@theymos, I don't understand why you don't apply the same criteria in these threads ...

I decided that he harms discussions too much to be allowed to continue. He posts more than Atlas and his posts are of lower quality. When he argues about something, he ignores all of the arguments of his opponents and just repeats the same nonsense over and over. I suspect that he may be intentionally trying to stir up drama in order to hurt the forum and the community.

The ban will not expire automatically. I may review it later.

Well I guess I'll just won't buy any BFL product due to my policy of restrictive speech!

Thanks for assuming I was not intelligent to shift through the shit to find the information that was real.

I'll just wait for the next generation and put my money somewhere else.

Then everyone want's bitcoin to be the great answer to the ill's of the system and to bring free trade but to limit free speech.

Na I'll trust the devil I know

Thanks

Of course! You must be an idiot to pay BFL in bitcoins. They don't honor full bitcoin refunds. This is already a proven fact!

1)  Crow will be eating if BFL ships.

2)  here is Josh Zerlan's latest trolling of my bet thread, again with moderators telling me that I'm the one out of line: 

Haha by the end of the month is the only thing Bryan Micon, the "professional poker player" is willing to wager now.  From "It's definitely a scam! No doubt about it!" to "Well, by the end of the month." in the span of a month. 

and then just now:

Also willing to bet BFL will not ship by 3/15 (ides of March)  Sgt Spike

If anyone has offers, such as "hey Micon, i'll bet you my 50 coins vs. your 25 coins that BFL ships at least 5 customers 350 Mhash/Joule+ ASIC devices pictured, tested, and working by the end of March"  go ahead and throw them out here.

Don't let trolls in this thread deter you from offering something.  All bets made so far have been very Gentleman-like between the bettors.  Contrary to some early trolls, there is nothing wrong with putting something out there and having the other side say no.  Also, nothing wrong with quick negotiation of terms so both sides are happy with the bet (until it settles Smiley

so if anyone wants some near-term BFL will ship action, I'm open to suggestions and very much want to take the "BFL won't ship in near-term" side.



Just gonna quote the above for the inevitable back peddling that Bryan Micon is sure to do later. 

So now it's "I very much want to take the 'BFL won't ship near-term' side." which is a far cry from "BFL is a scam!  I am positive!" 

See, if Bryan Micon wasn't a liar, then taking a bet for near term, long term, forever-term would be a no brainer.  But since he's unwilling to do that, he's clearly demonstrating the fact that he lied from the beginning.  It's fortunate you all are doing escrow with these bets, since he has a history of welching on his contracts and deals in the past and is a known poker scammer. 

Anyone willing to do bets with him should definitely do escrow or he'll rip you off.




isn't something supposed to be getting bumped today?  and it wasn't a betting thread.

Even if he is proven wrong on this one (and I think he will be, eventually), his batting record will still be roughly 10x better than most regular posters here who gave Micon the same shit when he warned them about pirate, hasking, mybitcointrade, why-I-love-patrick-harnett and half a dozen other once respected members, that are now all known scammers.

well watch out btc community, we have one with his eyes open.  Puppet I respect your difference of opinion on this matter, and even more so I respect your clear thought on the matter even if you believe BFL to be completely legitimate.  I have a feeling when this one goes boom, it will be very hard to deny my accusations in the future.  The more and more Josh trolls me, the more I start to uncover.  This looks pretty shady:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=89902.0

and I can't get over the fact that when I want to post in a BFL-thread about my scam accusations, a mod (likely Gmaxwell) swiftly comes in and deletes my comments.  When Josh Zerlan wants to troll up my betting thread again, it's game on.

pretty weak Btctalk mods.. pretty weak...  gonna force me to spin up another machine and get my man Eric on building out a new bitcoin forum.  The BFL-friendly censorship is not cool.

part of the fraud that is going on right now even if BFL ships tomorrow is the advertising:



no mention of a pre-order, just as if you get X hashing power for $X.  The google pay-per-click ads are also shadily listed as such.  At the very least, BFL is likely using pre-order money to fund R&D.  I mean, what did they need this "private venture capital" investment for? 

http://www.prweb.com/releases/2012/6/prweb9611889.htm  <--- press release from july 2012 announcing, vague reference to "private venture capital" and then a huge headshot of money collection as "pre-orders" = this company just takes in monies and hasn't sent anything back.  It would be Luda to send them any more $ at this stage before a product gets shipped.

Pretty sure it's not a requirement to mention that something is a pre-order in a web banner ad.  If it is, please link to the relevant laws stating so.

stop legaling it up, it's extremely misleading and no matter what you bet on that is clear.  potential buyer thinks "I buy X gh/s for X using X power" and starts doing calculations. 

have you read the initial press release?  vague and scammish sounding IMO:

http://www.prweb.com/releases/2012/6/prweb9611889.htm

by contrast let's take a look at a press release from a real btc company with a real round of funding, Bitpay:

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/bitpay-expand-bitcoin-processing-space-190000470.html

first sentence lists investors.   No piece of evidence alone is enough to convict, but it all keeps adding up more and more scammy with each new piece of info.  Sonny, Josh's conduct at CES, Pre-order dishonesty, vague press release, constant missed deadlines with pre-order marketing spending same or increasing...
