How does it feel to have a site completely devoted to trashing possibly one of the greatest software developments of modern-day time?

Do you know it makes you look completely foolish, therefore everything you say in that site is a complete waist of time?

Just letting you know how pathetic it

I actually i like his website and try to view it every other week or so. It is humorous and sometimes gives an
insight into how this fourm has a group think going on with some events. If you cannot take some scalding
criticism and poking of sticks into what you are doing... you might just have a really one sided view of what
is going on.

I read Something Awful's Bitcoin thread (the one in GBS) for the same reason.

Same here, it’s a must read. Cheesy

It's interesting to take a snapshot every 100 pages, and make a notion of opinion of same people and how it changed over time. Good practical example of short memory.

Sorry for the misspell Wink.

My point still stands; the entire existence of his site is truly pathetic.

He should be using his time to build something good for the community, instead of trying to make money off us (adsense) by misrepresenting our entire project... He knows half of the assumptions made on his site aren't even remotely true, yet he continues to push it down everyone's throat because it’s “funny”. Slowly he along with all the other charlatans who so adamantly wish for the death of our community will soon start to realize the slow and painful truth.

Bitcoin is not what they thought it was.
Bitcoin is not going anywhere anytime soon.
Bitcoin is already much bigger than any of them will ever be.

Yes.. buttcoin strikes below the waist Smiley

I think the buttcoin and the something awful threads are all good fun.
Healthy skepticism combined with ridicule is a good counterbalance to some of the excesses that can occur around here when people feed off each others enthusiasm a bit much.
I'm very pro-bitcoin myself.. and love a bit of enthusiasm.. just nice to keep a level head about it is all!

I think what should be of more concern is some of the journalists and bloggers who feed off each other's poor reporting and inaccuracies.
Some of the trashy headlines and outright BS they perpetuate is really groan-worthy.
I know the technicalities of bitcoin can be hard to understand, and there are valid reasons to maintain some skepticism about bitcoin's potential - but you'd think more journalists would make a better effort at doing their research.

Still don't get the following things:

1) Why organize a convention witch is almost 100% about the fact that there coming more conventions? I mean in a convention you announce things that are all about the subject the convention is about imho. So for instance that the Dutch, Russian and Arabic Bitcoin Show are going live next week. Or that the mainstream ad is gonna be live this month.

2) Bruce can better push this cruise money into his mainstream ad he announced a couple of months ago, seems a better thing for Bitcoin to me instead of a cruise.

There's also an earlier - and much shorter - Bitcoin thread in BFC.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

Forums have changed over the years it seems. There have always been trolls, but it seems like trolling has become acceptable by more people nowadays. Are these people that just can't get any friends on facebook?

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Only by reading the trolls on this forum would you believe that the conference was even 5% about the next one.  That announcement was made during the convention.  It took a few minutes.  The conference was so much more then that.  Deals and connections where made.   It was about discussion, strategies, new products (and there were many) and of course of bitcoin.  Not only did I have a great time, I made money (in the form of BTC) and bought some cool stuff.

Bitcoin is not what they thought it was.
Bitcoin is not going anywhere anytime soon.
Bitcoin is already much bigger than any of them will ever be.

I would argue that I have done more to spread the word of bitcoins than 99% of the people on these forums. My site gets some good traffic, has branched out on Twitter and Facebook, and brought lots of new people into Bitcoin that had no idea what it was. You should be kissing my feet!
I make around 19 cents a day from the Adsense ads. I'm not doing this to profit, I'm doing it because it's fun.
I may run a satire site, but I don't post anything on the site that isn't true. Except that Lionhat Security thing, I totally made that shit up.
I don't wish death to your community, what else would I have to feed on? Please don't make yourself out to be some sort of martyr, you're just a bitcoin grunt like most people here.

Here's a quote on why I love these forums and everyone here.

From the Bitcoin conference site:
Quote
History in the Making

Already, one of the largest television news networks in the world has told us they will be here broadcasting live.   And, of course, OnlyOneTV.com global television network is sponsoring and hosting the event... so you can be sure that we will be broadcasting the entire event live as well.

Wall to Wall Major Global Media

Some of the media outlets who have said they will be here include:

CNN International
Al Jazeera English
Blomberg Television
Wall Street Journal
The New York Observer
BusinessWeek
Wired Magazine
SmarterMoney
NPR
Forbes
Fortune
CNN / Money
The Atlantic
Radio Australia
Freedomain Radio

It's Monday. No coverage of this conference found in Google News or Bing News so far. Zero. Nothing.   Not even a mention in major tech blogs.

From the pictures of the event, it looks like about fifty people showed up.
