Some of us in the Marketing forum had agreed to let that thread die. It's been negative and filled with comments that don't add much; those particular people don't seem worth engaging. You've done a nice job breathing life into it, though, and making a case for DPOS.
I don't know, my philosophy is if I can convince a die-hard POW supporter to at least go on the fence (which I think I can say I have done at least twice already), then that is marketing gold right there. Plus some end up asking very good questions and if we can create good answers for those questions, then we create this arsenal of responses that we can refer to when trying to convince other Bitcoin supporters.
Anyway, I'm done with reddit for the day. That thread thoroughly exhausted me. But again, if knowledgeable people want to go in to answer remaining questions and fill in the gaps, I would appreciate it.
