After hostile takeover with help of exchanges now Justin Sun is planning another shit-show.
We noticed some activities on the official Github of Steemit inc. that puts certain posts in a blacklist.
Mostly posts related to Hive are getting blacklisted and won't show up on steemit.com
Likely they will put more posts into their blacklist.
A few posts that included in the blacklist:
["hiveio/announcing-the-launch-of-hive-blockchain", "anyx/it-s-time-to-decentralize", "steempeak/hive-and-url-changes", "steemitboard/steemitboard-shutdown-by-justin-sun", "roelandp/fork-you-hello-hive-my-new-home-are-you-coming-along-the-place-will-be-buzzing", "coruscate/acwmtxdz", "blocktrades/why-i-won-t-be-compromising-with-justin-sun", "andrarchy/i-support-hive", "smooth/hive-fork-announcement-smooth-and-burnpost", "taskmaster4450/hive-to-go-live-friday-sometimes-a-step-back-is-a-step-forward", "therealwolf/hive-the-blockchain-for-web-3-0", "kingscrown/binance-will-support-hive-split-chain-bittrex-odd-kyc-popup-on-login", "drakos/moving-to-hive", "bdcommunity/bdcommunity-supports-the-hive-blockchain", "pennsif/hive-news-18-march-2020-a-new-news-service-for-a-new-chain", "donekim/fork-hive", "kennyskitchen/n0nc735sj5e", "berniesanders/i-support-the-move-from-steem", "jrcornel/steem-hive-huobi-global-also-announces-they-will-support-hive-airdrop"]
Edit: Spread the word around the world. On-chain and off-chain.
That's very correct NO TO CENSORSHIP.
I agree yet wonder, was the blacklist not something that was implemented to solve an issue on the STEEM blockchain?
In the future steemit will become a first in censored blockchain.
It looks like it is still showing up on the main page?
Hahahhaha, what a stupid guy! He still believe can do anything against us
Wow! Hive it is then... Thanks for bringing this up.
Well, this kind of thing is the last nail in the coffin for me and probably for many others. Steem's main selling point was censorship resistance and when all it has left is steemit.com with Justin censoring everything he doesn't agree with then what's the point anymore?
This is...not good
Are they fucking hard coding posts that will not show up?:DDD
I am starting my own condenser. Right now, it only shows lists of posts. I am using React-JS and Typescript. I recommend using https://www.steempeak.com. There are many. Thanks mostly for the Free RPC nodes. I have always voted for witnesses than ran public/RPC nodes.
Isn't the market crazy though? 29 cent Steem, and $1.13 Steem Dollars.
Who cares about steemit.com anyway!
More people need to know about this.
And this is why we don't want a centralized blockchain run by the CCP. In those changes is a new blacklist functionality, that literally connects to a random box in China to get an EXTRA blacklist from
The blocklist ip sits in this network range :
inetnum: 126.96.36.199 - 188.8.131.52 netname: ALISOFT descr: Aliyun Computing Co., LTD descr: 5F, Builing D, the West Lake International Plaza of S&T descr: No.391 Wen'er Road, Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China, 310099 country: CN
ALISOFT / ALIYUN = ALIBABA
This extra blacklist check means they don't even need to update condenser in the future, they can just push out new censorship mandates direct from China.
Thanks @justinsunsteemit for really proving our point, and giving #hive even more momentum and media attention!
See you all on Hive.
Just lol ... there is no other words
It's already implemented.
The censorship is on.
Looks like my post from yesterday is being censored as well now...
Another odd thing I just blogged about is that yesterday's 24 hr volume was more than the entire market cap of STEEM, and most of the buying was against KRW, so Koreans. Trying to get in on the HIVE airdrop to create mayhem on the new chain, perhaps?
So Justin is just proving the very reason why the community didn't want him in control in the first place. By Steem.. it has been lovely, but I refuse to sit and be censored, I'll censor myself thank you!
Yesterday they censored my this post regarding hive.
One day to go and the nightmare is over.
Lets get our Hive on.
What TRON is currently doing here is the best marketing campaign for Hive! See you on the bright side!
So. Much. Wow.
Of course Steemit always had the option to not display certain content in the front end, and did utilize it in the past in cases of illegal activity, extreme spam, etc.
This represents a new low by Justin Sun, blacklisting posts discussing other blockchain projects! And the code highlighted by @ausbitbank is even more damning! Without full witness control, these changes can only be implemented to the display of posts... but once Sun centralizes Steem I have no doubt we’ll see outright censorship in the form of coordinated witness servers actually removing or disallowing certain posts from the blockchain itself.
See you all tomorrow on Hive!
Everything we feared about the Steemit centralization is now already a reality.

Censorship and blockchain don't go hand-in-hand. They are exact opposites. Steemit is no better than Facebook, Twitter, or any other conventional social medium. This action proves that even that valuation is too high. Steemit is a worthless system, ran by a dictator.
Steem, however, will live on, albeit under a different name.
Welcome to Steemit... Embrace our censorship frenetic brand new policy! :-)
You know steem(it) hit bottom when these final hours before the HF are making facebook look real good and free! 😵
Here's a version of the GitHub comparison link that uses commit hashes
The comparison based on branch names could change. Commit hashes ensure content-integrity.
For us non-witnesses, is there an easy way to look up what the postid are?
export const _list_temp = [ 85272851, 85292735, 85290072, 85280316, 85290308, 85240810, 85278992, 85276721, 85288504, 85284375, 85283636, 85273231, 85287931, 85287965, 85274894, 85241321, 85294452, 85289191, 85293865, ];
I don't know if this is related to the Justin Sun hostile takeover but my account is being falsely flagged as spam by steem cleaners. I tried to reason with them but they wouldn't show me proof or listen. Steem is really becoming a shit show. Time to move onto better platforms like Uptrennd, Publish0x etc.
Justine Sun is Chinese. Chinese people migrate to US and other first world nations in west and then promote communism and socialism. So not surprised that justine sun is PRO censorship. Stop giving power to immigrant chinese like him. Simple.
@triple.aaa @zzan.witnesses @steemhunt @steem-dragon @future.witness
is this the platform that you choose to support and be a witness for?
@elipowell, it's been a month, are you still free to post? Given the circumstances I'll take silence as an answer.
I am the first to be very harsh and critical of everything that is happening.
But without a doubt, this has led me a lot for a position.
Although I still think that witnesses should change many things in the new chain.
Among them, the bots, the way of voting, the curators ... Etc, etc, etc.
It seems to me that Justin is having a disgusting attitude and this corroborates this.. I hope this can be worked on. Not like Steemit, that was unreal.
Doesn't @justinsunsteemit understand that he makes things only worse with this kind of authoritarian actions. He shows his hand as evil dictator here.
