We must convince all the "other" people to join pools now. We can't have the security of the network threatened by "other" people.

Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.

The thing is with Other, is they're not in the same pool.  So if the other hash rate topped 51% it wouldn't have the same effect as deepbit or another pool.

This is likely due to the difficulty readjustment and isn't close to accurate.

But I agree, we must stop this "other" before they multi-handedly take down bitcoin through a highly coordinated attack!

this graph is not accurate because of the difficulty increase today. "Other" has not increased by 6000GH/s overnight

No I am other.

Can we change "other" to "Anonymous" and have the media freak out?

Is this the chart from Bitcoin Watch?  I don't see "other" on the piechart over there now.
