How many clients actually evict transactions from their mempool currently? If
the backlog grows infinitely (as a result of more in than out), that would be
How many wallets re-transmit their transaction when your local full nodes
mempool no longer has it? Problem.
What will the backlash be when people here that are pushing for "off-chain-
transactions" fail to produce a properly working alternative, which
essentially means we have to say NO to more users. We can't service you,
sorry. Please go away.
At this time and this size of bitcoin community, my personal experience (and
I've been part of many communities) saying NO to new customers will kill the
product totally. Or, if we are lucky, just make an altcoin that quickly
becomes the de-facto standard.
