A few years back, Astroglide had a data breach where anyone who had ordered a free sample from their website had their personal data leaked. Among the data, many many people had ordered a sample sent to George W. Bush.

That's the story. Consumerist got it from me, as you can see. Smiley I was quite fortunate to be able to break the story.

And while doing that, include a copy of "1984".  Roll Eyes

Back on topic. When someone sends the peanut oil or the butt plug, the name of the sending company will be most likely on the package. If I would get a package delivered from "ACME Peanut processing" and I would be allergic... I would not accept it (I didn't order it anyway). Same goes for the politician. Plus I think politicians don't accept packages themselves.. and they would go through an x-ray or so before opening them.

So basically if I'm careful I can get away with ordering someone a butt plug with cash, and if I'm careful I can get away with ordering someone a butt plug with bitcoins... can you see why I fail to see this as a real problem or at least a bitcoin specific one?

The question I raised was, is it a problem (if a minor one) for a merchant. Someone who is going to be an asshole can be one without any specific tools ( though a butt plug may make them a bigger asshole   Grin ).

In either case you are unlikely to be able to find the culprit. So a particularly annoyed target may take out their irritation on who they can find.

In the case of a debit card you have the merchant who shipped the product, the card issuer and the store that sold the card all sharing the irritation of the target.

In the case of bitcoin there is just the merchant to put up with all the complaints.

Edit: Also since it is a bit easier to do with bitcoins than a debit card, it could be more common with bitcoin accepting merchants.

I like the idea of an anonymous currency. But like anything it has a set of issues that people need to be aware of so those issues can be worked around or prepared for. This may or may not be one of them, but the idea occurred to me and I though it might be interesting to discuss it.

Perhaps merchants selling products particularly prone to mischief would become selective, and only choose to sell to customers with a good reputation.  Who knows?  Let the free market work!
