Who is our control group? I can think about two candidates:
David Gerard (RW admin) writes articles about how you can’t actually sell Bitcoins, and those articles get highly upvoted on Hacker News. I would take that as a weak evidence he doesn’t have any.
2) Logic Nation
Athene (some guy who tried some weird financial scheme on LW, and then started his own cult) is selling his own cryptocurrency (actually, two of them; you can use the former to buy the latter).
Seems to me that Less Wrong is somethere in the middle. I guess that makes us merely average weirdoes.
