usually accs created with coinnames are "new accs" of actualy coin owners.

I have no idea what your source of data there is for that but in this case I can assure you there are all kind of trolls and FUDsters creating accounts with all sorts of names that have nothing to do with Monero.

We've seen the pro-Monero troll strategy before (in July I think) where people create new accounts and post in support of Monero instead of against it. They apparently are trying to do so in such an obnoxious and spamy ay that it causes a backlash against Monero. At least that is my guess, because I don't really know. (As I said, the other highly plausible explanation is mental illness.)

The sad fact is this forum site is so infested with trolls and FUDsters that you really can't believe anything people say unless you know them personally. The rest are best ignored.

No casual Attacker could exploit Monero. We have already seen Monero's developers neatly push a fix to the likely nation state sponsored attempt at corrupting the chain.

This clearly came from sophisticated party with intimate knowledge of the monero internals, not a script kiddie attacker.  These trolls Can try and incite attacks towards XMR from Candiates who have previously tried to Damage shitcoins like auroracoin, infinitecoin etcetera but the fact is we are Dealing with a completely different beast here not a simple bitcoin copy - this is a project which has been Developed by crytographers and audited by the likes of gmaxwell and peter Todd. Lame attempts at 51% attacks or "Timewarps" will be futile here so  it is a waste of time for anyone to try and lure and attack in.

As long as we choose to support OSS privacy enhancing technology such as Monero and elect to choose GNU/Linux as our primary Desktop operating systems, escaping the Opressive Handcuffs of Microsoft Windows Vista, Apple iOS DRM infested and spyware/malware Ridden bugged OS we will make for extremely hard group to target. It really is a simple case of throwing out our Windows/ Apple Locked down proprietary, corporate controlled and easily attackable via Malware desktops, and replacing with a Free Libre Open Source Operating Software system such as  GNU/Linux 64bit or 32bit PAE kernel in conjuction with the Monero Daemon to enable financial freedom and complete privacy for all.

Yah the correct strategy is

* Go to every redditt thread that talks about anonymity and crap about Monero. Because you know Monero invented CryptoNote and is fair.
* Piss people off by calling them premine scam repeatdly when the whole world knew about the premine scam.
* Argue with everyone in their threads that Monero is superior.
* Impose BTC support on everyone and their brother for Monero.
* Start calling CryptoNote whitepaper as Monero whitepaper.
* Have a team of core faggots faggoting about Monero everywhere they could think of.
* Call the most competitive CN altcoin a scam and call its developer a botnet operator. Create a special thread to make sure that the one legit CN competition gets swished away with the other coin mill coins. If all else fails make sure that you invoke mining controversy because you know Monero doesnt have any mining blemishes.
* Don't even mention BBR anywhere because you know people might start looking at it as the superior technical implementation of CryptoNote probably from one of the original CN good guys who didn't want any part of anything controversial.
* Have a bunch of sock puppets trolling Poloniex 24x7 pimping monero.
* Make sure an angel investor is baptizing everyone into Monero as soon as he meets them and more importantly share it with everyone here to make sure they know of the schedule and meetings.
* Spam a lot of threads on Altcoin section because you know it is important to convert everyone into Monero.

If all else fails, play victim of FUD.

Bunch of Legendary fags. This is why I got out of Monero. Yah I am ok to miss the Millionaire boat. You fags can go fuck each other all day long.

To give you some input on this from the Monero core team's perspective: we try keep the SNR in the Bitcointalk ANN thread as high as possible, and #monero-dev on Freenode has a pretty high SNR as well.

We do not sanction or control any of these other threads. In due time we will likely stop posting anything on Bitcointalk related to Monero apart from announcements in the ANN thread.

To all the idiots saying I'm a troll, I'm both amazed and shocked by your behavior. If everyone who's more pro-Monero than yourself is a troll and this is honestly your opinion, I'm sure that you're just in for the short term and don't realize the *long-term potential* of the coin. I stand up for Monero because I know that it's THE coin with the single best future, on top of that the only one that is - as a matter of fact - challenging Bitcoin at this very moment. True Monero supporters would agree on that without a doubt.


If he has actually found an exploit of significant potential harm (extremely unlikely) I say go and post it. If it can help improve Monero even more I'm all for it. But if so privately send it to the team and don't harm XMR.


Wait a second, a few post ago you were claiming that it was impossible that bcx could do it, now you are saying maybe he can. You are one confused individual.

You can post using your main account to put your message across BCX, I've said it earlier Sir.

I firmly believe you won't and can't do anything against Monero - but for the extremely unlikely case that you do in fact have found an exploit that could potentially harm XMR - then by all means please send it to the Monero team and don't attack the network live, I'd appreciate and expect this noble act of you.

It's so many levels of trolling here I don't even know where to begin. Trollception!

I think Monero (XMR) is very interesting.

Do you also feel this way, that there exist no weakness that can be exploited in Monero?


~BCX~

May i answer that?

It has a reason we hired Peter Todd to review the source, its undocumented and badly factored atm, there are also other people reviewing everything  - It would be plain arrogant to say that there may be no weaknesses, look what happened to openssl and there were tons of people and companies working on it...
It also has a reason why we point out its currently Alpha level software, to reach the same maturity as for example Bitcoin it will take us a while and a lot of work, that for sure.

there really is no point in making Monero look like weak alpha software. It is not weak, in fact it's very solid as it has proven for a long period of time.

the following nails what XMR really is; most certainly *not* alpha software like you suggest:

Monero is the first alt (okay some said LTC a year ago..) that functions as a hedge to Bitcoin.

[...]

This is very precious, to find an asset that has good positive EV and is a hedge. Everyone who has BTC does a pareto-improvement move by buying XMR, with 0.25%-5% of the holdings. This has nothing to do with taking a position, it is a slam dunk move if you invest professionally.

Yes, that is exactly what I am saying. Why would he make this thread otherwise? There's no money to be made making this thread. He's bluffing and I'm calling all day long and twice on Sunday.
