Title: New posting bot
Post by: Shogen on August 27, 2015, 03:14:48 AM
In the past, I have seen many bots copying and pasting old post in the same thread, but just now I found one copying old post from one thread and pasting it in a different thread. I would have never noticed it, if the post being copied is not mine.



Account: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=372009

My strategy is simple: Set a stop-loss target and a stop-gain target before playing and stop immediately when I hit the target.
It won't help me beat the house, but it guarantee I won't lose more than I should.

Yup, some people will not like being responsible. It's too stressful to keep track of all your wealth, do a lot of backups, and hope your house doesn't burn or you don't get stolen. Thats why some people like banks and trust them more than what they trust themselves.

Unless bitcoin goes mainstream we still need banks to process all the fiat transactions, provide loans and stuff. And the whole thing actually revolves around debt and these are what keeps banks alive. Until then there is no harm if btc exist alongside fiat.

IMO it was pasted by the people, who need to locate the related thread and paste related reply to the specific topic! The bot cannot do it otherwise it randomly pastes replies to random topic which will lead to off topic replies and get banned.

Bots can appear pretty smart and look for keywords to make posts, but whether it is a bot or not is irrelevant as he's copying them either way. There were some bots a long time ago that took several lines of posts from different uses and combined them into one and weirdly they made sense and you wouldn't've really noticed had you not seen earlier posts in the thread.

A quick look confirms that it is this account's MO.
What's to be done? Tell Bitmixer and get his sig payments stopped? Nuke? Neg trust?

The curse of signature campaigns strikes again.

They usually get a permaban once they're found doing this. Usually there's more than just one but BadBear will be able to figure that out.

What a strategy to have a constructive post copying the same post by other members. There should be a punishment to these user.

But I think, for me getting some several lines from others and combined them is fine as long as it make sense and not off topic. Atleast they made a little effort. But copying the same post and just pasting it which they didn't made any effort have a penalty. Just my 20cents (This is only my opinion, of course im not doing it)

What's the status of those users caught asking a question which has been answered two posts above?
Is there any action taken against them, or do we just have to put up with it because they're in a signature campaign?

Permaban.

I noticed alone bird (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=547587) copy-pasting entire posts in this (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=8580.0) thread and this (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=991257.0) thread. I reported these posts and these posts have been deleted by moderators.

However, the user is still active and copying entire posts.

I would like to see some  organization and order within the development staff of bitcoin, and i think it would be insanely beneficial for
some sort of promotion department to exist.

This guy seems to be repeating himself, a lot..

depends if you have the balls to bet your coins
and the risk you gotta take

Depnds on the luck you have :)
and you have the balls to bet your coins

depends if your a casual gambler or an addict like other
and just remember gamble what you can afford to lose

i think its not wrong if you can control it or limit yourself to what you are doing as long
as don't get addicted and dont lose what you can afford

Post by: botany on September 13, 2015, 01:49:28 AM
I reported the posts of this user a couple of days back, but no action has been taken (Marked bad?). He just seems to be spamming by repeating himself.

no I never had been got 1bitcoin till now but I am egerly waiting to see a whole bitcoin in my little wallet or you can say a bitcoin wallet..and I have herd some quick ways to get bitcoins faster

no..but oftenly i reached very close to it I have 0.7btc in the cold storage and no active loans :D I will soon able to grap 1bitcoin and then I will see a whole bitcoin in my little technical wallet

no I don't have 1 Bitcoin till now..but since i am sr.member now so I will now make atleast 0.5btc from my weekly savings..hope someday I will able to save upto 1 whole bitcoin in my lovely wallet

sad to say but I don't have thay big 1 btc in my wallet..the highest I have is 0.99btc  ;D i know that's 1btc but not approx..well I have now at the present stage only 0.125btc in mah wallet


The worst part is, he definitely did have 1 BTC at one point of time, because he sold it here (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1135179.msg11972188#msg11972188). So the above posts are definitely spammy.

I am not really sure if this is a very smart bot, or just a lazy man copying others' posts. Whichever case it is, it is against the forum rules.



If it's ever to go relatively mainstream then the price must rise by orders of magnitude for it to be usable by a significant number of people.

The last few months have been an amazing time to buy in. 12-18 months ago it still would've seemed like it could die at any moment. Fast forward to today and it's being backed by some serious investment, probably tens of thousands of extremely clever people and it's being discussed at the highest levels.

Despite all this, very few people in the world have any or truly understand what it is yet. That's a dreamlike combination for future growth but it will take a few years yet.

Right now OP, you are one in 21 million. That is fantastic, but you can still improve. Get to 2.1 BTC, become one in 10 million. Once you get there, get 7 BTC - one in 3 million, then hit the big 21 BTC... and be one in a million. You can continue on from there, but for most of us, being one in a million in regards to BTC is a fantastic benchmark.

Price is already going back up.  The litmus test of whether you've invested too much is if you panic when price drops.  Invest only what you're willing to lose and stick with it the whole way through or until your exit strategy kicks in. I hate to say it but this is a game of people making logical trading decisions outsmarting people making emotional based decisions who end up losing out much like the stock market.

Another option is by trading but that carries significant. Unless you know what you are doing and having experience, the best way is still providing service and participate in signature campaigns

Newbie gambler = impulsive

Aint going to recommend any gambling site. What I can share to you is an advice to be a responsible gambler. Never gamble more than what you cant afford to lose. If you were in a profit, you must know when to stop. Dont be greedy mate. And if you were loosing, never chase what you lose. You'll end up lossing more.

Goodluck!!!

I'm not terribly surprised and not terribly worried. I think the CFTC has a very weak case here and it's a very creative reinterpretation of what the word commodity means. The ruling will be challenged and judges will apply common sense and decide it to be a currency as happened in the Silk Road case

Found another real smart bot or maybe a real lazy person. You see what it/he does? It/he found two different posts in the thread, take a line from each and then combined them, and finally changed the "cant" to "can" probably to make it less noticeable with google search.

You cant make profits from faucetbox,it is a faucet afterall i mean this is not 2010and we dont get 2-5 bitcoins from faucets so why wont people offer any service for coins rather tahn fauceting
freebitco.in is biggest faucet in the bitcoin world
and he make more btc/month

I think you can get more bitcoin if you can hardwork to it  ;)

we can make profits from faucetbox, it is a faucet afterall.,

can get more bitcoin if do hardwork to it


More obvious examples of copy and paste:

Casinos love martingale players. It's also a myth that minimums and maximum bets are there to prevent Martingale. Minimums are there because casinos consider bets that are too small to be a waste of time

Minimums are there because casinos consider bets that are too small to be a waste of time considering overhead, and maximum bets are there because the variance is too high for the casino to handle.


i didnt tried much but was an interesting giveaway from unibtc...nice creativity out there man.
hope i win the next one...

Also, I was under the impression that betting twice on the same thing doesn't count, but it is being counted. not sure. ???

I had acccdentally sent a wrong amount to the wrong address, and had to cancel out by betting proportionately on the other two sides. This caused my ROI to drop. Well, I didn't lose much, so I am fine. :)

You were right in your assessment Cyrus, that he was testing the waters. Curious to know, how many strikes does one get before the ban hammer comes out? This account wasn't banned after the previous report.

Pakistan successfully defend 136 and in the process, record their eight T20 win against Zimbabwe in eight attempts. But, Zimbabwe should be proud of their performance. They were exceptional for large chunks of the game but lost the important moments. Pakistan can be very grateful to Imad Wasim's all-round performance and the youngsters have come through for Pakistan. Some iffy shots from the batsmen in the chase and in hindsight, were the turning points of the game.

Pakistan go 1-0 up in the two-match series.

Yes, he is different as only a few of his posts seem to be copied.
The previous copied post (here (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1163169.msg12477793#msg12477793)) was not related to cricket.

This (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=382463) user continues where he left off, after a 2-week ban.

that's a intresting qurstion.I have invited and taught about 60-70friends and 5females till now but 20% of them just ignored it because they found it too tough to work on so I didn't said them anything

I recommended bitcoin to about 60-70peoples till now abd I just tought them what it is and I just moved on after they are able to earn some thing hope I have helped many peoples and I didnt sayed anyone to do anything which can result in bad i just told every one what it can cause them

I have recommended bitcoin to 100-200friends and 90% of them has accepted this and are earning from this :) I have gifted 0.001btc each..and maybe somebody had remembered that

i am using btc from 2010 and yes it was a very long journey till now but i am earning a good amount now..so as i am earning a good amount in btc so i can show this to my friends that what and how i am earning..i explained about 40-50peoples about this till now and i have a group on whatsapp too...i have payed everyone 0.001btc so everybody can try this stuff without waiting for the money..and 7-8peoples loved to use it and rest of peoples are still learning

maybe i have expained it 100times till now to 80% of my friends but i got the expected results as because i am from india so nobody belive in me even after shown them prove but then also they are not understanding thing...maybe i ammuch intelligent or they are much stupid or beggner for this

Account 1: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=556087

I play local lottery everyday, where I live there are so many different type of lotteries and mainly I have chosen 2 and I bet on them everyday, the prize structure is different for how many numbers you get right and although it may look like it's all based on luck, which I think is right to certain extent but if you keep records and look into them you'll sometimes find patterns which gets repeated and it's not easy because there are so many variations of it but if you spend a little time on it you'll be able to get sure shots at-least 4-5 times in a week, which is enough to make a profit. I have been playing it for a long time now and it may sound like a lie but I have made a good profit from it.

Actually it's wreck my life, i'm losing so many bitcoins and real money. And now i can't continue my college because my money all gone. I'm trying to stop gambling but it's really so hard, always someday i gambling when i promise myself to not gambling anymore.  :'(

Seems fairly slow here as well, had the same slowdown last night before it picked up.

Perhaps the site uses send many to cut down on transaction spam ?

I really like the site, it generates shit loads of transactions for the btc network and I assume/hope all the players are paying transaction fee's.
Fun game for a lottery, honest drawing, low house edge and getting to pick your own odds (max variance is the best tactic when playing a game that is inherently -EV). I never play real lotteries because of all the very low prices I don't want to win (next to the negative EV thing which would stop me from playing more than once a year even with max variance).

You should increase your price pool though, at 65k multiplier you are only allowed to wager 0.0013 BTC lol.

You probably should do it on a first come first served basis, just distribute shares based on users ranks or activity points. Make sure to disallow newbie accounts created after today or if you want you could require at least junior member status for participation.
It's always a good idea to get coins out in as many hands as possible in the beginning, especially for smaller projects. People are more likely to spread the news and tweet about a coin if they already have some. Also it guarantees at least some activity if ever you get your coin on an exchange  :) Good luck!

It is possible if you gamble in sports and always ' analyse ' corectly and always win.
For the other casino or dice games, there is no point playing because you will lose in the long run.

loading is really slow when visiting 1st time but then speed should be fine and some user confirmed it.
we are working to solve this problem and thanks for your feedback.

regarding faucet I hope that users will accept our opinion. but to be frank we didnt yet implemented the tip option but we will do and will give users some satoshis to try the site. our opinion is that no user needs every 5 minutes 2 bits to test a site or the games

I also like most of rules by Directbet but have one problem and this happen many time with me I bet and as I send payment and looking for confirming bet odds going very badly down why even some time happen event is not started yet why this difference

The design of the site had me immidiatly, so I signed up. And as usual with these kind of things I get too excited and started deposit. To grow the mines substantially now, I must deposit way too much. But for five minutes it was fun :)

Your site looking fresh with unique wooden layout and that is good addition in gambling site with interesting betting concept, your site is still payout table for each balls and how much win chance each ball has, i think some kind of giveaway promo would be better to test this new site.

We have already confirmed your withdrawal and you will receive your money soon. As you see this was much faster than the previous time you won. We gave you the money on the second day. Good Luck in the future. We are fair casino and we always give out the money if it has been won fairly, regardless of the quantity of that money.

Signature campaigns are the best way to earn some Bitcoin. Especially if you are Jr. Member or Full Member which has a high payout rate. Don't lose time with faucets. They give you very low BTC  :D

This would be the best way to earn Bitcoins: Get a job and take out 10% of your earnings and spent them on Bitcoin. It always works for me  ;D

I think the most profitable way to earn Bitcoins is to make yourself a casino/gambling site and watch the bits roll in to your wallet  ;D

Maybe the best way to earn Bitcoins is to play games. I've seen that you could play games such as Minecraft, among many others and earn some Bitcoins. Is it really worth to spend time playing these games to earn some coins?  ::)

The best way to earn Bitcoins is to build your own mining rig and set up 6 graphics cards on it to mine alt coins. You would reach ROI in no time  ::)

Signature campaign has always been the most rewarding way to earn a decent amount of Bitcoins. The only you would need to do is to invest your time to make quality posts and you'll be earning good profits. Trading is also a great way to earn Bitcoins, but you need to have experience in doing such task.  :D

This might not be the best way to earn Bitcoins, but it sure is fun. That includes playing games Minecraft, Bitcoin Hopper and Bitcoin Flapper. They're hours of fun and at the same time you're earning a couple of satoshis in your spare time  ;D

I would just make a casino/gambling site and earn Bitcoins. It could probably be the best way to earn them since the house always wins.  ;D

I would bet that evander42 (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=555873) is another alt, although there is no blockchain evidence.

I think there must be a mutual understanding between people who use the exchange to buy/trade coins and people who run the exchange. There seems to be little understanding on the user side, mainly in the fact that running an exchange also incurs costs for maintaining wallets for any given coin and is only profitable for the exchange as long as there is some volume in the given coin. On the other hand, the exchange should also understand that the users cannot carry all the risk of buying/trading available coins and should be allowed a smooth way out (reasonable time) for the coins that are being de-listed. I think having 7 days plus email notification would do the trick - even if someone is on holidays and gets such an email - he/she may respond that the planned return is in next x days, asking for an individual extension until then. That shouldn't be a big deal for the exchange, provided users won't abuse it much.

Yeah, it should be easy to spot someone copying your posts, seeing as about every sixth one you make is an update in "Re: Post your Total time logged into Bitcointalk" or "Re: Last Drink You drank."
 
Does the YoBit bot pay for posts in Off Topic, by any chance? (A. Yes)
Are variations on "7 days 4 hours 9 minutes" and "water" considered constructive posting by the YoBit bot? (A. Probably.)

When posts are that worthless, does it matter whether they are copied or original?
Why is one type of bot behaviour that results in more spam acceptable and the other not?

Another example of blatant copy-paste.


Example 1

Save your money. Save as much money as you possibly can. Every penny you can. Instead of coffee, drink water. Instead of going to McDonald’s, eat mac and cheese. Cut up your credit cards. If you use a credit card, you don’t want to be rich. The first step to getting rich, requires discipline. If you really want to be rich, you need to find the discipline, can you?”

Example 2

Bitcoin payments are easier to make than debit or credit
card purchases, and can be received without a merchant
account. Payments are made from a wallet application,
either on your computer or smartphone, by entering the
recipient's address, the payment amount, and pressing
send. To make it easier to enter a recipient's address, many
wallets can obtain the address by scanning a QR code or
touching two phones together with NFC technology.
thats all are purpose of bitcoin

Example 3
One big way to save money is to drastically cut down on the amount of television you watch. There are a lot of financial benefits to this, less exposure to spending inducing ads, a lower electric bill and perhaps a lower cable bill if you downgrade your subscription more time to focus on other things in life — such as a side business — and so on.

Example 4

What I think is future of bitcoin looks pretty bleak. There are some very big scaling issues. The distributed nature is a problem because every bitcoin node needs to know about every transaction that is ever made. Right now the bitcoin network can only handle around 7 transactions per second globally (this is what I know) and its not clear how these limitations could be lifted. Just increasing the transaction limit would lead to a huge blowup in the bandwidth and disk space requirements for maintaining a bitcoin node. This will surely make it very hard for bitcoin to reach grow bigger scale.

Example 5
Gold is a best asset which cannot be printed at will. As such it protects against inflation and currency devaluations. In turbulent times gold is resilient. The amount of available gold is constrained and cannot be expanded. Demand for gold is always continue to grow and it has much stable investment compared to bitcoin so I choose gold

Quote
Gold is a tangible asset which cannot be printed at will. As such, it protects against inflation and currency devaluations. For example, in 1971, a family in the US could buy a house with US$25,000. Today, US$25,000 is not enough for a mortgage deposit. By contrast, 700 ounces of gold (the equivalent of US$25,000 in the 1970s) can buy a US$1 million property today. A growing body of research has shown that having a portion of savings in gold can improve purchasing power over the long term, especially as the real value of most major currencies declines.

In turbulent times, gold is resilient. The amount of available gold is constrained and cannot be expanded at will, as is the case for fiat currencies through expansionary monetary policies – especially in times of financial and economic crisis.

Here are some examples:

You forgot to take into account that whoever bought at the higher price and hasnt sold yet even after BTC is taking a deep crash means that the person believe that BTC will be 4-5 figures and that is the reason that he is holding.
Having a higher price for now isnt feasible, the last waves happened because of the Greece + chinese stockmarket hype and if there isnt any of this hype, there wont be a solid waves though.

Saving your money isnt a form of investment because the interest earned is pretty much low, even if you compound them over for a year period then you will get the interest rate will be lower than the yearly inflation rate .
That means you are losing money each time you save them up, however atleast you are exposing your funds to a smaller risk . On the other hand there is always a safe deposits which could be consider as a form of investment, kinda combination of both saving and investing

Whoever that 15 people is, isnt a guarantee that Stunna might think that they are trustworthy enough to handle the support service.

Another one!

Example 1
I think one can easily make money online for living and without any site is from FIVERR. You need to be creative to provide some unique services in fiverr. If you study the top sellers in fiverr they have made thousands of dollars every month just sitting at home. Now they have opened up some services like video creation services for selling at higher prices not for just $5. So if your really serious in making money online then the best place for you to start is fiverr.

Well actually it's overvalued due to manipulation and jewelry. If people did not like gold jewelry it would start going down. I guess one of the real usages are in electronics.
I'd actually buy more Bitcoin that gold if I was investing. I'd buy both, but Bitcoin has potential to rise much higher than gold does.

I think most wives find out everything their husbands get up to. Using Bitcoin won't stop them discovering if you use porn and when they discover it they will probably confiscate all your Bitcoins as a punishment. Most wives have kids, and kids often know more about computers than professional programmers. They will get their kids to do their dirty work for them.

How to Get Rich in 3 (Really Difficult) Steps
Step 1: Ignore Your Mother
Parents around the world typically encourage their kids to get educated so they can get a "good job," and perhaps become a doctor or lawyer, although neither tends to be a path to significant wealth. High-paying professions provide an excellent income stream, but two insidious forces undermine the professional's ability to create significant wealth: tax and spending.
.....

Totalitarianism is not an inappropriate term, not simply because the financial realm holds such a great deal of wealth and power. The term was coined by the Italian Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini to praise the system he created where the ruling ideology dominated every aspect of citizens' lives. Not only did the fascist state ruthlessly and autocratically dominate the economy and politics, it also sought to transform social life and the culture of the nation to become a total way of life. While there is no pompous fascist figurehead, we can see the tremendous power of the financial sector as a form of disorganized or ad-hoc totalitarianism where financial power and modes of thinking increasingly stain the social fabric. And like the totalitarianisms of old, the "financialization" of life is ultimately directed by and benefits a tiny minority, at the expense of everyone else.

The case to eliminate paper money!
Modern financial markets are behaviourally and structurally different to anything that was previously conceptualised.  It would have seemed impossible previously to assert that central banks would ever need to take interest rates below zero, but we exist at a time where that is possible and many argue necessary.  “Paying a negative interest rate on currency, or on electronic reserves at the central bank, may seem barbaric to some…” writes Rogoff, “But it is arguably no more barbaric than inflation, which similarly reduces the real purchasing power of currency.”   With any paper money in circulation, and no deflation wiggle-room, it becomes close to impossible for bank rates to (in reality) breach zero.

Satoshi Nakamoto, the person who created the digital currency Bitcoin, is our person of the year. 

Don't laugh.

Although to this day no one knows who Satoshi Nakamoto is (or are — for the latest theories check out Chart Girl's running chart) Bitcoin evangelists make the case that his true identity doesn't matter: what he's created is changing the world.

It's an assertion you hear a lot in the arts world too: you should know the man (or men, or woman — there's nothing to suggest Satoshi couldn't be one) by their works, not their biography.

This is a convincing argument.

Yes. I've been nuking them slowly this morning although my time is very limited ATM. Just make sure that you report on sight and they should be dealt with swiftly.

You can use the report button for the typical case, no need to PM anyone.

While going through https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=635960.200 I found his post , same as codishmumu's  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=635960.msg12596719#msg12596719 just below codishmumu's post, exact to the word, I think other of his posts might be botted or copy pasted as well.
Even if they are not , he is just a yobit spammer spamming local , games and rounds and off-topic boards.

Another user, whose posts I have reported earlier

Example 1

i agree with this.
I still believe that the next World War will be between the ISIS and the Western nations. Leaders of Russia and the United States are not that stupid to fight against each other. Even if they fight against each other.
ISIS is now the major of violenece and will make WW3 more atractive.

If you think that his first sentence appears to have been cut off mid-way, it is because it has been copied from the below post

I still believe that the next World War will be between the ISIS and the Western nations. Leaders of Russia and the United States are not that stupid to fight against each other. Even if they fight against each other, it will be done using proxies. For example, the Americans will support Islamist rebels inside Russia and in return Russia will arm rebel groups in the Middle East.

Example 2
this!

Bitcoin price projections for 2016

The projections for this year have been somewhat realistic following the previous year’s price fluctuations. At the time, the possibility of one Bitcoin being worth $1 million was not considered impossible, but now more than 60 percent of the community believe this is unrealistic.
WedbushAmerican securities firm Wedbush recently released a report speculating about the Bitcoin price in 2016. The report claimed that due to cryptocurrency’s potential to cut costs, its demand and use is increasing in the e-commerce, remittance and micropayments industries.
The report predicts that, in future years, Bitcoin will be able to cut down online payment fees from three to eight percent to less than 0.5 percent, while also reducing the cost of remittances from five to 10 percent to less than one percent.
Wedbush estimates that the Bitcoin price will hover around 400 dollars in 2016. The major reasoning behind their claim is the belief in Bitcoin’s ability to take over financial payments such as remittances and online payments.
The company speculates that by 2025 Bitcoin will amount to 10 percent of all online payments, 20 percent of the remittance market and 20 percent of the micropayments market. They concluded that the Bitcoin network will account for almost $596 billion in the financial market.

Example 3
tell them about bitcoin is ease to use.
Bitcoin is a great alternative because of the ease of use, ease of storage, security of storage,and it's also the only thing in the world you can send halfway around the world in less time than it takes to snap your fingers, and for free.

@maokoto, pretty much so. For example, I was checking the EPL thread just now and found a new post mentioning Everton vs Chelsea. I have been betting on EPL every week, so I know the match was played long time ago and the post is likely a copy-and-paste. I just need to copy a section of that post and check it on google, and I find where it came from.





It was really superb game played by Everton with scoring 2 goals  within 6 min of gap , which made mad to chelsea players and they started searching for goals got succedd with 1 goals, with scoring lot of corners,

I think chelsea will come back in game, and if anyone had betted on HT/FT (Everton / chelsea) he is lucky today if chelsea bounce back in second half and win the match.

Life now without technology is probably a death wish.
Humans have strayed too far from eat, sleep and survive, not that that is bad, but realistically we rely on other humans to give us food to eat, get us to hospital to survive and a few underpaid asians making memory foam to sleep.

It is possible that either BadBear or theymos could lift the ban in the future so I would suggest leaving the negative trust up. Plus him not receiving payout isn't exactly voluntary on his part.

There's that and also the profile could be linked to others in the future so feedback should remain. It could help identify scammers or stop their scams so it's best to leave it be imo.

People who sold got lucky because the prices and payments kept going down. Had there been anothere hashlet hype or bitcoin pump they would be the losers.
It's a gamble, you never know what the day will bring. Maybe tomorrow bitcoin reaches $400 or drops to $300. Maybe paycoin gets some media attention and skyrockets, I wish them all the best.

You can also always seek professional help, but I guess that is not the answer you are looking for.

I don't want to sound ungrateful or anything as you're doing excellent work, however it might be better if you sent a PM directly to grue or hilarious. That way it would be easier to get their attention and would reduce unnecessary cluttering by posting (2/3 accounts at a time). It's just a suggestion which you are free to ignore. Keep up the great work.

Never mind then. If hilarious prefer it this way (unlike me) then continue doing so. Again, keep up the great work.

I usually post about copy-pasters because it is very difficult to get the point across through a single report (due to space constraint). Didn't think about PMs.

Will try to reduce clutter, at least by hiding the actual posts.
Apparently the double bot campaign is turning into a magnet for copy-pasters.

Example 1
There should be no increase to the block size limit and the block size limit of 8 mb is a good thing, best thing for everybody involved would be for the proposed changes to be simply dropped and Bitcoin developers to get on with making proper technical solutions rather than hacky patches, current proposals for raising the block size are reckless, unnecessary, and potentially disastrous.

Example 2
Bitcoin transactions are sent from and to electronic bitcoin wallets like Blockchain, other in market and are digitally signed for security.

Example 3
If you are just getting into Bitcoins and started by installing the Bitcoin wallet on your computer you may notice that the synchronization process with the Bitcoin network is taking up quite some time. This is due to the very large blockchain that has been generated so far and it will continue to grow even bigger, so besides more than 10 Gigabytes of space you need to be ready to wait a bit. There is however a clever solution that might speed thing up, you can download a file to help you import most of the blockchain locally much faster and then synchronize with the rest of the network in no time.

Trump is a celebrity with a built-in fan base, but it is unclear how strong his support will remain once he is forced to answer serious questions like a serious candidate and how many of his current supporters will defect once they learn more about other candidates in the race, all of whom presently have lower name recognition in these early stages of the 2016 campaign.  Further, Trump is currently riding a wave based on his skillful tapping into populist anger at Washington, but even putting aside his qualifications for office, he's not particularly conservative, so the odds of him winning over primary voters (who tend to want "real" conservative candidates) is slim.  And finally, there is a large segment of the population, including many Republicans, who will never vote for Trump under any circumstances.  Trump likely has a larger built-in opposition than any other current candidate for president, Hillary Clinton and self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders included.

Example 2

To use gambling as a means to earn a living.
Not everybody can do this, but a minority can. These are the professional gamblers. Professional gamblers literally gamble for a living. How is that possible, you say? How can you make money from a gamble? Well, what these gamblers do is they cut the gaming part out of the games they play as much as possible. Games of skill which bring positive results - video poker, poker, blackjack, craps - are what the pros like to play. When you gamble in this way, you are not really gambling like ordinary folks do. You're playing for money. Actually, it's a very cool job if you ask them!

Example 3

savings, you need to know your goals to decide if you should invest. Specifically, you need to know which of your goals are short-term, and which are long-term.
Short-term goals are things you plan to do within the next five years
Medium-term goals are things you plan to do within the next 5-10 years
Longer-term goals are ones where you’re won’t need the money for ten years or more
For your short-term goals, the rule is to save into cash deposits. The stock market may go up or down in the short term and if you invest for less than five years you might well make a loss.
For longer-term goals, it’s often best to invest because inflation can seriously affect the value of cash savings over the medium and long term. The stock market tends to do better than cash over time. The longer you can leave your money, the more chance you have of making a profit.
For the medium term, cash deposits may sometimes be the best answer, but it depends on how much inflation risk you are willing to take, and whether you need a certain sum on a certain date.
Investing money is better than saving but it all depends on your goal and your need for that money.

Question: Why is this user still active and posting?  ???
Aren't 3 instances sufficient ground for a perma-ban?
One or two instances may be excused (I wouldn't even do that), but if there are 3 instances, then the user is definitely trying to spam and get away.

They usually get a permaban once they're found doing this. Usually there's more than just one but BadBear will be able to figure that out.

Yeah. Some of these bots are really annoying. But you see them for a couple of minutes before they get banned anyway.

Post by: botany on December 27, 2015, 05:00:22 PM
It is disheartening to see blatant copy-pasters like Ayoko and BigBoy89 get away with spam.  :(

Nevertheless, here is another one.

Example 1
If Bitcoin became global currency, it would necessarily limit what bankers and govt could do. It would be much, much more difficult for govt to finance wars, continually expand welfare roles  Bankers would also have more incentive to limit it's lending. If people ready to accept all these things means It will become a global currency.;)

If Bitcoin became global currency, it would necessarily limit what bankers and govt could do. It would be much, much more difficult for govt to finance wars, continually expand welfare roles (as opposed to focusing on those who are in most need), subsidize various industries, etc. Bankers would also have more incentive to limit it's lending.


Example 2
I think Its good to save enough money to stand on so you will not be broke in the future. Imagine if 20 million people want to save 1 BTC for future spending, then we would only have 1 million BTC in circulation. I almost forgot about the BTC that has been destroyed so the number of BTC available for people to save and spend is less than 21 million total BTC. It is technically not possible to replace the U.S. dollar with Bitcoin

http://monitor.cryptofellows.com/date/2015/07/05/page/14


Example 3
To avoiding PayPal scams is not hard. To start with many of these scam emails are already filtered to your spam folder. If for some reason one escapes through the email.All you have to do is login to your Paypal account. The address bar doesn’t say paypal.com so be sure not to enter your login info means confirm the webpage is a scam and they said they currently have no such promotion. So be careful about this to avoid to getting scam.

Copied from 2 parts of the same page (main body and comments)

Example 4
I think there is a bug in the windows version that can corrupt the database when you shutdown the client. You might want to try reindexing the blockchain or reinstalling the blockchain but use the same wallet, or try to export your private keys and import them into a different wallet such as multibit.

https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/3aa3ja/bitcoin_core_wallet_issue_v_0102/


Example 5
Better always go with blockchain This is whats known as a hybrid wallet meaning the company stores your wallet online but they do not have access to your private keys. However since the wallet is loaded from their servers some trust in the company is still needed.I will Recommend for beginners who are trying out Bitcoin

What is the status of those users caught copying and pasting posts?
Is there any action taken against them?

What's the status of those users caught asking a question which has been answered two posts above?
Is there any action taken against them, or do we just have to put up with it because they're in a signature campaign?

Most of the time, you have to report the spammers to a moderator before any action is taken.
The admins on this forum don't really check whether there are spammers. If the spammers are caught, most of the time they get a permaban.
Why should we put up with them just because they are in a signature campaign?
That used to be the problem with YoBit because it is a bot and people could just spam. Now hilariousandco has control of the bot and people can't spam anymore.
All other signature campaigns won't accept people that spam.

Another copy-paste spammer: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=207576 . Too lazy to post his copied posts, but seems he added one or two words before the copied sentence , cross-reference his parts of posts with search function in the thread.

Edit: Some example:

People thought that bitcoin will disappear from the economy a while ago, however the coins have passed the test of time and it is even growing at a speed rate know could ever imagine of. Now that big financial institutions in the world are supporting and investing in bitcoins, it is a indication that they will not run out of market. It is a force that is here to reckon. I am so sure that by the end of this year, the digital currency might have been allowed in very many nations.

I guess not, banks have different roles with bitcoin, as reliable storage for public money, the making of money, and borrowing money in the real world and if the bank does not exist, there may be economic damage
My guess is no!

Banks have different roles with bitcoin, as reliable storage for public money, the making of money, and borrowing money in the real world and if the bank does not exist, there may be economic damage to all involved.


I don't think it will be like that, I think it would be a top currency and the top in online transactions but not to the degree of being that expensive.

Another guy who copies stuff but modifies them a wee bit.  :)

Australia won this match with an innings and 65 runs. That's a massive win margin on a pretty decent batting surface. This will tell us how well Australia have played and it was all about the basics. A massive first innings score and a diligent bowling display from the bowlers. New Zealand lose a test at home for the first time since March 2012.

An innings and 65 runs. That's a massive margin, on a pretty decent batting surface. Tells you how well Australia have played and it was all about the basics. A massive first-innings score and a diligent bowling display, hitting on and around off stump ever so often, which made the conventional swing and the reverse swing they generated that much more of a threat. New Zealand lose a test at home for the first time since March 2012.


Brendon McCullum blasted into history with the fastest Test hundred of them all to leave Australia speechless and NZ got some good runs in this innings. McCullum came to the crease in his final Test when NZ lost thre first three wickets for just 32 runs and immediately started a quick attract and scored 145 runs in just 79 balls. NZ still got a chance to win this match, if they bowl well.

Brendon McCullum blasted into history with the fastest Test hundred of them all to leave Australia speechless and grant New Zealand a first-innings foothold on an unforgettable afternoon at Hagley Oval.
Arriving at the crease with the hosts a floundering 32 for 3 in the 20th over of the innings, McCullum launched an immediate counterattack in the lead-up to lunch.

Another one.

Example 1
Bitcoin is a digital currency and money. I think more people will now use more Bitcoin than cash. They use it because it is more worth.
Bitcoin is now also becoming popular around this time. People will use it more and more and cash is now disappearing.

Example 2
In 5 years, it can become stable, i think in one condition if it would be regulated. For my opinion, for somehow Bitcoin must be regulated. Hiwever, the total centralization would kill all key features for what we value cryptocurrency. So I think after 5 years we find the way how to regulated it, but keep its features as well. Otherwise, it remain unstable, And it is popularity would grow slowly as well as an investment in it.

I think it will rise even after the Halving. Because people will realise that the amount of BTC is limited. And also, there will be another halving approaching and so on. So i think the price will rise in 2016 and then stay about the same for the  2017.
It will rise even after the Halving. Because people will realise that the amount of BTC is limited. And also, there will be another halving approaching and so on.

I think that price will be hit early January the 500$, since all media talk about Bitcoin more people will get involved with Bitcoin.
I think that price will be hit early Middle 2017 the 500$, since all media talk about Bitcoin more people will get involved with Bitcoin.

no trading is a very smart job honestly because there are very very rare chances of occurring loss when you do trading because most of traders have stocks of bitcoin when the price is low and sells it when it begins to go high since this is the time when most of the user buy bitcoin.

Hold!!! Bitcoin is investment with the big opportunity to see the kind of rewards that we have potential to see down the road is not often open to those of us with very little capital or cash funds to begin with.

maybe yes . but now a lot of factors supporting prices back up. one halving that will happen in a few months. then increasingly familiar bitcoin, and bitcoin increasingly sought the growing bitcoin community. not impossible bitcoin could break the above 700USD. even 1000USD.  ;D

Bitcoin can never replace fiat, bitcoin will be used as currency but it will never replace fiat, as there are few things that only fiat can take care of, bitcoin will be popular but will not used as a major currency, people have more faith in fiat and they are used to it, so they will never support bitcoins.

France – Scotland
Although the French will certainly want to win this last test before the euro,I must have in mind that their guests are always unpleasant and tough national team of Scotland, so I have decided here for an option with fewer goals.: under 2.5 goals

This above post was copied from http://betting-preview.com/france-vs-scotland-04-06-2016-international/.

France vs Cameroon
Even though the French want to confirm their good form before this penultimate check-up before EURO, we must also know that they are hosting a very stiff and unpleasant team of Cameroon, so I have therefore decided for this option with a slightly smaller number of goals.: under 3 goals

Example 1
Bitcoin is still not that stable compared to gold, and it is going to take a while before the price stabilizes. Part of the reason is the small number of bitcoin users and transactions. It is not yet at the level in which it can be trusted as a stable currency, which favors those who are into trading, as the price can swing wildly in a matter of days. Gold is ok and most countries use it to back their currency because of its inherent stability.

Bitcoin is still not that stable compared to gold, and it is going to take a while before the price stabilizes,
the reason is the small number of bitcoin users and transactions.

Example 2
Bitcoin has a lot of press at this point and a lot of technical people already know what it is and have decided to buy in or not but we are still seeing growth. we can see  a steady and significant increase which over time appears to show exponential growth.
Note that the price rise late last year created an increase in adoption which appears to have sustained throughout 2014.

Actually, I prefer this user's copied posts to his regular posts.
90% of the posts have "and that is nice" in them.  :P

If you are a staff + you are convinced that all these ids are the same + you have evidence of copy-pasting, then why aren't they banned?


Title: Re: New posting bot
Post by: hilariousandco on June 16, 2016, 04:45:22 PM
I've banned some of them before for copy and pasting but not sure all are. I'll have to look into it.

Just banned anopther five copy and pasters and there's still likely many more. If anyone wants to help out busting bots just go to the typical spammy threads and check the latest posts. If you copy two or three fairly unique words or look for typos you sometimes get a hit. Example:

From the thread Gambling. Is It Wrong?: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1166089.0

One of the latest posts:

When you gamble, Make your own rules, and FOLLOW them strictly.

I have a lot of rules when I gamble, I have "fun" money whether it be bitcoin or cash.  I don't ever lose more than that what I had set aside for the fun money.

Also-know when to quit when you are ahead, I don't ever set a goal for how much I want to be up, because if you are so close to that amount, you might never hit it and then be out of money.  Usually depends on the situation, but if I hit a couple lucky runs, I will say, ok, I am going to be up this amount no matter what, and replace my fun money with profits, so that even if I lose, I still maintain my profit.

Use gambling as a time for fun, don't try to get rich out of it.

Using the search bot with 'Also-know' gives you a few hits:

Use gambling as a time for fun, don't try to get rich out of it. Most of the time you loose, and it takes lot's of time, money, bets and effort to skill up.
I don't ever lose more than that what I had set aside for the fun money. Also-know when to quit when you are ahead. Usually depends on the situation, but if I hit a couple lucky runs,I will replace my fun money with profits, so that even if I lose, I still maintain my profit. ;D

Once you find one user that has done this check the posts quickly after it as a lot of the time they'll have alts posting one after the other copying different posts. It's time consiming and essentially playing whack a mole but it feels good when you get a few shitposters  ;D.

I'm sure someone will come up with an anti-bot, where it detects copy pasters, and grades or scores according to how much was copied that isn't quoted. Something like copyscape. And with a quick look by a real human, we can decide if it's spammy enough or bott-ish.

We sure wouldn't want an auto-banner that goes on an uncontrolled rampage.

How much leniency are copy-pasters shown?
My view is 3 or more instances are sufficient for a perma-ban.

One is all you need. If you've copied a person's post then you'll likely do it again but once I find one I'll usually have a quick look at their recent page of posts and check a few and you'll usually find there's many more but I don't have time to go through every page to see how many posts they may or may not have copied. There's no justification why anyone should copy a user's posts and it's simply just a lazy way of sig spamming/farming and trying to appear constructive and that's why we have a zero tolerance for it. The only leniency I would give is with someone copying external content just the once but copy another users post here and you're done no exceptions.

Hmm...

Here is one....

Example 1
Lol wat??
You don't have to believe in fiat, it exists and it works for day to day transactions.  Don't know about its future.

The history of fiat money, to put it kindly, has been one of failure. In fact, EVERY fiat currency since the Romans first began the practice in the first century has ended in devaluation and eventual collapse, of not only the currency, but of the economy that housed the fiat currency as well.

Copied from

Example 2
Banks will be encouraged to lend more to their weakest borrowers and take on excessive risks if global regulators push ahead with a rule change aimed at making it harder to cheat on safety measures, a leading industry group has warned.

Example 3
Pay attention to the big themes, because they are what will help you earn ten times your money.Try to use your rest of money to buy and sell bitcoin and get rich soon,

You have to be a real low-life to make a bot, or buy one, to post for you. It is already quite easy to post for yourself and you learn things about Bitcoin as well. Why do people do such things?

I had noted that BigBoy89 (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=248564), HarHarHar9965 (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=131686), greBit (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=62974), ausbit (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=390217) and Marbit (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=120267) had connected addresses at one point of time.

I had posted examples of BigBoy99 (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1163169.msg13303799#msg13303799) and  HarHarHar9965 (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1163169.msg13372498#msg13372498) copy-pasting stuff earlier, but they got away.


Banned. Will look into the others later.

You have to be a real low-life to make a bot, or buy one, to post for you. It is already quite easy to post for yourself and you learn things about Bitcoin as well. Why do people do such things?

Most of these Indonesians and Fillipino spammers probably wont have a bot and will likely just find an older post and copy and paste in manually. Why do they do it? Greed and laziness. If they struggle with English it's much easier to just copy and paste a constructive post then risk getting banned for shitposting but it's not really worth it because you'll get caught eventually and all your accounts will be banned in the process.

Something like "you already have reported this post" or even better "somebody already reported this post to moderation, we'll take a look at the report shortly", yes.
It would help me from time to time, when I'm not really sure whether or not I already have a specific post/user reported...
Maybe that's something for the new forum software :)

The user Duivel is mine wife and her English isn't that great. She hoped to participate in some Primedice giveaways but needed an higher forum level required for some giveaways. She decided that it was more easy to copy and paste some text but wasn't aware it was not aloud. She also didn't ask me if it was aloud so I couldn't tell her about it. She never had any bad intentions.

She only play some simple Bitcoin games and gamble a little bit only with that reason she use this forum. Is there a chance that she can get deblocked. Sorry for the problems that occurred hope this can get fixed.

Do you share the same IP? If yes, then it may be better for you to avoid the forum for some time, or you could get nailed for ban evasion.
People use the argument of brother/roommate/wife sharing the internet connection to evade bans using their alts, but this argument is usually not accepted.

Another one.

mostly poker players.It is a game where you choose to bet or not,depending on how strong your hand is.All the other games have odds that favour the casino.Therefore you will always loose in the long run.
If you are disciplined and willing to learn than you can definitely make money from playing poker.Alongside discipline you have to be good at managing your bankroll.For instance if you have $500,You should be playing with $20-$50 at every table you play.Once you build your bankroll and poker skills you can move to higher stakes.

Gambling when done properly can be a very entertaining and enjoyable activity. When abused it can be one of the worst things in the world. Gambling is just like drinking. Out about 100 people who drink, maybe 20 have problems with it. Gambling is the same way. And the effects of the problem are about the same as well.

Bots are easily distinguished among members. Bots are 100% accurate, if you've seen too perfect posts about a certain topic, or too off-topic about that post, then that is easily perceptible. One example of this is if the topic is about Etherium mining and you've seen a post regarding other Altcoins. Then that would be easily distinguished.

What a strategy to have a constructive post copying the same post by other members. There should be a punishment to these user.

But I think, for me getting some several lines from others and combined them is fine as long as it make sense and not off topic. Atleast they made a little effort. But copying the same post and just pasting it which they didn't made any effort have a penalty. Just my 20cents (This is only my opinion, of course im not doing it)

A basic rewriting script can also be used. There are many out there free to download and people write their own. For example. Take the post I am quoting. Running it through a one pass rewrite app; this is what it generated all on its own, I made no changes to it myself.

What a system to have a valuable post duplicating the same post by different individuals. There ought to be a discipline to these client.

Be that as it may, I think, for me getting exactly a few lines from others and consolidated them is fine the length of it bode well and not off point. Atleast they tried. However, duplicating the same post and simply gluing it which they didn't attempted have a punishment. Simply my 20cents (This is just my feeling, obviously im not doing it)

It will be a good idea to start advertising and make all know about it worldwide. As said, current business trend is to advertise online and public about the business to spread all over. We need to set up stores. This would bring more hidden money into lights. This would make the economy wealthy. More will be employed.

Bitcoin seems like the perfect currency for developing countries, the only potential downsides are it's vulnerability to hacking and it's irreversible nature (which can also be a positive). It strips out many fees associated with banks or payment transfer systems like Western Union. It could potentially be stopped by governments if they make it hard to exchange into a local currency but people can be surprisingly creative when it comes to obstacles like that. I fear however that low tech governments would want to block it when they are scared off it by established payment processors who want to prevent competition.

Another one....

Example 1
Fluctuations in global crude oil prices have always been the focus of the economic and financial news. The higher crude oil prices rise, the more positive is the economic outlook for petroleum exporters. In contrast, countries dependent on petroleum imports suffer to varying degrees from those same higher prices as import bills increase. Estimates for the price per barrel for crude oil from leading financial and multilateral institutions are thus closely monitored by governments, investors, and consumers alike.

Example 2
I'm a religious person figuring out and accepting that the purpose of life is different from each individual and varies from the like Growing up Christian and until now is that people's perspective change and people change but what doesn't change (or changes as little as possible) is what you enjoy as a person or what makes you happy as an individual by which you should pursue with the fullest extent of your mind body an soul. Granted, within the laws of your state and country which as well protects you and your fellow neighbors from those whose pursuit of happiness may/may not be as well accepted by those of authority, nevertheless, as long as your passion in life is legal (to an extent) there should be no reason to find out who you are and then find what makes you happy and then going on from there only you and you alone can make this decision.
However, it's perfectly acceptable to ask for guidance every now an then. Good luck!

If not that will suck for over on goals bets or for a half time win.

No. That is usually the reason why they rise all the sudden when something like that comes to known before a match starts.

It won't help me beat the house, but it guarantee I won't lose more than I should.

Yup, some people will not like being responsible. It's too stressful to keep track of all your wealth, do a lot of backups, and hope your house doesn't burn or you don't get stolen. Thats why some people like banks and trust them more than what they trust themselves.

Unless bitcoin goes mainstream we still need banks to process all the fiat transactions, provide loans and stuff. And the whole thing actually revolves around debt and these are what keeps banks alive. Until then there is no harm if btc exist alongside fiat.

So does it mean that my hypothesis (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1711832.msg17152208#msg17152208) of users deleting their old posts and submitting them again got finally confirmed?

Bots are easily distinguished among members. Bots are 100% accurate, if you've seen too perfect posts about a certain topic, or too off-topic about that post, then that is easily perceptible. One example of this is if the topic is about Etherium mining and you've seen a post regarding other Altcoins. Then that would be easily distinguished.

I agree about completely off-topic posts

In fact, I caught a few copy-pasters myself because their posts were too out of place. But what do you mean by too perfect posts on a certain topic? I often check my recent posts for typos and grammar as well as correct them with the purpose of more smooth exposition (though I don't pretend that they are perfect, of course), and I've received positive feedback about their content and substance (both in private and public). Could you give an example of such a post, I'm really curious to see that

Sorry but your friend should've reported the message to a moderator. It's not the mod's job to search through every post for plagiarism and delete them.

So does it mean that my hypothesis (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1711832.msg17152208#msg17152208) of users deleting their old posts and submitting them again got finally confirmed?

Kind of. But this wasn't a newbie deleting old posts and another newbie posting them.
The original post was by a Hero member. I guess the account must have been banned if the user didn't mind deleting the posts.

Are banned users allowed to delete their posts?

I understand that it was a Hero member, but couldn't the same be done by lower ranks too, especially if they get banned (provided they can delete their posts, of course)? Also, if they have enough posts, their activity shouldn't go down as long as the number of posts matches (or exceeds) the required minimum for their rank. So there is at least one reason for doing that, right?

The post count is stored each time you hit the "post" button. 1 is not added to it when you edit it, so 1 wouldn't be removed when deleting it. I think that getting a ban prevents your from logging into your account. Unless there's a way to bypass it then you will not be able to delete the posts (And would be breaking the terms of your ban affording yourself a permanent ban). Also, activity is generated from post count so if the count is fixed and can only increase, then so is the activity count.

Nope, your post count goes down when a post you make is deleted. You can try it out. So you are wrong about the activity count only increasing as well.
Plus a ban doesn't prevent you from logging into your account. The ban message tells you what you can't do.

You are banned from posting or sending personal messages on this forum

Here is another one....

Original
Bitcoin is just a medium of exchange....The real wealth is contained within the goods and services which are exchanged utilizing the platform. If one were to store all of their wealth into a cryptocurrency, instead of exchanging it for an equally valued good or service, and the market dropped out because it was stolen or exploited, then it would have no value to anybody.  In that case, another medium of exchange would present itself.  The goods (bricks, steel, gas, solar panels....etc) and the services (doctors, lawyers, engineers....etc) are where true wealth abides, not the means of exchanging such wealth. Now....if a blockchain could become more resourceful and utilitarian, then we'd have a whole different beast for which to contend.  <---Just an observation!

And the spammer
It takes too much time to build a protected and secured your funds from your wallet.. in bitcoin i only trust on the wallet like coinbase and blockchain

Another danger is the price of coins, it can go down at some point and it loses value. So you have a loss... Because of it, it's important to know in which coins invest, to don't lose your money price on medium or long term.

The forum's quite quick. The browsers of the people using it is slow?
There is a limit of one connection per second (I think) meaning that you cannot send more than one request to the server from the same IP more than 1 second (making it harder for archiving services as well). Maybe there's a mirrored version of this site tat could be tested instead? It's a shame the entire index.php data isn't uploaded to somewhere like github with the part of the sql data that contains the information such as user who posted it, rank, activity, post count, signature, avatar and actual text of what they put.
I thought the forum was intended to be fairly slow anyway due to the magnitude of information that needs pulling and loading.

Yes, there is captcha solving software and bypass systems that can be added to the captcah software. This means that the captchas added are pactically ineefective and a person could always save the post as a draft (before the captcha) and then post the draft afterwards (not to difficult to post 20 drafts to a site at random times and they're supposed to be spam anyway and can blend into some of what already exists).

Usury is a action where loan is given to person based on the condition that he should pay a certain percent of amount as interest irrespective of whether he gains profit or not.If usury is banned and interest free loans are given, it will be good but today we dont find any such options.In some islamic countries,islamic banking system is followed as an alternative option. I dont know how banning usury will promote crypto currencies because usury is a financial option and crypto currency is a trading option.They are not inter related to each other.

Rehashed with the dictionary definition of usury and the highlighted portion of the post above.

Usury is the illegal action or practice of lending money at unreasonably high rates of interests.Usury is a financial option and cryptocurrencies are trading option.They are not inter related to each other.We can inturn say that promoting crypto currencies and providing people a new source of income would free people from Usury.

I guess you should evaluate the post content on the overall impression it produces (i.e. whether it contributes something new to discussion). Otherwise, you'll be seeing only that, namely, rehashed combinations of the alphabet symbols. While I don't like neither of these posts, but it's certainly not for the reasons which you base your conclusion on

I'm not not a mod (and don't wanna be one unless I'm really well paid), but if I were I wouldn't perma ban for just this kind of posts. On the other hand, if I were a campaign manager I wouldn't want such posts (and posters) either. Since it seems to be pretty straightforward that such posts are made exclusively for the sake of payment (in the majority of cases), it should be enough to just exclude them from the sig campaign they are enrolled in or just disable their signatures if they persist in spamming

Aside from his role in national politics, Singh has also been elected on seven occasions to the Himachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly.The first occasion was in a by-election in October 1983, when he was returned for the Jubbal-Kotkhai constituency.[citation needed] He won that seat again in the 1985 elections.[citation needed] Thereafter, he was elected from the Rohru constituency in 1990, 1993, 1998 and 2003.[citation needed]Senior BJP leader and union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Thursday accused Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh of receiving bribe from a private company in the garb of an unsecured loan. However, Virbhadra Singh described the allegations as "political vendetta". Addressing a press conference in Delhi, the union minister for communications and information technology said that Virbhadra Singh snipped off crores of rupees as unsecured loan. "Venture Energy Technology Private Limited, whose project was revived by Virbhadra Singh...and after a while, the owner of the company gave Rs.1.5 crore as unsecured loan to the chief minister's wife and Rs.2.4 crore to the chief minister.

Wijnaldum has been a challenging one to pin down this season. I thought he was brilliant early doors and was a very underappreciated player, but it's often only with closer inspection that you see what he does. When you pay real attention you see his influence, his strength and unshakable coolness on the ball. I'm reminded every time I discuss him by the way he was summed up by The Anfield Wrap after the derby.

Reserve currency is currency held by central banks and other major financial institutions as a means to pay off international debt obligations, or to influence their domestic exchange rate. A large percentage of commodities, such as gold and oil, are priced in the reserve currency, causing other countries to hold this currency to pay for these goods.
Does Bitcoin have a chance?

The original
If you invest money in any site, you should keep on track your investment not in a daily basis at least 3 to 4 days you have to check. Becasue the site's performance are not always same, the profit giving sites will run in loss sometimes. In that time if it continues long term we have to move our funds to another reputed sites these are the problems we face in investment. 

based on my personal experience investing in gambling site always make your heart beat , you know why? it is because there always ann unexpected winning from players that causing the investors money get dropped to negative.

it is like how the real gambling work , you will hard to divest your money , you will always want more.

Yes in gambling ofcourse we need strategy. Strategy is a method or plan chosen to bring about a desired future, such as achievement of a goal or solution to a problem.
The art and science of planning and marshalling resources for their most efficient and effective use. The term is derived from the Greek word for generalship or leading an army. See also tactics.

Just curious. Not even a temp ban on a user who copy-pasted his own post? The user is still active and posting.
Others seem to be getting perma-banned for copy pasting

That seems to be something not covered by the rules

I mean copy-pasting one's own posts, though it shouldn't be welcomed of course. Obviously, a mod should decide on their own what to do in such cases (as the rules explicitly state). Since the forum paradigm looks like using the ban-hammer as rarely as possible (which I totally agree with), I think that a simple warning would suffice (at least, for the first time). I guess this is what has been done in this case. As an aside, don't get too blood-thirsty (remember, karma is a bitch)

In this case, the copy-pasting seems to be more of a one-off example, plus he has copied his own post. That maybe the reason why there is no ban.

Those sorts will be taken on a case by case basis. I don't think copying your own post is that bad just as long as it is still relevant and a user wasn't doing it en mass or making a habit of it etc. You can't plagiarise your own content after all so a warning would be more appropriate than a ban in this case.

I am not really sure if this is a very smart bot, or just a lazy man copying others' posts. Whichever case it is, it is against the forum rules.
To be honest it wouldn't take a very smart bot. You could build a markov chain on a ton of posts from the site and it'd spit out posts that made sense.

Bans should be given out with reservations

Otherwise, they will quickly get devalued and people start moving to other places where the price for a ban is higher. You should do something really great to get a ban (let alone a permaban). That's why members looking and striving for power should never be made moderators in the first place since they will heavily abuse their moderator's position (too many bans for too little effort) and severely damage the forum reputation as well (i.e. as a place where different opinions are welcomed)

I made a really small corpus from a few posts from the last couple of pages from this thread and got this:

Well, it seems that this bot feels particularly interested in my posts specifically

Though I can't really say that they make a lot of sense (I don't mean my posts, of course). In the very least, they are still looking bizarre and somewhat out of place, more like Google Translate results. I guess you would fare a lot better if you just used it directly and translated posts from one section of the forum (or a completely different forum, to evade the ban hammer for longer) and post them in the appropriate thread which roughly matches the topic where you pull them from. Google Translate seems to be well tolerated here, though it is obviously not a substitute for stupidity and ignorance

I don't think so. Bans are not given out for having a different opinion. They are given out only for spamming and that is linked to paid signatures.
A stricter policy might result in more serious members staying, where as the others might leave. Not a bad outcome.

As to me, this doesn't look plausible

Why should "more serious members" stay if they see the ban-hammer hitting all over the place? If by "more serious members" you mean more knowledgeable ones, I don't see any such relationship or dependence, I mean between them staying here and stricter policies. Personally, I expect quite the opposite, i.e. such policies would actually revert them from the forum since more knowledgeable people are almost always more tolerant to spamming than to excessive moderation, being mostly of libertarian attitude themselves. I don't like spam and useless posts either but authoritarian and draconian moderation policies I like even less

Efficiency advantages should not be the grounds on which to condemn Bitmain, nor should ethics or morality, these were not a part of the founding principles of Bitcoin.  It is written in the rules that PoW mining is a free market as has been said, and is subject to the rules of a free market. It's also disingenuous to claim that shortcuts in the PoW process are an exploit, if they still accomplish the same goal with the same level of security. At most they could be considered an oversight in the design of Merkle–Damgård construction, but in that case they are evenly open to said optimization (patents do not apply to this argument).  The empty block argument is also null, it does not effectively hurt the bitcoin ecosystem, it is simply a byproduct of a process improvement.  That said, I fully side with Nick Szabo in what he said:

"Secret mining advantage is expected. The problem is incentive to oppose incompatible upgrades for secret reasons."

That is it.  No condemnation of shady Chinese backdoor deals about hardware improvements, or how they potentially de-frauded their customers by selling them hardware that was neutered in order to hinder competition and hide their own advantages.  None of that has any bearing on this conversation (though ti deserves its own).  Just remove the roadblocks that hinder future improvement protocols (covert boost), and demand transparency in issues that revolve around bitcoin governance and the future of the protocol instead of hiding behind secret agendas. 

If Bitmain is already taking advantage of ASICboost covertly for their own mining, and they own the patent in their own jurisdiction (again, set morality/ethics of potential infringement aside), then what would prevent them from continuing to use ASICboost technology overtly and reap the same advantage/benefit they are already? If it's to protect the public opinion of their company, they need to take their head out of the sand. Everyone knows what they are about.

I am looking for best online casino for sports game betting  .
in last of few days I tried cloudbet.com but this site has little bit lazy host provider (my opinion )
please Here post your best gambling/betting site for sports games & also tell your reason that why you like that site :/
There are Many Online Casinos You can Try Out Online to do Gambling Like Bitvest, Cloudbet, Directbet and Many Other Websites are Available to Do Gambling But I Don't Suggest anyone to Take Gambling Seriously and Put Big Money In Gambling Because Gambling is Just a Shit Game of Luck and No one Wants to Waste his Money On a Luck Based Game.......

If someone which follows the set of rules and be discipline enoff. Can people make 50-100 $ a day just gambling in online casino.....?
According to me Gambling Never Be Profitable in Long Term Because Gambling is Just a Shit Game Based On Luck and All the Casinos of the World Works on a Probability Basis and it's not possible to win from a casino.
So I Suggest you to Don't Take Gambling Seriously Just Do Gambling For Fun Sometimes.......

I am not searching for a shortcut, but trying to figure out where I am lagging.
But I am afraid I may end up wasting half of my life in finding out a perfect strategy.

Probably no or random strategy is the right approach ? or just searching for a new strategy is the real fun in gambling ?
According to me there is no strategy in Gambling because Gambling is Just a Shit Game Based on Luck, It's Not a Business to Think and Make Strategy to Grow or Expand your Business. So I Suggest you to Never Try to Make Profit By Doing Gambling Because It will Never Make You Rich.........

There are many gambling sites. Many of them serve as dice sites.

What are the features you should have in a good gambling site?
According to me All the Gambling Sites are Probably Fair to their Users and Have Some Bonuses and Less Withdrawal Fees and Gambling Website Owner Should Focus on Their Users Experience on their Website. Only Then I Can Say that Gambling Website is Good.........

I've became interested in playing dice games with my BTC but every time I play I lose. Is there something that I'm doing wrong, or dice games are supposed to be like that? (sorry I'm new to this) Isn't there a guide or tutorial where I could get started playing these games? I don't know how this really works. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks  ;)

So far, I like dicecoin.io  :D
According to me there is no Strategy to win in Gambling Games Like dice Games Because all the Dice Sites work on a Probability Basis So It's Not Possible to Win On that type Of Website But You can do Gambling For Fun But it's not Possible to Make Big Money in Dice Games So I Suggest You to Do Some Other Business Instead Of Wasting your Money in Dice Sites.....

My game is craps.
It is always interesting to see how the night goes on that.
My Favourite Game is Dice Games Because I Feel Fun When I Start Playing Dice Games and Also I Only Do this For Fun Only Because Gambling is Just a Shit Game Based On Luck and I Don't Want to Waste My Money in a Luck Based Game But Sometimes it is Good For Fun Only........

Hey! Good day i really need some answers because its about gambling in your life and other people are playing for it with heart and i just thought that how can gambling help you with your life? and do you gain something from it? does it help you to be wise or worst your attitude will change.. i need answers please!
According to me Gambling is Just a Shit Game That Will Waste your Time And Money Because Gambling is Just Based On Luck and How Someone Can Put Money in a Luck Based Game To Make Profit, So I Suggest You to Don't Do Gambling Because You will End Up With No Profit Even You can Lose Your Money You are Doing Gambling with.....

I still wondered after watching one dice gambling tips on youtube. she suggested to use a vpn American countries. Do you think the state and affect our current location to gamble? , please give your opinion
No According to me it Doesn't Effect your Winning Chances Because all the Casinos of World Work on a Probability Basis and But You can Use a VPN If you Want to Do Gambling But the Gambling Website Don't Available in your Country But I Don't Suggest Anyone to Do Gambling Because it's Just a Game Of Luck and No One can Become Rich Through Gambling........

How different is trading from just gambling? I know there seems to be a  big difference with technical analysis and whatnot, but in the end aren't you just betting on something completely random?
Trading Can Never Be Same as Gambling Because Gambling is Just a Shit Game Based on Your Luck and You Don't Need any Technical Knowledge and Experience in it But On the Other Hand In Trading You Need to Use Your Knowledge and Experience to Make Profit From Your Invested Money.......

Copy/paste:

I'm not a fan of gambling by itself, but instead as a way of studying and learning about other things.  For instance, I'm sure that if elderly people kept playing card games, it would help keep their minds alert.  Studying poker involves studying human nature and probabilities.   There are other aspects like studying risk in gambling, which is like studying risk in investing. 

Does anyone have any examples of how gambling is like investing?


According to me it's not possible that anyone can become perfect by just doing Gambling because Gambling is just a Game Of Luck and a User can't win for long term because all the Casinos of the World work on a probability basis so I Don't Suggest anyone to do Gambling in order to make some money.......

Hey? good day to you mates i have something bothering me like crazy my brother is one hell perfect guy because he won big time in gambling so he called him self perfect because he has a lot of money now and he's beginning to have a a nice car with beautiful girlfriend  because of gambling i am here to ask you how can gambling make someone perfect? if it is why does gambling make someone perfect we are equal but gambling made him perfect >.<
According to me it's not possible that anyone can become perfect by just doing Gambling because Gambling is just a Game Of Luck and a User can't win for long term because all the Casinos of the World work on a probability basis so I Don't Suggest anyone to do Gambling in order to make some money.......


I am not sure is this bot or someone is writing, but there are bunch of variations of "according to me gambling is just shit game of luck, casinos are provably fair and I suggest you to not to gamble".
Last 2 are c/p.



And also these posts are looking the same

For those experienced people in Bitcoin, any encouragement to us beginner that may motivate us further to strive more in the world of bitcoin ? any experiences that you can share when you were still a beginner that pushed you to make it to the next level ?
According to me You Should Firstly Gain Adequate Knowledge about the Cryptocurrencies and After that I Suggest you to Try to Buy Little Amount of Bitcoins and Try to Grow them By Doing Trading and Doing Some Other Activities that help you to grow your Bitcoins.......

I am new member, I don't know how to start with the bitcoin. It very difficult with me. Excuse me! But Everybody can help me by show me, how to buy one coin and advertise it and Make my coin a name. Thanks you very much.
I Think You Need Some Important Information About Bitcoin or other Altcoins Before Buying Bitcoin or any other Coin Because Firstly Gain Some Knowledge and After that Gain Experience about the Bitcoin and Other Altcoins.....

There are two name for fluctuating of price,
Price going up is bullish and price going down is bearish.
And name for traders are pigs because there are many traders lost their money on trading. That is why we need system trading or trading plan as weapon and Shield for counter bears and bulls.  ;D
Bulls make money. Bears make money. Pigs? They get slaughtered
According to me it's Better to Firstly Study the Markets and Having Knowledge about trading and Knowledge about the Coin you are Investing your Money in and Also Have knowledge of the Market Cap, Demand and Supply and Other Things Realted to that Altcoin...........

I want to share with you guys some methods how all of you (except those who are using these methods) can benefit from your Bitcoin holdings. But please have in mind that trading is always risky and it requires knowledge and sophisticated approach. If you know and understand your responsability, you can give a try. Myself, I have profits trading on these platforms.

~

Happy trading and big profits!
As You Said Above that Trading is Risky So I Suggest the Newbies who Want to Start Trading that Firstly Get Some Knowledge about Trading Online and then Start Doing Trading Because Trading is a Unpredictable Job and Without Knowledge You can Lose Your All Money.
So Don't Try Out Trading without Proper Knowledge.....

Another one. Copied word to word, with spelling mistakes et al.

Message to barca fans : Want to talk about bad refereeing ? watch PSG 1-6 Barca. You people are the last ones who should talk about corruption and bad referee. About CR7 yes he did score only 2 goals from the penalty box. But this game is all about goals. Finishing is all that counts. Dont believe me? Your team is on the verge of UCL exit because suarez and iniesta couldnt finish. Take that. Message to my fellow RM fans : Yeah it was a good game overall. But dont be overconfident and ignorant. The tie is far from over and with Lewa in madrid leg anything can happen. Its just 2-1.
btw : Take tym to appreciate superb goalkeeping performances from Buffon yesterday and Neur today. Goalkeepers never get praised enough!

EPL - Liverpool, Chelsea, ManU, Nottingham and Aston Villa have all one the CL. Only spanish team to win CL is Madrid and Barcelona. No one else.

Juve should get Veratti for the central midfield and Douglas Costa on the wing. They are a top 4 teams and has been for 3-4 years. Keep Dybala no matter what.

They don't bother to hire a decent manager to check the post quality of their participant. Their main objective is to just collect funds then run.

I have some question regarding permaban. How to know if a user was already permaban? I saw the profile of the user posted on the first page that commit copy/paste method. But i can't see any note or mark that it was ban. I'm just curious.

There is no way to find out for sure. If the permaban was applied recently (last few months), then the user's signature will be removed.

There's a lot and there'll be even more if you look into it. Another one:

Dybala put on a scoring clinic today with the 3 - 0 win of Juventus over Barcelona. Barcelona would have a very tough hill to climb if they want to at least advance in the Champions League.
now with dybala, cuadrado and pjanic, juve can survive without a creative MF but juve so badly need a dynamic midfielder and Rincon, sturaru and lemina are just not good enough. matuidi or mousa sissoko or even witsel were all good choices. Verrati is a player to build a whole team around though, too tempting. we need a right back, and a sub for sandro too

One more... I agree with locking the sports discussion threads.

If Messi played in Italy, there's no way he would score the goals that he does or be the player he is.  Tactical awareness and defensive capabilities are just too strong in Italy.  Every striker who has played there has said that.

You missed one:

The only player from Barca that played well was Umti*i. Everyone else was pathetic. And how many times have we seen Luis Enrique start with some weak starting line-up in a diffficult away game, only for him to have his "Oh sh*t, shouldn't have done that; Iniesta, start warming up" moment? I'm not going to miss him when he's gone - especially his bad judgement and decisions. Oh, and btw, it looks like Real Madrid now have a very good chance of winning La Liga. They could potentially have a 6 point lead if they win their game in hand, and, of course, if things stay the same.

Yet another one. :)

In the eyes of some, government-backed currencies are coming to an end. To this small group of true believers, central banks like the Federal Reserve destabilize the economy and will bring an end to the supremacy of the dollar. Bitcoin, a completely virtual cryptocurrency, has captured the imaginations of libertarians and gold-standard lovers the world over as the dollar’s long-term replacement. Bitcoin was born into a world that had already begun to move away from paper transactions. Without the influence of governments or central banks, bitcoin truly operates like a free market system. However, despite having a passionate following, security concerns and volatility have plagued bitcoin. As a result, the cryptocurrency has little chance of replacing any national currencies. Nevertheless, virtual payment services like PayPal and bitcoin will likely continue to grow, as the economy moves increasingly toward a nearly paperless world. They may even push paper currency to the brink of obsolescence.

Interestingly enough, as part of a bid to preserve a historic park, a city in Japan is reportedly raising donations in bitcoin. The city is called Hirosaki, and according to a report from national public broadcaster NHK, is collecting funds to maintain more than 2,000 cherry blossom trees, as well as a centuries-old castle.

This is a first of its kind initiative by a public institution in Japan. As you might be aware, this is coming barely a few weeks after about 260,000 stores in parts of Japan started accepting the digital currency as a payment method.

Good job JAPAN!

I am surprised that mynhpark hasn't been banned yet.

There exist many reasons why the interest in Bitcoin is increasing at a rapid rate in Japan, for instance, Japan’s 10-year yields dropped back to zero percent for the first time since 2007. In conventional finance, the yield represents the income return on an investment that is normally expressed as an annual percentage rate. Japan’s zero percent yield shows a severe economic instability. Therefore, the Bank of Japan is attempting to print massive amounts of the Japanese yen in order to increase the inflation rate and keep the economy afloat.

If the inflation rate in Japan rises, like China, investors usually move to alternative safe haven assets and wealth management products (WMPs) such as gold and Bitcoin. In terms of liquidity and mid-term profitability, Bitcoin appeals to a larger market and thus, in times of financial instability and economic uncertainty, the demand for Bitcoin increases. Moreover, the Japanese mainstream media have been offering extensive coverage on Bitcoin, particularly due to the acceptance of Bitcoin by BiC Camera (a consumer electronics retailer chain in Japan) and the legalization of Bitcoin by the Japanese government.

There exist two main reasons why the interest in Bitcoin is increasing at a rapid rate in Japan, as shown in the trading volume and price chart above.

Well if that's the case, May be use some sort of plagiarism checking service, A Quick Google search revealed quite a few services which offered api's but cost upwards of $900 per month, And i believe instead of ip's being banned, Why not ban the systems, I think Chrome and all most All Browser have some sort of Unique Device ID, Why not store those and ban whole systems.

oh did not know about that, But as for script implementation, It is actually quite simple, Being a Programmer my self, I know for sure it will take around 10-20 lines of code at max to include a Plagiarism service. Here is how it would work, If you like to know... When a user clicks on the "Post" button a function would be called off, This Function will just send out the the Text from the "InputField" to the service via a simple HTTP request and get a response within 3-5 seconds, If the service say that plagiarisms is above let's say 80%, We will be checking it with a simple "If" Statement, If (Plagiarism > 80) {//Delete the Post Plus add 1 to warning}, After X warnings system can delete the user from the database and Add Evil Points to the IPs. But This May slow down the Posting Function, So instead of calling the Plagiarism function while the user is posting, The Server can call the function after the post has been made. Well thats me thinking in the realm of Unity Programming, Can be a little bit different for PHP thou. Any way its upto admins on how they want to tackle this.

After Thought: Or Instead of Paying for these services, A python bot can be made and use free Plagiarism services from the web to test the plagiarism, It will take some coding but i think it can be done. A Bot will be continuously run on a small server going through all the posts for a plagiarism check and if the plagiarism from free service is above XX%, Same above concept can be applied.

Plus a skype id and email thrown in (advertising?)
Most posts of this user are like this.

religion can die only if life dies
organized and traditional religions are that we think of religion, but i think adherence to anything is religion as broadest definition ( god is anything that is missing by anyone at any time ) .... focus changes ... so, scieance is religion as well as atheism (belief in non existence of the god) .... hah ... Almighty God is what we are missing .. lol .. can not be born .... must stay in transcendence to not to lose His perfection .... church and science can not allow god to be born .... as Almighty God is also Vanity, so He will never allow it to Himself, too ... ma'mamaaa ... when shall we get a god? .... We have only to activate our goodnesses and google zikalkis ... affirm our divine accounts of 10 000 $ a year and play games on his sites ... lol .. so easy ... if you need guidance or suggestions, I am on skype: skayovo  ... ema: zirobit@gmail.com ... probably, this year we will incept our Secular God into this civilization!

You mean this guy https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=1000902 ?

hi ... thanks .. no probs ... you blocked me for posting my link http://zikalkiszik.blogspot.hr/
you can block me i can not ignore you ... life is such .... can not find referrals anywhere
you must write: no external links in this chat, as you are pasting internal links!
you could ignore me, but you decided to block me, that is choice of stronger weapon
maybe you will unblock me and allow me begging, and ignore me if it is against  rule
however you can check my strategic game on bitcointalk under user "witsie" ... 
name: universal fans strategic game ... thanks .... it is a very promising adventure
fastbets: Do not promote your link on chat at FastBets! Your privilege our right! Okay!

Or this one https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=259333

i see .. soon will be promotion on 9th billion roll ... sadly, i can not participate ... my both accounts are banned
i understand it, i would ban myself for trolling too, and i do it often, but why they took my faucets rights, that is cruel,
so, i beg forumers to send me any amounts to any of both accounts: witsie73 and/or brendonen ... as tips or deposits
or join my sportsbetting industry by sending 0.001 btc on our bda: 17NhWcPYvsCPHCYeWBVbVznCYuKm2P72L3
so i can start your betting line and your bettor's account ... then you can check it here http://zikalkiszik.blogspot.hr/

Just a suggestion for admins, Why don't implement a simple captcha system? Like add 3 + 6 to post to for Newbies - Full Members or may be even include Hero Members too, It should greatly reduce spamming.

This won't help. Most of the spam is due to humans copy-pasting or typing nonsense for signature campaigns.
Adding a captcha to post won't deter them

Apart from that, newbies are not allowed to wear signatures

I haven't been visiting the Meta subsection of the forum recently (just this thread comes up occasionally in my Watchlist), so how do matters currently stand in respect to granting users a spammy tag or showing them as banned (if they have been banned), as the Witch had been suggesting? Since I still don't see any of these tags, I guess this suggestion has been finally abandoned? And while we are at it, this reply to one of my posts seems to be completely out of whack:

Inflation is really a mechanism for the growth of exports. The higher the inflation, the cheaper the cost of production in the country. This of course happens at the expense of people, but it is a fact. Remember what was established by the Chinese economic miracle? The governments of many countries have used the mechanism of inflation to fight with the competitors on the world market.
Hahaha you must be gossiping how come the production cost could be cheaper? When the raw material and the workforce needed are at a high rate how can one claim that the production cost will be cheap? As many of us are well aware of the market no one will believe what you have said. Or if you have any document evidence I will appreciate it
You seem to have misunderstood something here

Obviously, the poster you replied to refers to costs when compared to the costs which production of the same goods incurs in other countries (more specifically, in the countries where these goods are exported). If you take this aspect into account, then the claim is totally legit. Devaluation of local currency makes locally produced goods cheaper in terms of currency for which these goods are sold since the costs such as wages are still borne and paid in local currency, i.e. they remain the same. But if they remain the same, then depreciating local currency necessarily makes the exported goods cheaper in the currency of the importing country (provided all other things are equal and remain the same, of course)

Japan is a rich country so multimillion investment is a not really a tough problem. And i dont see any tax problems if even they would adopt it because its the country that integrated it. And probably btc would again be famous and still another big problem on those transaction delays and i think there are other blockchains that is being created now if i recall?

I didn't report him and didn't check other posts of this user but head hunters may get interested in this case

Look at this ^^^ and this vvv

According to me Sports Betting is the Best Form Of Gambling Because If You Bet Your Money in Sports then You can Use Your Knowledge and Experience to Predict the Best Results But If You are Playing Games Like Slots, Blackjack and Roulette then You can't Able to Use Your Knowledge Or Experience to Predict the Results So I Prefer to Do Sports Betting.

According to me in Gambling You Just Play Games Like Slots, Blackjack, Roulette and Gamble Your Money On Them But In Betting You Bet Your Money on Sports And Also There is no Big Difference Between them Because Betting is a Part Of Gambling And also there is a Difference that If You Bet on Sports You Can Use Your Knowledge But in Gambling Games Like Roulette and Slots You can't Able to Use Your Knowledge.

According to me Trading is the Best Source Now a Days to Grow Your Bitcoins But You can also Use Other Ways Like You can Buy Digital Goods that are Valuable and You can Sell them at High Price Or You can Try Out Lending Out Bitcoins to other Users and Grow Your Bitcoins and Also there is another way that is Helpful to Earn Bitcoins is Signature Campign But Never Post In Forum Only For Earning Because It's a Forum, here You Need to Help Other People.

sure, do not click on any suspicious link, i was naive and i finished banned on 6 accounts, so first make conversation
then accept link of someone over PM, there are hackers and phishers harvesting logins around, do not think admins do it,
i am for that opinion too, owners control our luck, so we can only work a lot ( many tries ) in order to earn by winning some,

Although this user hasn't been active for a couple of months, he does have a signature and hasn't been perma banned.

It doesn't matter I guess. For you to gamble you just need luck for you to win. And when it comes to gambling it involves the element of risks. Gambling is very appealing to a new beginners especially if they have all the got of luck and willing to take risks.

And as long as you have a basic understanding, you can start to enjoy most forms of betting and gaming with the potential to win a significant amount of money while doing so.

We can't predict the specific time if we base it in an actual probability of todays bitcoin's growing body of price impact to the market of digital currency. All I know now is bitcoin market demand is getting stronger and you can't control it eventually, because if it happens that current situation of bitcoin next year is much better than today; it's really possible that pirce of $5000 can be achieved after 1 year of price movement.

Joachim Low has left many of his big stars at home this summer, naming an experimental squad, but that did not stop his team rolling through the group stage with seven points.

I have found another one...

I created my new strategy and that is to stay away from cash games and play only poker freeroll tournaments because when in freeroll get so many luck I come to cash games and some idiot get last 2 hands with dumb cards and he win my money.
avoid cash games means you starting the game for free only and actually i have been a part of free roll tournament several times ago and most of them only playing safe with only dare to call if they had good card but it's hard to be the champion of free tournaments of poker because most of the participant also had their own strategy

I made my new strategy for staying away from cash games and play only poker freeroll tournaments freeroll on because when it gets so much luck I came to cash games and there's some stupidity that I do, they finally get the last 2 hands with stupid cards and she wins my money. to avoid the cash in this game you have to start the game free, but in fact I have become part of the free roll tournament some time ago and most of them just play it safe with only dared to call if they have a good card but it is very difficult to be the champion of free poker tournaments because most participants also had their own strategy

He changed word or two, but actually it is the same as first quoted post(s)

Another one... a newbie who is just starting off.

Bitcoin the currency was the first of its kind: a global, decentralized cryptocurrency. While this sounds strange, it actually makes sense. As the world becomes less dependent on states and borders, the internet is a shared space where anyone in the world can communicate or create business. A universal currency not dependent on any single country makes more sense if you view the internet as its own nation-state. Just like temperature, distance, and weight are measured the same way across the world, why shouldn’t there be one unit of account for value. that's why peoples use Bitcoin

it is quiet making some move to become know by someone that has no knowledge about bitcoin there is some site that is explaining of it but what all people think is always wrong so what do we need some establishment then influence for some that is powerful for them to believe and accept this.

If cryptocurrencies outpace cash in terms of usage, traditional currencies will lose value without any means of recourse. Should cryptocurrencies take over entirely, new infrastructure would have to be developed in order to allow the world to adapt. There would inevitably be difficulties with the transition, as cash could become incompatible quite quickly, leaving some people with lost assets. Established financial institutions would likely have to scramble to change their ways.

I spotted a hard-to-identify copycat poster called zollyharvan who seems to translate posts back-and-forth in an attempt not to be detected. I noticed after he repeated one of my posts I wrote with my (now hacked) de_xt account on the same thread, making little sense.  A quick review of his post history reveals he has been doing the same for some time now.

My original post:

For those who didn't notice, finally Bech32 address format (the native format for SegWit addresses) has been merged into bitcoin core.

What this means is that from now on it is possible to generate and use native segwit addresses from within core. Using these addresses have a number of advantages.  To number some, they have error correction and hinting built-in, are optimized to be human readable, and using them takes less bytes on the blockchain  (thus lowering fees even more) when compared with segwit P2SH wrapped addresses (those starting with 3...).

Wallet support for Bech32 is non-existent right now. But this is a step further in the right direction.

https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/739pjb/bech32_address_format_merged_into_bitcoin_core/


Copied post (using slightly different words but with same sense):

those who are unaware that the Bech32 address format (the original format for the SegWit address) have been merged into the bitcoin center
this probably means to generate and use the original address segwit from within its core. Using this address has a number of advantages. For some numbers, they have sound errors and built-in instructions, optimized for easy reading,

Wallet for Bech32 does not exist at this time. But this is a step further in the right direction.

Another example from other thread:

Original:

We can't discount the possibility of forks happening, but I doubt any will be called Bitcoin Silver. The name implies that it's inferior to Bitcoin Gold, so people looking to diversify would consider Bitcoin Gold instead. There's also Litecoins, which are basically Bitcoin Silver.

Copied:

We can not underestimate the possibility of a fork, but I do not believe it will be called Bitcoin Silver. The name implies that it's lower than Bitcoin Gold, so people who want to do an examination of the truth of the report will consider Bitcoin Gold instead.

I gamble in my local community and not in the casinos because in my country the government does not allow gambling and it is a crime. Therefore I gamble only my locality. The game is different from that of casinos and it needs lot of skills to win bet in such gambling. There is nothing of luck in gambling like my one. One should be very careful while gambling otherwise losing is compulsory.

If someone have time I am sure we could find more accounts.

I missed this one:
Try try again but for wining with fear gambling need luck. If you are lucky then you will make lots of money with gambling otherwise you will lose continuously and may your wallet get empty due to losing your money. So try to win your lost bitcoin is mandatory to keep gambling and to reverse your lost money. If you have no skills of gambling then you should not gamble because you will never win.
Try again and again for winning the bet. Don’t fear gambling is totally luck.

Losing 50 bitcoin means losing all my property and everything. If I lost 50 bitcoin I will be mental patient because 50 bitcoin means the richest person in the community and if a richest person come to the road due to no money then you should think of his condition. I will gamble such huge money. it is beyond my limitations and if gamble I will look my pocket for gambling and will never accede that amount.

Post under post, same shit posted it is obviously abuser like all accounts above.



EDIT*
Returning to the game is very important for winning your lost money. if you have not enough money to bit again and again then I will suggest not to bit lot of money at one time. Bit little money and of you lost you will have more money to play again and at last you will win. It is also not possible to lose every time. But be patient and cool while gamble and look at the conditions which are your favor or not.

Yes I agree with you. One should try his best to return to the game by winning his lost money and gambling is such an addiction that if you lost some money you will keen to win backs your lost money on any cost. I think gambling needs a lot of skills and techniques how to play and how to win and without proper skills I suggest not to gamble and not to lose your hard earn money so easily.

Yes I also heard that many countries have started bitcoin in their local markets as their local currency, like Japan, India, South Africa, Vietnam etc. this is a positive step towards the success of bitcoin and prevailing bitcoin all over the world. I think that if most of the people involved in bitcoin the price of bitcoin will also increase and the investors will make a huge profit through bitcoin in the near future.

Doesn't matter whether he is or isn't because they're all word salad nonsense (though he's probably doing it manually). They remind me of those shitposters who were just repeating stuff like 'bitcoin is good because you can make profit and profit is good and that's why bitcoin is good' crap over and over in an attempt to make it look like they were writing a few sentences:


Bitcoin is a future currency you will invest you get the profit with out loss but you will know the bitcoin process. you will learn to improve  business process. Bitcoin is help to start the new business you will know how to get the profit. So will start the business then you will improve your life and future business improve meant.

Yes I agree with you its both you can use it as a currency as well as you can use it as asset because bitcoin is a digital currency you can use it for buying things and also you can keep it for a long time for investment purpose I use bitcoin in both way I am using it for daily expanse and I also keep it go high price when the price go high then I sell it out to get extra money.

Well in my opinion it’s both you can use it as a asset and as well as you can use it as currency because if you want to invest in bitcoin so it can give you a very good profit because this invest is an asset for someone and when you want to do daily trade you can also get a profit and as well as bitcoin can be used for daily expanse in your daily life.

Well in my opinion it’s both it can work as an asset and as well as it works as currency because you can buy things from bitcoin and if you want to use it as an asset so you can I’m also doing both when I need something so I use it to buy things and I also keep it for investment also when the price is down so then I buy and when the price go high then I sell t and get good profit.

They are all part of brickblock signature campaign

will edit shortly this one with something interesting.

This one:
Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency. It is used by a lot of people. The user of bitcoin is increasing at a high rate. It's being using so widely. Now we can buy any service with bitcoin. We can get or give online payment through bitcoin. It's been used at too much way that it's seemed like it's a asset. But it's not a good thing. Because it will cause various problem. We should treat bitcoin just as a crypto coin, nothing more than it.

This(from lauda's reference just to show it is the same shit):
Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency. It works in online. As it is a online coin, hackers can attack this system. If there are some security problem of this system, the hackers can attack the system. Now a days the hackers can do any harm if the security is weak. They can destroy the whole system also. Bitcoin can also be harmed by the banks. They can pressure the authority to shut the system down as they are in loss for bitcoin.

I have strong belief on bitcoin because it is gonna make us rich soon.Like you told it will be accepted by all people in less than a decade so we have to prepare now itself to have more benefits.We can see that bitcoin price is keeps increasing everyday sometimes there is a bump that is the nature of bitcoin but it will recover soon bro.
The bitcoin has some benefits to be our future currency,Regular currencies depend on governments which fail ocassionally. Such events either cause hyperinflation or a complete collapse of a currency, which can wipe out savings of a lifetime in day. Bitcoin is not regulated by any one government. It's a virtual global currency.Untraceable,This is both a benefit and a risk for Bitcoin.So bitcoin has bright future and i'm totally believing it.

Untraceable. This is both a benefit and a risk for Bitcoin. The benefit is that you don't have to be afraid of any organization of being able to trace the source of your funds. This is a clear benefit in many areas of the world because governements that are supposed to guard against fraud are actually defrauding people by taking their savings partially or fully. Regarding risks I will discuss them in the next section.

Edit... And actually one more.

On 18 August 2008, the domain name bitcoin.org was registered. In November that year, a link to a paper authored by Satoshi Nakamoto titled Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System was posted to a cryptography mailing list.Nakamoto implemented the bitcoin software as open source code and released it in January 2009. The identity of Nakamoto remains unknown, though many have claimed to know it.

In January 2009, the bitcoin network came into existence with the release of the first open source bitcoin client and the issuance of the first bitcoins,with Satoshi Nakamoto mining the first block of bitcoins ever (known as the genesis block), which had a reward of 50 bitcoins. Embedded in the coinbase of this block was the text:

There is an opinion that 7617$ per BTC was the top of this year and currently Bitcoin is going down. There are a lot of passion around new fork, the market and exchange must be ready to support three different fork of Bitcoin in November, the original chain, 2x and the new chain of Bitcoin with the best PoW. People are not sure again about their assets and selling their founds, that's why the price is going down. But I doubt to see any big drop like before the August's fork.

https://medium.com/@CobraBitcoin/there-may-be-3-chains-in-novemeber-true-bitcoiners-will-never-surrender-238373f08035

The market and exchanges should be prepared to support three different forks of Bitcoin this November. The original chain, the 2X chain, and the new Bitcoin chain with a better PoW. As soon as the new PoW hard fork binaries are released on Bitcoin.org, I intend to fully commit to supporting that chain and calling it “Bitcoin”, even if hash rate returns to the original chain at a later date.

This guy has actually taken some effort.
He has changed "new Bitcoin chain" to "new chain of Bitcoin".  :P

Without replay protection, new transactions will be equally valid on both chains as well. This means that these transactions can be copied or “replayed,” from one chain to the other, in other words, for them to happen on both which is commonly referred as replay attack. If you send B2X to someone, you might accidentally send him BTC as well and vice versa because they can do a replay attack with the help of a miner in both chains.

There's one right now that keeps posting shit like "This is great idea.  How no one thought of this before?"

All by brand new accounts, all posts are very similar.   Someone must be creating these new accounts, but why they would do this I am baffled by.   I keep reporting the posts as I notice them, but hopefully the mods will be on the lookout.

I have noticed them too, where they shitpost in the Bitcoin discussion section. I have reported some already, and I definitely hope their accounts will be trashed alongside their shit posts.

Look out for posts like these too -> 'This is awesome idea. How before no one made it?'

Edit; Damn, I reported dozens of these bot accounts but they keep popping up. :-X

I've been reporting them too, but I'm wondering if it's worth it.

Are these unsophisticated bots still around because the mods are busy trying to catch them all, or are they just being completely ignored by admin?

They seem to post the same set of generic text under different usernames so they're pretty easy to find. They stick out like a sore thumb in established coin threads, because they often ask about ICOs and bounties - for a 5 year old coin...

Some examples which appear in multiple threads under multiple usernames:

  • I follow you on twitter! Waiting for some great news!
  • As for me, very smart solution for this industry
  • I'll have to deeply analyze this project - feels so solid!
  • I've already seen some similar ICO, why are you different?
  • Great useful project! Good luck!
  • Great idea. Excellent team! Btw how is my income calculated? (provide an example here as well)
  • Let us take the opportunity to invest in this great project. In addition to a promising and necessary branch in the new times, the Team is committed to take us very far with

And so on, and so on. ::)

What's the end game here? To build rep then sell off the accounts? A precursor to a massive spam attack?

ERC-20 tokens defines a common list of rules for all Ethereum tokens to follow, meaning that this particular token empowers developers of all types to accurately predict how new tokens will function within the larger Ethereum system. The impact that ERC-20 therefore has on developers is massive, as projects do not need to be redone each time a new token is released. Rather, they are designed to be compatible with new tokens, provided those tokens adhere to the rules. Developers of new tokens have by-and-large observed the ERC-20 rules, meaning that most of the tokens released through Ethereum initial coin offerings are ERC-20 compliant.

Re: What is Bitcoin mining?
November 06, 2017, 02:43:23 PM
   
It is a process by which transactions are verified and added to the public ledger, known as the block chain, and also the means through which new bitcoin are released.People with access to the internet and suitable hardware can participate in mining.  This mining process involves compiling recent transactions into blocks and trying to solve a computationally difficult puzzle.

At the bottom right of every post there's a link to report it to a mod. You can also view the account's post history to get an idea of how many times the same message has been spammed.

The Solution Is
 fee problem may also temporarily resolve by itself. In that case, Bitcoin may see just temporary spikes in activity, but in the long run users would be urged to be more economical with transactions. Also, some additional hashing power may clear the backlog for a while, allowing most transactions to go through.

So it even remains unknown if Bitcoin fees could be reliably tokenized, or other payment options offered. For now, the only option are limited transaction accelerators proposed by mining pools. The rest of the mystery concerns the user behavior of Bitcoin holders, and whether they would have an incentive to move the funds often.

Notice that the user has started a new line after "the solution is".
Dead giveaway.  ;D

Example 1
Bitcoin is a virtual currency. It doesn’t exist in the kind of physical form that the currency & coin we’re used to exist in. It doesn’t even exist in a form as physical as Monopoly money. It’s electrons – not molecules.

Copied from
http://burgessforensics.com/what-is-bitcoin-how-is-it-different-than-real-money-and-how-can-i-get-some/

Example 2
Anonymity, that is mostly the reasons. It is hard to trust really for the government with something so trivial and something that they can't regulate in their point of view. Though good example for this is Russia which banned Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies but look at them now who is recognizing and legalizing Bitcoin like Japan because they see the potential and can truly help them in the financial crisis they have been facing. I hope that other countries my see it as well.

Copied from
https://forum.primedice.com/topic/7247-why-bitcoin-is-not-supported-in-some-countries/

Example 3

Banks fear bitcoin, because they see its potential. Many banks have looked into the blockchain technology and are trying to replicate it...purely because the technology is so powerful and out-does all banks by people preference by far. The only reason bitcoin has not taken over yet, is because of the peoples unawareness of it.

With current volatility, it can certainly seem that way. It's definitely a bubble that has grown very fast. Only time will tell I suppose, egulation being the big one to Watch out for. Perhaps regulators can make it a bubble if they so wish.

I started a thread a few days back and checking through it I noticed that he had copy pasted one of my own comments in the thread. Not even being subtle about it, the full comment with no changes whatsoever.

My original post:

Not looking for specific projects necessarily, just a category that has the potential overall for the most growth. As I mentioned, I like privacy and AR/VR projects, but are there any other categories that have the potential to stand out? I guess finance is another one with massive potential, but think it's too early to tell which projects will emerge as the winners down the line.

All of his posts are just copied And he just add with Emoticon

Example 1

:) They are not scam, I'm also using it for quite a while now and before I use it i also ask someone if this trading site was legit. I think they currently have problems in withdrawal on some of the token/coins. Like for example ETH, but now ETH issue with regards to withdrawal is already fixed and you can already withdraw your funds.

:)  Yes this is possible and more than $50,000 will reach the price of Bitcoin, if China gets back on cryptocurrency and we all know how rich China are a lot of waiting investors on their country are waiting a perfect timing for entry. If that happens we will see Bitcoin to the moon. :)

Investing means buying an asset that actually creates products, services or cashflow, such as a profitable business or a rentable piece of real estate, for an extended period of time. An investment is something that has intrinsic value – that is, it would be worth owning from a financial perspective, even if you could never sell it.

To answer why bitcoin has become so big, we need to separate the usefulness of the underlying technology called “blockchain” from the mania of people turning bitcoin into a big dumb lottery. Blockchain is simply a nifty software invention (which is open-source and free for anyone to use), whereas bitcoin is just one well-known way to use it.

It gives me more joy when an older account is busted for copy-pasting.
That way, the swamp is slowly getting cleaned.

The original

I think a lot of people know about bitcoin since it's in the mainstream and in different ads in social medias and different sites. I believe that most of the people around the world heard of it already but not all of them paid much attention and interest for it because to understant it, we would be needing a lot of explanations and explorations.

To be honest, I am not well known to myself. In other words, I still haven't discovered my passion and hence, myself. So, if doing something that gives your immense pleasure is the definition of a "hobby", I have many. I have used all of them to make money too. The list would include teaching, writing about random things (only to keep them to myself), motivating others even when I am in depression, and enjoying being an attention seeker. Weird. But true. People see me as a simple person. But "complicated" is my second name.

Litecoin is the 5th largest cryptocurrency, with a market cap of over $12 billion. It has been one of the best performing cryptocurrencies in the last 12 months. There are many predictions that say Litecoin’s growth will be higher than that of Bitcoin. Nobody really knows what will happen.

Another example
When you earn a million in crypto, it is certain that many people will have an interest in you. So do not talk about it to others, especially if you have millions of holders. Of course many people are crazy and this may even be the reason for the authorities to know it. You can just get a case of money loundering here. You should probably do it without withdrawing it completely. So you can not guess

It is very difficult to get on any of the cryptocurrency websites. I had watched this from afar and asked friends and people about it and The most I ever got in response is "I've heard of it and not really sure what it is".
I have tried to get on Binance-I got on but my phone won't support there app. My phone says the app designer is not trusted.
I've tried Gemini but I'm still waiting for approval(over a week).
I've trie Polyniex. I got on but it won't support a mobile app and will only let me sign up with a webcam(which I don't have).
I've tried to get on Blocktrades but my phone or safari or something won't even bring up the website. So I borrowed my son's phone and was able to get on the website but once I got near completion it gave me another lock symbol. No success there either.

Been off for a few days, come back to some quiet threads littered with posts by bots. The ones which regurgitate old posts are harder to spot than the generic "this coin must have a good future, when is the ICO" spam because they're usually on topic.

Has there been any official response to this useless influx? Is BCT admin overwhelmed by all of the spam, or just doesn't care?

They must do it either to constantly bump a thread or they can eventually join a signature campaign and receive small amounts of alts for their shit post. I recently reported a copied post of mine and I was messaged by the admin asking me to send him link of the copied post. I thought to myself are they having to send a message and ask for proof every-time someone reports a copied post?? Seems kind of tedious if you ask me.

Then I suggested some type of incentive system to help clean up the forum from this stuff and the admin just said if you want to help clean it up make a thread about it....they must just be completely overwhelmed by it AND not care at the same time.

Just like the post in here from botony and the other guy who link and find these spammers....they should be rewarded somehow for that.
