+1.  This should be a choice in the poll.  It binary nature of the poll makes it seem like I could be forced to stop using Bitcoin.  Whatever inflatacoin fork is creating it isn't Bitcoin.  Bitcoin will still exist.

I would take it another step.

What we are doing is participating in a mass agreement on the rules of the system.  The name doesn't matter.  The software doesn't matter, except to the extent that it enforces the agreement as our agent.  What matters is the rules.  Even if some random new dude doesn't understand the implications of the rules, the most important parts of the ecosystem are currently in the hands of anarchists and libertarians, and they do understand the rules perfectly well, and they won't accept any silly changes.

Here is the hilarious part though.  Even if some people made their own client that allowed the 50 BTC subsidy to continue forever, it wouldn't matter a damn bit.  Even their clients would accept 25 BTC blocks as valid (the test is <= not ==), but the 25 BTC clients would not see the 50 BTC blocks as valid.  So, the whole network would still follow the correct rules, and the people mining for 50 BTC would get NOTHING.  Not even 50 BS-BTC to spend on their forked chain.  They would need to add another gratuitously incompatible change too, if they wanted to fork.

I don't care I will continue to sell BTC for real cash as fast as I can.  BTC is a pipe dream. FIAT in its awful glory is what matters. BTC is only worth anything because is can be changed to FIAT. Take that away and its worthless binary

You've got it backwards. It can be converted to other currencies because it is in fact worth something.

Yeah delete this entire thread and try again.  It seems like many people who answered no meant they would just keep on with their client, and many people who answered yes meant the same thing (assuming that the unchanged client would not be the official bitcoin one).  The poll should have 3 options.

A. Stay with the current reward scheme
B. Move to the new reward scheme
C. Quit bitcoin entirely
