1481  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: US Citizens! Do Your Part! Don't Let Senator Schumer Ban/Limit Bitcoin on: June 09, 2011, 12:47:53 PM

Bitcoin is not anonymous, and it is not for money laundering.  These are the touchstones for Schumer and his like-minded senators on the big banking commitees.  Take the fangs out of their argument by proving them wrong, then you've got something.

I am not willing to hurt people simply for selling weapons and weeds. What these people are doing is a voluntary transaction. Schumer and his friends are morally disgusting, not us.

Bitcoin Weekly is alive after an outage.
1483  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: The Bitcoin Weekly Comes Alive on: June 08, 2011, 10:00:28 PM
Currently in big downtime because of my administrative screwup: "sudo poweroff"  Shocked

I don't think it really powersoff the machine as it's a vps, you can probably connect with vnc directly to the console output.

Failing that contact your admins.

The problem is that I don't know how to do this and that MagicalTux is busy.

This site is ranked 1,748 by alexa.  It's not extremely good.


Don't use Alexa, it's not very accurate.

And so July 5th we end with 3763 forum posts in a 24 hours period.

Though I'm not a resident of NY or WV, I've written both Senators. I tried to shed a more positive light on Bitcoin. I encourage other American voters to do the same.

As a small business owner, I want to provide any legitimacy that I can to Bitcoin's public perception. I'm not part of the tin foil hat crowd and don't believe that the Senators are uncaring Illuminati robot aliens. But if I disappear, you know who to blame. I wrote to them with my real name and business address. I feel that this is a cause worth fighting for.

We need a positive narrative. Right now the narrative is that bitcoin is helping drug traffickers do their...things.

Religious people often DON'T know more about the criticism of religion than religion critics.

How about that for logic...

Actually, my articles show why Bitcoiners are often more knowledgeable about bitcoin more than bitcoin critics.
1491  Other / Meta / Re: POLL: The Forum is getting cluttered, do we need rules? on: June 05, 2011, 10:38:04 PM
I don't like this rule. Often there is a lot of new and useful discussion in "duplicate" threads. Even the constant "Deflationary=bad" threads get very good replies.

And I get to post an article from Bitcoin Weekly about why deflation ain't so bad.  Wink

1493  Bitcoin / Press / Re: Bitcoin press hits, notable sources on: June 05, 2011, 09:21:31 PM
I wouldn't contact either of those senators; it's clear that they're both insane, and mentioning Tor and Bitcoin to them would, if they haven't heard of them before, be a very bad idea.

Political insanity. We all have it. Some have it worse than others.
1494  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: 99.9% of Bitcoin Haters are uneducated (regarding Bitcoin) on: June 05, 2011, 08:47:06 PM
Bitcoiners often know more about the criticism of bitcoin than bitcoin critics. This is a natural consequence of constant forum debate. http://bitcoinweekly.com/articles/generation-and-assimilation-of-bitcoin-knowledge

I'm not really sure any more about my original point, but I'm still of the opinion that we as western citizens should reduce exploiting both nature and other people in order to protect our outrageous wealth and become even more obese and unhappy.

I question the whole notion of happiness as the ultimate goal of humanity.

Meanwhile, our obesity is caused by evolutionary maladapation. We now live in a world of extremely rich nutrient, but our body still carve fats, sugar, and carbohydrate to the detriment of our health.

As the world become more prosperous, we will face widespread obesity.

This is just the sort of excuse that these guys need to attack bitcoin. The network likely won't withstand the attack. It was nice while it lasted...

The network is not the chokepoint. The exchanges are. http://bitcoinweekly.com/articles/anonymous-money-needs-an-anonymous-exchange
1497  Bitcoin / Press / Re: Bitcoin press hits, notable sources on: June 05, 2011, 03:37:09 PM

= the banksters are worried.

While I am worried about silk road operator getting shut down, I am more worried bitcoin will be "collateral" damage. (Note, I can't be used as info source as I see nothing, know nothing).

I fear for the bitcoin price and shutdown of currency exchange operator. We need to move faster to decentralized method of exchange.

Not inability to own resources. Its the system that demands profit while theres no profit in preserving the earth.

Nobody figures out how to own school fishes, so everyone compete for the remaining fishes. It's a tradegy of the commons situation.

Our population grows like rabbits. Our hunger for resources grow like rabbits but not directly because of what would be expected: population, but because 1/4 of the world needs more and more and more.

It is a transportation problem, not a resource allocation problem. Not enough infrastructure, no market institutions, no speculators, etc.
