BingoBoingo mircea_popescu: I saw and was saddened.
mircea_popescu people can't think. Anyway, I won't touch it now, so I guess time for publishin' archives.
So here we go :
**** BEGIN LOGGING AT Tue Apr 22 12:18:41 2014
Apr 22 12:18:41 rabite yes hello weev here
Apr 22 12:18:57 rabite all my shells are banned from this network
Apr 22 12:19:50 mircea_popescu heya
Apr 22 12:19:55 mircea_popescu that's nuts.
Apr 22 12:20:03 mircea_popescu you can use tor, of course.
Apr 22 12:20:23 rabite they ban all my shells but not tor? crazy
Apr 22 12:20:36 mircea_popescu which is why i said. but no, many people in chan are on tor/sasl.
Apr 22 12:20:40 mircea_popescu anyway, do you know who i am ?
Apr 22 12:20:55 rabite not really
Apr 22 12:21:04 mircea_popescu okay. i run this thing : http://mpex.co/
Apr 22 12:21:12 mircea_popescu it's named after me.
Apr 22 12:21:28 mircea_popescu it's a stock exchange, bitcoin's equiv of the nyse. so far in its history it has seen ipos worth > 10k btc,
Apr 22 12:21:43 mircea_popescu it's traded something like 1.25mn btc worth of notional btc/usd derivative exposure
Apr 22 12:21:45 mircea_popescu and so forth.
Apr 22 12:21:54 rabite thats pretty rad dude
Apr 22 12:22:00 mircea_popescu i am, for your purposes, jpm, citi and everyone else rolled into one.
Apr 22 12:22:16 mircea_popescu now, about your hedge fund intel thing ?
Apr 22 12:23:00 rabite yes i am not ready to make an offering yet, just got out of prison obviously, still have to get the legal stuff worked out
Apr 22 12:23:32 mircea_popescu that's less the concern. more's the concern, what exactly the fuck is it supposed to be ?
Apr 22 12:23:55 rabite i have, more than once, shifted the market capitalization of publicly traded corporations by the billions
Apr 22 12:23:56 rabite so
Apr 22 12:24:12 rabite i am going to continue doing that and profit in positions of leveraged put options
Apr 22 12:24:13 rabite while i do that
Apr 22 12:24:42 mircea_popescu yes, but have you shifted it by publishing legit info they kept secret,
Apr 22 12:24:47 mircea_popescu or by being an asshole ?
Apr 22 12:24:56 rabite a little of column A, a little of column B.
Apr 22 12:25:05 mircea_popescu can you stick to column a ?
Apr 22 12:25:26 rabite unfortunately, I have a/b tested this extensively
Apr 22 12:25:44 rabite there are thousands of people releasing disclosures about issues in software
Apr 22 12:25:48 rabite none of them have moved markets
Apr 22 12:25:59 mircea_popescu the problem is this : i can support you, and i can help you build this thing into a reference point for the history of the western world, like say arrington's shit was at some point.
Apr 22 12:26:06 rabite I move markets because the manner and tone surrounding my disclosures is aggressive
Apr 22 12:26:16 mircea_popescu not so much if it's conclusively shown to be a fud&shilling campaign based on nothing
Apr 22 12:26:22 mircea_popescu tone i don't care about.
Apr 22 12:26:23 rabite oh
Apr 22 12:26:27 rabite its not based on nothing
Apr 22 12:26:29 rabite its always truthful
Apr 22 12:26:31 mircea_popescu understand what i mean by asshole.
Apr 22 12:26:35 rabite but I am still a dick about it.
Apr 22 12:26:45 mircea_popescu you have not, i imagine, read anything by mpoe-pr ?
Apr 22 12:26:55 rabite no
Apr 22 12:27:00 mircea_popescu maybe google her sometime.
Apr 22 12:27:09 mircea_popescu dominated the bitcoin forums for years, doing exactly that.
Apr 22 12:27:20 mircea_popescu i've recently retired her through the process of telling their main mod "fuck you"
Apr 22 12:27:48 mircea_popescu https://bitcointa.lk/threads/maged-permabanned-mpoe-pr-because-she-swore-shock.292615/
Apr 22 12:29:02 rabite okay
Apr 22 12:29:06 mircea_popescu and yes, i have sunk companies. look in the neobee thread. these fuckwits raised 10k btc, bought advertising for it (at ratecard prices) and disintegrated.
Apr 22 12:29:28 mircea_popescu she sunk pirate, she sunk a number of crapola. so basically, i've been doing what you propose to do, except for btc, and for years.
Apr 22 12:29:34 mircea_popescu i defo want to see this done for fiat.
Apr 22 12:29:36 rabite yeah
Apr 22 12:29:46 rabite the btc market is definitely ripe for manipulation
Apr 22 12:29:48 rabite no doubt about it
Apr 22 12:30:12 mircea_popescu okay. so now, do me a favour, get a (WORKING!) tor relay and get registered with gribble so you're in the wot
Apr 22 12:30:26 mircea_popescu i'll rate you and that will allow you to voice yourself in #bitcoin-assets
Apr 22 12:30:32 mircea_popescu people WILL ask you to prove you're you.
Apr 22 12:30:53 mircea_popescu after this, the rest will fall in place.
Apr 22 12:30:59 rabite okay
Apr 22 12:31:24 mircea_popescu i'm here almost every day, and you're high enough on my lists, so. drop a line whenever.
Apr 22 12:31:36 rabite will do
Apr 22 22:05:43 * rabite has quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
And that was exactly the last I've heard of the guy. Which is not how you behave. Irrespective of how cool you think you are for whatever uninteresting reasons.
