You're such an asshole. Daniel's actual statement was simply: >> I know of no protocol for transfering blinded tokens with a receipt, but I >> do not rule out the possibility of its existence. This is what you characterized as a "unitary global claim". Aside from the fact that "unitary" is meaningless in this context, his claim was far from "global". Instead it was a very modest statement about what aspects of the technology he was familiar with, and explicitly admitted the possibility that he might be mistaken. I don't think you could ask for anything more in a world where no one has perfect knowledge about any topic. While Daniel Nagy has been a model of politeness and modesty in his claims here, you have reverted to your usual role as an arrogant bully. If Daniel's project should be successful then you will undoubtedly switch over to your other mode of communication, obsequious ass-kissing. I have experienced both from you, in my many names and roles, and I have no taste for either one. I would encourage Daniel not to waste any more time interacting with Hettinga. CP
