Subject: 2X Fork is Dangerous

Hello. I use your phone app as my wallet and your bitpay card to pay merchants in USD. I really wish to continue using your services , and want you to strongly consider withdrawing from the Segwit2X agreement. The 2x proposal, in its current form, does not offer proper replay protection and, if implemented as such, would be very dangerous to users of either chain. Please either demand the proper protection be put in place prior to the November fork, or withdraw from the NYA/Segwit2X agreement.

Regards, V****

You know what, I said it was dangerous to users of both chains but really it's only dangerous to users of the legacy chain. I don't think it's ethical to FORCE users onto the new chain for fear of loosing coins.

That, coupled with the new Segwit2X chain NOT having core dev support, it why I plead with you not to support the Segwit2X fork.

Regards, V****

My name's not Chris****, but I see how well comments like mine are received (with a canned response). There aren't even comments enabled on that blog post, no opinions wanted.

I'll have to take my business elsewhere.

Regards, V****
