I've reported this thread and no action has been taken. The discussion is now only pertaining to mere gossip about a certain individual and his previous actions. No longer is it truly relevant to Bitcoin. I highly suggest the mods consider moving this to the off-topic forum.

You didn't seem to have a problem with the first 14 pages/5 months of the topic, when it was talking about exactly the same thing (the Bitcoin show / Bruce)? It's ridiculous and Stalinist to hide a topic because the subject has become embarrassing. If anything the topic belongs in Bitcoin Discussion more now than it did before, because we are discussing the relationship between Bruce and the wider Bitcoin community rather than just plugging the show.

Also there are lots of threads already about Bruce in off-topic. It's clear that the market demands a thread in the main forum about him.

If you reported it and no action was taken, don't you have your answer?

Agreed.

The threads on this forum cumulatively reflect the mindset of the community.  If you don't like the reflection, then it is telling you something about the community.

This whole Bitcoin thing is experimental.  It serves as a pseudo-realistic example of the free market in action.  The whole Bruce thing needs to be out there.  In 10 years, we can look back at all of these threads and see just how much greed (or lack thereof) there was, how community members treated each other, what peoples' intentions and motives were, etc.  Censorship should only be demonstrated in extreme cases where someone's life or reputation is demonstrated to be negatively affected without just cause.  In my opinion, there is more than enough just cause to speculate about Bruce's character.

There should be one thread in general discussion about it, if only because it can help serve as a reminder to people, and a warning to would be scammers.  When the free market is done with it it will fall off the page.

You reported this thread a little over 2 hours ago and no action has been taken yet.... OH MY GOD THIS FORUM IS TERRIBLE!

It takes a while to read through about 7-8 pages of posts that have been made in the last 24 hours.  I know I haven't had time to do it yet, and I'm guessing it's similar for the other mods as well.


Edit:
Just glanced at the time you made your post, and it was an hour after you made the report.  You need to chill out.
