Just by the very nature of finding this forum and understanding the security and irreversibility of Bitcoin enough to know it's easy to scam people with it puts even the SA goons and other detractors at 120 or higher IQ, IMHO. They may be quite young and unemployed, but that doesn't mean they're not smart.

I would almost imagine most forum users of *any* forum are at least 80 IQ. People under 80 IQ are pretty rare on the Internet. For one, they almost always parrot what others say and don't do any critical thinking, and rarely find the comment button or even use the Internet for anything other than Netflix or Youtube. I've seen people like this use the Internet, they just don't even understand how it works. It's all "magic" to them.

I mean think about it. Almost everyone commenting in this thread likely knows how to torrent, understands what a VPN is used for, and can surmise why the federal government cannot shut down Silk Road. Do you really think anyone under an IQ of 120 can lay claim to those three things and still be posting in this thread?

I think Bitcoiners seem intelligent because the only people willing to converse about the concept of a decentralized currency are intelligent, whether they are detractors or promoters. People with less intelligence simply don't care about their money or finances. There will never come a day where they start to care, either, they'll want other people to take care of it for them. Bitcoin is best positioned to replace the petrodollar, it just needs some more things to make it more secure like Trezor and/or two-factor authentication built-in to the client. Then you'll see more adoption by those under 120 IQ.

I also think IQ tests can be gamed. I was able to "raise" my IQ by taking one test out of the blue for 120 and then later took the same model of test (with different questions) after 5 days of on-and-off online IQ testing and got 133. I imagine I could make 140 or higher if I put some effort into it.

Not nearly as funny as TsimFuckis.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

The real fun is having an official IQ of 79......that and being thrown off research project they ran in the late 70's in liverpool... supposedly tasked with finding a correlation between IQ and criminal behavior.

Too many trolls for too long. Nothing phases anyone here anymore. They're numb to it all like a battered wife. They just keep marching on praising each other for their vast intellect like Khan Noonien Singh from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

If you are finding stupid people. Consider going to bitcointalk gamble, loan; coin chat #begging. Occasionally one or two in #main. You have to know that those people don't know their way to irc or reddit.

I am replying coz  a guy in coinchat and just dice ( same guy) is making me face palm every single line of his chat
