Anyone can start a Newbie account anytime and post with a different name for free.

Thank you for your donation. I love the forum. And thank you for your sane posts. I always look forward to them

Forgive my petulance and oft-times, I fear, ill-founded criticisms, and forgive me that I have, by this time, made your eyes and head ache with my long letter. But I cannot forgo hastily the pleasure and pride of thus conversing with you.

The new armed robbery.

So they lost about 1/3 of one days ECB printing...  or 0.06% of their current QE tranche.  Oh Dear.

Thinking about that...  If the same headline was true 20 times per week, every week, for the next year and a half, it wouldn't soak up what they ADMIT to printing.  Sick.

well, but there is a difference between losing money of government/bank-backed fiat kind and losing decentralised BTCs, right?
In the first case, there are certain guarantees to protect you from a loss, even if that means 'let's print some more money', in the latter case, once the money is gone it is gone for good. Unless the receiving party will send it back to you. I just can't find the reason for doing so.

In the former case the banks loss is covered by increasing everyones premiums and insurances or with a bail out by governments in the form of QE monetary dilution. In the latter the company that lost all the BTC either goes bankrupt or recompenses customers loss, plus all of their contemporaries are incentivised into making stronger storage systems.

When you come down to it, the primary complaint detractors have against bitcoin is they cannot socialize their own losses, that are a result of their own incompetence, on others . The prospect that they will directly bear the consequences of their own bad decisions, and not be able to force their loses on others, scares them to death.

Those of us who are sick and tired of have other people's losses forced on us (as uki promotes), look at bitcoin as a salvation.

It's even more than that.

It's that with Bitcoin they recognize they can't purposefully exploit the system to their own advantage for enormous profits, let alone offload their losses.

Nailed it. Another thing is that abandoning personal responsibility for the supposed safety of the "experts" or authorities makes you incapable of critical thought and independence. You can see the same effect in pretty much every area where government is heavily involved. Nowadays people can't even educate their own children, care for their own health, plan their own retirement or handle their own money. A pretty sad state of affairs which can imo be only remedied by relocating responsibility where it belongs and where it is most effective: with the individual.

It's all bullshit. But bullshit makes the flowers grow and that's beautiful.

I'd suggest your taking it slightly too far here, a person can not be an expert in everything, there simply is not enough time in the day. TRUST being the key issue. I trust a teacher to provide a good education or a service to perform as they claim. Obviously due diligence is an important factor but an unwatched business will frequently cut corners/ take extra risk to make a profit. (hence the misconception regulation will improve the status quo). The point most detractors don't seem to realise is that theoretically at least, Bitcoin businesses have the potential to eliminate the need for trust entirely.  (just wish more of them would implement it already)

This is hugely valuable and seldomly mentioned in the mainstream media.

Agree. For businesses: almost instant payment, no chargeback, multisig (no siphoning off funds), smart contracts (no reneging on deals). Main thing to solve is to verify the delivery from Person A to Person B without using a third party.
