It's very telling that, even though they have accounts here, they posted that thread there, but not here. I'd respect them more if they would have said that they rejected us to our face, so to speak.
they would rather post on a forum that calls itself gof**kyourself
classy, Paxum, real classy
official statement? on a forum called "GoFuckYourself"? that's hilarious
is paxum so deeply rooted in the adult scene?
or is this a secret message? (wonder whom they address in that case then
rabble rabble rabble
blah blah blah
GFY is one of the major adult business forums online. It is unsuprising that Paxum would make an announcement there, because the adult business is a big deal to Paxum, unlike Bitcoin. All this talk of conspiracy pressures and whatnot fail to take into account that the portion of Paxum's (or any other mainstream or semi-mainstream financial company's) revenue that comes from Bitcoin is infinitesimal. No matter what the potential
of Bitcoin business in the future, when you're running a business you have to live in the present, and when some nickel-and-dime operation gets a disproportionate amount of the negative press you're reading, the simple answer is just cut it off and see what happens.
Anybody who was in the digital currency business between say 2002 and 2007 saw this exact script play out with PayPal, Moneybookers and other mainstream institutions against e-gold and other DGCs. One by one, the mainstream companies just nixed the DGCs, because it was less of a headache, expense and potential liability to not deal with them at all, than to take chances on uncertain legalities and rampant fraud that was a fact of life in that business.
