I 'aint no self-appointed moderator of this list and I do find the 
subject of economics terribly interesting, but maybe it would make sense 
to willfully confine the scope of our discussion of Bitcoin and other 
virtual currencies to the crypto side of it.

This list's previous incarnation had high quality posts but it seems we 
burned out the moderator. Perhaps if we keep the discussion well focused 
we won't bury the expert crypto discussion and we'll even attract more 

There are certainly many forums where the economic side of Bitcoin and 
the housing market is being debated with gusto, but very few places to 
get into the bits-and-bytes of crypto theory and implementation.

Alternative opinions and chirping crickets both welcome.
