It accepted two choices for me. (legitimate goods and long term investment).

My Canary: I will never ask for a loan or offer escrow services. If someone does with this account, consider it compromised.

short and long term investment. Of course if I wanted to buy something like hosting, Bitcoin community has the priority.

The number of short-term speculation choices is vastly outnumbered by the other options (respectively 26.2% vs 73.8% after 42 voters). We can probably infer that the value of the BTC is not going to crash in the short-term. That is, unless more speculators start showing up.
