A guy I know over there reads these forums and sent me this:

In response to another user on BitCoinTalk.org saying people are getting paid to troll us.

I don't know what to think about it.

A group of people, whom everything they do with Bitcoin is trolling, laughs about loons thinking they're paid to do it, suddenly posts a screenshot "proving" they're paid to troll? HAS TO BE LEGIT!

I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

This is quite clearly a joke.

It saddens me that the OP doesn't realize it.

You're in luck. FreeMonies is building a spaceship via only using Bitcoin to finance it.

Sorry I didn't see this post was moved here until just now.

I looked really hard at the screenshot before I even posted it and found no obvious signs of editing. Either it's real or a really good forgery. (I used to frequent SA before getting banned, so I have other screencaps to compare it to.)

As far as the spaceship jest, yes I am. Feel free to donate once I set up a bitcoin receiving account and service! You might think it's ridiculous, but I see it as the way of the future.

Lastly, I am skeptical about the message, but the guy who sent it to me has always been an upstanding dude and has been incredibly helpful to me and several other goons when it comes to anything web related. I realize the timing is suspect, but honestly is there a time where this coming to light wouldn't look like a troll? (ironically, if it is this transangeles guy probably just make a few more $) SA members have been shitting on Bitcoin for as long as it's been popular. Perhaps even longer?

He dumped that whole stipend into Bitcoins to spend, just like I did. Idk why you're mad, we're adding to the fiat-pinned value.

Considering that the op was banned from SA for misappropriating donations sent to his website it is more likely to be a combination of anger and being easily trolled screwing up his judgement.

Holy shit. That ought to ratchet up the paranoia a notch or two. Did you use the same password for your website and this site? That could explain how they got in. Never use the same password for multiple sites fellas.

very simple


OP is a troll in itself

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.

Not to derail, but did anyone ever find out who was paying people to tweet negative things about bitcoin? My understanding is that it was really happening.
If true, I want to know.

If it was, it didn't originate from SA.  It takes a true believer to do that.
