Cunicula is a known troll. This was his lame attempt at starting a "class war". He is always very insulting and puts other peole down.FOR THE LOVE OF GOD
, hugolp! This is simply insulting. "Troll" doesn't mean "person who disagrees with hugolp". Cunicula has consistently posted insightful and interesting comments, observations, suggestions and proposals. He is clearly capable of thinking outside of the Bitcoin religious sect mentality and contributes far more to the discussions than most other members of the forum. The only time I've ever seen him lose his temper is when replying to Atlas' and your own grandiose verbal diarrhea, which almost everyone who has a neuron can agree is a net positive contribution to the forum. I challenge you to back up your statement with evidence of Cunicula ever being "very insulting" to anyone that isn't you or Atlas. It's absolute insanity that this "troll" nonsense is coming out of a "Hero Member" and "Global Moderator". If anything, Bitcoin needs more thinking people like cunicula and fewer dogmatic people like you.
I would suggest that if you want to have a rational conversation you stop saying things like:
your own grandiose verbal diarrhea
If anything, Bitcoin needs more thinking people like cunicula and fewer dogmatic people like you.
Second, this post is the best example of cunicula being a troll, for example:
the c) is arbitrarily integrated into protocol. we cast our votes by deciding whether we want to install updated client with specific changes or not.
Yes, but afaik this system has never been tested. If the system is effective that should be demonstrated by putting it in use. Without a demonstration it seems like cheap talk to me.
This is just ridiculous and FUD. Forking is a reality, and in fact happened at the beginning with a bug in the client.
Also, a voting system that assigned votes in proportion to bitcoin holdings would be much better. Why should the interests of people with no wealth be dramatically overrepresented in the voting process.
Of course people can use their money to game the process (creating additional nodes), but this is an exceptionally cumbersome way of giving the wealthy a voice.
This is a bunch of bullshit. Creating additional nodes is very easy, specially if you are going to profit from gaining more votes. If you are going to create a voting system you need to identify people, which is a bit contradictory if you want to have a pseudo-anonimous currency. This type of bullshit is what you call "thinking people".
Also, the above statment is just trying to create "class warfare" mentality. People is not forced to use Bitcoin, if they dont like it or think its unfair they can go and use another currency or even create their own. Bitcoin is open source so you only need to change a few lines in the code and you are set to go. The Bitcoin community has done all the work for you. It does not get easier than that. How is that creating a domination elite?
The guy is a troll, and not very intelligent at that. For example, BubbleBoy was a troll but one you could be entertained with because he was intelligent.
