I think this revision by holy-fire is the best.

all it needs is a citation to the whitepaper describing the pool hopping attack and also a citation to the closing of bitpenny, which is strongly suspected, on statistical grounds, by that pool's operator, of being due to griefing (real-block withholding).

Subject to further user comments, i plan to revert the page to this revision. --Nanotube 20:25, 26 May 2011 (GMT)

  • That revision contains FUD about pool-hopping on share-based pools (it is not an attack, and is not cheating). The only time pool-hopping creates unfair rewards is when score-based pools are involved. It also discounts as a myth, the fact that share-based pools are disadvantageous to intermittent miners. --Luke-jr 20:32, 26 May 2011 (GMT)
