I suppose that was my mistake in having an open conversation with you.

My apologies for setting of your radar.

No worries.  It wasn't much of a conversation which is what made it stand out even more. I'd never seen legitimate monied people talk like that. Still haven't. Glad to see one be so open about their finances.

Not sure what I am thinking in regards to the 2k requested for the marketing thing. It was something that'd allow them to publish directly to publications in the interest of Bitshares. A noble goal to be sure, but it seemed to sort of disappear when they were asked to provide their real name from the community. Probably my memory failing me, although in general it is pretty good.

Cheers.

edit - Also I never ever called you a scammer. That is your  doing. I didn't even imply it. I have no reason to think you are a scammer, just that you are a <ahem> a bit suspect. Honestly I had always wondered who you were since I was familiar with everyone at that convention that was involved with BitShares. I guessed you were Murderistic, but never knew until that picture was posted with you in.  Anyway, good luck on your endeavors and spreading blockchain technology to the gambling world out of the kindness of your heart.

They asked for $27,000 dollars on steemit lol. We need to track these guys with a camera to see what they do each day. Anyways, Ned flagged this didn't he? Made me happy to be part of Steem/Steemit.

I provided a name, and I belive a few others stood for me, but the vitriol displayed seemed to dissuade me from even attempting to reason with people.

I appreciate the comment, though it seems not genuine - "good luck - out of the kindness of your heart."

ps - re: scam reread your comments, you said scam, scammy, etc  that's enough. and you know it.

pps - this forum is like my teenage son, it stinks - it doesn't know what it wants, it's unstable and generally unreliable.

Actually, I already spent it, never asked for it.

We just let everyone know what the marketing cost of a real campaign that brought tens of thousands of people looked like.

Track me with a camera?

What is wrong with you?

Ned flagged it because...I don't know, let's ask [member=42572]Ned[/member] officially?

PS - I brought 800 new members to steemit today [member=8871]ag[/member] - what did you do.

[member=6]Stan[/member] @dan - this is why this community DIED.

Wait and see.  :)

It's incredibly ironic, but I think you don't fully grasp the genius of Dan's work. If you did, you wouldn't lower yourself to deal with people with that kind of sketchy background because what Dan has developed is simply brilliant and *will* speak for itself eventually. By endorsing that kind of folks, it's your own son's reputation you are tarnishing.

Seriously, did you see that new project of Mark Lyford and Michael Taggart: Steemcash.com ?. This page is the epitome of bad taste cheap raucuous sales pitch drivel they didn't even bother to run through a spellchecker. This page is an embarassement to Steem in itself, it's the most recklessly parasitic "business" I have seen appearing around Steem, guaranteed to make Steem appear like a cheap get-rich-quick sc(heme/am) to anyone finding about it that way.

Thinking that this is the creation of a Cryptonomex founder highly recommended by Cryptonomex CEO is simply nauseating. If you really support that nonsense, why don't you just, you know, go that direction all the way and start installing spyware and adware in binaries, and put porn, online dating and casino adds everywhere? Because that's exactly the kind of crap I would expect to find in Steemit and Cryptonomex after reading that Steemcash trash pitch, and not the technical chef-d'oeuvre that Graphene, BitShares and Steem actually are.

Seriously Stan, if you have any sort of self-esteem and respect for Dan's work, take some distance from Michael Taggart and Mark Lyford, at least as far as public dealings around Steem and BitShares are concerned (who your friends are in private is none of our business). Your son is a freaking genius, YOU JUST DON'T NEED these cheap snake oil salesmen. They are the ones who need you, and that's why they spend most of their effort trying to appear friendly, smart and helpful to you.

1. I was never a part of BANX.  EVER.  I consulted with Mark at times on cases of marketing.  I didn't have anything to do with the decisions he ultimately made there.
I would like to confirm that Michael had never been a part of Banx and has only ever assisted me with marketing consultancy.

What about other way around... has Banx ever been in involved with Michael? Apparently Banx owns (or owned?) half of Remittio. If there is a discussion about relationship between Michael and Banx, don't you think this is something that would be fair to mention?



Screenshot taken from BanxCapital.com.

Would you mind telling how Banx aqcuired the shares? Were they bought with the money that came from Banx investors? Or did Michael just gave half of the company to Banx?

pps - this forum is like my teenage son, it stinks - it doesn't know what it wants, it's unstable and generally unreliable.

I said "I wrote you off as a fraud".  I didn't say anything about your specific actions in business just as how you came across to me. I didn't use scam, scamming or whatever. Again, those are your words. I have reread what I said more than once now.  You can keep trying to rewrite what is going on, but I honestly have no reason to think you're a scammer. I didn't know who you were. You were just some dude with arm tats telling me how he made an easy million.

 I personally don't care, it is just that this was finally solved for me. That dude is Murderistic. Nothing more. I should have just kept my mouth quiet.

I'm not sure about this forum, back in the day it was quite a useful place although I will admit some passion was misplaced by users at times. It is an easy scapegoat, and has always been that way with certain types. I'm seeing it here.. pathetic.

I'm sure you're a smart guy and good at whatever marketing type stuff you do.  For real. I was poking fun about you about the gambling project that was for the good of mankind, but that was your spin.... now you act all hurt. Epic.

LOL. 

We all know why this community here is toxic - it begins with the general attitude displayed in your comments - and your friends.

Not playful.

Either way, enjoy knowing everything - this "fraudster" paid $10,000+ to advertisers and referrers that brought over 1k new people to steemit today.

Why would you want anything like that? On the contrary, this should be pinned so that everybody can see what kind of person Michael/Murderistic really is.

You can't solve any problems by hiding them.

Because the thread was started by an outsider to our community who has never contributed anything to bitshares and who only joined this forum to promote his own article elsewhere and who is now here only to spread FUD.

You think he is here posting again now, after a long absence,  in order to add to our community or the development of BitShares?  Give yourself a shake of the head.
