Don't know how much has been said but I thought I'd throw my 2 p's worth in. Surely all this focus on Assange and Co. is exactly the plan of conspiritors against him (if not the many that have shooed him on his way)? When Wikileaks kicked off it was about the info, the stir that caused and a restoration of true democracy and made governments visible once more. Looks like thats been forgotten though; the mountains of information that's rightfully ours is now locked behind doors until banks stop blockading or Wikileaks radically changes its ways, for now this bitcoins idea looks sort of feasible. I just think this is a wasted oppourtunity and it goes against the spirit of anon. It goes against the basic principles of most of the people on this forum; I know that for sure. Maybe someone'll read this and agree, maybe not but it had to be said - we can't let these freedoms become re-shackled.
