Could they be all the same person or a ring of people using IP changing capabilities also ?!

There do seem to be more trolls than makes any sense to me.  People who spend their time reading a message board of a project they dont support so actively they are often the first responses?  Odd

Exactly. And their comments are longer than ever.

It's amazing, isn't it?  But such is life on the internet.

Is there a way to know that?

You mean you don't find that odd? Another thing that I notice is the large amount of hardworking trolls with a short story in the forum.

LOL.  It says something about this forum that I knew you were talking about posts like mine and not the OP of that thread.  Because of course a tinfoil hat thread about sinister forces marshaling to drive down prices is a quality contribution, whereas any post that hints at the facts in front of your face being a natural (and predictable) consequence of weaknesses in the project has to be trolling. 

Hilarious.  I'll report to my masters (a shadowy cabal of bankers and global power brokers) that you're onto us and Operation Post On A Web Forum will have to be aborted.  Stand by for phase two:  Operation Send Out Some Tweets.

It just strikes me the amount of energy you invest in something you consider a failure.

not to mention the fact that he views an up and down move in a fledgling currency in a short 6 mo of a 3 yr lifespan an indicator of failure.  LOL!

I personally doubt it.  Looks to me like a small number of people and their sock puppets with a long-ish term goal of engineering a short-squeeze and some late-to-the-party copy-cats.  This kind of thing is at least as old as the dot-com bubble days.

Did you read my post in that thread?  I didn't say anything even close to that.  What I said was that the price has and will continue to drop because Bitcoin has not achieved any objective value beyond speculation, and the speculators' ability and willingness to throw money at it is being overwhelmed by the number of coins being mined and the large supply currently held only for the increasingly unlikely hope of long term gains.  

I know it's easier to argue against what you wish people were saying than what they actually are, but it's lazy.  It's also a lot closer to trolling than anything I've posted.

Uh, I'm guessing the same as yours:  to read and post on a web forum.  Well, not quite the same as yours, because I'm not starting tinfoil hat threads.

I still wonder what your motivation is.

It looks to me like something is up. About a week ago we started getting lots of new accounts that bash bitcoin. We have seen this before. I don't understand someones motivation to hear about bitcoin then set up an account to repeatedly say how much they hate it. Unless their greedy motivation is to drive down price while they still can. Greed is easy to understand.
