    Can we stop the OT attacks in this thread or can you two start a new thread somewhere? I am really interested in learning more about advanced checkpointing and its long term impact on feathercoin. Unfortunately, only the first couple posts are relevant to these issues and I do not want this thread to get locked because I want to hear more about the checkpoint controversy, possible centralization, possible vulnerabilities etc.

    Thanks 🙂

    Come on guys, suck it up and move on. For the record Kevlar’s trading advice is spot on. I use the same strategy and it’s served me well. Formulate your plan before hand and stick to it. Everytime I “think” I’m smarter than my plan and don’t obey it, I lose money.

    Oh, come on, wes. Underhanded attacks are really unnecessary, especially from someone who is supposed to be providing some leadership.

    The point of cryptocurrencies is that no one is to be trusted. Lack of trust is what everything is centered around. That’s why I take issue with ACP. It requires unverifiable trust, which is totally contrary to everything Bitcoin was built around.

    When it comes to my money and valuables, I don’t trust anyone else. I don’t trust you or Bushstar or Kevlar. I only trust me.

    I think what they don’t like is the fact that the trollbox is being brought to Feathercoin similar to how it is brought to other forums. People are not sure what to do since this is new to our community. People who know this is new are taking advantage of it. It is unfortunate.

    If we constantly talk about ftc in the trollbox it makes sense for it fall back here. Two way street.

    You can trust whoever you want, but advising other people to trust someone else with their valuables is incredibly bad advice. That’s how we got into the monetary position we’re in right now with central banks and bailouts and inflation. We’re trying to solve those problems, not recreate them with a different coat of paint.

    Taking pop shots at valuable members of this community is bad form. You may not like everyone here or trust them (I certainly have members I dislike), but you are not high sultan and are still subject to the [url=http://forum.feathercoin.com/index.php?topic=466.0]forum code of conduct[/url], as are the rest of us. I want to see this community remain positive and productive, even in the face of major disagreements. I hope you do as well.

    I purposely mentioned no names.

    You are saying you don’t trust anybody.

    I’m am saying I don’t trust people who don’t trust Bushstar.

    How are we different. Are we both taking shots at people?

    Your implication was obvious to any one with a shred of sense. Such behavior is unbecoming of anyone who claims to be a leader.

    Are you interested in actually having a discussion or do you just intend to keep circling with veiled accusations against community members? I, for one, would like to continue the discussion on ACP.

    Ladies, ladies! You’re both pretty!

    Seriously, there’s no need for all this. A small-timer got burnt on a bad trade, and I’m the devil in disguise because I thought the price would follow the perception, and not the market manipulation. Can we all please move on with our collective lives now that that’s out in the open?
