I pre-ordered my BFL in March.  Did this many people really order over the next several months without knowing it was a pre-order?

I am not trying to be rude or offensive, but I take investments like this fairly seriously and always do my due diligence.  I am just shocked people would send large amounts of cash to a company without at least doing a quick search around the internet about.  I am really sorry for those who purchased not knowing it was a pre-order and the money was non-refundable.

They used false advertising banners for Eight Months in a row, repeatedly pushed the shipping date without offering refunds, failed to meet Any of their claim specifications, you get your pre-order Forcefully refunded if you make a public display of your anger towards them, They made a "pre-order" a "final sale" when it's not even a sale, they flatout lied about FCC certification, and repeatedly made Vague as FUCK statements to always cover their ass.

I placed a pre order for a "SHIPPING NEXT MONTH, PRODUCTS ARE IN THE FINAL STAGE OF DEVELOPMENT!, PRE-ORDER NOW!" jalapeno, at the start of Ocotober, When did i get it? I didn't, I waited for Seven Months before getting a refund

ButterflyLabs should be banned from advertising on this forum

BFL lied to me and unilaterally broke the contract I had with them. They shipped to customers who ordered in Feb 2013 before I received shipping on an order from July 2012. They are running an investment lottery. If that is not scamming, I don't know what is.

Would anyone change their NO vote to YES knowing what you know now?

I'm too nice to label them as scammers, but I wouldn't touch them with a 10 Ft pole ever again. So let them die a natural death when enough people feel they'd better not take the risk, but if they still want to, then caveat emptor.

I think they are less scammers and more just idiots who only *THINK* they can make ASIC's.  These are simple ASIC circuits, with horrible power draw issues.  Bitcoin mining circuits switch every flop on every clock cycle.  Most recent ASIC designs only activate small % of circuit at a time, and even then, they don't switch every flop on every cycle.  These things have power density higher than an i7 running full tilt.  That said, a good designer would be aware of this from the outset and would plan for it.

Not so much with the Kansas farm boys.
