    The "popular" hidden site "Silk Road", where illegal substances and other material were sold was recently shut down by the FBI today, with the owner Ross William Ulbricht, (also known as Dread Pirate Roberts) being charged with narcotics trafficking, computer hacking, and money laundering.

    Ive heard of it. It was a quiet and underground website my friends would buy some serious substances from. Also, i think something called "designer" drugs or something like that. K2 and "spaceman". It was called spaceman because it could get you high really really fast... I dont know lol

    I knew that would come up lol.

    I know theres no way to prove this over the internet, but I've never done anything. Its probably pretty possible ive gotten contact highs from just hanging out with them sometimes, but never actually ingested or injected for that matter lol

    I love those guys, but its awful to watch them throw their lives away :C

    Should've called himself "Satin" instead.

    You pass up a punny nickname like that and you deserve whatever the police do to you.
     
  12. I've heard about it somewhere, can't remember exactly where though.

    Interesting, I shall be interested to find out how they managed their investigation.

    For the unaware Silk road I suppose was a website hidden in TOR services (you could get there but you would never know where it is) that used bitcoins (makes it harder to follow the money trail) and facilitated the purchase and sale of various drugs all over the world.

    Yeah im surprised on both counts, how long it lasted, and that it got caught. I mean it was really well hidden but word got around.

    I logged in just to like this comment.

    I too wonder how they pulled this one off, but at the same time, I'm kinda surprised that it took them this long.
