Hmm, perhaps a few possibilities:

1. OP is high
2. OP is hacked, and hacker is posting on a different login session (unlikely)
3. OP is retarded, stupid, an idiot, or some combination of those
4. OP is pushing some kind of agenda (whose?)
5. OP is a scammer trying to raise his post count in order to become more legitimate to new users (also likely) before selling them stuff and running.
  5a. See how he never quotes anyone, so as to leave incriminating or opposing views out of his post history?
6. OP needs to get a life and come back in a few years

7. OP is using reverse psychology and is actually trying to pump up the price of BTC. 

it just hit $7

I couldn't possibly see how it worked. I think looked and realized it wasn't actually a currency, it was more of a commodity,

Bitcoin is a commodity that is perfectly suited for use as money. It is thus a commodity and a currency, to the extent it is used as such. The best monies, historically, have been commodities also (gold, etc). They are not mutually exclusive traits.


I dont expect bitcoin to even survive 6 months, at least not if you expect the coins to be worth anything or to be traded in any substantial amounts.

How much do you want to bet?  I will bet you $2,000 that Bitcoins will be worth more than $5 in six months. Put up or shut up.

Erik, this guy has no $2000. He is constantly asking for loans on IRC.
His nick there is "mysterybanshee". His OTC. IIRC he banned lately.
But at least he has a funny, albeit dated, webpage.

So why should we case, if this guy thinks that bitcoin will fail, and only because he got no loan?

Doomed and BOOM, $7. I like being doomed.

Seriously though, the OP is not quite up to speed. Reading quickly my eyes got caught in the rant about copy pasting Bitcoin addresses... stopped reading right there. Being involved with Bitcoin and somehow missing the significance of QR codes and URI links is simply retarded. It's a paradox of sorts, not possible unless you're really not aware of what is possible with Bitcoin already.

That wasn't him. His account was hacked  Roll Eyes
You think so?

Ugh...must be the language gap where I fail to be ironic. Or my total ignorance when it comes to emoticons? I thought when I used roll eye it would point that i certainly doubt that hacked account crap story he pulled out.

Sorry for misunderstanding, of course i don't think someone would crack or hijack his account just to write a bunch of useless posts based on his "analysis" in the OP which consists of not more than 3 not very complicated sentences, and without real intention to reveal why he thinks that bitcoin is in trouble, or doomed.

Sorry, sarcasm never translates well on the internet. Unfortunately, the use of sarcasm on the internet requires that you be painfully clear about your position, otherwise you risk misinterpretation. For those that are naturally sarcastic (like me), it's kind of hard to deal with.  Undecided

I am not using reverse psychology to try and increase the price, nor do I care much where the price goes in any case. I am simply trying to provide valuable advice to stop you people wasting your time, effort and money.

If you care so much  to provide someone here with advice (although no one has asked you, so it's not really polite of you), stop waisting our time writing useless posts just to bump the thread, and try to elaborate one of your sentences for a change, like the latter one:

...the project, community and general Eco-system is not organized or managed very well at all.

In a brief few points, just like rjk analyzed your condition, and after years of your vast experience with a project, how would you organize, or manage the project, the community and general system? Try to be more clear if you can, because your previous posts are just without any substance, and your advices are leading nowhere so far.

How can you say I'm not contributing anything useful?
From where I stand, I see my contribution far valuable to the topic than any of your posts right now, as I'm really trying to get why you think that bitcoin is doomed to fail, and why you say there's no organized community, and which eco-system is in non optimal state.

It is a fact that you haven't provided any of those answers, other than just dropped them here ad nauseam, and I've failed to comprehend your message, or as you call it advice.
Speaking of which, what was your advice that you are trying to give to this community?

Think a little and write it down, then post a reply. Take your time and don't rush, if you care for my advice, as rush is what has led you to 6 pages of bashing your nonsense.

Just so you know, your OP seems legit as a baseless rant.
Your title, on the other hand, make you look like a complete idiot.
