I’M ABOUT TO TURN FIVE BUT AM I DODGY?

It’s nearly my fifth birthday on the blockchain, but sometimes I get accused of being dodgy. I’m actually a bit of a simple punter and any geek worth his salt could work out just about bloody everything about me, down to my name and address. With the benefit of hindsight I wish I was more […]

FLING ALL YOUR MONEY AT ME IMMEDIATELY

This account has a bit of history on Steemit and I’ve had a few run ins with stuck up little wankers. Back in August 2016 I started going hard out on Steemit and did a lot of posting. On this account I’ve always had a take no prisoners and suck no dicks attitude, and sometimes […]

FOR ALL THE OLD TIMERS

WHY ARE PEOPLE SO SCARED TO UTTER THE WORDS STEEM OR STEEMIT ON HIVE? Here are a few memories from “the other blockchain” “that broken old site” and “the very bad place owned by commies” https://peakd.com/steemit/@sift666/for-all-the-old-timers

TAKING A HUGE GAMBLE ON HIVE

Back in August 2016 I started out on Steemit as @sift666 because some prick had already taken the name @sift so I added 666 on the end hoping to sound all heavy and satanic, but it was like arriving first at a party and having nobody to talk to, and then being asked to go […]

MY MOST CONTROVERSIAL POST EVER

There was a time on Steemit (August 2017 to be exact), when the site was inundated with fake introduce yourself posts by scammers hoping to make a few dollars. There were a lot of numpties with more Steem Power than brain cells who were upvoting these posts in order to “onboard new users” (sound familiar?) […]

IT’S BEYOND OUR CONTROL sift666 (65)in #steemit • 4 years ago “Whatever is going to happen will happen, whether we worry or not” – is an […]

FOUR YEARS AGO I WAS JUST A CRAZY “CONSPIRACY” THEORIST

This was one of the first posts I did on Steemit, back in August 2016. It got a massive seven votes and a payout of big fat ZERO. But I like this post, and this seems like a good time to repost it on Hive. It was originally posted here: https://steemit.com/conspiracies/@sift666/some-complete-bollocks-that-believers-have-fallen-for-hook-line-and-sinker Some complete bollocks that […]

The invention of the performance tampon

THROBBING GRISTLE REVISITED Back in 1975 a band was formed in England that would change the face of music. I’m not talking here about The Sex Pistols or The Clash. I mean Throbbing Gristle. http://crackmagazine.net/2016/04/throbbing-gristle-back-catalogue-to-be-repressed-on-vinyl/ They didn’t invent punk, heavy metal, or ska. They invented performance tampon. (officially they are credited with inventing Industrial Music, […]

UNCENSORED ALTERNATIVES TO FACEBOOK

Like many people who are trying to share content online but having it censored, I have a long history of checking out different social media platforms. I’ve set up accounts on a bunch of platforms and tried them out. Some I liked, and some I didn’t. Here are my thoughts on some platforms. Although I’d […]
