Yep. I stand corrected, thanks, although on second thought, both versions might work if you're receiving a government cheque by post, versus some email that declares some funds have been sent to a bitcoin address.

I think the centralization of fiat is the real problem when you have the dregs of society attracted to it in order to manage or control it.
