I have a feeling it was a SomethingAwful goon that sold Bruce on this rumor.

I doubt it.  Goons love posting about their Bitcoin related exploits.  Even if you're right, it doesn't explain why Bruce chose to simply remain silent and blueball everyone as the weekend drew closer rather than letting people know it wasn't happening (for whatever reason).

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

Didn't realize it was to easy to scam a scammer, though I've seen funnier stories about that:
The Powerbook Prank

I just read that, took me a while to get up from the floor from laughing so much  Cheesy

Honestly, who else would be nefarious enough to sell Bruce on this? Nobody else cares more about Bitcoin and stirring up its respective community than they do. It seems they care more than us at times. Nobody else would be as irrational and senseless to waste their time on such an affair; provisioned merely by the suffering and reactions of others.

I love how their topic went from being a comedy thread, and quickly turned into an investment thread. Lol, I actually think that was what was behind all the recent attacks.

Heh, converting the money and energy of your parent's food, support, and basement into internet diarrhea since 19-whatever, eh?


The irony is, regardless of what that guy did, his actions resulted in a HUGE boost to discussing and collaborating on better Point-of-Sale systems. So, thanks SA for getting us focused on a much needed topic, even if it was obviously your original intention.

I'm also still a bit lost on the whole SA goon lied to Bruce == Bruce is a liar and should not be trusted. Someone please explain?

I just got banned by Bruce from bitcoin people Grin
This happened after I posted a question about this "restaurant" out of curiosity.  I wonder why...


Their first rule is you do NOT TALK ABOUT it!

You can not roll a BitCoin, but you can rollback some. Cheesy

In my defense, I don't predict wildly. I hardly make predictions; however, I am just going to take the high ground on this one.

How's that new financial group coming along, by the way? This project of yours has a name, I'm impressed

They're not related. With SA's history of internet detectivity, they uncovered a lot about Bruce Wagner's background before this stupid restaurant thing. Ignore the address (SA after all), it's actually a pretty legit look into Wagner.

I think you're closer to the truth than you realize here.  I'm a noob over there (I joined just to participate in their bitcoin thread), so I'm not hip to all of their lingo and inside references, but I've gotten an inkling of something going on that's verrrrry interesting.  I think they're actually the ones collaborating to manipulate the market, but not in order to crash it -- they just want to create false volatility so they can make money at short-term speculation.  Think about it: all the recent market drama happens at the same time as bitcoin community drama?  It's a little too tidy.  I just wonder how many times they'll do their pump/dump/crash/buy cycle before they get bored and the price goes back to its normal, naturally increasing trajectory.

I know all that, but how did THIS

http://buttcoin.org/has-bruce-wagner-pulled-off-the-financial-biggest-scam-on-the-bitcoin-community

make the SA goons trolling Bruce into THIS

"can we all agree to stop defending bruce now?"
"If mr. Wagner tells you anything, don't believe it unless you can validate it for yourself. He's lost his credibility."
"If you believed Bruce on this, than let this be a lesson for you. "
"Why do people still listen to Bruce or have anything to do with him?"


I know I'm beating a dead horse, but I'm just not following the "being trolled by someone is more proof that you're a liar/scammer" line of thought.
Meh, whatever.

hes still a fucking scammer, the fact he was tricked this time by a member of SA doesnt change that fact....after all, SA had nothing to do with the mortgage scam he was running.

he killed his own credibility with his actions.
