I really hate to have to pull a Giacomo here. Giacomo, of course, is the infamous Bitcoin Maximalist who declared that "Everyone who disagrees with me is either stupid or malicious!" I certainly don't believe that. I'm sure there are plenty of thoughtful people who disagree with me for honest reasons. Unfortunately, there are very few of them in the BSV community. Allow me to share a tweet of mine from August of last year.
Now a plain English reading of the tweet would suggest that:
1) I believe the bottleneck at 22 MB is a software bottleneck, not a protocol bottleneck.
2) The bottleneck is fixable with changes to the software and we can indeed increase the size of the blocks beyond 22 MB.
And I would also suggest:
3) The 22 MB is referring to sustained load not one off blocks.
Number three might not be as obvious but if you have any familiarity with the gigablock testnet that I was referencing you would know that it tested sustained load and not one off blocks.
Now would you believe it that not a week goes by without the BSV people sharing screen caps of this tweet while claiming I said >22 MB blocks are "impossible"? So obviously, I don't know what I'm taking about since BSV has produced one off blocks larger than 22 MB. In fact a week may be too generous. It's actually approaching once per day.
And it's not just the plain English reading of my tweet, but it's also the context. The BSV people were demanding the BCH blocksize be raised to 128 MB RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
At a time when BCH was using less than one third of one percent of the existing 32 MB capacity. I was arguing that there is no urgency, especially when the empirical research suggests the software cannot yet handle blocks of the size they wanted and that raising the limit to that level would be unsafe. A sentiment confirmed by the fact that BSV suffered a six block reorg on their mainnet while trying to push blocks up to this size. Doh!
So I really can only conclude stupidity or malice here. Seems likely they started out with stupidity. Someone read my tweet, completely failed to comprehend the plain English meaning of it and started sharing it around to try to make a political point. Other stupid people in their community saw the tweet, and likewise failed to understand the plain English meaning of it and also shared it.
But now that I have repeatedly corrected them publicly dozens of times and without any ambiguity, the fact that they continue to share it on a near daily basis leads me to conclude now they are just acting with malice.
And unfortunately it seems to me like this is the majority of their community doing this. Which is rather sad.
