SLUSH is a dinosaur, P2Pool all the way.
You stupid motherfuckers.
Im all for P2pool but the way you guys advertise/plug it is DEPLORABLE.
This thread has nothing to do with slush's pool. It has to do with us helping someone in the community who's helped us all mine thousands upon thousands of Bitcoins and got dealt a bad hand.
So, Fuck off.
I am one of the loudest P2Pool supporters, and I agree, this has nothing to do with Slush's pool. And it's certainly nice to see someone who doesn't disappear when the shit hits the fan (even if I think the fan could have been in a location with a lower possibility of flying shit). Props to Slush and Zhou.
There are plenty of legitimate reasons to promote P2Pool over traditional pools. And this situation is certainly one of them. There is no "hot wallet" to be stolen from P2Pool. But, Slush isn't disappearing, he is doing the right thing, and protecting his miners by paying out the stolen funds from his own pocket, which he should. Regardless of what you think of traditional pools, Slush is doing the right thing.
Also, I hope, rg and anyone else, that you aren't letting a few guys with no tact sour your opinion of P2Pool or the miners there. I respect all the pool ops, even if I do go out of my way to convince others that traditional pools aren't always the best choice when it comes to mining.
Pool ops provided a valuable service allowing small miners to get a slice of the pie in the face of increasing difficulty. Without them, the network would be nowhere close to the size it is now! That said, I hope every pool can be a "smart pool" similar to P2Pool some day.
Nah it didnt. I asked nanotube if these guys were even involved with p2pool and he informed me they're nobodies.
So no big deal, just typical forum lamers
