Atlas has never begged for money, last I checked. I haven't seen him under his original name for awhile now. I wonder if that alias will ever come back?

Why do you even try, Atlas? Just be yourself.

I think one day the operators of this site will realize that letting you have a dozen different accounts is probably undermining the perception of bitcoins to visitors.
Atlas may act under new identities but he has never done it out of fraudulent indent. If anything, I think it only gives a perception of choice. It reminds us that Bitcoin is of good and healthy esteem and it doesn't rely on conformity.

We don't need the illusion of a collective; Bitcoin acts over the choices of individuals. To people who hold this forum and Bitcoin as a whole responsible and damaged due to the choices and preferences of individuals would be a grave mistake. If anything, a loss for the individual who makes such a false judgement.

I encourage Atlas to remain himself and continue to act under his own preference. He has never harmed nor defrauded another man and certainly holds no power over the esteem of the forum and Bitcoin as a whole.

@HarveyAlpha (https://twitter.com/#!/HarveyAlpha) | It would be foolish to assert that there is no power above mine. Only the attitude that I take toward it will be quite another than that of the religious age: I shall be the enemy of every higher power.

You're just waiting for a big enough reason to  cash in your "moral code".  I doubt it would even take 100 bitcoins for you to vanish with the money.  $300 is a lot for a kid in highschool.

I am willing to bet all I have that Atlas wouldn't stand under any amount of money to compromise his moral preferences. He doesn't even claim to stand under any major law nor code but only his individual choice to prefer life. To me that is a man of true integrity. He respects people out of the inherit value they bring him which goes far deeper than intrinsic materials such as money.

He is not forced to act the way he is under insipid desires, a god or law: He chooses to love life.

It seems 4chan has had its share.

If I were a mod I would ban you here just for posting that screenshot. But you have made it onto my ignore list congrats.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

Why are you referring to yourself in the third person?  Is it because you want it to sound like someone else is complimenting you?

My only concern with this is that I suspect anyone with a twitter account who knows about bitcoin has likely already informed their followers to the point that they are sick of hearing about it.

+ Grin

I've found myself wandering aimlessly muttering "bitcoin...bitcoin...bitcoin..."

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Pretentious wanker or batshit crazy - they're the only types of people who talk about themselves in the third person.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

Oh hey ANOTHER thread where Atlas is begging for money.

Why did you not post this under one of your many existing aliases, Atlas?

Um, excuse me? all OTHER instances aside, here, all he did was set something up on ANOTHER service, THAT SERVICE is collecting money only from those who believe it's a good cause, and that service gives money to OTHER people. I don't see "Atlas" begging for, or receiving, any money. As certain someone would say, "check your premises"  Grin

He's soliciting for money to be sent to a "project" under his control.  For the tenth or so time.

He gets involved in a lot of projects. That's a good thing. In general the things for which he requests donations are worthy and relevant to people. I don't see the problem.

But here he is not in control of the money. At most he is in control of an idea. If you don't like the idea, don't support it. Those who do will (for the record, I don't). It's as if your dislike for him is so extreme, you don't even think about it any more, and just reach the same exact conclusions every time on autopilot.

I have an idea! I'm going to make a portable card-reader for bitcoin. You should send this collection service bitcoins for this idea, and they'll forward it along to the idea-creator. Don't worry, it's all going to the idea.

Please give me your money, because I am a shameless libertarian elite who deserves your money more than you do: 9Hkao8U82WWDp6SQGn4k7ad9gT1LWeL5s3

I find myself curious about the vague meaning in this.

While Atlas has failed in many endeavors, making an ad campaign on feedzebirds cannot possibly fail, and might even have an effect.  He actually went and did something, and nobody should point and laugh at him for doing so.
