Wow, this bar turned out to be a great deal!  Hopefully there isn't anything fishy going on and it's genuine.  Smiley

I'm sure it's genuine.  Why would he sell it at a local pawn shop for $1,300 when he could get $800 and the opportunity to pay shipping and escrow fees while trusting some strangers?  Roll Eyes

2  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: If OgNasty is a scammer... then who can you really trust on Bitcointalk?! on: June 20, 2018, 10:16:58 PM
I would've been happy to explain this to you in PM MindRoller but before you started your scam attempt, you blocked PM's from me.  Not sure why you'd block PMs from someone who you were trying to use as an escrow agent (while providing a fake BTC address in a false quote, of course).  Perhaps a misguided attempt at keeping me from communicating with your victim?  In any event, the email obviously wasn't from me, nor were any of the quotes that you were forwarding.  Thank you for making this public though.  Maybe if people see the kind of crap I have to deal with on a daily basis, they'll understand the 'nasty' attitude and why I have little patience for attempted scammers.
Right, now I start to get all of that. I did not block PMs from you, this guy did it. After he somehow got my account credentials... and I thought that you had blocked me , as I've sent you some PM but was informed, that you had blocked messages from me, or something like that.

Well, then I really would like to have an explanation from you OgNasty. Because if there was no negative trust given from you, I would never deal with anyone this way. This was the only thing that kept me thinking you were part of the deal.

You should be embarrassed to admit you thought I was part of this deal.  Every message I received was met with something along the lines of, "screw off scammer."  Your trading partner got them all, but you having me blocked kept you from seeing them. After you continued sending messages with fake quotes from me, I left the well deserved scammer tag and blocked you as I was sick of hearing why I need to be a part of this deal, which was an obvious scam attempt.  Then, even though I wanted no part of this deal (you had me blocked, so we never exchanged a single communication) you still try and rope me into some half witted scam accusation.  

I left a new trust rating for you directing people to your long post of evidence here so they can judge if my trust is accurate or not.


A search for "ognasty.bitcointalk@techie.com" on google finds zero results. Same with a search for "17wDrDTMjuhCdF8x29T4VET7xtLdAf1YmJ site:bitcointalk.org" Also, if you check OgNasty's escrow thread:

The below address is the only address I will ever ask you to send BTC to.  If asked to send to a different address, you are dealing with a scammer.  

168WXhArv7Fasqvi2xm5MQMfLhG18jifMe

If anything, it's hottstepper who hacked your account, or this was a setup to frame OgNasty. I mean, why would you believe that OgNasty is somehow using your account to PM you?

Don't forget to read Rule #1 also...  I don't write this stuff bold and in red because I think it looks pretty.

I'm sure the mining section isn't bad. 

I've found the mining section to be moderated very well and full of helpful and knowledgeable individuals that support each other's efforts.  Smiley

I didn't download the veriscan app, but using a QR code reader on my phone I don't see any serial number info for the bar.  Took me a few seconds...  Be careful.

Peel value is what it is, but it certainly needs some additional work and skills to get. Bcash is relatively easy to sell for bitcoins, but the rest of the alts may not be. There are various things to do..: finding a (reliable) wallet software that supports importing airdrop alts (most likely you'll need to get several different wallets/clients for this), or maybe some service to do this for you (bad for privacy!!). Then you need to trade those altcoins to e.g. bitcoins. That may require KYC/AML and/or using shady exchanges. All in all, some knowledge, effort and time is required to do all of this properly & safely. Therefore "peel value" might in the end be just the bitcoin (and maybe bcash) value for many.
I'm not surprised that the average cryptocoiner does not see nor understand the risks nor difficulties involved in claiming forks, especially when their number is very high and the time between a sale and actual time of potential redeem is somewhat long. Most of the forks could plummet to zero overnight[1].

[1] A very notable example of this is BitcoinX, currently having the most value per Bitcoin after Bcash.

I'm not surprised that people without finance experience don't see that the value of something isn't determined by the owner's proficiency of claiming forks.  The "risks" of claiming forks from an address that no longer holds BTC/BCH/BTG are so minimal it isn't worth seriously discussing unless you have some sort of superiority complex or are trying to buy this coin for less than it's value.

You highlighted a big reason why the DT system is struggling.  

Politics.  You can have two people with the same morals and same hatred of scammers, but one little cultural slight or misread of a post and BOOM - they are now fighting with each other.

I'm not sure how the system can be changed for the better without letting the multiple account Quickscammer take over.  :/

Unfortunately, I think it will take other DT1 members being attacked the way I was and deciding that they are ok getting hit with a little red in order to be part of the solution instead of the problem.  DT1 members expanding their trust networks to include more trusted longterm members who haven't engaged in shady behavior is a start.
10  Other / Meta / Re: Trust system abuse on: June 20, 2018, 06:57:03 PM
Then they don't belong in DT.  Although if you look at the trust feedback that accounts like owlcatz have left me (actual trust system abuse by a user account you Anduck have added trust to) I can see why they'd be afraid to stand up against the troublemakers around here and those who support them.

I've traded with owlcatz and found him trustworthy to do trades with. As you can see, my rating towards owlcatz is from 2016 (when I traded with him). Owlcatz' trust feedback towards you (and from you to him) have happened in the last 6 months if I see it right. I've not been following what happened there, so I'm not familiar with the case that resulted in those ratings. OgNasty, do you have any suggestions? How to improve DT system?

You highlighted a big reason why the DT system is struggling.  You had no issue removing your trust for me in spite of all that I've done for users of this forum (safeguarding literally tens of thousands of BTC), but owlcatz is trustworthy?  I've seen other DT members use this same tired excuse for why they continue to trust individuals who clearly don't deserve it.  Maybe you should start by looking at your own ratings instead of trying to overhaul the system.  Change starts in the mirror.


Very nice of you to show up in a thread titled "Trust system abuse".

Did you send this message: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3160695.msg32677479#msg32677479

Or how about your petty trust rating on edonkey where you've been proven wrong quite comprehensively? https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2337754

Comments like this are why nobody takes your opinion seriously and why I immediately added you to my exclusion list a long time ago.
11  Economy / Collectibles / Re: [eoi] casascius brass 1btc 2013 series 2 on: June 20, 2018, 06:46:21 PM
offers under peel value will be ignored.

remember all the forks along with postage costs, if i dont get a decent offer  by this weekend it will go under the knife.

This significantly reduces the chance of finding a buyer. The link you used does not provide an accurate representation of fork value; you should only consider Bcash at best.

Why would he consider less than the actual value?  If he's going to peel it and claim all the coins, that's what buyers are up against, not what YOU perceive as the only valuable coins.

Not only that, but he could add a few bits to the price as the peeled coin is still of value to collectors and then a few more as peeling yourself has reduced risk to shipping the loaded coin.  Wink

Speaking personally, I don't think the problem is lack of Merit Sources.  I think the problem is that everyone is creating guides or making threads aimed at helping new users to try and earn a ton of Merits because that's how some Merit swindlers have chosen to reward themselves through their alts.  Then when the Merits don't come flooding in like in the threads they see from others, they get discouraged.  If you actually want to earn Merits, you will engage users that are encountering issues and help them resolve their problems.

Current(ly) DT members are largely afraid to do anything -- and I've heard this from several people who are either on DT

Did actual DT (DT1 or DT2) members tell you that or did you make that up?

I don't make stuff up.
People are not willing to do anything, because of the consequences that will likely come to them. You should know, too, as it has happened before. It's not a secret how these things are. You can ask people yourself, or use search.

Then they don't belong in DT.  Although if you look at the trust feedback that accounts like owlcatz have left me (actual trust system abuse by a user account you Anduck have added trust to) I can see why they'd be afraid to stand up against the troublemakers around here and those who support them.

Every retailer should have their own blockchain for customer rewards and there should be an exchange along with an app so that you can use rewards from anywhere to pay for anything.

Example: Using McDonalds coins from buying a Big Mac to purchase gasoline.

Most of the high ranks here are hypocrites as well, preaching to others that they should only be here to learn while wearing signatures for the money.  

First learn, then earn.
