It just doesn't add up for me.  Why risk incurring negative backlash?

Besides which, shouldn't China's central bank have been prepared to handle DoS attack long before this?

Whoever owns rights to that photo of the Casascius coin stash must be loaded. It's practically the Bitcoin logo in journalism... probably pretty confusing to the uninitiated when they go on to invariably say Bitcoins only exist online. Cheesy

This could've been done by anyone, nobody claimed responsibility, and a soft ban on bitcoins is hardly the Chinese government's most extreme act of oppression. MSM outlets would do well to stop pushing speculation and instead try rebuilding credibility with actual news.
