To be honest, I'm a bit disappointed. From the thread title, I was hoping you were going to argue that Pirate@40 and BFL were conspirators in a gigantic doomsday scheme through cybernetically enhanced bugs, funded by BFL and Pirate, swarming throughout the world, entering computers, and stealing Bitcoin wallets. Now that would have been something.
Exactly the way I feel.
I thought this was about pirate and BFL being employed by the government shapeshifting alien reptilian overlords from Nibiru Planet X to screw us BTC miners over !
