Not available?  WTF?  See https://bitcoin.org/en/development and "Development discussion takes place on GitHub and the bitcoin-development mailing list at sourceforge."  The mailing list is publicly archived and searchable.

I suppose we could move all development discussion here to your personal blog to make it more public to you, personally....

+Jeff Weiss Choosing a type of bloom filter to implement is a design proposal.

Shutting down Bitcoin and replacing it with something completely different is not even in the same order of magnitude.

The real problem here is that someone with as much experience as Mike Hearn can even suggest such a thing and expect to be taken seriously.

Stop with the lockdowns already...
When I was in school, the Big Bad Boogey-Man was Russia, and we were afraid of nuclear war. I remember "duck and cover" drills in school, in case of nuclear attack. Looking back, wasn't that unnecessary fear-mongering? And not just because there didn't happ...

One day when I have a child, I'm going to sit my wife down and tell her; I'm going to die, you're going to die... this little guy is going to die, and GOD willingly we don't live to see it. But he is going to die and one of the best things we can do for him is give him a chance to live between now and then!

The bitcoin-development mailing list is hardly "an obscure corner of the Internet."

Please stop FUD'ing.

hey man
how about those coins which are lost in the network?...they are like been shot into infinite space without any chance of being used again
you guys can solve that
you can use time-stamp to solve this problem
inform the public before hand so that they can sync their wallet andget their current coins time stmaped and new coins will be already time stamped
time stamping would mean that network will check what's the last time the wallet was in touch with network(OR successfully opened by user). If it was say more than 5yrs then it would get destroyed.
wallet does have to resurface to network to get checked that they are more than 5yrs old. The blockchain would have info about the time-stamp of wallets and it would destroy any 5yrs old coin and it would be minable again.
This would solve the increasing decrease of bitcoin supply as with coins getting lost, the ultimate circulation of bitcoin would be way less than 21 million.
