His post:

Theymos defamed Bitmain by spreading the lies about "Asicboost". Many people had shown enough technical evidences to show it's a blatant lie and Bitmain clearly stated that they were okay to see it being disabled, yet Theymos continued to spread it.

Theymos defamed the UAHF by implying it's not Bitcoin, while being okay with the UASF, which has much less support than UAHF.

Theymos defamed the UAHF as "controlled by a single company". Yet he had nothing to support this defamation. UAHF is open-source, and unlike UASF there will be no dictator in UAHF.

I don't thank Theymos did not know how reckless the UASF was. It contradicts to everything Bitcoin stands for. UASF is, in short, "You have to follow Core's decision to split Bitcoin chain even if only Core & Theymos support it."

Theymos also laughed at the failure of XT/BU/Classic. Although I don't support BU, I have to admit that BU devs are good people. At least, they did not force users to split the chain when there was no enough support, unlike notorious UASF. XT/Classic were initiated by the most respected Bitcoin devs.  Without Core "flying to China too lobby miners against 8mb, later
Classic plan", XT/Classic would have succeeded. Theymos, why did not you defame Bitmain when they signed HK agreement with Blockstream to dismiss XT/Classic?

Satoshi explicitly told us that we should raise the blocklimit and he even wrote the code for us. Why even quotations from Satoshi are being censored by you these days? Just because it does not fit your narrative?

Theymos, I know how many Bitcoiners have been banned by you in Reddit for opposing UASF, how many posts have been hidden by you for supporting SegWit2X, let alone UAHF. You have done the worst thing that the enemies of Bitcoin were expected to do. I really doubt if you are still the "theymos" in 2010. I spent much time reading old posts, and you were ever polite and respectful to different opinions. How did you become so arrogant and reckless?

Mr. Theymos, censor to fork your UASF. I'll stick with Bitcoin, thank you very much. I kinda doubt that you'are actually going to stick by what you say here, but if you do, it only seems like good news.

theymos is entitled to his own opinion.

To my knowledge, no one has ever been banned for posting their opinions on this forum. Although some have been banned for repetitively making off topic posts that happen to contain their opinions/political stance - it is my understanding that it will take a lot for this to happen.

I disagree with theymos' conclusion in the last paragraph of his post, primarily regarding that what Bitmain is proposing would be controlled by a single company, as in order for UAHF to be even possibly remotely relevant, it will need to be supported by many economic entities other than Bitmain -- this is based on basic economics. If theymos does not retract this particular statement, then I believe that his reputation and standing within the community will be negatively affected -- this does not require him to support any other implementation than what he otherwise supports, and he can continue to be against UAHF if this is his true belief.
