The latest from Filan Law - Individual Defendants respond to SEC's letter regarding public statement by Commissioners

I was thinking - "the SEC says that its own commissioners’ views do not reflect the position of the agency", so why do they need to vote at all before an enforcement action can take place, and why have commissioners at all?

It seems the exact opposite if you ask me, commissioner's views dictate what enforcements will or will not proceed, especially on such a high level case.

Stupid Enforcement Cartel.

I am beside myself about why the SEC hasn't withdrawn their complaints against BG and CL ...

I mean, they can continue to litigate against Ripple for a while if they wish, but the the SEC is clearly just wasting tax payers' dollars on the BG and CL cases at this point.

My guess is that they have two teams.  One set of lawyers are attacking Ripple and putting pressure on them to make them fearful, the other are coaxing them to reach a setlement deal.  The more Ripple fear SEC the better for the negotiators on SEC's side of the table. 

I doubt Ripple are very fearful of SEC taking this to Court, but the sooner Ripple get clarity the better for Ripple.

Basic !! Did you get a chance to dabble in LoGo too ? 6 of us used to share a computer with 32 MB RAM at undergrad  and that was one of the new ones 😂 Guess I’m old too.

6inch floppy disk anyone? I was young then, my dad worked for a PC company so I remember the first PC's. Tron yes, but do you remember the labyrinth with billy idol. Also, we may be hopelessly biased since I would assume most people on this forum have xrp, but if I scrub as much of the confirmation biases away I still look at this case and say, "SEC I think you know, you overstepped a little."

Oh, since everyone is old if you like go here. You can buy fun dip!!!!

I may have dabbled in LoGo, but my coding days are long behind me, it was Cobol, C++ and now it's a case of why work so hard when you have this much processing power and memory available etc, just use Python for most things, so many libraries and scripts etc....

MB's and floppy disks, back in those days we used to dream of megabytes and floppy disks, we had good old tape decks and wobbly ram packs, but you try telling that to the kids of today, and they won't believe you. :)

LOL - in early High School we got to save our code to punch tape.
Later, in collage, I had to wait in line to punch out one line of code to a card, then get back at the end of line.
Finally, got to work on state of the art Techtronix equipment, sporting a three by four foot device that supported dual ( !! ) 8-inch "hard sector" floppy drives. Sweet Zeus those things were SLOW... 

Kids these days !

Punch cards, you were lucky, when I said tape, I meant Babbage analytical engine, we had to crank the thing by hand LOL.
