When censorship will occur:

Sat Sep 19, 2015 9:08 pm

I intend to let any sort of honest discussion take place on this board, but overt attempts at fraud or deception will be dealt with.

One example that may already have happened is the registration of a user name of someone well known in the space by someone other than that actual person. If that is found to have happened, the user will be forced to change their user name, or to create a new account.

We will likely need to add a few more rules like this as we figure out what is needed.

Cheers on the new forum.

Will discussions relating to altcoins be tolerated at all, or perhaps only in the strict context of specific technological/cryptography discussions? I'm not advocating either way, just wondering how this (hot) topic will be handled.

Everyone is free to talk about as many altcoins as they want.
If there is a big enough demand for it, we can start various sub-forums devoted to it.

I say no:

*picture*
Agreed. The problem is that no one is right and no one is wrong, because there is no central authority who can define XT as an altcoin. Who detemines what is allowed to be called "bitcoin"? The core devs? The users? In my opinion, whatever software/protocol controls the majority of the blockchain is the "real" bitcoin.

I really like the idea of many different bitcoin implementations with different ideas of how things should be. People simply choose which implementation they think are "right" and go with that. When that implementation reaches a large majority it makes the changes it wants and others would have to follow, or make an altcoin. I see each implementation as a party in a democracy, and people simply vote who should be the next leader.

The censorship that has been occurring is just a way to stop this kind of "voting". If no one knows of any other implementation, they won't be a threat to the current implementation. And of course the current implementation would like to keep it's majority because then those developers have the power to shape bitcoin for their needs.

The censorship has only been possible because a few people own the majority of the forums and thus they decide what users are allowed to talk about. I am positive that this forum will change that because it has the domain name that will naturally draw people towards it. I don't think this would've been possible without this domain name, since it would've been extremely hard to get noticed. So thank you for starting this forum and let's make it a place where everyone can discuss without fear of the banhammer!

So if Bitcoin-XT were assimilated fully, then Bitcoin core would be an altcoin?

It's like Bitcoin is a borg. Once an interesting fork or feature arises in an altcoin, Bitcoin absorbs it and the altcoin becomes Bitcoin.

Yes, exactly as per your logic in the picture rebuddle to Mr. Luke Jr.

But maybe also we need to come up with better lingo for forks than to call them altcoins.

You can call a fork whatever you want but at the end of the day a hard fork creates a altcoin, does it not?

yes and if XT is forcing a fork through different means than just the consensus from hashing then isn't XT an alt?
