I've been away from BitcoinTalk for a bit. Last time I checked in here regularly, BFL was leading people on and the whole thing didn't feel right. I'm glad to see this has found its way to the courts.

Are you blind?

His time posting was Today at 10:27:44

Yours is 12:56:29

Can you tell time?


Just pointing out there is no reason to clutter the forum with repeat posts.  But I understand why the other thread wasn't noticed....his title sucked.

I for one, am sick of the American Government sticking its hand into the businesses of its citizens and true captains of industry like BFL. The free market will decide when BFL gets shut down for scamming people over and over, not the FTC/Courts.

You're a free market libertarian?

No, I was sarcastically mocking the people on this forum who scream how Government is Satan incarnate but cheer when it finally takes down true scum like Sonny/Zerlan/BFL

So were the forum members, and the reddit guys
http://cryptoconspiracy.com/butterfly-labs-shutdown-by-the-us-government-following-a-court-case/
I am not sure how much the forum as a community (or any member of the forum) had to do with this. They have been under investigation for a long time (there was an article several months ago how one of the "higher ups" of BFL was on probation for mail fraud, and one condition of his parole (or may prohibition, I am not 100% sure which) was that he not run any kind of "gambling" operation, and the PO was arguing that BFL was a gambling operation because of how it's preorder system works
