Fair enough. But I'd add that in a free market system, companies which prejudicially discriminate are at a competitive disadvantage to those which don't.
That doesn't make discrimination go away, but I believe market forces are the most efficient and therefore most effective process to fight dis...

Rox need to land a big upgrade of a stretch 4 and they'll be a better team than last year. Last years team was full of redundancies and lacked perimeter defense

It could be good for them. But it's a big gamble that he gets that much better. He was pretty bad on D last year and he's never been great at free throws, which might indicate a ceiling on his jump shot. ...

There are other posters who could explain it much better than I can, but basically the transactional security of Bitcoin lies in the transparency. If vendors go around screwing everyone, they will lose credibility.
Just like low rated people or businesses on eBay, you wouldn't touch them with a ...

You seem like a nice guy, but you're being very condescending while passing judgment on something you obviously don't understand.
Just because it looks like a Ponzi scheme to you doesn't actually prove anything. And harping on another poster's age doesn't disprove anything he's said.
