I'm actually more pissed off that the networks won't cover net neutrailty, but we all know why at least.  I have no idea why the media would rather cover Justin Beiber than Bitcoin, however.

you people make it sound like we're living in the 1970s and only have two channels on TV and one local newspaper to read.

It's 2014 and there are thousands of news programs and articles online. The options are endless. Every day I can read about bitcoin, but that's because I seek it out. Furthermore, the irony here is, when bitcoin news does actually make headlines, it's often negative (ie. LAST WEEK mtgox loses half billion of account holder money) and then bitcoiners complain that the big meanies in the media are trying to bring us down. So... which do you want?

lol okay Justin Bieber... like him or not, he still has scores of fans, mostly young women. Everyone else loves to hate him. People obviously like to hear about him, otherwise the news would dry up. Face it, people are way more interested in Justin Bieber than bitcoin. That doesn't make it right, but that's reality...

I was complaining more about Verizon and Comcast, and cable networks selection of what is and is not news.  I get Bitcoin coverage everyday too, just not from my television.

I knew it!  Soon we all will be getting QR code tats on our right hands or foreheads so we can pay in Bitcoin!

So I guess we're all blaming Galvin for SN's identity leak?
26  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Dorian Nakamoto does NOT speak English well and he ain't Satoshi, see article: on: March 06, 2014, 06:16:05 PM
I agree it's probably him.  It's kinda sad, this was funner when we all could dream up our own Satoshi Nakamoto.  I'd say boycott Newsweek, but I'm pretty sure nobody read it before this story anyway.

29  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What if you bought some of those stolen Mt Gox Bitcoins? on: March 02, 2014, 02:17:21 AM
Sorry if this was discussed, but in USA if you buy stolen property and you are caught with it you have to return it to the original owner at your loss.

This is utter bullshit.  The person who stole it is responsible for all losses under US law.

For example, say I steal your credit card and buy a $2000 flat screen from Best Buy, but on my way home I get into an accident and the TV is destroyed.  Once the the FBI catches me, it's MY responsibility to fork over the $2000 not Best Buy's.

Absolutely.  I spent about that much on 0.1 BTC today.  Also a big fan of Coinbase. Smiley
32  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Streamlining purchaisng of bitcoin on: March 02, 2014, 12:12:37 AM
Is it really true that you can't put up an exchange in the US?
What exactly is the reason they use for not providing you an account?

Coinbase is a US exchange based out of San Franscio.  I'm curious to know what regulations the OP is talking about that "muck" streamlined exchanges up.  I just see them as part of Silicon Valley's continual pushing of the cloud.
33  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Seemingly horrible business decision by whales on: March 01, 2014, 09:00:56 PM
1.   What the hell is a whale?

2.  They shouldn't bail out MtGox.  Let the damn thing die already.
34  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: what the hell are crypto stocks? on: March 01, 2014, 07:31:10 PM
We have no idea what country's laws apply to these people because they're owned by Vircuex.  Like the OP I fail to see how exchanging currency can be turned into company stock.  Which company?  Who am I in debt to if I do this?  This reeks stronger than hotdogs in garlic sauce.
35  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: You Have To Assume All Of The Exchanges Are Doing It Wrong on: March 01, 2014, 03:34:27 PM
The big problem I see with bitcoin is the exchanges.

Bitcoin Exchanges are working like a Nigerian Bank, who can trust a nigerian bank to depost their money?

Also I am sure that the exchanges are manipulating the price of bitcoin, with the mtgox issue the price of bitcoin has to be right now below $100 and if you check the price of bitcoin in the exchanges is very stable.

Bitcoin has a strong future but one thing that has big issues are the exchanges, after the mt gox problem who can trust them?

I remember some weeks ago how mtgox keeps showing the price of bitcoin, how could a company that was out of business and it was closed could show the price of bitcoin, how can they set the price of bitcoin if they don't have any transaction, this show me that the price of bitcoin is based on nothing and the other exchanges are doing the same to fix an artificial price of bitcoin that is not real.

Gold or sliver have no real value either except what the gold people give it...

Go read up on the law of supply and demand, and get back to me if you still think it's the worst thing in the world.

Probably just spammers being cute.  These amounts are so small there's no reason to suspect anything nefarious.
37  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How viable is Bitcoin with Satoshi + MtGox theif holding 2 Million BTC? on: February 28, 2014, 09:06:48 PM
That Mark stole 744k BTC is not necessarily what happened, but one interpretation of the very limited facts that have been provided for us.
38  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Why you guys wanna let people see your wallets? on: February 28, 2014, 07:42:37 PM
I think the OP is confused.  Every wallet has two simutainous addresses.  One for sending money, and one for reciveing money.  You're sending address you obviously want to keep private, the recieving address who cares?
39  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Join Coinsetter’s Initiative to Create a Public Transparency Protocol on: February 28, 2014, 07:20:41 PM
My biggest question is why do we really need cloud banking to begin with?  I mean, I think you guys had good intentions believing these services would attract more people to Bitcoin, but considering all the risks from hackers and thieves within the bank itself, it's becoming apparent that these services are giving Bitcoin negative attention.

At the moment the Bitcoin community really only needs two services from exchanges: buying and selling BTC, and instant conversion of BTC to fiat for merchants.  Exchanges can better meet these needs by ditching their risky cloud services and devloping and pushing their own encrypted SDV wallets for desktop and mobile that aside from obviously requiring the self-storage of Bitcoins, would also come with the added benefit of being able to buy and sell BTC directly from the app.  Make it NFC ready and you're all set for the future.  Smiley

It's funny as hell, have a sense of humor.

Bitcointalk is run by a bunch of humorless Deans of Economics at a variety of Ivy League institutions across the globe collectively known by the alias Satoshi Nakamoto.  Hitherto, no one may laugh when discussing the Bitcoin.
