@riprowan @seweso @drwasho That’s a meta issue, though - if you don’t agree with the consensus rules, you aren’t running Core.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to riprowan

@riprowan @seweso @drwasho There is no technical reason that guarantees chain convergence. This is a classic “freedom vs safety” argument.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to riprowan

@riprowan @seweso @drwasho With Core, every node will reject excessive blocks and miners get forked off the main chain.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to riprowan

@deadalnix @seweso @drwasho Indeed - I think we can all agree that the market will prevail in the sense that it will choose the rule system.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to deadalnix

@riprowan @seweso @drwasho Unfortunately not: miners can either blow past your EB limit or if your AD is huge, fork you off the main chain.
