It's a payment method - that takes 10 minutes+ to confirm a transaction.
It's a stock - that has crashed at least 3 times, losing 50%+ of its value each time.
It's a currency - backed by nothing and no one.

These libertarian types support it for the anonymity, low transaction fees, and 'be your own bank' crap, but those benefits disappear the minute you start addressing the problems.

Oh and just for giggles, have some charts with zero comment:

Its decentralized, very low transaction fee and peer-to-peer features are actually the reason why people adopt bitcoin. We should consider these features as good things because the freedom of using this cryptocurrency depends on us, but of course, we must use it responsibly. For instance, while using it for online gambling, we must not wager more than we can afford to lose.

Well, they've done a cracking job of that so far; the primary markets for bitcoin being child porn and drugs.

Yep. The whole thing sounds like a sales spiel. "We must not wager more than we can afford to lose" is the line that made me go "hmmmmmm....."

It is a sales spiel, a cursory google brings up other forum posts about a bitcoin gambling site (™). It's even in his signature, he just forgot to attach the thing.
