Why pay people to be brainless idiots when there are millions and millions of people who will be untiring brainless idiots all day long for free?

No, the average bitcoin customer already didn't have a lot of money in "evil fiat currency" to begin with before bitcoin, and the total market capitalization of the entire bitcoin system is smaller than about two hours of trading profits at Goldman Sachs.  Why would they care?  Moreso, with people like me who think most bitcoin embracers are completely nuts to choose this system over putting their assets in a bank, why would they bother?  There are already enough voices of dissent out there.

So..a little over a year later and we have a percentage of how many accounts on here are full of shit. (I say 'accounts' instead of 'people' because many are sockpuppets)

Roughly 60% of the accounts on here are ran by the same old gang of dickheads - we know that now.

Not sure where you get 60%.

But I find it funny to peruse the absolutely certain comments from this community as to how absurd is the idea that people are hired to disrupt these forums.  This, in spite of the fact that this kind of activity has by now gone mainstream.  This is an article from the guardian that describes the "sock puppet" phenomenon.

If you are a man, chances are you are a know-it-all.  If you are also a software engineer it is a certainty.

If you have been on the speculation subforum for long you will know it's probably true, other than that some of the FUDers, rather than being paid, may have vested interests in the old system themselves.

e.g., check out this guy here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=28488 Why did he show up only after Bitcoin crashes? If he is not interested in Bitcoin at all,  why did he feel it's his business to spread all kinds of "doom and gloom" to the most fervent believers of Bitcoin? Why does his website contain nothing but FUDs? Do you believe he did all this just because he was, like he claimed, concerned that people will lose money to Bitcoin?

Shilling is an industry, you have to see it to believe it.

I doubt they pay people just to troll the forums. I'm sure they have a few people that have keywords on google so that whenever something is made with that topic they get an email about it. Just like any stock trader watching the competition.

If everyone is thinking outside the box, there is a new box.

The 60% is the 59.7% that voted "no", despite the fact that the government has already admitted that they troll forums.

I don't think people can be that stupid, or that certain, and that leads to the conclusion that those who voted "no" are the gov paid trollers themselves.

You are correct. it's value is too unstable to contract, estimate, forecast or pay anyone in, it's too slow to transact and it cannot handle large liquidity exchanges without huge value penalties, so it's limited to small potatoes transactions and really no competition for money.

It is a serious threat to the debit and credit card monopolies though, and a huger still challenge to the central banksters because it endangers the lifeblood of their most treasured deregulated  "credit swap derivatives" loophole.

Standard human behavior is to skip by posts that people find unimportant. They don't actually take time out to block/ignore spammers. We need a hard auto silence switch. Something like 2.5% of all established members ignoring? If you have spent 4 days and 4 hours of your time here to become established, and you are ignoring people, its a serious issue.

Thanks in advance!

But in all seriousness, yes I can be that stupid. I still fail to grasp why the Illuminati would pay for something they'd get for free anyways.

So I get the ignore system, but without also implementing a secondary authentication this leads to situations like
mine wherein my account was hacked, a hacker posing as me ran around every major thread one Wednesday (7/10),
then when I logged in on Friday I discovered a bunch of people had suddenly ignored me and this prick had bid on
multiple posts in my name which suddenly makes me look like an asshole, all the while I was probably sleeping.

Two form authy seems like it would've made this much less feasible, and I wouldn't have landed on anyones shit list.

Yes, I've upgraded my password.

cryptoanarchist is not a fool. I like the handle and image.

OF COURSE THE ELITE HAVE THEIR HANDLES AND AGENTS IN THIS PLACE!!!!

This forum is the single MOST important forums and places online right now for the banksters and powers that be to try (last gasp) to keep their handle on the monetary controls.

Why does Bitrebel have 65+ Ignores?
Because Bitrebel says things that some people do not want YOU to hear.

This is a no brainer to me, but would love to hear other people's input.

I have no doubt there are people being paid from all sorts of different industries to read and post on this forum.

Not just banking, but other industries as well.

It's the nature of the net.

Trolling ? No.

Spreading some propaganda ? Yes, why not. That is possible.
