You're gangs of ideological nazis. Core/SmallBlockers as well as BU/BigBlockers. There's no room for 80-95% support on either side. As an occasional Redditor in /r/btc or /r/bitcoin sub, you must support everything as dictated, or you're an enemy.

Want proof? Some examples below (Try it for yourself!)

  • Tell to a group of A's that you support SegWit. Get praised – "Fully agree, it's the best and safest way to move forward. +1".
  • Tell to a group of A's that you support SegWit, but explain that you prefer SegWit in conjunction with big blocks. Get trashed – "But SegWit already is a block size increase. What else you want?"
  • Tell to a group of A's that you support SegWit, but explain that releasing it as hard fork would make more sense because it's a large-scale change, and keeping the code lightweight is to be preferred for many reasons. Get trashed – "Do you want another ETC disaster? -1"

  • Tell to a group of B's that you support bigger blocks. Get praised – "Indeed, hate those crippled maxwell shitcoins. +1".

  • Tell to a group of B's that you support bigger blocks but explain that you also support SegWit. Get trashed – "Are you insane? SegWit means miners can steal your coins with 51% attack. -1"

  • Tell to a group of B's that bigger blocks allow for more growth, but optimizing the way existing capacity is used is more important in the short-term. Get trashed – "So 100k mempool is OK to you? Do you also support high TX fees? -1"

tl;dr: So what's the "biggest issue" for this insane poster? If the division grows, Bitcoin could be rendered non-upgradable.
