There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. EWallets are like banks -- a central organization has complete control over your money. You shouldn't put much money in EWallets.
Advertised sites are not endorsed by the Bitcoin Forum. They may be unsafe, untrustworthy, or illegal in your jurisdiction. Advertise here.

The forum could only realistically sell newbie accounts, with the restrictions already removed, and at a price to discourage spammers.  But I believe most people looking to buy accounts want reputable accounts, and I don't think it'd bide well if the forum started to seize accounts to sell them Tongue

Create account. Set creation date to late '11, insert 15 crap posts inside dead threads nobody will resurrect.

Boom. $15. (assuming SMF can do that without heavy modification not readily available)

Hrmm I'm sure it's entirely possible.  But that gives even less reason to trust any account on activity or status alone.  I like it!

Why stop there, how about 1,000  posts for $50.  Add moderator status for $80 more.

Account creation time is a regular Unix timestamp but SMF provides no facilities to modify it.

Some template posts from late 2011:

  • Do you think bitcoin will ever hit $30 again?
  • What is the best CPU for mining?
  • I just invested all my bitcoins in Bitcoin Savings and Trust, I am going to be rich!

It is called editing a MySQL database. Administrators can do live queries on it and it is totally possible for thus to be done, but I don't think it is actually being done.

Exactly. The only problem would be making the actual posts. A post count of 78,658 seems pretty suspicious with no "recent posts."

y=x^2 is a parabola

I'm new to this but I gotta LOL at that.

A parabola (plural parabolas or parabolae, adjective parabolic, from Greek: παραβολή) is a two-dimensional, mirror-symmetrical curve.  y = x2
