I am very worried that bitcoind is hosted on a virtual private server managed by another company...

I'm wary of this as well, which is one of the reasons I'm hesitant to ever make a guarantee to users unless I have insurance for all the funds.  Maybe BitVPS.com can convince us otherwise?

If you secure it right then it shouldn't matter.

If this takes off you will be managing a lot of bitcoins.  Maybe you need to host it yourself which will take more security work but it might be worth it.

I checked out the Reddit API.  They only allow 30 requests per minute.  Seems like this reddit bot will not be scalable.  I think you should contact reddit and ask them on some advice.

I like the bot, I hope it's back up and running soon. At some point if it becomes really popular it might be a good idea to switch the bot's auto-replies to PMs to avoid spamming threads, but for now I think the viral factor of posting transaction confirmations is beneficial and helps show the tips are real.

This is an awesome idea.

However, please don't have the bot add an entire comment as confirmation.  Just a red star or something (might need a line or two of code from the people who run reddit.com).  If it keeps polluting the comment space like it's doing right now, there's likely to be some sort of backlash.

Again: awesome, awesome idea.

The printing press heralded the end of the Dark Ages and made the Enlightenment possible, but it took another three centuries before any country managed to put freedom of the press beyond the reach of legislators.  So it may take a while before cryptocurrencies are free of the AML-NSA-KYC surveillance plague.

Instead of managing users' fund, just use your money. For example, if you could only risk 1 BTC, than only keep a cold wallet deposit of only 1 BTC. That way if the VPS get robbed, you lose your 1 BTC instead of the customers' money.

UPDATE on the bot:

I'm in the process of rewriting the bot in python to take advantage of the Python Reddit API Wrapper (praw) and make retrieving user comments and messages faster.  Parts of the code need updated now that a bitcoind server is being used instead of the blockchain.info API.  I'm new to Github and I'm not well versed in python, so please bear with me.  Every line there should be treated as pseudocode for now since it's a mess between PHP -> Python.  If you would like to help out, here it is on Github: https://github.com/NerdfighterSean/bitcointip

Some people suggested a subreddit specifically for the bot, so I've made that if you want to post stuff there: http://www.reddit.com/r/bitcointip
