Hi guys, I with all thats happening now I think (yea no hard proof) most of it is being done on purpose (transaction mutation) by some pool/entity. I have posted here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=463350.0 of how to go about finding out if its some pool doing it. This does in no way

What is the official response from the Bitcoin Core developers about MtGox's assertion that their problems are due to a fault of bitcoin, as opposed to a fault of their own? The technical analysis preluding this mess, was that MtGox was at fault for their faulty wallet implementation. Drak

Well done Gavin for quickly setting the record straight[1] officially as project lead. MtGox tried to blame their issues by throwing Bitcoin under a bus and I am glad there has been a public rebuttal showing up their incompetence which is doing harm to the bitcoin eco system. Basically, yes there

If you've got any ideas for a better forum, let me know. MtGox is one of the largest public faces of the code being developed here. If the public perception is that this is a bitcoin protocol flaw, then we need some damned strong and compelling public arguments about why it ain't so. But after
