I warn you . . . the quote I'm about to post may cause you indescribable rage. You may suddenly feel the urge to punch small children or kick puppies. If symptoms persist please consult your doctor.
...and if there is no central "bank" how do you suppose anyone can tell a real Bitcoin from a forgery?! And when "Super Bitcoins" come along, will they be worth more or less than the old ones?? hmmmm... I think I need to start a new website - ha ha ha - after all, the printer of the money, real or not, gets full value for his wares...
Why does this make you rage? Why should this make any of us rage?
This is exactly the kind of person we want using bitcoin, and what we see is that they simply don't understand it.
That's not a failure of the individual making the comment (who is likely over 40 and a casual computer user), it's the failure of bitcoin.
There is so much fucking hubris here about the "PLEBES WHO DON'T UNDERSTAND HAR HAR," but don't you fucking get it? These plebes are the only variable that matters for the long term sustainability of bitcoins as a legitimate method of exchange or store of value.
Unless you're happy jerking your pud about printing money for nothing with the rest of your "I just happened to have some powerful cards cause I'm a gamer" and "I'm getting rich cause I print money, BUY MORE CARDS, RALLY" and "This is the way of the future guys, really, I know it" bretheren, then you better hope to the fucking bitcoin god that someone more mature and a better man than you are out there trying to POLITELY educate people who don't understand it.
