Seeing as I am somewhat of a newbie to alt coins I feel the need to seek adive for this.

Are there any specific alt coins I should stay away from completely?

What do you mean by "bad designed threads"? Bad designed websites or something else?
+1 for the premined ones tho.

Ha, was gonna say this. You should avoid most of them to be honest, but maybe there's a few you could deal with. I'd just do your own research really as people will just recommend you check out the coin they want to pimp out.

I suggest avoiding alt-coins altogether. Until you fully understand the bitcoin protocol you will not be in a position to compare coins. Once you do understand, you won't want most alts. Mostly.

avoid any cloned alt coins as it is pretty stupid that they think they can be successful.

I came here to this forum to get a NEM stake. Then, I have also been reading of other coins and buying some of them.

What I don't understand is why some Bitcoin supporters feel only Bitcoin is good. This makes no sense to me. How did you get into Bitcoin if you are so close minded. It is a paradox, right?

It's amazing to me. You were open minded, forward thinking, and joined a revolution. Then, this way of thinking just disappeared? No. It did not. I don't believe it, so this just brings me to two conclusions. You are lying. Or, you are so scared of Bitcoin failing that you are delusional.

It's impossible for this many people to just change from what they were, into what they were against in the first place. Maybe a few. But I have found that the more coins that are under your user name, the more suspect you are. Not all, but a see a trend here that's for sure.

So you are all that freaked out that these new coins will steal Bitcoins thunder!! L-O-L

So, let me give you some perspective from a new person. You look extremely transparent, and I think other new people see it too. This hurts Bitcoin!! It makes me think, and I'm sure others too, that you know some weakness of Bitcoin that I have yet to notice.

When you buy and altcoin, don't you use Bitcoin to do it. I heard some one say it is the reserve. I heard someone say that it is the king of coins. You hold Bitcoin. It is THE coin of coins. So what are you so scared of?

OK, yes, many of these coins are not going anywhere. But people can still make money some of them. Oh, I know, thinking like this HURTS the movement. Give me a break, the last thing you people care about at this point is the movement. That's beyond obvious. If I hear one more person say that Dogecoin is going to scare people away from Bitcoin I'm going to puke.
Come on man. REALLY? If Bitcoin was that weak none of us would be here and you all KNOW IT!

Also, there are going to be other coins that are going to rise to general public awareness with Bitcoin. That's just a fact. It will not only be one. It never is one. But we have a Bitcoin ATM popping up in Austin and Seattle now. I see something on Bitcoin in the mainstream media all the time now. It's a success!!

When I see Bitcoin in the media now, I always read the comments. 9 out of 10 of them sound just like you sound. They are negative and sound close minded. They have their fingers in their ears and scream NO, WHAT A JOKE, YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR MONEY. etc. They are talking about Bitcoin, saying Fiat is the only way. YOU are talking about Alts, saying Bitcoin is the only way.

Am I going to become just like you if NEM or one of the other Alts I bought happens to go big? If I do please, you heard it here first, I want you new people with one coin under your user name to come throw tomatoes. Thanks!!
