(I have the greatest respect for slush, but his hesitance to adopt a modern reward method has gone too far.)
I get that you dont like hoppable pools.
I get that it costs non hoppers money.
I get that you want to inform non hoppers
but what i do not get, is the anger over pool ops that CHOOSE to not change their reward method after they have heard all the arguments. Dont like the method of payout? get more from somewhere else, then go somewhere else. If enough people agree with you the pool dies, if they dont it wont. No reason to cry about it. SOme people are quite vicious. Look at a1bitcoin pool. He announced when he oppened that he knew about hopping, he knew his payout plan was hopable and he didnt care, he thought there was a market for prop pools, despite the hopability.
A few people werent dicks and just reminded him that it could be hopped. But a lot of people attacked him constantly over his choice of payout. It isnt like you are forced to mine the pool. He said he knew about hopping and he didnt care. It wont effect BTC, or you in any way what so ever, as long as you dont mine there.
For sure warn as many people as you can about hopping and the negatives from it for people who dont hop.
tell pool ops that their methods are hopable
BUT THEN VOTE WITH YOUR FEET
For a libertarian loving community there seems to be a plethora of people here who demand that everyone does everything the same way, even if they dont use their services. That is just fucking odd.
