To what extent might DDoS Attacks be used to force compliance with the FATF's KYC directive? Over the past week a handful of companies in the Bitcoin ecosystem have radically changed their policies resulting in diminished US-based transaction flows (Paxum, Alertpay) or have been blocked from trade via DDoS attacks (BTC-e, Altarpay).  Have these companies been brought to heel? Or could it be that they ignored some sort of deadline resulting in aggressive action until they meet US AML standards? Are we self policing or has FINCEN become more aggressive?

Or maybe they object to certain operating practices?

I also object to lots of operating practices and I just have to accept them if those practices aren't hurting me or anyone else.
Disagreement is not a reason to commit crimes against the persons/services you disagree with.

What was it that btc-e.com was doing? Taking away your liberties, or something?
This forum is full of "children" who happen to be frustrated middle age fat men who still live on their moms basements playing games all day, and by your reply I see you are one of them.

You are funny!  But for fat old men who live in their mothers' basements, not so much!  A hypothesis is not an opinion.  BTC-e said "antiDDoS blocked ip" Admittedly, I don't know what that really means.  Do you? If so, please share.   Cheesy
