people seem to be fixated on the negative and like spreading fear or something.  How is this issue a huge problem?  I agree it could be an issue but that is something that has been addressed in the past.

Just remember "There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom" and that goes for adding decimal places if needed. 

I think everyone would love to have the problem of further divisibility, but it seems like quite a ways off.

Bitcoins are divisible to 0.00000001. don't worry about the scalability. It's a temporary thing.

 keep hearing people say that since bitcoins are divisible down to the eighth decimal place, we can afford losing bitcoins since the rest will grow in value.
