I am just a small guy. I only run a node 'sometimes'.

With the BU talk, I learned that Nodes have power, more than miners think. Nodes accept the Miners' newly minted coins.

I realized that malicious entities are planning to attack Bitcoin from the inside.

Running a node is expensive for a nobody like me. I do it but I use an old laptop for that. 1MB blocks are manageable. Increasing the block size too much would effectively prevent me from running the node, weakening the Bitcoin network.

Is this correct?
