The USG, fiat aligned, domain squatters at Bitcoin.org are hyping a supposed "network disruption" which they hope will follow their latest effort to fork away from actual Bitcoin. The effort fronted by known sleeze Luke-jr (WOT:luke-jr) has been dubbed by the social engineers a "User Activated Soft Fork", and in this scheme the vermin attacking Bitcoin are attempting to dupe would be Bitcoin users into running their software instead of an actual Bitcoin node. The idea is that by creating the impression of easily faked support, the social engineers may bully miners into accepting a forking away from Bitcoin and into something lesser.
This effort, supported almost entirely by assorted USG stoolies and assorted single language anglophone social engineering victims, is the most transparently desperate effort so far to undermine Bitcoin by imposing governance outside of The Most Serene Republic. It remains to be seen how many persons supposing themselves involved in Bitcoin will be victimized by Luke-jr and his co-conspirators when this latest fork's "flag day"1 passes.
Yes, a flag day. Because desperation has lowered these pests into "throw a coordinated tantrum" as a strategic maneuver. ↩
