous. lol

The sheer amount of time spent is baffling.


Anyone who wants to try and troll that hard clearly has some damage already. A happy person wouldn't feel the need.

i cant wait till the faucet closes... we are so close..

Did you saw my comment on your other post about some other guys flagging around.


I shared it with the German abuse fighting community. They have been aware of these accounts for a few months. I am sure the good German folks on steemit will sweep up this mess.


Yes, looking into it. But people are free to flag as they choose, same with upvoting. While I am not happy to see Nazi things here, that starts getting into censorship and not antispam. But I will look further into when I have a moment, I looked real quickly earlier.


Ok thank you

Thanks for the heads up!

Very impressive!

Do some app owners sometimes blacklist users from using their services, to help prevent abuse?


I think some do, but not on a large scale. Mostly just one off users they happen to run across.

This person either has too much time on their hands or they have a mental disorder. Probably both. Talk about pissing in the wind....


The funny thing is it's all useless. The flags are meaningless, they are usually even on posts that aren't even flaggable. It just creates a lot of confusion and causes people to waste time.


To them it's not useless. It the best trying to outdo the best, it's a game, cat and mouse. Everyone upping their game to catch the other. Some of the names on the list should tell you that. Probably sitting back as we speak trying to figure out the next step up in the game of computer-marksmanship, I don't think it's about the money for them.


It’s not. He is having a temper tantrum because his spam got flagged.

They all just followed me. Thank you for this post. Now I know what's happening. Thank God none of those accounts have any steem power.
