Sorry Phinn, don't get me wrong, I usually take good notice on the posts/advice you give in these forums but....
why is this important for Bitcoin?Huh?

EDIT: this is a trick question btw  Wink




SOB! Some of my fans on onto the way I think. Surely, you don't believe that this innocent thread is connected in any way, shape or form with any other threads I may have penned recently, do you?  Wink

For, if that were the case, one may argue that all my past half-dozen or so threads are all related. Again, surely, that can't be the case, can it?  Wink Wink

It's passed mid-May and Black Arrow is no longer providing any shipping date. It looks like all the miners are going into their ASIC farm and all the BTC into their wallets.

These guys are committing fraud.

And, my <300 posts mostly calling them, et al. out on their thread were allowed to be deleted because...?

You do realize that the Co-op and BA's three main resellers are in on it, don't you? Or did you, among others, not see that post prior it being deleted?

But, don't worry! All BA's customer's have been duly warned - time and time again - to not invest moneys they couldn't afford to lose, ergo be more careful next time.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm in the process of nailing an active US exchange to the wall, along with the venerable Bitcoin-based team that surrounds it only a couple blocks away.

Hopefully, not too many fellow bitcoiners got too smoked up while attending that last conference, opting to join the dark side while not being in full capacity of their senses.

BTW, if Boussac seemed a tad shaken up prior to him given his talk at the conference, there probably was a good reason for it, thus anybody having funds in Bitcon-Central best get them out while the getting out is still good, for I have a feeling... Otherwise, you'll be making lemonade with that LEMON. Pierre knows exactly what I'm talking about, and should believe by now that it's to his, AND HIS CLOSE ALLIES' best interest to return my 1,132 BTC that's currently residing in one of davout's bitcoin wallets.

824  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Evan Faggart's take on the Bitcoin Foundation on: May 17, 2014, 09:41:15 PM
Hate to say it, but with a name like Evan Faggart, you know he got beat up as a kid.   Tongue

I wonder... if he went to school with Travis Skewers... and why certain namesakes always seem to gravity toward Brock "Hot Tub" Pierce, "The Godfather of Bitcoin", now to his third-story-nursery (double entendre intended) located overlooking the Third Street Promenade, a historic building he has aspirations of owning.

If one can't see the similarities of what's happening now with what transpired commencing 15 years ago as seen in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jmaRTZpJgPA, then I have have a cryptocurrency exchange fully complying with US laws with nary an issue for you. Twelve thousand members, and counting, with millions of dollars, bitcoins, et al. on account can't be wrong.

BTW, neither Evan Faggart nor Travis Skewers are members of TBF, as seen here: https://bitcoinfoundation.org/members/. What's even odder is that many of the names currently associated with Brock Pierce, some penning in threads on this forum in his defense, are also NOT members of TBF. Perhaps, they're all members of the Reasonably Intelligent Cult Brock spoke of, opting to not allocate their precious to two foundations having the same accused pedophile on its boards, fearing the old saw, "What will the neighbors thing?"

Well, Evan Faggart is just a writer at Coin Brief.  He has no relationship to TBF, or any of the individual members, in any way.  His issue is not,"What will the neighbors think?" as much as the belief that a centralized organization should not represent a decentralized system, such as Bitcoin.

I need to apologize on two funds concerning my quoted post above.

First, you are correct about Evan Faggart. The person I had in mind was Kevin Beardsley, so please chalk this up to me being either tired when I penned it, had too much info on my mind desiring to relay, or both. My apologies to Evan Faggart.

Secondly, I misspelled Travis Skweres' last name incorrectly, but that was not my intent in the above, although I have a many times bastardized names in the past, and will probably do the same with Mr. Skweres in the future, to date, regard all my previous misspellings as Freudian slips.

The greatest achievement of the bitcoin foundation is managing to convince other people that they are relevant.

This is sad but it's the truth, while in paper the a bitcoin fondation is a great idea and it is of most importance to defend bitcoin interest, and why not even lobby in governments and to create connection with tech giants and spread the bitcoin to the world, right now it just giving negativity to bitcoin and a money hog

Don't worry, rumor has it that Brock Pierce has a plan.

Meet Patrick Byrne: Bitcoin Messiah, CEO of Overstock,

Right there people will dismiss it, sadly they know nothing about marketing. I use to read books about email marketing, and this breaks every rule. First off I hope they didn't just blast 41 million emails out. They should have analytics to know when to send out emails to the right people. They have enough information they could easily figure out a good time and spread them over that time period making sure they get the best response to it. Also using words like "Messiah" not only insult people like me who have been doing every thing we can to help bitcoin with money, time and just spending 24/7 on it, but also people that have no clue about bitcoin will now go well this guy is full of himself. So while we can all think this is amazing, it really shows that overstock is another company that really has no clue to run it's business using marketing.

Would you rather have the word Messiah associated with Bitcoin, or the term Godfather of Bitcoin, or an a controversial individual on the board of TBF?

BTW, I've literally been on this computer for the past 24 hours straight reading my ass off on Bitcoin related topics, with the exception of eating, getting coffee and opting to walk three blocks as a crow flies to purchase cigarettes.

We, TBF board members, were not aware of Brock Pierce's past, albeit we find it a non-issue.

That said, we duly hope that Brock Pierce will bring more welcoming funding to TBF like he did with KnC's $100K USD one day prior to the election.

Now, if you'll excuse us, we have yet another behind the door board meeting to attend to, then write-off some requisites to have some members paid via BTC, of which all can clearly see via the Brock-Chain, of which, BTW, was name changed to such via 51% approval, again behind closed doors.

Brock Pierce's public entrepreneurial record is fair game.  Innuendo about his sexuality based on decades-old guilt by association is not.  You seem to do a good job of hopping to the first topic when you get called out on the second.

839  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Yet Another Brock Pierce Thread on: May 17, 2014, 04:15:39 AM
As someone who would vote "Yes" for Brock Pierce being on the Bitcoin Foundation Board, I thought I would outline my thinking on the subject, mostly for Phinnaeus Gage, Xtib, and others who express incredulity that anyone could hold such a position.

First of all, the events portrayed have nothing to do with "Pedophilia," which is a sexual attraction to prepubescent minors.  They are about sex between adults and individuals in their mid teens and above, which while biologically normative, is proscribed in our society to prevent people in positions of power from taking advantage of people with little or no power of their own.  Pedophilia is not about sexually mature people having sex with other sexually mature people, no matter how inappropriate or power-disparate such encounters may be.  It is common in the gutter press and other places that should know better, to use "pedophilia" as a pejorative to refer to adult attraction to teens and as the name of a crime.  It is neither.

So what is being alleged here, is that Brock Pierce knew individuals involved with, and was associated with a scene, where exploitative adult/teen sex occurred, at a time when Mr. Pierce was not much older than the teens allegedly involved.  

Apparently, to some, like Phinnaeus Gage, this means that for the rest of his life, every time Brock Pierce tries to do anything, people must leap out of the bushes, point at him, and scream "Pedophile," and then post every single news story about DEN over and over and over again, day after day after day, until peoples eyes bleed.

This in spite of the fact that no credible evidence has ever been presented that Brock Pierce engaged in the activities alleged, sufficient to charge him with any sort of crime, and it is now decades after this dead horse should have been beaten to death with a shovel and buried in a deep grave.

The actions of self-appointed "pedophile outers" like Phinnaeus Gage teeter on the fine line between legitimate concern about the sexual exploitation of minors, and gay-bashing and hate speech, especially when interspersed with "Collins-Rectum" jokes.  What's next?  Snide comments about salad-tossing and how a microwave can't brown your meat?

The notion that Bitcoin, a unregulatable distributed Cryptocurrency, which has enabled a payment system for things like illegal drugs, assassination, and child pornography, is going to have its reputation sullied because someone is on its board, who, two decades ago, as a person in his late teens and early 20's, knew some people who liked to have sex with teenagers, is laughable.  Really?  Seriously?

I think Brock Pierce is a welcome technical asset on the Bitcoin Foundation Board, and those who are going to resign because he is there should, well, just resign.  Preferably quietly, and with a minimum of self-righteous speech-making about whatever pedophile-uncloaking agenda they are currently flogging.

The major characteristic of all witch hunts is that the dissenters end up being accused of being witches themselves.  Perhaps this is why so few people have opined on this egregious and inappropriate public airing of gossip and speculation about Brock Pierce's private business and sexuality.

I'd just as soon never see another thread on this topic.



I see what's happening here! It's called attack and discredit the messenger via playing the he's-a-homophobe card. Okay, I'll play, since I hold the trump card.

Being 54-years-old, if I hated blacks, I would come right out and state that I hate niggers. If I hated Jews, I would come right out and state that all them son-of-a-bitches should have been killed by Hitler. If I hated gays, I sure the hell am man enough to come out say that I wish Hitler was around so that he could stick niggers up all their asses. Since I don't espouse, nor desire any of the aforementioned, none of such is true.

But, I do have a problem with of-age adult males sticking their dicks up anybody's ass or pussy, if such be the case, who's one second shy of being of legal age for sexual consent themselves, regardless of what's the proper term to use, as I'm sure you also have. If not, then state such.

BTW, I joke constantly about fucking goats, something I've never done, but have no qualms with anybody into animal husbandry. Perhaps, deep down, I believe them, too, should have Kosher vegetables stuck in their various orifices.

Now, whatever-your-real-name-is, you seem like an intelligent guy, and all, and would probably make a fine member of Brock Pierce's Reasonable Intelligent Sect, but the truth of the matter is that this Godfather-of-Bitcoin thingie runs much deeper than just the paedo- aspect I've espoused of late, namely the distribution of porn, probably most of the child kind, embedded in the brock chain, and the take-the-money-and-run attitude that's been running rampant via various cryptocurrency entities, including my 1,132 BTC I've yet to have returned to me from InstaWallet for over a year now due, in part, to the Paymium scheme also built upon a house of cards.

Case in point, expanding upon the latter... When a person comes onto the Bitcoin scene fairly recently, possibly eyeing another money grab, and starts an unregulated exchange in the US under the auspices of Team Brock Pierce, et al. having just built, then shut down a website after going through his $200K USD VC seed money while getting up to speed on how to figure out the theme of, and how to incorporate a widget into, the said now dead-parrot site, then I say Bitcoin has a problem, especially when the Godfather of Bitcoin is now a board member of TBF and oversees, to one degree or another, a myriad Bitcoin-based entities, either under one roof or, at least, just walking distance to one another via the Third Street Promenade, possessing the same tell-tale signs of incompetence. Not to mention how Team Brock Pierce has been trying to take control of Mt Coxs (apologies for my inner homophobia coming through) stealthy via the newly formed Sunlot since February, 2013, under the guise of looking out for his fellow bitcoiners that were its customers. Or, don't you see through that ruse as well, in spite of hundreds believing elsewise?

That said, every motherfuckin' poll on the internet (not just on this forum) clearly favors Brock Pierce being removed from the board of TBF, regardless if he's the straightest male on the planet, not having touched a single dick in his life, including his own, with same for asses, regardless of age of consent.

Take a close look at all of Brock Pierce's Bitcoin-based entities, and you'll clearly see, sans much effort, that in spite of VC funding, they're all built upon one another sans anything of substance, for the most part, with the exception of creative marketing buzz led my Michael Terpin's house of cards as well.

I'm sure you said, as well as I, when we were kids, "It's not who you know, but who you blow," not once having it cross our minds that we were offending a certain demographic whether one of such was in earshot or not. We've said such prior to knowing where and how our dicks would be used besides just pissing outta it, but probably during entering the masturbation stage we just somehow stumbled across, my foray being the XXX movie ads in the Chicago Suntimes five rows in a cornfield. What was yours? Sadly, others underage were introduced to sex, et al. via, "You trust me, don't you?"

But fuck all that since your hellbent on not seeing/reading anymore about Brock Pierce's inappropriate accusations. Let's now play the follow-the-money game.

Sunlot, which is backed by child-actor turned entrepreneur Brock Pierce and William Quigley, the managing director at California-based Clearstone Venture Partners, aims to resurrect Mt.Gox and, if successful, would immediately distribute its assets on a proportional basis to the 127,000 affected customers.

Take a look at the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7RV2d6t5xVw (in case you missed the link above) and pay close attention as the camera pans the room during the Q & A session. See any familiar faces?

What I'm trying to relay is that all those entities that comprise of Sunlot are made up of the same individuals, having partnered-up/created various other entities prior to, and after they discovered Bitcoin staring in 2009, and not 2013. I guess I need to hunt down an easy-to-use Venn diagram program to further illustrate what I'm espousing so that those who still don't get it can at least visualize it, albeit to me it's clear as day, and should be to you since possessing some intelligence.

Apologies if this post looks like I'm sticking it you ass, so to speak, for unfortunately that was my intent. Although your post was a well-penned read, I duly hope I negated its claims.

840  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How to get BTC Foundation out of Bitcoin development? on: May 17, 2014, 01:44:14 AM
The current and past self titled, self absorbed 'Bitcoin Foundation' isn't worthy of Bitcoin.  I stand behind these words. Apparently so do many others.

  As far as I have been able to deduce only Gavin Andresen is extremely worthy to be in any leadership role concerning Bitcoin, thank goodness we all have Mr. Andresen leading the Development of Bitcoin and at the Bitcoin Foundation. Maybe others too are very worthy leading the Bitcoin Foundation that are currently in leadership positions but I cannot be anywhere near certain of that at this point in time. Add to that many past/present Bitcoin Foundation board members are obviously extremely unworthy of their past/present positions, and that's what finally forced my reply and voice here.


 Like the vast majority I am all in favor of a representative body for helping lead Bitcoin. But not what Bitcoin has had at the Bitcoin Foundation overall, to present date.


 The  Bitcoin Foundation is an overall embarrassment, and somewhat of a stain on Bitcoin itself, if that's even possible, which fortunately it's really not. Nothing can stop Bitcoin, that's apparent. But many things can slow it down and hinder it, including poor leadership. And at least until these self serving political maneuvers finally come to an end it will continue to be so in many eyes opinions.


 I am certain many past and present members of the Foundation should have never made it to a leadership position at the Bitcoin Foundation in the first place, nor even been considered, nor should have an owner of any Exchange been the one to found the Bitcoin Foundation in the first place.

 The mixing of industry business leaders onto the Bitcoin Foundation is already conflicting enough, perhaps far too much. Then again it appears this is more a self serving quasi-business-political organization that doesn't concern itself much about leading Bitcoin, but instead the members own personal business agenda's far too very often.


 Most of those residing on what's very much been a self serving board at the Bitcoin Foundation to date don't appear to be worthy to represent Bitcoin in any leadership roles. Maybe some other current Bitcoin Foundation members do, that is still impossible for me to know at this time so far. But already it's been impossible for those like myself to stand beside the  'Bitcoin Foundation' to date, or even support the 'Bitcoin Foundation' up till now.


 I also believe that soon this all blows over as drastic changes are made to come about at the Bitcoin Foundation, or another Foundation altogether as Bitcoin's growth continues to increase.


 As for all the resignations at the 'Bitcoin Foundation'...outstanding! That's a good start. Stand up, be heard, make a stand, do what can be done to make things better, object when nothing else is possible, and if required stand aside and let it self destruct. And if nothing else at least sound out about what one believes and what one objects to publicly, and not merely behind closed doorways.


 As for the current voting requirements for positions at the Bitcoin Foundation; that too must end. At most a very modest enrollment fee to become an annual member should be all that's required to cast one's vote, nothing more, nor anything less than the BTC equivalent of $10 to $20 annually should be all that it takes to allow one's voice/vote to be heard/cast. When this finally occurs I will join, until then I will continue to cringe concerning almost everything about the so called Bitcoin Foundation. But at the same time I will also continue an unwavering support of the Decentralized Monetary Revolution that Bitcoin is dominating, and that is extremely likely to rightfully continue dominating, with or without decent leadership at the 'Bitcoin Foundation.


 Make no mistake: The Bitcoin Foundation doesn't represent those like myself. I also believe the Bitcoin Foundation doesn't have Dorian Satoshi's blessing either, not after reading the Bitcoin Whitepaper more than a couple of times.


 But as stated before Gavin Andresen does have my full faith and support as do many others including apparently Dorian Satoshi. Many others also truly help lead Bitcoin from all corners of the Bitcoin community, yet the Bitcoin Foundation doesn't seem to care for anything but a semi-dictatorial self along with of course grossly restricted voting audience for the said Bitcoin Foundation.

 I can only urge Bitcoin Foundation board members to drop any possible conflicting personal political monetary beliefs when it comes to doing what's best for Bitcoin and it's future, and open up the voting of all Board Membership to all Bitcoin Foundation members, and keep those annual fees for membership at a very modest amount. That may be difficult for some to take to task, but it's certainly required if Bitcoin is to become all it can be. Otherwise they can fully expect to be a lot more than merely challenged.


Caveat emptor

Nice read, but... http://www.coindesk.com/gavin-andresen-steps-bitcoins-lead-developer/

Don't make me juxtapose two quotes from Gavin, one claiming he could retire on his Bitcoin stash, and another claiming he's bitcoin poor during the time frame discussing why he should be paid by TBF.
