I've always long suspected this was the case happening on this forum. If you aren't familiar with them here is what I'm talking about:

http://forums.somethingawful.com/

They are "trolls" who troll each other  regarding funny shit and the like but they once in awhile take up causes that attack other people as we've seen today. I think there should something on a "users status"  on this forum that signals the member is associated with SA ( as we do with scammer labels) so other forum members know who they are dealing with ( in a good or bad way ). If this isn't done I think we are setting a bad precedence for the future of this forum and yes Bitcoin in general. At the very least create a sticky that lets people know who are current forum members and their affiliation to this group.

I know making such a request will bring them out in full force but it's a risk I'm willing to take  Grin

Not a Bad Idea. The something aweful crowd is full of paid disinfo trolls. But their posts can be slightly amusing.

Why does Bitrebel have 65+ Ignores?
Because Bitrebel says things that some people do not want YOU to hear.

I propose the same method of procedure for jews. Got to flag those subhumans; they are a threat to the public.

Yeah, and the Bitcoin Forums is full of nutty conspiracy theorists of your kind.

No, we should all be thanking SA!!!  THEY did all the due diligence on Bruce Wagner that none of us ever did.

We may not like what they found, but don't shoot the messenger!  Many people are crying "witch-hunt," but if you actually take the time to read all of the information they've dug up, you'll see that there are many, many issues that make Bruce Wagner appear to be a serial fraudster.

What really disgusts me, is the heavy handed censorship that is now taking place, burying all the Bruce Wagner articles and deleting the rest.  Not that it has had much credibility in the last few weeks anyway, but bitcointalk is now pretty much a seething pile of fraud and scammers, and any real discussion or dissent is immediately wiped out.  Sad, really.  Whatever happened to the "free-market" and "libertarian ideals?"  

If anyone at SA is reading this, I'd be happy to donate some money to your forums.  Of course, only if you accept bitcoins!

As a German i wholeheartedly endorse this idea of tagging and flagging these horrible people, so they can be immediately recognized and eventually processed.

Yes, sir.  I agree, sir.  Please don't send me back into the bit-mines, sir.  I'm afraid my graphics card can't take any more.

I'd buy an SA account if someone sold them for Bitcoins. Sad

(and no, it's not because I lack a credit card, it's because it's easy to write Bitcoins off as imaginary money to spend them on silly shit)

Problem is I'm not sure I'd trust any goons to not just take the payment and then delete their wallet for other goons' enjoyment at my expense. Sad

Spam and trolling will continue to be removed, but it is not a crime to come here from SA. Maybe these newcomers will bring with them some interesting and useful ideas.
