Regulating bitcoin

From: Mike Robinson 
I, for one, would welcome regulation of Bitcoin ... -and- very serious =
and objective official scrutiny of it ... for reasons aforementioned.

"I smell a great big rat," as well as "and two to take him."  In my =
opinion this is -not- "merely a high-tech barter currency" (which, in =
any form, is perfectly legal ...) but a very, very clever charade.  I =
fear that a great many people stand to be very-hurt by this, and that it =
is therefore very appropriate to turn the lights on in the kitchen.  =
(And if no(!) rats are seen scurrying for the comfort of the =
utensils-drawer ... ugh ... then "so be it.")=
