The victims of the pirate scam are probably busy giving away the rest of their bitcoins to another scammer. Hell, half the victims still support and defend pirate.

Sooooooooo, never?

 We cant even get the active scammers shut down, much less track down the old ones.




This place makes me sad.

I'm doing my God Damned best, but my last efforts have all been for not. I found a strong connection between Pirate and Global Oil Fund, but all those posts have been removed.

I am not very happy now.

What do you mean by "finding pirate".  His real life identity was known long before he defaulted as were the identities of some of his real life business associates and his family.  We even know when he's next due in court in relation to other matters.

What is needed now is for people who've lost funds to actually go ahead and file complaints with the various agencies responsible for investigating investment fraud, cyber-crime, etc.  The more people who do that, the better.  As such frauds go, this is not a big one, so a large volume of formal complaints is highly desirable.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

Yes. Who? And why?

That's what I'm really wondering...  First, if his identity isn't know, can we not at least get a log from the forum admin with all the IP addresses he logged in with and go from there?  Second, if his identity is known, can we not get a complaint form together for BTCST customers to fill out so that a formal complaint or class action lawsuit may be filed?

"formal complaint or class action lawsuit"

What you are asking is that a group of crypto-anarchists should get together and seek legal redress from a central authority. Do you not understand how silly that request sounds and how it goes entirely against the fiber of this community?

So far the only consensus reached on punishment for Pirate has been to assign him a "Scammer" tag. If you believe additional punishment is needed from the community, then by all means outline what you intend. I am not interested in hearing about attempts at punishment than involve state actors. In my opinion it should be entirely community/consensus driven and peer-to-peer, just like Bitcoin itself.

If you don't like it, feel free to not participate. As an anarchist you should appreciate that others have the freedom to seek other forms of action if they feel it necessary, and they should also be able to discuss without you talking down on them or saying you aren't interested in hearing about it. If you don't want to hear about it, then close the thread and go start your own.

Point taken and thanks for the advice.  I will continue to seek out those interested in community/peer-to-peer driven solutions to this problem and either ignore or argue against those who wish to resort to state backed coercive tactics.

Who is making the claim that one must be a 'crypto-anarchist' (whatever the hell that means) in order to use bitcoin? If bitcoin is useless to all who are not crypto-anarchists [sic], we have a very long slog going forward.

And while anarchy may end up being a just principle for societal organization, it will not so be until some mechanism arises by which justice can be dispensed.

There may be a rational argument that joint vigilantism may be as just as what our current society provides. However engaging in such in today's environment exposes the 'vigilantes' (need a better term here) to being thrown in a cage.

No. Not at all.

I don't particularly care what _your_ interest may be. Do you not recognize the irony in an anarchist trying to coordinate a top-down enforcement of a single type of response to what pirate has done?

Bottom line, each injured party is free to pursue (or not) whatever remedy they so desire. For my part, I would like to share resources (time talent and treasure) with other such injured parties to bring pirate to justice. If after all we learn, the state is the most expeditious route to recovering some of my property, so be it.

Anyone with a campaign ad in their signature -- for an organization with which they are not otherwise affiliated -- is automatically deducted credibility points.

I'm not a "crypto-anarchist" (whatever that means), I'm a social democrat, and I would have no issue going to a central authority to get my money back (if I had gotten any money taken in one of these schemes, that is).

Not everyone here subscribes to your political affiliation.
