Free speech refers to the amendment stating that the government won't make laws restricting speech.

It has NOTHING to do with what and who is allowed on a message board.

This board could use some serious cleaning, IMO.

Free speech is a concept that exists outside of the US constitution + amendments.  But this board does need cleaning.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

Ban the SolidCoin promoters and there would be little left to take the piss out of.

Maybe then we might hear some decent ideas for new cryptocurrencies or related tech.


And those pooping SolidCoin logos were very funny. Anyone objecting to them is wound up way to tight.

It is up to the users not to engage or encourage shitstorms in the first place. If you are looking for nanny mods there are plenty of boards to choose from. The fact that moderation goes unnoticed just shows some maturity.

I don't like over moderation either but we can't talk about a client update or a logo design without wading though an ocean of insults and fluff.  It's at the point where trolls are preventing any actual cryptocurrency related discussion.  So we need someone to moderate.

Taking the piss out of a project that is just a troll of BitCoin with many additional bugs is fair comment. SolidCoin supporters are trolling this board promoting their nonsense and they are getting trolled back harder.

SolidCoin, IXCoin, IOCoin have so far brought nothing new to cryptocurrencies. NameCoin is the only one that has so far been at all innovative.

The concept exists, and doesn't apply here. It applies to laws being created. Message board moderation is not an infringement of free speech, and we seriously need more of it.

Good luck...

Determining what constitutes content of "worth" or "value" is entirely subjective.

I have an entire thread dedicated to banning the use of the word "troll" and in my opinion it is a thread that contains some of the most valuable content on this forum.

You may say it is worthless.  To that I would say, you're worthless.  And round and round we go.

This is true.
Free speech has absolutely no legal application on forums, nor does a "concept" grant you rights.

Yes. God forbid anyone should say what's on their mind.

Everyone should shut up, watch adverts on TV, and buy crap they don't even want. The slaves have no other purpose.

You think people should stop posting about alt currencies in the alt currency section?

Certainly not. I think people should go think of some then come here and talk about them.

There really wasn't anything alternative or innovative about the ones I listed, they were just minor tweaks to BitCoin.

I think a post voting system would go down well here. That way it leaves it up to the community to moderate itself. Posts with a enough negative votes would automatically be hidden, in addition to replies quoting that post. That would take care of a lot of the mess I think.

The current reaction of the majority of the users is perfectly legitimate. All of the posts relating to so called alternates are in fact just about lazy rip-offs with no improvement.

There are plenty of mathematical problems out there which could be useful for a working system, not just sha256. If a author shows up with a sound concept I'm sure that it will be met with great enthusiasm but so far the only thing we've got is some lame-ass bullshiting by some faggot already on my shit-list.

But since it is cheaper to either copy bitcoin or engage in pseudo-intellectual discussion about some unscientific nonsense you get what you ask for.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

Free speech is the freedom to speak without censorship.  That's all it is.  Sometimes it applies to laws, sometimes it doesn't.  I'm saying we need to balance people's ability to speak without sensorship with other people's ability to speak without being drowned out by punks.
