A malicious and destructive fork

BCH is having another go at dethroning Bitcoin. It started a few hours ago, same tactic as before, pump their coin over a few days, use their Chinese mining buddies at Antpool and associated pools to exclusively mine BCH all around the time there is a difficulty adjustment for BTC. It's no secret, they have admitted its part of a plan.

Last time they attempted to tank BTC it was their investors/supporters that lost out. This is not about scaling or the ideology behind Satoshi's vision, its about greed, power and revenge. This useless, irresponsible game of thrones is pulling this space down deeper into the gutter.. how are we going to attract the confidence and trust of newcomers with this sort of nonsense going on? As members of this space we all have an obligation to each other to keep it self regulated, act in a mature responsible manner, to call out bad actors and to protest against their corrupt actions and lack of ethics.

I am calling out Bitcoin Cash as a malicious fork with the sole aspiration to topple BTC and to steal its brand and market. Many of the people behind BCH are people of ill repute and the chinese mining cartel, owned by Bitmain, all are out to achieve their own agendas and they care less about the BCH community.

They have pumped their coin a number of times and each time loyal supporters have contributed on the basis of helping the 'cause' only to loose money when the pump is over. BCH is a disgrace to the entire crypto-currency community.
