Ok, Normally I would keep my opinions to myself just like I have done for over a year now. But in this case I will present some arguments since I did watched this "debate" of Roger Ver vs Tone Vays and I got annoyed by it:

1.- The argument about being first giving you more of a moral right over Bitcoin direction is a weird one from Ver. He does realizes that based on that argument alone both Theymos opinions and mine would then beat his opinion right? Theymos was into bitcoin by mid 2009. I first read about Bitcoin late 2009 and got into it during 2010. It is weird argument to make because that don't really matters at all.

2.- antpool and f2pool continue to mine blocks with a single transaction several times a week. This recent spam attack was cleared thanks to Bitfury actions. Bitfury can now pack 3K+ transactions in a block. If all pools started properly mining fully packed up blocks like Bitfury does. Then there would no delay problems 99% of the time even with how things are right now. It would also decrease the fees. But, I don't see anyone commenting and condemning such hazardous behavior enough either. Or the fact that even if you raised the blocksize to 2mb, such behaviour would still be a big problem.

3.- While Theymos has gone further than just moderating, it is still not censorship. In this is case it would be Curation. I know very well the difference since I manage The Google+ Bitcoin Community and The Facebook Bitcoin Group. Of which Roger Ver is a member of too. But even then what matters is the context. Reddit is Subject-based venue centric. User profiles are just a matter of archive, not a prime imperative interactive stream. That's the kicker. There cannot be such thing as Censorship on /r/Bitcoin or BitcoinTalk. There is curation, but that is the admin prerogative and right over its members. It would only be censorship if it was like Twitter or Facebook that are profile stream centric. Removing posts would then indeed be censorship, intrusion and subversion. This is not /r/bitcoin or BitcoinTalk case. Roger&Co just don't want to recognize there is an immense contextual, format and setup derived difference.

4.- The bitcoin community didn't just turned their back on Mike Hearn and Gavin Andresen. It was not sudden and it had a lot of reasons.

5.- Roger likes to say how Satoshi left Core maintaining to Gavin so everyone should heed Gavin advice. Well, Gavin gave up his position to Wladimir. Same point would apply then.
