Sorry, I probably should have done something like clarify that "any" 
with "any leading".  Also, the more restricted the currency is (i.e. the 
faster it will increase in value), the better chance it will have of 
becoming the leading currency, but of course, this is not all that is 
required to become the leader.  Currently Gold is expanding much faster 
than Bitcoins, and why I am predicting that Gold's days are completely 
numbered, and will soon be completely replaced by Bitcoin, this being 
the most important reason.  The 100% line camp is predicting all 
Bitcions will be worth more than all gold

Good to know.  In my opinion, the history of Bitcoin, as shown in the 
graph in the camp:


is already more consistent than "More's law" ever actually achieved.  If 
you don't agree, how much more of that kind of growth would be required, 
before you would give this kind of "law" as much respect as it has in a 
term like "Moore's law"?

That's what I think, yes.  I think we are always in agreement with the 
facts, I'm obviously just spinning the fact one way, and in my mind you 
are spinning them another way, and I see the truth somewhere in the 
middle.  It is a fact that at least some people get so tired of the 
wasteful, repetative, bleating noise, posting things in forums, over and 
over again, and so desperately both want to know what all that noise is 
trying to say and what it thinks, concicely and quantitatively, along 
with wanting to comunicate what they believe they know, they are willing 
to spend their life doing everything they can to create something like 
Canonizer.com, to facilitate that.  One person can't do it all!  
Thankfully, there are at least a few others, you included, willing to at 
least help with that effort, for the same reason.  While others seem to 
care less, especially about what others think, and would rather 
completely sensor and destroy it, than try to do anything to make any 
effort to improve it in any way or do something like canonize it.  And 
yes, it seems to me that the better and more important the camp, the 
more people there tend to be that are willing to do whatever is required 
to work to build consensus around it, including help to improve the 
system to make it easier for both themselves, and everyone else.
