There was a thread started here a few hours ago about whether there should be a BTC Talk thread for Neos - I think there should.
I appreciate it is something of a cesspool, but that doesn't make it irrelevant - it is easily the biggest crypto shop window. Added to that is the fact that people cannot be bothered (with good reason) to make new accounts on new forums - this forum itself is pretty quiet. Saying we don't need certain groups of people is elitist, self defeating and makes me uncomfortable. If Neos is any good it will win over the trolls.
Finally, I am also uncomfortable with the fact that the thread was locked within six hours with the comment "ok, well it seems that everyone is in agreement for the most part. fuck bitcoin talk. locking thread." by yak
Is six hours really a fair amount of time for everybody to express an opinion? Did the thread really need locking?
It has the slight smell of unwanted discussion being unilaterally shut down.
