No real offence intended but, to me it seems obvious that your arguments
are logically flawed and I'm not going to waste my time, but I will say
your contrarianism is actually kinda entertaining in a sadistic sort of
way. I really am only expressing my opinions, I could be wrong, but I
really don't think I am, really it's just a matter of perspective. There
are givers and there are takers in this world, and when there are more
givers than takers the world becomes a better place. However the trend,
which indeed I assume you are a good example of, for people these days
seems to be towards takers and zero-sum minded people. Which is something I
hope to discourage. This all of course is philosophical and not technical,
I have a preference for discussing real technical matters in regards to
crypto, cryptocurrencies, algorithm ideas, privacy assurance, and
steganography (favorite cipher), and of course sharing of industry related
news and insights. I hope you all have a great day. :-)
