Everyone already knew it is one of those two. Responding and choosing the easiest option doesnt take courage or make him any more liable. It would actually reduce liability. I agree he is not hiding, but he is being smart. A few words can save him a lot of trouble and lot of pestering by the media. If it was me (and I indeed made a mistake, or I had malicious intentions), I would have done the same. Not because I am courageous or anything, because that is the safest thing to do, right now.

Not sure why that was moderated as overrated. Just to be clear that was not a joke. If you create paper wallets, and store your bitcoins in them (in whatever denominations you like, I use 1 BTC per wallet), no virus or malware or some e-wallet getting hacked, can get to your bitcoins.

You can write the most insightful/thrilling/useful article ever in the history of mankind, but if you place it on a site where people get a lot of ads they will still accuse you of treachery.

Read the first line of the post you are responding to "It's difficult to claim "clickbait" when there are no ads!

+ - Once Slashdot beta has been foisted upon me, what site should I use instead? 2

The new beta interface seems very well suited to tablets/phones but, it ignores the fact that the user base is, as one would expect, nerds sitting in front of very large LCD monitors and wasting their employers time. It's entirely possible that the browser ID information gathered by the site has indicated that they get far more hits on mobile devices where the new interface is reasonable but, I feel that no one has analyzed the browser ID (and screen resolution) against comments modded +5. I think you will find that most +5 comments are coming from devices (real fucking computers) that the new interface does not support well. Without an interface that invites the kind of users that post +5 comments, Slashdot is just a ho-hum news aggregation site that allows comments. So, my question is, once the beta is the default, where should Slashdot users go to?"
