Lets say it this way....
If you buy a camero from a dealership and you found out that this one dealer was getting hit by bandits that store parts from their cars, you might stop buying from that dealer and go to another. The camero itself is not the problem, but that one dealer. The bad publicity might make people think it's a problem with the cameros but after they realise what really happened, they will contnue as normal.
Huge difference... I can physically have a Camero sitting in my driveway. I can drive it, wash it on the weekend, take the wife and kids for a spin in it, etc. It is a physical purchase.
Those who are financially tied into Bitcoin can feel free to label me a hater or whatever else they feel the need to say to attempt to protect their *ahem* "investment" in their own mind and the minds of other whose peace of mind Bitcoin's "value" is dependent on, I honestly don't care. The fact is that it is beyond ridiculous to see the same people who bitch about how the dollar is a "fiat currency" are often the ones advocating and purchasing the completely imaginary and arbitrary Bitcoins. It is about as ridiculous as seeing Level 500 Paladins with Platinum tier loot from World of Warcraft being auctioned off on Ebay for $850. The digital age seems to have stripped more than a few folks of their sanity and common sense.
