I've been a very active member of bitcointalk since mid 2011. Sadly, I no longer consider it a good venue for Bitcoin discussion. Without getting into details, it suffices to say that theymos and the other mods of bitcointalk and /r/bitcoin (on reddit) are aggressively removing threads and posts that they don't agree with in a self-admitted campaign to hide others' views. This has pushed myself and others to seek new bitcoin-focused communities without aggressive censorship. I hope this forum and others thrive.
Bitcoin is the first monetary system to credibly offer perfect information to all economic participants.

Those are the same reasons I'm here, and why I was motivated by the people on /r/BitcoinXT to setup this forum.

Please help spread the word that this forum will permit dissenting views.

In an open debate, the truth will likely win out in the end.

I've been in bitcoin since the begin of 2013. the problem with bitcointalk and reddit is that it is controlled by the same person which is a big problem in my view. theymos will always censor stuff when he thinks it is necessary. it already happend. it will happen again.

it would be even better if bitcointalk, reddit and this forum would have different mods, but at least now we have 2 different forums. :P

I don't think there's any kind of censorship going on in bitcointalk.org but came here trying to reserve my username anyway.

Let's see how anti-censorship the admin of this forum is.

Roger Ver is a lightning rod for bad publicity about Bitcoin. The bad publicity he generates (Mt. Gox, Bounty Hunter, suing Amiir Taaki, losing his citizenship and then complaining that a clerk in a passport window won't adjudicate his legal issues, etc.) far outweighs any good he did by investing in Bitcoin companies.

https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/roger-v ... t-dispute/

Roger Ver has access to the Blockchain.info database and is prepared to abuse it in order to take revenge over a customer service dispute in one of his other businesses.

See this thread for more details:

Man, Roger. The heaviest form of censorship going on in bitcointalk was theymos moving posts asking people to download and run bitcoin XT to the altcoin board. You're actually more of a shill here since you're trying to cash in on the drama while I'm mentioning facts.

I registered to follow and maybe participate interesting discussions about Bitcoin where everyone is allowed to voice his/her views no matter how unpopular they might be.

I hope the tone of these discussions would stay respectful despite the lack of aggressive/partisan moderation and regardless of unavoidable trolling (there's no need to respond in kind). Maybe that's too much to hope for, but we'll see how it goes.

With freedom comes responsibility.

Nah, the censorship's quite real. Try posting this bitcoin address on bitcointalk:

and in the end it is pretty healthy to have one forum which is not controlled by the same guy.

Hello,

I am a regular visitor of bitcoin.com so I registered naturally when I discovered the forum. I just noticed differences between this forum and bitcointalk, like information of author is at right side thread/post and there's a soundcloud in my post toolbar? Probably more differences I didn't notice yet :o

Joined the forum after hearing about it at Decentral. Been on Bitcointalk since 2013 and to be honest I wasn't a fan... sometimes their was just to much noise.

I believe everyone should have the right to their own opinion. Censoring that opinion to shape the opinion's of others is the strategy of the current mainstream media. We should have a place we can have open discussion and debates in order to further innovation within the space.

I'm glad to see the slight decentralization of the forums and having more then one resource to turn to is a great step forward.

Keep up the great work :)

I became a member on this forum because I needed a change from the old bitcointalk forum and hope some of my input here can help others.

Welcome to all the new members and lets make this the no1 go to bitcoin forum, that will be hard considering the head start the old forum has but there is a lot of members on that site not happy with the way things are being run and likewise with Reddit/bitcoin.
If we listen to the concerns these members have we could make this the forum everyone serious about btc would want to talk on.
