Removing This Stupid Graph

I have removed all links to this file. Please do not put them back. This graph has convinced people that the last mined reward will be in 2033 or so, when that is completely incorrect. Thanks. Midnightmagic (talk) 01:54, 12 January 2014 (GMT)

What I wouldn't delete out of reflex because of the huge amount of PR and fact-correction I've personally been forced to do as a result of this stupid thing, would be a graph which shows a comparison line that describes compression of the release schedule due to hashrate growth so far, as well as reasonably expected growth into the 2100s. Ideally, events such as 'last Satoshi mined' and "if past growth continues, here is where we will be using the entire energy output of the Earth to sustain bitcoin mining" should be notated with an arrow, and the volume line should not abruptly end at any point prior.
