Sounds like someone's trying to up their post count. Working on a scam?

damn, you found me out. Are you giving out loans by chance?



If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

Defamation through association. That's an effective way to kill an idea.

Mark my words, that's how special interest's will attack decentralized crypto-currency.

Agreed. It happened before. The thing is, the public has learned by now to some extent, and has grown rather cynical (well, apathetic, too) - so defamation might not be as effective as before.

Also, please cast your vote on a related topic in https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=90822.0

My outlook has become very jaded, as every time I've come to expect some higher cognitive behavior from "the public" they always disappoint whenever an idea of such scale is presented.

The macro scale of Bitcoin is simply too extreme for most people to accept.

As with all things, time will tell.

Alright, what is the best way for bitcoin users to defuse defamation attacks?  I'd say the best way is by using btc, and being outspoken about it. Also, I find the Wiki PR page rather sensible - https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Public_relations

I wish I had a more positive outlook, and I hope the community can come up with interesting ways like starting crowd-funding for charities and associating Bitcoin with the ability for people to collectively achieve great goals etc...

But personally, I'm planning for a worst case scenario.

My two bit-cents:

The beauty is that bitcoin doesn't really have to gain any more acceptance in order for it to be useful. As long as it maintains a steady value I could care less what the "masses" think or if they ever adopt it. I can use it as a "store of value" and "offshore bank account" in its current state. This is similar to gold and silver - the masses don't own it, don't spend it, and don't have a clue of its value. Meanwhile, gold and silver still shine and deliver.

Interesting point. Perhaps it's best if it never gets "big"...?

Make it technically painful to use bicoins and financially painful to hold them.

Quiet a few options, but fortunately, we aren't under complete tyranny (yet) and taking actions to "destroy bitcoin" would likely be of little benefit to whomever would try.
