Why I am Very Disappointed by the Upcoming V8 Removal of the Magnitude Component of the Gridcoin Staking Weight

I'm not sure adding notifications is a good idea. This used to be in Bitcoin and it was removed because who should have the rights to send the messages? What happens when a developer leaves and spams the message system?

We could potentially create a github repo from which the gridcoin client scrapes news, but as you say it's a centralized solution which could be exploited if the responsible accounts were hacked. Nobody wants malware attempts directly within the gridcoin client, it's far safer to subscribe to traditional Gridcoin channels such as Twitter, Steemit, Cryptocointalk, Slack, etc.

Very good point @bullshark, blast it. Look at what recently happened, ugh.

Hmm, only way to correct for that then would be to have a rotating body of three, each one of the three can initiate a message, but the other two must also approve it before it is sent. Limit them to sitting in that triad for a period of time before they must be replaced and may not sit again for a period of three times as long.

If you wish me to go thru that again, you should know I'm not shy about it. An exploit was utilized by Tomas Brod to inject superblocks during the one millionth block celebration, turning it into "The One Million Block Exploit".
