I just want to help make everyone aware that there has been a noticeable upwards spike in "problem" posts the last few weeks. While I am sure a fair amount of these are legitimate, the sheer volume of the posts, the content of some of them makes me think there are people on this board with agendas to help influence the price of BTC to the downside.... this technique is prevalent and used by hedge funds in a lot of stock market related online forums and there is no reason the hedgies and others would not use this forum towards the same ends. Remember, hedge funds can move markets and disinformation is one of the tools that they use. And the algorithms on bitstamp, mtgox, etc etc are probably not that difficult for some of their more sophisticated multi-million dollar trading bots to figure out and really drastically influence the price along with other techniques like misinformation etc. The current high volume of BTC transactions on the exchanges very likely attracts speculators willing to use any means necessary to move prices. So newbies beware!

I agree

We could do with a rest bit from doom and gloomers at the moment.

However many are still buying btc and hardware to mine.

Dispite all the new competition KNC is on the verge of being sold out of their 2nd batch of 1200 units down to under 300 units.

People’s actions speek volumes.
