Anybody on here also members of Overclockers.com or [H]? Do they have Bitcoin subforums yet? Those guys are big fans of crunching projects so it'd be good to have them on board.
overclockers.com hates bitcoin.
Why? Its been a while since I was active on there.
Not sure if there was a mixup or it's just two different sites that both "hate" bitcoins, but I found this at overclock.net forums-http://www.overclock.net/t/1104285/owai-why-is-bitcoin-discussion-not-allowed
A few reasons I know
1 Mining which involves profit and often recruiting to make it worth it.
2 It is not an internationally recognised currency
6.3. Currency: Only internationally recognized currency may be traded with. Any synthetic form such as 'BitCoin' is NOT recognized here and and not allowed here.http://www.overclock.net/marketplace...rules-wip.html
I know that is the marketplace rules but
These rules supersede all previously posted rules and are part of the Terms of Service of Overclock.net.
We also don't allow any hint of it.
Any posts referencing, hinting at etc should be reported
Any further questons should be directed to Chipp or The_Manual
Now we have that cleared up any further threads/posts by anyone will be punished
Of course that is all utterly ridiculous and stupid, but that is the reasoning they use.
