Is it time to put limit of max 99 active Bitcoin topics?

Post by wrongfunds » Sun Dec 03, 2017 7:35 pm

This is getting patently ridiculous. I think the time has come to add Bitcoin to the list of unmentionables aka similar to politics and pending legislation.

No, Like the Dot Com bubble I want to see it to go to nothing and hear them all say "O CRAP"

If you feel they are retreading the same topics as already covered before, use the exclamation point icon at the top right of the post to flag it as a duplicate topic for the admins.

If you just don't like the topic, ignore it. I'm not a fan of precious metal investing, but I just ignore any posts about the current price of gold / silver / etc.

There's a strong political component to Bitcoin that can't be discussed here, and IMO not discussing it means missing most of the point. But the same can be said about gold.

The sheer number of Bitcoin threads on BH is itself overwhelming evidence of a massive bubble.

Until the site owners change what's allowed in this forum, Bitcoins will remain a valid investing topic.

Bear in mind we've had similar requests for:
- Personal Consumer Issues Forum / Car Purchase Threads (Mar 21, 2014)
- Need a new sub-forum for guns? (Mar 21, 2015)
