Faced With Criticism IOTA Fans Try to Bully Growing List of Detractors
The accusations of FUD, #fakenews and similar terms are unfortunately all too common in the world of crypto. Field start-ups are often run by young people, sometimes bringing a new perspective and a new attitude, but some seem to lack the maturity needed to run a public company. In the case of IOTA, this is exacerbated by the sycophants that allow this situation and rather attack critics than having an adult discussion.
Rather than thinking about the behavior that put them in hot water, the IOTA promoters seem to double. They embraced an "us against them" mentality, where any reporter asking questions, any developer opposing their non-blockchain solution, and even former investors who complain about their Stolen are all seen only as enemies attacking the group.
Here's how an IOTA blogger described it today: "We decided to launch an anti-misinformation report that goes out every day if possible. A group of people are ready to help me with that. The reports will include timestamps, tweets, sources, names of "attackers" and the FUD explained and corrected. "Although this approach may intimidate some, it can not silence everyone in an ecosystem, judgment is necessary."
