1  Economy / Reputation / Foxpup's sexual reputation thread [NSFW] on: February 17, 2021, 10:34:01 AM
In regards to the recent negative trust left by kruglikov (which is plainly retaliation for the negative trust I left him for threatening vigilante violence against Vod):
Quote
Self admitted Gay. Offering the "free" pictures of his ass. Call boy and a whore for rent. Follow the ref for more details.
I think I'd best point out a few things, lest people get the wrong idea about me.

First of all, I'm not gay (not that there's anything wrong with that), nor have I ever claimed to be. (Unless you want to argue that my gender confusion makes me technically a lesbian.) The "gay" in "gay porn" refers to the intended audience, not the performers. I know this may be disappointing for some people to learn, but many of your favourite gay porn stars are not actually gay. Sad

Second, contrary to the scare quotes around the word "free", the pornography I've produced is, in fact, free, and not some sort of bizarre sex scam. That's right: free as in free beer; nobody is required to pay money to see pictures of my furry butthole (or other holes for that matter, but the question of my gender will have to wait for another thread). Such as this nice one right here, which I'm presenting purely as proof of the pro-bonor nature of my pornography, and not as some sort of puerile statement against my detractors, because as much as I'd like to insult them by pointing my exposed posterior in their direction, I am above such things: d.furaffinity.net/art/foxpup/1549385093/1549385024.foxpup_wall.png (link is not safe for work, and contrary to the expectations of consumers of mainstream pornography, is not pay-walled either) (Note also that that picture is from before I became a vixen, in case there's any confusion as to what kind of gayness is invovled.)



Third, I am not, nor have I ever been, a prostitute (not that there's anything wrong with that, either). At the risk of causing additional disappointment, my arse is not in fact available for rent, not even in exchange for merits, despite what you may have heard about what really goes on in the Merit Cycling Club, where any rumoured foxhole shenanigans are just a free bonus. Wink

(Self-moderated because I regrettably don't expect it take very long for this thread to be filled with all sorts of nasty homophobic and/or sexist insults/threats that I can't trust the mods to actually care about. And yes, I know it's considered unbecoming of a fox or vixen to be concerned about their sexual reputation, but this is starting to get a little out of hand. Undecided)

Did the OP's name always look like this?



In his profile it appears as palle11.
It appears to be spreading (like some sort of contagion?) to other users they've had contact with. I thought we agreed such jokes would be in poor taste. Sad

@theymos, please tell me I'm mistaken.
3  Other / Off-topic / Is Foxpup still a vixen? 🦊 ♀ 🔞 (New website with OBSERVABLE EVIDENCE!) [NSFW] on: March 18, 2020, 06:20:10 PM
In commemoration of the technically-not-quite first anniversary of the Merit Cycling Club and the just-past first anniversary of me being made a vixen, I'm proud to present what I'm euphemistically calling OBSERVABLE EVIDENCE that I am indeed still a vixen (at least where it counts). C******unter, eat your heart out. (Merit cyclers and other foxhole felchers, of course, get to eat out a little more than that. Wink)



See it all at LoyceV's hot new website:
🦊 IsFoxpupStillANSFWVixen.today 🦊
(Link is obviously very much not safe for work, unless you work as a lifeguard at a nude beach or something.)
Evidentiary image copyright 2020 Foxpup. Model is over 18 years of age.



Now everyone can stop being confused about my gender and start being confused about their own sexuality. Smiley

Local rules: Talking dirty allowed, transmisogynistic hate speech not allowed. Normally I wouldn't need to make a rule about that, but you all know how it is...

Continued from this post to avoid derailing that topic further.



actmyname is the only user I trust that you distrust...

So your distrust of me is simply retaliatory distrust of others.

Nice one.
No, there's more to it than that. For example:

BTW - I see you pay suchmoon to wear you profile pic.  Did you also sweeten the deal by paying suchmoon to also distrust me? (Be honest now)

suchmoon normally flies off the handle with his "last straw" comment every other day at randoms then reads further and calms down, but if you paid suchmoon to "distrust me" then that would explain his recent change in behaviour.
I do not pay anyone to trust or distrust anyone else. This ability of yours to see conspiracies where none exist is a large part of why I distrust your judgement.

be sure to check my trust wall feedback of you in a little while.
As I said before, it's nothing personal, and I don't really understand why you insist on making it personal.
5  Other / Meta / Bitcointalk.org 10th Anniversary 💓 🦊 🔞 Burlesque Pageant and Revue! [NSFW] on: October 27, 2019, 12:12:37 PM
This is the official NSFW discussion thread for my eyebrow-raising entry in 10th anniversary art contest. Please don't merit this post; merit the original post instead.

Since this is a celebration for the whole forum, there are no local rules and everyone's invited (even The-One-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named). Just remember that all global rules remain in effect, in particular Rule 10: No embedded NSFW images. Links only. Label any such links as NSFW even though that's probably redundant.

With that out of the way, let's get this party started!

Since it seems nobody else knows how to properly celebrate such a momentous occasion as this, here's my long-awaited entry (in more ways than one). Admittedly not the most directly related to bitcointalk.org, but we could hardly celebrate its 10th anniversary without everything depicted here, could we now? Grin Be sure not to miss the afterparty in the foxhole, with "all-access" passes available for merit/trust gangsters. Wink

Note: To avoid derailing this thread with what I'm sure will be many questions, comments, and raised eyebrows, please post all such remarks in the thread I will create for just that purpose.

And party hard!*

6  Economy / Reputation / Time's up for DT members who left negative feedback for Thule on: May 20, 2019, 08:15:28 AM
Local rules: This is strictly between Thule and those who left him negative trust, though posts by others are allowed if they are on-topic. Posts about any other trust drama are off-topic and will be deleted.

Am demanding DT members to remove false negative feedbacks within 2 weeks from today or to provide proof of your claims that i scammed someone or there is strong evidence i tried to scam someone.

Since i'm now marked on every thread as scammer DT members are aware of their special power to discredit and defame people by misusing it.

Since i never scammed or tried to scam anyone and also received negative tags which according to theymos are a clear abuse i demand from these DT members to proof that i scammed or strong evidence i tried to scam someone.

Should you not be able to proof these claims and keep tagging me as scammer and being fully aware of it i will hold you liable for it.

Since i got the full adresses of 2 DT members you can imagine where i will start to show proof to DT members that i won't accept false negative feedbacks anymore which are discrediting me as scammer in a public place on every of my threads.

Well, it's been two weeks, and it seems nobody has given in to Thule's demands. How's that lawsuit coming, Thule?
7  Economy / Reputation / @Bazinga442: Who or what is ALUU? on: February 05, 2019, 02:14:18 PM
According to the trust feedback I got from Bazinga442, I'm an "ALUU pet", whatever that is. The false trust doesn't bother me, but I would like to know what it means. It must mean something, since Bazinga442 has given that same feedback to several others, but Google, Urban Dictionary, and forum search all come up empty. Is this something I'm supposed to know as DT? Was Lauda's "gang" supposed to send me a memo about this? I feel like I'm missing something here. Huh

Since cryptohunter has taken to using self-moderated threads to delete posts containing facts that conflict with his warped opinions, I'm reposting this here, as I feel it's an important and relevant fact that sane people might be interested in knowing and possibly discussing or debating.



If i tell a criminal that has stolen my money to give it back or else I will tell the police.

That is revealing a secret they have to do them harm.  That is not blackmail that is reporting a crime you thick turd.
Putting it in large letters doesn't make it true. What you're describing is, indeed, blackmail. But don't take my word for it: just ask the police whether it's okay to not report a crime because you talked the criminal into returning what they stole. Letting criminals get away with it in this way allows them to commit further crimes, which is why offering these sorts of deals is illegal. You're obviously not likely to get arrested for doing this, since the criminal is the only witness to the blackmail, and they can't implicate you without confessing to their own crime, but blackmail is still illegal even if you won't get caught.
9  Other / Meta / Announcing the 🦊 Vulpine Order of Merit 🦊 on: July 13, 2018, 06:59:59 AM
🦊 Vulpine Order of Merit 🦊
The forum's only (and therefore highest) award for merit!



🦊 What is it?
The Vulpine Order of Merit recognises the outstanding achievement of those rare users whose meritorious posting exceeds my ability to legitimately award merits (50 per month per user).

🦊 How do I apply?
You can't. The Vulpine Order of Merit is not open to request. I am constantly looking for good posts and will award merits and the Vulpine Order of Merit accordingly. Those who are on my admittedly large ignore list will have extreme difficulty in this regard.

🦊 What do I win?
New members of the Vulpine Order of Merit will receive their choice of a chocolate bitcoin wrapped in gold foil, a game rabbit burrito served with habanero sauce, a slice of Black Forest gāteau made with genuine Black Forest kirsch, a 55-gallon drum of WD-40, a pine cone in a bottle, or THE MYSTERY BOX which may contain any of the other prizes, all of them, nothing at all, or something else entirely (and the box itself is worth something too).*

There will also be an elaborate ceremony taking the form of a dance contest. Participation is mandatory.

*Prizes may or may not actually exist.

🦊 What other benefits are there?
Members of the Vulpine Order of Merit are permitted to use their illustrious title on their signature, profile, personal website, and anywhere else meaningless text is placed and pretended to be read. They are also entitled to an inflated sense of superiority to common shitposters, who are sure to accuse me of favouritism in awarding this title to those who actually deserve it.

There's currently far too much focus being placed on the new merit system and not enough on its opposite: the old reliable report system. It was expected that meriting good posts would reduce the need to report bad posts; however, this does not appear to have happened yet:

14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Warning: Using Bitcoin Cash means trusting your private keys to buggy software! on: July 28, 2017, 05:08:34 AM
I've warned about this twice before, when a bug in Bitcoin Unlimited caused actual loss of coins, but it bears repeating now that the Bitcoin Cash "developers" (if they can so be called) are messing with the crypto code in ways they don't understand (the fact that they illegally stole that code is less important than the fact that they stole an old and insecure version of it).

If you run Bitcoin Cash, you are trusting your private keys to untested software developed by a team with a history of catastrophic bugs. A current or future bug in Bitcoin Cash may leak your private keys, allowing your Bitcoin Core coins to be stolen! While any Bitcoin software may naturally contain money-losing bugs, the rushed development and almost complete lack of testing of Bitcoin Cash, combined with the overall extreme incompetence of its so-called "developers", makes the likelihood of such bugs existing in or being introduced to Bitcoin Cash unacceptably high, in my opinion (disregard my opinion at your own risk).

(Self-moderated because this topic is likely to attract the usual "What is Bitcoin Cash?" and "Core/Blockstream/SegWit is evil!!1!" posts. I'd like to uselessly remind everyone that Blockstream and SegWit are off-topic and questions of the form "What is X?" can be usually be answered with a Google search, and such posts will be deleted on sight.)

EDIT: It seems the latest debacle is currently being spun by Bitcoin Cash supporters as "it's not plagiarism if it's open source, no matter what the license says about attribution being required" which is a) not true; and b) not even slightly related to the actual risk described here, which is why I said in the first place that it isn't important. Any posts along these lines will also be deleted, as they are off-topic.

As the subject says - the forum always returns 504 when I try to access my Ignore User Options. Is it because my ignore list is so huge? What am I up to now? 3,000? 4,000? Anyway, I've got a whole bunch of new annoying users to add which I can't because of the aforementioned error. (I could find threads they've posted in and use the Ignore link on their posts, but there's too many of them; it'll take forever to ignore them all individually.)

As it does every year, Saxo Bank's analysts have nominated their top ten "outrageous predictions", which highlight some of the unlikely events that might play out on markets this year.

"This is a deck of black swans," Saxo's global macro strategist Kay Van-Petersen told me, while out in Australia late last year. "The idea is none of these are supposed to be real forecasts, even though, as an example, last year we did have two that did play out."

Indeed, Mr Van-Petersen's own personal outrageous prediction - that Bitcoin could triple in value over 2017 - is off to a good start. When I spoke to him during his Australian visit in mid-December, one Bitcoin was hovering between $US700-800. By January 5, a Bitcoin had jumped to $US1,136, before plunging back to just under $US900 by January 9. Mr Van-Petersen's prediction for surging crypto currency values rests on the adoption of them by one or more nation states - potentially financially or politically troubled nations such as Zimbabwe or Syria - as a form of official tender. Such a move would add some legitimacy to crypto currencies at a time when people are searching for alternatives, as illustrated by the popularity of Bitcoin in China at the moment through a combination of speculation and as a means to escape Government capital controls.

"The combination of a much stronger US dollar, geopolitical tensions and dislocations, people being tired of being wedded to the US dollar - which implicitly means you're wedded to US monetary policy as well as US political policy," Mr Van-Petersen explained as the other factors behind his Bitcoin prediction.

This one: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1724444

While it's true that kwukduck's threads are difficult to distinguish from FUD, he's so often wrong that he's invaluable as a contrarian indicator. He's like the Nostradamus of Falsity. We need his unique insights. I don't know what we'll do without him. Undecided
18  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Why can local addresses be manually banned? on: November 03, 2016, 09:38:02 AM
Bitcoin Core won't automatically IP-ban misbehaving peers if the IP address is local, but doesn't apply the same logic to manual bans. I found this out the hard way when I accidentally banned an inbound Tor peer and took down my hidden service. I didn't even realise what happened until, wondering why my node had no inbound Tor connections, I checked my debog.log and saw it was filled with "connection from 127.0.0.1 dropped (banned)". Embarrassed

Is there any legitimate use for this behaviour or is it just a straight-up bug? It seems inconsistent, at least.

It's not my thread; it's by a newbie who had a question that I couldn't quite understand because I don't speak Russian well and neither does Google Translate, but it seemed legitimate. I reported it to suggest that it be moved to the Новички board instead of Beginners & Help, and when I went back to check if it was moved it was gone! Why? Aside from being in the English section instead of the Russian section, what was wrong with it? Huh
20  Other / Meta / Illiterate sig spammers on: July 24, 2016, 12:35:52 PM
What's to be done about threads like this one? Pretty much every reply is from an illiterate sig spammer except for my reply calling them out (which didn't stop them, no doubt because they didn't read it - I don't know why I thought they might). The problem of sig spam has officially gone from "goddamn annoying" to "fucking ridiculous". Tell me again why we don't just ban paid posts like every other forum?
