I've met Josh twice and didn't see anything strange about him. Once he was drunk but was most of the people at the meetup.

Saltyspitoon is right, some people got their BFL Miners early and I was one that did.


No complaints other than the early BFL's were kinda shoddy, but with a few tweaks, they kicked ass and still are.

@Bullionado

One man's rampant hate is another man's constructive criticism.

In my opinion, newbies are best served by being strongly warned not to blindly trust anything, and especially not anything on bitcointalk.org.

You can learn a lot here, and probably make some good contacts.  As another guy said, there are a lot of people here who have good ethics and are trustworthy.  Even those who are not often have valuable information.  But it takes time and effort to sort things out.

For all the 'hate' that Thermos has drawn, or outwardly appears to have, he did try to implement a trust system.  I'm not sure how effective it is at this time or how much potential it has for effectiveness as it ages, but it seems like a worthwhile experiment at least.

Thats fine and all if you trust theymos.

 IMO, the first thing people should do here on these forums is delete the trust inheritance, and build their own network of trust starting from zero.

 The default trust list is... interesting.

site STILL promotes BFL

hmm for $6000 a week or so, would you let a "scammer" post an add on your forum?

hmm... i sure could use $300,000 extra a year. im almost out of hooker and blow money... theymos might be too.



well i thought the forum is not owned by a single person? I believe I read it somewhere that the money that goes to the forum is for community benefit... "ONLY"...

'Reading it somewhere', and especially if that somewhere was linked to bitcointalk.org, is of questionable value when it comes to understanding reality.

Theymos might have produced some sort of verifiable accounting, but I've not paid much attention.  It's not terribly important to me, and I figure that if he wants to pocket it or distribute it among his friends, that's exactly what he'll do.

For my part, I've never made any contribution to bitcointalk.org.  Partly this is because for a while at least there seemed to be a trend of people being 'donors' mostly for the purposes of using it as a confidence inspiring ruse targeting newbies.  Also, though, because there are a lot of other valuable and worthwhile efforts in the ecosystem which are less well funded.  And which rely on more honorable methods of funding as well.

i wanted to get new forum software so we would not get hacked again. shock theymos just kept the money and we got hacked again..

In my experience, upgrading software is not at all a sure-fire way to increase security.  Often enough it is counterproductive in this respect.

...the same fucking way too...

Ya, that was one of the more amusing things I've seen lately.

I didn't even bother to change my password after either hack.  I'd probably just have to do it again later on after the next one, and if someone obtains it from the hash (unlikely) the worst they can do is pretend to be me.  Then I obtain plausible deniability for my ravings.  What's not to love!

Obviously I don't share either usernames or passwords on any site, and certainly not one like bitcointalk.org.

Xian01 - the worlds biggest hipocrit who was backing up bfl even when it was obvious to the rest of the world it was scam! Get back under your rock troll, your just as much in the wrong has cockroach josh and thermoflask!

Where's the cock roach? As he ran to the woods yet before someone gets him! He really should be looking over his shoulder everyday from now on! Seriously, everyone at bfl too because you have pissed so many people off I'm surprised he's still breathing as it is. Cockroaches are hard to kill though apparently!

Thermoflask not defending himself either? Bet it was him who deleted my comment because he's josh's bum buddy. Josh loves going on a picnic with his thermoflask

 Excuse me ? I'm the troll ?

 If it's not clear to you that I turned a complete 180 on my support of Butterfly Labs, then there is absolutely no way to reason with you.

 Maybe it was obvious to you. Some of us took a little bit longer to get the memo, and are, sadly, trusting people who had that trust abused and broken in the most duplicitous and malicious manner possible.

Told you so! And you abused me!

TOLD YOU SO! You trashed me on the butterfly web site too. Some people can't see the woods for the trees though, sorry, most people!

Anyways, where josh the dirty cockroach! He's gone quiet lately the dirty little spunk bubble. He truely as no moral compass and neither did bfl, what ever happened to the old bint Jody at butterfly labs, did she ever wake up to what a load of bullshit she was being fed by CEO/coo cockroaches or is she apart of the scam too?

Some people just can't use there own brains they were given! And just allow them to be taken away! Which is why the world is where it is! Fucked!

  ... and so I've now been told. Can you move on now and give it a rest ?

 I honestly have no recollection of whatever slight I've committed towards you to be the recipient of so much vitriol.

 It seems I owe you an apology as well.

 If I could offer some advice, I might recommend turning down the intensity of your rhetoric here. Your noise:signal is confusing to take in and decode.

Maybe.... ;-)

Everyone makes mistakes I suppose, its a shame people don't pay more attention to what I say though because however unbelievable the things I say, they are true...

Queen of UK, of Netherlands, Rothschild's, Rockefeller's are all men behind the curtain and need hanging for global crimes and genocide. Its time to root out this evil blood from the human race before they finish agenda 21!

Agenda 21 is how they are going kill us all off and its well in motion now.

Again though, people will say I'm crazy, people may say I'm mad, but that doesn't change the fact that what I say is true!

Down with the cockroaches ;-)

P.S - your forgiven xian01, just rooting out the cockroaches

So, you see an ad for miners on a forum. You're new to bitcoin, and know nothing about bitcoin mining, but can see it costs several thousand dollars.

You then click on that ad, and are led to a website promising you wildly high returns, with no effort, just a bit of capital expenditure.

You see that anything you order won't be shipped yet. You also are again reminded of the price.

Despite being reminded of the several thousand pounds it costs for this magical machine that prints money, you make no effort to even Google the company, buy bitcoins blindly, without knowing anything about them, so you can buy one. You immediately pay, again, without doing even the slightest bit of searching.

If that situation applies to anyone, well, a fool and his money...

"Hey, do think I should try that secure wallet run by the friend of the admin over at Bitcointalk.org?"

A:  http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/1pw46j/someone_just_transferred_0095_from_my_inputsio/

Well , he did reimburse...
But this has scared me.
There will be a limit to the amount he can reimburse , I should probably leave it for blockchain.
