I am not sure why are you asking questions and trying to make conversation in trust.
Because the default answer of that question is: I will be a victim without doing anything and the community should consider me not guilty. It's an answer from common sense. So, it does not matter asking there or anywhere.
Furthermore , I do not want anyone do the same mistake out of confusion like you did and don't accuse me saying that I am a big hypocrate
. My trust page is red painted (LOL) but I don't bother coz I know those red trusts are from non-DT. Also, those are out of angry mouth with no legit accusation. Anyone with a little sense can easily notice that I am not guilty for those redTrust. But your one was not the same.
No, they were not. They were abusing system from the start.
Those with bad intention they kept doing their continuous abusing but if you see my brothers one then it's not the same case. Don't you think I could send him some back if I had the bad intention where I see he did not earn any single merit. Instead of doing that, I advised him to improve his post quality a few days ago.
All these accounts which you are bashing because of merit abuse
and your brother has sent you all his merits just to test how this system works..
If you see the individuals' merit history those I have listed on the merit abusers list
, then you will notice I did try considering the early merit sending confusion period. I try not accusing them out of the thin air with not enough evidence
(few I might miss, hey I am a human after all, sometimes these networks are too deep). I always leave reference so that my justification can be proved. My goal is not bashing people, my goal is to warn them.
They are open to ask me for the removal of my redTrust and in that case I need to keep a log for me plus other members (possibly DT) that they have been warned earlier. IMO there are no other best place for the log but their own trust page with a neutral trust.
If you trust your brother(of course you do, it is your brother) why don't you trust people who sent merit to their family/friends/etc? Don't you think you should give -ve to your brother for merit abuse as well?
Trusting family/friends/etc and exchanging merits with each others are totally different, aren't it? Merit is not here for exchanging just because you know the people well, it's here to identify good posts and award it to that good posts. I knew my brother's intention so, why would I neg trust him. If his intention was bad then I would do the same like I did for all the abusers. I would redTrust him. Then I would replace the red with a neutral one to keep the log of the warning after he admit his abusing (I understand for you, it's hard to believe. I wish you knew me personally. I am man of my strong ethics). He saw a new feature and tried it out to see how it works. I am lucky that I did not send him the two sMerits back that I earned from his 4 merits or today I would had to leave the forum with great shame.
Don't worry, I removed my -ve(it is untrusted anyways so it won't affect you nor your brother in any way).
I was worried about my reputation not for the redTrust. Anyway well done.
