I'm all in favor of small groups spinning off the bitcoin code. There are parts of the user spectrum that don't need to be in the main branch. The very light side (small towns) and the very dark side (criminal organizations.)
They should both develop their own branches.
we can tell other people what they should and shouldn't be doing as much as we want .... doesn't make a damn bit of difference in my experience.
Thank you, Captain Obvious.
We should shut down the forum immediately. That's another "should". :-)
The OP was asking about his goal. I'm guessing he wants to implement a variation of BTC to minimize or to eliminate the chaos of an exchange. If TPB was the only avenue for bit torrent, where would the protocol be?
