 #1

OgNasty gave me the suggestion to make a post who "the biggest merit backscratchers" are. Merit backscratchers are defined as users who give each other the most Merit:
For example, if I sent theymos 50 merits, and he sends me 20, then you could say that we scratched each other's backs with 20 merit.

It's a new angle to look at Merit and possible Merit abuse, but before rushing to conclusions, make sure to check the merited posts. It could very well be both users made good posts and deserve the Merit. You'll probably find many Merit sources in the list, simply because they've sent a lot of Merit. Meanwhile, real Merit abusers might have used more than 2 accounts and thus a bigger circle, so they won't even show up in this list.

Update: jackg suggested to add Merit received (in green) and sent (in red) to put things into perspective.

Many WO club members just seem to "trade" merits with each other, but "It's all fun and games". Some other accounts, such as wnj4, have already been identified as connected and have received red trust. Overall I think it is small the number of accounts that have exchanged a lot of merits. I thought it would be something more common. Perhaps merit farms are very extensive and the number of merits exchanged is too small so they can stay off this radar and do not receive red trust.

Sad. It looks like I need to do some more scratching to get to the top of this list.

For older and active users it kind of makes sense. You would not expect newbies and users that are not so active on this list, would you?

No wonder I've got an itchy back. I'm nowhere to be seen on that list.

Wail! The top guys don't love me. Smiley

Maybe the fact that you have an "ass-back" is the reason. No one wants to touch one of those.

Are you fat-shaming us? It's an occupational hazard, what with sitting in a circle the whole day.

Obviously merit is in a bear market at the moment.

How did you determine who is in which column?
The highest userID comes first. That was an arbitrary choice.

You'll have to scratch ognastys back now though Grin.

Interesting and kinda odd idea. I didn't make the list, I'm guessing that's quite a good thing.

Can you do something of a value of total merit sent to that user/total merit sent overall and add those for each side to see what we get? That might be more interesting... Might be helpful in spotting account farming too...

I don’t play these sorts of games.



Anybody want to count appearances or add up totals on the list and see who the biggest abusers are?

Interesting.  Had I wondered about what such a list would look like before this thread got created, I would have predicted much different results.  I don't even recognize most of the members who are scratching each others' backs, which makes me think that there's a lot of possible merit abuse happening with accounts that had a lot of airdropped sMerits, but that's just my speculation. 

A lot of shitposters tend to accuse well-known senior members of circle jerking and sending merits back and forth to each other, and other forms of merit abuse, but from what I see here that's not the case--or at least that it's not the huge problem that the shitposters make it out to be.

If he's the one who requested this data, I'd be curious to know what he thought the results might show.

I wouldn't go as far as calling them "abusers". I've not run the numbers, but I'd wager suchmoon would be number one simply by virtue of having given out almost 10k merits. Pretty much everyone who has ever given suchmoon more than 18 merit will appear on that list.
