I was looking around the site tonight/this morning (Thanks insomnia) and noticed that we can pay with bitcoins for a subscription, then I noticed that the bit coin link goes to Mt Gox, who I am sure I saw a federal warranty go out to take the account for them, does this affect geekzone?

Note: If I got affect/effect wrong I really dont care, its to early to care about much.

Mt Gox should be registered as a money transfer institution according to the US authorities. Any action against Mt Gox seems to affect its operations inside the US only. and it seems to continue to operate in other jurisdictions.

Also, is not like a lot of people use Bitcoins to pay for subscriptions - most come through Paypal using the good old credit card...
