To what extent is Bitcoin Magazine associated with user paraipan? I ask because he is advertising the magazine in his signature.

See this thread:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=64176.0

He filed a legal complaint against Bitcoinica with the Spanish police because he has an issue with potential money laundering and/or unregulated speculation. 

All the while, he has a little "business" selling fiat currency for Bitcoins.  (Which somehow doesn't have the potential money laundering problems... really...)

Seems like the petty move of a spiteful bitter man.

I hope Bitcoin Magazine isn't associated with him in any way.  If you are I won't be ordering any more issues after this first one.  What is your refund policy by the way?

So, paraipan's link to Bitcoin Magazine was just removed from his signature with no response in this thread.

Does this indicate that he is involved in the magazine, and you all are trying to keep it quiet until it blows over?

i was asked politely to remove the link. Have been invited to be a part of the Bitcoin Magazine team as a spanish translator and I have contributed nothing of importance to the Magazine until this date. I will gladly keep up the good work if the team doesn't want me to leave.

Dear Bitcointalk.org users,

We at Bitcoin Magazine were unaware of the actions or intentions of the user paraipan and subsequently asked him to remove the reference to Bitcoin Magazine in his signature. He volunteered to work for the magazine as a Spanish translator but has not had any direct involvement with the development of the magazine to date. His actions do not in any way reflect the opinions of Bitcoin Magazine. His future at the magazine is pending further discussion.

Sincerely,

Bitcoin Magazine

I read this in Herme's voice.

Anyways, as a Bitcoin Magazine customer that knows Matthew is a convicted BitcoinTalk scammer, this couldn't change my view of the magazine in any way.

The Communists say, equal labour entitles man to equal enjoyment. No, equal labour does not entitle you to it, but equal enjoyment alone entitles you to equal enjoyment. Enjoy, then you are entitled to enjoyment. But, if you have laboured and let the enjoyment be taken from you, then – ‘it serves you right.’ If you take the enjoyment, it is your right.

Matthew has kindly suggested that I put a disclaimer at end of all troll posts, so here it is.

Everytime I go to sleep.... Christ.

Since this magazine is something from the community and for the community, naturally we want to include the community as much as possible. That seldom ends up in including people who are all exactly the same in every way. I didn't know Paraipan had an issue with Bitcoinica because paraipan is not in the DCAO (where we usually discuss issues openly and find solutions before taking action) but now that I do, I've explained some things that everyone here will find out soon as well and will clear up everything.

There is nothing wrong with paraipan doing what he did though given the information that he had. He doesn't know Zhoutong like I do, nor did he bother to research Singaporean law and get to the bottom of all the legalities of Bitcoinica. Absolutely nothing will come of the police report paraipan filed, and within a month the information paraipan wanted will be made available to the entire community anyway so please don't be so butthurt about it.

Also, paraipan speaks Spanish and English. He wants to be a part of the magazine translating. Whenever I can use him, I will. Just...let's start asking questions first people. There are literally thinktanks just sitting around waiting for inquiries and everyone seems to just get bored and run off on tangents.

Exact same thing I was thinking, that was a weird post. Matthew went on vacation and some guy had a link in his sig. Going from there to "everything blowing up" is a bit of a stretch.
