The following conversation brought to the fore something I’ve been ruminating on for a few months: The “Bitcoin” prefix in my handle.i While the moniker has always been a useful conversation starter for those who don’t grok Bitcoin, as well as a good indicator of what’s usually on my mind, it was starting to sound a bit… contrived.
So this is the straw that broke the camel’s back:
benkay: i think people actually sent me bitcoin to my bitbet referral addr too, bitcoin
benkay: i think people actually sent me bitcoin to my bitbet referral addr too, bitcoinpete
benkay: man you ppl gotta stop it with bitcointhis and bitcointhat
mircea_popescu: bitcoinpete 10 hits is something << ironically, if my wol comic ad campaign hit on one me that then plonked a large bitcoin stash down it’d have been worth it.
cazalla: i don’t trust people who use bitcointhis, bitcointhat for names, bitcoinpete withstanding
mircea_popescu: yeah benkay has a point. can you be something else other than bitcoinpete, bitcoinpete ? you’re driving others into sin, like rebecca the jewish irishii
bitcoinpete: she should be bitcoinbecky anyways
bitcoinpete: k fine fuck
bitcoinpete, is all his various and sundry forms, is no more.
