Apparently, It turns out that he was just flat out lying to me:

I'd like to clarify that my comment was just in reference to ALL government laws being threats of violence, and ultimately death threats for those who don't comply. Other than general legal uncertainty about Bitcoin and crypto coins in general, I'm not aware of any government agents targeting shared send or Blockchain.info directly with threats of violence other than the usual things like "You must get permission from us in the form of a business license to do much of anything".

(emphasis mine)

I think this further emphasis his acceptance, even desire, for Bitcoin to become yet another centralized payment rail... when his excuse for removing pro-privacy features (even if not very good ones...) is to claim that they were removed because government action of any form merely exist.

Thanks for creating this thread, or otherwise I never would have known this-- and I'd be left thinking that specific legal action had been taken against that feature. I also wouldn't have learned about the other things going on at BC.i that have come up in these threads. Interesting!

I've been scouring this thread for info, but all I've seen is speculation about the buy/sell being added to the wallet, which was confirmed today on github.

Is that the "other things" you were referring to? Or did I miss something juicy?

Don't feel special, Ver lies to everyone. Watch out, he may sue you like he did to other Bitcoiners.
