Bitcoin.org blocks access to Bitcoin software download in the UK

Bitcoin.org has blocked U.K. visitors from downloading Bitcoin Core software, as well as the whitepaper authored by Satoshi Nakamoto. 

It comes days after a British court ruled in favor of self-proclaimed Bitcoin creator Craig Wright.

He had accused Bitcoin.org and its current operator Cøbra of copyright infringement for hosting the BTC whitepaper in the U.K.

Cøbra elected not to mount a defense in order to protect their anonymity — and was also ordered to pay interim legal costs of £35,000 (about $48,600.)

The judgment is the latest salvo in Wright’s assault on people who dispute his claim of being Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto.

      I think time to time we need to remember this.
      Satoshi didn't try to convince people how awesome Bitcoin is or would be. We don't neither. BTC will prevail no matter what. This is what makes it great.

      Hal Finney was the first person, besides Satoshi Nakamoto, to run Bitcoin and support the network.

      “I advise you to buy from me gold (Bitcoin) refined by fire (Energy) that you may become rich.” (Revelation 3:18a)

      A recent article called "Bitcoin is Time" made the case that Bitcoin is essentially a clock. (Father Time aka GOD)
      Buying bitcoin from god refined by fire to become rich. Spiritually rich. Not with yellow rocks but “rich toward God.” (Luke 12:21)

      Here is an illustration Jesus once offered to the people of Israel:
      How to be "rich toward God"?
      Saint Paul explained what that gold is when he told Timothy to give orders to wealthy Christians “to work at good, to be rich in fine works, to be liberal, ready to share, safely treasuring up for themselves a fine foundation for the future.” Only by expending themselves in this way could they “get a firm hold on the real life.” (1 Timothy 6:17-19)
      This is the purpose of Bitcoin and now your purpose should you listen to Jesus.

      The man's name actually is Satoshi Nakamoto. He's not THE Satoshi Nakamoto, he just has the same name. It's just a meme.

      I thought from some previous readings that Craig Wright from Australia was the creator of bitcoin. 
      Others point toward people who used to be a part of bitgold.
      Who do you think Satoshi Nakamoto really was/is?
