Lack of BIP47 adoption shows most wallet devs cannot think for themselves, they hamper themselves by writings of those they admire who gatekeep and greedily so, and to date fail to acknowledge @SamouraiWallet's implementation already works admirably Bitcoin fixes this? Prove it!

BIP47 was adopted by "big blockers" and bcash. I imagine this is the main reason we don't see support for it with most BTC wallets today. Still that lingering "taboo". Maybe that will change when people focus on the privacy aspects of the BIP.

The real reason is that it was shunned by Maxwell & other core devs and marked as "Unanimously Discourage for implementation" in the BIP list. Subsequent developers have failed to research it for themselves.

Yes but why did they shun it? Exactly because of what @coinableS said here.

Not true. Read the mailing list. The main objections; - The notification transaction is onchain - Static notification address are a potential privacy risk - Binds sender to a specific ScriptPubKey

These were the objections, not my opinions. 1. "(ab)use the blockchain as a messaging layer" 2. "dust payments to a constantly reused address" 3. "basically what this says is that "You can only pay to person X if you use scheme Y for your own Bitcoins"

Yeah no that's literally nonsensical as arguments against the BIP. Either they didn't want to understand or they couldn't, but "who" the bip came from definitely played a role in them.chosing to pick those "technical" arguments.

If you want to believe they're above that type of behaviour then we simply disagree.

2 is not an argument and the BIP explains how to handle the dust on notif address.
