I think the Bitcoin Foundation actually has bigger problems now.

DannyHamilton I wasn't sure if you were trolling or not, but the above post makes it apparent.

Not trolling.  Just trying to make a point that a significant number of people don't seem to be able to grasp.

I think it's silly to put Satoshi's name as a "founder" of the bitcoin foundation.  Honorary or otherwise.

But it doesn't really matter how many bitcointalk.org members come to this thread and complain about it.  They're going to do what ever they want, and all of us wanting them to do something different won't change that.  If they take (or took?) his name off, it's because they decided that's what they want to do.

To a large extent this is all just a bunch of "tilting at windmills"

You did a good job trolling this thread mate. Keep it up, see where it takes you.

Satoshi Nakamoto was not a founder of the bitcoin foundation. It  is highly unethical for him to be listed as a founder. It is not an honorary title. Satoshi created a decentralised system. He would hate the foundation's centralisation.

Now that a highly controversial figure has been elected to the board I think it is imperative that the foundation stops claiming legitimacy by stating that Satoshi was in any way a founder or in any way approved of that rotten centalisation.

To be clear: Satoshi is a member of the founders class and afforded the rights, privileges, and responsibilities thereof should he chose to participate.

Hardforks aren't that hard.

As chair of the election committee, I can assure you your hate should be directed at the voters. This was _their_ decision. But, you don't need to trust me. Every voter received the hash of their encrypted ballot and the list of all the ballot hashes is available to each voter.

Obviously but they make up the foundation. Also maybe people with this criminal background should be removed.

churches with their clergy of pedophiles links themselves to the founder of faith(jesus)
UK BBC links their board members/staff of pedophiles with government.
TBF links their board members of pedophiles with the founder of cryptography

in short. don't trust organizations that try to be tied to a higher power as they all seem to have pedophiles amongst them

If the foundation is claiming to speak on our behalf then the vote should be open to all and there obviously should be some rules as to who can stand as a candidate and or when they must resign.

How can humans complain about the Bitcoin Foundation and say "Don't support them" while they in fact are sitting on a Bitcoin Foundation forum?(Or did I get that wrong? I just noticed the Foundation linked here) It is like eating at McDonalds, complaining about how bad McDonalds hamburgers are, while eating away thinking you're at burger king. If, I didn't get the first part wrong Wink

You must have Bruno on ignore then.  I think he has outdone himself and probably has added over 100 posts to his 20,000 post count on this subject (Brock Pierce) alone.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=593492.0
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=602198.0

(and many, many other threads he has started on the subject)

Our family was terrorized by Homeland Security.  Read all about it here:  http://www.jmwagner.com/ and http://www.burtw.com/  Any donations to help us recover from the $300,000 in legal fees and forced donations to the Federal Asset Forfeiture slush fund are greatly appreciated!

I completely missed it, I like Bruno a lot, he is a great bitcoiner, just that I should be more open to seeing things like this.

Thank you. Going to read them right now!

How can you speak for Satoshi?  Do you know him personally?  Has he told you that he doesn't want to be associated with the Foundation?  Can you prove that he didn't give the foundation permission to list him?

It is highly unethical for you to be deciding on behalf of Satoshi if he should be listed unless he has given you permission to do so.  Let him speak for himself if he is against it.
It should be up to the Bitcoin Foundation to prove that he wants to be associated with the Foundation, and not vice versa. Burden of proof.

Where is Satoshi on the list of Bitcoin Foundation?

"Creator/Inventor of Bitcoin" does not equal "Founding Member of the NAMBLA Bitcoin Foundation"

Not even close.
