So, theoretical this is a first control system where <some goverment> can arrest satoshi and demand
that he hands over his key (or get it from his computer) and shut down the complete network?

Or is that not possible? How far would <some goverment> get?
This is what makes me think the people objecting don't know what they're talking about.  It can't "shut down the complete network".
I've never objected this change/idea, just asking if this was possible and to what extent.
What's wrong with getting informed? Wink
My apologies, your post was indeed a question not a statement.

@mizerydearia, I think the quote button is easier to find then the reply one.

So, theoretical this is a first control system where <some goverment> can arrest satoshi and demand
that he hands over his key (or get it from his computer) and shut down the complete network?

Or is that not possible? How far would <some goverment> get?

A few rhetorical questions for satoshi:

Can you resist waterboarding?
Can you endure electric shock?
All forms of torture?
Lastly, are you Jack Bauer by any chance?   Seriously.
WRT the alert system, who cares?  The most the key can do is temporarily disable six json-rpc commands until the site owners either add the -disablesafemode switch or upgrade.  All nodes keep running and generating, the network stays up.  If I'm not available, any script kiddie can figure out how to add two characters and make a new version that disables the alert system.  It would be a temporary inconvenience only.

I admit I didn't know what I was talking about.  Just trying to understand what you are doing.

3) notify us using RSS/email/Jabber

That is too centralized/censorable/hackable, the idea with a message signed with specific private key only satochi has is ideal as it can be introduced at any node and spread trough decentralized means.
Well, most my nodes are running headless and I seldom open the GUI. So other means of notifications are still useful.

I did not understood the original Satoshi changes before he explained. So I agree now that the messages should be implemented.
