Of course.  They're saving their greenbacks for the hardcore drugs they buy on the street.  The cause is not the coin, it's a lack of guidance and support through good parenting.

This.

Admit you're a bad parent and don't watch your kid, don't blame the coin.

Not saying that if your kid did it secretly but you are very strict or watch what your kid does, for that I commend you. It's just TOO MANY PEOPLE BLAME BITCOIN.

good for them.

in my day, i had to make my own fake id to
get into the bars. 

My parents helped me make my fake id, an altered photocopy of my birth certificate so I could get my first job a few months before legal age. I was eager to have my own money. Imagine someone like me ending up here.

How is it immoral exactly again?

Morality != legality, it might be legal to fuck your mates wife but it is immoral, same thing the opposite. I just don't see how this is bad unless you let the state dictate your morals.

Thanks to Bitcoin, I have been liberated from a life of wage-slavery.

I love the part about the Secret Services sting operation to catch those kids  Grin

LOL are they a bunch of overstaffed clowns, or did one of the Obama kids try to buy booze with one of these ID's?  Cheesy

Truth is the new hatespeech.

this is a non-news topic

for:
1) fake ID's are common
2) the link to the site providing ID's, does not look like a popular industry standard ID manufacturer, it looks like someones home workshop
3) the hype should be measured inline with a photography student making cards in a school locker room and being outed by the school newspaper..

in short, no big deal in real life international terms

Yep.

You are 100% spot on but the media will indeed do its thing.

LOL most kids can use photoshop like a pro and make IDs...and before btc they'd use cash to get them. I don't see the headline as anything more than typical bs fear mongering trying to spook people away from bitcoin.

You say "anti government" like that's a bad thing...

Not quite a morals issue, either.

If you fuck your mate's wife, and she had no say, then it's rape, which is illegal.
If you fuck your mate's wife and she consented, it's her choice over yours, so it's mostly just unfortunate for you  Grin

It doesn't always come down to bad parenting. Teenage kids are usually just rebellious and do this kind of stuff. How many people here used fake ID or drunk underage?

And of course buying fake ID with Bitcoin is no different than buying it was cash, and is probably easier and far nore prevelant to do so with it.

"Underage" kids buying fake Ids to subvert government laws?  Shocking  Shocked Shocked

We'd better ban Bitcoin before this trend catches on.
