The difference between selfless act and propaganda is whether you make a post about it online.

Meh. If good were done who should gripe about the motivation?

It seems like a contradiction, because it seems like they're doing the things to be adored, which is not selflessly. Of course it could also be implied at just doing the right thing and getting credit for that, which would be better worded in a different way.

Yes, I agree, but I feel like the word adored implies, or at minimum gives a connotation, of more than simple affirmation. But you're correct in that it could be seen in a different way as well.

At the end of the day, it comes down to motivation and the chicken or the egg. If the desire to be adored and/or selflessly came first. But really all this is just splitting hairs.
