Speaking of evangelism, has anyone gathered a collection of tips on how it should and shouldn't be done? That might be very useful. I did a quick search, but I couldn't find much more than "tell them how awesome it is and include a link to weusecoins".

See https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Public_relations

That's a great page.  I hadn't seen it before.


Reading the other forum's topics made me sad.  These girls are fearful of Bitcoin for the exact reasons why it is awesome -- no government, no centralization, open source, virtually no trust.  Sad

I reckon! It's like Bitcoin's got its own Wikipedia, but better. Excuse me while I fire my secretary.


He was talking about the page, not about the wiki...

That's a nice reference. I'll have to remember to post that in the threads where people post their emails, cause pretty much every one I have seen posted here is horrible and probably does more harm than good.

When talking to adult entertainers about Bitcoin, and they ask "how can I spend these things?",  please remember to mention they can pay their rent with Bitcoin (if they live in Vegas).

I mean, that's awesome, but they'd probably have to move right?

Not necessarily. I've hear that a lot of entertainers fly into Vegas like cattle on a train every Friday. Could be a way to pay for a more established or permanent place of stay. I unno... just sayin..

Ugh.  Since I took the time to read through most of those, I thought I'd post a tl;dr.

Whoever posted these threads is an idiot.  There's really just not any other way of putting it.  On the one forum, he (most likely a he) seems to have done a sloppy job of pretending to be female, before doing an absolutely horrible job of promoting his site and Bitcoins, not only confusing anyone who might have been interested but also wasting everyone's time trying to engage a few people who were obviously not interested, and were more than likely tied to competitor services.

I'll just make a little bullet list of what he did wrong, in semi-chronological order:

  • Lied
  • Exaggerated the benefits of Bitcoin
  • Used poor grammar/spelling
  • Failed to explain what Bitcoins are and how they work
  • Failed to differentiate his site/service from Bitcoin itself
  • Failed to highlight the pros and cons of his service
  • Posted too often / often making multiple posts in a row
  • Demonstrated limited understanding of the target market
  • Was overly defensive
  • Was sarcastic
  • Resorted to insults

And that was just the first thread.  The second seemed to be doing better, until people from the first thread showed up and things similarly went downhill.

On the bright side, however...

So if the value of bitcoins varies like gold...

... then one day a bitcoin might cover the cost of a double anal fisting with backflips show, and only enough to cover the cost of a 2 second nipple flash the next day.

At least someone gets it.
