Funny how this list will approve, 1up, and talk about the above [1],
yet censor actual discussion of more serious areas of cryptocurrency,
(note such with BTC being early on this list), which are in fact material
relavant to the "technical, social, political, security, privacy, legal,
and multinational aspects of cryptosystems' of its charter.

[1] which are btw old way news now having been out for ten months,
for which people are still rightfully free to evaluate investing in, using
them as currency, or collect / trade /  dispose on whim as deemed fit.

bcc cypherpunks, to witness esteemed lolcat and cute puppy
posters approved into the censorship / irony / fud log...  and where
you're actually free to cover relavant 'crypto' currency material,
and even trade cryptokitties :)
