Leaving assite entirely the debate over death penalty to begin with, when we have to put down our pets, vets don't seem to have any trouble putting them to sleep, (and then inject more and more until sleep becomes permanenet.) Maybe the state just needs to fire to their medical experts and hire some country vet?

I think more regulation on Bitcoin trades can only serve to help protect people from Ponzi schemes. No, I'm not like those other people who call Bitcoin a Ponzi, they are not. However, the exchanges that are now springing up are amost a perfect recipe for one. Someone sets up an exchange, pople open accounts to which they deposit money to engage in bitcoin trading, exchange operators help themselves to funds, either for operational expenses or to line their pockets, and instead back the accounts with bitcoin, bitcoin innevitably suffers a 'market correction,' there's a run on the cash accounts, and the exchange can't keep up with the cash withdrawals, voila, classic ponzi.

The 'crime' here was violatoin of terms of service. It was the equivalent of having out too many library books at the same time. It is the *same* Federal crime as creating a Facebook or Google+ profile under an assumed name.

Prosecuters refused any plea bargain that did not involve jail time because Aaron was politically emberassing to some.

Nix on that one. MS security essentials is the only anti-virus that did more damage than an actual Virus. With default settings, SE took it upon itself to delete an entire e-mail folder in thunderbird, silently and with no warning, because of a simple e-mail virus. Not quarantine, mind you, just outright delete.

This system will self-destruct in five minutes.
