Why should we give free promotion to these evil companies? Do you promote Blockstream on BITMAIN”s website? It’s not censorship, it’s freedom, to be able to decide what services to promote or not. We should not be forced to list these services that attack Bitcoin.

“Why we should be free to promote these companies, they are evil. You advertise Blockstream on the Bitmain website? This is not censorship, and freedom to decide what resource to promote, and what — not. No one should force us to include the listing of resources, attacking bitcoin”retorted Cobra, when Wu was asked whether he was responsible for this “act of censorship”.
