Who would have the coins and desire to buy multiple accounts here to put out a message?  Wink

Obviously don't assume that the user who emailed me is still the original owner of that account...

This is what I and many others received (thought I imagine the price is different for everyone):

Hi,

I want to buy your account. I asked one of staffs of this forum, he answered it's not against the rules. I can prove it, if you want. Are you interested? It's easy money. We can do it by a third person's help.

Is 0.25 BTC for an account too cheap?

Haha, well it is MY account after all, I imagine more prominent or senior account owners are being offered more.

But, market prices aside, I wonder how long this has been going on. It certainly would explain sudden mass postings of totally fabricated FUD that seem to come up every time there is positive news....

Buying/selling accounts isn't against the rules but unsolicited PM spam is. You can report these type of messages and they'll get dealt with pretty fast.

Oh I did report them.

I just think that everyone should be aware that this is going on and have their own opinion about how many senior accounts may have actually been bought and are currently being put to use in a coordinated propaganda effort.

And like I said, who would have the coin and time to do this?

You can report these type of PMs as unsolicited spam and they'll get dealt with pretty fast.

Most people are aware that accounts can be bought/sold and that's one of the reasons they're allowed so people know it goes on. How do you know they're to be used for 'propaganda' purposes though? You'd be better off just creating a new account for that. Accounts are usually purchased for sig campaigns.

No, you would certainly NOT be better off creating new accounts. Can you not understand that posts by a senior member, who may be known by many users, carry more weight and generate more views than someone who registered 2 minutes ago?

Sig campaigns? HAhaaaaaa you really believe someone is mass buying shill accounts at .25 bitcoin each for a sig campaign.  Smiley that's cute.

Would love if there was some indicator....

Maybe "time since last password change" or something.

Or a history of IP geo location for accounts.

Haha, you really believe someone is buying accounts for propaganda purposes? Now that really is cute and a little extreme. Can you provide evidence of how he is trying to mass buy accounts and for propaganda purposes? I dont think you're really thinking this through. So you really think people go around throwing money away to buy accounts for this purpose when there's a good chance they'll be banned? No. Sure, higher ranked accounts carry a little more weight but you can do more damage with an army of newb accounts you can quickly create for free. Unlikely people will want to risk their money this way. And many people do buy several accounts for sig campaigns as you can or could make your money back in less than a month. This practice of trying to buy accounts is common and I've seen it happen several times and many have been banned for sending the unsolicited messages.

Saying things like that leads me to believe that you're pretty paranoid and irrationally jumping to conspiracies here and are incapable of looking at this from any other angle. How has this thread been 'quickly attacked' exactly?

People have a whole range of uses of accounts and there is a clear market..

Accounts here actually seem to be a better investment than most the scammy dice sites and HYIPs... the price in $ has been increasing with them and they by their nature increase in value..

You'd be basically selling your identity if you sold your account. And you (personally) would be socially responsible for how the account was used after you sold it, since people would think that it was you.

But that account is anonymous.

Very strange this isn't against the rules, how does the website benefit from not banning this? Surely it damages the sites credibility as it will lead to even more fud.  Why bother have the new member posting rules if the site owners are not concerned about credibility of content?
