Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.

Aaaand this is why you don't do "one-man" escrows.

Anyone can be hit by a bus at any time, regardless of how trustworthy they are or seem.

I would say more at this point, but I need to start my tour, people are waiting for their bus.

WTF? There was a time when I thought certain people could be trusted on this forum based on their past history and good feedback.

Let this be a lesson to me - NEVER trust ANYONE online. Bummer.

Quote from: theymos
Active and very trustworthy global moderator of this forum.

Quote from: Kludge
If John K ever commits an immoral act, I'll become an uncompromising cynic. Level-headed, humble, and genuinely interested in helping others, John is by far the best escrow agent to ever exist within the Bitcoin community, and otherwise an incredible asset.

Quote from: ninjaboon
JohnK is a fellow Malaysian and highly recommended for escrows.

Quote from: TradeFortress
Trusted escrow service. Make sure to verify that the escrow addresses and contract are actually signed by John! Don't just go "oh, it looks like gpg, hopefully it's legit"

See why public positive ratings are bad and why we should stick only to negative ones?

To conclude, here's the most dangerous one in my opinion (positive feedback from 2014, months after John has gone MIA):
Quote from: theymos
Held BTC for the forum.

Please, people, quit posting "positive trust", this is a scammer's godly tool.
Time to remove all those ratings, too.

[OVER] RIDDLES 2nd edition --- this was claimed. Look out for 3rd edition!
I won't ever ask for a loan nor offer any escrow service. If I do, please consider my account as hacked.

He held 1000 BTC for a long time and then returned it at around the time of that rating (after annoyingly being MIA, but still). This is worthy of positive feedback in my book, and it's strong evidence that John will probably not intentionally scam anyone.

I agree that it's unprofessional for him to leave everyone hanging, but sometimes life happens and these things become unavoidable. (I don't know his exact circumstances.)

I 100% agree, and am sure you slept a sound night after he finallly sent back those coins.
I understand why you would put a positive entry in YOUR book.
What I disagree with is the fact that this feedback made it OUT of your book.

The next user subscribing here will see that you endorsed John K. (again) publicly, and thus will be tempted to trust him, when his trustworthyness is highly questionable, now.

Just don't allow public +Trust. All big-time scammers had an extensive list of +Trust.
-Trust is the way to go.

EDIT: btw, theymos, you still have a +Trust rating posted for TradeFortress "in your book"...  Cry

I'll try one last time to make my point.

I register for the fist time on this forum.

"Bitcoin, cool! I want some, too!"
"Oh, a marketplace sub!"
*clicks*
"This guy has a high rating, all green, I'll buy from him, and send first, since I'm new"
"Oh, a scam accusation sub. I should post here now, I guess...  Embarrassed"
"I've been fucked by the whole community".

vs

"Bitcoin, cool! I want some, too!"
"Oh, a marketplace sub!"
*clicks*
"Ewwww, everyone has red ratings, that's horrible. I'm going to have to make my own opinion before anything else."
"Ok, this guy seems legit, I'll +trust him in MY book".
"Cool, now he's greenish, nice tool to remember that he's got my trust."
"If he fucks me, then I won't be able to blame anyone else than him and me".

As much as I know it takes a little stupidity to send first to some random "trusted" user on a random forum, this still creates confusion and suspicion, and could simply be avoided by keeping the +Trust private.

It's just unprofessional to leave people in the lurch like this. Especially when he's getting $2k in fees for just holding the raffle coins.

i think you are using the trust system wrong. It has nothing to do with trust.

Perhaps you could explain how to use the trust system then. How does the trust system have nothing to do with trust?

Clearly I need a lesson in the proper way to interpret a user's "trust" rating because right now it seems more harmful than useful.

I'm tired of waiting for my coin. Bitcoin lost half it's value since early January. IMO, coinroll should pay out the prize to the winners and wait for John K themselves. It's good PR.
he is one of legit persons here but his last 2 months are very disappointed so all are not good for him he must reply some one or mod must do about this

I have this bad feeling he is receiving chemotherapy and it's really serious. Otherwise, this total silence and no communication doesn't make any sense.
yes agree because now he is very old and after long visit to China And Malaysia may be some stress happen to him so he is unable to join here again

He's still holding all that raffle money? Can't Theymos contact him and ask him to send the money out? I think he returned the forums money he was holding pretty swiftly.
