another aspect of what i just said is that if the central banks ever got the sense that Bitcoin was unstoppable, heaven knows what they'd do to actually get a foot in the game.
I do indeed hope you are right. I've got a big bet on that happening eventually and working out in my favor. But I consider it a long-shot.
which is precisely why i feel they are doing everything they can to try and prevent that from happening such as forum trolling despite what some of you believe.
My sense is that about half the people in these forums are to some extent, trolls (including myself), but I can detect very little evidence that there is any coordination here.
To follow-up on your next post, I doubt that 'they' are under the illusion that they could 'kill' Bitcoin dead or even drive the price to to a significantly low level (the designers were to clever for that.) A good policy would actually be to keep it cranking along on life support if need be even, monitor and catalog the participants, and generally study it for weaknesses and exploits. That may (or may not) be the phase we are in now. I'm undecided.
