After 10 years of bugs, hacks, scams, bans, civil war, breakthroughs and fortunes gained and lost, Bitcoin has spread like a virus around the world and has set the stage for a new financial system. Bitcoin's future has never been brighter, but much of the fun and positive spirit that got us here has been abstracted away. It's time for that to change.

The mission of Bitcoin 2019 is to reignite the BTC community by advancing shared goals and highlighting the people and organizations bringing them into reality. From the biggest miners and most active core devs to Fortune 500 companies and darknet markets, this will be a yearly gathering of old and new friends that inclusively reimagines the narrative around digital value and manifests an amenable answer to the question: “Why does this technology matter?”
This blurb is immensely annoying. There is the usual mix of well-meaning core types and total fucking scammers speaking.
Can't see the point of going myself, but you?

first time that I ever heard about the kind of usage of goofball that you refer to, so seems to me that your interpretation must be an extreme regionalism or perhaps a small group of your friends

You made me look it up.

https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Goof

Definition #2 places it firmly as a Canadianism but the other similar definitions are less specific and I was led to believe it was used in this sense in the USA as well. Maybe south of the border only criminals use it. It's more common in general use here.

It obviously has its roots in the prison system but it was first brought to my attention when I was playing in bars years ago. Someone told me it was an acronym for Go On Or Fight.

It is always taken very seriously. To not respond immediately is considered a sign of weakness and cowardice.

As for "a small group of my friends", I don't generally associate with the type of people who use that expression unless I'm being paid.

Just thought I'd give you a heads up. (Damn, is "heads up" another Canadianism, based on hockey?)   Huh

Fair enough.  I still don't really see any problem with my usage.. and even calling someone goofy tends to be a lot nicer than calling them stupid or retarded.. but anyhow, I suppose it can depend upon context, too.

From your link and explanations, I recognize that in certain circles such an expression could be misunderstood.. but it still seems kind of niche.. so I still don't see why anyone here should get MOAR offended by either my past usage in the way that I had attempted to use it or my likely continued future usage of such term based on what appears to be kind of obvious general usage. 

Sure, as I already suggested, there already exists a kind of intention from me to be aggressive with such namecalling and to insult by the common usage meaning of "goofball" or whatever other variant that I was using that had "goof" as the root word... and further, as many of us recognize, there is already an internet culture that causes some kinds of name calling that would less likely take place in the meat space - especially if the parties are expecting to have a continued relationship with someone.   

In the meat space, we might be able to engage in avoidance or just not be in the same circles with certain ideas... also, sometimes in the meat space trollers will frequently get shut down fairly quickly by the whole group too, if they were to start spouting out political and racial agendas in a group that is talking about bitcoin, for example.

Many of us likely realize that on the internet, sometimes, there is a need to be more assertive in certain circumstances to make a point.. and of course, there is discretion there, too, and the dynamics on the internet are different from the meat space, too.  Of course, sometimes on the internet, we will be kind of stuck with each other, which also might happen in certain meatspace circumstances as well, for example relatives at a christmas party, a wedding, a funeral, a picnic or some other similar family gathering.

Personally I have no problem with this, I mean that everything is susceptible to being hacked and almost every day there is news of this type.

Actually a lot of those words are actually just what the rest of the world calls things rather than using Americanisms.

Serviettes are serviettes in England, Kenya, Mexico, Canada, and most English-speaking countries around the world. Only Americans call them "paper napkins".

Bacon from the back (loin) of the hog is called "back bacon" in most places. Only in the USA is it called Canadian bacon. Some Canadians call it "peameal bacon". The Brits often call side bacon "streaky bacon".

Only in the USA is synthetic cheese-like garbage called "American cheese". The rest of the world calls it "process cheese".

In most of the world "football" is played with the feet, not the hands. Exceptions are Canada and Australia.

Funny language, English.
_____

As for the word "goof" meaning a lowlife, it's apparently used in the USA as such (although perhaps mostly in prison) but with a slightly narrower definition.

Here in Canada it is used for pedophiles, informers, rapists and other unreliable or undesirable scum. In the USA it seems to be used mostly to describe pedophiles who prey specifically on young boys.

Like 'cutlery', 'serviette' is not a word for the English gentleman, but for his servants until they know better. He would say 'knives and forks' or 'silver' and 'napkin'.

How To Get On In Society by John Betjeman

Phone for the fish knives, Norman
As cook is a little unnerved;
You kiddies have crumpled the serviettes
And I must have things daintily served.

Are the requisites all in the toilet?
The frills round the cutlets can wait
Till the girl has replenished the cruets
And switched on the logs in the grate.

It's ever so close in the lounge dear,
But the vestibule's comfy for tea
And Howard is riding on horseback
So do come and take some with me

Now here is a fork for your pastries
And do use the couch for your feet;
I know that I wanted to ask you-
Is trifle sufficient for sweet?

Milk and then just as it comes dear?
I'm afraid the preserve's full of stones;
Beg pardon, I'm soiling the doileys
With afternoon tea-cakes and scones.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English-speaking_world

258 mil native english speaking in US,
60mil in UK
25 mil in australia
19 mil in canada

So, by this stat 258/360=about 72%, so I don't get your lamentation of us vs "them".
72% is not americanism, it is a majority and the rest is region-specific, sorry.

Re the offending "goofball", NOBODY uses it in US to describe pedophiles as others told you already.
"Goofball" is mostly associated with Disney character "Goofy", which pics were posted above.

In addition to meaning "silly" it was also used to describe a drug 60-100 years ago, but NOT anymore.
I have no idea where you are getting this.

maybe youre thinking of what is actually labeled "cheese food" or something like that for the fake stuff here in the usa.

food labels have gotten better in the usa but they still mislead as much as possible.

That's because gentlemen use tableware made of silver not stainless steel, and proper linen napkins not paper serviettes.  Cheesy

In Mexico, "servilleta" is used for both linen napkins and for paper serviettes. No class distinctions there.

Here in Canada "napkin" is used for both the table linen and for a feminine hygiene product. Sometimes the former is used as the latter in an emergency.  Grin

I still believe that calling you a cunt could be a good thing, even though, from my personal perspective, there seems to be a quite a bit of "me too" over-sensitivity about that word in some places... Also, from my perspective, a bit of oversensitivity about the use of retarded.  

So, even apart from cultural differences, context and intent matters too.

A nice Indian chap was once showing me round his town. True story.
He kept saying how good the 'semen factory' was for the local economy.
'Oh yes, almost all the men of the town work at the semen factory.'
'Oh yes, we supply most of the state with our high-quality semen'.
and so on.
Eventually we passed a huge dusty plant with lorries going in and out, giant buildings and noise.
and a massive sign saying 'Ashok Cement Co. Pte Ltd.'
Ah, I said, Cement!. Yes, he said looking at me like I was slow beyond words. This is our famous semen factory.
