Suchmoon logic which is on DT list
I trust 0gNasty unlike some others on the DT list. 0gNasy had a good trade reputation which is what the DT was meant for. I would trust him with $$ unlike MANY many of the DT list users that are on that list with ZERO trade rep. Fuck you if you don't like that answer.

OgNasty's exclusion doesn't prevent him from trading. It excludes his ratings from the default score and moves them down on on person's trust page, which is appropriate seeing how worthless many of his ratings are due to his extremely fragile ego.

Suchmoon logic has him Rating a TRUSTED member for a "Fragile Ego"   how is he on DT list?HuhHuhHuhHuhHuh

Why is the DT list made up of almost NO ONE who has traded a single $ on BCT?
The DT was implemented for trade reasons right?
What is this nonsense? Most of the new DT1 members (at least from the collectibles section) have traded goods worth very large amounts of BTC. You may be talking about DT members from local sections; but that was the goal if I understood my master correctly.

Awarding merits for political reasons, this is totally partiality while judging peoples here.
The evidence was pretty clear:
You need 10 earned merits to vote right?

I can provide you with that to be eligible for voting. Not many but some of the supportive and abused, Jr.member and newbies can vote because of my help which is an honour for me.
Giving merit to a political post that's worth reading is okay, but (as a merit source) giving merit for voting rights is abuse.

Trust in fact is your  coordinate  system (CS) in n-dimensional space of morality&priorities (M&P). Like any other CS it is  relative and depends on both point of origin (PO) and axes-of-reference (AoR) as those to whom you trust. Theymos tries to find the universal CS but, IMO,  that's impossible ( unless all ppl are equal) and therefore  everyone has to  pick PO&AoR  that best suites his/her M&P.

Yet more ambiguous rules that can be selectively enforced... this is looking less and less like a hands off decentralized system, and more and more like a system designed to give the appearance of decentralization.

I certainly wouldn't say it's entirely hands off, because of the subjective contingencies lying within the rules as you have pointed out. To me, it certainly seems more decentralized than the old system, but I agree there is progress to be made.

TEC, do you believe the system would be better without the option for these judgement calls from staff (Or DT)? Genuinely curious to hear your thoughts, and anyone else on this. It's difficult to delegate responsibility in a decentralized manner without ruining whatever that responsibility is there to maintain.

Somebody might explain to me why old members who have clearly participated a lot in the forum in the past are not allowed to have any voting rights if they didn't earn 10 merits ?

I mean i can show a lot of high ranked account who are activ on that forum and posting many updates about crypto but don't receive merit.

Why do they don't own a vote ?

Are they not considered as part of the community ?


Quote
it's a rant by a recently-uncovered scammer.  I'm not about to reward that shit with merits
But you are meriting a guy with a new account who is whoring for merit and received 80 merits for a short video made in 10 minutes which is  in your political few right?

I mean its so obvious that this account is not his first one as he clearly knows where and how to receive merits and you look his threads.
2 more videos of that low quality and he will be a DT1

DT1 in just a month thanks to short low quality videos which represents the political view of the abusers.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5105303.0


Didn't saw theymos reacting on that bullshit like the known merit cicle of Lauda and the rest......

Like i posted before .Imbalance and one sided decissions of theymos which result is that big part of the community stopped trusting anyone of you.

Incorrect as usual - - that is if you want merit to become a real meritocracy

Motive even if stated is irrelevant -- only the posts actual content and its value should be analysed and then awarded merit based upon its contribution in relation to reaching the optimal solution.

You are suggesting an adhominem fallacy.

If we start using motives for removing merits let us start analysing bpips fans and receivers, trust lists and observable allegiances on this board. Any removal of merit without first providing a strong case the post itself does not warrant that merit is a political move and tampering.

Since merits are now trust in effect then we need to bring forth some criteria that ensures merit is given to valuable posts only. Why should persons proliferating provably incorrect / valueless information or even fighting against the formation of a fairer, transparent and more equal system for all even be considered trustworthy it the first place? makes no logical sense.

It seems like theymos doesn’t like merit being given for political purposes. I can’t really disagree with this, but realistically this happened prior to the new DT system was put in place.

The above begs the question if it is acceptable to *not* give merit for political purposes.

I am on the fence if this is currently happening, but is a question to discuss.

I can think of a reason: the account farmers from before the Merit system shouldn't be able to use those accounts for voting power.

2 more videos of that low quality and he will be a DT1
Receiving Merit alone doesn't put him on DT1, it gives some voting power at best.
Last Saturday, nobody had included Crypto-DesignService, and he didn't create a custom Trust list either.

It's difficult to delegate responsibility in a decentralized manner without ruining whatever that responsibility is there to maintain.

At the end of the day the forum is Theymos's personal property, even if he and the community largely see it as something he is entrusted with on behalf of the community. The question is not if they will be able to interfere, ofc they will be able. I don't think they will need or want to for the vast majority of instances.

We already uphold certain standards for what is not acceptable to rate people for without staff intervention. Any disputes or judgement calls would be handled by community analysis and judgement in public as it always has been. This can be done with ratings, trust lists, and general ostracism.

The problem is no one except Theymos will ever be able to get such a standard of evidence of theft, violation of contractual agreement, or violation of applicable laws in to effect, because it goes against the interest of those already in control of the system. He doesn't need to personally nit pick every case, or really any, but by setting a comparatively very objective standard for leaving a negative rating the VAST majority of conflict is simply avoided.

There will be no hindrance of stopping scammers, but in fact it will be easier to spot them as they don't blend in in a sea of red. Also people will feel more comfortable contributing to a community where they don't have to worry about everything being taken away over some petty squabble at any instant.

You should have made the list before merit had a political function. Merit sources were asking for merit worthy posts in meta for months.

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

How highly-ranked?  Who are you talking about?  Feel free to post the list in LoyceV's thread on undermerited posts and I'll be happy to take a look at it.

But you are meriting a guy with a new account who is whoring for merit and received 80 merits for a short video made in 10 minutes which is  in your political few right?
That video was funny, IMO and deserved every merit it got.  Get a sense of humor.

Hmm.. I've sold/bought things from Lauda over the last two years. Physical goods for BTC. Never used any escrow from either side so you are wrong.

EDIT; Are you just trolling or are you actually unable to check who is on DT? Most people there have made trades for tens of thousands of $ in BTC.

You are a douchebag. I Acknowledge your trade history as  trustworhty trader but still are a douchebag. Lauda is not trustworthy. I would trust you with $$ I would not trust LAUDA

EDIT; Most people on current DT have substantial trade history of physical goods over long periods of time. Others are on DT for being trustworthy in a sense where their judgement is always on point and their contributions to this forum goes above and beyond.

I wasn't even implying that your failed quotation was the shitty post. Your post that I initially replied to was the shit post that adds nothing to the discussion (where you spew out lies with nothing to back it up with).
