Keep in mind the court was in TEXAS.  Surely they love the federal government.

I'm not sure if you are familiar with Texas?

I'm not sure if you are familiar with sarcasm?
i wasn't going to say anything but thank you

It doesn't suck, it is karma.  Well it does suck for his wife but hopefully she either leaves him or buys a gun.  One can only hope the DOJ takes an interest in his case.

Thanks bro for allowing mainstream media to leave Average Joe with the impression that BTC as a whole is, in fact, a ponzi scheme.

Fox News will not have to work near as hard now. Awesome. If only you had a donate address.  Angry

BTCitcointalk 1%ers manipulate the currency and deceive its user community.

It's called that here too.

What's really funny is all of the supposedly intellectual young college entrepreneur Bitcoiners that were sucked in and conned by some dumbass wife-beating Texas hillbilly. lol

 Him being arrested for beating the shit out of his old lady.That has nothing to do with karma.  This just seals the deal for me that this man doesn't have an out of morals or respect for anyone.  I tried hard for a long time to follow the idea he was in over his head.  Got scared and bounced.  Yeah no longer.

His life is over, this will snowball out til he ether kills himself or gets locked up for a good number of years

Unbelievable how stupid this guy is. Ripping off that much bitcoin and ending up with so little $, moving it all into the exchange at once, putting his name out there and thinking he can get away with it.

A guy told me one time, "Don't let yourself get attached to anything you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you feel the heat around the corner"

That's a Robert De Niro line from a great movie called Heat.

Damn, how did you guys here fall for this crap?

I actually know someone that knows what he is doing and plays with those programs into his advantage, but there's no higher risk than HYIP or pyramid schemes...

I've recommended this before: grab a beer and look at some posts from August 2012. Mobs do interesting things.

I fell for this, sadly.

The mob mentality definitely was part of it.

My belief that bitcoin is revolutionary also played a part - I thought it not impossible that it could be used for some function that normal currency couldn't, producing such profits. 

Of course with hindsight I was awfully stupid.

You live you learn.

Oh, certainly. Maybe you should grab multiple beers and a page-joiner extension so you don't need to keep clicking "next."

The beginning of it all: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=50822.0

Here is the best one. "Choose: Walk The Plank or Keelhaul"
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=95008.0

Note he says, "chance the outcome of August 14." August 14 was not the end of the bet. This was a nice signal to get out for those of us who were gambling with pocket change on getting out before the implosion.


BitcoinMax - contains lots of taunting by Pirate's customers e.g. "I love how jealous they are that we're getting 7% weekly": https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=83904.0
The MNW bet: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=101751.msg1113117#msg1113117
Gamma Insured Pirate Pass-through - actually paid after default, though it took a while: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=96793.0
Goat's insured ppt - actually paid out: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=98420.0
Usagi tries to sell YARR - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=96221.msg1062097#msg1062097
5000 BTC bet between Pirate and Vandroiy - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=91661.0
How much BTC have you lost out on because you listened to Vandroiy? - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=92581.0
(Vandroiy was very vocally anti-Pirate. He was right, but it got kind of annoying.)
Also everything on this page: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=78.960
- Including "I know what Pirate's doing" https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=91670.0

And some of mine:
My mathematical analysis of all the "insured" bonds - contains a funny argument between me and usagi, except usagi deleted all his posts: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=96092.0
^serious
not serious:

Me trying to sell a bridge: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=96481.msg1063444#msg1063444
Global warming: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=50822.msg992872#msg992872

That describes about 10% of the Bitcoin user base, 15% of the mining pools and 25% of the businesses. lol
