@dick_turpin love that you've been bullied into doing it properly πŸ˜†

@basil I'm looking at more changes. It started out as a bit of fun but from some of the feedback it looks like I'll have to start doing things properly.

@basil @dick_turpin He'll start 'branding' it soon, then it'll miraculously have its own domain and then a podcast πŸ™‚

@andyc @dick_turpin running down the top 40 microblog posts of the week like the the old singles chart.

@dick_turpin Marvellous !

'@tpheine loves us but doesn’t want to touch our bottom'

@dick_turpin LOL - I missed the 'ponce' thread earlier in the week

@dick_turpin Bloody hell. Steve Clark falls out of love with Steemit. That's like me falling out of love with Man United !

@dick_turpin I haven't used Steem in yonks but revisiting his posts now. He was such an evangelist and invested so much into that platform. I truly hope he hasn't been shafted.

@andyc I would advise being careful and reading between the lines. IMV both sides have a case which is why I'm kinda "On the fence" with this one. I do however have a Hive account as does any former Steemit user, Hive migrated everyone which was nice.

@basil @andyc It's actually not as simple as this but..

Steemit was setup supposedly a quantity of coins were set aside for <airquotes>The Community</airquotes> now, Steemit has what's known as witnesses who host and manage things for free. A guy called Justin Sun, some Crypto marketeer purchased Steemit's stake in the Blockchain, the witnesses didn't like that and revolted and created Hive and so started the Crypto grabbing war.

As I say, there's more to it than that but essentially that's it

@dick_turpin @basil Yeah - as ever, I knew there were two sides to the story and I honestly don't care that much.

@andyc @dick_turpin

Blockchain
Cryptocurrency
Online Community schism

A holy trinity of snooze

@basil @dick_turpin

Yeah - I think that encapsulates it for me.

If you want to write, you just want to write. On paper, a bullet journal, in a private 'diary.txt' using an app on your device or choosing to publish it on the Web.

Those additional things just don't naturally seem to be associated with writing.
