I went to deposit funds into btc-e.com, my international transfer was refused because it was deemed 'too risky'. Despite explaining to them I've dealt with btc-e.com many times, for larger amounts, they won't budge.
When did my cash cease to be my own, when did we all need to ask permission to transfer money?
fc3f81c625720063c5cab2145bcb5ef20b13ff0aa73b0b2435ffdb645acfcb8b has the warning “Transaction rejected by our node. Reason: The transaction is not final.” on Blockchain.info.

Noticed they have Etherium now, so I figured I’d buy my max of 1 of that, then another 1 BTC The charge my bank, then an hour later, I get an email that they are closing my account. It’s been nearly a week. No response email, and no refund of the money they took. WTF? How is this not…

I’m wondering why the nonce is included in the block header, and thus in the
prevBlockHash of the subsequent block, etc. What would break if you didn’t do that?
It seems to me that you would still be (a) able to validate the block, and (b) unable to mess around with the transactions in the block, because that would modify the
hashMerkeRoot field, and thus render the block invalid.
