Posting facts is not allowed"The Average Transaction Fee in 2016 was 16.5 Cents" - BobsBurgers3Bitcoin
On what basis would any reasonable sub censor this."in /r/Bitcoin" - aquahol
r\Bitcoin has not been reasonable for about 2 years now."Bitcoin's fundamental value proposition is censorship resistance." - Leithm
This clearly oversteps their claim that you can talk about anything"I was PM'ing with one of the users in r\Bitcoin recently because my comments were being shadow-deleted." - BobsBurgers3Bitcoin
So now people can't even post facts about fees in r\bitcoin?"other than attempts to fix the consensus protocol." - Annapurna317
why does /r/Bitcoin sensor such"Blockstream, Core and r\bitcoin are trying to slowly kill Satoshi's Bitcoin - via censhorship and centralized control." - ydtm
"vital information?" - silverjustice
Difficult to be successful when Bitcoin has been co-opted by blockstream and turned into something else. Circle is basically gone too. It's unbelievable what has happened to the prospects of Bitcoin under core. All the excitement, all the business development, all the possibilities that were just exploding from Bitcoin just died."is Leaving the Company" - ethereumcpw

Bingo, the network does a successful hard fork once and their hegemonic spell evaporates for good. There's $76 mil (and more)"even come close to potentially splitting the network?" - specialenmity
The real reasons why Blockstream using lies and censorship and propaganda to force people into always doing a dangerous and messy soft fork, instead of a simple and safe hard fork:"riding on preventing this." - TunaMeIt
"For other people who might want to review some of these earlier discussions, a few links are provided below:
Reminder: Previous posts showing that Blockstream's opposition to hard-forks is dangerous, obstructionist, selfish FUD. As many of us already know, the reason that Blockstream is against hard forks is simple: Hard forks are good for Bitcoin, but bad for the private company Blockstream.

"They [Core/Blockstream] fear a hard fork will remove them from their dominant position." ... "Hard forks are 'dangerous' because they put the market in charge, and the market might vote against '[the] experts' [at Core/Blockstream]" - /u/ForkiusMaximus

The real reason why Core / Blockstream always favors soft-forks over hard-forks (even though hard-forks are actually safer because hard-forks are explicit) is because soft-forks allow the "incumbent" code to quietly remain incumbent forever (and in this case, the "incumbent" code is Core)
https://np.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/40 ... am_always/
As Core / Blockstream collapses and Classic gains momentum, the CEO of Blockstream, Austin Hill, gets caught spreading FUD about the safety of "hard forks", falsely claiming that: "A hard-fork forced-upgrade flag day ... disenfranchises everyone who doesn't upgrade ... causes them to lose funds"

SegWit-as-a-softfork is a hack. Flexible-Transactions-as-a-hard-fork is simpler, safer and more future-proof than SegWit-as-a-soft-fork - trivially solving malleability, while adding a "tag-based" binary data format (like JSON, XML or HTML) for easier, safer future upgrades with less technical debt
https://np.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/5a ... is_a_hack/
The proper terminology for a "hard fork" should be a "FULL NODE REFERENDUM" - an open, transparent EXPLICIT process where everyone has the right to vote FOR or AGAINST an upgrade. The proper terminology for a "soft fork" should be a "SNEAKY TROJAN HORSE" - because IT TAKES AWAY YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE.

Core/Blockstream is living in a fantasy world. In the real world everyone knows (1) our hardware can support 4-8 MB (even with the Great Firewall), and (2) hard forks are cleaner than soft forks. Core/Blockstream refuses to offer either of these things. Other implementations (eg: BU) can offer both.

Normal users understand that SegWit-as-a-softfork is dangerous, because it deceives non-upgraded nodes into thinking transactions are valid when actually they're not - turning those nodes into "zombie nodes". Greg Maxwell and Blockstream are jeopardizing Bitcoin - in order to stay in power.

"Negotiations have failed. BS/Core will never HF - except to fire the miners and create an altcoin. Malleability & quadratic verification time should be fixed - but not via SWSF political/economic trojan horse. CHANGES TO BITCOIN ECONOMICS MUST BE THRU FULL NODE REFERENDUM OF A HF." ~ u/TunaMelt
https://np.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/5e ... _never_hf/
If Blockstream were truly "conservative" and wanted to "protect Bitcoin" then they would deploy SegWit AS A HARD FORK. Insisting on deploying SegWit as a soft fork (overly complicated so more dangerous for Bitcoin) exposes that they are LYING about being "conservative" and "protecting Bitcoin".

Wladimir van der Laan (Lead Maintainer, Bitcoin Core) says Bitcoin cannot hard-fork, because of the "2008 subprime bubble crisis" (??) He also says "changing the rules in a decentralized consensus system is a very difficult problem and I don’t think we’ll resolve it any time soon." But Eth just did!

"Co-opting a dev team or a repo is far easier than trying to end-run a market. ... Hard forks are the only way for the market to express its will, which is the only way for Bitcoin to remain both decentralized and viable. ... Hard forks are exactly what is needed in a controversy" ~ u/ForkiusMaximus
