The developers of SC have been completely dishonest about the nature of their code since it was first distributed. There is a 12 million coin pre-mine which is set aside for the personal use of the lunatic who is the most vocal mouthpiece for it. They have made drastic and unnecessary changes to the structure of the coin, the block reward and the rules concerning mining it repeatedly without notice or warning to those folks who mined it, destroying much of the value of new coins to prop up the value of their privately held old coins. The entire distribution has been released under an illegal copyright notice and is essentially pirated software, using it makes any SC miner accessory to that crime.
See what I mean?
don't get me wrong I don't use solidcoins and don't plan on doing so,
but people on both sides of the argument are being childish.
