This topic acts as an example for my post in Discussion about acceptable and unacceptable behavior. Community values. DT , after reading this:

Posting an unpopular opinion.
Recently, I saw bestmixer's trust :
User Bestmixer received 3 tags (on the same day) for something he wrote at the end of November.
I must admit I don't know the details of CoinJoin and Wasabi Wallet, but I don't think that's even relevant. This user was asked about Wasabi Wallet (including link to their website) in his own topic, and gave his opinion :
Quote: from: bestmixer on November 30, 2018, 01:49:26 PM We believe that this method of mixing is a ' failure '.
The main problem of Wasabiwąllet is that EVERYONE knows the incoming address and EVERYONE knows the receiving addresses.

7 weeks later, he got -8 : - 3 / +0 . I feel like I must have missed something, but all Reference links point at this post.
Bestmixer's post was a response to a (now deleted) post from Crypto Carabao Group . From my own archives (November 30, 2018, 4:16 AM Dutch time):
Code: Crypto Carabao Group
How is your service better than ?

Is it just because it can also mix shitcoins?

Are there also real-time statistics anywhere about how many BTC BestMixer has mixed so far?

Is it also non-custodial like wasabi?

Is yours also open-source code?
If not, how can we be sure that you are not just a honeypot of the chainalysis companies? Just trust?

This post was made before vs. Wasabi wallet was opened. I read that post in November, and it sounded quite hostile (please read the raw HTML, last line within the code tags).
Not much more happened in that topic, I'll give a short summary of the next page: another user continues about Wasabi wallet in Bestmixer's topic (and even offers him a job ), followed by TheNewAnon135246 (who left red trust on the same day) saying he's a highly respected developer, followed by Bestmixer saying it's unacceptable advertising in his thread .
The response from bestmixer may or may not be true, but I don't think it justifies red tags. Especially after "unsolicited advertising" in his own topic. It looks like someone was looking for a fight, and it's not Bestmixer.
No spam....
