The facist scum are once again waging war on our most basic rights and freedoms.

Please share..

edit -

Thanks for visiting the crowdfunding campaign we've put together for our dad. It's been a hell of a 3 year journey and we're still going through it. The new final verdict date is January 22, 2016 (3 years, 2 months after arrest).

The Situation
In case you don't yet know the story, on November 21, 2012 our father, Gregory Alan Elliott, was arrested, jailed for 3 days, and charged with criminal harassment for essentially disagreeing with, debating, and calling attention to brutal cyber-mobbing campaign lead by a social-media savvy, political operative on Twitter. Two months later, he was charged with two additional counts of criminal harassment by two friends and colleagues of the original complainant. They accused him of also harassing them on Twitter during the same Aug 2012 - Nov 21 2012 time period, but for some reason, only came forward in January 2013. Interestingly enough, after the first two complainants took the stand during trial, the third complainant was pulled by the crown prosecutor literally the morning she was supposed to take the stand herself.

During the course of the trial, as we did our own investigation, lots of information was discovered that led our dad's lawyer, us, and many others to believe that a criminal conspiracy may have been committed to fraudulently charge our dad.

In court the complainants and the OIC admitted that he never said anything threatening or sexual towards them. Yet as a result of these baseless criminal charges, he suffered severe financial, professional, emotional, and psychological devastation.  Shortly after getting bail on Friday Nov 23 2012, he was informed that after roughly 17 years working as a graphic designer, he was being fired from his job without cause. He received no official reason for his termination. But the fact that there were articles posted about him with his mugshots in a few prominent Toronto news media (written by admitted friends of the complainants) literally the day and days after he was arrested alleging he was a harasser, it seemed odd that he was fired at this time as well. He was 52 when this happened, and it was likely he would've worked that job until retirement at 67.

To make matters worse, because his bail conditions prohibited him from using the Internet and computers for the duration of the trial, he was unable to use the tools of his trade and has been unemployable since. Too date, he has paid $50,000 in legal fees, and owes roughly $40,000 more that he is unable to pay at this time.

And if this wasn't sad enough, the only reason he was able to cover his living and legal expenses over the last 3 years was because he received and cashed his pension from work. So, he's essentially been spending what was supposed to be his retirement savings on living and legal expenses since.

To say this has been devastating for him and our whole family would be an understatement.
4  Economy / Scam Accusations / The Cryptsy Deceptions on: December 13, 2015, 08:47:21 PM
Who are the people really behind Cryptsy and it's allied/ cloned exchanges ?

What can we do to hold them morally and legally accountable for the frauds they have perpetrated on the crypto community ?

This story is so twisted and convoluted that it is difficult to know where to begin. So lets start with this most recent revelation regarding the owner and operator of Cryptsy, Paul and/or Mark Vernon. (see next post)

Please know that if you are a known Cryptsy insider/ collaborator and/or in an obvious past /present confict of interest, you will be ignored.

As for everyone else I look forward to hearing any and all opinions and information on this matter.

11  Economy / Scam Accusations / RESOLVED ! (sort of..) Tigerdirect dot ca Bait n Switch SHENNANIGANS ! on: November 28, 2014, 09:01:39 AM
What happened::
October 14, 2014
- I paid the then BTC equivilent of $80.37 (taxes included), for a 16mp camera listed on their site.
- Immediately after, I called the customer service 800 number and asked why I wasn't able to update my phone number online. The rep claimed my current order was not visible on his system and that I must place a NEW order with the new phone number, if I wanted it updated. As the discusison continued, it was becoming obvious that I was being toyed with, so I promptly told him off while accusing him of using shadey upsell tactics, then hung up.

October 15, 2014
- They cancelled the order claiming that it was no longer in stock and that, as per company policy, a store credit or Visa (then Bitpay) gift card would be issued instead. I refused to accept those options and informed them about the consumer protection laws they were violating.

October 18, 2014
- Customer service response.

October 27, 2014
- After much ado about nothing, with regards to our communications over the previous 2 weeks, this slap in the face appeared in my inbox.

- The same camera reappeared, as "in store only".

November 4, 2014
- The Visa gift card has become a Bitpay gift certificate/card.

November 16, 2014
- NO respect for the customer what so ever.

November 17, 2014
- Another fake delivery notice. UPS shows no record of either of the alleged deliveries.

- This Reddit user had a similar experience..

In short, stay away from these guys as they are just as dirty with their in store bait.

Yes, I used some overly descriptive words such as, "fascist", "maggot", "fascist maggot asshole", ect., but did not come anywhere close to earning my $80 worth. Grin

So much for keeping this a "family show".

12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Is your pool merge mining other alts and not telling you ? on: November 03, 2014, 01:44:34 PM
After recently learning about LTC pools merge mining DOGE, I couldn't help but wonder ..

How easy would it be for a greedy (insert your coin here) pool operator to mine blocks on any blockchain of his/her choosing ? And not tell you. Shocked

Could this be how so many shitcoins are able to achieve such high hashrates at launch ?

This has the potential to become the biggest and longest running scam, dwarfing GOX and/or BFL.

To be determined.

PM/Chat Logs:

Hi again..

I am no longer worried about the multi pools raiding this coin because of how few coins they will make per visit. Even with 24 ZTC per block, the users will demand its removal from the list for various reasons.

ZTC would have to be extremely over valued for this to be otherwise. Wink

Please go to reddit and vote up the ZenithCoin request to include in coinedup.

Give me a legitimate reason to, and I will. Smiley

When will the 1000 ghash go online ?


Because if you don't, then there's no way to cash out.

The 1000 ghash promo has been suspended for lack of interest.

Additional Notes:

I've wasted some/all of my 600-1700 khash over several weeks mining this scam.

After ignoring the ZTC miners/investors for many months, solracx is now desperately trying to regain support for Zenithcoin by essentially bribing people to vote for ZTC on various exchanges.


Is solracx FrictionlessCoin, aka Carlos Perez ?

hmmm... I thought FC was Perez ...

If you folks are looking for a coin with similar characteristics as NXT and doesn't smell like a scam, then consider NEX.

NEX will be the complete opposite of Nxt.

Free - You can acquire the coin on IPO for free.

Fair -  Distributed to as many people as possible.

Secure - No more people losing wallets because their passphrase gets hacked.

Robust - No more out of memory errors.

Fast - No more waiting days to have coins sent to an exchange.

Clean -  Squeeky clean reputation as compared to the rat infested Nxt community.

Fun - "My Interest, You Havz it"!

Known Author - Carlos Perez (not some anonymous person)

What happened::

muddafudda has refused to refund 3 of the 5 LTC I paid him for what turned out to be a copy n paste, premined, scrypt coin. eg. I specifically asked for a fair launch sha-256 coin. I paid him even though the coin's specs were not what I requested them to be, trusting that he would make the neccessary adjustments. After 2-3 days, I got buyers remorse and informed muddafudda that I wanted out due to time constraints, among other reasons. I also trusted that he would be fair about things, so I initially left it up to him to decide how much of the 5 LTC was to be returned. After a week without a response, I pm'd him asking for 3 out of the 5 LTC paid.

In light of all this, I am now requesting that the entire 5 LTC be returned.

No premine, fair start. Zero TX fees.

Id like to have the diff start at 0.021 - 0.21 so as to discourage easy-mining.

Block to block diff adjustments..

35 blocks and 5k ZET sounds more reasonable. Tongue

I got it pretty close to what you wanted. Stole the logo off what you sent me.

Here is the source

Here is the windows qt link

I have 2 nodes up, addnode= is the checkpoint server.

I had to mine 50 blocks to set up the checkpoint server.


Yeah, whatever.

If you need it tweaked, just change the code and I can rehash the genesis block. Make sure you tell me before release and ask any questions if you dont understand, forking is a bitch.

I picked cgb as its stable and you can follow the patches if need be. Current diff is "difficulty" : 0.01410277, at block 54.

Here is my whole vegancoin wallet with the blocks in the chain and wallet. 10 coins stay in the checkpoint server. You will need a checkpoint update in about 8 weeks.

My nodes are still up. If you want a clean chain with zero blocks mined let me know as ill have to change the code and remove a checkpoint for the server. (24hr turnaround, very tired). This also reduces stability in the chain but its your call.

When you happy and dont need anything changed, send some ltc here. LTC LL1TYuFw3564kgRzf8KK6vkAiSwnHMRVso

Just tuned in on the part about stability. How so ?

And don't rush anything/ put yourself out. lol.. Launch won't be for another 2-3 or 7 days as I wanna be sure everything works and that the word gets out.

May as well get this out of the way.. Roll Eyes

Yo Cheesy

Sorry to say but, I'm gonna have to back out from any involvement with Vegancoin. I have waaay too much on my plate and I need to learn a bit about coding before trying anything this technical.

The graveyard of shytecoins keeps growing.. the last thing I want is to be known for sprouting another IFC. Wink

I know you have put some effort into it, so I'll let you decide how much of the 5 LTC should be returned.


BlunderToe says he is vegan.. maybe I should run it by him ?



something tells me this coins-e thing is gonna blow up in alot of well known people's faces....

No worries, will get back to you shortly.

Did you mean.. in a short week ? Grin

Please return 3 LTC and we'll call it even.


I know you have put some effort into it, so I'll let you decide how much of the 5 LTC should be returned.

You sent me $50 worth of LTC at the time, now you want $135 worth of LTC back. At a loss of $85 and my time??

I'm not asking its fiat value. lol Even if we were, 2 LTC / $85 is pretty damn good for a premined copy and paste job. Which btw, was not supposed to be a premined coin. I was very clear about that. Just based on that alone, I didn't get what we agreed on and should/could be asking for the entire 5 LTC, but I'm not.

Please refund 3 of the 5 LTC I sent you.


Quite simply I will not give away money andif you go public I will post the response where it was up to me how much to return

In other words don't ever try extort me or anyone again

I would have given you the $ value back but since you have been an arse you will get nothing. In your words "I'll leave it up to you to decide". I decide nothing.

Additional Notes:

When muddafudda approached me about setting me up with my own alt, he insisted that he would remain anonymous, thus not wanting anyone to associate him with this coin. He also bragged about having many coins with 'candygirls' acting as devs.

Uses the name Memecoin, when using the Cryptsy troll box.

I am very interested to hear from others who have had similar dealings with this character.
