  • Re: Missing the Junseth and Chris DeRose Chit Chat recap on the XCP Community Update show?

    Is he really just talking about the rewards program?

  • Re: Missing the Junseth and Chris DeRose Chit Chat recap on the XCP Community Update show?

    Also, who are my lackies and what do you mean by "Fork the Chat?"

  • Re: Missing the Junseth and Chris DeRose Chit Chat recap on the XCP Community Update show?

    @junseth I spelled it out Adam. How much LTBCoin did you give Robert to do his show on your network?

    Do you mean the rewards program that all content creators and audience members get?

    @junseth a - Yes, us. We were told if we wanted a show we would need to make it shorter, cut the language, cut the gossip, and to stop making fart jokes. We said "no" your lackies tried to fork the chat. Pretty clear.

    Wait, having network standards is censorship? This is a private platform that only publishes content about certain things (cryptocurrency) and english language, high quality audio and written content. Having a platform mission and platform standards is the same as telling you your content threatens me personally?

    b - one cannot prove a negative Adam. But your actions are what they are.

    The actions you described above aren't what I'd call censorship, we have a platform mission (talk about cryptocurrency ideas, people and projects) and platform standards (all ages appropriate, informative, dense and not too long) - So is this what you mean when you say I am censoring you lol? Does it matter that those standards were set literally years ago when the platform was created?

    Regarding Dr. Stephanie Murphy PhD, I said she gives stupid speeches at conferences and is a credentialist with nothing interesting to say, and that the only reason she's given space at the conferences is because she whines about women not getting opportunities in Bitcoin (which probably makes her a sexist). You can hear her speak of it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JutbyYTdjmI. How's that for evidence? I stand by that. Every speech I've ever seen her give is as rudimentary as can be. It's fine, save for the fact that there is a lot of good, high-level content that could have been put in its place. That said, at least she's not as bad as Toni Lane Casserole speaking about how women smoke cigarettes because they look like wieners: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-RZjJor3Tk#t=6m55s.

    I'm really unclear why you feel the need to go after Stephanie because she talks about basic bitcoin. That is a very important topic, why are you denigrating her for not becoming as much of a wonk as you or I? As far as the women in bitcoin thing goes, Stephanie has a right to have her opinion and I've got no problem with you having yours. Perception is reality to whomever is perceiving it.

    Just to make sure you didn't miss it, I've challenged you to show you're not just flat out lying. You've got a lot of words, if you haven't made it up you'll be able to find a single instance in my very public last two and a half years where what you say is happening all the time, has actually happened. This will be difficult of course because you're just lying and so can't back it up, but hey maybe i'm wrong and you've got some evidence to support your accusations

    @junseth

    a - You cannot find a single podcaster who we have worked with now or in the past who we've ever asked to make content changes unless it was a) about bad language because of the iTunes "All Ages" rating or b) that was a podcast not actually about cryptocurrency and thus not suitable for publishing. You've represented multiple times that specifically I am doing this but lets broaden it out and just say all of the LTBN. Can you find a single instance where your thesis matches reality?

    b - You cannot show a single instance of me censoring you, or anybody else for that matter. I'd suggest you start with the source @pooktwo who, although I have not discussed this challenge with him, I'm sure will answer any questions you have on the topic. You're welcome to look anywhere else you'd like. Can you find a single instance where your thesis matches reality?

    Since we both know you'll never admit your wrong, i'll just set the deadline for 24 hours from now. You can admit you're wrong, or present evidence that supports your arguements. You can post your evidence here in the forum and let anyone who is interested see and judge for themselves. If you prove me wrong, I'll appologize to you. If this challenge proves you wrong, we'll both just know you were unable to back up your accusations and that people will pay even less attention to you than they do now.

    Good luck, let me know if you need anybody's emails.

  • Re: Missing the Junseth and Chris DeRose Chit Chat recap on the XCP Community Update show?

    @junseth That's great Adam. You can listen to the show to find out all the many ways you've tried to influence the project, including the day you and your team tried to fork the counterparty chat. :) Or shall we mention the giant bribe you gave Robert in Adambucks. How many million LTBCoin did you give him again right after he became the project's community director? Is that publicly disclosable? Or is that something we should just hush hush?

    What are you talking about? If you have accusations please spell them out.

    Your confusion about the discussion topics we present on our show is probably rooted in the fact that you don't understand that Counterparty is Bitcoin, so Bitcoin talk and Counterparty talk... are the same thing. That said, if you want the title of smarter, bigger man, you can have it. I'm not interested. As to being kicked off Robert's show, it's fairly obvious that you did have a lot to do with that.

    Again, what are you talking about?

    My position is clearly stated, you're of course welcome to insinuate whatever you want but I can't respond to your handwavy non-responses. I understand if you can't respond, as I said your position is unsupportable if you have to provide actual evidence because it's not how things work here and if you'd ever asked anybody, you'd know that.

  • Re: Missing the Junseth and Chris DeRose Chit Chat recap on the XCP Community Update show?

    Seriously Joshua, your position here is totally unsupportable - I'm calling you out to put up some proof or admit that you're lying about me.

    a - You cannot find a single podcaster who we have worked with now or in the past who we've ever asked to make content changes unless it was a) about bad language because of the iTunes "All Ages" rating or b) that was a podcast not actually about cryptocurrency and thus not suitable for publishing. You've represented multiple times that specifically I am doing this but lets broaden it out and just say all of the LTBN. Can you find a single instance where your thesis matches reality?

    b - You cannot show a single instance of me censoring you, or anybody else for that matter. I'd suggest you start with the source @pooktwo who, although I have not discussed this challenge with him, I'm sure will answer any questions you have on the topic. You're welcome to look anywhere else you'd like. Can you find a single instance where your thesis matches reality?

    @RenegadeMan What did they claim about Stephanie?

  • Re: Missing the Junseth and Chris DeRose Chit Chat recap on the XCP Community Update show?

    @junseth

    Adam has been working hard to take the Counterparty project in a direction that is to his liking, which is fine. We guard against it, however, since his direction is... stupid.

    What are you talking about? What direction are you saying i'm taking it in that is stupid?

    I suspect your knowledge of Adam's behavior is from listening to his shows. My knowledge is from interacting with him and his team directly.

    We haven't spoken about anything of substance... in what, six months? And when we did, it was always in open chat channels on skype where you were attacking me or someone else and I was attempting to answer your questions, which as with every conversation you have you rejected out of hand because you're obviously right about everything. Have you ever interacted with my team in any way besides this? I can't recall ever but maybe you remember.

    You can certainly accuse me and Chris of acting like children, and we will even go so far as to high five you for the critique because it's true. We don't have the hubris of believing that we are adults. The instant you think you're an adult, you gain an amount of hubris that I think is impossible to tamp down. "I am right because adult" or because "I'm big serious man" are vainglorious sins that Adam has suffered from since childhood. We acknowledge that we are sitting at microphones and giving you our personal farts, our words have as much weight as anyone gives them, and we have no expectation of your respect whatever.

    lol.... So because I won't help you stack the fuel for your witch burnings I'm not worth listening to? The only person here who is acting self important is you. The only person who is attempting to make me out to be self important is you by acting like i'm somehow suppressing you. I literally have not taken any action, asked for any action regarding you. I haven't even listened to your episodes because I don't want you to drag me into your drama (although here we go again in this thread).

    I won't tear from your soul any respect for the guy. But I will say I have no reverence for anyone, and I don't believe in oracles. You can listen to Adam's network, you can listen to our show, you can listen to both, and more. But you should realize that the shows on LTB placate to Adam's understanding of what a podcast should look like, and he attacks good content that he thinks threatens his network's position. Meanwhile, Chris and myself are going to work to produce entertaining, quality content. This post was merely to inform people looking for us as to why we're not on the network anymore.

    The thing you can't abide is competition for being right. I'm one of many people who just isn't interested in your grandstanding and can actually do some basic thinking to see that your numbers do not add up and your positions are all show. I used to do a gaming podcast and on that show i was never wrong, in fact I don't think I lost an arguement on the internet until I was 25. You're a smart guy Joshua, you know same as I do that if someone has enough time and the desire you can always drag an arguement out until the other guy gets tired and moves on with his life. When I was 25 I was sick and stressed and burned out. I learned that it's not actually very valuable to anything besides your sense of self importance to never lose an arguement and that not only is losing valuable sometimes because it lets you internalize the lesson but it also helps other people to like you since you can have a conversation without needing to "win" or stall until a draw.

    When I look at you, that's what I see. You aren't going to lose any arguement and so my only smart move is to just ignore you and know you'll eventually get bored and wonder off for something that gives you more material to bounce off of (like this post)

    Just as a note, we didn't start a podcast trying to build an audience. The audience is there because our content is good. If the audience leaves, we're ok with that. We do the show because it's fun for us.

    And again to note, I had zero influence on Robert's decision to remove you guys from the show. Robert indicated to me that he warned you multiple times to focus on Counterparty stuff rather than attacking people personally and that the drama you participated in in the Counterparty chat after he recreated it was the last straw. I actually encouraged him to wait to drop you from the show until a few weeks had passed so that it wouldn't cause more drama but the decision was his.

    You're welcome to contact any and all podcasters on the LTB network and ask if I have ever once asked them to do anything differently in terms of content that wasn't a purely technical (i.e. how to deal with a headset boom so you don't breath into it or how to set up a virtual audio cables routing scheme)

    As i've told you before, the LTBN is a platform, we don't own, are not partners and don't even have written agreements with the podcasts on the network. Podcasters are asked to release their shows under permissive creative commons licensing terms (as I always have with LTB), maintain an account in our system and post them. Getting on the network is a simple process that starts with the submission of an episode, you or anyone else can always email [email protected] if you have any questions.

  • Re: Missing the Junseth and Chris DeRose Chit Chat recap on the XCP Community Update show?

    lol, you guys are talking about me and stephanie on the show? What exactly are you saying? It's flattering that you apparently think and speak about me so much Joshua.

    As to your other comments, how can I even respond? You've already made up your mind about me, facts be damned. You don't have to like me, but i'm not clear why it seems like a good idea to make shit up about me. It's almost like you just want to blame me for all your problems when in fact your behavior is the cause, and it's not me who even is paying attention or causing you harm.

    Or maybe you just want my attention?

    Just so you know, the first step to getting on the network would be to submit an episode/pilot of your show, which would then generate feedback from our editorial team and give you next steps from there.

    Oddly, you've never done that. In fact, you've never contacted me, ever, about anything. At all. Feel free to do that if you ever want to fact check your Adam segment lol. I find it hard to believe i'm that interesting unless you're also really into token use-cases.

  • Re: Let's Talk about Factom's Repeated Lies and "mistakes" - per cryptonaught's request

    @brighton36 I think I see what's wrong here. You don't know the definition of the word scam. Here: a dishonest scheme; a fraud.. I made that case very, very clearly.

    So funny story, I actually clicked your link and so long as you don't know the definition of "Fraud" your story holds up, but the definition of fraud is...

    deceit, trickery, sharp practice, or breach of confidence, perpetrated for profit or to gain some unfair or dishonest advantage.

    I still don't see any evidence that supports any of that. Would you like to try again? Please show me the evidence that supports your supposition that Factom has engaged in Deceit, Trickery, Sharp Practice or Breach of Confidence, Perpetrated for Profit (since I assume you're not suggesting its for an unfair advantage)

    Anything to support that? It seems like the protocol is being built and the money is being spent (quite slowly compared to many projects, do you think Ethereum is a scam as well?)

    From my perspective on the outside looking in, it looks like the project is indeed real and being developed. They have partners, they have users, they have developers, they have code, they have a product and a market even if you don't think there are any advantages. Or is it just your suspicion of a project that condemns a project to scam status?
