Well, Bitcoin had a good run. Ultimately, big government stands in the way of self-governance and that comes in the form of regulating ingenuity to death. The majority of people are indoctrinated and cannot see the value in this evolved payment system.

Who can disagree? Bitcoin is fucked.

I have a bitcoin address that anyone can send BTC too, so I'm going to post it
on my sig because I think someone is going to randomly give me their BTC:

That always ends up being the most popular response to the truth. Get mad at whoever tells it. Good one.

More predictable sarcasm which is totally off point. No wonder Bitcoin hasn't crashed yet. Good job.

I did a quick check on your previous posts, half of them are swear words/insulting someone or something.
Clearly you are serious business.

If OP cared to look outside his little thought-box, in this here VERY SUB-FORUM, there are EVEN MORE well thought-out arguments than his as to how government regulation could HELP Bitcoin (the CFTC thread in particular...)

Puff puff, you'd better pass for good on that stuff dude.  Sometimes it makes you think you're thinking, but really you're not.

Actually you gave me an idea. I shall try to ignore all jr and sr members and most of hero members too. All the donators and VIPs go on ignore for sure and not being unignored under any circumstances, maybe with one or two exceptions.

Then maybe unignore a few if they are quoted saying something worthwhile. Who knows, it could make this board at least resemble what it was a few years back. Would it work?


You would be reading the phrase many times "this user currently ignored"

lol i guess that is better material.

Ad hominem, and clearly you want people ignore me because my opinion doesn't compel people to buy Bitcoins. lol, so obvious. I would follow suit and ignore you as well, but there's a difference between you and I. You're lame, I'm not.

sounds like you're the one getting mad; at Bitcoin's success.

I don't feel you put much thought into this topic tbh.

I'm actually basing this off what Bill Gates said yesterday on Fox Business News. He did not specify a government, but I'm assuming it doesn't matter, they all behave the same way. Regulating Bitcoin exchanges for the purpose of intercepting the free market, bogging it down, and thus making all the innovations of Bitcoin to be rendered no longer innovative. Sort of a "pick your poison" fiat or bitcoin, it will end up being the same thing.

What would I stand to gain from that attitude? Who actually is angry at Bitcoins success unless you are reliant on a corrupt tax system where you benefit? Since I am not, I have nothing to be mad at about Bitcoin succeeding. Problem is, it has not succeeded and is in a spot where I feel it is impossible for it to succeed, so I don't know what the fuck you're going on about.

I watched the video a few times (both high and sober) and each time, I got the EXACT opposite out of everything Gates said.  And all i got out of those older codgers was a bunch of ignorance.  I dunno man.  Different Strokes.

No; I tried.  You still end up seeing people you don't want to see in quotes anyway, and I found I spent way too much valuable time actually clicking ignore.  So I just let my brain click the button.

I guess that's our difference. I only watched it sober.

Seems to me like an endless blacklisting war.  Here's how I look at it.  When newbies come in they always bring up the same concerns over and over.  They either learn about bitcoin and mature or they leave.  Threads like this, and the general childish tone the board has taken on recently are an indicator of new users who are trying to understand it.  These are the people that can be won.  Not because we want to sell it to them, but because when they find the answers to their questions, they understand the magnitude of what they have stumbled on.  When the board is peaceful again, you'll know we've mostly assimilated or rejected the current wave exposure driven newbies.

A government might be able to stop it's residents from using digital fiat to buy and sell bitcoins.  That won't stop the rest of the world.  Good luck with a treaty banning honest money.  Also, unless we go cashless, bitcoins can and will continue be used under their nose.
