the "tuck fheman" account is labeled a "shill" if we even mention bitshares on reddit and we've received pm's on our blog, anonymously of course, telling
us to, "stop posting about that scam bitshares".
that being said, we get the same messages about bitcoin on imgur and reddit as well.
when feathercoin first started, it had the same bad rep everywhere because the userbase was very vocal everywhere
about their love for the coin.
and it happens for every coin out today.
however, it does get a bit unpalatable to see an obvious "swarm" of people start posting on a discussion about "xyzcoin to da m00n", as the worst possible example.
even just a bunch of post positively commenting about a specific coin looks like a manufactured effort and it comes across as cheesy, in our humble opinion.
not that we aren't guilty of doing it, a lot, but we don't mind being labeled cheesy. haters gonna hate, ya know.
but, we do try to avoid commenting about "xyzcoin" if a few others have commented previously about the coin and don't even bother trying to discuss bitshares near most nxt hodlers.
we had our own week long "disqustaster" with the hardcore nxt crew last year and it wasn't worth the effort after all was said and done.
just our collective 2 bitgold.
