I agree with the OP in principle, but in reality those FBI coins (stolen, robbed coins) are going into circulation one way or another ...

this idea seems like it would set a dangerous precedent. If people decide to start blocking coins doesn't that defeat the purpose of bitcoin?

This, never support the idea of blocking coins ever.

Just like the "if you are doing nothing wrong you have nothing to fear" bullshit.  Be VERY afraid of who ever uses that line.. it is a fav of most dictators.

"The FBI is a violent underground organization that stole from an innovative startup." - That is how you say it in bitcointalk-eze. If you translate it to English it reads...
"The FBI busted a drug dealer and took his money."

"The FBI is a violent underground organization that stole from an innovative startup."

As much as I love that phrasing, blacklisting is a very bad idea. It was up to the innovative startup to protect their wallets with strong encryption and/or use cold wallets. They must have expected an encounter with that violent underground org sooner or later, no? But maybe they were consuming too much of their own products?   Wink

Well, they will in any case certainly disrupt things for us all if they have even a small degree of success in this mindless endeavour.

Soo.. when they intervene .. its ok. When the people do it.. its disruptive.

I'm sure the Africans who conned, captured and sold their people to the slave traders, thought the same thing when someone with a conscience would have his/her say.

If/when the coins are blocked or taken back, the world WILL stand up and take notice of our small but significant victory.

And as such.. cryptos will skyrocket. Wink

That would not exactly be accurate.

The United States (and other countries) have rules and laws that must be followed and enforced.

If a rule and/or law if broken then there must be consequences.

This is similar to how Bitcoin works as if you try to spend an input that does not exist, your TX will not be confirmed, and/or if you try to scam people on the forums others will not wish to do business with you and depending on the severity, other will try to dox you.

Disappointing to see that over a quarter of the people in this forum still haven't got a clue about how decentralised currencies are supposed to work.  The two possible correct answers are either 'NO', or simply not bothering to vote for an option at all because stupid poll is stupid.

Go and start your own Tardcoin that isn't fungible if you want to be able to block transactions and balances.  You don't belong here.
It's just over a quarter of People, who look into this thread.
There have been so many threads about blacklisting coins and all the good arguments against it, have also been used many times. So, I think most experienced users are just ignoring such threads.

Me either.
It's funny how when Mike Hearn even mentioned "coin taint" these forums went nuts with hateful, crackpot retaliation. Now that the FBI has coins people are screaming for a central authority to block coins.
It's a bad idea and it wont work anyway. Me or someone else will just buy the tainted coins cheap and sell them to you after a bath.

This is the problem with the OP's solution. The coins would be "tainted" and thus have less value then other bitcoin. The purchaser of such bitcoin could simply use a mixer to make it look as if their coins did not come from the FBI. Since most mixers are automated the mixer would have no idea that they have exchanged "tainted" coins for untainted coins until after the fact, they would be holding tainted coins due to no fault of their own
