It's a shame what this sub has become. Any re-post of a "news" article gets upvotes. But someone posting an opinion piece, or worse... looking for other peoples opinions, gets downvoted like crazy.
I know 50% of it is bots from other coins/ projects that auto downvote any "competition" but it's not all bots. There's humans hitting those buttons too.
This used to be a helpfull place. Now it seems so tribalistic that I pitty anyone looking into crypto for the first time & coming here. I have thick skin & don't care. But someone who's just learning ( or trying to learn) coming here for their first impression, is met with so many derogatory comments, I don't blame them for fleeing.
If a friend came by & asked for your opinion / help with their taxes, a business idea, real estate advice, or even thoughts on the best place for an oil change or new tires..... would you say DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH, butthurt newbie, dump your bags & get the f@ck out? Then kick them in the arse with a "down vote" on their way out the door? Just for needing help or asking for advice?
No, you wouldn't. You'd offer them the best advice you had on hand. Or.... if you were unsure yourself, you'd show them how to get better advice from what ever resources were available.
This sub used to be a GREAT resource in & of itself. Now it just seems to be a place where people who bought too high or didn't know how to protect their stack, try to downgrade & punish people for asking the questions they should've asked themselves.
As a community, we can welcome new people into crypto & try to teach them how to research & learn or we can chase them away with all the latest crypto slang & then wonder why there's no "new money" or "increased awareness"
..... Just my opinion. Let the downvotes begin. I started at zero, I can go back. LOL
