These ponzi posts and threads are entirely overwhelming the gambling board....

So what? It's a gambling board.
Silly Ponzis are not a cancer, they are more like an annoying, stupid commercial.

Seems like already 70% less of ponzis, don't you feel it? Smiley

Much much more air to breathe Smiley
Yah I noticed that too, I think it's wonderful to be honest. Not that I think ponzis
shouldn't be allowed, but it's annoying when 99% of all threads in gambling are such.

A ponzi section would eliminate all the ponzis threads from the Gambling section while letting the ponzi fans alone
They're discussing that in some other thread in the meta, I thought it was actually going through.
Maybe they decided not to though.

They may have think it will give ponzis some respectability and some bitcointalk endorsement to allow a whole section for ponzis

I think it would be better to have a ponzi section

When everyone knows that Ponzi is a Ponzi, it is not Ponzi.

Ponzi require lying to people about what they are putting they money into.

This is just another weird lottery, lest ones are going to lose.

If the ponzi-man tells everyone it's a ponzi - it's still a ponzi Wink
...except here in the BTC world, the ponzis have learned to be honest about their ops - they'll skim or scam (just like gambling sites etc.) and let everybody know this.

Given enough greed and stupidity + label it "a game", they found the perfect mixture of victims to rip-off.

As I said - only in the Bitcoin world can you witness all that. Bizarre at best - but makes great profts for some.

Why does a ponzi require lying? Check the ponzis around here, they're honest about being ponzis. You get paid based on other people's investments, that's how a ponzi runs. The last person that invests loses his money. That being said, most ponzis ( all ) run away with people's money when they've made enough.

These ponzi posts and threads are entirely overwhelming the gambling board. I understand that people need to make their own decision when "investing" and that ponzis are identified as a gamble but it's beyond that.  There is a reason 3/4 of that board is filled up with PONZI PONZI PONZI. These operators are making a quick BTC. No reliable member has posted to start a ponzi. That should be pretty telling.

Is it possible to move these topics to another child board? Maybe "Ponzis" or "Scammy business ideas" Or even to "Games and rounds" under gambling. Anything to get rid of this clutter.


It is clear, Ponzi scheme is obviously, as a marketing organizations, so that you can not extricate themselves, know that the topic is very fiery, very happy to discuss this topic with you.

Yes and that is the biggest problem

It could be fixed by not allowing newbies to create new ponzis or having escrows, ponzicoin tried escrow then the ponzi shut down

Thing is you can't force them to be legit, just like the ponzi owners can't force anyone to invest. If people don't use ponzis - they will disappear, if people use them - they'll stay. Let people do whatever they want, at their own risk.

I am not in favor to forbid ponzis games; drugs are horrible but the war on drugs makes it even worse..
I think a few disclaimers and a layer of protection for newbies would be improving the ponzi experience

Exactly. I don't think Ponzis are the problem, the people investing are choosing to do so, investing their own money.
However there should be some stickies etc and warnings for the new people around here. It's no fun if every other newbie gets fooled by the promise of getting free profits.
