1) It's also a statement that the network can be started with X pre-mined coins. This X can then be arbitrary - let's say "the community" decided it should be 2 millions instead.
2) Listen to half-dozen of forumers is far from "a global Solicoin users' votecast".
3) If I get it right, the issue with ArtForz was that he said to found a bug, CH told him to "take a hike" and... well... he took.
4) Claims like "we decided to switch of the blockchain" is the same as saying that solidcoin has what bitcoin hasn't: A CENTRAL entity able to pull the plug on it. For that I will use Euros or USD, much more trustworthy than forumers with nicknames. Well... by making it proprietary CH already stated he "owns it", so let it run as his scam and let whoever wants to fall for it... but by such rules and capabilities, solidcoin becomes nothing but a utter scam.
