    Yeah Paul was always fairly clear about the differences. Unfortunately a lot of misinformation and/or disinformation was generated around it. Cheery picking quotes and removing the full context. Confusion between book holdings and book-entry. So glad not everyone fell for it though!

      Thanks for your efforts to spread the good word about it and clear things up in those intentionally muddied waters bibic.

      Those of us who followed you all who were pushing for clarity and transpaeency here owe you a debt.

        The beauty of it all is that we don’t want to be owed anything, we feel like transparency and knowledge is what everyone deserves!

        Definitely glad to have found a growing group that feels the same 😊

          The people who are genuinely trying to do the right things for the right reasons rarely want adulation for it. That’s one of the signs to look for imo.

          So thanks all the same and keep digging and keep separating the wheat from the chaff and I’ll do the same. It is appreciated.

          I feel we’ve gotta protect all of these dissident voices seeking the truth and questioning the “experts” in all aspects of society so we don’t lose the propaganda war to the centralized cartels that have arisen while most were distracted with the lie of the “free” market and the American dream.

          Cue that Carlin quote everyone keeps reposting, and for good reason. .

            For sure. And thank you for the kind words!

            Definitely need to protect critical thinking even if it’s being critical of us.

            As for the Carlin quote, some one once told me cliches are cliche for a reason 😉
