Since we are now all under one roof, we need to squash this childish rivalry NOW kiddies.
So who does deserve more: PTS or AGS?

AGS clearly.

PTS owners complain that AGS owners made money on the BTSX trade.  Whoop de do, 6x?!

Yes, but that was the ONLY TRADE THEY WERE ALLOWED TO MAKE ALL YEAR!

PTS owners got to make money trading Protoshares around snapshots, Stellar coins, counterparty, maidsafe, banxshares, cannabiscoin, monero, darkblackcoin, Nubits, oldbits, etc, etc, etc!!

BOOYAH! as JC says.

AGS bagholders lost money compared to the awesome 8 months of crypto trading potential PTS holders had.  From where I’m standing, AGS deserves more!

...

The original BitShares ecosystem design involved several DACs because we did not even know if DPOS would work (if BTSX failed, then DNS might have wound up being POW, who knows) otherwise we would have gone this (unified) direction in the first place.  And since we have this valuable hindsight now: that we should have started out all under one roof, then how long will wait before we change course to where we only now realize that we should have been headed this whole time!  To delay changing direction, when you see that you are off course is beyond stubborn, it’s slow suicide.  If every consecutive BitShares DAC destroys the previous one, then the overall volatility of the sum of the BitShares investments remains highly volatile (BOOM (new DAC), BUST (old DAC), BOOM (new DAC), BUST (old DAC)).  Your market wants price stability, not high volatility (this is the big complaint against BTC, and the reason for BitUSD).  So how would we sell our price stabilizing coin to the world if our equity is continuously pumping and dumping (that does not breed confidence).  Confidence is what we are buying by merging all into one.  The “safety in numbers” or “family stability” concept is one that humans love and trust.  We are forcing all DACs to live together under one roof which means, no fighting or competing with each other, and it means that we only need to build one bathroom, kitchen, living room, etc.  Guys from DNS can help guys from BTSX, and vice versa, because we all have more closely aligned goals.

I think the point is it's bad to manipulate the value of people's assets through some 'proposal', no matter how great the proposals look like. What's the difference from gov?
Prices plunged, damages done. The whole drama is hurting people. I believe BM was not intended, but still, hurting. Please stop.

Your life is manipulated by the world you live in, not the other way around.  If the sun explodes tomorrow, then it controls you, not the other way around. You are locked into this world.  Those who succeed are flexible and dynamic, not rigid and unchanging.  The world around you is changing, and you can either change with it or complain about it.  Yes, we are manipulating the value of peoples’ assets because we are dynamic, and changing with respect to the changing environment we live in. 

Come back in a month to find out exactly which direction the value of your investments is being manipulated to.

Dang, DA, I actually followed that!
Mind if I shamelessly copypaste some of it?
Awesome summary.  :)

If I were you, I would not sue him for any copyright related issues, Stan... after all we do not really need a lawyer to approve a legally appropriate way to move our money from one pocket to another.    :)

No, he is [unsuccessfully trying to beat my ridiculousness]... I already paid 1,000 BTSX for a picture of a $20 bill posted  on a forum !

No hard feelings *once*  :)

Lack of arbitrage is the problem, isn't it. And this 'should' solves it.

An early entry from the talented Vizzini, which I hope you'll consider. Too busy to write next week:
-----

It was an ancient crypthead
And he stoppeth one of three
By thy long neckbeard and glossed over eyes
Now wherefore stopp’st thou me?

He held him with his white-knuckl’d hand
‘There is a DAC’ quoth he
‘It’ll replace your bank and so much more
Our future is plain to see’

‘Hold off! Unhand me, delusion'd loon!
My money stays in Cryptsy!
Some Bitcoin, Namecoin, a little Doge
Scant PTS I have already!’

On and on through summer’s heat
Besmirched with Gox and pools
I sold my meager DAC stakes
And heeded the cries of fools

Money, money everywhere
And not a penny for me
I lost it all in Mintpal
Forsooth should’ve entrusted it to thee

I wish I’d put it all in BTSX!

Though I got my angelshares for less,
I should have got me some PTS.

Still would have gotten a snapshot share,
Then immediately dumped PTS like a bear.

Could have done that a few times,
Much more profitable than virtual mines.

Opportunity cost of not getting paid,
Meant a lower chance of getting laid.

The decision was near-sighted,
but now we all are reunited.

Hopefully I will not end up a buffoon,
Cause no BTS for sale till we get to the moon.

Late at night while once asleep,
I dreamed a dream, of Crypto’s Peak.
Then morning came, the trades I’d made
Had multiplied thrice what I’d paid.

With muffled squeal I celebrated
I felt so good I masturbated
Then lay so calm upon my bed
With cigarette and Johnnie Walker Red

Then with the sweat, still on my back
I pillowed up, plugged in my mac
I checked my balance on BTER’s bourse
My shares had crashed like a dead horse

So “anti-up” I told myself
“Go Protoshares” came out my mouth
So nervously I purchased some
then made my bed and cleaned up the cum

I watched the trades go to and fro
Sometimes real high, sometimes real low
I contemplated selling out
But greed did need, so I held out

“Yippee, Hoorah Bitshares is here”
I said out loud, to awkward stares
“No don’t you see, look understand
This is the PTS promise land”

I thought I’d made it, true to my stance
I’d held my shares through the advance
Until BM and Stan  and team
Set dynomite under my dream.

I felt betrayed, confabulated
[Deep breath] I mured, with patience waited
Inevitably, I must decry
“PTS is dead” [with heavy sigh]

The November discovery was a blast
to find that PTS was available at last
That when the mining did begin
and my processors tried to win

Day by day I watched my stake increase
though only a few PTS at a time
In mid March i tried to press the crease
by upping my ability to mine

I feared it was to late
to increase my stake without a buy
it had become obvious to me
the GPUs were really about to fly

The price wandered north and south
my attention went awry
I didn't notice the price
had given a nice big spike

Now I sit and watch
as the prices take a dive
I think back to those times and wish
that I would have paid for shares instead of mine.
