    Clean up the forum

    You could say that about literally every link in this forum: https://www.xrpchat.com/forum/109-other-press/ There are like 300 links to "todaysgazette.com"

    Clean up the forum

    Counterpoint: tr0lley has a significant following on his blog, twitter & reddit and his blog posts about XRP should be critiqued in the "other press" forum, which is designated for blogs. Banning his site would be an embarrassment for this community. tr0lley's posts are often referenced in no-coiner and crypto communities on Reddit, Rationalwiki and Twitter, as well as by Bitcoin critics like David Gerard and Bitfinexed. They're one retweet away from mainstream media, and that has institutional investor impact. Banning their discussion here does not make them disappear on the internet: rather, it makes us look like we're unable to respond to the critiques. Press looking for a response to tr0lley would find nothing here. Many would take the site being banned as a sign of its veracity. I don't link my own sites, I don't even run an XRP site, despite the unhinged conspiracy theory above.
  3. Here's a thread calling for me to be banned, complete with a conspiracy theory that I'm profiting somehow: It did occur to me to wonder, and here's what I think: A lot of people are using this forum as therapy for a bad decision they made last year. Personally, I should have sold more at 2.75. I feel guilty I didn't, and will sometimes come to this forum hoping for positive news, any sign of a new bull run. When I post a blog article that is no less ridiculous or credulous than the ones spammed here daily from "Crypto-gazette-XRP69-420-daily.co.uk", but is instead critical of XRP, it's a break in the echo chamber. People begin to doubt the decision they made in early 2018, and it makes them uncomfortable to varying degrees. For the dumbest of those people, it makes them want to censor that type of speech. To "clean up the forum" of any and all blasphemers. People would much rather read another hopium link from a random wordpress blog repeating Ripple news from 2017 as if it were new. Or at least, they wouldn't be calling for my head if that's the link I posted.

  5. Yeah, he's clearly full of **** here. He either hasn't heard of Ripple's non-xrp products (which I find hard to believe, considering he's been writing about the company for months) or he's lying. An intelligent response, thank you. And as always, happy to see a bunch of posts calling for me to be censored/banned.

  7. When posting a link that's critical of Ripple, you must denounce it. Totally normal investment community.
  8. I'm still waiting to see if you can quote me having issue with people who disagree with the blog post. My issue is with those who want to censor blasphemy, and those who put words in my mouth.
  9. My proposal is to not ban me for posting a link about XRP being discussed on social media. I need to pledge allegiance before posting now? Pretty cultish. What planet did this happen on? Can you point out where I had issue with people who disagree with the article, rather than those who are upset with the messenger?
  10. a) look at the forum: "Other Press: Blog posts, articles from new websites etc" The reason I posted it here is because I understand the difference between a blog from a new website and a reputable news source. Perhaps you should put this entire section on ignore? d) The error of my ways? I posted a link my dude. Here's the first response: Keep in mind I have shared no opinion on Ripple nor its partnerships in this entire thread. My responses are for the people who think I should be banned for posting a link to "FUD".
  11. I'm not at all bothered by any critiques of the article. I'm more concerned with those asking me to be banned for sharing it.
  12. If this website is only for positive articles, mods just let me know and I'll go elsewhere. I have an interest in xrp and don't invest with blinders on.
  13. Such hostility! Is this forum about XRP or about worshipping Ripple?

  16. "The real game changer would be a major clearing bank such as Citigroup opting to use xRapid. That would send shock waves across the financial world."
  17. One side has a mountain of evidence, the other has a random forum user assuring is it will be fine based on his say so. Meanwhile, the Tether premium is over 3% today. http://www.untether.space/ Plikk, if you truly believe everything is fine and this is all fud, you can instantly gain 3% net worth. Exchange your USD for USDT, then cash out from bitfinex. Show us how safe it is.
  18. This is great news, and is what I expected. Ripple has become too powerful to take down, so they'll make a few concessions instead.
  19. The crypto market is heavily manipulated by stablecoins and pump & dumps, price seems arbitrary right now. If there's ever any regulation we can start predicting price.
  20. Last year everyone here thought it would be worth at least $10 by now.
  21. The tether risk premium is now over 5%, nearing 6%.I believe this is the highest it's been.
  22. A useful tool for tracking the Tether Risk Premium: http://www.untether.space/ Yesterday it cracked 2%, today it's jumped over 3%. What % do you panic at?
