The Bitcoin Forum is a website meant to host free discussion of Bitcoin and related topics. It is operated as a service to the community, and all profit is reinvested into the forum. It was started in 2009 by Satoshi Nakamoto, the original creator of Bitcoin. It is now managed by Malmi Martti (Sirius), Stefan Thomas (justmoon), and Michael Marquardt (theymos). Donated funds are managed by theymos.

Private Internet Access provides free hosting for the forum. Check them out for anonymous VPN tunnels. They accept Bitcoin!

Looks like someone got one here, too:

Two different source IPs for each of the emails.

Doesn't look like anyone has fallen for it yet, though:

EDIT: Whoops, read the second one wrong.

Huh, both are orginally from Russia, St. Petersburg. This looks almost like a static IP/cable modem. The machine is still up right now.

Any reputable Bitcoin service should use GPG-signed emails. Any unsigned email should be considered with a grain of salt.

Well that is why I knew it wasn't from theymos, but people could believe it was coinbase cause coinbase is trying to be the "gmail" to bitcoin's "SMTP". So I doubt they will ever use PGP.
