are you not familiar with gawker?  That's how they operate, sex, drugs, depravity.  Doesn't stop me from reading it, deadspin, and jalopnik everyday.  Guess I should also peruse their tech site as well.

No no, I know how Gawker operates. I used to enjoy them as well but have since stopped reading their site as well as the entire Gawker network. Attention grabbers and biased reporting. It just shocked me that they were basically saying "Look! Bitcoins went up! That must mean all these geeks that read our article are buying drugs just like we thought! What, more price increase? More drugs!"

Falkvienge should also learn that bitcoin is not anonymous, btw (he stated it was).

It is anonymous if you know how to use it.

Quite honestly I can each week pass all my funds to MtGox the withdraw them to a new wallet.

Only $1000 or 58 BTC (with current rate) per day can be withdrawn. Don't do it Smiley

just a blog, not sure how notable...

http://blog.ezyang.com/2011/06/the-cryptography-of-bitcoin/

together with a comment by yours truly...

> “all of these primitives are hard-coded into the Bitcoin protocol”

However:

if blockNumber > X
  use_new_hardcoded_primitives()
else
  use_old_hardcoded_primitives()

Here goes your “hard coded” argument.

Benzinga.com emailed me, noting that they had revised the story.  I see the revisions on Forbes.com, but not benzinga.com.

1. Bitcoin is anonymous. 
2. Anonymous is anonymous. 
3. Anonymous are hackers. 
4. Herp
5. Derp
6. Therefore, Bitcoiners are hackers.

Many bitcoiners may be hackers, but they are not vandals.
Post comments criticizing those articles. Why even mention Bitcoin in the context of criminal activity without adequately explaining what it is?

its funny but expect a lot of mainstream media to use that reasoning also, hackers/terrorists/drug users ect.
