With the current market, to use anything other than BTC would be about as pathetic as using Pesos or Yen.
The thought of paying millions of any bottom-end crypto-currency is just rediculous when when tens (or worst case scenario, hundreds) of BTCs could be used in their place.
Everyone wants to be an early adopter and continues to PRAY for a BTC-like 'Silk Road' summer 2011 'bubble'.......GIVE IT UP.
A large amount of people do use pesos or yen. I believe your hatred for alt currencies is comparable to hating the smaller currencies of the world.
