If you been there please don't click on the link (they love the attention.) I have already applied to be moderator here, and I swear to god I will handle it if I get the chance. About 200+ people would be banned overnight, but I swear to god I would clean this place up...

Hell yeah! After all, what good does free speech do anyway! It just makes people say stuff you don't want to hear. Go get em! Cheesy
There is a difference between free speech and disruptive speech sir.

One leads to change, the other leads to a jail cell.

EDIT: Or even worse, a mental institution. Which is where 90% of the SA members belong.

Oh, oh... Would you care to expound a little bit on the kind of speech that would land you in a jail cell? Tread carefully, my friend. There is only such a thing as free speech, everything else is an attempt at curtailing it.

Google "yell fire in a crowded theatre (or theater)" and see where that awful quote originally came from. You'll be shocked to learn it was used by a judge to throw in jail a bunch of Jewish pacifists who were against the US getting drawn into World War I. They were handing out pamphlets in Yiddish throughout New York, to stop the country from entering a ridiculous was between old monarchies and colonial powers in Europe. It was a despicable decision made by that judge, yet the phrase (like the equally ugly "I cannot define pornography but I sure know it when I see it") have become part of the conventional wisdom of the United States and, more depressingly, of its legislative and judicial wisdom as well.

If you ever do become a mod, and that's a big IF in view of your stated desire to ban around 200 folks, remember free speech is only important for those who disagree with us. Free speech only for those we agree with is a bit silly.

Cheers,

In FlipPro's America, the people of SA are the Jewish pacifists who will be jailed.

FlipPro, why do you hate free speech?

As I said, Amsterdam would be better than Pattaya - in my opinion.

Yes, but Pattaya is not bad. I'll just do the same Google search as for Amsterdam: http://www.google.com/search?q=pattaya+conferences

It's obviously a good place for conferences, and a lot of conferences seem to be held there without people talking about sex slaves and drugs in connection to those topics.


Btw, I'm sure we'd all love to have your streaming expertise available when you can next time! That sounds great.

Notice how the only people who have a problem with me banning people are the same people would be the ones catching that ban  Cheesy.

Hehe, FlipPro, what are you, 12? I have no reason to believe I would "catch a ban", and if I did, it really wouldn't matter much (you do realise this is just a tiny, obscure forum in a tiny, obscure corner of the internet, right?). I have a problem with banning people for what they say or think... just a problem I've had for a very long time now, in general. If you ban someone from expressing themselves, it only reflects badly on the weakness of your own ideas and arguments. If your position was solid, you'd have no need to ban anyone.

Where did that reference come from SGT lol. If anything they are the Nazis seeking to destroy and conquer.
If they succeed in killing this forum because of relaxed regulations then that's fine it was meant to happen this way.
We still got a chance to fight back though, most of the people I have been talking to are growing tired, and if ban hammers can't go down in this site, they sure as hell will go down in the 20 other Bitcoin community's.
Regardless they will never kill Bitcoin (which is what they ultimately want) and thankfully it will never happen. This forum is obviously not vital to Bitcoins growth, but it is becoming increasingly annoying to have any valid discussions without having some clown trying derail/troll the thread into oblivion.

It is important to separate out a few issues.

Regardless of all other issues people seem to want to bring up, Pattaya is simply not what anybody thinks, when you think "financial center of Asia."

Good point.

Singapore is a much better fit.

<------------ what he said

I'll be at the next NYC one if the world is still here and if bitcoin is still here. Someone's dumping quite some amounts today it seems it's dropped 3 bucks in the last few hours.  Before their is another "official conference" I'll probably come to one of the NYC meetups so I'm sure I'll meet those of you NYC based bitpeeps.

You're an American...you should know where your debts lie.

I am not from somethingawful, and I have a huge problem with your grand plan. The only thing that is a joke is the fact that you really think you deserve to be made a mod, especially in light of your recent declarations. I, for one, am extremely opposed to you wielding that power and have full faith that the staff and mods will make the right decision.

Well most of these can be consolidated into "bankers"  public debt is just banker endless fractional reserve banking. Actually no real money exists at this point. All debt.

Nicely said, particularly the last part.  Bitcoin will have to endure much worse than a few trolls from some forum, if you can't even handle that, then you probably just turn off your computer. 

Also, they don't want bitcoin dead, that wouldn't be any fun.  Kinda like watching Nascar, it's only fun when there are wrecks.

Are all the people that think Amsterdam is a bad location from the US or something?
No, they are trolls from the SA board.

I'm from EU and yeah...never heard such crap. Amsterdam is fine, there is nothing wrong with weed or sex, and even if those things were bad it's still a great location, easily reachable from anywhere in Europe and the largest city in the Netherlands...

Seems like some people think the world revolves around America, and everything that their precious government says is correct.
Very few people think that, even from America.  Most Americans think our government is crap.  The majority of Americans are for the legalization of weed and simply love sex.  There is a small (but vocal) minority that do not.  

I recommend you leave your sheltered pathetic little lives for some time and see the world from outside your little box, you will find that actually the rest of the world thinks the US is a joke and your not the center of the world.

I have traveled all over the world, including Amsterdam.  Very few people think the US is a joke, and despite OUR STUPID GOVERNMENT they still want to come here.   When in other countries, they complain about very similar things to what we do such as taxes, government waste and corruption, and the price of things.
+1 to this entire post.

What does a forum dedicated to an open source project have to do with censorship? Open source is only.. open source... conservapedia?

I'm not against you in the argument, i guess this forum needs a small cleanup but nothing extreme.

However this is totally the wrong thread for this discussion (and should probably be cleaned away).

I think you missed some of Flip's comments on how he wanted to ban everyone from this forum who doesn't agree with him.  That's how he does it  on Tweetforum too, which is why it has such a low user and postcount. That is what I was referring to.
