May I know , what does it means entertaining  ?

Who have intelligence ?
Who able to make scam in many way ?
Who are spammer ?

OP pertains for those who can flip flap their ears while making a hardly cotton candies in the carnival. And also for those who can spit shits out of their nose while spamming in a very intelligent way which can also a way to scamming in a rightful way.

What a sad thing that you have a name of "detector" but can't even detect any compliance regarding the word entertainment entertaining here on bitcointalk.

Hey, you said most entertaining right? And not someone who is worth listening too? Cheesy Nah, I appreciate some of the users on this list that shake the forum up from the normal types of users.

English humour is so misunderstood. I always though I was a serious poster.

I even sold the tinfoil hat when the price of aluminium was higher.
Yep, I work with a lot of nationalities, and they always struggle to understand the British sense of humour.

I think you should be have organized your poll list by these ranking.   Smiley

https://bpip.org/report.aspx?r=mostrecognized
I don't think that's 100% relevant, because a lot of the top-ranked members aren't necessarily the most entertaining.  Maybe my definition of the word is different than others, but as I've said there is a big difference between members who make informative posts and those who make entertaining ones.  When I think of entertainment, I think of something evoking emotion or some sort of mental response--laughter, anger, disbelief, and the like.  That's why TMAN's posts are entertaining, because he's a good writer and makes me chuckle.  That's why the insane conspiracy theorists are entertaining.  

I very much like posts made by some of the top members on Vod's site, but I just wouldn't go so far as to say they "entertain" me.  Maybe I'm seeing things too black-and-white, I don't know.

Edit:  Looks like Bruno is in the lead, and I think he's worthy of it.  Most of his posts have a manic-insane quality that keeps me reading.

There are some pretty entertaining posters missing on that link. For me, it has to be the two biggest permabears ever: proudhon and kwukduck. Some theorize that they are the same person but I don't believe it, their posting style is distinct enough, unless he is trying to fool the public into being two separate people.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=9636
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=654

There was even a song made about proudhon:

I also enjoyed r0ach and anonymints discussions about why gold sucks and bitcoin doesn't and vice versa.

May I know , what does it means entertaining  ?

Who have intelligence ?
Who able to make scam in many way ?

Entertaining providing amusement or enjoyment.



I held nominations in a pseudo scientific manner. Then I copy and pasted the names into the poll using a disorganized manner, still making spelling mistakes, including a couple of ineligibles and even listing a couple of people twice.

All to see who will get the coveted title of "most entertaining person on bitcointalk". I have left ample room for controversy, proof of my incompetence in making the poll, conspiracy, accusations and finger pointing.

But I am confident that:

1) It will be entertaining for most people. (As per internet dictionary definition - it is on the internet - I've supplied a picture of it - so it is true and correct)
2) The person chosen by the poll will be entertaining.
3) Some big egos will get hurt.
4) People will talk about it for some time.
5) Some people will complain for their own entertainment.
6) Some people will not be entertained.
7) Some people will still be confused
Cool Some people will complain that they didn't get to vote after the poll closes.

You didn't nominate them when the nominations were held.

Banned and MIA users are ineligible - only current users are eligible - even though some inactive users accidentally managed to get on the list.

We are surrounded by legends on this forum. Phenomenal successes and catastrophic failures. Then there are the scams. This forum is a digital museum.

Yep, I work with a lot of nationalities, and they always struggle to understand the British sense of humour.

It's not just British sense of humour. It's any kind of  humour for non-native speakers, no matter the nationality of the humour. Double meaning, sarcasm and humour are difficult to understand even if you are proficient (and a non-native speaker).

I sometimes get it and sometimes not. Other times it takes me a while.

I think this poll is just going to be a "crazy off" where the most crazy members come up on top. We all know how entertaining DannyHamiltons posts can be from a technical stand point, but he has no chance of winning when there's several members who swear down the earth is flat, and the planet is made out of cheese.

British humour is certainly something different to most nationalities. We can be incredibly dry. Some nationalities don't seem to get our "banter" either.

British humour is different, someone who understands the language and watches a lot of TV shows/Movies will get it. Being a non-native speaker, I find British humour quite funny. People don't really use that humour here, but then again its a rare thing for people to even use normal humour.


This thread is supposed to be with full of jokes, we only have people telling who they voted. Suckers. You didn't even vote for me.  Angry

Shit, a good 90% of my posts I try to add humor and I fail about 99% of that! And a good 1% of the time They get offended at my joke! Cheesy

I think this poll is just going to be a "crazy off" where the most crazy members come up on top. We all know how entertaining DannyHamiltons posts can be from a technical stand point, but he has no chance of winning when there's several members who swear down the earth is flat, and the planet is made out of cheese.

It's not just British sense of humour. It's any kind of  humour for non-native speakers, no matter the nationality of the humour. Double meaning, sarcasm and humour are difficult to understand even if you are proficient (and a non-native speaker).

I sometimes get it and sometimes not. Other times it takes me a while.
British humour is certainly something different to most nationalities. We can be incredibly dry. Some nationalities don't seem to get our "banter" either.

It has a lot to do with demographics - education, profession, occupation, race, ethnicity, gender, age, political leanings, income level, sex, sexual preference and marital status all influence humor.

It is not surprising that the type of humor on bitcointalk that is popular  is quite bold type humor.

Not being on the list doesn't make someone "not entertaining" but more of a niche entertainment. There are a few people that could have easily made it on the list that were not nominated. It just happened that their fans did not see the nomination thread or their names failed to be mentioned.  The likes of "theyoungmillionaire" are clearly entertaining. Like with any competition - not everyone that would be eligible (had they been nominated)  has been entered. But rather than having the entire list of members on bitcointalk to choose from a nomination process was held. Apart from a couple of surprises (members I hadn't heard of)  I knew which members were going to be in the lead.

Out of the 40 names on the list there are going to be some clear winners that have entertainment appeal to the most users.

But as the voting shows - there are some clear favorites that are competing for the crown.

The list of legends is here and you are on it at number 203:

Just under casascius so you are in esteemed company.

We are surrounded by legends on this forum. Phenomenal successes and catastrophic failures. Then there are the scams. This forum is a digital museum.

Well I have not known much about most of the nominees so its really hard to decide. However, I feel Digaran is fine by me. Maybe I will pay closer attention  in case of subsequent polls.
