You are correct, context is my friend. So are semantics as you so eloquently put it.
People without personal issues are not people. Because he is a person that does not give him the ability to escape morality, rather he is bound by it.
You don't know the circumstances of his leave of absence and reason for pool shutdown. He could very well have cancer, I'd say fuck it too.
Yes there were dangers, and this is why I replied to a post warning about the dangers of mining at pools. Read the post that I replied to, I understand you fell for what Giga said about me avoiding responsibility but you should reread the thread and try to figure this out for yourself. Context is your friend.
You stated BurningToad owed you something. This is not the case completely. Remember context is my friend.
If you still have a "current balance" at ArsBitcoin, please go to http://arsbitcoin.com
to claim your balance sometime in the next 30 days. After that, I will bring the site down, but will hold any unclaimed bitcoins for another 30 days in case someone misses the window. Once this final window has passed, I will consider any leftover coins a donation to help cover server costs, which because of my neglect have still been fairly high despite no mining.
As for the unpaid SMPPS buffer, there isn't much I can do about it. This means that "Unpaid work" will not get paid at this point. Even if I turned mining back on, there is no saying whether the buffer would go up or down. I also do not have the 900ish bitcoins to pay out of my own pocket (as costs are already a problem.) I hope you can understand the SMPPS payment model always had this possibility.
Context of message:
In the left panel on ARSBitcoin.com there is "Unpaid Work" & "Current Balance". If you have mined coins from positive buffer or PPPS from negative buffer (Current Balance), you are welcome to come and claim your coins. Unpaid negative SMPPS buffer (Unpaid Work) will not be paid. There will be no future blocks to pay for unpaid work, the risk of mining SMPPS.
If you knew of the dangers and explained it, why are you even bringing that up? Because this is what you do.
Why are you questioning BT's morals when you knew this was a risk but continued to mine there anyway?
Every time something goes wrong for you, you attempt to drag someone else's name though the mud. You need to stop doing this.
BTW I use person in the way the common people will use it daily. Person comes from Greek and means "a mask", and a "person" in the USA was a way to make a "sovereign" have to follow state and federal laws. To state it more clearly a "person" is your corporate identity. If the people knew the significances of this the USA would be a very different place.
As for this, are you serious? I do believe "common people" use words as currently defined by most recent issues of dictionaries.Person
: Human, IndividualOwe
: To be under obligation to pay or repay in return for something received
