This is under the assumption that the block size wouldn't grow when needed, blocks aren't full without outside attacks so there's no evidence that when the time comes we won't increase the block size to a common sense size.

Well, other than the evidence that blocks were kept small the last time they became persistently full. Which, in itself, is pretty strong evidence.

Once the need resurfaces (and it most certainly will), how long do you think it will take to implement the necessary change?
That was a short spam attack period, you know damn well that was artificial and everyone knew it.

Yes, I remember people posting the addresses of the spammers at the time. That's the good thing about 1mb blocks, spamming gets expensive.
Big blocks are a disaster if there isn't sufficient utility. Say you had 32 MB blocks and only < 2 MB of actual traffic. Someone could easily spam 28 MB per block for peanuts. Sustained over 1 day: 4032 MB of garbage for almost free. Good idea indeed.

You seem to be postulating some novel mechanism by which one can examine each transaction, and classify it as spam vs. notspam. Care to divulge your criteria?

Your dumb arguments about what is "technically" spam and NOT, remains annoying - partly because this is well worn territory in which you have been shown to be attempting to continue to spread misinformation and to detract from the concerted sabotaging (albiet largely unsuccessful except for the purpose of continued FUD spreading) efforts of your Bcash butt buddies.

I forget you are often incapable of seeing the obvious*. Without a way to objectively classify an arbitrary tx as spam vs. notspam, any effort to reduce spam by keeping the block size small will -- by necessity -- reduce utility for notspam txs. Reduced utility in direct proportion to the ratio of notspam txs to spam txs. Your approach is counterproductive.

*Well, not really. I know full and well your inability to draw rational conclusions from spoonfed data. As well as your propensity to try to finish conversations for others. I still await the honorable and esteemed Lauda's reveal of the criteria to objectively classify an arbitrary tx as spam or as notspam.

I've seen some very nice hats that are not worn and are not in the signing campaign ..., jbreher!

Do you need new glasses?

My glasses are adequate, thanks.

I'm talking about the hat crushed on your bear's head.

You have it here if you want to use it.

Maybe later you changed it, because of the avatar that you are wearing now.

Yes. The avatar I am wearing now is proudly wearing the hat that xhomerx10 made me.

If it was urgent it could probably be done in 48 hours.   But it won’t be urgent.  

It ain't just a river in Egypt.

I would mostly agree with the bear here.
The last full block crisis resulted in inaction, to force people onto segwit.

Yes, but was the attrition worth it? Especially given the fact that it was all so unnecessary.

I presume the next full block crisis will result in inaction, to force people onto lightning.

Yes, but will the attrition be worth it? Sanity says no.

No one can say for sure what the attrition level would've been with a larger BTC blocksize. The Cambrian explosion in alts would've happened regardless of blocksize. It began well before BTC blocks were filling up regularly. Big speculative money would've found its way to the altcoin market no matter what.

And “resurfaces” is the wrong term as it implies that the need has previously surfaced, which it has not.  The need may never surface.

You've already banished it from your revisionist history?

There were some high fees in 2017. There was no need for a block size increase as demonstrated by the failure of BCH.

If it was “necessary”, BCH would have won.  

The result was a BTC dominance drop from an overwhelming ~85% to abut half. Are you prepared for a drop to about a quarter next time the stream is blocked? You're whistling past your own graveyard.

Do you actually believe that the value of Bitcoin is diminished every time some scammer comes up with ‘X on a blockchain’ and manipulates the price on some exchange with zero liquidity to create a meaningless market cap?

You are smarter than that.

Aww... ::blush::.

No. I believe that the value of Bitcoin is diminished every time its limitations surface in an orgy of nonfunctionality, driving actual use to other competing blockchains that can handle to load.

Addressing the issue is like balancing on a tight rope with the winds gusting and you cannot walk to either end all you do is shift your balance (the variable you control). I still have not seen a decent argument against dynamic recursive blocks. I've asked many times in this thread and never been linked to a good argument against them, maybe you have a link?

The wizards high in the Blockstream tower have decreed the larger blocks are impossible. And that is all you rabble need to know.

I guess everyone remembers that an obvious scam like ETH went to 1400 beer tokens per in the last bull market, and they're hoping their obvious scams will do likewise in the next.

The most distressing part was choosing not to participate in the initial crowd sale of 2000 ETH per BTC because it was such an obvious scam.  

1 BTC then would be 58 BTC today.

I hear you, I remember posting "WTF Pre-mine and a Dev tax!, FuckYou", or some such thing.

Well I guess the joke was on us, there were alot more punters than we would have ever guessed.

That may be true. However the time correlation between stream blockage and dominance loss is striking. As in: compelling evidence suggesting causality.

Funny way to suggest that Bitcoin is controlled by "the wizards high in blockstream tower" when BSV is obviously manipulated and controlled by Craig. Hell he needed his shit fork Satoshi's Vision and claims he is Satoshi. It's literally his "vision" he claims.

Well..you heard it here first. Guess bitcoin was a mistake after all. We all should probably just sell our coins and forget the whole experiment.

Other than that I kinda like the sound of being officially recognized as a 'rabble'. Things are looking up.

It's much more a political argument than a technical one.
Any such block change would need a hard fork, and that's not happening (unless there's an emergency).
Can't leave the OG's behind. Most wouldn't even go for it if it could be magically soft-forked in.
Even the newer people don't want the shitfest.

If history is anything to go by then we know that today's prices are irrelevant. Just look at Amazon crashing into the ground and now being the most valuable company in the world.

Not saying BSV will get anywhere, but still. Non-argument.

You mean when Amazon was being pounded into the ground by a market dominant, more aggressive competitor? 

Didn’t think so.

Oh and I also saw this yesterday. The ticket cost only 70 Pesos, which is about $4 ! The movie was good but I was a bit disappointed with what they did with some of the characters (Hulk & Thor). I know they wanted more comedy but I think they failed there.



Hey, while you're there, IMO if there's one thing really worth checking out in the area, its Teotihuacán's ancient temple of the sun (feathered serpent).  I've been to many ruins in Mexico but this ancient ruin city is quite special.  Its a 1.5 hr bus ride from the city.

This is actually a good time for this, there are those that would buy in just to flip the bird at tptb.

I would buy in and dump the pump if I could do it on another exchange. Cheesy

well catching up here I am now 2 hours behind schedule. time well spent I'd say.
