Please read this entire thread to the bottom. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Lately, the hard work we have put in at the Bitcoin Magazine has caused some unwanted delays. Since I am personally obsessed with quality and think products like “Coineer” are as bad as what my grandma would make in Microsoft Publisher, it is difficult for me to accept poor quality in my own products.

This is why I stand out in the myriad of poor quality sites and services in Bitcoin. Although DialCoin for example was expensive (SMS fees make it prohibitive to run such a business unless your customers are desperate for coins, wish to retain their anonymity, or are using credit rollovers.), the website design was headed by me. Everything down to the character's name “Selly” was a brainchild of mine. I am proud of the design and form of DialCoin.com, and even if it were to close someday, I would never forget how hard I worked to bring it up with my hard working team.

Now aside from a handheld Bitcoin device that will bring Bitcoin to everyone's pockets, a social network that will revolutionize the way people interact and treat the internet, and a few other projects of less importance, I also founded the Bitcoin Magazine (which is actually a spinoff from BitTalk.TV, which started out as a half-serious trollfest and ended up proving to be moderately successful with more views than most of Bruce's videos at the time).

Since I founded the DCAO, we've brought in over 50 long term members that have acted as a support group and consist of some of the strongest and most adamant names in Bitcoin. It's a mixed lot, but all of them have one thing in common-- they understand that I enjoy trolling, although some obviously don't approve because they think I should just “grow up”. This group has acted as a sort of support group for someone like myself whom has had little education in economics or politics. These past 8 months have really opened by eyes to the misconceptions people have about Bitcoin, allowed me to feel out my surroundings, but most important of all -- to actually understand the reason why Bitcoin is important for all of us.

When I first started the Bitcoin Magazine, I was thinking about entertainment over education to be honest, and I was planning on providing comics, satire, and something light hearted to keep the community from killing itself. That is until we started getting contacted by major media outlets, freedom organizations asking for 100s of bulk copies for redistribution, etc. It hit me like a ton of bricks that I had just taken a front seat to one of the most important positions in the Bitcoin community-- managing the collective voice of Bitcoin for the outside world.

I admit that the job of managing what would reflect on Bitcoin for better or worse seemed extremely daunting at first, but then something happened. Either aspergers cleared up (I'm actually at the average age where it would), or I did what I always do-- realized my potential and got serious about it. That's why we brought in some major writers, a new editorial board, professional illustrators (not cheap), and some people who knew better what they were doing than myself. Still, I have been told numerous times by multiple people in and around the magazine that skill can be lent, but vision and personality cannot, and for that reason, they would not want me to step down-- that they want my insights, obsession to details and quality, and overall comical attitude injected into a magazine to help lighten it up and make it readable for people of all ages.

I have done a lot of soul searching and seeking out my philosophy, and although I'm still building my opinions of the world, I think what Bitcoin needs most desperately above all else is a neutral voice that is loud. Even when the news doesn't favor Bitcoin, I will publish it, because truth promotes correction. And when the news does favor Bitcoin, it is best that it is delivered in a quality manner that is not treated like a joke. This is something we are fully prepared to do.

On the topic of trolling, I have logged 50+ days of activity on the forums, and a great number of my posts have been egoistical, rude, vulgar, abusive, aggressive, and downright vile. While some would see this as a sign that I have lost my mind, those closest to me know the secret – it's how I get my energy (silly, ey?).

My sadistic and dark humor (Robot Chicken, FilmCow, David Firth, etc) is unique, misunderstood, and most certainly immature, but it has always served to fuel truer intentions and good ideas.

When I first came to the forums, I was wide-eyed, humble, helpful and polite, but was met with harsh trolling, brutal ignorance, and constant misjudgments (read: BitMole vs. KeyserSoze). This and being labeled a scammer merely for defending myself led me to believe that the very forums of Bitcointalk.org were essentially a joke, and deserved anything it gets.

This harsh mentality has changed little by little the more successful I became in the community and the more important my projects became (arguably, this could also be coincidence and just that the aspergers is clearing up at my age). My mother used to tell me “You are not ready/mature enough for _____”, and I would always mouth back “I need to have ____ before I can be ready/mature enough for it.”. I have no method to measure how many others share this feeling, but I believe wholeheartedly that my personality changes with responsibilities.

With the professional responsibility of keeping a community happy, providing a professional and high quality product, and defending the company, this project has already had what feels like a lifetime of experience plunged into it in the mere 3 months we have been working on it. We've had harsh disagreements, hard lessons, but also huge insights and great support.

When I wake up these days, I look in the mirror and I don't see a troll and a goofball anymore – I see a future political activist that has been craving since birth to have something to sink his teeth into, and I finally believe I understand Bitcoin enough to know my place. I will not stop my development of other projects, management of other businesses, nor hobbies in or outside Korea, but I do take the long term success of the Bitcoin Magazine to heart and would soon rather suicide than let it fail.

There is an issue of my activities recently, such as announcing the support of a young model in South Korea whom certain parties seem to feel is inappropriate (actually, investors have flat out said it). I am not sure if I care much personally about what people think of my activities or intentions (certainly don't care what SA goons, especially Buttcoin.org, which is planning on writing up a Bruce Wagner style slanderous exposé  trying to convince anyone who will listen that teaching a 17 year old model about bitcoin somehow means I am a pedophile), but I am starting to grasp that it's time to turn the trolling off and get more serious on my public image.

It has been a very fun run, lots of juice scandals, nerd gossip, name calling, and even the SA trolls have provided me with some epic laughs, but I think for the betterment of my future, the magazine's future, and Bitcoin's future, I will be retiring as forum troll.

From now on if anyone has a comment about me, I'm going to let the community do what they do best – speculate, and let the trolls do what they do best – fabricate. This will be hard for me since I typically can't resist snarkily tearing other trolls apart for spreading FUD, but my new-found philosophy has opened my eyes widely to a much larger troll in our midst, and every able body should be on board.

Here's to a new Matthew N. Wright on the forums, an absolute predictable barrage of baseless slander from anti-Bitcoin SA goons regarding this post (which will never be met with any response unless police are involved, with which lawsuits will be the response), and a ridiculously successful Bitcoin Magazine (and other projects) that will piss them the fuck off. Wink

Sincerely strapped in for the rest of my life,

Moi.

I couldn't do it.  Sorry.

Patiently waiting for the magazine.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

I don't want to get a job,

every time I get high...

No, really, umm, it's cool to mature past the role of forum troll, although, in fairness you were pretty damn good at it, and I enjoyed the spirit of your posts for exactly what they were; sagacious grist for the fun-pokery mill.

That being said- somebody thought you were a pedo for your efforts to promote Yoon? Despite the obvious mis-characterization of a 17 year old, those folks probably have some serious issues they need to confront long before they rip on you for what was very clearly just another angle to take bitcoin out into the world. Like maybe they should never be allowed to bablysit anybody under the age of 45, and the whole family needs to learn about the forbidden swimming suit zones if they see something evil in what you were up to. Not many of the sanctimonious folks here who claim to be all pro-bitcoin and willing to do anything to help facilitate world-wide acceptance would think of embracing a tech-savvy demographic like K-Pop glamor girls, and then actually bringing them into the fold as full-fledged citizens of this strange world. I salute your outside the box thinking. Not only for the Yoon Episode, but for all the rest of the righteous clarity, intelligent wit, and sometimes impish cheek you bring to the discussion.

Matthew - great post my man.

What you describe about the change from troll to purpose-driven enthusiast is something I've witnessed in you as well and can verify it. You were someone who was not starry-eyed about Bitcoin in the least when you first stumbled upon it, and few people could tell if you actually even cared about the currency at all. This gave you a certain critical eye and objective understanding of the culture surrounding Bitcoin, and from this you've grown into a very respectable contributor to this wild project.

I've enjoyed our discussions and consider you one of the most valuable members of the community, for a number of reasons. I'm very glad you've come to see the tremendous importance of this project and I know the project is advanced by your efforts.

Now hurry the fuck up with the magazine because we want to read it!!!

Matthew,

I'd like to think of myself as an excellent judge of character, what with my background in social work/psychology and my experience as a counselor and therapist.  I also meticulously scrutinize the language that people use when they communicate as it is a direct reflection of their state of mind -- after all, people think with language, and if they don't make sense out loud or in print, chances are that they are similarly confused in their heads.

That being said, you DO stand out from everybody.  You have something special, and what's even more refreshing is that you know you have something special.  In my honest opinion (I hope everybody reads this, although I doubt any but a few will care) you are easily one of the most intelligent and thoughtful people in the Bitcoin community, and everybody could learn a thing or two from you. 

You WILL be successful.  Just be yourself, regardless of what persona you need to don to fulfill whatever responsibilities you currently have.  You are remorselessly you.  Few people truly realize that this and this alone is the key to success.

I sincerely wish you the best of luck...

...you can finish wiping your tears now.  Seriously, stop that.

Semi-factual, semi-paraphrased cliffnotes:

I value quality. Bitcoin Magazine has been delayed due to high values, and I do not apologize for it.

I am proud of my past creations, such as Dialcoin. While it may not be what everyone seeks, I feel pleased knowing how much careful effort I put in it. I feel a sense of calm knowing how well-constructed my creations are, even if they are not financial blockbusters.

The DCAO innovates, and has brought 50 long-term members on-board. They have greatly influenced and supported me. They have guided me along in understanding Bitcoin, the community, and my role in that community. They have helped me arrive to what I believe are more mature and thought-out beliefs regarding what this community is. In particular, while I was originally jaded by the community's hostile actions toward me, I have since come to believe there is much more productive and sincere activity going on behind the shit-flinging which I suppose dominates most Internet forums. While the occasional shit-flinging is an enjoyable, energizing activity for me, I want everyone to know that, within myself, I am more dedicated, sincerely excited about, and willing to work toward a stronger cryptocurrency, a better-informed and more open community, and efficient, helpful services.

I originally thought of Bitcoin Magazine as something much smaller than it has become. I have received contacts from multiple large organizations, both political and non-political in nature, seeking bulk orders of Bitcoin Magazine. I realize that my current goal in creating Bitcoin Magazine is not to provide some humor to the community, but to become the collective voice of Bitcoin for the outside world. In doing so, I realized the opportunity which was presented to me: I am able to greatly impact the future of Bitcoin. Upon this realization, I have taken Bitcoin Magazine much more seriously, and have spent increased time, effort, and money on getting Bitcoin Magazine to a level of quality I am pleased with.

I believe Bitcoin needs now, more than ever, a loud neutral voice to bridge gaps between those of strong opinions, and allow the curious to understand Bitcoin and the community better without being subjected to extreme, hostile, and unproductive arguments rather than thoughtful discussion. As well, truth corrects misguided action. We need as much truth as possible, and I will publish all which I am able which provides to a productive discussion on Bitcoin, its community, and its related services.

Bitcoin Magazine is my life (though I will not be abandoning my other projects), and I want everyone to know this. I believe in it so much, I pledge fully to make it succeed, and it will have great impact on the future of Bitcoin. I am so committed to this new life, where Bitcoin Magazine is greater than myself, that I retire my forum persona. I will no longer troll the forum. That is how seriously I take this responsibility, and the standards I demand of myself. I hope you will exceed my standards, and challenge me to rise higher. I issue this challenge in utter sincerity.

Glad to hear it (though I find it a little difficult to believe). Many of your posts are good, especially recently, but I've been annoyed at how frequently you post garbage.

Whenever I see your projects I still think of your initial ridiculous, self-important attempt to start a "Bitcoin Better Business Bureau" and your scamming incident (which was totally your fault and not just a misunderstanding). But my opinion of your projects has been improving recently as you've been acting more thoughtfully.

Good effort, Matthew. But your achilles heel is Atlas.

I'm not sure you'll be able to stay serious unless either Atlas is permabanned, or  you sign up with a second anonymous account just so you can continue to point out new Atlas accounts and positroll him.

I'd prefer the latter, tbh.

man you almost made me quit bitcoin, i hope you can keep it together and i hope the magazine succeeds for the good of bitcoin.

No, he's really not. If he was, he wouldn't get banned so often.

Matthew, I very much prefer this side of you. If you really do feel the need to troll, however, make another account for that trolling. By making it hard on yourself by having to constantly switch accounts, you'll soon get out of the habit of trolling.

This thread is half "We love you Matt" and Zen and the art of forum trolling.

I also want to look up look up LoupGaroux to see what level of vocabulary he reaches.
So I did. I did not think that it was so high that there are many people that wouldn't comprehend it. I'm no vocabulary expert and only read a small sample of his posts. Heck I even claim to speak Jenglish. Really just an excuse for my bad English, making my own words, and habitually not using grammar.

It's not how big it is but how you use it that counts.

And the same goes for vocabulary. It's why LoupGaroux screws his opposition so masterfully.

When I first read the OP I thought wow, 10/10 troll post! But what do I know :/

This is exactly what I thought (and may still think). What if the OP is a troll post, one that Matthew espouses how he's not going to troll anymore? In retrospect, he may be telling us that he's not going to troll any less.

Or, worse yet, he's going to continue to troll other places, but not on BitcoinTalk, for we're not good enough for his troll posts. If this is the case, then I hope that those over at SA tear him a new...

I manage a group of maintenance workers at Wally World (Wal-Mart).

Phil gave me a long apology about how he spends too long cleaning bathrooms for the third time. He told me he has finally improved.

I just wish he would just do and not care what I think.

I wish you would just release the magazine I paid for and stop telling me how great it's going to be.

Your customers come first. Not your talent. Not your magazine but the people you're serving. Without them, you have nothing unless you are doing charity (you aren't). You have costs and relationships to pay and maintain.

You aren't going to stay in business with this crap, Matthew. Get your shit together.

The Communists say, equal labour entitles man to equal enjoyment. No, equal labour does not entitle you to it, but equal enjoyment alone entitles you to equal enjoyment. Enjoy, then you are entitled to enjoyment. But, if you have laboured and let the enjoyment be taken from you, then – ‘it serves you right.’ If you take the enjoyment, it is your right.

What, no more fixations on masturbating furries/muppets? 

Good! Thumbs up!   

I like things like Robot Chicken but that type of thing always seemed out of place here and took away from what you seem to be trying to do with Bitcoin.

It was the reason I was never interested in getting a copy of your Bitcoin magazine. ( that and the fact that by the time a magazine, any magazine,
comes out all the news in it is usually old. But that is just me. It is perhaps targeted to a different demographic. )

Although some of your humor on these forums had a point to it, unlike Bruno's, it won't be missed too much by me if it means a more professional
attitude from you.   

Btw, you could've probably said what you said in your letter in a lot fewer words.
We don't need your life story; much of it is perhaps best kept between you, your therapist and your Matt/Atlas voodoo doll.    Wink

I give him a week before he cracks.

This. You'll have to let up just a bit Matthew.

One person can't make a decision about every design detail, that's why you hired some professional designers. That was a smart move.

Now you have to respect their decisions. I can assume that as chief editor, you're already exerting full editorial control of the content. A lot of the details (whether editorial or design) are just minutia and you must let go. Everyone will still love the magazine even if it isn't perfect (nothing is perfect!). But if you don't let it ship then we're guaranteed to hate it!

Forget about the models and everything else. Think about your team. The magazine needs nothing new right now. It needs to ship. The longer this goes, the more morale fades in the team. Eventually, the money will run out.

Write the letter from the editor, issue #1. Then listen to your team and let them finish.

Real artists ship.

The magazine is never going to be perfect. Just set a date like Ubuntu does and stick to it. If something isn't ready for inclusion by the deadline, leave it out. There will be other issues to follow, I hope. Actually, I'd just be happy with the initial issue since that's all I sent BTC for.

I also want to look up look up LoupGaroux to see what level of vocabulary he reaches.

It's not how big it is but how you use it that counts.

And the same goes for vocabulary. It's why LoupGaroux screws his opposition so masterfully.

By level I did not meen size of words. I ment skill level. He is really really good. Just the way he was being spoken of, I expected more.

So if you was twenty going with a seventeen year old would not be frowned upon.  Regarding the laws of pornography I'm not sure probably eighteen tho probably should be twenty-one as should be prostitutes.

Depends on the state. In some places, sex between 16y/o & 18 y/o is fine, most states 15y/o with 15y/o is statutory rape. Sometimes, 17y/o with 65y/o is fine so long as it isn't recorded. I'm not up-to-date on the laws though, so maybe some of those examples are no longer true.

This is why it's so difficult. I'm not familiar with any of the accusations or assertions against you. But cross culture laws and customs can get in the way. What is illegal here might not be illegal there. Here you have to be 21 to drink, many other countries laugh at that.

But what I read from your post, you just tried to help a 17 year old model with no sexual intent. 17 is an odd age here, depends on lots of circumstances. Are they emancipated? and many other factors. Not being familiar with all the laws in other countries, I couldn't say in your case. But one might imagine 17 being legal in many other countries. Wonder how our Child Labor Laws compare with China's? Probably won't hear much complaining about that though.


But why even bring it up again, unless it is an issue.

On the Magazine, just publish.

Have you a printer yet?  Who is it?  Would a print on demand publisher work for you? A POD Publisher would take a cut but you might get a larger subscription base. BTC and other fiat.

Good Luck.

Since there seems to be a few recurring misconceptions floating around, I'll try to shed some more light on them if I can:

  • I believe the video was recorded by an amateur photographer friend of hers.
  • Cultural differences aside, the video is neither sexual nor pornographic in nature. I definitely appreciate the concerns of her well-being by the community and encourage more involvement with her career, but ultimately I fail to see any endangerment of any sort. I feel this is mostly a non-issue that has been inflated with FUD by those of certain religious affiliations as there is obviously no legal issue with the content in question in Korea or anywhere else to the best of my knowledge. For those who would consider a 17 year old girl wearing a shirt and panties on a 12 second video to be shocking, I fear a heart-attack is imminent upon learning of the following internationally publicized activity: Miley Cyrus's 9-year-old sister launching a lingerie line for kids.
  • I can obviously contact her myself and advise her against doing videos of this nature in the future based on concerns raised by the community, but it is of course better if the community voices this opinion to her uploaded video page directly. I believe her parents are her acting managers at this moment so it is probably an issue best discussed with them until she is 18.
  • I haven't worked in education since 2010. I only work in Bitcoin now and I've never been happier.  Cheesy

Correction: Upon receiving a Facebook update today it is apparent that she took the video at the same studio she took her new set of photos. Whomever had a problem with the video is certainly going to have a problem with her newest album updates:

http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.219016361532929.35863.214497208651511&type=1
http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.219039104863988.35873.214497208651511&type=1

For those interested in voicing their opinions of what is appropriate/inappropriate for her, I again recommend posting directly on the album pages, on each photo, or sending a message through Facebook. This way it is in clear view of:

  • her parents
  • her agent
  • her photographers

Matthew,

I'd like to think of myself as an excellent judge of character, what with my background in social work/psychology and my experience as a counselor and therapist.  I also meticulously scrutinize the language that people use when they communicate as it is a direct reflection of their state of mind -- after all, people think with language, and if they don't make sense out loud or in print, chances are that they are similarly confused in their heads.

That being said, you DO stand out from everybody.  You have something special, and what's even more refreshing is that you know you have something special.  In my honest opinion (I hope everybody reads this, although I doubt any but a few will care) you are easily one of the most intelligent and thoughtful people in the Bitcoin community, and everybody could learn a thing or two from you. 

You WILL be successful.  Just be yourself, regardless of what persona you need to don to fulfill whatever responsibilities you currently have.  You are remorselessly you.  Few people truly realize that this and this alone is the key to success.

I sincerely wish you the best of luck...

...you can finish wiping your tears ass now.  Seriously, stop that.

Fixed for you!  Grin

When I first saw this image the other day, I didn't get its implications, for I thought the guy was a comedian like Will Ferrell or somebody else. It wasn't until I read the word pedo in the quoted text above that made me recall who he is. I remember seeing the episode of that one dude that got caught a second time. I also remember a preacher and a magazine publisher--yes, a magazine publisher once got to lay down in the grass on one episode.

You might be a pedophile if...You digitally manipulate those below the age of consent.


I believe you are in need of some Dao De Jing Matt:

Chapter 63

Do things noncoercively (wuwei),
Be non-interfering in going about your business (wushi),
And savor the flavor in the unadulterated in what you eat.

Treat the small as great and the few as many.

Requite enmity with character (de).

Take account of the difficult while it is still easy,
and deal with the large while it is still tiny.
The most difficult things in life originate with the easy,
And the largest issues originate with the tiny.

Thus it is because the sages never try to do great things
That they are indeed able to be great.

One who makes promises lightly is sure to have little credibility;
One who finds everything easy is certain to have lots of difficulties.

Thus, it is because even the sages pay careful attention to such things
That they are always free of difficulties.

-A Philosophical Translation of the Dao De Jing; Translated by Ames and Hall

For Bitcoin to be a true global currency the value of BTC needs always to rise.
If BTC became the global currency & money supply = 100 Trillion then ⊅1.00 BTC = $4,761,904.76.

Chapter 63

Do things noncoercively (wuwei),
Be non-interfering in going about your business (wushi),
And savor the flavor in the unadulterated in what you eat.

Treat the small as great and the few as many.

Requite enmity with character (de).

Take account of the difficult while it is still easy,
and deal with the large while it is still tiny.
The most difficult things in life originate with the easy,
And the largest issues originate with the tiny.

Thus it is because the sages never try to do great things
That they are indeed able to be great.

One who makes promises lightly is sure to have little credibility;
One who finds everything easy is certain to have lots of difficulties.

Thus, it is because even the sages pay careful attention to such things
That they are always free of difficulties.

-A Philosophical Translation of the Dao De Jing; Translated by Ames and Hall

Ha haha..   Toaism..

I think this magazine is Wu wei wu actually..

Matthew,

I'd like to think of myself as an excellent judge of character, what with my background in social work/psychology and my experience as a counselor and therapist.  I also meticulously scrutinize the language that people use when they communicate as it is a direct reflection of their state of mind -- after all, people think with language, and if they don't make sense out loud or in print, chances are that they are similarly confused in their heads.

That being said, you DO stand out from everybody.  You have something special, and what's even more refreshing is that you know you have something special.  In my honest opinion (I hope everybody reads this, although I doubt any but a few will care) you are easily one of the most intelligent and thoughtful people in the Bitcoin community, and everybody could learn a thing or two from you. 

You WILL be successful.  Just be yourself, regardless of what persona you need to don to fulfill whatever responsibilities you currently have.  You are remorselessly you.  Few people truly realize that this and this alone is the key to success.

I sincerely wish you the best of luck...

...you can finish wiping your tears ass now.  Seriously, stop that.

Fixed for you!  Grin

Wait... You psycho-analyze the written word?

So 'they' are out there. The colour of phrases help to determine everything. How do you determine if the words have been edited, corrected, etc...?  2$ for your thoughts.

I tend to do so as well, although not actively. Obviously you can't determine whether something has been changed unless you see the change happen, but I tend to build a profile and a mental picture of persons based on their posts.

Please read this entire thread to the bottom. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Ever since I've first read those words, I felt something wasn't right.

And why did he stop posting on post number 4111?

17 is underage in the US? The US sucks.
Depends on the state. In some places, sex between 16y/o & 18 y/o is fine, most states 15y/o with 15y/o is statutory rape. Sometimes, 17y/o with 65y/o is fine so long as it isn't recorded. I'm not up-to-date on the laws though, so maybe some of those examples are no longer true.

A lot of the states changed this to 18 even with a parents permission after the fear of polygamy in a few of the Western and Southern states.

I find it hilarious that the United Kingdom has an equation for the etiquette on robbing the cradle.

Introducing constraints to the economy only serves to limit what can be economical.

trying to convince anyone who will listen that teaching a 17 year old model about bitcoin somehow means I am a pedophile
Is it normal that you as a teacher, film underage students in their underwear and publish this online ?

Since there seems to be a few recurring misconceptions floating around, I'll try to shed some more light on them if I can:

  • I believe the video was recorded by an amateur photographer friend of hers.
  • Cultural differences aside, the video is neither sexual nor pornographic in nature. I definitely appreciate the concerns of her well-being by the community and encourage more involvement with her career, but ultimately I fail to see any endangerment of any sort. I feel this is mostly a non-issue that has been inflated with FUD by those of certain religious affiliations as there is obviously no legal issue with the content in question in Korea or anywhere else to the best of my knowledge. For those who would consider a 17 year old girl wearing a shirt and panties on a 12 second video to be shocking, I fear a heart-attack is imminent upon learning of the following internationally publicized activity: Miley Cyrus's 9-year-old sister launching a lingerie line for kids.
  • I can obviously contact her myself and advise her against doing videos of this nature in the future based on concerns raised by the community, but it is of course better if the community voices this opinion to her uploaded video page directly. I believe her parents are her acting managers at this moment so it is probably an issue best discussed with them until she is 18.
  • I haven't worked in education since 2010. I only work in Bitcoin now and I've never been happier.  Cheesy

You. Are. A. Pedophile.

Legends tell of musclebeasts once roaming the cosmos that were so enormous, they could destroy entire planets with but a twitch of any anatomical feature. Are the legends true?

You hope so.

Wow. Didn't we already debate this particular line of trash thinking to death? Matthew may be a lot of things to a lot of different people, but I think is is reasonable to consider that particular slander to have been addressed in full, and dismissed.
