So, let's envision an abuse of Yours with how facebook is currently abused.
Imagine you write a detailed facebook post explaining your latest frustration about a news item and how it was inaccurate, wrong, or just plain malicious. And you make $100 from people who agree and vote on your content. That sounds great, right? That's one of many possible ideas of the ways the platform of Yours can be used.
And you might be wondering about the possible abuses of Yours. Like, let's say that CNN employs someone to make 1,000 fake accounts to vote up their content -- entirely possible -- what's the downside of that fake spam? Well, voting gives Yours.org money. So, sure, for a time it would be up there, to the benefit of Yours. Let's suppose 100,000 users take the bait and vote the article up, falsely believing it to be true.
Actually, shit: how wouldn't this be an issue?
A profitable echo-chamber?
And isn't that technically a fair use of the site?
Aren't people entitled to believing bullshit and pushing it?
What's the downside here besides entrenched opinions echoing themselves? Is there really anything immoral or unethical about that?

Free speech & free markets. Let the market decide what is true or not.
Besides, media giants like CNN traditionally collect money from advertisers. If they want to PAY money to get people to read to read their content, they probably won't survive for very long.

Its seems like a good point .. let's think a bit about good old Economics and Substitute Goods.
If it is easier and cheaper for bad actors to abuse Facebook then that will take precedent over abusing Yours.org, hence the substituting of Facebook for Yours.org.
The "psuedo-paradox" (maded this up) here is that an ultra low fee payment method like Bitcoin Cash (BCH) makes it possible to introduce the right sized "friction" to make Yours.org unattractive to Spammers or "Sybils-like" attack (but I haven research the Yours.org newtwork distance, sorry).
Just my 0 cents worth content, just putting it out there for community to scrutinize and critic, cheers.

If something like this happened, it might fracture the community into a whole bunch of Yours spin-offs (or partitioned groups in Yours); I'm sure we'd figure it out eventually, what to do
