Some value in mtgox's database are counterfeit coins now? I just wrote "$ 1.000.000" on a piece of paper, arrest me! I just "faked Dollars"!

If bitcoin taught me one thing, it's that (most) journalists are lazy, weak and possibly corrupt opportunists with no self-respect - not to be trusted.

They back-peddled after the first dozen commenters raked them over the coals and called them liars.

I guess they realized they weren't going to get away with that crap, and softened it a bit (with stool softener).

If you read his other articles, you'll find that the author is pathetic.  That much drivel suggests that he's either daft, or has an agenda.

On Page 20 of the Sunday Times ingear section.  "Show Me The Money:Bitcoin is a shadowy virtual currency that can be used by anyone in the real world. Its popularity is growing but critics fear it is an invitation to criminals."

Quote from: MoonShadow
Ah, I see.  This was a joke!

I wouldn't even dignify it as a joke; I was being flippant, and failed to communicate this explicitly, or with a smiley etc.  Excuse me.

There are a great many Europeans who feels that the interest rate of the Euro is adjusted to suit the German economy and agenda, and that Germany is using the Euro as a tool to manipulate other economies, but this is opinion.

And that is a valid opinion, but it's important to make a distinction between Germany the People and nation and Germany the government & their banking controllers.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

It seemed like an ok article but at the end they just give the finger to bitcoin:

Quote
Mr. Brito was optimistic about Bitcoins finding consistent users. But as with many online innovations, the early adopters tend to occupy a different, if marginal, niche.

“This is a censorship-proof currency that allows transactions to happen,” he said. “Right now what are those sort of transactions? Gambling, buying drugs — that is what is going to jumpstart it.”
  Huh

Mr. Britto is simply stating what he felt will help bitcoin takes off.

Yeah I know but I thats the subliminal message you get from the article especially since it's the very last this they point out.

I was surprised to find an article about bitcoin in a Finnish paper. Here's a online version of the article:
