For anyone interested Gavin Andresen is doing a AMA on one of those suspicious forums that aren't this one.

Im honestly too lazy to register in another forum, but I would love if someone can ask him what does he pretend to do in the case of the blocksize being too big so that average people can't run a node? Why is he ok with centralizing Bitcoin nodes when mining is already centralized? I assume someone has already asked him 40 questions about the blocksize so im going to start reading the 7 pages to see what happened.

I'd say it was worth a registration. There'll be plenty more. It's not like Reddit where it's heaving with morons who've drifted in from elsewhere. Most people signed up on there will be pretty clued up and it seems like all of the questions are being addressed.

Hi Gavin,

Favorite video game all time?

Favorite book all time?

Favorite movie all time?

Theres only so many Bitcoin questions to ask, I've seen/read so much about your views I feel I know what you might answer.

So I went a little "off topic"! (hope thats ok)

these are very important questions!

People seem to enjoy labeling him as an android piloted by three letter agencies but you'd be hard pressed to point out many others who've done more to advance the scene.

 It's run by Roger Ver on Bitcoin.com so everyone is certainly who they claim to be.

I think Gavin Andersen is generally a good guy and genuinely wants the best for Bitcoin, and when he says bigger blocks are a good idea he genuinely thinks that's the case. Mike Hearn on the other hand, for some reason makes me thing that he has an agenda. In any case I would expect such 2 intelligent individuals to understand how "specialization" in running full nodes is a big mistake.

Those questions look like something that would be asked to a boy band during an interview for sweet16 magazine or whatever the teenagers are reading now.  Roll Eyes
Seriously, after this is done on the other forum (which I will not be registering on) will someone post the Q&A details here that are more relevant then the sarcastic ones listed. Just a jab at you. No harshness intended.

Mixan I was utterly sarcastic up there. I just wanted to point out what you said. Maybe that was not clear.

That post discouraged me.

However, talking to gentlemand:
do you have anything to read regarding the android and the agencies? I would be interested in finding out more.

If he really is Gavin and apparently he is we could post the most interesting Q&A of this AMA in here.
It would be a good reference for us.

I am sure he will either post about it on here or tweet about it later, I am sure he is getting asked plenty if it was/is really him.

Da!mn, that's a big ass list and only for the next 2 months.

I've just registered there and will be checking it out.

Theymos, you need to step your game up. Where's the promised new bitcointalk.org?

Too bad it isn't in reddit. Reddit is easier to read than this bitcoin.com forum :/

Really? I find it an appalling grind. If it's a lengthy AMA then I can't be bothered to try and find the poster's answers and go straight to their profile. Then you've no idea what they've been asked.

I just found it wasn't worth my time to try to have a productive conversation there-- too many people who seemed to be actively trying to derail good discussion.

Looks like GA is officially done with bitcointalk.org

why he is not posting here anymore, too much hating on him here?

i have not read all the questions, but they should ask about the issue of the block limit, when it will be done exactly...

i think i'm gonna do it myself....
