Once again a great summation of what is going on in the Steemsphere. Appreciate these updates of Steem News!

Thank you for your support. Glad to be able to provide a useful service.

It would be funny if Steem became the top online destination for porn, but I hope it can be much more than that.

I assume @slobberchops is the new orca. There's a man with confidence in this platform. Good for him.

Yes, congratulations to @slobbershops. Good to see another UK Orca.

Have we got any UK Whales?

When will Steemit introduce a new feature where it's users can delete their posts?

Cant you do this already?

Anything with curation or replies can't be deleted on the Steem blockchain, only edited.

~Smartsteem Curation Team

Thank you.

Wow! Nice post and so interested keep it up

"They will be burning 3% of all post rewards on 3Speak videos"
If it's not clear to anyone, that means they're taking away and deleting 3% of all money that would be paid out to creators, off the top, before all other deductions and fees etc.
It's interesting.

GJ :-)

If I would get more upvotes / recognition for the content I provide in my channel - which remained largely unnoticed - the world would be perfect, lol. Or lets call it "My Steemit-World", or Steemsheeps steeming (pile of sh*t) world ;-). But thats just minnowtalk I guess. And I know self promotion stinks, but if you would check out my channel, you would notice that it is not entirely untrue ;-) (lol, not entirely untrue, now I had to laugh about this, ehm, creation)

Resteemed 👌

Thank you.
