The propaganda is that BitcoinXT is simply about increasing the block size. That is dangerously deceptive nonsense, simply a tool for dividing the community and giving the appearance of legitimate debate. It takes way more effort to clear up BS than it does to spread it. This is my & a co-author’s small contribution to help start the process of untangling the web of misinformation out there. Hopefully someone else can write up a coherent summary of it all. Failure to do so puts the future of Bitcoin in jeopardy in a very real, non-FUD way.
