First decide why the BBS should be here and what purpose it should serve.

What really happened:

1. Someone sent you spam via the private message feature of the BBS.
2. The BBS emailed you a copy since you have the option enabled to email you whenever you receive a message.
3. You forwarded a copy of the email notification to me (Michael Hampton) and asked how FTL got your email address.
4. I responded to your email with the date you signed up for the FTL BBS and your last login date.

In short, please learn how to read.

Yes, the site's back up, but I'm going to take it down again later tonight since this little episode exposed a problem that should have been fixed over a year ago, and I'm going to take care of that now.

Ahhh, 18th century thinking in the 21st century world. I wonder what Adam Smith or Murray Rothbard would have thought of the Internet.

Dale, go back to Gaylaxicon or wherever you've been. :P

Since today is the TRUE April Fools Day I thought I'd give it a try to call in and talk about taxes.  After 53:28 on hold on the amp line while Ian and Mark (and the girl) chat up a storm and finally take two callers (ignoring the amp line) I gave up.  I was hoping that the show would eventually get back to it's roots and REALLY be a show about the callers, but I see that's not the case.  And since it's not Saturday (as Ian always likes to use as his excuse to keep talking and ignoring the callers) the traffic cannot be blamed.

Anyway, maybe I'll try again in 6 months...

Not their fault. The AMP lines were not routing calls into the studio correctly. The problem has been fixed.

Wow, now I've wasted both Gene's and your time. Hehe.

I think Error deserves a PayPal tip for that one.

Can someone explain to me exactly WHY this thread was deleted?

Because Boner Joe got a stick up his ass to grab attention.  Same reason he immediately started trolling me, in specific, when I pointed it out (but it didn't work, so he stopped quickly.)

If Boner Joe really wants a stick up his ass... ENJOY!.

I don't know how this ad buy came about, but given that the company is still embroiled in controversy over false and misleading claims, and which may still be deceiving its customers, I wouldn't have taken a dime of their money or risked damaging FTL's reputation by running their ads.

It's just as well if they've canceled. I suspect FTL's audience, being younger and more Internet savvy, was put off by the lack of a website and coupon code in the reads, and even more put off by the company's many missteps.

I'd show her a real life.

Still no idea what it has to do with the title, though.

I just had a conversation with someone about any/all encryption in general.  The basic point was this; don't believe that anything is private, or secure.  US military, and therefore likely other intel agencies, have the ability to crack anything, and "in not much time", too.

And why should anyone believe this?

If you're asking why anyone would believe what this person told me, I can only tell you why I did..  It's because I know very little about it, I have no reason to think this person is dishonest, and this discussion is this person's very unique job.

If you're asking why anyone would believe me, and my claim that I had this discussion, the only reason I can think of is that I haven't proven to be a liar yet.

I've asked around, and as it turns out, I just don't know enough about encryption to resolve all that I've been told on my own.  Virtually everyone, though, assured me that Bitcoin was secure, and private.  I'd really like to think that's the case.  I'll probably exchange for some, and hope it proves to be.

Ah, the problem is not with your statement, but that of your friend.

While nobody outside the military, NSA, whoever, really knows what their capabilities are, it's highly unlikely that anyone who does know would be allowed to talk honestly about it with uncleared persons (like yourself). This makes it most likely that your friend has fed you an official story given to him by his superiors, which is cleared for release because it advances a government objective. (It is, in fact, an official story I've heard being disseminated before.) It's unlikely that your friend is aware that he's spreading official propaganda.

Now, with that out of the way, every single instance I've been able to find of the government "cracking" strong encryption has been because they got hold of the password through means other than actually cracking the crypto, such as finding it taped to the bottom of the keyboard, rubber hosing, keyloggers, etc.
