Great Schism is the best because of its connotation with Byzantine generals and holy doctrinal conflict that normal people DGAF about but are nonetheless subjected to by the priest caste (resplendent in their shiny robes, funny hats, odd lifestyles, strange rituals, etc.)

C'mon you guys....I need more links to flesh out this skeleton of an OP!   Tongue

What were your favorite skirmishes thus far?

Aren't you sick of having to Search for "old" links, as we endlessly rehash the 20MB/8MB/2MB debate?

And think of the benefit to future internet anthropologists!  This thread should be their Rosetta Stone.   Cool

Good pick!  All warfare is based on deception...

The butthurt NotXT caused on the rump forums was epic.  The fact the Xturds didn't anticipate and plan for spoofed version signals despite being warned only shows they are clueless amateurs.

Classic.  Total classic!

Great, great idea.

For my part I would like to beef up the rap sheet against one Gavin Andresen and shine light on the trail of evidence which supports his indictment as Bitcoin traitor and persona non grata.

Here is Gavin's history of attacks on Bitcoin using the block size as a proxy and purported motivations:

03/12/2013
The "Accidental" fork

Recently Bitcoin came close to unmitigated disaster, in the following way:Gavin diplomatically suggested that miners increase their block size, from the previous magic number of "250k" to something they themselves pick.This approach is flawed: the solution to the problem of having a magic number in the code is not passing the responsibility of choosing it to a larger group. It may work politically, in the sense that where large, vague groups are responsible for a bad move nobody will ever be hung. It does not work practically.

This point does not begin to get sufficient emphasis: stop thinking politically, stick to thinking practically. The political importance, usefulness or competence of a dev is nil. This is not your job, and more importantly this is one of the things you suck at the most. A casual skim through the -dev sessions is ample proof for this, more ridiculous dickwad posturing and knowshitism has never before been seen (outside of the mailing lists of some meanwhile failed open source projects). Snap out of it. Stick to writing code.

Note the foresight of MPOE-PR with regards to the events that came to unfold in the following years.

01/06/2015
The first magic numbers

Quote
My goal is to prove that it is safe to raise the maximum block size from 1MB to at least 20MB, with the existing Bitcoin Core code (no fancy invertible bloom filters, no hyper-optimized-for-the Bitcoin-elliptic-curve verification code).

...

My desktop machine (a quad-core, 16GB-memory, "Late 2012" iMac) can easily keep up with a 20-MB-per-block blockchain, and could even keep up with a 200-MB-per-block chain if run with bigger -maxsigcachesize and -dbcache settings.

http://gavintech.blogspot.ca/2015/01/looking-before-scaling-up-leap.html

01/20/2015
I'm confident that there are no technical barriers to scaling up

Quote
Executive summary: if we increased the maximum block size to 20 megabytes tomorrow, and every single miner decided to start creating 20MB blocks and there was a sudden increase in the number of transactions on the network to fill up those blocks....

... the 0.10.0 version of the reference implementation would run just fine.
http://gavintech.blogspot.ca/2015/01/twenty-megabytes-testing-results.html

Q3 2015
Why eight? Because it's a Chinese homonym for "prosper" or "wealth"

Quote
It crops up in the Chinese Bitcoin community all the time. So this choice obviously wasn't based on any kind of scientific analysis. Having Bitcoin protocol constants be decided by rhymes would obviously have been an embarrassment, but nonetheless, we compromised and did it. - Mike Hearn


https://news.ycombinator.com/threads?id=mike_hearn&next=10921219

Early in my tenure here the topic of whether there would be one cryptocurrency or many successful ones came up. I pointed out that money has a variety of functions and uses, and that ideal money for each different application would involve different characteristics or priorities. You can't "have it all" with just one cryptocurrency. For example, a highly secure, highly valued "digital gold" crypto would have different ideal characteristics than a highly convenient, fast-transacting, low or zero fee crypto used for everyday purchases.

What I didn't anticipate is that this need for multiple optimized cryptocurrencies for every financial niche would become part of a great conflict within bitcoin itself. It didn't occur to me that bitcoin, with its lack of central authority, would itself become a battleground between people with different financial visions and priorities.

For the most part, all of these competing visions that are part of the bitcoin conflict reflect valid financial needs. There should be a successful cryptocurrency for each of them. But bitcoin, if it is to remain successful, can be only one of these. Somehow we need to arrive at a concensus as to what bitcoin is and is not. Once we have that, you'll be surprised how quickly we can figure out the path to promoting that vision and fixing the current limitations in the bitcoin protocol. But as long as we don't have that agreement, conflict will continue because the underlying visions are contradictory to one another.

In the short run, someone is going to have to win and someone is going to have to lose regarding the question of what bitcoin shall be. Hopefully the losers can rally to a new flag and make other crypto(s) successful for the niches they have in mind. In the long run, we all win by building all the pieces of a full-fledged cryptocurrency financial ecosystem, with many different altcoins thriving along with (not in conflict with) bitcoin.

Whilst we fight over the technical details, the competitors are gaining ground on us with their technologies. We need to resolve this matter, and move forward with whatever solution benefit the majority. This is a nice thread, but it shows a deeper problem.

We need a faster mechanism to resolve smaller issues, or we will lose the competitive advantage. A decentralized permissioned blockchain, will have a defined development structure and they will make decisions quickly.

Interesting thread. We might be able to achieve a kind of "conductive wire" of ideas with this chronological ordering of threads about block size and related issues. It will be interesting when this is all over to go back and see how people's minds and ideas developed throughout this "Great Schism", as OP calls it Smiley I'd like to contribute: this was one of my favorite threads.

Great, great idea.

For my part I would like to beef up the rap sheet against one Gavin Andresen and shine light on the trail of evidence which supports his indictment as Bitcoin traitor and persona non grata.

Here is Gavin's history of attacks on Bitcoin using the block size as a proxy and purported motivations:

[famously Bad Ideas]

More on the way...

Right, we do need more entries in the 'WTF were they thinking' category.

Keep'em coming!  Let's use the original title (if available) and OP format.

Re: Prioritized transactions, and tx fees
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1314.msg14750#msg14750

That hard limit is going to have to be bumped up if/when Bitcoin takes off.  463 transactions per minute wouldn't be anywhere near viable for a worldwide online currency.  We, at least, need to be able to handle the number of average transactions per minute that paypal claims they currently average.

+1

Scaling to high transaction rate has always been my main concern about viability of bitcoin.  I'm much more concerned about scalability than government shutdown, for example.
