As the drums of war thunder louder and louder, USGavin's effort to frame objection to the blocksize increase as coming from a tiny minority continues. But what must one do when evidence to the contrary begins to appear on outlets for your propaganda such as reddit's /r/bitcoin? What if this evidence clearly depicted that not only is there a debate to be had, but that this "tiny minority" is in fact anything but small. What would you do as it becomes increasingly apparent that it's going to be a struggle to continue to toe the "tiny minority" line unless action is taken?
Well, you might start by having the vote and comment count on submissions to /r/bitcoin which challenge your narrative altered in such a way to reflect that no debate or discussion had taken place. For example, the Hard Fork Missle Crisis article – which reached the near top of /r/bitcoin by attracting hundreds of comments and hundreds of upvotes of which many were in agreement that increasing the blocksize limit is the wrong move – has been altered in an attempt to show anyone taking a cursory look at the headline that it failed to attract anything more than a couple of upvotes and comments.
That that article attracted far more attention than USGavin is willing to concede and as a result of this, a need to tamper with the vote and comment count took place is irrefutable evidence that USGavin is in fact on the losing side of the debate. Such tampering would only occur if someone had the intention to continue saying – Look! There is no debate to be had! We are all in agreement to increase the blocksize limit!
Sorry USGavin, hundreds of upvotes, comments, discussion and increasing traffic is not coming from a tiny minority but a growing number of people concerned you will continue in your attempt to bring your bull into a china shop you don't even own.
