I have never been sent to jail for any of the al-qaeda bitcoin payments I've received.  This is in stark contrast with the two life sentences I served for the previous PayPal payments they sent to me.

Sam Spade: We were talking about a lot more money than this.
Kasper Gutman: Yes, sir, we were, but this is genuine coin of the realm. With a dollar of this, you can buy ten dollars of talk.

AlQ (somewhere in a cave on the Pakistan / Afghan border)

Terrorist 1: Brother what shall we do today? Raid a shopping mall? Hijack an airplane? Build a dirty bomb?

Terrorist 2: No no my brother in arms. I have a cunning plan. There is a wise man in the motherland of our enemies. His magnificant theories are a threat to our cause.

Terrorist 1: No no brother it is not fair to blow up a man in a wheelchair...

Terrorist 2: No you idiot (kicks him), I am not speaking about Stephen Hawkins. The man who is our enemy is wiser than him...

Terrorist 1: Michael Moore?

Terrorist 2: (Hits him with the but of his AK47) No that fat oaf is not worth our semtex. There is another - he is the sage known as 'TheoryOfBitcoin'.

Terrorist 1: (getting excited) How shall we kill him brother - mail bomb, assasination, drive by shooting?

Terrorist 2: You idiot! By Allah's beard do you have no imagination? My plan uses our enemy against him. He will be undone by those idiots at the NSA.
We will.... (pauses for effect) send him 1 bitcoin!

Terrorist 1: (accidentally slips into East London accent) Not out of my f**king wallet mate....cold storage, never gonna sell, bullish all the way.

Terrorist 2 shoots Terrorist 1 and wanders out of the cave shaking his head.

What if you are shopping at the grocery store and the terrorist in line in front of you pays for his Cherrios with a ten dollar bill. Then when you pay for your Fleet enema with a twenty dollar bill, you get the terrorist's ten dollar bill as change. The NSA can track Federal Reserve Notes, they have serial numbers! Now you are in possession of evil illegal terrorist money. You could be in jail getting your enemas from Jimmy the Tooth!

I think I found a huge flaw with Federal Reserve Notes!
Incredible choice of items! Thanks for the laugh.

I think the OP is mad! Think before you post please!

Firstly, I want to thank psy for the PM making me aware of these posts, of which was the extent of said PM.

At least "serial poster" is a far cry from the last time Boussac addressed me. (I may have to dig up that epic post)

This is really odd! I've never received an email or PM from anybody associated with InstaWallet pertaining to the three wallets they have been so kind to watch over, with this being the first contact hence, and at the risk of posting of off-topic.

I'm currently on the road to Atlanta, staying at a Paducah, KY, tonight. I'm using my new laptop, thus don't have the three original IW URL's handy, but believe I posted two of them on IW's main thread.

I filled out the forms via what was displayed at the time when I visited all three URLs  when the initial claim process was in place. After doing such, I got a thank you and we will be in touch page (paraphrased). About a week or so afterwards, I was no longer able to do anything on all three pages, not that I wanted too. The only thing displayed on all three URLs was some standard veriabe, of which currently eludes me.

Two wallets, one of which contained exactly 1,000 BTC and the other was either 132.xxx BTC or 123.xxx BTC (honestly didn't remember which, but submitted the 123.xxx amount, of which I don't remember what the .xxx(xxxxx) was, thus rounded it down to 123 BTC), I didn't have have the wallet addresses, but the form at the time was designed to submit as much info as possible. The third wallet had .84(x) BTC (if I recall correctly) of which I did have the Bitcoin address, but that one supposedly had two other claims on it for some reason, thus assuming that's why it would take that one longer to process. The other two I assumed would take longer because they were both over the 50 BTC threshold, also assuming that they would be processed after IW is finished processing all the lesser claims. Awhile back, I was taken aback when I notice, and commented upon, that IW principal(s) were being paid out their over 50 BTC claims.

Shy of posting periodically on various threads in a civil tone, I have stopped my vitriol attacks against IW due mainly by an email (maybe it was a PM) by a user stating that I would have better luck with my claim if I ended said attacks. I was assured, in no uncertain terms, that it'll all work out if given IW time.

As I've mentioned before, prior to IW going dark, I was an advocate of InstaWallet. In fact, a few days prior to them going dark, there was a concern thread up of which I started raising questions since I knew what I had at stake at the time, but my concerns were laid to rest by one of the principals (don't believe it was Boussac, and sorry for not posting link, but will later, but easy to find) and, ironically, by psy, of which I'm not placing any blame, but it was his words at the time that laid my concern to rest.

On April Fool's day, InstaWallet went dark. I wasn't made aware of it till about three days later by Greywolf via some other thread and somehow the subject came up, all of which I posted the chain of said events in IW's claim thread.

Reading between the lines of Boussac's comment months ago, and the "serial poster" comment above, I'm beginning to believe that my funds, among a handful of others is financing Paymium/Bitcon-Central. I'm sure that somehow my over a quarter of million dollars evaluated at the time due to the exchange rate was moved during the hack, and either some hacker got it or, as I've stated, Team IW allocated the funds.

Quarter mil, that's gotta sting a little. Is there anyone that's been using Bitcoin for more than a year that hasn't been fucked out of a bunch of money?

A bit under 2 BTC from the Bitfloor hack, wasn't worth that much at the time, but I'd sure like to have it back now...

First time this factual, usable information is brought to my attention (in a VERY large pile of ranting posts).

Please provide claim number, status and amount in your PM (or simpler, the wqllet key that contains all three information).

If your claim was not paid there must be a reason and your claim status tells you about it:
- multiple claims for the same wallet with different payout addresses
- large amount balance that requires identification before payout.
etc
Think about helping us determine that you are the rightful owner and provide at least your claim number, balance and claim status.

What is your claim number and status ? (please PM me or Arsy).

Now I realize that we have a communication problem, Gage. I am not at trained psychiatrist prepared to deal with serious cases of paranoïa. When I started the IW topic I naively expected you to read my post. Instead it was just an opportunity for you to project your preconceived opinion about me and my colleagues: rest assured, I am not tyring to convince you otherwise nor to shut you up. Simply provide me via PM with the information that I need to sort out your (big) case.
The only PM I received from you so far is dated december 29, 2012, totally unrelated to IW.
