Why do you lie so much Roger. Your guys cant even write one line of code. Better stay with the open source movement Roger.

Think about the children you can save with that and all the coffee you can buy!

Here is the quote from the original Bitcoin white paper.

Segwit removes the signatures and allows them to be discarded, so there would no longer be a "chain of digital signatures".
By the definition of Bitcoin given in the original whitepaper, they would no longer be Bitcoins.
What part of that logic do you disagree with?

Well, yeah, if we look at it that way, then Bitcoin Classic is closer to Satoshis original version, but hey, that is beauty of blockchain, each side can do as they agree.
