"goddamnedtwisto" (not his real name) is banned from the isle of wight for trying to overthrow the democratically elected mps there to set up bradley from s club 7 (now s club 3) as the island's new communist dictator. think about that when reading his posts

On the one hand, banning these dudes would probably validate them

But on the other hand, they're soooooooooooo mad that the /r/bitcoin mods won't do anything about "the constant brigading from /r/buttcoin" that banning them all and reporting them for brigading would be loving hysterical and it'd spin them up so bad.

filing a trademark and then using that to seize their domain would be funny, but then it would require an irl name and irl address on the tm database for any crazy to see. unless the trademark is put under another entity but this takes effort.


i decided to do a search on the uspto as it's been a while. i like how a canadian firm is trying to register the word mark "CERTIFIED BITCOIN EXPERT" and "CERTIFIED BITCOIN PROFESSIONAL" (86412575 and 86412567 respectively)



"certifying individuals and organizations as having met the applicant's standards for providing information, professional services, and advice in connection with bitcoin technology."

once they've been published if someone informs /r/bitcoin that they are trying to regulate these terms at least one of them will spend irl money opposing the applications.

wasn't one of them supposed to be the actual target plus "a bunch of people they lived with"? because the hitman was too incompetent to get a clean kill on its own trying to scam more money for more "kills"

that article still only mentions the two jobs we knew about but doesn't give details of the other 4 people
