<mizerydea> My thepiratebay.org account was deleted and only a single torrent was affiliated with it, added yesterday or the day before.
<mizerydea> The torrent was in relation to bitcoin and not illegal in any way.

Gah, it really fucking sucks when people in charge of or responsible for organizations, corporations, etc are incompetent. =/
I'm quite fuckingly disappointed in The Pirate Bay for this.  

The only tag I applied to the torrent was 'bitcoin.'

I see at http://thepiratebay.org/tag/bitcoin that there are still other torrents with the 'bitcoin' tag and therefore reference of bitcoin being ponzi scheme to justify banning of my account seems to be not quite accurate.

You should toss them an e-mail with some more information, sounds like you just ran into a couple of uninformed admins.

OP is trolling

sorry for the one liner but it had to be said.


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.

OP is trolling.

sorry for the one liner but it had to be said.

You can easily verify that I am not trolling by joining #thepiratebay.org on EFNet, type /bans and see the ip address listed above as being banned.  Also, you can verify that that IP address is location in Milwaukee, WI, where I live in united states.  If you need verification that I live in Milwaukee, WI, see http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5398 or come on IRC and verify my IRC presence with this forum account and check my IP address.

sorry for the one liner but it had to be said.

If it was worth saying, then it was worth saying with evidence.
As a one liner it's useless even as a hint to investigate more.  
A glance over mizerydearia's previous posts doesn't clarify.

What is the assumed knowledge I am missing that makes this one liner worth taking seriously?

So is he calling Bitcoin itself a ponzi scheme or bitcoinmarkets a ponzi scheme?

Eitherway, how hypocritical they are, while tpb host torrent files leading to illegal content like movies, music, os's etc.

I bet the ones that banned you are 12 y/o's thinking they are tough shit.

What else could be said about the nubs in control over there. Morons.

An article by Rick Falkvinge: http://falkvinge.net/2011/09/29/anonymous-from-b-in-joke-to-sociopolitical-philosophy/

Quote
For a while, I’d been noticing a trend in the way people who call themselves Anonymous seemed to think and act. Several days ago, this post on Pastebin summed it up quite nicely for me:

Anonymous is not a group. Many of us form groups, but Anonymous is not about groups.
Anonymous is not a hacker collective. Many of us hack, but Anonymous is not about hacking.
Anonymous does not live on the Internet. Many of us meet and communicate online, but Anonymous is not just about the Internet.

Anonymous is a movement. An idea. A meme. Over years and years, it has grown and matured: beginning like an immature child, pulling pranks and causing chaos with no rhyme or reason; then becoming a formidable activist movement, devoted to the freedom of information and anti-censorship.

...

"... devoted to the freedom of information and anti-censorship."

I think he was referring to Bitcoin Markets, or w/e torrents you had up, being the pyramid scheme and not Bitcoins.

As you said, they have left other Bitcoin related material alone.

Bitcoin Markets is an open source project similar to the closed source/proprietary http://bitcoincharts.com/ project that collects market data from all bitcoin exchanges and prepares the data for view on the web (website still in development), but also #bitcoin-markets (not to be confused with #bitcoin-market (with no s)) shows almost real-time trade data.  I don't see how that project is in any way a ponzi scheme, similarly as to bitcoin charts not being a ponzi scheme.

"I'm pretty sure the whole point of The Pirate Bay is they don't take down torrents"

That may be true, and in this case, they didn't take down my torrent.  They got around that by merely banning my account.

<mizerydea> thanks for the unban ^_^
<[WTC-SWE]> np at all
<mizerydea> Is it possible the account could be unbanned also?

<[WTC-SWE]> I think he was referring to Bitcoin Markets, or w/e torrents you had up, being the pyramid scheme and not Bitcoins.
<[WTC-SWE]> ^^^
<[WTC-SWE]> that is exactly what happened
<K`Tetch> we did a panel on bitcoins 4 weeks ago at Dragoncon
<mizerydea> mm.  Okay.  Do you evaluate 'Bitcoin Markets' as not a ponzi scheme now?
<K`Tetch> I do
<K`Tetch> very much a ponzi scheme
<[WTC-SWE]> and for the record i'm not 12 years old-...tell that to the rest of the guys and you can quote me if you wish:)
<mizerydea> K`Tetch: Is http://bitcoincharts.com/ also a ponzi scheme?
<[WTC-SWE]> Anyways as a good will i willlift the ban
<mizerydea> Thanks
<Qwizy> [WTC-SWE] must be 14!!!
<K`Tetch> http://thepiratebay.org/user/ktetch/ the 2011 torrents have the audio for the bitcoin panel
<[WTC-SWE]> mizerydea : As you can see, we don't ban other similar torrents.Anyways i lifted the ban for you.
<[WTC-SWE]> Try to log in so i know you're ok.
<mizerydea> [WTC-SWE], Yep.  I noticed and that was a cause for confusion.  However it makes more sense now.  I logged in to the account, but I see the torrent is gone also.  Can that be restored also or must I reupload it?
<[WTC-SWE]> I'm sorry to say so,but you'll have to reupload it.
<[WTC-SWE]> Give me the hash ,so i can clear it for you.
<[WTC-SWE]> That way you'll be able to reupload it.
<[WTC-SWE]> Look at your client at general..
<mizerydea> [WTC-SWE], 3d54cf85135fe0f122fec2259bfc2e13ab8bd221

Even though it was admitted that not bitcoin itself, but the torrent release for 'bitcoin markets 2011.10 sql data dump' was assumed to be a ponzi scheme (or at least that is their excuse for the drama the last couple hours), it should be known that had any of the individuals affiliated with the pirate bay in relation to banning the account and the continued kickbanning of myself, genjix and a few others in #thepiratebay.org who spoke anything of bitcoin (which as far as I know, text content is not ponzi scheme in any possible way) actually glanced at the content or the related forum thread linked in the description, they would have immediately realized that there was nothing to do with 'ponzi scheme.'

I guess it's easy to confuse sql, data or dump with "ponzi scheme"

My idea of one or more of those individuals being incompetent still stands.

Well that's nice to know that it was a misunderstanding. These things usually are and it can be hard being a mod. I guess bitcoinmarkets did look commercial at first glance, especially if you're busy.

Who on earth gives a f**k what some random TPB admin thinks???
Who at all uses the pirate bay any more??
Alternatives are just much better, and this example maybe explains why they lost the race...

It' wasn't our attention to misscredit or keep bitcoin out of TPB.There're plenty of stuff uploaded and none have been deleted nor banned(accounts).The reason for the IRC ban and lately a second,was because of massive spambots/people that kept flooding all over Efnet the last 3-5 days.We simply thought they were "trolling"
Also the torrent got flagged as spam/adverts and therefore the ban.We deal with millions of users on daily basis and misstakes happens all time.The thing is that i lifted the ban and cleared the hash.I even apologized to the guy ->> [ mizerydearia ]. He replied/quoted back with this -->>  ( My idea of one or more of those individuals being incompetent still stands.) even after i explained the situation for him.

I honestly got disappointed and pissed off after i read it,therefore my request telling him to leave the channel.Is it so damn hard for people to understand that their situation ain't unique ? and that there're millions of torrents/spammer/trolls/fakers to deal with?

The only guy that understood the whole situation and acted reasonable was ->> [ genjix ] on his second post. ( Well that's nice to know that it was a misunderstanding. These things usually are and it can be hard being a mod. I guess bitcoinmarkets did look commercial at first glance, especially if you're busy.) [ genjix ] was the second in line to join IRC and unfortunetely he got backfired from me in the heat.
Really sorry about that [ genjix ]

The where none more after that, as some loves to exaggerate on the thread mentioned above.You guys have a nice community/forum in here,but it's sad to see certain members jumping on hasty conclussions without knowing the facts.

Also when i mentioned the "permanent ban" it was because of the copypaste and altered truth.I definetely wouldn't agree on it if i knew how the situation would escalate.We're not bad guys,the opposite i should say.We try to help people 24/7  5.089.311 registered at this stage and issues are to be solved.

If i were an egoist i would never try to explain nor make an account in here to end this.I'd probably hear a lot more "laughs" or arrogant comments,but at least i took the first step(s) to end this crappy situation.How you guys procide,it's up to you.I am far to old for grudges or "internet" issues".


Take care and have a nice day/evening.


Kindly regards

this sounds reasonable. as a high-profile trolling playground like TPB sometimes extreme measures must be taken.

thanks for providing an explanation and keep up the good work in providing TPB.

btw - i'm quite sure the number of bitcoin signatures in releases will increase exponentially in the future Smiley

No, i mean, if they thought it was just spam/advertising, how did they come to the conclusion it was specificly a ponzi scheme?

Exactly. To me, it appears the whole efnet thing is just a cover for an earlier fuck-up probably generated by someone's ego being too large. Saying that him coming in the channel is like trolling is ridiculous: how else is he supposed to get it resolved? The original problem is made worse by thin stories put on top of an act of stupidity. If WTC-SWE just said "it was a screw up, I'm sorry. You're unbanned" then that would be an apology. But an apology with a lump of lies and a side helping of an appeal to guilt (oh woe be my op problems, you don't even know). It's a bunch of shit.

And I don't care what I say because I don't need to worry about being banned. I don't use that crap.

Thanks for taking the time to come here and resolve this issue! Nice to see such things being settled peacefully and not resulting in a flamewar for a change Wink

You guys have a nice community/forum in here,but it's sad to see certain members jumping on hasty conclussions without knowing the facts.

So you jump on hasty conclusions without knowing the facts and then you try to lecture us on jumping on hasty conclusions without knowing the facts?

It appears one or more people are using this historic event to claim the following misleading idea:
Quote
the pirate bay are often removing bitcoin related torrents

This is inaccurate and I am quite disappointed that I have to follow-up on this issue to point out the exaggeratedness of this claim especially without anything to back it up, a claim created out of thin air.

Just because one bitcoin-related torrent was removed which is known (because I caused a scene and documented it in relation to my torrent not being spam), does not mean all bitcoin-related torents will be removed.  In fact, if you review the information in the beginning of this thread you will have realized that there were many bitcoin torrents that existed and remained even after my bitcoin-related torrent was removed.  Again, fucking obnoxious claim is fucking obnoxious.

Just because in relation to the scene caused, one or more people that mentioned bitcoin were banned from #thepiratebay.org does not mean all people that mention bitcoin will be banned from #thepiratebay.org.  Again, FUUUCKING obnoxious claim.

I see some people that recurringly exaggerate or make partially inaccurate statements to misleadingly spread awareness of situations or entities/organizations/people and several other individuals jumping on the same bandwagon without recognizing the truth or accuracy of such claims.  Wtfever though.  To each their own reputation.
