For the record, whether tibbs was immature, over zealous, or whatever else, it seems to me like he's not the kind of 'scammer' that deserves a "scammer" tag. Probably just another instance of "if it smells like smoke....DROWN IT".
I agree with you. While I don't agree with his business decisions, I don't know much about the guy. My only sure fact was that associating a labeled scammer with the main 3 domains lent itself to a terrible public image, regardless of surrounding facts. That needed to change; why it took so much effort and had so much resistance is beyond me, but that's over now.
I felt that you didn't need to go on such an attack on terrytibbs and on me. Some of the stuff you said where uncalled for. Even though what you ultimately fought for was right (the fact that users would be worried that the person hosting litecoin.org has a scammer label), the way you went about it was pretty poor. Instead of going about it nicely, you made claims that were blatantly false and instilled a lot of hostility towards you and muddied your argument:
"everyone can make their own decision on whether or not they like to download binaries hosted by a proven scam artist"
- the binaries are not hosted on litecoin.org
- and terrytibbs is not a "proven scam artist." most people will agree that to be a scam artist, you need have intent to scam people. the terrytibbs "scam" is more like he sold a used car that turned out to be a lemon (which he didn't know about) and he refused to accept returns. so buyers were stuck with the lemon and asked the mods here to label him as a scammer.
"litecoin domains run high risk of having links to malicious binaries"
- the fact that terrytibbs is labeled as a scammer for his past deals does not make it a "high risk" that he will change the litecoin website to link to malicious binaries.
And these personal attacks don't help:
"For personal reasons Coblee (litecoin dev) thinks he has better moral judgement than this entire community"
"Learn reading comprehension"
"shows a direct and complete disregard for the security of your users"
"Perhaps you just need a scapegoat so when you scam your entire user base"
Although I don't agree that having terrytibbs host the website is a high security risk, I do concede that it does not shine a good light on Litecoin when terrytibbs has a scammer label, whether valid or not. And people (like yourself) will immediately jump to the wrong conclusion when they see the scammer label. And I don't feel like dealing with threads like these in the future.
Well, it's behind us now. Please lock this thread.
