Check out this bitcoin slight where once again - people get totally hung up on the 'mining' aspect of bitcoin.
Why on earth people think they should participate in the securing of the network in order to use bitcoin is beyond me.
These people supposedly have something to do with technology. pfft.

Note their message about finding out how to help NTEN raise "actual currency"

If these guys can't be hit with a clue stick - I hope they're the last to get on the bitcoin100 list  Angry


edit: according to the message from Brett on that page - they're potentially open to it, so I probably shouldn't be so disparaging of them here just because the humour comes across to me as a bit of a cheap shot.

Looks like you set them straight.  Nice job julz.

Losing hundreds of Bitcoins with the best scammers in the business - BFL, Avalon, KNC, HashFast.

The best way to convince these guys would be to get them to post a Bitcoin address - or even setup an instawallet or something for them, and get people to donate BTC.

Selling out to advertisers shows you respect neither yourself nor the rest of us.
