Litecoin and other scamcoins like it, on the other hand, do not bring anything new to the table.

They are just mere clones that retain the pump-and-dump nature of Bitcoin, but without the innovation that makes Bitcoin viable as a currency.

[Bitcoin Gold] is an altcoin not a hard fork.

Hard forks are when an existing system changes (in a non-backwards compatible way). New systems are just altcoins, never hardforks.

The part that confuses people is that if you attempt a hardfork without consensus, you end up with an altcoin instead.

ASIC-resistant [like Ravencoin's attempt] is stupid. It just gives a bigger advantage to whoever does it first.
