Belias: impaler: impaler: No one said that. If they didn't have an email account, they didn't care if you did.

In fact, they wouldn't even know WTF email was to comment on it.

Stop lying. Jesus. This bitcoiner desire to compare bitcoin adoption to the internet is transparent and ridiculous.

When in doubt, ad hominem?

The fact is, when offered email, some (SOME) people absolutely questioned it because their friends didn't have it. Source? My personal experience. I'm not comparing Bitcoin to the Internet, I'm noting that the specific complaint of 'my favorite retailers don't accept it, so I don't see the point of it' is absolutely similar to some early questioners of the usefulness of email.

I get it, you hate Bitcoin. You think it's silly, you think it's a ponzi scheme, or you're just pissed off that you didn't 'get in' soon enough to cash in on early rises.  With gleeful malice, you point to each "crash" of the exchange value as proof of your evaluation.  And yet, the exchange rate now stands at $650 to one Bitcoin, despite several "crashes".  This brand of logic parallels climate change deniers who point to short term downward trends in temperature as "proof" that climate change is invalid, ignoring the clear long-term upward trend.

The concept of cryptocurrency isn't going anywhere. The genie is out of the bottle and there's no putting it back in. Bitcoin's only real competitor is a child coin, but first mover is a powerful advantage, especially with open source.

I'd love to argue with you more, but I'm off to get the latest humble bundle, with Bitcoin of course.

I didn't do ad hom. You're lying. That's just honest assessment. No one seriously criticized email. Even in your personal example, where they had no interest, that wasn't criticism. It no way compares to bitcoin. And that's ignoring the fact that if they were wrong on email, they would lose their shirt.

I love your idiot "you're just jealous" bit retard defense. I have long term capital gains in FMCC, which unlike you I have realized profits. So no. I've made more money than you on other investments.

Better yet, I got my money back, where I actually can use it.
And that's a fact you can't even begin to claim I'm jealous about

Thank you for calling Mt.Gox. We understand you have concerns, but we'd like you to know that any concerns you have are because you trusted millions of dollars with a website named "MAGIC THE GATHERING ONLINE EXCHANGE". Now, please stop being dumb and realize that there's nothing wrong with fiat currency.
