It is looking as if there isn't much one can do to forestall "early adopter problem" complaints.

Basically the very same people or kind of people who end up making the complaints seem apparently pretty much determined to set themselves up to make such compliants later, simply by refusing to adopt things early.

Simply making sure they know about new blockchains being launched has not been working as a means of getting them onboard early to forestall their later complaints.

Looks like they deliberately wait until the train has left the station so they can then complain that the train left the station without them.

So their complaints about early adopters of bitcoin are pretty much moot: it seems evident they would deliberately have avoided adopting it even if they had known about it.

Yes there's probably two groups complaining:

1) There are always people left behind on the station. Some people might get in on time for the next "train", but just as many will be left behind. So it's different people complaining every time. This is why a block chain reset is pointless.

2) Some people are inherently risk-averse and would never get into a new train, though that doesn't stop them from complaining afterwards. Somehow they feel they should have the same benefits even though they don't take the same risks.

Are there any active new blockchains?  How does one get made sure to know about them?    I am aware of namecoins.  Any more? Any using merged mining yet?
