Sorry guys if this is a dumb queston, but I was wondering who founded bitcointalk. I read somehere here that Satoshi created it, but im not sure if its a trustworthy source. Is btct made by Satoshi or a group of btc lovers?

The Bitcoin Forum is a website meant to host free discussion of Bitcoin and related topics. It is operated as a service to the community, and all profit is reinvested into the forum and the community. It was started in 2009 by Satoshi Nakamoto, the original creator of Bitcoin. It is now managed by Michael Marquardt (theymos), Martti Malmi (Sirius), and Stefan Thomas (justmoon). Donated funds are managed by theymos.

Yeah, Satoshi did create it. He doesn't have control of it anymore as far as I'm aware, though (if he is still around). There's a whole system for administrating the forum now, but that's a separate topic.

I'm dabbling in Bitcointalk again - I won't be making trades with people. If I try to trade with you, ask for a signature from my address 171717... which I have had control of since about 2015. If I can't provide it, I might have been hacked.

Do not violate our rules just because you disagree with them. This will get you banned from /r/Bitcoin, and evading this ban will get you (and maybe your IP) banned from Reddit entirely.
If 90% of /r/Bitcoin users find these policies to be intolerable, then I want these 90% of /r/Bitcoin users to leave.
