I didn't say "that the forum governance endorses freedom of speech" nor do I care. I just asked how is the merit system restricting your free speech, and it doesn't seem there is any restriction. You can still speak, you're not banned or otherwise "punished". What exactly are you still complaining about?

Lot's of members got punished. I got punished with negative trust for instance for speaking about ignorance of Lauda's scammy nature. However the Legendaries calling me a 'cunt' and a 'motherfucker' get away with it. Lots of members have been tagged negative for 'shitposting'. You don't call that punishment?

Of course you don't care about it. You probably belong to the clique who get's away with everything.

The question was about merits, this being a merit-related thread. How does the merit system affect your speech? You can't seem to come up with anything so I think it's safe to assume that it doesn't.

Most users seem to be more concerned about reduced ability to whore out their rank than actual positive uses of this new system.

You are whoring out your profile like anyone else with your signature, aren't you?

Uhm... what Huh

The above.

If you know who's paying for my signature let me know. They seem to have missed a few years of payments.

Does the merit system not affect the mode of speech on this forum at all according to you? Then you must agree that it is better to abolish it. For it was installed exactly with the goal to do that; affecting forum speech.

Not all 'whoring out' of signatures has direct payments involved.

Merits may affect shitposters aiming at higher ranks. It's still not a free speech issue in any conceivable way. They can still post their shit. If we follow your fallacy we should just close the forum because any rules can be twisted this way.

For example, you can still insinuate that I get paid for my signature and there is fuck all that merits can do about it.

You contradict yourself. If merits affect what you deem 'shitposting' they are affecting free speech. Besides that you are totally missing my point. I am not against restricting certain modes of posting but against the abuse of the systems that are installed. I am against the installing of special merit and trust powers at the subjectivity of a privilaged few members with lack of ethical disposition, who thus abuse those powers.

Yes, I can insinuate that and it will not affect your forum possibilities because I have no super merit or trust power. But if one of the privileged members insignuates things about me it can, and often does, have consequences for my forum possibilities, even if the insinuations are not true.

There is no contradiction. "Affect" is not the same as "prevent". Shitposters can still shitpost. I suspect some won't when they lose the financial incentive to do so. Not being paid for free speech is not the same as losing the right to free speech. To use your own example, if you stand in Times Square and yell "Trump is a cunt" you shouldn't expect to get paid for it.

You keep talking about abuse but you are failing to provide any proof of how this hypothetical abuse can prevent you from speaking out within the rules of the forum.

For example, you can still insinuate that I get paid for my signature and there is fuck all that merits can do about it.

There you go, free speech problem solved, you can keep shitposting. Let's tackle world peace next.

And ALL newbies are spammers, right?

I don't lack ethics.  You don't see me handing out large amounts of merits to people who are financially helpful to me, do you?

Hate it. It's another system designed for abuse by a happy few who have unlimited merit power, like the trust system is already abused by a happy few with special trust power. If there were any alternative I would not spend another second more on this forum.  Angry
No, it isn't that at all.  This whole thing was designed by the owner of the forum, as far as I know, and it's hitting noob shitposters right in their greedy fucking wallets--and I love it.  The more I recovery from my flu and the more lucid I get, the more I'm starting to really like the merit system. 

You all know I don't suffer shitposters lightly, but I'm more than happy to give out some merit points to noobies if they make a good post, and I'm making it a point to do this when I see decent posts.  What I will never give merit points for are those generic "bitcoin is a digital currency that change my life...." shitposts that I've seen all too often.  If the merit system does absolutely nothing else, I think it'll eliminate those.  I'm hoping, anyway.

The reason I'm smiling along with TMAN is that I don't have to neg the shitposters anymore.  I was never comfortable with using the trust system to do that, but as hilariousandco pointed out, it was one of the only weapons we had.  I'm happy these days.

i think the current system is good and also helpful. JUst come to think of it as something that will rid the system from fake accounts and also those trying to abuse it. for me, I will give it a try, and for sure the admins and moderators are more than happy and willing to make minor tweaks on the system for the betterment of all the users. Observe and you will find a sudden decrease in the activities of some users.

Edit: to answer OP's question - I'm rather ambivalent. Most users seem to be more concerned about reduced ability to whore out their rank than actual positive uses of this new system. Hopefully this will pass.

Thanks for your answer on my thread. Did you already answer the vote too?

I agree with you, there are many users who don't know the uses and potential of this system because they fear they wont rank up and disturb their earning on this forum. I wont be a hypocrite by telling I'm here not for the money, I do, but with this system, the forum will be a place full of people who work hard and good for getting money (at least if they re here for money).

I will make the infographic after I reach 100 votes, and will share some statistic and conclusion based on my thread, and will post it here and in theymos' merit thread.

Well I feel more challenged about the merit system, it make people here in forum to give quality post and eliminate those who are doing spam messages. As for me I like it, it have good intentions why it's made. Looking forward for the success of this new system and that this forum will be pool of helpful information about cryptocurrency.

You keep talking about abuse but you are failing to provide any proof of how this hypothetical abuse can prevent you from speaking out within the rules of the forum.

A recent example can be found here. But there are plenty of other examples brought to the fore by others. But as soon as such cases are posted the established members tightly close their eyes, put fingers in their ears ears, and start stamping their feet, yelling; 'not true, not true, you cunt, motherfucker, shitposter'!

I repeat that I am not against restriction of speech but against the abuse of the systems that are installed for that restriction. Is it on purpose or simple lack of intelligence that you seem to keep missing that point while I post it so explicitly?

I am against the installing of special merit and trust powers at the subjectivity of a privilaged few members with lack of ethical disposition, who thus abuse those powers.

And ALL newbies are spammers, right?

I don't lack ethics.  You don't see me handing out large amounts of merits to people who are financially helpful to me, do you?

Although I found your signature text suspicious I have not seen any disgusting abuse of trust or merit power by you. Thus you may feel non-included when I speak about "privilaged few members with lack of ethical disposition, who thus abuse those powers" and feel included in 'the privilaged few members without lack of ethical disposition, who thus don't abuse those powers'.

But we all know to which respectless members I refer. Do you really want me to mention them one by one? They indeed treat all newbies as spammers and all non-friends as scammers, handing out negative taggs by the dozens, guilty or not.

The reason I'm smiling along with TMAN is that I don't have to neg the shitposters anymore.  I was never comfortable with using the trust system to do that, but as hilariousandco pointed out, it was one of the only weapons we had.  I'm happy these days.

Nonsence. You've abused the trust system and loved it! Not to speak about the contempt and disrespect you show to other members with your faul language. You would definately be in the list of abusers I talked about above.

cunt, motherfucker, shitposter

Maybe no one really gives a shit about your personal vendettas and this is certainly not the topic for that.

Seeing how you're already halfway through your rank-up just by being your genuine asshole self - I think you're defeating your own crusade.

Thanks for your answer on my thread. Did you already answer the vote too?

Yes, I added my vote.

Probably because you have 10 accounts and are earning the average monthly wage in a week where you are from... but now that is changing.. you don't like it so you get all cunty and pissy and attack everything. So enjoy your posts as you are going on ignore again cunty

I agree with you. Seems that all people who is trash talking, feel pessimistic and negative thinking about this system indeed are the account farmer, spammer, etc. Just imagine if we got 10 full member account, 0.005 btc x 10 = 0.05. It is a lot of money per week, that is why they re afraid of this system because they can not earn easily right now or later.

People like this should know, instead of talking bad about this system and suggesting to erase this system, it is better if they learning, making a strategy, and taking their game to an upper level. So in the end, they will get a merit they are looking for.

I get that everyone likes/dislikes the system for whatever reason. I also understand that some of you have known each other a while and have had interactions resulting in emotions.

What I don't get is (supposedly) intelligent people acting like they're in a schoolyard.

The idea is excellent, and who cares if it will slow down ranking. The only really annoying thing is that merits have not been given proportionally to activity, a choice which has created too many injustices.
