I support freedom of speech too, but I don't think it should be utilized as a permission to spread hateful and racist propaganda.

That's not how freedom of speech works..

I included racism and bigotry and included examples of both. Stop saying Islam isn't a race and think about the issue instead.


Islam is not only not a race, but a religion, and uniquely also a political ideology which in many ways is incompatible with western ideology..

Like this.. Watch, you can counter it with your own FACTS if you are mentally capable..

Yes muslims are truly evil people, that practice disgusting rituals such as circumcision.  Very sick people.

Female circumcision is a disgusting problem widespread in mostly islamic areas but is also practiced by some who call themselves Christians in the same areas..

Not even ALL muslims agree with the disgusting practice see..

But then, me calling FGM a "disgusting practice" would be considered "hateful" and "racist" to those who practice it..
I bet their are plenty of posters here that would say me calling FGM a "disgusting practice" is "hateful" and "racist" to them, so should I not be allowed to say that either?

Who decides?
What centralized power do you suggest to decided what is "hateful" and "racist" and where do they stop?

Truth and logic will win in the free market if ideas..

Do any of you here dare to step up and defend FGM?  You are free to do so..

I support freedom of speech, and the freedom of those who cannot handle it to go find a safer place, or make one themselves..

Earn is the most annoying word on this forum for me and I can't believe it hasn't been mentioned in 3 pages.. 

Everything is earn this, earn that, earn earn earn earn..

No matter if it's earn from a bounty, or earn from a signature, or earn from a hyip/ponzi, or earn from a faucet, or earn merits, or earn a high rank, or earn trust ratings..

It's like people are just here to get something and "earn" sounds so.. Entitled...

Saw a post from a newb the other day something about "How do I earn from the bitcoin core link?"..

It depends on what kind of trading you want to do..

You don't have to be fast to buy and hold, or swing trade, but if you are daytrading and trying to scalp some satoshis out of the market, faster is better..

You don't have to be confident that your trade will win, you just have to be OK with losing a little bit if you stoploss..

Have a plan to stoploss and be ok with losing that much of an amount, and place your bet...
1548  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Best Cryptocurrency Memories. on: September 25, 2018, 09:03:07 PM
The Doge pump was cool but I really really didn't know what I was doing yet...

The AURoracoin pump was a sight to behold, and I knew enough at the time to take advantage of it..

The first BIG UNB pump was amazing, I was such a naive shill cheerleader at the time though, lol.. Just after the GAW happening..

O I almost forgot Paycoin (xpy?)! I was THERE for the $20 "floor" happening and killed it on the wild spread immediately after the $20 buy wall disappeared.. I was THERE and witnessed that happening..

Some guy got a bunch of XPY on the gaw exchange site for like 1 satoshi each and made a killing dumping them later, when they first opened trading it for the gift cards thing.. He got them off the exchange in time before they rolled it back..

The early Darkcoin pumps were really something.. They should never have changed it to DASH.. DRK ftw
All the hype when darksend first came out, I even downloaded the wallet and tried it out, lol..
Damn I should check that old wallet and see if I forgot some DRK on it!

I watched in awe at BTCs bottom after the $1200 ATH..

Those were the days!

ICOs ruined it all?
I hated the brand new shitcoins like sprouts already and then ICOs happened..

Cryptsy fell. I was THERE for the whole thing and ARBed the hell out of it exiting with coins like UNO..
Cryptsy falling is what brought me to Bitcointalk..

I think almost all of my best crypto memories are Cryptsy memories when I was a green newb..

Ofcourse I was here for the $20k BTC pump but that doesn't seem long enough ago to be "memories" yet..

Here I am trying to start from the beginning again

Learn how to secure your account and not get phished..
Make sure you learn up on what things you should not do around here so you don't get a negative trust. Forum etiquette..
Learn the forum rules so you don't do something stupid and get banned..

Good luck

I got Winklevosses but the quiz is all about stuff relating to ICOs that I don't do..

Like the question "What is the biggest problem in crypto" I would answer that ICOs themselves are the biggest problem but I could only choose "scams", but almost all ICOs are scams so that felt close..

I saw this yesterday when it was 10 miles long and the first thing I noticed is that Mark was online yesterday (now day before yesterday)..;u=2134
But still hasn't posted since 2013.. Maybe that is usual for him but I thought it was interesting..

I didn't want to post it then because it's OT a bit and I wasn't sure if you were done and didn't want to stick a post into the middle of your OP posts if you weren't done yet etc..
But I'll post my OT comment now, hope you don't mind..

Back on topic, I'm not sure if requiring a single 1 merit is going to have the desired effect..
Instead of bumping it to 5 or 10 as many suggest, I think it would be funny to bump it up by 1 like every month to make them scramble over and over again..
1552  Other / Meta / Re: So I've Become a Merit Source... Need Some Advice on: September 25, 2018, 04:34:38 PM
theymos suggested that I'd give merits to some newbies in the forum who make good posts

He specifically mentioned trying to find newbies to you? That is interesting..

I have also been trying to find good newbies to merit and it has not been easy.. I don't have/get all that many smerits and even with the few I have I have not been able to completely dump them on deserving newbies, so I have a few in stock. The ones that especially deserve it are hard to find, probably because they have already got merit since they are good posters. Maybe 1 in 50, if not less, newbie accounts deserve a merit to become a junior and haven't gotten one yet, after looking at their post histories..

Maybe my standards are a bit too stiff (or not?) but I have only been able to bring myself to merit 7-8 newbies or so since the mass derank happening..
You could look at my sent merit history, but I don't know if they deserve more merit than the one I gave them. By definition if they have received a merit then they are no longer newbies so their is that hangup too.. You aren't going to find newbies in sent merit histories of anyone because they cannot exist..

Even if I find a newbie account that makes good posts and knows what they are talking about, it makes me wonder what happened to their old account..
they are probably red tagged or some shit and starting over from a new account..

I like the ones that I can tell are real newbies from their first posts, and ask good questions they actually want the answers to..

Other than newbies, I think I prefer to give my few smerits to lower ranked accounts that actually need it, where they will mean the most to the person..

I don't know if you can find an easy way to give merits to deserving merit virgin newbs, but just giving merits away to whatever posts you like and want to see more of is probably pretty easy, much easier than trying to find rare deserving newbs..
1553  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Do you want to know why the Electric Cars production is growing? on: September 24, 2018, 10:00:52 PM
It makes me think I should make a silly contraption and call it a "free energy generator" so I can get myself 8.5 million views..

This thing is obviously not a free energy generator because he is using a powered electric motor to move a magnetic field between the speakers..

I don't see what it has to do with electric cars, other than if the popularity of the video somehow relates to the the interest in electricity and therefor interest in electric cars..

In that case, I can see the watchers of this video, if they really believe this is a free energy generator, would be just the suckers to buy electric cars..
1554  Other / Meta / Re: How recognized are you in the bitcointalk world? on: September 24, 2018, 07:59:33 PM
Here are some of my previous works..

We'll tokenize the trading cards by creating a Ethereum smart contract and a shiny ICO to go with it!

Errrr.... You could do it on Bitcoin with Counterparty..

This Bitcoin signed message proves that I created the above assets, how many of them I still own, others I own, and my trade history on the Counterparty Decentralized Exchange, all on the Bitcoin blockchain. eddie13 9/24/2018

I'm not much of an artist but I think this stuff is pretty nifty and fun..

If a smart coder made a copy of this...

Then we could all make our own card, register our own assets, list them on the DEX, buy/sell/trade with eachother, and send eachother cards to our BTC addys..
Pretty much just copy that project..  
That site also functions as the DEX, you can place your DEX orders from the site..

I believe you cannot have an opinion that the sun emits purple light.

But the sun most certainly does emit purple light..

It's just that it also emits all the other colors too, and therefore appears to be white..

First proven by Sir Isaac Newton..
Newton had proved that white light was made up of colors mixed together, and the prism merely separated them - he was the first person to understand the rainbow.


But the earth is clearly round and you would have to be absolutely off your rocker to believe otherwise..
1556  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Have you ever been hacked on a crypto trading platform? (share your experience) on: September 24, 2018, 03:42:37 PM
OP is a somewhat well disguised shill for this bbod .io site..
If you look at his posts, half of them are to mention it in some way..

Often newbies posting links like this are an attempt to scam or hack but this bbod may be legit?
If anything it is an advertisement..

Yes I have has the emails rain in warning me of attempts to access some of my accounts I think because they got my email address in the Bitcointalk hack and then tried getting into exchanges with it..  It seems they waisted a lot of effort trying to get into a c-cex account of mine that I never used anyway, lol..

I'm not using that email for exchanges anymore..

I have a ton of exchange accounts, all empty until I decide to use them, if ever..
Whenever I fund an exchange account of mine I change the password to a new unique strong password and use 2FA sometimes when I plan to leave funds there for a long time or play with a larger amount of funds..

<Serves no purpose other than to halve (1/2) the amount of smerits that could possibly be sent to new/periodic participants..  
I'm pretty sure I can get my source sMerits increased if I manage to spend them all, so I see no reason not to send them to higher ranks. In the past days, I've emptied my source sMerits for the first time ever, I now have 345 sMerits "of my own" to distribute, and if I ever manage to do that, I'll PM theymos and ask to increase my source amount.

People send you plenty, more than enough, don't they?
Not only are they halved, they are sitting in surplus..

I don't mean at all to say you don't "deserve" them, because you posts and work are awesome..
Just pointing out the deflation aspect, and this particular case is just an example..

I turn wrenches, fix, maintain, or improve about anything with moving parts. I have also operated some pretty impressive machines at some "jobs" I have had and I have some certifications and licences for stuff and things..

I'm self employed half of the time doing whatever. I'm not much of a 9-5 guy..
I either like to be a 3:30AM to 8:00PM kind of guy, or an on my own time kind of guy..
