Because if he was lying, the actual winner is extremely likely to issue a "nuh uh. *I* won the auction" statement

Which would have exactly the same weight.

Funny thing is that Tim Draper waited almost 5 days to come forward and tell that he won the auction... just when he saw anyone else was doing it. So, my statement remains: There is zero evidence he actually won the auction except for his word.

Seriously, in this shady world of bitcoin, where people lie and deceit all the time how can anyone take someone word for granted?

There is zero evidence Tim Draper was the auction winner, except for is own statement, that's not backed up by absolutely anything.

Even more, I clearly remember the days where Mark Karpelles was a great guy, a visionary, an entrepreneur that embraced bitcoin... look at what the "bitcoin people" say about him now.

What policy forces people to have debt and who is "we" that determined it? People have debt because of their own doing. Blame yourself for your debt, not someone else.

You are right sir. I guess most of the world population could just live in the street... or you know, not eat. That way they would be free of debt. FREEDOM!

Why is the ever increasing value a problem? Multiply the number of BTC that exists (or that will ever exist... about double what we have now), per it's price in USD. Now compare that to the world GDP... it's much, much lower, so no... BTC is not overpriced, in fact, far from it in case it want to become a real currency.

It would be a bit dumb to whoever has 20% of the coin to just dump it. He would loose a huge amount of money that way.

What would happen - assuming that person had an average or above average IQ - is that he will start selling it's bitcoins slowly.

At the moment, if you sell 1000 BTC in MtGox over the course of a day (so, 20 BTC per hour), the impact in the price is minimal, so that person could cash out 1 million dollars per day without affecting the price considerably./b>

So while I agree that both should be unacceptable, the reality is that one is much more unacceptable as a direct result of [arbitrarily long time frame] in which women have been treated as either property or second class citizens.

So I guess that a group of black people came and enslaved you wouldn't feel it was that much unacceptable, right? I mean, after all it's just a direct result of [arbitrarily long time frame] in which women black people have been treated as either property or second class citizens.

Damn, some way in which the USA is better?

If you consider that being denied access to certain aspects of the outside world while being held in jail waiting to go to court, is worst than being sodomized and stabbed in some American jail, then yes, USA is certainly better in that regard.
