Do I get a bonus for mine?
It is hipster cool to mock by embracing 90's Freddie's default avatar and seeing everybody using the same one. It is not getting the joke to make your own...

I noticed a side effect: I used to look for my posts in threads by the avatar, it's not so easy any more!

how many days do I have to use this avatar?
End of the week, I'll probably use all the 1 BTC before someone gets to request and just change it for Saturday.

Im just glad it wasnt justin bieber.

I just came up with a commit for SMF v3.0...

You'll notice that I was already paid for having participated and I would like to suggest that it is you who now doesn't get the joke.

And for what its worth, I did not make my own.

Considering FPjr was my Avatar since I switched from my custom SS-Luke-jr avatar and after seeing it all over the forum one night while half asleep still, I had a bit of a mad panic because for a few minutes I actually thought my account was hi-jacked till I noticed the usernames associated with the posts..LOL.....which in turn caused me stress, shouldn't I be eligible for something ? for pain and suffering ?

Clearly my random happenstance of choosing Freddie Prinze Jr. as the most ironic celebrity in the preinstalled avatars was unresearched; I did not perform due diligence to see who may have used the avatar before at any point in time, therefore I must extend my most heartfelt apologies. The Internet is a place where we have the expectation that no one's feelings will ever get hurt. Therefore, to compensate you for your emotional distress, I can offer you 0.05 BTC when you change your avatar back to Freddie Jr.

Could the amount, instead, be donated to the bulanula 'Get my $4 back' Fund ?

LOL. It seems my hard approach to scammers has struck a chord with some of the members that had to go through the same procedure with these useless lying scammers on this forum.

I think taking the hard on approach is much more productive in the end with these repetitive scammers.

They see us as easy prey and they come and bite time and time again for easy $$$. 

If they find out that we CAN be bothered and we WILL investigate and punish them then maybe they will consider stopping their scamming.

I think it could be a case of the same bunch of scammers coming again and again for the easy bite. If we can teach them otherwise then that is another win for BTC not to be seen as the currency of scammers and for bitcointalk.org as the forum of scams.

Thank you for the support bitlane ! Hope you like my new line alongside the FPJ avatar Cheesy

Hey, I'm with YOU on this one. My only concern was how quickly you posted his personal data. You could have used it as a 'Playing Card' and kept it 'in the hole' rather than playing it so quickly Wink

You and I have had great arguments in the past, here and on BTC-E Exchange, but I still know you are a decent guy (if not a bit of a hot head like me) and I can appreciate that. What's right is what's right.
I just think you 'jumped' too quickly and played out a great bargaining chip too soon Wink

Well you certainly have a point there bitlane.
 
The funniest thing is : I did go that route. I told him that I would release this information if tomorrow at 11 AM GMT he did not send any BTCs. I told him I would call him and talk it over tomorrow and then I would have released the personal information.

But no, he did not settle for that. He attacked me in these two threads ( now locked !!! why would he lock them if he had nothing to hide ? ) saying I am the scammer : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=64192.20 and https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=64188.20

I had to reveal the information hoping he will realise his mistake but that did not happen. When he clearly is in the wrong here he decides to attack me ( even before I revealed anything publicly ! ) Huh

I asked him to provide evidence of the so-called "hacking" ( actually a scape goat for his unwillingness to give the shares to the miners ) and he closed the threads.

As for the fund, I really appreciate you and JWU42's generosity but this is not about the money for me. At this point I have spent more time and effort in pursuing the scammer than what the debt is actually worth.

It is about knowing that I am doing something to counter the influx of determined, repetitive scammers on these forums / this community. Determined and persistent scammers need to be matched with determined and perseverent folks that hate getting scammer ( like me and yourself ).

I still will pursue him and call him tomorrow at my expense from the UK to the US. Maybe we should fund an organization with dedicated people to fight and chase scammers / verify legit businesses ? I think BTC really is suffering from this "wild west / each man does his own justice" approach because it is quite hard going it alone against the bunch of scammers found everywhere. Especially after the many incidents we have had with mining pools / online wallets just being "hacked" and disappearing with the coins without trace.  

It is easy to scam the sheep and come back a second time for it but if they try to scam ME I will make sure to at least give them HELL for it ( even if I am not probably getting the coins back anyway ) !

What we need is like at the woot.com forums where each user gets 5 randomly generated avatars to choose from, and none of them are ever the same. Then we can ID each other based on pic.
