Enough of this already I think ... either we are at cross-purposes here or you are being a slippery bastard.
I have no desire to continue discussing with you. Have a good day.

Edit: Well, ok, I'll try. I am not a slippery bastard and I did not suggest you were a curmudgeon.

The OP may have referred to using the Bitcoin protocol itself, but to me it was clear that this is not an essential feature of the suggestion but rather a rough throwaway due to not yet refining it enough. I took the OP and built up on it, discussing ways it could work. At every point I was very clear to which vision of the original idea I am referring. In comment #16 I have already explained that I do not think the correct implementation of the idea is to use the Bitcoin protocol itself for anything, but you seemed to have ignored it.

My vision, once again, is that people who operate computers who do Bitcoin mining will also be able to devote compute resources elsewhere to reduce their risks. I'm sure this is what the OP intended too.

You may have interpreted the early ideas in this thread too literally, and been under the impression that any discussion made was about the implementation details suggested verbatim.

I'm not sure if we have an essential disagreement about anything. But I request that you take my comments at face value, rather than accusing them of "twisting the discussion" if they relate to a vision of the OP different from yours and resorting to name calling.
