1  Other / Politics & Society / Whore Madam too Conservative to use bitcoin on: June 19, 2011, 09:23:02 PM
I just posted this in the meta form.  You might want to check out the "kill the politics forum" thread there.  I found it very interesting. And no, I am not trolling.  The thread is not about sex at all, although if you click on her website Icon you'll get as much sex as you want.  I'm not calling her names.  Actually, according to her post, she wants to be labeled as the "Whorish Oriental Despot" of the forum

Ok, let me try to get what's going on in this thread. OP  Jessy Kang, the Madam whore who runs an SM and Bondage business(check out her website) with several "ladies" in NY is concerned that respectable businessmen will be scared away from using bitcoin because of libertarian extremist wackos on the politics forum.  And that respectable and completely legal business's like hers wouldn't be caught dead using bitcoin. She is now no longer accepting bit coin for this reason.  Am I getting this right so far?

Don't get me wrong, I found many of her posts excellent, and this is one of the best threads I've ever come across.  She truly is an"intellectual whore". Even though I am a life long libertarian,  I for one am in favor of at least moderating the politics board because other unmoderated libertarian boards I've been on have degenerated into Neo-Nazi, racist, and antisemitic playgrounds.

That being said, I first heard of bitcoin on the Max Keiser show.  And really got interested when I heard about the Silk Road thing.  I'm into bitcoin because it is about Freedom (I hope) and is revolutionary.  That's the attraction for me and probably lots of other people who come to bitcoin.  I wonder what attracted Ms Kang to bitcoin.  Perhaps she's looking to get some of those presumably rich bitcoin administrators as clients?  Just wondering.  I can't really see her trying to get her existing clients to use bitcoin that much although maybe the (supposed) anonymity would be an attraction in some cases.  Those clients would have to be patient and into bitcoin though because it takes some effort at this point to locate the amount of coins Ms Kang would demand for her services.  Perhaps she could enlighten me.

Watch this interview with Gavin Anderson bit coin programmer/administrator. It's eye opening, especially what he says about working with the government,  using bitcoin is not anonymous, the exchanges are registered with the government and complying with all laws.  This guy also gave a talk to the CIA this week. You can find the link for that yourself.

Don't get me wrong, I'm very excited about bitcoin, but I think the Feds are not going to be happy.  If somebody there is knowledgable about this, and thinks I'm wrong let me know.  If they'll lock a guy up for making silver coins, I don't think they're going to be very accomodating to bitcoin. The Feds move slow, but when they move watch out!  Can bitcoin survive regardless?  I hope so.

Article I, section 8, clause 5 of the United States Constitution delegates to Congress the power to coin money and to regulate the value thereof. This power was delegated to Congress in order to establish and preserve a uniform standard of value and to insure a singular monetary system for all purchases and debts in the United States, public and private. Along with the power to coin money, Congress has the concurrent power to restrain the circulation of money which is not issued under its own authority in order to protect and preserve the constitutional currency for the benefit of all citizens of the nation. It is a violation of federal law for individuals, such as von NotHaus, or organizations, such as NORFED, to create private coin or currency systems to compete with the official coinage and currency of the United States.

5  Other / Beginners & Help / first Post What is the connections and blocks at bottom wallet? on: June 15, 2011, 08:08:21 PM
Hi Everybody. Wow, is this interesting!  My first stupid question of many is the ever increasing blocks number at the bottom of my wallet and the 8 connections  What is all that? and why is the number always increasing and does it mean I'm connected to some network each time I pull up my wallet? (that has no bitcoin in it)  Also I can't get any bitcoin from the faucet since it's down. bummer
