High Quality Content or an advertisement tabloid?

I am watching the trending page at steemit…

Hey, we managed to fire out all of those bid-bod abusers!!!

That’s really great!

More steem returning to the reward pool to be used on high quality posts!!!

But wait, is it what I see now what we all expect as a high quality content?

From top to bottom:

This is what I see now at the trending page…

Huge eSteem iOS 2.2 update now available to Apple users , Ok, great, I am very happy with this new and I am using it unstoppably since yesterday…thanks @esteem !

Compact Broadcast Node: Low Cost Infrastructure to support Keychain, Splinterlands, Steem Engine  , excellent for… developers?

Bitcoin Prediction – Price TARGET Discussed | Cryptocurrency Technical Analysis | Week 1,  , Not bad this video about trading… I like it…perhaps a little bit overpaid I would say

Can a non-technical, non commercial project be supported on Steem? The Steem ecoVillage  … Great! More Ideas, more developments… I love the message about “Create An Off-Grid Community Based on the Gift Economy!”… I will read it carefully when I will have some spare part…

The Bismuth Governance Shift, Part 2 … what the heck is…?! buuff…too much for me, sorry, no opinion here…

The First Blockchain Shooting Game is Here! … this is funny, a good idea of an ETH blockchain-based game … the good thing here is that the author burned some SBD to be on the trending page in order to promote this post and decided to refuse rewards, which is intelligent under the point of view of an advertisement use-case…

BISMUTH CHESS 960 Tournament – Friday, 6th 19:00 UTC … another advertisement about a Chess tournament… just a few lines…poor content in… I would say it is also overpaid due to bid-bots use…

Congratulations to the Winner of the Steem Fest ticket sponsored by Blocktrades and Steem  … 90 USD to announce the winner of the steem Fest ticket sponsored by blocktrades… buufff, is this high quality? This is an example of…?

OCD Content Creator Onboarding Program (Apply here) … same here?

BUZZi Top Creator / Top Posts Rewards Event… 89 STU


Advertisement, rear advertisement rear advertisement…. 8 out of the 10 top trending posts are advertisements… I had to scroll down a few times in order to see something interesting and attractive, opinion posts, steem related topics… not bad, not bad…

Today I did not find anything downvotable on top of the trending page but either I have not seen anything remarkable under what I expect to be considered as a High Quality content on top…

If a newby/investor comes and tries to check in TRENDING what do you think he will do after? … I might be wrong but I think that most likely he will close the tab and open the bloody FACEBOOK again…

Fortunately I have my own “feed” and the tribes, in particular, STEEMLEO and SPORTSTALK and, sometimes also PHOTOSTREEM and LIFESTYLE… there I can find the topics I like more and, if I am lazy I can enjoy some nice pics and provide some BEER tokens to the people I engage with…

Yes man, I am able to consider one PIC a high quality content post if I like it and it invites me to interact with the creator.

We don’t only need Master Degree steemians for any speciality to post on the steem and share ideas, opinions, feelings, find solutions, help and ask for help… For me, besides the content, QUALITY means also ENGAGEMENT and I am not sure that now this property is better promoted…

Perhaps, we have to find another TRENDING filter now… one for creators and another for advertisers…
