Anyone concerned that the "Other" portion of mining operation has skyrocketed in the past 24 hours?  This is an order of magnitude increase.

Is it possible that a private or governmental agency could be doing this to 'fork the block' and destroy BTC?

I'll keep my politics out of your economics if you keep your economics out of my politics.

The large mining pools are being DDoSed.  Therefore their hashrates drop as a percentage of the total hash pool.
Also, as miners cannot connect to pools, they go solo, so the "Other" portion rises significantly as a percentage.

When the pools are back online, the miners will move back, and then you can post about how you're concerned Deepbit is 51% of the pool.

So what you're saying is that because someone other than you is mining bitcoins it must be a government conspiracy? Thats fucking insane, man.

Slush's pool is still up but not on the pie chart so that is a large chunk of other.

Come on people, learn how the pie chart works before posting this silly stuff.

Concerned about other? Ha...

I wish the whole chart was other.

I'm concerned that Deepbit has 51% of the pool.

How do you propose that the government or other interested party is going to shut this down?  Go over to BTC Bank politely knock on their door and ask for them to cease and desist?

Again the fact you automatically assume that because something isn't exactly what you expect you assume the government is somehow out to get you just shows how deluded you are, jesus christ. It's people like you that make everyone think that bitcoin is just for anti-establishment anarchists.
