Time for Hivewatchers/spaminator to be blacklisted

in #hivewatchers2 years ago (edited)

The time has come that we no longer tolerate the totalitarian and authoritarian actions of @hivewatchers @spaminator.

Although some of their actions have benefited this platform, the over all approach is damaging to the Hive ecosystem.

Their team is profit driven and not totally interested in the long term growth of the Hive ecosystem.

There are also reports of both Criminal/Cartel like behavior + extortion linked to members of @hivewatchers but that has not been entirely verified.

We do not feel its in the interest of the Hive community to continue supporting their service.

Any information regarding their actions can be send to us in a encrypted memo and we will investigate claims of wrong doing by this group of terrorist @hivewatchers. @counterterrorism


Some of us that had been here on Hive/PeakD for some time already. We managed to talk one of our friends, Carrie-Ann Baade , a highly respected Art Professor who exhibits world-wide and is listed on Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carrie_Ann_Baade, to join PeakD/Hive. After her first post got some upvotes, she was harassed by @hivewatchers who posted on a blocked Twitter account of hers demanding that she answer them on there. She has not used that account since January 2020 when somehow her API with Facebook was not working anymore, and she could no longer access that Twitter account.
Apparently now they blacklisted her!
This is the post: https://peakd.com/art/@carrieannbaade/representational-fantastic-exhibition-kirkland-arts-center-washington-society-for-art-of-imagination

I can personally vouch for her - and if anything, then contact her on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/carrieannbaade or on her Website https://carrieannbaade.com/ - or her Instagram https://www.instagram.com/carrieannbaade/ .

This is not just some on-line relation I have with her - we known each other personally for a decade or more and have exhibited together in many shows worldwide, and so have a list of others that are currently (some of the few) serious artists with an international reputation that are still remaining on Hive. Many I know have however turned their backs on it and gave up posting.

It is very hard to recruit serious, world-class artists to this blockchain because of such shenanigans. I have a long list of great artists that just gave up on this - and what you got left are 90% of amateurs.

Congratulations @counterterrorism!
You raised your level and are now a Dolphin!

Will you take this up on Hivewatchers Discord on her behalf @thermoplastic? @chrisrice may be able to help as he just went through a situation with them.

  • Ah, no need i see. I just looked at the post in question & it's sorted and @carrieannbaade appears to be happy.

Thanks for your presence @thermoplasic & a BIG WELCOME to Hive @carrieannbaade

By the way, I bought my first #NFT's yesterday. I'm up to 5 already. It's addictive :-)

Sir I want to read from-spammator

We need to stop hivewatchers

Your plagiarism still exists on the blockchain. Stop doing that and you won't get flagged. Honesty pays off.


In the history. Once things are in the blockchain they are there forever. Downvoting me for pointing out your mistakes does not help your case, but I'm not retaliating. Try making friends instead of enemies.


Wow only 1 copy pasta post and i get downvotes to my original content posts too, nice bro ,but we are doing systems like hivewatchers, hivewatchers are trying make quit here newbies who didnt know aboug copy pasta and they dont earn anything,also i think its people own choice to upvote/downvote not to make mass spam downvote to rip account.

I manually downvote where rewards are not earned. You can appeal to @hivewatchers to get the flags stopped. A good reputation is hard to win, but easy to lose. If you had any idea of the volume of abuse on Hive you would appreciate what HW do.

Id like to add that "newbies didnt know about copy pasta" are not contributing to the platform therefore it does not matter, the site is not only about earning, you lost a very good income source from @ubg, now you have to find a new one with better content. and steev fyi dosg is about 11-12 years old so dont expect much from him :D
