New thread?

imo it doesn't make much sense to leave the field to lunacy.

But the debunking is getting tedious, and the lack of integrity displayed by pro-SV members of this community is disappointing and shocking to me, personally.

My feeling: CSW was an excellent confidence man, did a sterling job dividing the community and discrediting the real Bitcoin movement. But his time is running out, and the next fake Satoshis are already lining up. They are going to try to rinse and repeat, even if with a weaker shampoo.

We need to firmly reject any future "Satoshis" that have a sketchy back story, not encourage them.

The real Satoshi would understand.

that's just like you to avoid the technical underpinnings (lack thereof) of rolling checkpoints and it's clear effect on PoW. i'm sure you were part of that thread a few weeks ago when Core released it's latest checkpoint allowing all the BCH trolls to cheer pointing to that as somehow vindication of what the BCH devs did in that regard. what a joke.

i'd also say beware of ppl claiming to be of superior moral integrity when all we're doing is discussing our varied views on someone else's actions:

The period includes my master’s degree in law and a master’s degree in statistics.

https://medium.com/@craig_10243/the-myth-of-forks-be04f8e5fe4a

i actually agree it sounds fishy but i am not aware of how they handle the diction of such a word in places like Australia and/or England. here's something that may help:

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search
The Masters in Law (M.L. or LL.M.; Latin Magister Legum or Legum Magister) is a postgraduate academic degree, pursued by those either holding an undergraduate academic law degree, a professional law degree, or an undergraduate degree in a related subject. In some jurisdictions the "Masters in Law" is the basic professional degree for admission into legal practice.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Master_of_Laws

[doublepost=1551973817][/doublepost]@freetrader: since you insist on talking about ppl, b/c really, that's all you got when it comes to dissing the BSV protocol.
[doublepost=1551974141][/doublepost]Australia

In Australia, the LL.M. is generally only open to law graduates. However, some universities permit a non-law graduate to undertake variants of the degree.
[doublepost=1551974293][/doublepost]Germany

In Germany, the LL.M. is seen as an advanced legal qualification of supplementary character. As such, Master of Laws programmes are generally open not only to law graduates, but also to graduates of related subjects or those displaying a genuine interest in and link to the particular LL.M. programme in question
[doublepost=1551974359,1551973706][/doublepost]Hong Kong.

An LL.B. degree is usually required for admission, but for some specialised programmes, such as the LL.M. in Human Rights programme offered by HKU, requires an undergraduate degree in laws or any related discipline.

[doublepost=1551974932][/doublepost]United Kingdom

Most institutions allow those without a first degree in law onto their LL.M. programme although there are still minimum educational requirements, such as an undergraduate degree, or evidence of substantial professional experience in a related field. Examples of such programmes include the Master of Studies in Legal Research at Oxford, the LL.M. degrees at the University of Edinburgh and LL.M.s at the University of Leicester


didn't CSW claim to have some connection at Oxford? i know he said he just gave a talk there. maybe this is the connection as to how these things fit together.
[doublepost=1551974968][/doublepost]ok, i got it. here's the relevant fact that puts it all together:

United Kingdom:

An LL.M course can therefore sometimes be a choice comparable to an MBA or an accountancy degree, acting as a supplementary discipline intended for career enhancement. So, for example, an engineer working extensively with matters such as intellectual property (patents, etc.) may seek broader knowledge and recognition by pursuing an LL.M.

Good job copypasting mostly irrelevant stuff and sneaking in a couple of ad homs, @cypherdoc .

You're a US citizen, you obviously should recognize the context of Craig's "I am a lawyer" as being a discussion of US law. And in the US an actual practicing lawyer or attorney would need to pass the bar exam.

Craig has claimed to have sat the bar exam (on video record) but didn't mention where. Completion of the LL.M. degree in itself does not guarantee eligibility to take the bar exam, and not all states allow foreign law graduates (which Craig would be based on his disclosed law degree).
I look forward to someone setting the record straight on the details.

What the term "lawyer" means in England (and Wales): https://www.sra.org.uk/consumers/using-solicitor/legal-jargon-explained.page#lawyer

Craig may be availing himself of one of these categories, but I doubt he's on the roll of solicitors.
The Solicitors Regulation Authority has an informative page on "bogus solicitors" and what to do about them.

Toomim jumping ship. Funny how so many key BABies have disappeared, gone bankrupt, or just become depressed/angry?


Meanwhile


Starting to realise you backed the wrong Satoshi yet? Still 0.5 BCH/BSV, it's not too late to double your coins.

@Zarathustra clearly by you saying that you mean a US philosopher. oh noes...

@freetrader I don't know where you're getting your info on CSW referring to being a US lawyer. he's aussie and lives in London. I think claiming to be a US attorney is the furthest thing from his mind.

and if I did anything but copy paste that highly relevant material I'm sure you'd accuse me of manipulating the facts. not that I don't trust you or anything...

@cypherdoc, I get it from the context of the original tweet where he claimed it. Look at his preceding tweet.

It's archived so that there's no need to talk about manipulating anything. Certainly not within your capability, or Craig's for that matter.

p.s. I'm not asking you to trust me. I'm asking you to READ.

I'm not nearly as sure about that.

Are you suggesting he would rather be claiming to be a lawyer in Australia or a lawyer in England? Or maybe in Hong Kong?

Maybe this works better for you.


This forum is too smart for its own good. It's archived on web.archive.org in case someone else needs the tweet later.
