A lot of people are questioning Butterfly Labs' commitment to the Bitcoin community, and a lot of people are even coming right out and calling it a scam or a long con or the end of Bitcoin.

I cannot help but agree with these people.

Without a second vendor producing hardware just as efficient and cheap as Butterfly Labs claims their new Bitforce SC hardware is, I do not believe Butterfly Labs is being completely honest with potential customers.

Because of how Butterfly Labs has handled customer relations, Diablo Mining Company will never purchase Butterfly Labs hardware. We will pursue high-efficiency FPGA and ASIC hardware from alternate vendors only.

Diablo Mining Company will be the largest Bitcoin startup in the world, and we will do it without the help of Butterfly Labs.

So if butterfly labs does come with an asic and the difficulty gets 100x as high, diablo mining is out of the market until another company comes with an asic?

Your shareholders will be thrilled once again.

BTW, abusing your moderator status to sticky posts like these and other anti BFL trolling is just shameful.

I agree, this is an abuse of mod privileges.

Im not saying that Im a fan of the way *** does business, but there is a more diplomatic way to start a discussion.

This is definitely trolling.

Not at all. Butterfly Labs has yet to prove their BitForce SC products exist and are what they claim they are. Also, using Virtex 7 XC7V2000Ts over Spartan 6s could lead to a 23x increase of performance per chip, which really takes the wind out of BFL's ASICs.

28nm FPGAs may make it to the Bitcoin market before SCs ship in October 2013.

This plan was discussed with some of my largest shareholders. They agree.

Also, this post is not stickied.

See my previous response, 28nm FPGAs will take the wind out of BFL if they aren't careful.

I have not stickied this thread.

BFL has ultimately refused to speak with their investors (ie, everyone who preordered a BFL SC rig), so it is BFL that has refused to be diplomatic about this.

This thread is not stickied, although I'd like to see GLBSE companies stickied in the securities sub-forum.

I do not have a personal agenda or vendetta. The original Diablo Mining Company plan was to buy BFL hardware. It is BFL that talked themselves out of a sale with their unprofessional behavior, I have no control over what they do or do not do.

Now your lying about it being stickied in the first place?  Sheesh dude.

Now your justifying your position with more speculation about the state of the industry to justify your stance against ***'s speculation?

Lastly, you have accused others of trolling threads when it was mere discussion, now your clearly abusing your mod status and actually trolling.

Bad form.

DMC refusing to do business with BFL over poor customer service concerns is trolling? Back in my day we called that good business sense.
