I revealed a state secret about Jack Fartsey!
In the USSR, a joke ran as follows: a man returns after having disappeared for 15 years. “I was in jail for calling Stalin an idiot,” he says. “That’s a long time for a joke,” a friend replies. “No, I only got one year for the joke, the other 14 were for revealing a state secret.”
Now, take this: after having read Jack Dorsey Thinks Bitcoin Can Bring ‘World Peace’ on VICE, I posted a tweet that triggered the following action:
Pray tell, which of the following applies here?
You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease.
It’s not promoting violence against anyone, it’s not a threat, nor a harassment, so I’d go for the “disability, or serious disease” part. Unless Bitcoin is officially a new religion!
But we have to protect Jack’s little disability. Or is it a serious disease? Condolences, Jack, your last neuron just died!

Now, he’s not the only retard in this game. “The B Word” thing where he expressed his fabulous views on world peace, was co-attended by Elon Musk and Cathie Wood, the latter being chief executive of Square stakeholder ARK Invest. Technically, Musk is even more retarded, so yeah, I guess my tweet was in error.
Promoting Bitcoin should be a criminal offense, but unfortunately, it isn’t.
Surprisingly or not, many people from the IT field are so dumb as to religiously believe in cryptocurrency, and especially BTC or ETH. Maybe such defective brains are the inspiration source for what they call Artificial Intelligence.
The problem with the current form of capitalism is that a number of people will make some serious money before BTC crashes. I can only hope some big names will lose big bucks in the end, but typically, it’s for the many smaller investors to pay the bill.
It’s sad to see not only that BTC is legal and traded everywhere, but even the small Stuttgart Stock Exchange (XSTU) trades an index certificate that tracks BTC/USD in EUR!
I have a feeling I know how this is going to end…
IMO, your use of swearing and words such as “retard”, and the other personal insults, detract from the interesting substantive things you say about subjects such as crypto-currency or Linux etc. Perhaps you should consider stopping the use of those words.
Sorry for asking, but are you coming from Victorian England? Have you more than seven years of age? Puritan, cancel-culture America fears words, but not guns. In America you invoke the Amendments in fancy trials, yet any cop can kill you without being indicted for murder (oh, civil rights lawsuits; anyone outside America will laugh until they die); meanwhile, you get caught for a third time with 5 grams of cocaine, you’re sentenced 25 to life. Wow, long live America! You cannot say rude words (rude by Victorian standards), but most kids age 10-13 have watched porn movies without the knowledge of their parents. I’m afraid you’re denying the reality.
— For fuck’s sake, our house is burning, let’s do something!
— George, dear, I cannot stand such words. I’ll close my ears and listen to nothing until you’ll use proper language.
This is how dinosaurs got extinct.
Now, Jack Dorsey should be in jail, and so should Elon Musk. If they’re not retards, they’re criminals, or rather organized crime. Why should we mince the words?
EDIT: It’s a cultural thing for you, I guess. Here’s an opinion by Beppe Severgnini, columnist for Corriere della Sera, in the NYT: Swearing, Italian Style:
People write or speak sentences in order to produce an effect, and the success of a sentence is measured by the degree to which the desired effect has been achieved. (SF) Rhetoric and fact are of course never the same, so in a sense the most emotional rhetoric is the least effective, arguably even if the desired effect is only inciting a riot. Dorsey is certainly an example of the modern “technocrat”, so poorly educated in basic discourse, philosophy, ethics and religion that his opinion on such matters is only comedy. Unfortunately more and more of this kind of modern comedy is Marxism simply because it’s all that’s leftover for such morally vapid minds to embrace with belief. Say what you mean… not how you feel, and your opinion will begin to matter more.
I mean to encourage you here. It may sound paradoxical, but verbal fluency is the product of many hours spent writing about nothing, just as musical fluency is the product of hours spent repeating scales. (SF)
