I read your argument, and I don't even care about the topic - but it affords me a chance to get something off my chest.
What is it with you newbies and senationalist topics?
When the price of bitcoin goes down 40 cents, its "CRASH CRASH CRASH" not, "Hey, see a weakness at this level - what do you think?"
When you don't have any information, you take a random frantic stab and say "THESE GUYS CHEAT!! (I think, er, well maybe)" instead of "Anyone have a similar experience? What is going on?"
I'd love to see threads that weren't headlined in the most drama-fueled way possible. Or perhaps, this is just the fallout from 'reality' shows permeating cable networks, to the point where 'news' shows parody the very events they are supposed to be objectively reporting on. It takes restraint to not stir up the pot, and whenever I see one of these "Waving Flag - ALERT ALERT ALERT" kind of posts, I just have to wonder how much sugar they've had this morning.
Anyway, back to your regularly scheduled "BTC IS DEAD" and "IT IS GOING TO ZERO" crap topics.
It's the way internet boards are going these days. Reddit.com is a great example of how a good site turned into another sensationalist only trash heap. All the top stories either have misleading sensationalist titles, or point to sensationalist articles. It's pretty much Liberal Fox News over there.
