Obviously we disagree on a lot of things. Which is fine and normal. I agree with you that privacy in Bitcoin is a huge concern for instance. I disagree that mass surveilling all activity in Bitcoin is easy.

BREAKING: just announced it’s coming out swinging to tell DHS and CBP it doesn’t consent to immigration checks on buses. The steps it’s taking look an awful lot like the ones we recommended. Imitation is our favorite form of flattery.
