At the very least it is an effect of free speech on this forum.
If it has the effect of turning 'free speech' into 'substantive speech' I'm all for it.

The entire "custom hardware" section is off-topic bullshit because there is no ASIC that actually exists and untill one does the whole lot belongs in speculation or gambling. Giving "hardware vendors" any credibility than is neccesary fuels the massive preorder scamming thats going on.

The whole section needs a similar warning to the long term lending section to beware of scams.

It wouldn't be appropriate in 'custom hardware' anyways cuz it would be production hardware. Smiley

Something built to the user's individual specs would be custom.

I think you're confusing custom with homebrew.
I've always inferred that the forums was to discuss custom bitcoin specific hardware rather than general purpose gpus or fpgas.

I agree with Monster Tent's comment.

No confusion whatsoever.

When you're ordering a stock product from a company, you're ordering production hardware.

When you're ordering a product from a company, to be designed and assembled to the specs you provide to them, you're ordering custom hardware.

When you're cobbling together for yourself out of bits and pieces, and spare parts, which you design and assemble yourself, that is homebrew.

No self-respecting homebrew enthusiast would farm it out for someone else to do it for them.


You, sir, are the one confusing custom with homebrew.
