Look at Ethereum classic. There was an initial scare and "OMG this is why Bitcoin can't use a HF!" But look at it now… It's its own altcoin now. Nothing more than the other dozens. If it's successful it's successful so what but Ethereum is still going strong (relative to how it was before the multiple forks). I despise the rbtc crowd but I hate to say it core seems annoyed and bothered THEIR idea didn't get consensus with 0 will to compromise to what I consider a perfectly fair compromise a 1mb increase as a HF. Ffs put the egos aside and compromise dammit.
Probably will get downvoted to hell but please try and post constructive criticism. I'm tired of rant and rage name calling comments about one side or the other. This doesn't do anyone any good. It just creates more noise as more noobs choose a side not knowing anything really technical about the debate.
TLDR: despite the initial HF scare around Ethereum. The majority was in favor of the HF and because of that Ethereum classic is nothing more than one of the other hundreds of altcoins. If 95% can compromise to a 2mb +segwit HF why not?
