At the time of posting this 3 upvotes, 7 downvotes. Plus every comment in the post has been downvoted. Telling me that the smarter people are going to downvote my whole thread and everyones comments so they can post and upvote themselves using fake accounts. Can't say I'm surprised this got messy. Can't say I'm not amused either. So basically I'm giving away 1 bitcoin to the biggest scumbag. Whatever, lesson learned. It was worth it. I honestly had more respect for people. Egg on my face.

Either way I figured you guys would get a kick out of it. Notice the disgust and rage. People don't like bitcoin. I know posting this here will greatly fuck with my experiment. But for some reason I want to. Maybe I'm hoping you guys will flock to it in masses and upvote it, but that's stupid. However if that's how it happens then I'd rather one of you get it. And not some dipshit as a collective joke.

i read a few lines on the page you linked to but that was about it. it seems like a waste of time.
i never quite understood reddit and therefore never use the website. i am not the cool i suppose.
i guess it is comparable to another website i never use by the name of 4chan?

you might as well attempt to herd cats then to use that website to have a discussion.

The only thing cool about reddit are the subreddits. The more mainstream subreddit are just a bunch of kids trying too hard to appear cool on the Internet.

I said fuck it and decided to scrap it. I'm giving the coin to the only person who was curious about it and wanted it. Otherwise it would have been some scumbag, I just know it.

Reddit is a funny place, you definitely need to brush up on your http://www.reddit.com/help/reddiquette . I'm surprised you got away with it so lightly.

It's basically equivalent to the first thing on the list, pleading for votes.  Except you're trying to bribe your way to votes instead of just pleading for them.  Maybe you had good intentions, to raise awareness of bitcoins, but it still looks tawdry.

Whatever, to me it looks more like telling them "If you dance around like idiots for 24 hours I'll give one of you $15 at the end".  It's not much fun and kind of insulting to the community.

I'm sorry you see it that way. However I have no problem insulting the reddit community so it's very possible that I'm doing it subconsciously.

Oh great... I'm even more of an outcast than I thought. Figures I'm in a 0.01 percentile :-/

0.1 BTC sent to your signature address... (because I don't have enough for a real donation.)

Ummm there is Bitcoin subreddit? http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/

Saying that Reddit, as a whole, doesn't like Bitcoin is a bit unfounded don't you think?

Trying to bribe people for upvotes is going to get down-voted into oblivion, if you had even the cursory understanding of the culture of Reddit you'd have known that. Let those of us who are actually Redditors do the submitting...

Your Reddit submission is clearly against Reddiquette, maybe that's why. Oh, and it also encourages users to downvote the OP itself.

DO IT
