Bitcoin never depends on the domain name, so the fundamental structure will not go down. It is the marketplace/community that may be seize. But if the community ie bitcointalk is doing nothing illegal, government cannot simply take down the site.

Aren't the Seed DNS nodes important?
Fortunately, some IP addresses are hardcoded in. Not to mention, if your client has ever connected to the network, it will first/also try IP addresses that were last seen by your node.

Can't do it for any reason after a thread is created, sorry.

If bitcoin drops to 10-20 it is pretty much dead.
Then that could very well be our target price. If you aren't feeling as miserable as you felt in 2011, we haven't yet bottomed. I speculated that this correction could take about 1 year a few days after the bubble popped.

Say, does the session cookie need to be accessible through JavaScript? If not, we could make the cookies HttpOnly.

Care to explain?
Sure. In order for the scammer tag to have any value at all, people need to see that we only use it in the absolute clearest of cases. When someone sees a scammer tag, they will then know that they shouldn't even try trading with that person. If we used the scammer tag in this case, 22% of the forum would believe that a scammer tag has no value and would ignore it in the future.

Stop blaming the moderators for other peoples stupidity, ...

We didn't. All we did was ask the moderators to give them a scammer tag.

553 users voted yes, 154 voted no so far.

A 78% majority is quite a strong message one might think.
22% against giving them the scammer tag is an even stronger message. Again, the majority does not make these decisions.

In all honesty I am surprised how you moderators are ill-equipped to diffuse the mess here even after giving a solution that would benefit the forum and put you back in a neutral position. After all that said you poke the hornets nest again with a comment like this.

Embarrassed  Embarrassed

btw I selected no for scammer tag. What does that say about the solution I put forth.
We're happy to accept ads from anyone as long as they don't contain "lies, misrepresentation, or inappropriate language" as outlined in our ad auction guidelines. Personally, I think that it would be better not to have anti-BFL ads at all since that will just bring more attention to them. Instead, it might be better to out-bid them and, if you win, re-sell your slots to the next lowest non-BFL bidder for their bid amount and consider the difference as a donation to the forum. If BFL keeps bidding beyond what you can afford, at least you are costing them more money.

I know that this is pretty much decided already, but we've just changed the policy for verifying PMs:
For us to verify a PM, you now will need to use the report button on each PM.

They're too mass-produced for my tastes, but if I ever make it to Japan, I'll probably still see them live at one of their daily shows >.<

I never made any backups, unfortunately..
Was this on Windows 7? Try right-clicking the wallet file and selecting "Previous Versions". Otherwise, try this:

Do you have any backups of the wallet? If they never sent anything after encrypting the wallet, the backup should still work.

A handshake, maybe?
397  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: Do not trade with UniversalTrek -- he is a scammer. on: June 06, 2013, 11:30:58 PM
I put in a request to verify the authenticity of the PMs in this thread. If accurate, they are pretty damning, unless UniversalTrek can provide the PM with the bitcoin address that the 1 BTC was sent to.
398  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: Open letter to Theymos regarding Butterfly Labs (BFL) on: June 06, 2013, 08:27:42 PM
So I guess the following holds true:

1. If the mods of this forum disagree with mere individuals and their views on BFL and the BS they can mock/troll you, censor you, change the title of the topic, and lock topics that are in regard to BFL if they so please.
That would be the local mods. If I recall, it was either DiabloD3 or Luke-Jr who did that, both of whom are no longer mods.

2. But if the same is true for a business like BFL, censoring is not an option when it comes to their opinions of said company.
You'll find that the global mods and admins are extremely consistent with our moderation decisions. Nobody from those groups was involved in the first action you mention above.

Ok, so this is starting to make more sense. Liberty Payout is just an idiot, which is something that we've known all along. He really needs to get his ducks in order, though, and pay you back.
