Do you realize how bad of an argument this is?

Vitalik originally wanted to build Ethereum on Bitcoin but was turned away. Now, Ethereum handles significantly more transactions than Bitcoin every single day. - Because it can.

When blocks get full, that doesn't mean throughput increases. That just means transactions go in a queue. This doesn't solve any problems, because the throughput never increased. You literally just wait for people to leave your platform.

You can do mental gymnastics to justify how this is a good thing, or justify that an increase in blocksize leads to centralization (oof, this argument just leads to moving the goalposts on "decentralized" lately), but at the end of the day you still have lost significant amounts of ecosystem development (which later turns into more eyes onto scaling) by choosing the magic number of a 1mb blocksize.

Anyways, that's just my rant in one place so I can refer to it next time I see one of those posts. We all know the real reason they don't increase the blocksize is because they can't hardfork, but if you put it that way it just sounds like Bitcoin (Core) is really stuck in general.
