The problem is, many new posters (on any internet forum) are just lazy and don't want to put forth any effort learning something and instead just have someone tell them what to do.  People who put forth effort learning don't feel like rewarding lazy people.  Your post is claiming the people who respond to the "noobs" are the problem.  Why are the lazy people trying to figure out how to get "free money" not a problem?

Ah that is why we had a newbie hell a while ago to force people to look things up but Theymos got rid of that so you could connect with the people, we all still run under the assumption that the newbies pick up the knowledge not have it handed to them on a silver spoon Smiley.

Again,

Many people (the average person) has a real life, real family, real friends and a real job or business.

To expect a new person filter through more than just the basics (and to believe that person should learn simply by reading and NEVER asking questions or processing) shows the failure humanity is moving towards at breakneck speed.

Mining
Trading
Exchanges
Speculating
Pooling
Contracts
Etc, etc


Should a person be expertly versed IN EVERY aspect before asking a question?

Considering the average person on the internet does not know the difference between a Kb and Mb and Gb....do you REALLY think they should understand Mh/s vs Th/s and how that relates to the fluctuating market?

Seriously?

come on...

the arrogance of such thinking is beyond xenophobia...

And who IRL lives like this?

if you travel and go to a new town, do you NOT ask for directions because you are expected to read every book from the chamber of commerce, Google Maps, City, County and State laws, Restaurant reviews - etc

cmon

PEOPLE ASK QUESTIONS


be a helpful human being -- or go back to your troll cave

but don't attack people for not knowing...because there was a time when you didn't know either.

YES YOU are responsible for slow BTC growth...but you are too proud and ignorant to realize it

op has a point. all these self-proclaimed early adopters (aka bag holders who bought at $700) who think they are entitled to get the money of the stupid, uneducated masses are certainly not the best ambassadors for bitcoin. ladies, you want something from the average joe, he doesn't want anything from you. so telling him to fuck of whenever he shows the slightest interest in your funny online money is just wrong.

GREETINGS XENOPHOBES!

You -- YES YOU!

You are the reason BTC has NOT taken the world by storm.

You heard about bitcoin 1,2 maybe 3 years ago. You spent 180 hours STRAIGHT with no sleep drinking mountain dew so you could understand every possible intricacy of all that is Bitcoin!

You have kept up to date, you PREDICTED the fall of MT GOX, YOU FIGURED OUT WHO SATOSHI was before anyone else, you get a google alert for Bitcoin BTC and even the letter B!

You own a Bitcasino or BitFaucet (and make sure you post often so that your signature advertises it!)

Kudos to you, as you were...well to use internet forum jargon "FIRST!"

Good for you...you knew before anyone, you still know.  You are current on hashrates, conversion rates, highs/lows, ASICS, S1/S2, satoshi, cross currency transactions, up and comers like 42, has beens, wanna bees...i mean you "get it"


Too bad for the rest of the world.  When they come around, they have a lot of catching up to do.  But we can count on you.  We can count on you to try to give yourself some self worth by attempting to lower the worth of others.  You will resort to name calling and picture posting.  Ask them if they "are mad, bro".  Call them "noob". Even really show how unintelligent you are by calling them "autistic" or "retarded" and using it as an epitaph (how asinine and insensitive is that?). If all else fails, call them a girl or child...and finally, use lots of profanity!

You see, when people come to "check" out bitcoin on forums like this, you will be quick to tell them how anything they say is unoriginal as you have been there and done that and already discussed it a year ago already *yawn* how boring for you, right?   You will let them know that they should use the search feature of the forum and spend hours searching years of posts to try to find one that manages to address their unique CURRENT question or comment.  You will be sure to tell them to use google, and search through the 10s of 1000s of web pages created by bitcasino and bitfaucet sites to try to find a legit answer that is actually up-to-date.

no the government, IRS, CHINA, Market fluctuation etc


None of those things stop bitcoin from being readily accepted and used...

it is those who have self appointed themselves as all-knowing gatekeepers.  Those who ruin it for the sincere humans who participate in BTC.  Those who are lonely little angry trolls with way too much time on their hands and way too little sense to use it productively.

In the real world - for the average person BTC is not EVERYTHING, and people have lives, family, friends, businesses...and not enough time or interest to find out who Satoshi is and what the Master Plan for BTC iss.  They just want practical application. 

Trolls attack enmasse all those who are "new" and drive away many big players who could make a big difference in adoption.

Xenophobia - thats the problem...and each person is either a part of the problem or part of the solution.

I can only imagine the nonsense that will be posted in defense of the "clique"....so i better unwatch it now.


I think you have some sand in your vag.

Seriously thought. you may have just titled this post:

"Attention all trolls: I am a wildly erratic, self conscious person with low self esteem.  Why do you gotta call names?!?!"

Xenophobia?  Maybe by the general populace, not by the bitcoin community.

But mostly I think it just needs better security and more user-friendliness
to see faster and wider adoption.

well, i thought about whether or not to roll in the mud and decided 'fuck it'

I agree and disagree.

i'll agree that on a lot, if not all, of the forums I've been on there are some 'established' members that get a bang out of telling the new kids to STFU.  I think that's bullshit, but it's meaningless, par for the course, bullshit that dissipates over time.  On a forum like this, populated by techno-types that often think they're the smartest kid on the block already, maybe/probably that's a bit magnified.

i'll not necessarily agree with the approach of someone poking them in the eye intentionally and then waving one's hands in the air in surprise when the response is what it predictably is.

Don't get me wrong, if people want to fight, i don't care.  If people want to troll, I don't care.  If someone is all pissed off and wants to start a thread bitching about it I still don't care.  

I'm all about people just letting fly, although if the intent is to promote goodwill, stabbing people in the eye with a fork ain't gonna get it done.  Making sensible posts over the course of a month or more will further that cause much more effectively, IMO.

With that said, y'all rock on.....

OP needs to change his tone.  He has some points, but chooses to attack and gain attention with barbs, generalizations, and name calling rather than civilized intelligent discussion.

If you look hard enough, there's plenty of intelligent topics discussed without mud slinging involved.

Usually if you start out civilized, it's reciprocated.

Sorry to hear yours and others experience in BCT hasn't been the most welcoming.

Just like in life and in general, there's a learning curve.  Not saying you have to read the whole forum line by line, but the longer you're here the more you "ingest".

Everyone here has been a Newbie at some point and probably got told to use "the search feature" or LMGTFY.

I think a big part of that is there used to be a "Newbie hell", where you couldn't post as much, so you'd just have to stick to the Beginners and Newbie section for quite a while until you graduated to Jr. Member.  In a way, I thought Newbie Hell made me read more content and see how Sr. and Hero members conducted and answered questions since they've most likely been there from the beginning.

Hang in there, lighten your tone a little, and keep your posts a little shorter.
