Why is politeness so important to old people?

Because when I am giving someone my business or money, I would like to be treated with respect, not like some dude on facebook.

So the answer to "why is politeness important?" is "because I want them to be polite when they talk to me". Thanks, now I get it.

"Hey asshole, why is your money not in my wallet yet? Get to it stat!"

Is this what you'd rather have?

Except for the fact that I have never had a transfer go through in "less than 48 hours" as they promise. It always takes over 120 hours not counting weekends.

You're so edgy I cut myself.

It's a good thing bitcoin is open for business to people from all backgrounds and ages. We'll see how the experiment goes. In a traditional business environment, however, if you showed lack of English skills as I have seen on these forums or lack of the use of >register< you'd have to fear that businesses would discontinue to work with you. I don't think everyone needs to be proficient in English, but if you want to do business with people internationally, it's a must. If you write to CEOs, you'd never even get a reply to your email if it was written in the wrong register, let alone grammar.

Then again, bitcoin is not a traditional business environment.

I routinely write e-mails without any kind of fluff, generally it's:

Quote from: my_emails
Yourname,

Lorem ipsum.  Blahblahblah.  Blhablahblah.  Blahblahblah.

Mike
Sent from my iPhone <--- if applicable (part of its signature)

I view myself as plenty professional.  I get straight to the point.  If my e-mail contains any decorative text, it's because I meant it.

Go Google for e-mails sent by Steve Jobs.  They're even briefer.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

Well no offense, but I imagine nobody would expect much more than that from a trinket seller.  Additionally, the source of the complaints is being rude, or just one word replies, which are both unprofessional.  Your emails are neither, and I for one appreciate brevity.

Declarative statements are the new prose. I have two ears and one mouth. Folks seem to prefer that I listen and respond. I hope they reciprocate.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Well, it's good to be brief. But unless you are a multi-billionaire, I don't think you will get away with multi-billionaire-esque emails.

I'm pretty sure this email would go straight to my spam folder.
