Why don't you eat your own dogfood and require people to pay a nominal BTC fee to prove they're not spammers?

I don't have BTC yet.

My CPU miner is not expected to process a block for about 50,000 days at the current difficulty.

I have not sent money to an exchange to buy BTC yet, but when I do, I expect the transaction fees to total $30.

I have been trying to get my computers configured in a 'secure' manner before taking the plunge. Just this past week I started signing my e-mail with GPG (PGP compatible). I have bought a USB drive so I can back up my wallet in a safety-deposit box, but don't have a computer using full drive encryption yet.

TL;DR Sometimes getting all of your ducks in a row takes time.

Anyone that doesn't like the newbie restriction should go create their own forum without the restriction and gather up all the newbie users that don't like this one. Sounds like a viable business opportunity to me that doesn't involve buying a bunch of rigs.

Why stifle the community at such an important time in Bitcoins growth? Bad move.

Well when you have a bunch of anonymous trolls deliberately trying to incite panic I think it makes sense to take measures to restrict the nonsense.

Well, a bunch of anonymous speculators have been doing the exact opposite (shameless bullish propaganda) for months without being blamed by anyone on the contrary. I want to make it clear that these people are not representative of bitcoin.

Bitcoin does not care whether it's exchange rate with the dollar is high or low.
There is absolutely no notion of price in the Bitcoin protocol, and it will work just the same whether the USD/BTC exchange rate is at 100:1 or 0.1:1.

Don't buy into the stories of people pretentending that they are protecting the exchange rate in order to protect Bitcoin.
This is pure desinformation.

I don't agree with this either! it will take ages for me to be able to post and will certainly cluttter the "newbies" section up with spam and other irrelevant stuff.  Also, lots of bitcoiners use this forum to be contacted about their mining pool etc. and people wouldn't be able to contact them.

I originally thought 50 posts was cool and a reasonable hurdle, but after 10 or so highly relevant and value added posts, I'm exhausted. I'm thinking 20 posts might be better.

I actually think the time between posts could be increased to more like 5, along with a reduction down from 50. If you can crank out a post a minute, you know they are garbage anyway.

I'm just a newbie, but I thought I remember seeing something about dark pools. If you are going to dump 9.5K bitcoins, wouldn't you use a dark pool so you didn't crash the market. It's doesn't help the seller that his coins are selling for smaller and smaller amounts.

Also, if you are concerned about holding coins during a crash, is there a way to put in the equivalent of a stop loss order with the exchanges? I.e., get me out asap if the price falls under $X. So you don't wake up and see you've lost 50%.

Plus, any seasoned trader knows that if you know there is going to be volatility, you can make money. Make volatility your friend. Put in lowball "bids" and amass coins at the bottom of the range. Larger orders at increasingly lower, and potentially ridiculous bids.

Well shit, that solves 2 minutes of vast confusion.

Funny

It was about 3 minutes for me..
I was in the 5870 thread looking around and I was like how the heck do you post a reply.

Anyway I have 3 5870 cards mining.

950MHz/370-390 mhash/s
950MHz/370-390 mhash/s
1GHz/400-420 mhash/s

The 2 950 cards are in crossfire or they would be running 1GHz as well.

But as it stands the shader temp on one of them reaches 100°c at the voltage required for 1GHz, so I run them at 950MHz.

I posted a few entries in jgarzik's cpuminer thread and even posted code that has been pulled into the cpuminer git tree. Clearly I'm no spammer so please allow me to continue posting.

Why stifle the community at such an important time in Bitcoins growth? Bad move.

Combination of peer pressure and greed is what I can see, but I hope desperately to be proven wrong either with an alternative method of keeping trolls down which allows for equality no matter who is friends with whom, or an reasonable explanation of why there simply was no choice but to cut off a forum from its original open discourse right after a huge price dip.

I want for decentralized currency to succeed and it would really be a shame if bitcoins downfall and inability to be that light in the darkness boiled down to a few forum admins that got led away from their original objective because their eyes were replaced with shiny gold bitcoins.
