my opinion on Sigwit2
« on: October 12, 2017, 10:14:24 AM »
It is no so much that users are against larger blocks and lower fees but rather they are against the way that the fork was planned and is happening. The fork was planned without users or developers participating in the discussion. They were not invited to the agreement signing nor were they consulted in writing the agreement. Furthermore, the fork is not even well defined with a technical specification even though it is only a month away from activating. Users are opposed to the segwit2x fork more because it represents centralization and something similar to a corporate takeover of Bitcoin. And of course, some are opposing it because they follow the Bitcoin Core developers who are opposing it for a variety of technical reasons too.

Additionally, users who wish to run full nodes may not be able to with larger blocks and thus are likely to oppose the fork.
