As an update.
Due to a recent decision from the management team on Overclock.net we now will no longer support the discussion of Bitcoin or any other elements of it.
The Use of Bitcoin breaches our TOS as you can use Bitcoin to earn currency. It specifically states in the OCN TOS that you may not Directly or Indirectly profit from the use of OCN. As such we cannot support the Bitcoin project. We also feel that the Bitcoin project does not fit in with goals we strive for on OCN.
We have nothing against the Bitcoin project, it simply does not fit the purpose and goals of Overclock.Net
What a bunch of bullocks. Screw OCN. 6000+ posts and 4 years later, I'm leaving. Sick of the crap that they pull.
I can understand not advertising about your own websites to some extent. But not allowing discussion of Bitcoins because you can make money from it? Seriously?
BTW, the PRIMARY motivation of OCN for doing this is to keep everyone on the site folding@home - it has nothing to do with the actual bitcoin discussion. OCN is one of the top ranked communities for folding, and I'm sure they don't want to see their ranking drop because a bunch of folders switched over to bitcoining.
I am unsure of who sent this to you, but discussion of the project was not banned after the distributed computing forum announcement was made (the second version).
