Bitcoin Magazine's journalistic integrity time of death... Tuesday, June 12th 11:46 Central Time.

It's all hype and link bait from here guys!

The next one needs to have the V for Vendetta mask interposed with a skull. That would look more awesome.

At 10:48 AM this morning of June 12th, one of our European representatives and the Managing Editor for Bitcoin Magazine, Mihai Alisie, arrived at a Romanian post office to claim 3 large and lately arrived shipments of the Bitcoin Magazine from customs.

Entering the offices and presenting his claim form, a middle-aged Romania Customs Officer...

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

I just mean don't forget to at least include the name of the country, otherwise, your reader is confused most of the way trying to picture "customs" without a clue in the world where you're talking about.  UK?  South Korea? etc.

Oh gosh, he made you read further to find out something you wanted to know?

Gosh, Real Marketers don't do stuff like that, do they?

What surprises me most is that they're shipping the magazines to Romania to be resent to the European customers who paid for them. Great management, no doubt.

I am planning logistics for issue #2. So you can blame me for "Great Management", whatever that means.

Coming back to states after a three week visit to India during the first week of '92, I found myself in line at customs in NYC with five large suitcases, each individually duct taped to the max, prepped such a way to survive the trip. While in line, I held two pieces of reading material: A leaflet outlining what I legally can and can't bring back to the States from India and a paperback book, of the which its title now eludes me. While waiting in the long line, I took it upon myself to read the leaflet to pass the time. I couldn't believe what I was reading. It seems that the main three things that you're not allowed to bring back to the US from India is exactly what I had in three of the five suitcases: mass quantities of silver; mass quantities of peacock feathers; and mass quantities of spices. After reading those lines, looking down the still line of people and seeing suitcases being opened and gone through, then slightly glancing at my suitcases, only one thought went through this half brain of mine--Midnight Express. My asshole still tightens up just thinking about certain scenes. At any rate, I finally reached the custom agent. A pleasant over-weight middle-aged woman. I just knew I was fucked when she asked what I was reading. I told her just this leaflet. She said no, the other one--the book. I held it up for her to see what I recall was a best seller at the time. And for the next five minutes we talked about the book and how she just read it, liked it, etc. Afterward, she asked me--wait for it--do you have any mass quantities of... or... or...? I lied to her and said no, and even asked if she wanted me to open all the suitcases for me to show her. She said no, then welcomed me back to the United States. I then went to my next connecting flight heading to O'hare without a worry in the world with my mass quantities of...

In the thread title "interviewed" should be replaced by "interrogated".  Wink
