Why is mount Gox not implementing a POW to verify all transactions? It doesn't have to be hard, just hard enough that it slows down the transaction to human level!

and the DDOS attacks! WTF! This is seriously hurting things, this has to be figured out.

If the Developers of the exchanges read this: Please understand that I truly believe in Bitcoin and would like to see it thrive.
Ever since I found out about it, I have understood what it is doing to the world and am looking forward to the changes that it will bring.

Please fix the exchanges, A Proof-of-Work system can take care of those Distributed Denial Of Service attacks.

Thank You.




I'm not sure if Google translate translated that properly so, hope it makes sense.

In fact if you have a website and are victim to DDOS please implement a Proof-of-Work to save the internet. I am sure you all heard about the 300 gb/s attack that occured a few weeks back. When implementing the system for the pools, it may take some trial and error as to what level of lag is necessary, but basically, make them work for every transaction they try to send with Low Orbit Ion Cannon. The bots are only going to get faster, time to slow them down.

Since then, the attacks have grown to more than 300 Gb/s of flood traffic: a scale that's threatening to clog up the Internet's core infrastructure and make access to the rest of the Internet slow or impossible.

If you think my efforts are worth something; I'll keep on keeping on.
I don't believe in IQ, only in Determination.
