Scammer tag? No. Those are reserved for people who make trade deals and back out of them. I don't think (s)he should be punished for failing to 51% an alt chain.

Lying Fuck tag? Maybe.

Well then you need to tag Coblee too because he knew all along.

WE will let him speak for himself. You've done enough talking for yourself and DannyMaddox.

We will wait for Coblee to address this himself.

No scammer tag, just boot him the fuck off for admitting to a DDoS.

BCX is not a scammer, because she did not seek to profit for her endeavor.  Plus she spend $400 on EC2 for our benefit.

BCX is a kind of a troll, but that's nothing unique and a part of what makes this place so damn entertaining.

BCX is a TRICKSTER.  She played a prank on us, but it was for our own good.  We learned many lessons.

Quote
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trickster#Archetype
The Trickster or Clown, is an example of a Jungian archetype. In modern literature the trickster survives as a character archetype, not necessarily supernatural or divine, sometimes no more than a stock character. Often too, the Trickster is distinct in a story by his acting as a sort of catalyst, in that his antics are the cause of other characters' discomfiture, but he himself is left untouched

BCX successfully discouraged the DDOS attacks plaguing LTC pools.  She was not the cause of them, but did foment a solution.

I couldn't have done it better myself, so hats off to her!

Let's promote her to moderator, so she can better humiliate the nasty rage machines demanding "zoh meh goad DOCKS KNAU!!!1."

That makes too much sense.  Why pay attention to so-called 'logic' and supposed 'definitions' when the important thing is that MY FEELINGS HAVE BEEN HURT!!!

You need to stop being so rational and engage in my ridiculous form of emotional claptrap.

From now on the definition of SCAMMER = anyone who does something I dislike, regardless of whether an actual scam is involved or not.

It's just like my special definition of SPAM = any content I dislike, whether it has anything to do with unsolicited commercial email or not.

Why would anyone really care if they get a scammer label when they have trashed their reputation so badly and what good would the label do?

tl;dr: Who gives a fuck!

You sure do spend a lot of energy, exclaiming your lack of fuck giving, for someone that spends a lot of energy exclaiming their lack of fuck giving.

I give a fuck because I'd like to use LTC pools without them being DDOSd.

I give a fuck because I'd like to use LTC transactions without them being forked with a 51% attack.

Copied from other thread...

I actually agree with this scammer idea.  Ordinarily, I would think that calling someone a scammer just because they made a threat and didn't follow through is a pretty ridiculous idea.  But, this was quite different.

I forget which moderator said it, but isn't it possible to be labeled a 'scammer' because you say things like "I traded with person x' when that didn't actually happen, especially when person y then trades with person x and loses money because they are under the impression that person x is legitimate?  The point is, a case like that has financial consequences.  BitcoinEXpress's little stunt also had financial consequences.

For example, I sold about 1300-1600 LTC at .005 BTC when I otherwise was planning on holding.  Why did I sell?  Well, just in case -- duh.  I was on vacation and I really didn't want to deal with the stress of watching over the markets the whole time.  In other words, BitcoinEXpress's little stunt had financial consequences on me personally.

There's a reason why it's illegal in some countries to do things like threaten to sue and then not follow through on it, make threats period, etc., and in this case I think that making a threat to attack an entire currency deserves punishment as it alters the nature of the way investors invest and the way that various pools and exchanges operate (e.g. BTC-e shut down LTC deposits/withdrawals for a little while). 

To make a similar analogy, let's say an announcement was made that terrorists were going to attack the NYSE and that this was made aware to the public -- except the head of the NYSE was in on it the whole time and didn't let anybody know, neither investors nor businesses.  Do you have any idea how pissed investors would be?  It would be talked about in the news for years.

I agree.  Mark BitcoinEXpress as a scammer and/or ban the fuck.

See notes above in red.

This thread is about the question of whether or not BCX Should get a SCAMMER tag?

I didn't realize that when I voted NO, BCX Should NOT get a SCAMMER tag

I didn't realize that when I explained why I voted NO, BCX Should NOT get a SCAMMER tag.

Thanks for keeping us on topic, sometimes I tend to digress and threadjack!

The red text was especially helpful, and your amateur pedantry quite impressive.

Judging how your signature indicates you were a victim of a scam IMO, you sure claim to think you know how to spot a scam huh? Good job man.

I hope you get your BTC back...I sincerely do.
