Hi!

I'm new here.   Just wanted to say HI to everyone and introduce myself.

Just learned about bitcoin and am fascinated...

Anxious to learn about it.

What's the best RSS feed I should subscribe to... to read all the best news about bitcoin?

( As a sidebar:  To the moderators of this forum: How do you keep spambots out of your SMF forum!? I ran one once and disbanded it because of the constant fighting the spambots. )

Anyway, Cheers from New York City!

Hi Bruce, welcome.

This forum is the best place to hear first about new merchants and such. I just set up a google alert for bitcoin too, I had been checking search results frequently, the alert should be more efficient I think.

Funny thing about this post is that it could be sent to just about pretty much any kind of internet project's forum.  Just have to copy your message and replace "bitcoin" by the project name.

Two hypothesis :

1. you are not a human being, but a spambot.  The fact that you mention spambots might be a way for you to get some information about how admins fight against you.  Then your human designer will be able to fool them better.

2. you're gay.  Posting a first message and saying "Hi.  Just wanted to introduce myself", sounds like a hyper-social behavior, very characteristic of gay community.  Plus, you announce you live in New-York (as if anybody cares) where those people are not rare, and your signature is a weird "Bruce & Ed", which is difficult not to understand as a way to express that you live with an other man.

So, which is it ? Smiley

Nice Grondilu, I missed all of that. It's pretty early in the morning here, I'll take that as an excuse.

Looks like a real person who has a form letter introduction for self/site/career promotion. I think it means he doesn't really love us, so don't get your hopes up guys.

Oh snap! He even mentions keeping spambots out. It's over, machines win.

I guess the more this forum gets popular and have an important number of members, the more spambot designers get interested in publishing there.

What a way to draw conclusions about people, and whether true or not if he's gay, what business is it of yours? What a way to greet a new member - confront him about his sexual orientation.

This guy has been discussing Bitcoin on twitter for days. He hosts a talkshow. He's not a bot.

Ooops.   If true, I apologize.

I was just being sarcastic anyway.  Don't want to offend anyone.

I don't care if he's gay.  I was just trying to find an explanation for the weirdness of his post.

But how do we know a bot isn't running the talkshow?



Sorry, Bruce-bot, we were a little hasty.

Dude that is NOT cool. I think you should seriously consider redacting your welcome post as it is beyond embarrassing .

Bruce is here because Ive been speaking to him on twitter about bitcoin. Sorry for such a rude introduction Bruce from a fellow bitcoin user I assure you that is not the normal sort of behaviour around here.

Well, that was funny anyway.   Tongue

Just don't take it too seriously Smiley  Also, if someone is very interested in an internet project, I doubt such a bad welcome could prevent him from getting more involved.

This is a man known enough, right?

People from the TV are often caught in such a collision with the reality on the Internet.

It's easy to mass-remove accounts that are older than a few weeks, have 0 posts and mention a website in the user details. Post spammers are more annoying, but usually catch the admin's attention even quicker.
