Hey I was curious what do NastyFans member think of the fork and the Bitcoin XT stuff ?
Their double-spending policy is idiotic. Double-spending is a feature. They might as well accept "first seen" blocks too. That shows their lack of fundamental understanding of what Bitcoin is about.
The Bitcoin protocol is not about first come first serve. In fact Bitcoin should not give a damn about time. If sh*t like that ever makes it into official Bitcoin protocol, Bitcoin has no future.
Damn nonnakip, that sounds fucked up about double spending. Could you link a good, unbiased article or thread you've seen about it so I could read it? Every time I've looked at the "Bitcoin Discussion" section or other Bitcoin news sites recently all I've seen is people bitching about it both ways and in almost every thread/article. To be honest it just kind of made me avoid all those threads and not want to read about it, especially because there is so much FUD posted about both sides, conspiracies, and tons of shill/newbie accounts posting it. I know it basically stemmed from the block size debate and Gavin mentioning "Bitcoin XT", but I haven't been following it much.
I've been avoiding it like I do with anything that has the words "Bitcoin Foundation" in the title.
