I was wondering if this could happen.  The problem is, it's summer here in texas, and it's damm hot.  A spike in energy use alone cant possibly justify busting down someone door looking for drugs.  If they do, I have my lawyer on speeddial.

Well, where i live police wouldn't kick my door in the middle of the night for ANYTHING!

They can only do it between 7a.m. and 9p.m. Wink People do have the right to rest you know?

Maybe you, north-americans, should consider moving out of there to some place where you actually do have rights  Cheesy

Well, if they want to, they will do it at exactly 07:01 AM. And they'll come in masked, with axes, hammers, shotguns, vests and everything. Also there will be 20 seconds before the first knock on the door and there being no door. You should answer half-naked, you can dress later, you can't re-materialize your door later.

Yes
Been there, done that! Not because of mining but for drugs. Yes, they came at 7:01 AM, but they knocked on the door. Europe is more civilized than north america, that's granted Smiley

again. not to sound like a total conspiracy nut, but does anyone else feel uncomfortable will so much police surveillance? sounds a lot like the little brother of 1984 getting ready to become the "big brother". Global elites want to control you. fight the power!

The people in power want to stay in power, since pointlessly measuring dicks is emotionally rewarding for some people.

Totally plausible. Most people in the country I live in don't even know the name for the equivalent of the DEA. The location of their headquarters is directly opposite a drug den of a nightclub, owned by a politicians son.

 At least one place in Canada will automatically report you to the cops if your electricity goes above 93kWh/day.

"In regards to if being a miner will bring the cops to your doorstep, according to the Bitcoin Miner, the power consumption will be somewhat like the electric usage for "marijuana grow-op." An example was "The Canadian town of Mission, BC has a bylaw that allows the town's Public Safety Inspection Team to search people's homes for grow ops if they are using more than 93 kWh of electricity per day." There have allegedly been reports floating in IRC of two different cases of police showing up at a bitcoin miner's residence with a search warrant. "
