I do believe this user used kyc of the bottle type object and as the bottle type object was clearly visible in the images submitted it is valid.

Nah we have to leave them here. Last year we had to explain the system up until about a week after it was gone Grin.

I think you are discriminating against Thermos. A Thermos should be able to change his color, gender or age as they please.

He may have represented himself as Theymos but I'm sure he just made a clerical error with his name when KYC was not mandatory.

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

In creating a fake image used a real photo of a brown shirt Howard Bondurant's (Jason Clarke) from the site https://us.propstoreauction.com/view-auctions/catalog/id/134/lot/27141/?url=%2Fview-auctions%2Findividual-lots%2F%3F%26page%3D3

OP, you forgot to upload Archived link. When you start scam accusatiin this thing in neccessary because abusers may try to hide traces.
You seem to be under the impression that theymos is the guy on the picture. You're mistaken, theymos is the bottle. The picture is real!
Did you just called theymos bottle? I think it's offence! Thermos is thermos, not a bottle Cheesy

My gender fluid leaked out a long time ago, and now I'm just a confused attack helicopter, which I duly notified Theymos of.

This KYC "joke" is incredibly offensive to other types of helicopters. I'm horrified to think how the channel 5 traffic chopper must feel about all this. Or the medevac on the hospital roof.

I was busy yesterday, so I missed such a big fun on April 1st.
I read back yesterday posts and topics, what I found is:
- Yesterday, theymos verified as a snitch.
- Today, he refunded all merits to souvenir buyers.
There is proof of his statement about refund process
Sadly, we ran out of our stock of zero items. So everyone gets a full refund:

In conclusion, it seems that theymos is not a snitch at all.

Souvenir shop closed, but in the future, we might see collectible coin of bitcointalk forum. Admin has still kept this idea in mind, so it's a good news for bitcointalkers and collectors.

I'm probably not going to create any real bitcointalk.org merch anytime soon (except for the collectible coin idea), but if anyone else wants to sell such things, feel free.

Where was the quote about the collectible coin from? Thst seems like an interesting idea.

Also, I learnt cyrus changed his name to smiley cyrus Grin.

This KYC "joke" is incredibly offensive to other types of helicopters. I'm horrified to think how the channel 5 traffic chopper must feel about all this. Or the medevac on the hospital roof.

Not the mention the aeroplanes that will undoubtably be suffering... Who's thinking of airbus and beoing here and how they might react?

And yes, bitcointalk is an equal opportunity forum--any member is fair game for trolling and serious post dilution, and good luck trying to get anyone to discuss things of importance.  Heh heh.  But I still love it.

I was offended that my preferred pronoun and identity was not available.

Sex = yes
I am overweight but I identify as trans-slender.

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