Say WHAT... You Flagged Me Over My Opinion?! ๐Ÿ˜ญ

11 days ago

Hey fellow Whaliens!

It recently came to my attention that some on the platform may see it fit to flag others (as in, remove rewards) simply for sharing their opinions or interests, or possibly cuz they didn't like the color of the person's shirt in their profile pic. If you really don't care for someone, feel free to simply "MUTE" them. There's no need to get into a flag war over it.


source

Those who feel the need to flag another Whalien should also make it clear in the comments why they are doing so, lest you come off as being just another insufferable Whalehole! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Two big differences on Whaleshares versus STEEM is that:

  • there are no "monstro-megawhales" on Whaleshares
  • it costs 3x more in order to flag another user

Currently, the largest "whales" you might encounter on Whaleshares may hold at most a few percent of the current 26 million supply of WLS. This is another reason it will be much more difficult for any one person to censor others, or to control who is considered "worthy" of receiving rewards from the reward-pool.

On Whaleshares, everyone's more or less starting out on equal footing, and will have a chance to be rewarded as such. It's also much less likely that a single interest will be able to accumulate such a large STAKE in the platform, as to be able to single-handedly bully other users around.

Well, certainly not without some sort of repercussion attached...

And what might those repercussions be, you ask?!


source

Oh no, reprecussions?! Say it ain't so...! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

For those thinking the answer is to start a flag war... NO, IT IS NOT.

Before I go on here, I do want to first clarify what is "flag-worthy".

On Whaleshares, all users are welcome to civilly and respectfully express themselves.

Self-Expression does not include the right to slander others without proof or substantiation, just as it does not include "the right" to plagiarize the work of others. If you're out to scam people, or spreading FUD and misinformation (on your posts or others), and are flagging to try and "cover your tracks", well... you won't receive much sympathy from anyone in the community over that either.

It also doesn't include "the right" to comment-spam or tag-spam other people's posts with the same irrelevant promotional messages over and over again. Most on the platform will simply tune them out anyway (or mute them), and most certainly NOT reward them. If you really want to get someone's attention, have the courtesy to add a thoughtful and relevant comment to their post.

You might find yourself shocked by the positive attention and appreciation that a high-quality comment can often attract.

That said...


source

Meh, I'm gonna flag your ass anyway... what ya gonna do about it?!

That's just fine then... you go right ahead with your malicious flagging. And here's what I suggest...

Most cases turn out to be simple misunderstandings, which can often be worked out by the parties involved. For example, even if you're called out for plagiarism, and you own up to your mistakes and address the problem in an honorable fashion, very often you will find those flags removed.

If you are a victim of an unwarranted flag attack, stop by the Whaleshares Official Discord and share your story. If it's clear to the community that you were wrongfully flagged, without any valid substantiation from the one flagging you, here is what I envision unfolding:

  • the community will not look kindly on this bully's actions, and their future rewards will likely suffer for it
  • as the "underdog", your visibility in the community will actually increase, especially if you truly have been targeted for something completely inappropriate and unwarranted
  • the community joins together to reward you with at least 3 times the value that was flagged from your post

So, if anyone in the community chooses to wrongly target you for a flag-attack, all they are actually doing is inviting the exact opposite... a chance for you to receive a big fat counter-reward!


source

As I am able, this is how I plan to handle such cases as they present themselves. And, as I do see this more of a potential "community effort", I also welcome others in the community to consider taking a similar stance in order to deter and deflect any unwarranted malicious flagging activity that may arise.

As always, I appreciate your upshare, your follow and all your comments!

Had not noticed any Whaleholes (LOL) so far. Really like the Whaleshares platform, it seems so much more mellow than some others out there.

Freedom of expression does not mean: 'anything goes', as far as I know. That would just mean chaos. Also there is freedom of response, not always quite well understood as such.

Think the way Whaleshares is set up is refreshing. Will be around here a little longer.

ยท

speaking of Whaleholes, just wanted to add this little bit of "drama" for everyone to see, as the STEEM version of @samstonehill's recent post, "100 followers today ๐ŸŽ‰ A whaleshares/steem comparison โ˜ฏ", was flagged to oblivion by none other than berniesanders for pretty much every reason described in this post.

Ironically, this exact behavior is a large part of why Whaleshares exists in the first place! (ironic lol)

Freedom of speech is also me having the ability to flag this post, which I will do shortly.

berniesanders also appears "blissfully oblivious" to the difference between exerting his own "freedom of speech", versus his ability to unilaterally exert his own power over others to completely shut down anyone he disagrees with.

However, given the real Bernie Sanders is a die-hard socialist / communist who owns THREE HOMES, whose wife bankrupted a university in Vermont...

Well, I suppose it does make sense that berniesanders would also support a government entity exerting its own power "freedom of speech" to shut down another person's voice.

Until, of course, it ever happens to him... ๐Ÿ˜ฑ ๐Ÿ˜ญ

ยท

hihihi whaleholes, it tickles me, it must be pretty big assho... :-)

ยท
ยท
ยท

Arrogant and excessive talk makes the community chaotic.

ยท
ยท

That kind of behaviour sure would downgrade the positive appearance of any platform.

And out off chaos a new order will arise, which might not be of a kind we appreciate.

Therefore it might be a good idea to stay away from mistaking freedom of expression for 'no-rules' or 'anything-goes'.

On the whole, I'd have to say what I've seen of Whaleshares so far seems pretty peaceful and mellow... I think I've come across exactly one skirmish-like exchange in a week of poking around here.

In general, I have always gone by the usually unwritten but broadly accepted old style BBS rules: "Don't feed the trolls, it's the only way they can grow."

If someone wants to go on a flame tirade, I usually just let it hang there. What's the sound of one hand clapping can be extended to pose the question "What's the sound of one person having a fight?" Generally not much...

ยท

Some very down-to-earth wisdom @denmarkguy.

Giving attention to what is preferred will make it grow.

ยท

Boy, that's really aging us, isn't it?! I used to run one myself back in the day... first started on FidoNet, then migrated over to PCBoard! ๐Ÿ˜ lol

ยท

Sometimes I listen to 'baud' modem audio recordings and remember how long it took for the 'flight-simulator' to load from tape into my Timex 1000, a SinclairZX81 clone, 16 KBs of RAM. Just to watch huge b/w blocks move over the TV screen. Having the 'flight' experience.

{Grumpy-mode-on}

Never could get used to them almost real looking 3D games of these days. Somehow it just looks unreal.

yeah, and now you hear things like... is 64GB enough? maybe we need 128GB, and 50mb/sec is just too slow, I need gigabit!

My first monitor was a bulky monochrome paper-weight, first hard drive was a whopping 64MB Priam, and my first modem was a $500 the Prometheus Pro-Modem 1200... These days, most tech looks pretty much like magic to me! ๐Ÿ˜‚ lol

It is just amazing to witness all this happening, over such a relative short time-span.

Wonder if 2020 will give us 256GB RAM by default, a 64 Core CPU, with 4 TB Ultra SSD and a 8K OLED screen. All connected to the internet through a glass fiber 1 Gb connection.

ACK!

When I was in college I was a SYSOP for a group run through one of University of Texas' mainframes... I would get on my "Trash-80" from Radio Shack (remember those?) with my 64K of RAM and dial up the UT system with my old fashioned phone cradle modem at 1200 baud... and that shit would crap out all the time because we were in an older part of town with shit phonelines full of crackle and noise. Download a batch of straight text messages to read and CURSE the heck out of anyone who was wasting space by creating elaborate ASCII art!!

Even then, there were trolls.

::: TEXT REMOVED BY SYSOP :::

And here we are... 35 years later... still dealing with latter day flame wars and trolls.

ยท
ยท
ยท

not to mention, remember those 8" floppies, a "huge" step up from loading your programs off a tape recorder?! 'nuff said... ๐Ÿ˜„ lol

some really great points here, I have never been a big flagger, I just used the mute button as you suggested. People should feel free to express themselves I agree, and it's true what you say about the underdog getting some major attention when attacked by a bully. I love that about decentralized blockchains, there is more freedom to be an A-hole but at the same time people are prone to standing up for each other too. Very well written post with some great things mentions. Really appreciate that!

ยท

Flagging should be avoided at all cost.I am an anti-flag person too.We shouldn't flag others just because wed on't like their post.That's totally wrong and unfair attitude.

Theres a mute button? I need this xD Is it for all posts or just one in particular? Good message Alex.

ยท

there sure is a mute button....i really thought this message was right on point.

Some bad habits need to be unlearned. It is sad to see old dramas carried over from a previous platform. We are way too new of a community to have such problems of our own so far. I truly hope that people move more towards the sharing mentality. We have all been given the chance to experience this platform from the ground floor. We all have the chance to make this place shine as we all wished our previous hangout still did before it was filled with "whaleholes"

Best if we all learn from past mistakes and grow together as a true community.

Big P Morris, I been bad lol! Joking, for real though, been back to blogging about a week now and really slapped myself reading Sammo's post. Subsequently have started my intro here and will be back at it tomorrow. Push the button!

ยท

come back to Whaleshares, we've been expecting you, and your lovely wife and family too... ๐Ÿ˜ lol

ยท
ยท

Hahaha here I'm here.. and she'll be following on soon. I have to revise how to use them tokens to sign ppl up as I've some others to board too. It's something like sending them through bitshares so they can sign up right?

Anyway I can't get past the loading page tonight, it seems there's some latency issues? I'll be back to blog and research tomorrow though. Big love and I mentioned you in my post man! ๐Ÿ‘

It recently came to my attention

Oh, do tell.... whether publicly, or privately, I want to know the specifics please. :)

ยท

I do as well, and I'm glad I'm not alone with this....

IMG_0432.GIF

Glad to see this, having had a couple of posts flagged on Steemit for the most dubious of reasons, by people on some kind of power trip.
ยท

this is also happening here, ego maniacs on a power trip are also flagging on whaleshares

If you take others work would be the only reason I would flag though I did flag someone else because they were scheming the community somehow but I didnโ€™t know flagging cost so much

I like sharks though.

Thanks for sharing. I felt a recent shock in the growing concern over free speech. Got a bit complacent and relaxed in what twitter and facebook brought to the world. Not something I want to go back to .. something to move forward and build well upon.

Great article - hope this stops the unwarranted bullies on the platform - also thank you for supporting my posts - this is much appreciated

ยท

and thank you @pandamama for the kind words... :) I dunno if it'll stop 'em, but perhaps it will give them pause, as they watch others rewarded for thoughtful community engagement and constructive discourse... lol

ยท
ยท

-- we can only hope for "thoughtful community engagement and constructive discourse" well spoken

All are equal, but on your post 3000WLS, and on my 10WLS :D
Its just joke dont flag me :D

ยท

well, everyone's gotta start somewhere! check out what my first six months on STEEMIT looked like... ๐Ÿ˜ lol

Fully agree, I don't really see why anyone would be so eager to use the flag button if something is not plagiarized or threatening physical violence or something like that. There are some opinions that really trouble me but flagging them will only add fuel to the fire, better to just use that upvote to put energy into more positive things.

ยท

"flagging them will only add fuel to the fire" <-- generally very true, it does tend to escalate the situation as well. best to just say your piece, see if there's any room for a constructive discourse, and if not, just move on... lol

I didn't even know there was a flagging button on here. I never used the flagging feature on any post on Steemit, though I have flagged a couple of comments on my own posts that were clearly spam (so as to discourage the spammer from coming back to my posts).

But one aspect of flagging that you didn't cover in this post that I think bears mentioning is the use of flagging to reduce rewards for a post you think has been over-rewarded.

Again, I've never used such flagging myself, because I just didn't want to get into the negativity. My nature is also more toward uplifting and amplifying the wanted than defensive. But I do see the value of the idea. A community does need some defenders, until we live in a world with only angels.

Some people are defenders by nature, and I think they flag to defend the rewards pool against people like haejin, who do nothing but use their personal wealth from real life to buy huge stake and then upvote their shitposts all day. They post many times a day and each time it not only adds no value to the platform, but in his case actually leads people astray. The greatest use he provided on steemit was giving another steemian fodder for a "haejin advice results" series that shows just how much money a person would lose actually doing anything with the random charts with a sentence of advice haejin posts.

And now I see this user is even on WLS, up to his old tricks again. Is it your belief that even if he drops a million bucks or so on WLS, he won't be able to succeed with reward pool rape on here the way he has on steemit? What will prevent it?

I think a part of self-governing community is that some governance involves defense against bad actors. We can't assume everyone has community intentions. Some people are truly anti-social, and if allowed to amass power, will use it to destroy the community to whatever extent they can. That's how it is IRL anyway, and I see no reason to expect them to be different in any social situation they are involved in.

So what checks the exploitative intent of a rich person?

ยท

But one aspect of flagging that you didn't cover in this post that I think bears mentioning is the use of flagging to reduce rewards for a post you think has been over-rewarded.

The problem with this approach is that it's very subjective. who is to determine what is a shitpost, or how much reward is "too much" for a particular person, or post, or anything really.

For example, recently @berniesanders on STEEM decided that he felt @samstonehill's "shitpost" (thebern's opinion, not mine) was completely worthless and downvoted it to oblivion. thebern's version of "freedom of speech" involves removing all rewards and hiding any post he disagrees with. Nearly everyone else commenting seemed to think the post was quite informative and well written. However, none of that matters, cuz no one is "powerful" enough to stand up to thebern on STEEMIT.

Link: Why should anyone have the power to reduce another person's pay-out?

@ultraviolet also wrote a great post on this topic, "Self upvoting", and I added a bit more in a comment as well.

The bigger issue is that if people start dictating to each other how their investments should be "managed", investors will inevitably "jump ship", deciding it's less hassle parking their capital into other crypto assets that pay dividends directly back without all the headaches.

So perhaps the real goal should be more focused on the advantages of a win-win "sharing" mindset, rather than trying to dictate to stakeholders how their investments should be "managed".

This is one of the most pressing issues facing us on the blockchain and must be completely understood moving forward.

After all, we have chosen to adopt a decentralised, uncensored platform, if that is not where your sensibilities lie, then maybe this is not the place for you.

Disagreeing with another's views is not a problematic thing, it is the gift given to us from having the benefit of a free mind, free-will and supposedly rational thought. To punish another for not having off-the-peg views that concur with yours entirely is lunacy and completely at odds with the zeitgeist of the blockchain movement.

Some of the greatest revelations in history would not have been reached without at-least 2 opposing viewpoints. debate is essential to any dialogue, theories can never be tested without converse views.

I am all for legitimate flagging especially when it comes complete with a comment explaining the issue, the best possible use I can think of is to highlight a scammer or serial plagiariser to others.

If you use a flag for hate speech, consider twice if it is exactly that! Hate speech I find is a pretty subjective term too nowadays. Twisted and turned by government and mainstream media manipulation.


While I am here, can I offer great thanks to you Alex, for introducing me to the single greatest comedian of our time...A man who made me laugh out loud with some of his awesome stand-up comedy routines, a man whose monologue I just listened to was made of pure comedy gold...I refer of course to the clown-master general himself...

Nouriel Roubini ๐Ÿ˜†

"For I am Nouriel Roubini, renowned expert of all things and I see no practical application for this new fangled scam known as gravity or this invisible new commodity that we may not even cast our expert eyes upon, oxygen"

The above quote, you may notice I paraphrased slightly...But I can amost hear him saying it with cast iron conviction which can only be garnered from being an expert on all!

I wholeheartedly love your writing style man...your posts may be of the little and often variety but I see that they are well worth waiting for.

Stay awesome Brother ๐Ÿ˜€

ยท

all good points, and very true @stevenwood. thanks also for all the kind words, and glad you garnered such comedic enjoyment from Roubini's "rants". Such are the "experts" these days... lol

I do hope to get more posts out as well, just been so busy with the whalehsares-related projects I've been working on... more on all that soon as well! ๐Ÿ˜

Just got my first downvote to my second post ever here because the person didn't get me, thought that I was moaning and thought that I had a bad day. So he / she downvoted me. Didin't even consider that I would try to be funny in my writings.

What a lovely way to say hello to a new Whalerian... Whalesharesian... oh WhaleShares person in to the community. Nothing says welcome more than a downvote!

Hmm... funny how Steemit has been much more friendlier to me right at the start than WhaleShares.

What WhaleShares has taught me?
If you think that someone is having a bad day, flag them!

ยท

If you think that someone is having a bad day, flag them!

maybe we should update that to, if someone flags you for having a bad day, look how many stop by to show you a bit of "love"... ๐Ÿ˜„

Great article and I agree with everything you say for the full one hundred percent. As a newbie to the platform I will do my best to adhere to your advice. I was actually expecting the content of the article to be somewhat different when I read the title, expecting it to be an article about how you personally became the victim of being flagged for expressing your opinion freely here on Whaleshares so that may have been somewhat misleading. Then again, the title lured me in to reading your article (that and the fact that it was on top of the Trending page ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) so I guess the goal justifies the means in this case. Thank you for educating me!

I wonder who would be going through the entire posts in the platform looking for a bad post/comment to flag in the name of trying to improve the platform. They usually do not know how to rate contents, they just mark bad an idea they do not agree with. If everybody should be flagging posts they dont like, i dont think it will make this platform the place where one can connect, chat, be free, have fun and still earn. I one does not like a post, he should simply ignore, and if you dont like to be seeing someone's posts, simply just use the mute button.

Are you saying this is not reddit where you downvote just because you don't agree??? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Sorry for the lighthearted joke but yeah that is crazy I didn't know that was going on thanks for shedding some light on the topic, I rarely use my downvote but sometimes there is a need to. I've always avoided the flag war drama and do believe that everything can be resolved with civility as you mentioned. Thanks for the post!

ยท

well, I dunno though, cuz that pumpkin pie's makin' me want to create a whole bunch of drama, as in stuffin' my face, and piggin' out on a bunch of whipcream! ๐Ÿ˜ lol

Gladly, to know that we need more "energy" when do flag activity.
I am not anti flag, either non-flag. It is similar when we use our anger to punish other person, that anger action will take more energy to do.
There is a spiritual pain in angry activity, so that's similar with flag activity. We should be "punished" with more energy when to do that so that is for avoid flag war and flag abusive activity. Actually I wonder if there's Love War activity.... ha..ha..!

ยท

very true as well @happyphoenix, it takes a load of energy to be "angry" at someone, and to deal with all the "drama" as well. That's why I tend to try and look at things from an ironic and humorous perspective and "point of view"! ๐Ÿ˜ lol

I wrote an article once that decentralisation is only as decentralised as the people that use it!!! i must share it on here

ยท

It allows peopleโ€™s offerings and knowledge to be valued and exchanged in a pure way rather than them having to fit their talents into a box to create something that conforms to more perfunctory requirements.

read your article too, especially great point, and all quite true... It's rather amazing how people's talents and abilities start shining through as you remove all the "middle-men", and offer them the opportunity to "spread their wings" in an comfortable and appreciative environment.

Beautiful kitty you have there too, btw! ๐Ÿ˜Š

... though we should probably keep her away from the little fishy! ๐Ÿ˜„ lol

I hope you told that Whalehole to stick it up his Blowhole!

I only just read this @alexmorris ~ Please don't let WhaleShares go the same way as Steemit! Everyone suffers in the end with crazy flagging and pointless arguments ~ Don't let this happen here, use your power to STOP this from happening, this platform is so uniquely different to others!

Fight on Alex, as you seem to be doing ~ This platform needs some protection from jealous people who only wish to harm us here!

Hi, @alexpmorris,

It's good to learn more about how this platform is structured differently to prevent flagging abuse.

I've never been either a giver or recipient in a flag war, but I've observed flagging on Steemit that has concerned and distressed me. It is also encouraging to think that victims of any possible flagging abuse here will be able to find help from the community.

๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜„

@creatr

I can't believe people are really doing that. I mean come on people, really? But then again I have gotten all kinds of rude, mean, lame, childish, comments on my YouTube channel, so I guess it makes sense, it would happen here as well. Grow up people!

ยท

yeah, watch out for those 12 year olds run a muck! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ lol

I am quite new here and am so glad to see that the flag wars that have plagued steem are not appreciated here. I have only flagged once or twice on steem and it was for flagrant abuse. I'm so excited to see how this place develops without Whale ruling the roost.

Hello, @alexpmorris!
I still do not really understand this, but I agree with you. As a warning, you can first leave a comment on what exactly does not like ...

I am new here, I hope no one flag me.

ยท

I am also new here, let me flag you :D

well, i have been flagged for having an opinion, and it is on this thread https://whaleshares.io/beamafrica/@samest/lagos-meet-up-beam-met-whaleshares-smoke-steemit-awesome-moment#@cryptogrind/re-samest-lagos-meet-up-beam-met-whaleshares-smoke-steemit-awesome-moment-20181104t102613535z ..... the flagger @ceruleanblue is your "friend" , the flagged @cryptogrind , you hate ..... i canna wait to see what you have to say here (roll out the 2ble standards! ) lol :)

ยท

Perhaps Alex was coming to your defense with this post. Or at least pointing out that flagging isn't the right way to handle differences of opinion. The timeline fits, as this post was written some time after your comment was flagged on the other post.

ยท
ยท

I will leave this possibility open and "up in the air"... if only to allow @cryptogrind the opportunity to further contemplate both his actions and responses! ๐Ÿ˜ lol

ยท

On Whaleshares, all users are welcome to civilly and respectfully express themselves.

Self-Expression does not include the right to slander others without proof or substantiation, just as it does not include "the right" to plagiarize the work of others. If you're out to scam people, or spreading FUD and misinformation (on your posts or others), and are flagging to try and "cover your tracks", well... you won't receive much sympathy from anyone in the community over that either.

Well, I suppose this in fact applies to you in reverse. All I see is one flag, after you repeatedly attempt to poke and prod people for a response on posts that are not even your own. You do not engage in thoughtful discourse, yet all I see is extreme tolerance towards your antics.

However, your agenda of actively trying to piss people off by getting all "up in their business", saying whatever B.S. you can think of to "trigger" others, and causing trouble for the sake of it, for the primary purpose of crying and "playing the victim", is frankly quite clear and transparent.

This was the only flag I saw on that post (which also did not serve to remove any actual rewards), and I am 100% certain that you have no proof whatsoever in order to verify your flimsy assertion. 1) because "good looking" is technically subjective unto itself, so there cannot be proof, and 2) I absolutely know for a fact there are "good looking" people on this platform, in my own humble opinion... as such, there really is nothing else I nor anyone else need say to disprove your misguided contention.

ยท
ยท

lol .... i knew the standards would apply differently when it comes to Cryptogrind Vs your friend ;) ...... 1) the thread was not @ceruleanblue 's either, he is just a commentator too ............ 2) my opinions not being positive is your subjective view, and even if they are not, i distinct recall u saying in your piece that they should either be ignored or muted never flagged ........... u see, this is the thing with people you , you write all these "worthy" pieces expecting to be lauded and applauded but soon as it is tested a bit close to the bone the rules change immediately ...... u have written all this grand piece about fair play and free speech and what not, but soon as it is test??? ...... well, its samo same old isnt it, one rule, applied to 2 people, completely differently ...... what a hypocrite you are .... i have always said this about u ............. i find you quite laughable ..... lol .... hahaha .... hahaha .......... & by the way should i have been flagged also had i said what a good looking bunch they were? ...... because that would have been a subjective view too ..... lol ... hahaha .... what a clown!

ยท
ยท
ยท

if it were me, I wouldn't have even wasted 1% of one reward flagging you, which would serve only to reduce rewards I can bestow upon someone else I feel more deserving, so I'm not saying I necessarily agree with it either.

But perhaps we can both agree you do seem to have some mysterious "knack" for crawling under people's skin and cluttering up people's comment sections with a whole bunch of irrelevant rants and drivel... subjectively speaking, of course! ๐Ÿ˜‚ lol

ยท
ยท
ยท
ยท

we can agree that you are a hypocrite ...... your response to my question has made a complete mockery of your post ........ ..... the example i just posed you speaks to your post to the letter ...... but what did you do?? hide behind waffle ............ one rule for the great unwashed another rule for you and your friends huh? ........ what a hypocrite you are

ยท

ยท

oh, well, I'm sorry, was there an actual question in there? it was my idea they were all rhetorical! lol

ยท

it doesnt matter, it is there for others to read and make off what they will ... ...... and by the way, Bill and Ted references does not befit a man your age ..... dude, you are old, live with it

ยท
ยท
ยท
ยท
ยท
ยท
ยท

well there ya go, you see? I suppose there was something we could both agree upon after all! lol

thanks for sharing that with us. I have become quite disheartened with the flagwars because now one to be so careful about expressing one's views on certain issues. Glad to see it will be different here @alexpmorris.

Yes, I see a few members of the community are very exlusive. Even they will flag ones who have bad english. That's a stupid thing I have ever seen in a worldwide community. It is like even we say " I 'll kick you ass because your english is bad" It a kind of arogancy and racism in worldwide platform like whaleshares. Whaleshares members not only from english country. I say " ASU"

I like how you have put it On Whaleshares, everyone's more or less starting out on equal footing, and will have a chance to be rewarded as such. and that's the essence of the whaleshares community, equal rights for all without discrimination of any kind.

Whaleholes ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

for some Flagging is life, they are butthurt for some reason...

I'm new on whaleshares, and i already see a lot of difference! Hopefully it well catch on to that mass and be adopted world-wide.

You are absolutely right, when a "war of banderazos" begins, you do not know when it will end and in the end almost nobody wins from these wars.

Forms are formed and one as a small school is affected by having a relationship with a certain enemy whale.

You should leave a clear and precise omentary as a warning and if you insist on damaging the community you will be given an ultimatum so that the whole community is aware and in accordance with the action.

Already these simple mechanics trump the ones at Steemit.

A much fairer system than steemit. These flag wars are just ego boosters
