It would be interesting to see an analysis of the code with an eye to determining author(s) styles.  Many have opined that this must be a project undertaken by many. 

Maybe you could oust the identity of satoshi by comparing his style across open source C++ codebase.
1343  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin Weekly Update Thread. on: July 04, 2011, 12:12:13 PM
Added an article and a comic to the ransom lineup:

Comic: The Gavinator by Joey Dangerous.

Article: Calm After the Storm by Vitalik Buterin.

Visit http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=23934.0 for more details on the ransom.

I really don't agree with this ransom system and I think it will effect the writers words knowing a system like this is in place.  I'm trying to find the start of how this system came into place or why, I swear I seen a thread about this not long ago, but I guess I'll ask here, why ransom an article?
We need to raise revenue. Advertising doesn't cut it anymore.

Quote
Also, I am only against the ransom of an article in theory, it may in the end be something that pays off for the reader, writer, and publisher.  But right now I do not only see how the reader can have a price put on information that they could possibly already know.   Will this not hinder new readership?  I'm kind of put off and I'm already a viewer (but I am open minded, curious if this is how a payment for journalists doing freelance it Bitcoin could be worked out).   Is there any other sites that offer a ransom type system for articles?

The archive is free for readers to read forever. Once the articles are released from ransom, they are also free to read forever. Ransom is the least worst way of hindering readership. IF it was possible to keep the magazine free, I would...however, my writers and cartoonists gottach eat, and my magazine does too, to keep itself afloat.

Satoshi is anonymous. Nobody know if he's a girl or a boy. Nobody knows his nationality, except that he doesn't talk Japanese and doesn't code like a Japanese.

Satoshi is truly an anonymous benefactor of mankind.

I thought you can't use paypal with morpheus because stinking paypal shut him down?
1347  Economy / Marketplace / Re: Bitcoin Weekly RANSOM (.70 BTC targets, 1 article to be released) on: July 04, 2011, 12:04:10 AM
sent you a very small donation there. Not much but hopefully if you get many people to send a small amount it'll add up.

It's easy to miss these notifications in the forum. If you had a mailing list or something like that might get a better response.

 

Thanks. The balance is now .1101 BTC.
1348  Economy / Marketplace / Re: Bitcoin Weekly RANSOM (.70 BTC targets, 1 article to be released) on: July 03, 2011, 11:46:51 PM
I don't get it. You want .70 BTC from people or else you won't publish some article? ...And I care about the article because?

Read http://bitcoinweekly.com

If you like the articles or the comics there, then consider donating some bitcent. You don't have to pay the whole ransom amount.

It's necessary because bitcoinweekly needs to pay its writers and cartoonists. Paying bitcoin compensate them for their work and help them produce more articles and comics.

Problem with mybitcoin is that they have no password recovery mechanism.
1350  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin social networking? on: July 03, 2011, 11:34:41 PM
It makes me kinda sad that bitcoin cannot enter the facebook world (since facebook will never allows this). I think the gambling games we are seeing on the forum might more popular if they were embedded in facebook.

Facebook wants to use facecash and probably ban gambling games as they are bad for their image.

Given how prominent social network sites are in web use patterns, does it make sense to have a social networking site based around bitcoin?

What are the possible benefits?
1351  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How do I proceed when MtGox refuses to communicate? on: July 03, 2011, 11:30:13 PM

Listen, I'm not an early adopter.  I don't have thousands of coins I'm sitting on.  I invested a week to soon obviously.  


Our mindset is obviously different. I feel I am responsible for my own money and even the money I stored on other people's.

What money I protect, I have the right to them. If I don't try to protect my money, than it is my fault because I didn't do anything. That's not to say it is not the fault of the criminal who stole my money. It is also their fault as they have harmed me.

I am responsible for my own defense, for providing my own food, for navigating my life. Nobody in the world have an obligation to fix things when it is wrong. People help me, and they may do it out of love, out of obligation, or reciprocation, or whatever reasons but they are not responsible for anything.

I have an obligation to do that all for myself.

You expect certain rights to be provided for you, simply because you are the victim.

Me? I gottach work for my own justice. If somebody help me, that's fine and dandy, and I want to make sure that my actions for justice doesn't harm other people.

And so today I write to defend my interest.

That's how it is. A different perspective.

Good luck with getting your money back.
1352  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How do I proceed when MtGox refuses to communicate? on: July 03, 2011, 11:14:23 PM

I also don't adhere to the same politics as you are trying to convey.  I do believe some government intervention is needed.  And in the case of theft.  Yes, yes, I do.

So if you are wanting this currency to become well adopted.  Sooner or later there will have to be some form of regulation.  Oh, that dirty word.  It's just the way it is or it's NEVER going to succeed.  You can't see that?  Otherwise there isn't any recourse for anything.

If you and everyone want to treat this a currency there are laws that also come along to protect people in cases such as this.

I wish to hold back regulations as much as possible so that Bitcoin Weekly will be able to thrive without me, without the system intruding on Bitcoin Weekly's ability to output economically beneficial work. Now that I realize that is futile and that Bitcoin Weekly would needs to grow up quickly to be able to defend itself.

The politics are not styles, but substance.

It's not about revenge.  It's about getting my money back.  Jesus.  And my information is already all over the Internet thanks to that hack.  You don't think the Feds have had a look see at the list of MTGox users?  Especially since they've already shown interest in it.  You are fooling yourself if you think not.  I'm fairly easy to find after my email and username.  So there really isn't much else to give up.  That's already been done.  

I want my money back.  It's that simple.  And no, I'm not giving this up.

Revenge or "want your money back", whatever. Consideration of harms to others seem to not be priority for you.
1353  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How do I proceed when MtGox refuses to communicate? on: July 03, 2011, 11:05:47 PM
Kiba, take your childish ranting elsewhere.

With all due respect, I am simply defending my own interest. I have not insulted anybody and I want people to consider others' interest. The fact that I am not anonymous made me strongly interested in persuading complainers to take a different course of actions.

Quote
Whatever your political ideology is, it's a simple fact that there are sovereign powers who can enforce contracts. You might not like those powers, and I might not either, but that's who's in charge and we can't just pretend otherwise.

I very much want to avoid going to the authorities, and I expect MtGox will resolve my issue before that becomes neccessary.

If you wish, you can do so and take actions...but once that happens, the consequence will be boycott by me, as much as possible. Of course, mine is simply a small magazine so you don't care.

I will defend my interest.

1355  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How do I proceed when MtGox refuses to communicate? on: July 03, 2011, 10:40:33 PM

Wow.  So that's your response.  You mock me and then go into your weird sexual fetishes.  Wow.  Just Wow.

I am not gay and I am not mocking you.

In the future, you may have something to hide that's perfectly legit. Maybe you are Jewish and some Nazi are looking for you.

Are you sure you want to give up that right for a simple revenge?

Quote
And no, I'm not giving this up.  Sorry.

Do you care about anybody else, at all? Are you blinded by your own suffering that you forget to consider how others might be impacted?
1356  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How do I proceed when MtGox refuses to communicate? on: July 03, 2011, 10:33:05 PM
I'm not afraid of the Government.  I have nothing to hide.  Maybe you do.  I don't really care.

Are you gay? Do you have a weird sexual fetish? Do you read comics with naked men and women doing icky things.

There are thousand of things that are perfectly legit to hide simply because they are considered icky by other human beings. Simply because some would love a good gay-bashing. Simply because your ex-husband is out to get you. Simply because you don't want others to see you masturbating to 4chan posts.

Quote
I'm not getting robbed just so you can feel "safe".  MTGox is doing this.  Not me.  How about putting a little pressure on them?  You know, instead of blaming the victims?

I am not blaming the victims. As I repeatedly suggest, as soon as you get your money out of there, don't do any more business with them.

It is a type of retaliation, although not perfectly satisfactory, that doesn't involves others that have nothing to do with you.
1357  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How do I proceed when MtGox refuses to communicate? on: July 03, 2011, 10:20:57 PM
This is dozens of people from the looks of it.  Now stop only thinking of yourself and sticking up for thieves.  It's not swaying anyone.  We've had enough of their shit.

Who say I am defending the thieves? Your actions our impact me.

You want to fuck somebody who fuck you because he deserves it. Maybe he does deserve it, but you or your loved ones are not dead. Your intelligence is still there. Your life is still the same except some loss of money.

Your action will cause collateral damage. You bring in the authorities, they will regulate everything to shit and we get no say in how we run the bitcoin economy.

They have guns, taxing power, and the ability to coerce us at will. These are the same authorities who will pursue somebody for consuming marijuana and LSD despite not being a danger to people at all. These are the same authorities who fucked up 9/11 and play security theaters in airport. They are incompetent and dangerous.

If you sue somebody in this community, I don't want to do any fucking business with you. (That reminds me not to do business with mtgox or tradehill as they will give information to authorities to pursue silk road users)
1358  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: I think we should ban those ponzi game post on this forum on: July 03, 2011, 10:02:05 PM
GOSH! Can we stop banning everything that even remotely smell of PR disaster?
1359  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How do I proceed when MtGox refuses to communicate? on: July 03, 2011, 09:57:36 PM

And MTGox is not the biggest loser.  They are still the largest exchange.

They are certainly the biggest loser if you defined by how much business they lost and not who is the biggest guy out there.

Quote
Closing valid support tickets with the proper information with proof they have my money with no intention of contacting me is THEFT as far as I'm concerned.

I have a right to report if if I'd like.  I'm not going to just sit back and allow them to fuck me.  I don't know who would.  Except for maybe you.

There exists individuals who fear authorities more than thieves. Thieves are scroundels. Authorities that can hide behind legitimacy to cloak criminal acts are scarier.

Bitcoin Weekly would not sue people for plagiarizing and taken credit for our works, ever. We despise copyright laws more than we despise individual scroundels.

Due to new content ready for publication: the ransom price is now .70 BTC.

New to the ransom are, The Gavinator by Joey Dangerous and Calm After the Storm by Vitalik Buterin.

Also, the ransom balance should shortly be .1001 BTC as one donor donated an extra .0001 BTC to verify his ownership.
