Walking the plank to award merits
« Particularly bad posts that I noticed today.

I've opened my bag of merits, and I'm off to hunt for post to award with them. I'll start with the beginners board.

The first few are about airdrops, bounties, an infogrphic about Bitcoin Talk, merits for art and exchanges, so we'll skip over those. There was one about 2fa on a mobile, but I've already awarded a merit in that thread.

I looked at the thread "Will my thread be read by people?" just to see what it was about. It turned out to be about posting on page 100 in a mega thread. It's a sensible question, but the replies were not special ( including mine ). I might have been tempted to award a merit if the title had been more specific, but I thought it was a bit general, and it mislead the readers.

Now we are into another run of rubbish titles like "newbies' sadness", I didn't open that, even though it was in the plural. There were more of the tired old themes like "Best wallet", "What is Blockchain", "Pump and Dump",  and emojis nd images, There was one titled "Hardfork", but no question or observation about it, so I thought that would be another multi-posted topic.

Right at the bottom of the page I found a thread by DV8, a newbie with an activity of 3. He was having problems with backing up his wallet. His post was a bit long, and I didn't read all of it, but he seemed to be explaining his problem quite well, so I gave him a couple of merits. TryNinja is  a Hero, and he pitched in with a dialogue that seemed to solve his problem, so I gave him a couple of merits as well.

I looked at the second page, and that was more of the same, with threads about bounty, ETH. and non-specific apparently trivial questions.

I had a quick look in the Ivory Tower, but not much had happened there, so I looked in serious discussion. That's getting spammy these days, with threads about ICOs and trivial schoolkid questions, so I didn't bother to stay.

Meta was all about merits, and I'm a bit bored with threads about those, maybe I'll read them tomorrow. Other threads were the usual stuff about accounts being banned for plagiarism, sig campaigns, and the like.

That will do for today's run. It has been a bit better than usual. 4 merits awarded, and no ignores or reports.
