Some of our users decided it would be a great idea to form upvoting groups (otherwise known as "upvoting rings"), where members upvote each other in exchange for upvotes by other members.
Dear upvoting group participants, let me tell you this: you are spamming read.cash, you are taking our fund money dishonestly and therefore you will be punished, unless you stop right now.
You are spamming because you upvote content based on random group participation, not because the content is good. So, bad content rises to the top and makes read.cash look bad. We will not pay for this behaviour.
Unless you stop now - you will see your point rate decreased proportionally to the number of participants in your group. If your group is 20 members you might see your personalized point rate decrease 20 times (so $2.00 yesterday, $2.00 today, then $0.10 for the next month or more even after you stop your participation).
If you continue, don't come begging to our email for increased rate, because it will be algorithm punishing you, not we, we won't do anything about it.
The same goes for people creating accounts to upvote themselves - you will see your point rate decreased proportionally to number of fake accounts upvoting you.
If you want your rate to stay full - upvote only content that you like, not content for which you've been promised something.
You have been warned.
There will be no future warnings.
The change will come into effect sometime in the following 1-3 weeks. All upvoting groups activity before 16 Jun 2020 23:59 London time will be excluded. So, seriously, stop now.
