Dear miners,

Thank you for adding hashes at such a ridiculous speed
and processing 12.5 blocks per hour.  You're solving
the complaint that it takes too long for payments to go through. 
Keep it up.
It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

I remember a few weeks ago the queue was backlogged over 1000 transactions and it took 3 days to get some of my payments and transactions though.

Dear other miners,
Thanks for driving up the difficulty and taking those Bitcoins which are rightfully mine.

Sincerely,

It has less to do with rushing miners, and more with 0.3.21 version which restricted sending free transactions. Unless you modify the code or use older version (and then you'll still have problems with nodes refusing to relay them), you cannot send a series of spam transaction which were frequent a few weeks ago. Also, the Faucet and pools went to sendmany transaction which significantly reduce the network burden.

This is a joke, right? It is just as valid to say that you are driving up the difficulty for others and taking bitcoins that are rightfully theirs.

Wow, 1000 posts and you still cant spot saracsm. What a way to waste your 1000th post, you could have included a balloon and some cake clip-art.

On topic, go miners go!
