BitShares bashing on reddit/r/bitcoin

Interesting that they can spend so heavily in marketing a product that doesnt even have a deadline anymore. How long before we get a "Gee Golly guys, we tried our best but we ran out of funding!"

The thread is recovering nicely now. Personally, I think this PresidentofBitcoin poster exists only to spread false rumors about Bitshares. Dude gets my downvotes every time.

And your point is...?

Stan answered my question, I said thanks and even changed the title of the post to [Explained].

What exactly are you trying to say?

I see nothing wrong with potentially calling out Devs and bringing potentially unpopular opinions into the fray.  Our world largely got into the mess it is in because people were too afraid of being considered unpopular by the rest of the herd for bringing up "negative" thoughts. 

I say you say it, but you admit if you are proven wrong...that is far more than "professional" journalists on mainstream media do...

My point was that someone had started an anti-BitShares thread on the Bitcion sub-reddit.

I posted the thread you call "grumblings of financial discrepancy" here and you are trying to link it to a reddit thread about bashing Bitshares. It looks like you are trying to insinuate I am behind the bashing thread in reddit and I am not.  I want Bitshares to succeed.

There was an anti-BitShares thread on Reddit. I posted an alert to its existence. My alternative was to not notify participants on this forum of its existence.

If you are an active member of this forum, then it's safe to say that you have the ear of the developers. Free speech and dissenting views are clearly honored here. I agree that makes this community (and hopefully, the DACs) better in the long run. So why the hell do you have to go out on Reddit, where people don't know shit and where Bitshares is entirely defined by rumors, and post what was clearly a bashing thread? It's like a professional sports player who disagrees with the management and takes that dispute to the press instead of going to the management directly. I don't know who started it and I don't care, but that's amateur hour, man. I find the practice to be utterly cowardly, harmful, and unnecessary.

I don't know why they do it either, but I have run across this type of behavior all of my life. Perhaps it is because some people are more afraid of success than they are of failure (success does not fit their self-image). Whatever the reason, it is my experience that it needs to be nipped in the bud.

until there is an actual product, it is impossible to defend against this kind of bashing. a lot of people have paid for a promise. there is certainly a possibility (whether you think it is an "off-chance" or "50/50" or "most likely") that there will never be a product.

That's just "the pot calling the kettle black".

Perhaps you should heed your advice and go to reddit to criticize the critics of BTS there.

Good for you. Your message here is still quite ironic though.
