And you can tell by the photo that she was in the middle of a boardroom meeting when it was taken?  That's a wonderful talent if so, because I don't think anyone else can tell that.  And you also know for a fact she wears that exact outfit to every business meeting and never changes?  Must be clairvoyant too.   Roll Eyes

Seriously, stop clutching at straws and get off your high horse, please.  Besides that, you don't get to decide what is appropriate attire and what isn't.  It's entirely subjective and will vary from person to person. Just because someone ventures into the world of business, it doesn't mean they suddenly have to change who they are or seek your approval on what they are allowed to wear.  Who do you think you are?  She can wear whatever the hell she likes and if you want to judge someone based on their appearance, your opinion probably isn't worth much in my view.  You clearly stated that she isn't trustworthy based on nothing more than her appearance in a photo that you have no idea where or when it was taken, plus a single conversation with the foundation in which you have no idea what was even said.  Get over yourself.

Again, you lack the experience to know that the picture in that article was something we call a "headshot". It was done by a professional photographer with special lighting in a studio. This is not just some photograph, but it is used to represent a person in business at their highest and most true expression of who they are in their profession. She is attempting to be a lobbyist in Washington DC and wearing attire that is not appropriate in that setting.

By your logic, she would be just as respectable if she wore a bikini to Capital Hill. You need to get off your high horse and submit to the fact that the world has standards of which you are obviously and totally unaware. Go educate yourself on this matter before spewing some ignorant babble again.

Skipping past the part where you're so far up your own arse you think no one knows what a headshot is, you know for a fact this photo was taken for the specific purpose of her new job in lobbying?  Again with the impressive psychic powers.  Her previous job was as a writer, so for all you know, the headshot could have been a remnant from that job.  And even if it was a photo just for that article, it doesn't mean she wears that all the time.  Once again it looks like you just enjoy jumping to baseless conclusions with no evidence.  Please keep telling us how we're all ignorant though, that's not making you look like a presumptuous bellend in the slightest.

When you do any interview for a new business, you give the publication a CURRENT headshot for them to use in the story. You do not, ever, do a round of press interviews for a new business and allow journalists to use some random headshot from any previous job that they decide upon.

The fact that you pretend not to know this is enough to conclude that you are making excuses for her obviously poor dress etiquette. There is also the fact that you said "She can wear whatever she wants" as if I was trying to say all women should not be allowed to dress in certain ways. You are the one making up conclusions about me based on nothing, with no apparent knowledge of the field in which she works.

You're not saying they aren't allowed to dress in certain ways, you're saying they're not trustworthy if they dress in certain ways:

This is disgusting. I feel sick right now. Cleavage in her business photo? Yeah, you can totally trust her!

I'm sorry if a couple of people, based on those words, think that makes you sound like a terrible person, but it does.  You're saying because she's showing cleavage in a photo, she's not trustworthy.  Keep trying to distort that if you like, or you could do the decent thing and withdraw the comment.

Advocate for smart bitcoin regulation in Washington, DC through a three-part strategy combining government relations, media education and grassroots outreach.

I remember that quote standing out a few weeks ago but 18 months seems like a reasonable time frame for regulators to make rules on it.

Boring suggested that she first approached the Bitcoin Foundation with her proposal for the CDC, and that she was encouraged to pursue the project independently.

Didn't know that part so TBF said build it and keep it separate.

I'm sorry if a couple of people, based on those words...

You misquoted me completely.

You presented those sentences as if all four of them related to her choice of clothing. Only the last two of those sentences were related at all, and they were, in fact, entirely accurate. Ask any business professional, whether male or female, what they would think of a lobbyist woman showing off cleavage or a lobbyist man showing off chest hair. You will find the same answer, which was my exact response, in both cases.

It is a sign that the person is either ignorant toward the proper dress code for that position, or they know about the code and choose to ignore it on purpose in order to draw attention. Given the fact that Boring is very experienced in this field, the only possible conclusion is the second one. This is a form of manipulation and absolutely indicates the person to be less trustworthy than if they made the proper choice.

You are embarrassing to this entire board, making it look as though bitcoiners (1) don't know about professional dress codes and (2) are willing to have a double-standard in favor of women "wearing whatever they like wherever they like, even a bikini in Congress". You are disgusting, and a dishonest fool. Now, go misquote me on that, too.
