So no one cares why they are doing this? They are just trolls so fuckem? Has anyone considered this is a symptom of other issues?
Pretty much no one cares about this except them, and I'd be willing to wager that all of those accounts are controlled by only a handful of actual people.  I smell extreme stinky sockpuppeteering in the breeze.  

Oh, wait.  There must be hundreds of other members who care deeply about the anti-DT agenda but who are too afraid of speaking up, lest they get tagged for voicing their contrarian opinions.  

The community is deciding on who gets into DT; everyone on that list plus a few others don't like "the community".  This has turned into an insane power-grab attempt by a bunch of extremely loud trolls, saying the same thing over and over.  If you don't like it, go with the even more centralized option of whining to Theymos to fix it.  

The hypocrisy is strong with this proven sock puppet racist trolling sig spammer the pharmacist aka Huge Black Woman.

Trolls? sock puppetting? you say these are negative things....... not that either of those can be proven of these persons you accuse and yet its proven of you mr DT and merit source. FACT

Also to JJG

Your argument seems completely foolish. Lauda is a proven liar, and trust abuser. The fact that you are attempting to cast those that want this recognised and the appropriate action taken in a negative light and suggest blacklisting them is ludicrous and actually makes you look untrustworthy. Best to remove proven liars once you are in full knowledge of their prior actions else of course it will reflect poorly upon your judgement and can only speculate that as persons spot this kind of behaviour you will get more exclusions. According to suchmoon those supporting "possible" scams can be given red trust so I would expect fans of his may reason those knowingly supporting proven liars and trust abusers on DT .... well you can see where that is going.

I don't feel that pointing out wrong doing and insisting those in positions of trust here recognise this and meet there responsibility to remove such wrong doers else they will therefore be viewed as non useful in such a position can be classed as blackmail. That is the unsound and messed up logic I have heard voiced here before by trust abusers.

Don't support proven liars into positions of trust then expect to be viewed as trustworthy.

Oppps I see to a proven sock puppet trolling sig spammer Sad some may consider that to be untrustworthy to support such a person on DT too . I can't really say.

I doubt that I need to get into the weeds with you about all of your various points, because I consider some of those points to be matters way out of my control... and maybe directed at The Pharmacist rather than me.   

Part of my suggestion in my recent post(s) with the blacklisting suggestion issue comes from consideration that behavior of some members might cross such threshold based on a series of conduct, and certainly, I am not investigating into the matter and I would not have enough information to make a specific recommendation on any particular case.  Also, use of IP addresses to trace the use of sock puppet accounts could be something that admin would have too that could make a difference in some cases... 

You, cryptohunter, seem to suggest that the crusade against Lauda is righteous and just and carried out by innocent truth seekers (and corruption busters), but I just have so much difficulties with your whole premise when the thread in which they are propagandizing is so wild with the deletion of posts, that no sane person attempting to seek knowledge on the topic is able to follow it or even participate in it.  

Personally, I find such threads, and even such assertions of fair and just to be unwarranted, when participation is being deleted, so the thread just becomes a BIG ASS circle jerk propaganda piece no longer worthy of categorization of fair and just (presuming that it ever was).

I'm glad you recognise this. I would personally see the end of all self moderated threads and local rules bullshit. People can post relevant on topic facts or opinions they substantiate with corroborating events etc or just refrain from posting. This is how the entire board should function for max efficiency.

There is no doubt that the goal is righteous. The method is for others to debate but i see it as no different as the DT's methods and they seem to shy away from anything unmoderated and now insist they can introduce echo chambers in meta via their "local rules".  So why can others not do as they like without that having negative implications.

For me personally I see it more as a "if you can do it....so can we" decision. I don't feel any information could come to light that would refute successfully what has been demonstrated with observable events/facts.

If you look i see a few posts there by those that are not pro "the movement".

Lauda does some good, I have praised it in the past however using red trust to bully or silence truth needs to be fixed or they need to be removed. There is no other sensible solution. This is not blackmail this is simply undo your wrong deeds or people will get upset at unfair treatment and expecting them to take it lying down is ........ unrealistic and unfair.

I think that it is fair for me to distinguish what I am saying here from what you seem to be saying. 

First, I am not against self-moderated threads, but it seems problematic when a large number of posts that are topical are deleted which causes difficulties following meaningful back and forth.  In the end, those judgements are with the creator of the thread, but there could be situations in which self-moderation crosses into a kind of abusive and seemingly purposely misleading territory.  I am NOT going to bother myself with specific attempts to figure out whether the "remove Lauda from DT" thread crosses into such territory because once my 6 posts therein were deleted, I decided to stop participating or looking at such thread because my time to construct the posts had been wasted when OP decided to delete my 6 posts, which was a step too far from me, so  thereafter, I don't give any shits about what I perceive to be phony boloney discussion points that they want to engage in what I believe to be a circle jerk (based on what I perceived to have been the deletion of my reasonable attempts at contribution to what I had thought to be the thread topic).

Second, on an objective level there are many reasons that self-moderation is likely more efficient then allowing a free range of ideas.  There are posts that purposefully attempt to derail to topic or promote some non-topic issues (aka trolling and shilling) and other conduct that might go over the line in either breaking forum rules or societal rules or norms (such as threats, safety, morally distasteful, and doxing and things like that).  Accordingly, some of those posts just need to be deleted because allowing them is less efficient than deleting them.

Third, I understand that there can be some debate about whether the services of the forum are a public utility or whether there is complete owner discretion.  I think that current state of the world gives a decently large amount of discretion to owners to do pretty much whatever they like.  I understand that theymos does attempt to allow deviance from his personal preferences (in regards to posts, threads, banning/suspensions, assignment of merit sources and moderators/staff), yet I think that he continues to hold a decent amount of discretion to change matters however he wants for almost any reason that he wants or no reason at all.  So in that regard, sometimes, there might be some allowance of topics, posts, member status and contradictions that are not easily explained, and really there is not a duty for theymos to necessarily explain, even though he might chose to provide some explanations from time to time.

I think the trust system does way more harm to the community than good, it should be removed IMO. The amount of people I get direct messaging me on Twitter complaining how they stopped using this forum because of issues around trust is noticeable, or ranting about Lauda. I don't think these people are necessarily scammers either.

Better to just remove it. I'm sure the overall happiness of the community would go way up. Let people figure out for themselves if someone or a business is trustworthy, as they do on the rest of the internet. It's a noble idea but it just builds resentment among members which might actually lead to more shady and dubious behavior. Mobs going around bullying members with trust scores is shady activity. Feels like more people complain about getting their trust fucked with and characters like Lauda than they do about scams here.

Trust scores are mostly meaningless, it's closer to a popularity contest than a true measure of someone's trustworthiness. Just by using this site, all of you are implicitly trusting me, but that isn't reflected at all in my trust score, in fact I probably seem less trustworthy on first observation than some actual shady people on here. There's so much angst with the whole system, maybe there's a way to make it work better, and tweaking it could eventually lead to that, but for now it just looks like something that's dividing the community.

Its almost like we could use an objective standard of evidence of theft, violation of contractual agreement, or violation of applicable laws. I tried to make this argument years ago but I am just a troll and should be ignored and marginalized forever for saying so.

I can't believe I hadn't left you positive trust before this.  My sincere apologies on this oversight that has now been corrected.  I thought it was awful the way certain groups were trying to bully you into giving up the coveted domain you control, and applaud how you stood your ground.

I also echo your thoughts, specifically pertaining to Lauda.  I think this community needs to be more respectful of new members, and less threatened that some brand new account is going to scam the community out of all our funds.  Far more often it is "trusted" escrow agents leading new members into bad projects with a false sense of security that are to blame for community losses.  While I think scrapping DT might be a bit of an over-reaction, I can't think of a better way without appearing to play favorites.  Possibly remove all negative trust completely until these users see they aren't saving the world with their attack against newbies and are instead discouraging community growth.

Be careful now. You don’t want your account tagged as bought or ‘changed hands’. Opinions that go against the cults are generally viewed with suspicion, and it wouldn’t be long before you’re labeled a troll. I can imagine them already trawling through your post history looking for dirt.

I don’t think DT is a bad thing, however, it comes with some responsibility. I am certain that when Lauda was booted off DT for a few weeks, things were quieter on here and scams were still busted. Lauda and some members of her cult are the problem here not DT. And the sooner they’re out the better.


Update: Bazinga442 has excluded me anyway, so he just copy/pasts a list he doesn't even agree with.
Yes, I copied and pasted the list. I’ve never had a trust list before now and I visit my trust page only when I want to leave retaliatory feedback. I don’t need a trust list to tell me who I should trust or not.

The trust system does not do much in preventing scams, but it does lead to a lot of infighting.

Trust scores are mostly meaningless, it's closer to a popularity contest than a true measure of someone's trustworthiness.
That's where I'm at least a little uncertain.
It's true that most trust ratings are meaningless, but established traders who've done a number of trades in a trustworthy manner seem to be easily identified by substantial trust scores.
If that really justifies all the hassle with the trust system, is another question.


But the trust system is very good at one thing:
warning about accounts that might superficially seem trustworthy because of their long existence and e.g. "Legendary" status which either fall into the hands of account buyers or ruin their reputation by doing something fishy.

So, its really a glass half full half empty situation.
One real function of the trust system and a lot of bile, bickering and bitching.

Someone had to say it : I can't help think that if these exact same words came from someone else on the forums, there'd be a radically inverse response. And I'm not even exaggerating. It really shows how much people here are severely affected by status and prejudice.

I would agree that both the old and current trust system create more drama and issues rather than solve problems. But I don't know about removing the system as a whole. In the end (for me at least.), Trust remains just as a simple indicator of a person's past behaviour, and I almost always check the feedback be it positive or negative before I trade with someone.

I dealt with people who have negative trust before, and also refused to deal with people who had green one. I've already learned my lesson several times that there is no such thing as absolute trust, because being "trusted" is not generally something that can stay forever. People change. So if anything, people just need to start understanding that the trust system is just an indicator, and you need to use your own judgement when dealing with people.

Instead of teaching new users to blindly trust ratings that could be on a hacked account, or that scam busters will always protect them, perhaps we should be teaching them to use the numbers as a quick reference and to do due diligence before trading. The bitching and bickering tends to happen when you take years of work some one did to build a reputation in an extremely hostile environment full of con artists and scams, and turn it in to a toy for children with modest amounts of authority to lord over you with fake internet points. It is like taking a mans prosthetic leg off of him and beating him with it. It is an insult by its mere existence as the status quo.

The same applies for outside the forums, so not very forum/community-specific issue.

People change. So if anything, people just need to start understanding that the trust system is just an indicator, and you need to use your own judgement when dealing with people.

I guess that people generally understand "trust system" to be quite a strong indicator, when coming out of nowhere to deal with total randomers. See a red score, and you'll just move elsewhere. I think trying to improve or change the way people understand what is the intention of having trust system is a too big battle... People naturally weigh a lot on such things. Pretty complicated stuff.

Someone would need to make a proper analysis of the effects/consequences of having had the trust system here. For sure, it has increased drama and wasted loads of time, in addition to increasing bad blood around the active community of BCT. I think it largely boils down to having communication problems, misunderstandings and so on. People have different views (but still probably same goals) and (almost always) too little information to form a proper model of what someone else is meaning/arguing/thinking for real when they say something. Especially over the internet emotions play a large role, too. And there are no real consequences, so no real incentives to do everything as well as possible. People naturally form exaggerated views of others (for good and for bad), as all they see of someone else is text. These are somewhat studied subjects.
And of course accounts change hands, people change, trust system gets gamed, DT gets gamed, general misuse of trust system happens, people have different intentions when they rate someone from how the reader of the rating reads/understands it, etc.

So do the good stuff of this system outweigh downsides? It would be interesting to see an analysis about this, with some semi-objective measurements and argumentation and so on.

Btw, I think it's also worth noting that most of the users of these forums do not know or care at all about the trust system.

Actually, shouldn't possible malware links be reported to mods for deletion?

Hence why I tagged them and reported the post for deletion. Good thing I didn’t wait until they successfully scammed and a post was made in the scam accusation section.  Roll Eyes

I think the trust system does way more harm to the community than good, it should be removed IMO.

The trust system does more good than harm in terms of detecting scammers, look at the market place specially the digital goods, there are tons of confirmed scammers, members have a lead on them by seeing their trust score, there is a good part of harm indeed, but it's NOT bad enough to take over the good part.

The amount of people I get direct messaging me on Twitter complaining how they stopped using this forum because of issues around trust is noticeable, or ranting about Lauda. I don't think these people are necessarily scammers either.

most of those people are very likely the scammers who don't like to be tagged for obvious reasons.

Quote
Better to just remove it. I'm sure the overall happiness of the community would go way up. Let people figure out for themselves if someone or a business is trustworthy, as they do on the rest of the internet.

almost everywhere on the internet where there is any type of trading, there is a trust system , they call it review and feedback, some different terms and some technical differences do exist here , but overall it's all the same concept, the only advantage / disadvantage the forum has over most other places - is that they give much more weight to DT feedback than everybody else, it's a great feature to prevent trust farming , but when used in the wrong manner, it creates the mess we have now.


Quote
Feels like more people complain about getting their trust fucked with and characters like Lauda than they do about scams here.

this is simply because the trust system is being misused sometimes, some members base their feedback on personal b.s or self-interest. this can be solved by enforcing some rules on DT members to maintain the trust system and keep it on track ,whereby only scammers should be tagged.

it makes sense that the majority of complains come from non scammers, because scammers don't really complain, they just move on and create a new account, this again all comes down to how do some DT members use the trust system terribly.

Quote
Trust scores are mostly meaningless, it's closer to a popularity contest than a true measure of someone's trustworthiness. Just by using this site, all of you are implicitly trusting me, but that isn't reflected at all in my trust score

Pierre Omidyar Founder of ebay probably has 0 positive feedback or no account at all on ebay, this does not mean people don't trust him, he chooses not to sell/buy stuff on ebay, the same choice you made by not really participating in the forum. if  someone neg tag you then your theory is valid, other wise it really doesn't make sense.

Quote
maybe there's a way to make it work better, and tweaking it could eventually lead to that, but for now it just looks like something that's dividing the community.

exactly, tweaking is important, in fact simple tweaks will do the trick, a single rule that states "any DT member who tag anyone for non-scam related subject and without a proper evidence will be unlisted from DT" -This will stop 90% of complains, the scoring will be more accurate.


i understand your concern about wanting to make everybody happy on the forum, but i rather be sad than scammed, i really think theymos should postpone the "hands-off" approach and involve a bit more in the DT, i am pretty sure there are many things he doesn't like about the trust system, and for a while he is being saying this but leaving it all up to DT members who never follow what theymos want the trust system to be and look like, therefore i think it's about time he get's a bit bossy and stand up for the wrong doings and put a clear guideline on how should DT members use the trust system.

there are many other things that can be done, but totally removing / disabling the trust system is the worst thing ever, i am pretty sure scammers are getting a lot of relief reading such a suggestion from someone like you.

I responded to OG's "question".

It should be reported to moderator if user is spreading malware, but moderators won't ban account every time and sometimes thread will remain there. So, it is best to tag account, report them to moderator and post warning for guests who can't see -ve


Hence why I tagged them and reported the post for deletion. Good thing I didn’t wait until they successfully scammed and a post was made in the scam accusation section.  Roll Eyes
If I am looking correctly, this is first account OG has tagged for spreading malware since 2011  Cheesy

Go ahead, brag around, first time is something to remember  Cheesy

Edit: https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/541b91f5074afb04d6749f10bb860d5a9035d73a22534cb73fe4f50b140b9c72/detection here you go OG, for better reference and if you want to report them to moderator. This is your big case fella.

I don’t spend my time looking for people to tag... However, it seemed a good opportunity to display how useless the current tagging efforts are, that they literally don’t even tag actual scam threats because they’re too busy trying to keep newbies off the forum. Don’t let that stop you from trying to find a way to turn my positive action into a negative though...

Or maybe it's because there aren't any active DT members who browse Mining forums, and no one bothered reporting it somewhere it will be seen?
