Grey List- The users who spam/plagiarize only once(so far).
All such users have been advised to correct the course, return to the path of hard work, and are asked to complete Task-3 in Newcomers' Community to develop a better understanding of content etiquette.
Note- All the Blacklisted users are generally muted in Steemit Crypto Academy forever.
We have collected all sorts of data from 6th Sept to 14th Nov 2021(Season 4) to prepare this report.
