Some odds and ends.
(1) I’m really pleased with the level of scrutiny you guys are applying to our listed brokers, especially our Trusted Brokers. And I’m really impressed with the quality debate that is taking place in this thread, especially as regards Coinexx.
As Alisha2019 pointed out HERE, we need to hold our Trusted Brokers to a higher standard than brokers who have not been granted that designation. I’ve said before, and I’ll repeat it here,
- Trusted broker status should not be a “lifetime appointment”. A broker who deserves this designation must continue to deserve it in the future, in order to retain the designation. To the extent that it’s possible and practical, this thread should be a democracy. As such, we can vote brokers into — or out of — the trusted broker category.
(2) As for the accusation that James (SmallPaul) has been unfairly attacking Coinexx over withdrawal issues, I disagree with that accusation. James is doing a great service here, keeping our brokers honest.
(3) Speaking of (real) first names, I’m glad to know how to address SmallPaul on a personal basis. And I would be glad to know the first names of the rest of our frequent participants. No need to do surnames, unless you want to. As you may have noticed, ever since getting on the internet more than 15 years ago, I have been careful to not reveal my surname. And I will continue with that policy.
So, HyperScalper (and others), are there more friendly names we can know you by?
(4) I watched with interest as the EU failed to begin the previously-scheduled consideration of admitting Macedonia (and Albania) into their union. (Regarding Macedonia, the EU uses the politically-correct name North Macedonia, so as not to offend the Greeks.) Apparently, French President Macron is responsible for scuttling the long process of considering those two countries for “accession”, as they call it, into the EU.
The issue for us is that admission into the EU would subject Macedonia to EU laws and regulations, including the BS emanating from ESMA. That could spell the end for U.S. clients at our Trusted Broker LMFX. For now, it appears that it will be a very long time before the EU shuts off our access to LMFX.
But, we need to continue our vigilance, as we eye these One-World-Government globalists with the suspicion they have earned.
