Meanwhile ... on the subject of the micro txn spam ...
Hmm I guess it must be someone who visits this forum.
Up to now, I've received just over 1,000 micro txn's and all to the address I list in my sig (none to any other address)
Does seem a rather odd way to do it.
If anyone wants addresses they can just look in the block-chain
For me, litecoind is working fine - no problems so far.
Apparently BTC-e is having trouble with it (according to comments in the chat box)
Though, with BTC-e they will just keep all the micro-txn's they get since they already keep any amount they receive below 0.0001 LTC
As I've said in the other thread, I don't really see an issue with it since Litecoin should be able to handle it.
However, is anyone considering actually posting in here a fee/txn limit like gmaxwell suggested (except his are way too high)
and I'm wondering if we'd need to pretty much shutdown everyone and restart to make sure there are no fork issues for people accepting or not accepting the txn's?
Certainly if the fee was implemented I'd suggest a much lower one - maybe like 0.001 for txn's under 1 LTC (with a definite review of those 2 numbers in a month if the value of LTC increases)
Pretty suspicious that gmaxwell posts that just before it happened.
Either he knew about it indirectly from the culprits or is involved in it.
