Why 3 replies in a row, Stardust? Couldn't you just edit you 1st reply and include everything?
You can still do it now and remove the 2 other (now) useless replies

Pick one of those 2: People get confused to whom it's addressed if I reply all in one post, or I am lazy.

Then, why not multi-quote and insert each reply after each quote?
A forum is not a chatroom.
Also, I think everybody undertsands if you address each person you wish to reply to with an @someone
But, whatever, do as you wish.

But with regards to Bitcoin things will never go back to normal for you.

Not entirely true. Worst case he/she can always burn the knightmb identity. Even Satoshi is/are probably still hanging around here somewhere.

My Canary: I will never ask for a loan or offer escrow services. If someone does with this account, consider it compromised.

Haven't you read his last post here ?  He donated a lot of them to wikileak and he's still active on the new currency TimeCoin.

Yes I did. I don't understand your point. I was talking about options, not suggesting knightmb not participate however he/she chooses.

No he didnt. Thats the wikileaks BTC donation address: http://blockchain.info/address/1HB5XMLmzFVj8ALj6mfBsbifRoD4miY36v
Total received: 3400 BTC to date

What I meant earlier:
But with regards to Bitcoin things will never go back to normal for you.

Now that bitcoin changed his life for him personally, he can never go back to the point where he started off. Even if he gave everything away and changed his identity, he would still keep a galore of memories and went through so many life changing events due to bitcoin, he would never be the same person again. Also, his outside world is different now (unless he kept it a complete secret from everyone except this community and still lives in his Mom's basement;).
To say it with Peter Parker's words: "With great power comes great responsibility."

It is 'an' address, not 'the' address.

Ah. Thank you for clarifying. I'm just a little dense sometimes.

Whatever else eventually comes from bitcoin, it certainly has already created some really new and interesting experiences for a great many people, and stimulated alot of thought and creativity.

I hope his wallets are encrypted or stored on encrypted volumes and he has encrypted off-site backups.

Good news for me anyway  Tongue , they sold me the project for $5k to recover some of their cost. I now technically own the wallet files and other software I was working on with them at the time. For legal reasons I can't blurt out who the investors were or the banks, companies, etc. they were representing basically (unless I won't to land in court forever), but I think I made a wise investment. It's still going to take a while to get my wife on board as she still doesn't understand the whole BTC concept, but everyone here knows and I know what it means. She was really skeptical about my purchase this week.

I'll probably take some of the backup advise here too, why have a few backup copies when you can have many on different media types spread around everywhere (all encrypted of course this time).

Thanks for the advise everyone!

Michael Brown (knightmb), you have not told the full story here, and this is not the first time you have screwed an employer. If you do not do the right thing now, this will come back to haunt you.

You are also in over your head. Has it occurred to you that you owe $850,000 of federal income tax on this "deal"? Fortunately for you, we do not have state tax in Tennessee, but you will still owe business taxes, and you haven't even applied for the right licenses.

You have one chance to do the right thing here. You know what it is.
This should be fascinating. Quote's from 2011.

Another interesting quote from MBDonationFund.com:
"I am a self-employed wireless Internet service provider and web hosting/designed in Franklin, TN barely scratching out a living for my young family."

Don't mix your coins someone said isn't legal

Thread from Endless-sphere forum when people found out about him acquiring the BTC for $5,000.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

I kind of just read the first few posts in this thread.  But I figure something foul is afoot if he is still missing.  $100000 doesn't usually just go missing, looks like the next block chain should be dedicated to finding out just what happened to this fellow.

We know what happened to him.  He's far from "missing". 

He's begging for donations because the SS is investigating him for the Romney tax return ransom attempt.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=123591.0

And really, he last posted in June and his last activity on the board was on 4 October - there was no reason to be think that "something foul" was afoot.  It's always a good idea to read the last page of an old thread before commenting on its first few posts.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

So not only did he send a ransom letter to a presidential candidate he also donated a heap of bitcoins to an "enemy of the state" ...no wonder they kicked his door in.

This is ridiculous.  I just made a thread about the security of BTC.  I know the government is going to do something about this...I just wonder what.  They are viewing this board and pinging every single person's IP address, I'm sure of it. 

Either way, if they link this person's actions with BTC they should be aware that it is still alive and strong, very strong.  It would be a hard task to shut down a crypto currency that generates it's own value according to a blockchain.  Especially when there are homeless people on the street begging for USD...Hmm.  I smell something bad, something is not being handled correctly.

He says he made "large" donations to Wikileaks but that's a claim I'd take with a grain of salt.
