We all need to run full validating nodes, no working implementation of spv, not able to prove a block is invalid and even if, not sufficient bc of valid-but-unknown blocks. Could you go into detail why blowback would be huge and it’s likely the community would just decide to tolerate a invalid block and try to ‘patch up’ the ill effects reactively ? Thank you.
