Here is someone very happy about it:

https://litecointalk.org/index.php?topic=19292.0

I took the liberty and rewrote the text:

Quote
The Bitcoin Foundation has not been too fond of pedophiles. Maybe with this new board member, they would become more accepting of this and other pedophiles. So if you are a Bitcoin Foundation member, I urge you to go vote for this pedophile in the run-off erection, so that he can get the 52 votes needed to be erected to the vacated seat, formerly by Mark Karpeles of Mt Gox, ironically of which he'll oversee.

Now that I've penned it in perspective, how could I have been so blind? We cried like babies when the press got it wrong about Bitcoin, but now we hand them the headlines: Pedo- Brock Pierce Bags Vacant The Bitcoin Foundation Seat (film at 11, 12, 1, ... See the show!)

Performing for your joy
we've a sight not for the coy
A man and seven boys
keep it cool, keep it cool
We would like it to be known
the exhibits that were shown
Were exclusively Bitcoin's own,
all our own, all our own

Come and see the show,
come and see the show
Come and see the show
See the show

For those not up to speed: http://web.archive.org/web/20060208124607/http://www.fuckedcompany.com/den/

Care to guess who said the following?

Quote
[P]rostitution, adultery, necrophilia, bestiality, possession of child pornography, and even incest and pedophilia ... should be legal as long as no one is coerced. They are illegal only because of prejudice and narrowmindedness.
Some rules might be called for when these acts directly affect other people's interests. For incest, contraception could be mandatory to avoid risk of inbreeding. For prostitution, a license should be required to ensure prostitutes get regular medical check-ups, and they should have training and support in insisting on use of condoms. This will be an advance in public health, compared with the situation today.

For necrophilia, it might be necessary to ask the next of kin for permission if the decedent's will did not authorize it. Necrophilia would be my second choice for what should be done with my corpse, the first being scientific or medical use. Once my dead body is no longer of any use to me, it may as well be of some use to someone. Besides, I often enjoy rhinophytonecrophilia (nasal sex with dead plants).

Quote
I am skeptical of the claim that voluntarily pedophilia harms children. The arguments that it causes harm seem to be based on cases which aren't voluntary, which are then stretched by parents who are horrified by the idea that their little baby is maturing.

Quote
There is little evidence to justify the widespread assumption that willing participation in pedophilia hurts children.

Granted, children may not dare say no to an older relative, or may not realize they could say no; in that case, even if they do not overtly object, the relationship may still feel imposed to them. That's not willing participation, it's imposed participation, a different issue.

I've read that male dolphins try to have sex with humans, and female apes solicit sex from humans. What is wrong with giving them what they want, if that's what turns you on, or even just to gratify them?

There will be a run-off election, so falling short this time isn't enough to keep Brock Pierce from further penetrating the community.

He should not be a part of the Foundation.
Bitcoin would further be unfairly seen as a criminal element with him.

Given the circumstances surrounding the departure of the two previous directors, one would think that candidates would be chosen who are as "pure as Caesar's wife".  This situation casts doubt not only the Bitcoin Foundation, but on the entire Bitcoin Community.

Nay, the whole human race.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Save the Human Race!
Stop Brock from getting elected.

Seriously, someone with his background is really close to getting accepted on the Bitcoin Foundation?
How?
Why?
You must be joking?

BP will serve as a BTC self destruct button if/when they realize that cryptos cannot be controlled. Talk about a FUD bomb..

Not sure, but unless The Bitcoin Foundation has truly lost its fuckin' mind, Brock Pierce's name won't be on the next ballot.

Perhaps he is a rising star, not ment to be stopped?
Maybe he's on a special assignment and for the greater good we shouldn't question his arrival?  Tongue

We can not put any kind of presume on this foundation. It is their foundation and to be honest best thing we can do is to ignore it or create alternative one.
