I keep seeing various people in /r/btc keep saying "Why keep posting about how Blockstream took over BTC? We get it."

Because if people stop posting it, then people forget.

Agreed. A periodic history lesson repost is neccessary. Never forget why BTC was crippled.

Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Blockstream doesn't matter... BTC doesn't matter. It's important to make BCH better.

They do matter a lot. Blockstream still controls /r/Bitcoin and bitcointalk.org and the bitcoin repository. BTC is still the #1 by marketcap. Also, they are attacking BCH constantly.
replied 346d
Attacks might just be a response to /r/btc from their perspective - not everyone in BCH is a saint - Blockstream investors are mad; they literally lost millions of dollars
replied 346d
Also, I can't subscribe to the idea that Blockstream has investors (outside of 1-2 insignificantly small ones). These are enablers and BSCore was never intended to make money.

It's been 5 years now and Blockstream achieved only 1 thing, they hijacked and ruined BTC.

Any sane investor would have exited about 2 years ago.

They only matter if you want it so - bitcoin.com is pro Bitcoin Cash - @Bitcoin is pro Bitcoin Cash - Gavin Andresen is pro Bitcoin Cash
replied 346d
Gavin basically disappeared and outside of a couple of endorsements he did not stand behind BCH (which is a huge disappointment imo).

Forgetting about them is good. It's important to learn from past mistakes and move on - /r/btc sub looks desperate - like /r/bitcoin's jealous ex-girlfriend - I prefer /r/bitcoincash
replied 346d
I don't think that /r/btc looks desperate. Literally, it's the only crypto sub which is not being manipulated by mods and/or censored.

Often because someone vets a ban from r/Butcoin and learns what is going on for the first time.
