Just because you started a thread does not mean you should have control over when other people must stop talking in it. That's not how discussions work face to face and it's not how it ought to work here. JMHO.

Perhaps an exception should be made when a person posts a thread in an appropriate specific subforum about their own Bitcoin business, but certianly not for general discussion about things like 'bitcoin users should never call the police'.

Do not waste your time debating whether Bitcoin can work. It does work.

"Early adopters will profit" is not a sufficient condition to classify something as a pyramid or Ponzi scheme. If it was, Apple and Microsoft stock are Ponzi schemes.

There is no such thing as "market manipulation." There is only buying and selling.

The locked feature is great. In that case, that you're typing about, just shows he was wrong, got mad and locked it :/. Don't need to deal with it anymore. Problem solved.

Start a second thread with "continued" in the title and finish the discussion there...

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to Prayer Messages (PMs).

I don't care if people are able to lock their own threads.  I'd prefer that they weren't able to delete them though.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

They aren't.
