Over the past few months, Reddit bitcoin moderators including Theymos, who controls major bitcoin forums and discussion panels such as Bitcointalk.org and Bitcoin.org have censored any discussion of bitcoin XT, proposals of bigger blocks and the censorship itself.

We need the block size to be at least 2 MB early next year when bitcoin becomes more popular.

There are many ways to implement larger block size. There should be active discussion in many places.

The more the merrier and the sooner this stranglehold over some of the most important communication platforms is smashed the better. Their users aren't a bunch of junior school kids who need shielding from big bad scary ideas.

Although I agree, I understand the intention. Mike Hearn wants to use the blocksize issue to take over the keys to bitcoin's github commits, and has cheerfully announced his intentions to remove all that pesky monetary freedom, pseudonymity, decentralisation etc, both recently and in the past.

More transaction volume is needed, and bigger blocks will be needed one way or another. But choosing XT and Hearn sacrifices everything that makes Bitcoin what it is, including (intrinsically) what makes it so valuable.
