This place isn't terribly user-friendly.

That's the problem with being on the bleeding edge of things. Not a whole lot of user friendliness. But it's good that there are patient people like you on these boards trying to keep the rest of us from scaring off the newbies!  Cheesy

Does anybody realize that all of the "nays" are short sighted and shortly written? Like "nope, it's a scam for sure".

Whilst all of the "yays" are well thought out, well written, and well researched?

I'm quite sure one can tell who's right from that aspect alone.

Twilight seems to not have cared for the response, since s/he registered in order to post once, and logged off never to return.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

Give it a little bit of time--not everyone lives online.

Why would anyone want to go out there?

I appreciate people like emansipator who have tons of patience and are apt at clearly explaining things to newbies.  However, I learned a lot about bitcoins by browsing previous topics and posts.  My lurking to posting ratio is quite high.  I did ask the standard "why isn't my pc generating bitcoins" question, but learned most everything else I know by lurking.  Tongue
