How did imsaguy get his VIP badge? I guess we will never get any admission of who paid for it. Who are the people who attained VIP status around the same time? Could it be that they are pirate-preachers?

And this again brings up the inconvenient matter of some operators of this forum profiting personally from this ponzi scheme, effectively aiding and abetting its proliferation by granting for an extended period of time (while invested themselves) most of the ponzi feeder fund threads a sticky status and then saying something like "I thought it is a ponzi but I risked my money and profited from it, but it is ok"




Yeah, those never should have been stickied, I never noticed it until someone brought it up in meta, cause I ignore most stickies. Wish someone had mentioned it earlier.

Holy shit, Vladimir, we agree on something! (I'm sure we agree on other things, but we have not discussed beer or space exploration on bitcointalk.)

Forum operators admit to reading pirate's (and other) PMs, have stickied threads, "suggested" creating PPTs (whatever side you fall on with gote or theymos on that one), and have recorded bets with Matthew.  It all creates a big stink.

When people talk about "the BTC community," which I deny truly exists, they are talking about this forum, and it's a snake pit.

Can't hurt to find out who are the snakes. I guess though that to most onlookers the answer is pretty obvious.

Now I know why you had so much bitcoins to "bet" me in my futures contract. You profited from other suckers in your PPT with pirate. LOL

Hi reeses, why did you delete almost all your posting history (including the posts where you supported pirateat40)? Your post count is now 17.

He just does. He used to keep his post count post count around 100, now he keeps it around 10 - 20. He claims no nefarious purpose, and he does delete everything eventually without favour. Plus he's quoted pretty often, so deleting all his posts including the quoted ones doesn't really serve a purpose.

He gave an explanation for it here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=104999.0

A related phenomenon is that the most ardent pro-pirate posters are now fairly quiet.

Those are the ones who most likely benefitted from the Ponzi scheme, by running a feeder fund or by simply being bribed. Everybody who has followed the relevant threads knows who they are.

As Donald's hair said, I just do it.  Part of it is getting tired of being involved in the anti-rational drama that peaked with the Ponzi threadstorm and part of it was noticing that I tend to ignore people with high post counts, especially over the 4k level (except Myrkul).  The fact that the forum is rigged and not at all representative of a) the bitcoin community in which I wish to participate or b) the camaraderie of the forum as little as a year ago has reduced its value do me.

We're also coming up on the high holidays, and it's a good time to change unhealthy habits, even if the reasons are secular.  I have a new Pilates instructor whom I need to see in seven hours, so I should get sleep soon. :-)

At any rate, everything I've said that caused any mayhem can be found via search, because it has been quoted, witnessed, or whatever.

Hardy. The evidence is quoted in other posts, he just likes deleting his posts.

I think being able to edit or delete a posting for a limited time after it was first posted makes sense. One hour would be my proposal.

But I doubt that this will be changed soon.

Go back and read my posts, you lazy, dishonest fuck.  Then choke on a bucket of cocks.

Quoted for evidence.

You are the one who is irrational and dramatic with your insults. The "bitcoin community in which [you] wish to participate" is being tainted by people like you.

Well given that you appear to be doing everything in your admittedly limited power to make going back and reading your posts as hard as possible, you'd excuse us for assuming that that is actually the last thing you want. So we'll just have to go by what we remember you saying.

If you cared enough to hold an honest and accurate opinion, you'd use the search box and type in "reeses" or do a site search on google.  However, informed opinions have little value here.


It's much more effective if you quote the whole thing.  I'll give you another chance.

All he has is vague speculation and assumption (and yes, a large dose of arrogance).  Trying to scare people into withdrawing is a pretty schoolyard tactic.  A lot of it doesnt even make sense, but I guess its only himself he's embarrassing so where's the harm.



Profiting since December myself.

Phantom profits. They're only there if you withdraw first at the others' expense. The clock is ticking..

Yes, yes... Keep lying to yourself. Maybe it will become true. Are you a politician, or?...
And my clocks don't tick.


if pirate is running a ponzi, and takes off, wouldn't that torpedo GPUmax, which looks like it could generate serious revenue once he opens it up to the public (exits beta) ?

Ponzi.

Ah, yes GPUmax is also a ponzi, the 'ol ponzi double down, the 'ol ponzi2

Ponzi. Ponzi.


Good news everyone! Pirate has 40k more BTC to launder!



So...

We went from "BTCST is a ponzi" to "BTCST uses funds to pay GPUMax users to launder coins"?

I mean, a ponzi and a money laundering business are two different things. Money laundering business IS very lucrative. What's the point for investors of withdrawing their money?

Deleting your bull shit? LOL! You are even a bigger joke than I thought you are.  Oh, and do not forget to choke on a bucket of cocks, you dishonest fuck. Wink
And while you are at it, wipe that shit of your nose. Your brown-nosing attempts at some of the biggest crooks in this forum where mediocre at best and almost entertaining.
LOL, deleting post... you are a loser LOL Smiley
Good riddance asshat!
