Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.

More FUD for tought:

Really a very poor written piece I must say, it's annoying how many bloggers that spread FUD really have not a deep understanding about how bitcoin works.

Most blogers are idiots, who can not write for shit and are mostly regurgitating someone else's crap.

 

While reading what I wrote, use the most friendliest and relaxing voice in your head.

Bitcoin raid foiled
Kaspersky Lab has released its June 2011 report. According to the report, the Mac operating system is still in cybercriminal's sights, law enforcement agencies are clamping down on cybercrime and the Russian BitCoin virtual money system has been foiled.
...
Money from thin air

Russian scammers tried their luck at making money for nothing in June using the BitCoins virtual money system. With the help of a new malicious program they launched a legitimate BitCoins file on the victim computer in an attempt to generate the cyber currency in their own accounts. The BitCoins site administration reacted quickly to block the attacker’s account, as such the cybercriminals appear to have made very little money.

NPR's Planet Money podcast has updated its RSS feed (but not yet its website?) to include an episode on Bitcoin.

I'm too tired to listen to it right now, but I'm sure it's very important.

Bitcoin Mining GPU Performance Comparison
http://www.hardocp.com/article/2011/07/13/bitcoin_mining_gpu_performance_comparison

Article with basic comparisons of different mining hardware, focusing specifically on GPU performance. Leaning heavily on the technical side but still nice to see it get exposure.

Another NPR podcast today, this one "Virtual Currency: Seed Of Poor Spending Habits?"
 - http://www.npr.org/2011/07/13/137818171

Because yesterday's jabs weren't enough to discourage its audience, NPR went with another approach -- it's so dangerous!  "The technology has outpaced the ethics".

Commentary: Why Bitcoin Will Fail as a Currency

http://www.calculatinginvestor.com/2011/07/13/thoughts-on-bitcoin/

Quote
Although I think that Bitcoin is ingenious and fascinating in many ways, I don’t believe that it will succeed as a currency. The problem is that a Bitcoin is unlikely to ever be a good store of value (a primary function of any widely accepted currency) because the (eventually) fixed money supply will cause the purchasing power of a Bitcoin to be extremely volatile.

Stopped reading right there.
