Blurt is neutral, but I am not.

There have been some bloggers that weren't happy with my recent posts about the Hero DAO and the idea to fundraise for military aid for Ukraine in the form of drones.

Firstly I would like to disclaim, just like Vitalik has a stance in this war, so do I, I am 100% in support of Ukraine in the war efforts. However in the heat of passion, I failed to realise that not all of the Blurt community may share this view, and doing so in the name of Blurt was likely not the correct thing to do.

I hereby disclaim that this post is purely my own opinion and does not express the views of the Blurt community.

Why am I so fervent in the support of Ukraine?

I am quite an empathetic person, I feel very deeply what others are feeling, maybe I also have a hero complex, I grew up on comics and superheroes, I don't believe in standing by and watching innocents suffer, Russia in my opinion is the invader, they invaded Ukraine and are killing innocents. The weak response of sanctions only by the west has left me feeling like bullies can do what they want without repercussions.

I feel for our users who are stuck in this situation, I don't feel words are enough, please watch this video of one of our users @priyanarc who is stuck in Ukraine and beside herself with fear, if you were in her position would you not want your community to do everything possible to aid in your situation, beyond mere words? This is why I feel so passionate about taking action.

Response on drones

After writing my first post about gathering interest and information about a Hero DAO which sends private forces to aid victims in combat situations I realised that drones are a better idea because it eliminates the human factor and hopefully one-day wars will be fought only with drones and not humans.

Germany is supplying 1000 anti-tank weapons, should they be condemned for doing that too? Will those weapons not take the lives of the enemy?
https://www.business-standard.com/article/international/germany-to-supply-ukraine-with-1-000-anti-tank-weapons-500-stinger-missile-122022700045_1.html

I also don't believe that sending any sort of external aid, military or otherwise will activate Putin to start a global war...he is already activated; today he has already announced that he has activated his nuclear forces, also please watch this video that attests to his insane personality and a diminished sense of fear, it is clear that he is not rational and rational soft measures won't work. I may be convinced otherwise if there is a different outcome after the impending talks between Russia and Ukraine. https://www.instagram.com/tv/CacbAvJqXig/?utm_medium=copy_link

Again I iterate that I retract Blurt's association with this idea and own it as my own, Blurt like Ethereum should be neutral but that doesn't mean that I have to be.

Dropping my witness vote for @double-u

I have kept my vote for @double-u intact for a long time for diplomatic reasons, despite not always seeing eye-to-eye with his views.

His recent post was a public attempt to undermine me and make me out to be a villain of sorts.
https://blurt.blog/blurtgerman/@double-u/2022-kw-09-live-pub-treffpunkt-ohne-zusammenhang-without-any-context-ger-eng

This itself is not the worst part, what I can't forgive, given my personal stance in this war is the following statement:

I also find it naive to think Ukraine can win a war against Russia.
Supplying weapons to Ukraine will only prolong the war, lead to many more dead people, and possibly a terrible escalation.
What really made me sick then were the trails of slime left there by way of comments.
Guys, until a few days ago, most of you didn't even know where Ukraine is located. Probably some of you don't know it today either.
Quote @double-u

In this statement he takes a defeatist attitude and believes that Ukraine must lose so the rest of the world can be safe, so basically, Russia must swiftly destroy Ukraine and its people so the war can end and not escalate to nuclear.

It is my opinion that the nuclear threat will just be kicked down the road and Russia needs to be disarmed of nuclear power, or Putin removed from power or both preferably.

In his statement he refers to Blurt as HIS site and that anyone with a different opinion is not welcome here and further mocks that most of us didn't know where Ukraine was on the map before this, basically putting down the intelligence of the reader in additions to user comments being labelled as "slime". I may disagree with @double-u put at no point have I said anything he says is slime or similar.

To all the comment writers who think this is so great with the killer drones and mercenaries: You are unwanted here on my site!

In addition to this @double-u has employed subversive tactics to undermine me and the foundation, rather than offering me personal council and coming to me personally and advising of a better approach he has chosen on several occasions to run to Jacob to try push his agenda in addition to rallying his supporters to slander me and the dev team in public.

@tekraze has borne the brunt of some of his supporters' public comments despite the great work he has been doing in adding features to the frontend such as avatars, emoticons, and much more, currently there is a high risk of @double-u alienating the dev team.

I also note that his Direct Messages with Jacob and myself have always been to push personal agendas and never about growing Blurt as a whole, from wanting us to do something about @afrog who was slandering him in public to telling the foundation which of his associates to vote as witnesses.

Everything is a complaint, none of the improvements our developers do are good enough there is always something wrong with the idea. When offered to operate his own front-end he doesn't want to fund it but wants the foundation to fund everything, I note that Blurtlatam is independent and self-funded with much fewer resources.

Sadly @double-u does not contribute to the external growth of Blurt and just forms a self-rewarding circle of rewards around those who feed his ego by participating in his Pub and generating him post rewards to accelerate the growth of his account far beyond any other user, this isn't even an app or virtual pub, it is just a blog post with comments, he is the biggest account on Blurt and never built any platforms (@thecallmedan built 3speak for example on Hive) hasn't contributed to any personally supported dapps or development, nor organised any external partnerships or airdrops for the Blurt community in any sort of ambassadorial capacity.

He and his supporters are also in favour of economic restrictions on the blockchain, such as removal of delegations to stop vote trading as well as shunning those who support such services, I speak for myself but I do not see this as economic freedom and I feel the underlying issue is that these accounts and they users are catching up to him in influence and as such are a threat to him. Without delegations communitys cannot "Voltron" into a super whale collectively and hence the existing whales will always remain with the greater influence.

Closing thoughts

In summary I wish to apologise to the community about the drone post, I see now that putting that forward on behalf of the Blurt community was not decentralised nor was it considering that others may not support the idea.

The Hero DAO post was however an exploratory post and I mentioned it needed much refinement and discussion and likely would not be tokenised on Blurt anyway, it was merely a discussion post so nothing to worry about there.

I believe strongly that Blurt needs to be a positive community to help others who are going through horrors in the real world, at the very least a place of solace and a place to vent and get emotional support. It is very easy for users like me to get personally caught up in their plight and respond emotionally, so please understand where I was coming from in that regard.

There are bad men. They're really bad and they're a minority of the population and they tear their way through overly agreeable populations. And to keep them from dominating you need good men who are also capable of being quite terrible.

I know who i am , i know my curse ,.. i am perceived as terrible on times ,.. cause i care ,.. not for fame and fortune . ;-)

I saw that post today, and have heard that clip before. Jordan is an extraordinary master of human nature. I have been studying this subject for 21 years, and have learned a lot about myself and others from people like Jordan.

I have never perceived you as terrible, firstly because I have only known you for a short period of time. But to attack a man with insults, who has not personally attacked you, is not very caring. 😊 Maybe you were having a bad day; or maybe you allowed yourself to be swept into someone else's conflict. Don't know, but no hard feelings, and I appreciate you and your support.

Fuck off you virtue signalling wanker, the war is 50 minutes from my door, any weapons added aid said war, get a job in poli tiks, it suits you well, keep your drones, your thoughts away from us, signal your virtue somewhere else, like a train it is, virtue signalling, the next one will be along soon, come and fight or shut up.

That was completely uncalled-for, immature, callous, abusive and mean-spirited! This man has done nothing to personally attack you. He has the right to express himself, just as we all do; whether we agree or not. If you're so dissatisfied with Blurt and it's leadership, and want to leave, then just leave. Attacking a man with such venomous vitriol, who you know has a great responsibility to maintain a social decorum, is pure cowardice. You and your band of faceless, nameless wannabe keyboard gangsters are behaving like a bunch of obstreperous, childish brats! Grow up, Mate!

  ·  3 months ago  ·  

" He has the right to express himself" so do I, and anyone that wants to end this conflict in Ukraine and help the people from there should do so in a proper manner by helping them with clothes, with food, with shelter, not with a damn drone to kill people, I am shocked at you now too, is it OKAY if I spout "let us fund a nuclear bomb" ???? Of course not, and it is not okay that he wants to add more weapons to a war that all countries are sending weapons to for profit.

Adding to a conflict that is ongoing is in no way helping to end it.

  ·  3 months ago  ·  

And you think some lunatic that wants to buy a drone to bomb people is moral? I am at a loss for words.

You know full well that this is not the way that mature, compassionate and well-intentioned adults address issues in public. You have been on the other side of such vitriolic attacks, and it is not pleasant! If this is how you approach the resolution of differences, then you are no different than the war-mongers you claim to abhor.

My life is now full of stress, the war whores fly above me just like 1 minute ago, the sirens are screeching, you will have to forgive me for not matching up to what you think I should be like, what you think I should act like when bombs are dropping, when 4 million Ukrainians have arrived, want peace, not war, want to be safe.

Yes, forgive me for not wanting more war.

Keep your bible bashing thoughts to yourself, not interested. There are 200.000 women and children in my town from the Ukraine, a town that was built for the 25,000 that live here, if you want to do something, raise some funds for them, not bombs, not drones.
They need peace not more war, do you not think they have had enough of that?

So children and civilians must die with no protection so you can be safe, what a hero, well done. You don't think when Ukraine is conquered your area won't be next?

Providing drone assistance and providing any weapons to Ukraine will actually prolong the war in Ukraine, as a result, civilians will be victims and suffer. And this doesn't solve the problem. But adds to the problem. I think the best way is a negotiating table and the two countries are willing to agree on the agreements that have been made previously.

I welcome you sharing your views in the pleasant way you just did, I respond to you in return in a tempered way, with only my personal view and no desire to fight with you. Your opinion is noble and I do wish it would be the case; however I also do not believe Putin can be reasoned with and the agreements he would push for would be tantamount to loss of sovereignty, and subservience of a nation, which is against what we fight for in crypto (self-sovereignty).

It is my view, and my view alone that he respects might and force and that is the only way he can be dealt with.

Today a childrens' and maternity hospital was shelled and many mothers and children trapped beneath the rubble and potentially dead, even one child dying is too many and aggressors should be stopped with everything the world has, put in front of that child as defense. The world was too slow to act and thus forces advanced too far into the country and all of those mothers and children died.

Ukraine accused Russia of bombing a children’s hospital and maternity ward in the besieged Ukrainian port city of Mariupol, trapping children and others under the rubble in what Ukraine’s president called an “atrocity”.

“It is horrifying to see the type of, the barbaric use of military force to go after innocent civilians in a sovereign country,” Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters.
Source

We are not barbarians, we should not sacrifice even one child, so the rest of the world can feel a little bit safer that Putin won't escalate further, he needs to be disarmed before the entire world can ever feel safe again, otherwise there will always be this latent threat. I don't believe he will be disarmed by peaceful protest, he simply doesn't care.

Military might would have in my opinion stopped his advances at right the border and kept civilians safe in the backlines, yes there is the risk of nuclear escalation but it might come to that anyway. Putin is dying and has no fear as he has nothing to lose.

Zelensky said Western countries would eventually make a no-fly zone, but only once "World War Three" had begun, and by then "it will be too late".
He added: "Believe me, if it's prolonged this way, you will see... they will close the sky but we will lose millions of people."

With all due respect, my opinion in this matter is neutral. Speaking of war regardless of who started it, there must be a reason why it happened. I just thought that the war would cause loss and suffering between the two sides. Therefore, the path of peace is the best way and how? I don't even know. Maybe there should be an initiative from the third party state involved, which can bridge, facilitate and bring about peace. Hopefully. ✌️🙏

Those hive bullies would love to see everyone here fighting and destroying the platform….. don’t give them pleasure….. let blurt be about unity and respecting everyone’s opinion. An act of war is forcing your views and way of life on others and being unable to engage in healthy debate. Don’t rise to it even on a small scale. United we are powerful don’t divide.

  ·  3 months ago  ·  

I will shut up when people stop banging on about buying drones to kill more people, I have enough listening to the military planes every day, listening to the bombs, I want no part in furthering war. My stance is clear.

We need to remember blurt is neutral, all opinions are valid, we don’t have to respect all opinions but we don’t need to attack people for theirs as that’s how the seed of war begins when healthy debate fails.

If only that little drone could have taken out Putin …. And then go back in time to take out Hitler.

I sure would like to go back in time and take out Hitler and Putin though.

Even suicide bombers believe they are dying for a just cause. Ppl need to stop being open to manipulation of propaganda using them as pawns, be it religion/ government etc etc we need to stop following orders and turning on our neighbours.

But what would it have done? I don’t know as mot researched enough and no one rly knows but lots of evidence hitler was used as a front man to a degree, we don’t know someone else wouldn’t have done the same in his place. What we rly need to do is learn as a society and wake up to propaganda and attacking others due to what we are told. Logic z makes. Valid point. Everyone fighting a war thinks they are doing the lords work so to speak. What rly needs to happen is every day ppl refusing to fight and argue with each other and unifying.

True. Maybe we should ban nuclear weapons, and all weapons.

It’s hard to take something back that’s created

I wish we could but it’s probably useless s a country will get them off radar and use them with no defence. Probably at this point it makes sense for Russia and USA to hold because if only Russia does we are screwed

Well…. Putin has learned he can do whatever he wants now… and nobody will lift a finger. He can take over the whole world if he wants. We can do nothing at all to stop him.

Putin is getting old tho so more of a worry but surely he wants a legacy

I watched an info or the world vs America, right now America could destroy the entire world. So Russia is nothing really without Nukes, so it’s a done deal once America steps in. Although nukes is another story and a suicide missions rly

Putin doesn’t care if he kills 8 billion people though.

Not exactly he knows that Changes the minute he touches nato land, outside of that it’s slippery tho

Nope…he has nukes … he will use them on Europe, or anyone who gets in his way.

I am not neutral either.
Putin and his war bring so much suffering....
Thanks for this post and clarifying that many Blurt members are against the purchase of drones.
Don't you think you should be a little more careful when publishing posts like the one about buying drones?
Your name is known, you could get in trouble.
Also, you could jeopardize the blockchain. We had enough technical problems last year. There are many good Russian hackers....

Apart from that, I wish wars don't break out here on the Blockchain.
Opinions can be so opposite that you can't come to a common denominator. But you can accept each other.
We can also argue, but in the end we should stick together....somehow....

Let me begin by saying, I love @afrog.

As somebody who is in close contact to somebody living in Ukraine, they will fight simply because their lives depend upon it. To quote something he said to me recently:

I always dreamed that I would work for charity. Instead, it looks like I will have to kill people.

Before continuing, it's important to note that I know where Ukraine is. I knew where Ukraine was before this war started. I know that Ukraine has been preparing for this war for much longer than the West were aware of what was happening. Did the all knowing double-u know this? I doubt it. He's clearly not as smart as he thinks he is otherwise he wouldn't be going around pissing everybody off.

As you already know, I've disagreed with his abuse of the platform since I joined. Correction: I've disagreed with his abuse of his platform since I joined. It's nice to see that others are now seeing what I saw on the day I registered and by speaking out against it shows true leadership which as patronising as this sounds, makes me proud.

Back to the Ukraine - Perhaps it's worth considering how such a small country is putting up such a strong defence... it's certainly not a fluke, or luck. Like I said, they've been preparing for this war since Russia annexed Crimea in 2014. They didn't fight then and who came to help? Who cared?

Ever since that happened, they've known that the events in the past week would happen. Putin has often spoken about his regret of the collapse of the Soviet Union so it's clear that Ukraine is the 1st step of a wider agenda. It would be naive to believe otherwise.

To think that Ukraine resigning will save lives is also naive. It will ruin the lives of millions of Ukrainians who have no desire to "be liberated" and this should be clear by the fact that they are fighting so bravely. Then who's next? Estonia? Then Latvia? They already "own" Belarus. World War 3 has begun and the world is slowly realising this.

I don't have the patience to read all of the comments nor the petty bickering. double-u and his cronies severely damaged my perception of Blurt when I joined to the extent that I didn't "commit" in the way that I'd planned to.

I'm rambling so I'll stop now by saying: @afrog's a legend.

  ·  4 months ago  ·  

High five! Excellent comment, that vindicates everything I have just realised, I am only sorry it took me so long. If you have contact with @afrog please wish him well and let him know I am sorry the foundation trusted @double-u's lies about him and pulled our support as a result.

Hi Megadrive. We can talk. If you want. But here in public only. No more backroom talks!

  ·  4 months ago  ·  

Hi @afrog, firstly I am sorry the foundation listened to a certain voice that requested you be removed from the active witness set for speaking out against him, there is really not much more to it. You are most welcome to validate on Blurt again and welcome in our community, if you are in the light I will stand up for you and I am sure @tekraze will too. Let's not give power to those who seek to divide us, the mute button works very well instead,

Thank you @megadrive for your well-tempered words. I'm here because you already said "sorry" in another comment. That's actually enough and I accept the apology. Incantations of the solidarity of the last, righteous people also sound nice, but in view of the massive damage I have suffered as a result of an obviously wrong decision by the foundation, the appeal does not really tempt me to new activities.

You and I could analyze what actually happened. But that doesn't make much sense either. Because intrigues don't need analysis. This clandestine weapon is what the word says. The foundation followed a lie. Unreflective and without counter-check. Your own high reputation, by which you measure yourself, suffers as a result. I can almost feel it making you think.

But being offended, self-reproach and lamentation is useless. People fail. This is especially true in a setup where money is involved. Therefore, it should rather be considered how to avoid such traps. I think that the principle of an open discourse is a basic requirement to protect DPOS from avoidable wrong decisions. The problems and fortunes of a DPOS blockchain must not be negotiated in Discord backrooms. This is how you mix a democratic system with the private. There lies the poison of conspiracy, seduction and in the end the guaranteed crash of all dreams.

While I really respect both view points, I don't think we will have to get into an argument here. What I have been told is that BLURT is a welcoming blockchain and this thing should stay this way. I have seen discussion mentioning @actifit here which is heartwarming 😊. Very happy that BLURT foundation is excited about the idea. Actifit is going to connect several blockchains and hence bring utility to each of the blockchain while building its own ecosystem. Actifit Defi is one among them.

Still MASS adoption is a problem on crypto space and Project is continuously looking options on how easily it can be a global dapp. There is some unique things here on Blurt ecosystem and there is always something to learn everywhere. We learn we grow!

Finally I would like to end by saying Never reply when you are angry.Never make a promise when you are happy.Never make a decision,when you are sad!

Never think that war is not a crime, no matter how urgent or how it may be judged.
Only the dead saw the end of the war.

On the fifth day of Russian troops' entry into Ukraine, delegations from both countries began talks aimed at ending the war.

The Ukrainian president's office has said it wants a ceasefire and withdrawal of Russian troops.

Vladimir Medinsky, an adviser to Putin, the head of the Russian delegation, said Moscow wanted an understanding that would protect the interests of both sides.

Ahead of the meeting, Ukrainian President Yelensky called on Russian troops to lay down their arms. At the same time, he called on the European Union to grant Ukraine speedy membership.

We want peace

Thank you for the separation.

I also believe you will garner more support from a voluntary fund if it is designed to distribute aid to those within our community being impacted, whether through help with necessities or helping fund an escape across the border rather than equipping one side or the other with weapons.

I appreciate you took the time to let me know you had made this response. I was very shook by your initial posts and am glad to see you have modified your vision to respect those of us who want no part in military actions. Humanitarian free association I can get behind, military for corrupt governments I can't.

Zitat @megadrive
"Germany is supplying 1000 anti-tank weapons, should they be condemned for doing that too? Will those weapons not take the lives of the enemy?"

Unfortunately, a special part of this statement is missing. Germany has opposed the delivery of weapons and the blocking of SWIFT until the very end. Only after pressure from the EU, NATO and pleading from Ukraine itself, Germany gave in. I still think it is a big mistake.
But the big difference is Germany is a state and are committed to the EU and NATO. We as a community of Blurt, are a blockchain. The community is great but we are not a state, are not in the EU, NATO or any other state alliance. There is no comparison at all and the question should not be asked. "Why is Germany allowed to do this, but Blurt is not?"

My personal thought.

We can still help.

A humanitarian aid I still find a good thing to help the refugees, especially the children. To recap your thought, a superhero helps the needy and weak. With this step, they can be the hero in the cape, which is worth many more.

Freedom of expression

Everyone has the right to express his opinion and everyone should respect the opinion of others.
Here it becomes special, this blockchain unites many people with many different views and experience in your life. This is considered a global platform to unite and yet it is very difficult. Here it is always important not to lose respect for each other. It is the course of things that there is also disagreement, the challenge is to overcome this to continue to work together.

The world needs peace. Friends and families of both countries are all praying for peace, so I just hope the government of these countries embrace peace. Thank you for your kind words.
Peace is what we need!!!
Peace is what we need!!!
Peace is what we need!!!

I really like your heart felt letter to the community. That was very admirable of you to apologies like that. I agree, things are bad in Ukraine and I feel for the people suffering. I see that being a founding witness can sometimes make it easy to say "blurt" sides with this or sides with that. So thank you for correcting it, and leaving blurt a-political. It is certainly the correct business sense thing to do.

I'm new here. Made an investment cause I like what I see. I also enjoy the positive atmosphere. I'm sorry to see the drama with your fellow witness. I don't know the full details, but I'm all for zero restrictions economically here. People can do what they want with their up-votes.

I just hope someone with the ability and know how can build a front end that gives you the trending posts for various topics on the front page.

You certainly earned my respect with this post. You just got my first vote for witness.
If you want to learn more about me. I just posted my intro on my blog. Hope you have received this well and keep up the great work!

This is the platform everyone can express own views. And it is totally free to support anyone . Yesterday we also expressed our opinions, but @double-u sir become angry.
But perhaps he don't know that his country also supporting Ukraine.

Double-u sir is in his pride because he said a big amount of BP So he told @tanweeralam with all his pride, leave my site, you are danger for me,
go to Ukraine to support them , I want to say , yes we are supporting Ukraine because supporting oppressed people is humanity and our duty too. If anyone will not support and help the oppressed then oppressors will become bold.
We want peace
We need peace
We love peace
We stand for peace

I am new to blurt platform. Sometimes I used to join the pub of @double-u to have some fun there . But because my blurt power is very little so he told me that If you want to support them, then go to Ukraine. Supporting Ukraine and save the lives of the oppressed people was only my point of view. And there is nothing wrong with supporting people. And anyway, that was my personal opinion. Someone might agree or disagree. But I was very disappointed to see the reply of @double-u and it hurt me very much. But I didn't say anything, I always respect elders. And that's what my teachers taught me. That's why I did not say anything after that I thought I would leave this platform. But I am very thankful to @tekraze sir and @megadrive sir and also to the people who raised my point and encouraged me . And I'm glad to see that there is no shortage of good people on this peletfarm.
I am grateful to you all.

I am requesting you lovely friend please don't give up blurt because @double-u is not owner of the blurt platform , anyone can not remove you from here
Blurt for everyone

We have been able to read at least 50 posts about this current Ukraine issue. We sympathize with the people of Ukraine and we have been able to get the community members to leave a message of Hope for all those hurting in one way or another all over the world 👉 Blurt Unite - Let's heal the world with our message of hope.

We have openly displayed our support and advocated for peace on Twitter.

@onchain-curator stands for peace.

I am totally in for peace to reign between both countries please. The bloodshed is too much and innocent lives are paying for it. We will look back today and pray for those families affected

Jesus Himself is fighting with the Ukraine. God is protecting the people of the Ukraine.

God has already defeated Putin.

There's this saying that if you decide to stay neutral when someone is being oppressed then you are taking the side of the oppressor.
Peace should be our utmost priority at this point
We should stand for justice not for injustice
If standing with Ukraine is the peace we all crave for then our tentacles should hold tight to Ukraine until peace is restored
I stand for peace

We need to stand up for justice all the time, it is the responsibility of each and every one of us to protest against injustice

Let's spread love, not hatred
Peace not war
Justice not injustice.
Remaining neutral in a face of this war isn't the best thing to do. Remember Dante's course: the hottest part of hell is reserved for those who maintain neutrality in time of crisis and war. I totally understand why you should apologize but I give you a thumbs up for taking the side of the oppressed. Let peace be our language

This also shows how crypto is 100% open and can be used to send funds from any region of the world. Crypto is the future, and don't forget to keep praying for Ukraine

Yes that shows the extent people have gone in proffering solutions to this menace.
This is a modern world and I personally think it is not good for any president to send it tanks into another country because he feels he can destroy them in a matter of hours for not dancing to his tunes.

It is total negligence to humanity and world peace.

I may partially agree with you supporting Ukraine with drones and weapons. But the decision for the drones was your personal and not blurt. But because you are at a top position, people may think it is wrong, thanks for the clarification.

And about the people targeting us devs, is fine with me. At least they are honest with their intention. I will see more of the small user's opinion rather than whales asking me to do or not do stuff.

But the way they are insulting people, first with VTS users, and now on post comments, and showing again. It's bad and very unexpected from a person like @double-u in terms of both age and power.

In the end, we all hope for peace.

But our gurus (ten gods) have asked us to stand and defend the rights of people who can not defend themselves, so we should be standing by the people of Ukraine from at least our censorship-free blogs and comments.

Peace everyone

You have always put in your best ideas for the growth of blurt sir.
I personally admire your dev creativity and that of @saboin.
Again I love @eastmael's creativity a lot too.
I do not know you three personally but actions speaks better than words.

I personally do not use VTS not because of what anyone said but because I always get support from members who believe in my little creativity and contributions for blurt growth.
I do not advice against it either because I believe the invention of the COAL list has taken care of problems that might be associated with it.

I believe so much in blurt for many reasons which I may not say now.
And one of my believes reiterate on the fact that blurt need more investors to grow it's value.
And the dev works I see you guys put in here will surely keep attracting more investors.
Actifit is here already and that is a good development.

I encourage you @tekraze to keep the pace because I personally support your activities on blurt because none has ever caused harm to blurt growth in anyway.

I feel for our users who are stuck in this situation, I don't feel words are enough, please watch this video of one of our users @priyanarc who is stuck in Ukraine and beside herself with fear, if you were in her position would you not want your community to do everything possible to aid in your situation, beyond mere words?

I watched the video now and tears were dropping from my eyes, this is really sad. The fear and tension are too much to bear, I hope a miracle happen as soon as possible, let keep praying for Ukraine

Loading...

It is heartbreaking to see Priyan cry and I cannot imagine the kind of danger she and the rest of Ukraine is in.

I can only pray to the Almighty to bring peace in the world.

In my opinion the best thing to do right now is to send our donations to the Ukraine Government. They will know the best way to fund their struggle.

I respect your this lovely post sir from the bottom of my heart because you have mentioned some important things. That is we must support the Ukrainian and as much possible as help them. If some countries try to stop this pathetic situation and help them then it is possible. Russia in these days has become invader I think. Because they don't make different between innocent and children, old man they only know how to defeat and kill them.

  ·  4 months ago  ·  

I agree with you on this. I want that if all countries together want to stop this war, then they can stop this war and Ukraine needs a lot of help in this pathetic time, then give all their help to all.

Hopefully this is not a substitute for war between Russia and Ukraine. Do not let the war out there, we are destroyed here. I have great respect for both of you @megadrive - @double-u, so I really hope this can be resolved amicably. Don't show the trouble between you two to us, as people of Blurt, you are our role model here. It is very sad to have to see our two leaders at odds with each other. Outside of gun wars, this is a war of words.

Be at peace. May peace grow in everyone's heart.

I generally don't get involved with @double-u at a blockchain level, I leave him to his devices and freedoms, the only difference here is he created a post aimed directly at me rather than talking to me quietly and giving me good advice to maybe distance Blurt from my personal view, in my mind it is a power play as there were better ways to handle it than going behind my back to others and writing a post about me. https://blurt.blog/blurtgerman/@double-u/2022-kw-09-live-pub-treffpunkt-ohne-zusammenhang-without-any-context-ger-eng

You all know @bestkizito the cool guy who made the Blurt shirts happen, well he is taking a break from Blurt due to emotional abuse from @double-u in private message off-chain*, it was said "@double-u was kicking against his association with the foundation." As such we have temporarily lost a team member and caused a dent in the unity of the Nigerian community on Blurt.

*Edit: after seeing the comment by Bestikito below and chatting to him further, it has been clarified that his mental health has been affected by him witnessing how Double-u treats me and also outsiders that come to the "Pub" as shown by an offended user also below in the comments, there was no DM between the parties other than the one by Bestkizito that did not receive a reply and was taken also to be a dismissal.

I just hope this tension ends peacefully. At least someone should start to communicate with one another, talk to each other from heart to heart. I'm sure both of you are wise people who can do that well.

Since my early days here, I have seen a lot of passion and hope built on love. Don't let it be because of ego, love that already exists just disappears. Of course this is not something we expected. Maybe I'm not the right person to say this to both of you, but as a person who is tired of a life filled with prejudice and conflict, I dare to say this. Whether you realize it or not, you and the other witnesses here are a complete mirror of this community. Where everything that our leaders do here, will affect the character and attitude of society as a whole.

This is true, because to solve problems not by fighting, but in a cool head. Peace must take precedence over choosing war. If war broke out, a lot would have to be sacrificed there!

Wow i am shocked that you say that openly about double-u after i had some weird discussion with her friend telling me they both are fully involved in blurt and we should all be involved financially like they are for blurt .
I told her my VP is 20 vs 500 for double-u and my account was bugging since the beginning and of course i couldnt grow a 6M coins stake , i imagine they got it for cheap too . Anyway , it sounds they hate most of us in blurt so your decision is the right one .

Also of course it is normal to feel compassion for people who suffer and you are a beautiful human being for that .

Elli @elkezaksek very often wins all three quizzes in the pub. That's already nine 100% votes. Every Sunday. She is just lightning fast. This can be confirmed by many guests, who always grant her these winnings. They all congratulate her on it. Additionally she gets votes from me because of her work for Uganda. Nothing about that is bad!

I prioritize humanity and peace. Every time I see the bloodshed taking place, my heart breaks.

I see, this Ukraine is in a position to be attacked, not as the perpetrator who started the war.

In such a position, plus, the world seems slow to act (maybe I'm wrong), so it is very human if the sympathy of the people of the world goes to Ukraine.

I stand on the side of Ukraine...

In a day you can make two very big decisions. Luckily the decisions you make are only on Blurt. Imagine if you were in a position of war, you would not be able to make two decisions like what happened today.

Only those who are going through tough times can understand the pain of it. It is easy for us to be here and say something about them. I think there is nothing wrong in supporting those who are going through a tough time and that blurt should stand with them together.

Having different opinion is not a bad thing but imposing our opinions and pov on others is wrong. I hope the best for blurt and also for people of Ukraine.

I don't have strength to say that we should ignore the situation and let it be because we never know when the same situation comes on us.

I strongly believe that Blurt needs to be a positive community to help others who are going through horrors in the real world, at least a place of comfort and a place to vent and get emotional support.

Blurt is Love and Kindness...

We all wish that this was not happening, that there is no war or hatred...

  ·  4 months ago  ·  

I see now that putting that forward on behalf of the Blurt community was not decentralised nor was it considering that others may not support the idea.

Thank you for clarifying your words in this publication, it is notorious that the effusiveness of the moment, the heat of what we live led to generate words that at some point can generate a general confusion. It is well known that we can all have different or close opinions, at the end of the day we are human beings and we have the duty to inform, to express our ideas to be able to say what we believe in, what we are made of. Thinking differently does not make us enemies, from the position of respect we can always debate many points, even admitting that we are wrong.

I am happy to be a part of that country that don't support this war and where people want it to be stopped.

If we were being attacked by some other countries we also would have appreciated any kind of help from any other country. So it is not right to say that we should stay out of this war , thank God people with this rubbish mentality and thinking are not in powers or else the entire world would have stayed silent as if nothing happened to Ukraine.

I stand with Ukraine in tough times.

Hi.
Actually, I wanted to be in bed for a long time... Well, whatever.

So first off, I think it's good that you've retracted that you're speaking on behalf of all of Blurt. A lot of people really don't like the drone story and don't want anything to do with it.

On the question…

Germany is supplying 1000 anti-tank weapons, should they be condemned for doing that too? Will those weapons not take the lives of the enemy?

Yes, that sucks as well and Germany shouldn't get involved either!

I will not comment on the story of @megadrive vs. @double-u (for the time being), as it has become a massively personal matter between you two.

And before I enter this battlefield with combat drones, I'll have a good night's sleep. 😊

Good night.

I salute your reaction. And I salute your spirit. I also want every blurTians to agree to stop this war and Ukraine needs full help in this pathetic situation. In this pathetic situation, all the countries of the world should think about this situation and help Ukraine.
The Ukrainian government has issued an order to run the train free to bring people trapped in the Ukrainian capital Kiev to safe places. These trains will take people to the western regions of Ukraine, where is no war, but the situation is normal. Meanwhile, the Poland government has said that Indian students will be given shelter in Poland without a visa.
May God protect all people from this war.

So many great countries doing great things to help the Ukrainian people. It’s a testament to the goodness and kindness that still exists in this world. There is hope for mankind.

Yes, so many countries doing well to help but I forgot add this in comment.
Thanks, God bless you!

It’s great to see the goodness in humans on this planet still….

wow that's very good information

It is really sad to see all this. If someone is thinking that Ukraine must lose the war so the rest of the world can be safe he/she has lost humanity.

@priyanarc calls me brother and she is going through a tough time and i am sad that I can't do anything for her. I can just pray that's what in my hands.

Also Ukraine losing does not means that the war will end and the world will come to peace. anyone who is talking like this must keep himself in the same situation.

What will you do if someone comes and start attacking your family ?

will you stand their and see so that you are safe and your family is being killed ? Probably no , you will rather fight for them.

There is a difference between Self defence and starting the war.

With fees, Blurt blockchain is for social media only, we won't have games or other type of apps. This is why me, double-u and other users want to make reward distribution mechanism FAIR. Without it, we are going to be worse than Steem. Hive fixed the vote selling and circle trading problem with downvotes. We can do it by removing delegations (you are against) or with setting up higher voting fees for VTS accounts. Without mechanism which prevents maximizers from taking from reward pool much more than regular user, we won't attract new investors.

With fees, Blurt blockchain is for social media only, we won't have games or other type of apps.

How does fees stops us from having games or other apps for blurt ?

RoninNetwork , BSC , Ethereum , Polygon , etc they all have fees but have so many dapps build on them.

  ·  4 months ago  ·  

If I wanted to create a game with a lot of transactions why would I use blurt instead of hive? Not having downvotes is for a game not that important.

Other blockchains have higher fees sure but they also have a lot more users. More users = more money.

When it comes to building games that will be a whole new thing with lots of functions. It is not necessary that there will be fees for every transactions for the game.

If I wanted to create a game with a lot of transactions why would I use blurt instead of hive?

I can counter ask you that why will you use hive and not Binance, Ronin , or , Polygon network.

Anyways point is if we create a game or any other Dapp on blurt then they will not be following fees rules for every transaction. It will be decided by the person who is building the app on top of blurt network.

I might be wrong so i would like to mention @saboin for help. I think he can answer this question better.

  ·  4 months ago  ·  

Every transaction on Blurt has a fee. That is part of the blockchain’s code. You can’t bypass it. You can only ask the witnesses to vote for a lower fee.

Thank you for enlightening me with this knowledge and so that means if someday a game is built on blurt blockchain their will be fees for every transaction.

  ·  4 months ago  ·  

Correct.

  ·  4 months ago  ·  

If I was a dev and wanted to build app, I would be looking for fee less blockchain

  ·  4 months ago  ·  

A dev would look for tools available as well the community support, not just the fees. The fees anyways get managed when the people using are benefitting from it.

I wouldn't mind creating any application here if I have the time without worrying about fees.

Fees have nothing to do with games or development. ETH has huge fees yet people have invested billions in defi, and games.

I remember investing around $800 in Axie infinity game and the fees were huge so we waited days so that the fees would be lower. We did not drop the idea of investing in Axie, we just delayed it.

@kamranrkploy, @ZahidSun and I have spent a lot of time discussing about bringing/creating a game on Blurt blockchain and if you or anyone else can build one then I'll help with the funding and running it.


Posted from https://blurt.live

  ·  4 months ago  ·  

Well it's just about the amount of users on a blockchain. Why are there so many apps and so high fees on ETH? Because ETH has a lot more ppl using it than here. Double the user base and you can quadruple the coin price.

Just compare the prices for NFTs: they are multiple times higher on ETH than on other chains because there are more ppl. And more ppl means more $$$ and more $$$ brings in more ppl. Because of that ppl are still paying these fees on ETH.

But why would a game developer create a game here if there are other blockchains with more ppl and less fees? Just take a look at splinterlands, do you think it would jave survived with the current blurt fees? 0.1 blurt per transaction? And there are a lot transactions.

I don't see any advantages for blurt when it comes to games. Why would a dev chose blurt instead of hive? Not having downvotes is just a social media thing but not important for apps.

Why are ppl paying these fees on ETH? Because there are so many users and many users means more money. NFTs are selling for idiotic amounts of $ because of so many ppl who are trading them or are hoping to sell them for more. Take a look at NFTs on hive, they are selling for less because there are less users. But at least the fees are much lower there (only service fees and no fee from the blockchain).

And now take a look at blurt, even less users and higher fees than hive. Where are the advantages for blurt from the perspective of a game creator?

Why should a developer use blurt with it's fees when there are steem and hive without fees?
If blurt wants such thing like games then there need to be some nice blockchain features.
