The scammers (think they) are getting smarter: Someone hopes to steal 10 Dash from the DAO Treasury with a trick question
Another random nobody with a new username crops up and asks [whether Fernando Gutierrez should remain Dash Core CMO.](https://www.dashcentral.org/p/fernando-cmo) The question is deliberately structured in a way as to trick MNOs to vote yes, since Fernando is well respected within the community. If the proposal passes the proposal owner receives a one time payment of 15 Dash.
And right there is the fatal flaw of this failed trick: It's well established practice of our 4 year old Dash DAO that **HONEST** governance proposals **never** seek any profit when asking their question to the community. The moment someone asks for more than 5 Dash (to reimburse themself on the proposal fee) it can no longer be regarded a governance question but a mere **funding proposal**.
The question asked becomes completely irrelevant.
All the MNOs vote on from that moment on is whether to give that person (in this case a net 10) Dash or not. Nothing else.
Nobody is instructed to do anything from this proposal no matter the outcome as the PO seeks to *enrich themself personally* **through the community's approval of another individual.**
I know you're reading this "realist", but there's nothing realistic about believing we'll blindly trust you to pay back funds you're asking for for no legitimate reason whatsoever.
Just to clarify my point here: This is not about me being stingy about 10 Dash. This is about:
a) sending a signal and
b) more importantly saving 15 Dash for a proposal owner **who actually needs and deserves this money.** Especially considering our small time 3rd world POs.
