There's a possibility it can be restored. Hopefully a person who gives access to wallet sources can make sure that a person who unlocks the wallet won't take everything as a reward.

There is a secure way to do this. He can provide just an empty private key (or better yet one with a low value).

It's just a troller, too bad you can't read italian, but there is nothing you are missing.

My anger against what is wrong in the Bitcoin community is productive:

Nope, that's what takes away the last bit of credibility.

I'll be interested in two things, and I'll make some of my own estimates for the fun of it:

1)  Ratio of BTC lost due to forgotten passphrase vs. those to stolen wallet.dat's:
1e) 10/1

2)  First post here from someone needing to know how to get their coins from an encrypted wallet due to forgetting their passphrase:
2e) 3 days

Don't get me wrong...I think this is good an necessary work and I thank the dev team for it and all the other work.  But I do anticipate the encryption contributing to the 'deflationary' nature of the currency


 edit:  Note the date.  This comment was made in association with the release of 0.4-ish.

Wow I can't believe some people
Luckily I remember 99% passwords without the need of writing down anything.

Quite a number of bitcoins have been lost already, deflation^2.

He will most likely send a wallet.exe file to anyone who asks, saying it's an auto-extractible zip file. Grin

the guy at walletrecoveryservices.com has a pretty good track record

he takes all the info the user can remember about the passphrase and starts bruteforce from there, I believe his fee is 15%

This is not some pseudoeconomic post-modern Libertarian cult, it's an un-led, crowd-sourced mega startup organized around mutual self-interest where problems, whether of the theoretical or purely practical variety, are treated as temporary and, ultimately, solvable.
Censorship of e-gold was easy. Censorship of Bitcoin will be… entertaining.

for a service with a track record of not running off with people's money?  sure

8.5M > 0.00

What about the guy that threw his HDD with 7600 coins and is now digging through dirt to find it?
