I'd suggest you do more research into how Bitcoin and mining works as the above has a number of serious misunderstandings.
Or, I could just point out the obvious rather than try to be polite: you know exactly why the above makes no sense as a reply to this thread and are deliberately lying.
If the situation is the latter, your conduct is toxic to the development mailing list discussion, not to mention a waste of all our time, and you should leave.
