BCX Attack on Namecoin Called Off

In perhaps the best example of social engineering I've seen in a while, miner BitcoinEXpress may be bringing his experiment to a close. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=44149 I am sorry it took these drastic measures to get people's attention, but it wasn't until I had demonstrated lethality ...

Re: Some suggestions for merged mining release....

Re: Namecoin is Prime for a 51% attack

BitcoinEXpress: I'm a bit confused. About a week ago on bitcointalk.org, when a suggestion was brought up to build tools to attack blockchains, your response was "What a complete and total lack of class." https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=40772.msg505804#msg505804 Could you comment on how your...

Thus, many folks are reporting being unable to get any connections at startup. from http...
