Any you thought overclockers were just a bunch of dedicated techies. More like a buch of ***holes.

Don't take it personally. Many people think bitcoin is somehow, a scam.

First they call you a scam, then they shut your thread, then they setup their own mining pool - then you win !

BitCoin is stealing there free-lunch fan base  .... and kicking sand in their face too.

it's more fun ripping the guts out of the machine and making money than having it all glitzy and spendy-looking  and sucking up money.

It's like 24-hour rally-car racing for money versus friday night rice-rockets for kicks

Yeah, I've heard that too, and it boggles my mind.  How can people say it's a scheme for the early adopters.. aren't ALL new businesses a "get rich" scheme for the early adopters?  Isn't that the reward for taking the chance on something!?  I hope Satoshi and the early adopters DO have their btc and make a buttload, they deserve the reward for the effort and taking a chance!

For my part, I am using Bitcoins because I can see both how simple yet robust Bitcoin is, and I WANT to be a part of it, to use it, to help it gain traction.  If that means other people get rich, good for them for finding and recognizing it before I did.  I hope to also make out when BTC hits $50 a pop, and my savings wallet is suddenly worth something.  But in the mean time, I will keep gambling on Betco.in, buying and using gift cards, trading with btc, getting my server and VPN with btc, and trying to stimulate the bitcoin economy because I think it should be used.

I believe it is called the "fairness" heuristic, but it is so wrong to apply the "fairness" heuristic to modern life. Some things need to be unequal for things to work.

Yeah, most people don't realize that inequality is a GOOD thing.  If means you can get more than somebody else.

Some inequalities are good and some are bad. It depends entirely on their cause. I think that people should be allowed to keep what they create and this means that if one person creates more than another he will also have more than the other. This inequality is good and just as far as I'm concerned.

If you build two houses and I only build one, it's perfectly fair that you have one house more than me.

The staff are all mining and don't want their userbase driving the difficulty up further?

Fear of their users migrating to Bitcoin thus messing with their third place F@H rank?

Wow, that's a nice list of GPU power.  If one wanted to promote bitcoins, one could simply post a simple "mine bitcons" posts on those forums.  Converting those free workers into bitcoin miners would be, like, a no-brainer.

I wonder if bitcoin is now a censored word on overclock.net?

Perhaps a dissipation of their folding power was so fast so that their "upper management" took a notice and could identify the cause.

And a conclusion is that all the @home type of projects will have a much harder time from now on.  Bitcoin will suck out all their users.

Well the thing is, Bitcoin mining and F@H don't really compete with each other that well. F@H runs great on nVidia GPUs and we all know mining Bitcoins is best done on AMD GPUs.
