What’s up today?

I guess bullying random people wasn’t such a great call:

Especially if we consider who has bigger influence:

Usually the last roll of the dice for a desperate person/group. And he lost, it was a pathetic attempt anyhow with two bit lawyers who needed to proof read their letter too.

Absolutely. I wasn’t sure it wasn’t just some kid trolling around. Until I saw the fallout. (CZ casually promised to cover for Peter McCormack’s legal fees on Twitter by the way. Wright may be rich but I doubt he has comparable resources.)

It’s so ironic though. The real Satoshi could just claim being Satoshi by sending a single transaction. We know the public key and if somebody gives a valid signature it’s pretty much case closed.

So, why bother with the theater, the arguing, the legal threats? The only reason for not providing such a simple evidence is that he’s unable to. How can an obvious fraud like him be accepted by a sizable community is beyond me…

Today this very corrupt Supreme Courte of InJustice in Brazil is closing accounts of people, magazine (anyone) who speak the truth about them, or send forward TRUE information about their fraudulent schemes of the past DECADES! Safenetwork we need you! My twitter account was suspended!

I wonder if it is a coincidence you also have to be 18 to be able to vote in the UK.

I’m sure a lot of brain activity goes into trying to get votes. See this episode of Yes Ministor for example.

We want the UK to be the safest place in the world to be online, and these new laws will help us achieve this.

I wonder how this is happening:

Stop thinking like a good, law-abiding citizen. Whatever you know about technology, forget it. If you want to stay safe online, you need to start thinking like a hacker. And hackers are more paranoid about digital technology than anyone else in the world.

Reminds me of our government’s attempt to censor the internet and banning sites that link to sites that link to … the banned site

It is the age they have decided a person is responsible for their own actions. Under 18 suggests you are the responsibility of a parent or guardian, for right or wrong.

Tbh, it isn’t consistently applied though. Parents or guardians who ‘nurture’ thugs don’t seem to have to take much responsibility.
