The BIG blockers were neither coming from a good place,

Same place as you, mon frere.

All the justification needed. How soon you forget: Censorless. Permissionless.

Absolute twaddle.

Which, of course, is why they needed to be purged from public discourse by the high priests of the Bitcoin information venues. Roll Eyes

It grows 50gb/year.
In 5 years, you'll have to download 500gb data to start your own node. And if you already say "fuck no i am not doing it", now imagine how would it look like in 10 years.

 In 5 years, technology and infrastructure should hopefully have further matured to the point where you start up Bitcoin for the first time, go and take a nice deuce, come back to your system a few minutes later, and should be mostly good-to-go.

 Downloading 500gb for a node 5 years from now should be such an absolute non-issue, it's embarrassing that people are seriously considering taking a backwards step right now, and failing to see the larger picture.

 And you wonder why I'm legit taking crazy pills  Undecided

Imagine how I must feel reading this response. Funny world, Bob.

Funny, funny world.
Think of this Bob, JJG, Jbreher and I all agreeing on something. For something to be so silly that we all agree with ease is massive.

300kb blocks are crazy.

I like lightning as much as the other but why handicap Bitcoin for no reason and put all that risk on a truly untested technology.

If you don’t have a deep understanding of:

1. What money is
2. Functions of money
3. Monetary history
4. Money properties that fulfill its various functions

Then don’t you dare criticize Bitcoin.

And the more you learn about those 4 things, the more you realize bitcoin was designed by people who know what the hell they're doing.

Correct me if I am wrong.

Well, I don't know the current situation, but some years ago, gmax stated that core no longer verifies back to the genesis block, relying instead upon a centralized checkpoint as 'good enough'. Still downloaded, just not verified. Weird.

What is so special about this price (3600$ Bitstamp and 3700$ Bitfinex) that we sit here for 1 month?!? Is this some major resistance that will turn the tide or what? What are the buyers waiting for - another bart? It is silly and greedy to wait with cash for a few % more at this ridiculous price. Well, at least the buy support to 3200$ increased significantly. Do these "buyers" realy believe their bids will be fulfilled:

Most people are still scared because the bear market COULD still go one more -50%.

People need to regain trust again, which will start the accumulation phase.

If the accumulation phase is over then we will transition into the next bull run.


Imho we will probaly have the next bull run starting in around 20+ months

We need to be careful guys.

Arguing against 300kb blocks is playing right into the big blockers hands. 

The real argument is about maintaining stability of the protocol unless there is a really good reason to change it.  And there arent good reasons on either the big or little side.

Thinking about starting a youtube channel. As I mentioned the other day, the mouse utopia mirrors current world events too much to simply write it off as coincidence. There is so much crazy shit happening every day that could be interpreted in that light, I'd never run out of material.

Game over man..support level broken..back to the bear channel we go.

Way to much profit to be made everywhere and anywhere else besides bitcoin atm. Sorry folks..you have to keep suffering. Apparently there are still weak hands that need to be shaken out.

The BIG blockers were neither coming from a good place,

Same place as you, mon frere.

The weight of the evidence does not support such a conclusion.  I was not trying to change bitcoin.  I was merely going with the flow... BIG blockers were not only trying to change bitcoin, but they were trying to change the whole process about how bitcoin changes were made in order to make changes easier to make in bitcoin.  Sure there may be a few of them that did not have those malicious intentions, but there was an overwhelming propagandizing that still goes on to this day.. both suggesting that bitcoin's governance is broken (using technical arguments as a pretense) and that changes to bitcoin's governance need to be achieved (though such arguments are becoming a bit weaker since they lost pretty decently and decisively last time around).

nor did they have justification

All the justification needed. How soon you forget: Censorless. Permissionless.

You are making shit up.  They did not have justifications, and they attempted to force the matter rather than attempting to get consensus and agreement within the bitcoin community.. so instead of working through bitcoin's then BIP processes, they went rogue.. and engaged in various forkenings in order to attempt to blackmail and coerce rather than attempting to improve through cooperation and presenting evidence and arguments.



Yes... we disagree.  There may have been some genuine exceptions, but a lot of the arguments were disingenuous, just like many of the arguments that you presented in this thread.  Of course, you cannot be the spokesperson for the whole of the BIG blockers and all of the nuances, but you did tend to take as many opportunities as you could to attempt to argue their various cases of whining phoney baloney.

for their dumb-ass talking points.

Which, of course, is why they needed to be purged from public discourse by the high priests of the Bitcoin information venues. Roll Eyes

That is a distracting argument.. .get the fuck out of here with your lame attempt at censorship proclamations.  The BIG blockers had plenty of venues to argue their cases, including in this forum, and they had plenty of venues to try to persuade folks to move to their BIG block forked, technically inferior pump and dump nonsense.  They have not been successful even with their BIG mouth whiny marketing attempts, and they have not really given up yet (including your desire to keep this topic alive), even though it is becoming more and more convincing, even for dumber money to see that they are just a snake oil scam... I am not going to discount their ability to pump again.. or their willingness to give up in their lame attempts to pump their shit and to continue to deceive sometimes innocent folks in putting money into that crap.

I think that there is more nuance in our various positions.. .so stating that we all agree with your rendition might be a bit too much to ask.   Tongue

The chance of a soft-fork to a lower bitcoin blocksize has effectively a zero chance of reaching consensus. However, the chance that the FUD about it blowing up and generating a bunch of negative press is near a 100%. Can we please just stop this and focus on what is important!

rather good thread emerging

I'm sure that there is more to the gmax description of the bitcoin blocks verification situation than your summary is suggesting, jbreher.
