Title: update
Post by: Dread Pirate Roberts on November 12, 2012, 02:15 am
UPDATE (2351 UTC 11/16/2012): Registrations are open again.  Been monitoring the new set up and we are well within capacity, so we are going to open it up again (sorry to everyone left out in the cold the past few days).  Still working out a few bugs, but it looks like we are pretty much back on track folks.  I'll leave this thread pinned for now in case anything comes up in the next few days.  I hope to see all of you at movie night tonight :)  (http://dkn255hz262ypmii.onion/index.php?topic=69283.0)

UPDATE (0225 UTC 11/16/2012): Withdrawals are up to date, so if you sent a withdrawal and it is taking much longer than usual to show up, please contact support so we can investigate.  Still a few things to iron out with the site (people getting logged off, etc), but I think we are just about there.

UPDATE (2326 UTC 11/15/2012): Might not have to take the site down after all.  I'll let you know here if we do.  A side note about withdrawals:  There have been a ton of them (understandable), so we are getting through them as fast as possible.  Please be patient if we haven't gotten to yours yet.

UPDATE (2254 UTC 11/15/2012): The site went down again and there are people claiming to be responsible for it and making threats.  I don't want to take any chances, so the site is going to come down for a bit while we investigate what is going on.  Hopefully this is short lived... what drama!  Next update will come before 0600 UTC.

UPDATE (2355 UTC): Deposits are working.  All outstanding deposits have been processed, and future deposits will be processed as usual.  If you sent a deposit before or during the outage and your account has not been credited, message support so we can investigate your issue.  Some withdrawals have been processed, but there is still a queue we are working through.  I'll update when withdrawals are back to normal.

UPDATE (2052 UTC): Current members now have full access to Silk Road.  Registrations are still closed until we are certain we can handle the additional traffic.  We are still unable to process deposits and withdrawals, but are getting very close.  I will start a new thread with some commentary on this whole situation once we are running 100%.

UPDATE(0850 UTC): Silk Road is available once again, but on a limited basis.  New user registrations are closed for the time being.  Access is limited to vendors only.  New deposits and withdrawals (and any that were sent just before or during the outage) will not be processed until some time in the next 24 hours.  Assuming all goes well, access for all current members will be made available some time in the next 24 hours.

UPDATE (0012 UTC):  Sorry I'm late on this update, won't happen again.  We're pretty much polishing and going down the final check list at this point.  I'm confident we'll make our "matter of days" estimate and this won't be drawn out into week+ territory (assuming nothing goes wrong when we reopen).  When we reopen, access will be limited to vendors only for a few hours so they can mark packages shipped that were sent but not marked before we went down.  Also, auto-finalize and auto-vacation haven't been running since Sunday, and we won't fire those back up for a couple of days after we reopen so everyone can get square first.  Can't wait till this is behind us :)  Next update before 1500 UTC Wednesday.

UPDATE (1113 UTC): I and the team need sleep.  Getting really close now, home stretch (hopefully).  Next update will come before 2300 UTC, Tuesday.

UPDATE (0924 UTC): I know you won't like hearing this, but we aren't quite there yet.  We are working hard and getting closer though.  Next update will come before 1600 UTC.

Hello everyone,

I'm alive, I'm safe.  Luck would have it that the first time I'm away for more than 24 hours, the site goes down and I'm the only one that can bring it back up.  As soon as we are sure there haven't been any security breaches and taken all of the necessary precautions, we will get back up and running.  If anyone's orders get messed up because of this (auto-finalizing, etc), we will take full responsibility and make things right, just contact support once we're back up.  I'm terribly sorry for this and all of the recent problems.  I promise it is my top priority to get things running smoothly again.

Not hatting here but when a street dealer says they'll be around "shortly" and days later no action, shit means it ain't going down. Now i have read shortly more times in the last few days then i have in my entire lifetime. So now i'm sick of checking this forum to read the only word that gets banded around. Can someone, anyone,please put a time frame on when things will be operational? If this is not possible because nobody really knows then RIP SR. If it's because less info is to much info coz of the p i g 's then fuck me i'll have to be a reloading motherfucker time wasting  ass hole until nerdburgers get their shit on and get off that warcraft crap.

No Nigger boy, however I will say this regarding your clear obsession with the Negro race...

Nothing optional—from homosexuality to adultery—is ever made punishable unless those who do the prohibiting (and exact the fierce punishments) have a repressed desire to participate. As Shakespeare put it in King Lear, the policeman who lashes the whore has a hot need to use her for the very offense for which he plies the lash.

Take from that what you will...

THANK YOU DPR and associates for:
- making this site
- keeping it going
- fixing what's broken
- saving me from the mean streets where getting raped or robbed or worse is a real possibility on each and every buy
- not kicking me out just because i'm a newbie and haven't made any purchases yet because it's taking me time to learn pgp and btc, but i'm getting there

If there is a heaven, you're all going
:)
I dont wanna go to heaven unless theres something better than MDMA in there.
This is what I want in Heaven

1) A constant feeling like I'm on MDMA for my first time
2) Beautiful women
3) The ability to get it up

Thanks God, see you next eternity!

DPR- Hopefully you get many days off, or at least as many as you can manage.  I know when I owned a small business it was close to impossible to get any days off, not because I couldn't have taken them, but I wouldn't.  That needed to change, so I hope you can find your balance here.  Thanks for EVERYTHING!

Thanks DPR!
Newer to this site but it is absolutely the best thing that has ever happened to me, or anyone here for that matter. I greatly appreciate everything that is done to keep SR working the way it does. I can't believe how many ignorant assholes take this site and what you do for granted, without you there would be no SR, not just for a couple days but at all! Keep up the good work and take all the time needed to make sure SR comes back as safe and secure as it was, there is no need to rush a delicate process because some people on here have no patience whatsoever, I cannot believe some of the outrageous posts people have been putting up lately.
 Love what you do, ignore the haters!

Just read a post from Pine (yes wanking was involved) and she recons this could take days/weeks or even months. Now i understand shit happens. i watch movies so i understand.  But pirate or dpr, whatever you prefer, dude if this shit is gonna last weeks or months you gotta pirate up and let us sailors know so we can navigate what ship to sail. There are other options, sure no way as good as yours but a junkie's gotta do what a junkie's gotta do. Am i asking too much? Is having money tied up with no response as to when i can access my money cool in the eyes of every SR user here degrading those of us that dare question wtf this will be fixed if ever?

Don't sweat it, man. I work in Development as a programmer, and I know how valuable a dedicated IT person is, even though I'm not in that department. Servers are always shitting themselves, things like that. I'd recommend getting someone to cover for you while you're gone, but considering the industry you're in I can't say it's the smartest idea; three men can keep a secret if two of them are dead.

i just quoted that post so it was clear who i was talking to.  It's several of his other posts i find purely ignorant and ungrateful.  He doesn't have to be here.  If he has a problem with SR he can go back to the street if he like and leave all the great products on SR for the rest of us who do understand what a godsend this place can be for instance to those like myself who have cancer but don't live in a state where they can easily safely access their meds.  SR saved my life.  i mean seriously god forbid DPR step away from his computer for a few days seriously think about that.......what an ignorant, selfish, unrealistic demand to make.  That's the point i'm trying to make

Its times like this that make me think SR needs a sister site. When one site goes down, for whatever reason, the second site is still accessible. Vendors can advertise on both sites for the one join fee and buyers will always have access to their wares.

I think you lost control of the site!!!!

sounds a bit hard to believe i reckon............. this is a multimillion dollar site and it all relies on 1 person...................

Like people have said, you assume he can just hire new employees and use standard infrastructure as one would on the world wide web but Darknet's completely different. If he was going to disappear with your cash he would have, and finally you do owe him because like I said before, how much money have you made because he was thoughtful enough to give you a place to flog your wares to the whole world and not just your local hood. Think about it, Sony goes down from time to time, Banks close their sites for maintenance that hold your money but do you abuse the shit out of the bank manager or shareholders because of it. YouTube, as well as every site has to do things from time to time, and they aren't being attacked by every LE office in the world. You have to remember who his adversaries are, NSA, MI5&6, Interpol and many others are all attempting to penetrate the system to shut it down.

Also piss off, haters and complainers. Stop fucking whining about SR being down. Be thankful you even got SR. If you're so eager to log back in that you feel the need to say something rude on the forums, you should be the one trying to implement an underground market of items banned by most societies without getting caught. Think you lost money? Well that comes with the price of being involved with it. You signed up and you should of well known that there isn't no goin downtown to the store to get a refund. I lost five hundo $. Life rolls on. Live with it.
This aint yo fucking amazon. Give people/DPR a break.

I believe you're referring to the post I made saying perhaps he's not Libertarian and in fact a Nazi who's gone AWOL but then that was after I had just wired 150 BTC not knowing what was going on and there were people saying it was all over. I had been on for about five minutes when I wrote that and had no time to read all the posts made by others of significance. My main concern was the lack of authority on the issue saying something and the mods saying the same thing that they knew nothing either. When I woke up that morning I hadn't planned on losing $1600 of my good friends $ before I had a shower, know what I mean? I also must add that I said it was HIGHLY UNLIKELY he would do that to us but leaving us in the dark wasn't very considerate either, particularly for vendors, and the Admins NOT DPR should have let us all know they'd fucked up since it was also on their watch and DPR had no fucking idea what was up! Seriously cunt, WTF is your problem? Were you born a woman who's on her rags every day? You are one of these people who thinks the world owes them something but DPR owes you shit, except an eviction notice IMO! Just like the terrorists have really won by making the world a scared place to live and given LEO more power over peoples lives, so to does acting the way you do on here make people not confident in our ships captain, who deserves our appreciation and respect for bringing us all together knowing full well he's putting his fucking LIFE on the line for us to have a free market so that we can have a pot of gold to draw from. Like I said before, he's led us all to Paradise Island full of treasure and that deserves appreciation in and of itself, not to mention he's constantly making things more secure for us all. Personally, I'd follow him to the ends of the Earth and go to war for him or any other Libertarian against The System, except you since traitors deserve only one thing in times of war, and this is a motherfucking war! If you're such a big shot then why do you "need" SR at all? Oh that's right, you're a fucking smurf, now crawl back inside your mushroom house little man and keep quiet!


I think Niggerz is either someone from the BMR or some other such SR wannabe site, or just completely deranged and unappreciative of what DPR and the TEAM has done to enhance all our lives. If DPR knows who he is, please mate, freeze his account and keep his fucking money, you deserve it!
the rest of you are afraid to speak up because you're worried about losing yours aswell. instead you tongue dp rob's asshole in hopes that he spares you.

actually most of us read the forums and where it says you shouldn't have more btc in your SR account than you plan to spend immediately just in case something like this happens.   So no once again your ignorance is showing

I suppose it is my fault for being asleep while escrow was released and waking up to a 404. First thing I do every time I login is withraw all funds in my account thank you very much

at least you still have time, nearly end of monday my way so i definitely won't be getting any relief tomorrow - all because the vendors believed it will be up by now. the explanation doesn't make sense, site is not up and the maintenance page is still a static. if the site isn't even capable of displaying its own maintenance page then i would think there's still a lot messed up. i just wish the vendors would stop taking these bits of information as the gospel and start private sales till SR is actually working.

Hey everyone,

Again, really sorry for all the headache and heartache this is causing.  Just want to reiterate that everything is fine.  I apologize that I haven't given a specific time-frame, but I really want to make sure that when we reopen we aren't going to run into the same problems we were having.

My best estimate tells me we are looking at a matter of days or maybe a day before reopening, not a matter of weeks, but not a matter of hours either.  I hope that helps some of you plan.

I will keep you updated as I am able.

DPR, thanks for update, all I can say is that I understand: if this is one-man operation (and it seems it is), scalability problems demand very good expertise in the field. I know because I run one fairly large site where I had similar problems, still I guess it's much much smaller than SR.

great to heard word back from DPR. get well enough faith that SR will be back up and going soon enough. a lot of people need to chill out a bit.

it is definately harder for vendors who have got quite a bit of money tied up in SR, but for buyers you should know not to have any more BC's than necessary.

Hello everyone,

I'm alive, I'm safe.  Luck would have it that the first time I'm away for more than 24 hours, the site goes down and I'm the only one that can bring it back up.  As soon as we are sure there haven't been any security breaches and taken all of the necessary precautions, we will get back up and running.  If anyone's orders get messed up because of this (auto-finalizing, etc), we will take full responsibility and make things right, just contact support once we're back up.  I'm terribly sorry for this and all of the recent problems.  I promise it is my top priority to get things running smoothly again.

Post by: JezuzWazaMushroom on November 12, 2012, 09:32 am
It's no that I can't actually afford to pay back a dirty rotten $1500 dollars, it's that it's the last thing I want to have to do with $1500. $1500 is $1500 and why would I want it going somewhere it shouldn't when it could feed a starving child or something? I actually have $2K in there TBH, and let me tell you a secret why millionaire's stay millionaire's, because they're not frivolous with it and they spend other peoples money not their own and the good ones put it all into tax deductible charities like myself.

One year Kerry Packer (Australia's deceased former wealthiest person) paid $84 in tax. One of Australia's most well known gangster cum celebrity types Mick Gatto, operates a "industrial dispute resolution" business that although he drives an E63 AMG (I myself drive an S-Class but a Kompressor 3.5L with the 7sp G-Tronic box because it's not for racing it's a family car) and has holiday houses all over the place, posted an overall loss for the year of something like 27K a couple of years back to not pay tax. Look at Warren Buffet who still lives in the same house he bought a million years ago and yet still wouldn't give his kids anything more than an education of the highest standard. Buffets really nice grand daughter whom he's disowned for her part in a documentary shows how twisted some get by money and what they do with it. My point is this, smart people with money never actually spend money because after a certain point your milking your investments and putting it down to tax. Oh you're having a party, no you're not you're having a "company dinner which just happens to require magicians and "exotic dancers" to win over a prospective investment partner" but nobody there invested after seeing it wasn't viable for their portfolio due to unseen circumstances" lol.

One day I was talking with this drug dealer idiot with bling all over him and was even getting fucking gems in his tooth FFS, (retard rich kid) who was going on about how rich he was and that he never leaves the house without ten grand on his person for "just in case" and I said I'll bet you what you have on you right now that I'm worth more than you and I only have $150 in my wallet "just in case" we'll do this by comparing who has the largest bank account. He said "I have lots of bank accounts" so I said alright how about who has the access to the most cash or credit at a casino right now accessible to us with with what cards we had on us (it felt like playing Pokemon or whatever that Manga card game cartoon is kids watch with him) so off to Crown Jupiters we went since he didn't believe me and I wouldn't show him mine till we got there. He converted his cash to chips and I went and organised the same in value to pretend like I didn't know something he didn't, and went back over to where our friends were hanging out chatting about it as they had all become very interested in our wager, I guess it was one of those who had the biggest cocks in the room type things, then publicly with everyone we went to the floor manager and pulled out our cocks and he had an AMEX Platinum which he thought was the bomb, until I pulled out something very few people have, like a big cock, my AMEX Centurion Card. The Centurion Card is something you have to be invited to get by meeting certain wealth and spending criteria and just to have it costs me money every year for the security of being anywhere in the world and being able to buy a house if I want let alone just get a shit load of gold if the world looks like it's going to get fucked and go into hiding. Needless to say he was fucking ropable about it and I took his chips anyway and sent the money to an organisation I know he hates in his name too and showed him the receipt scan through Facebook, an organisation that supports the Palestinian people (because he's a Jew boy) but Fatah not HAMAS.

So I think you can deduce for yourself it was a figure of speech dude. I'd sooner rather give it to a kid with cancer's family who are eating baked beans every night for dinner to pay for his care than a millionaire criminal who stole it for no reason, which isn't too far from the truth so make of that what you will, the cancer bit I mean. My mate's bills are so bad that he's ordering MDMA to flog off to pay for it. I've offered to give him money but the cunt is too proud to accept charity, it's hard to watch. Mind you their not eating baked beans every night, but they haven't been able to go out to dinner in over a year (except my restaurant when I made them saying it was an invitation with other people to socialize, again because of his pride he says it's not my place to feed) from expenses and with his tax return he hopes to turn it into something decent because of the over inflated price of chems here. I'm not going to act like I earned my wealth, it's generational but I can't help what I was born into, but unlike much of the %1 my heart lies with the Ron Paul rEVOLution, everyone and everything, and I have traveled a lot so therefore have a social conscience plus using psychedelics and going to Burning Man forces me to feel sick when I know the way "they" operate everything.

However unlike in America, in Australia there's a balance of power between us and the Jews, we won't let them control our Fed etc thanks to people who go to schools similar to where I attended (St. Josephs) but I've never seen any of David Icke's lizard people, and if I you knew some of the owners of business and politicians I know you would be surprised that they aren't in fact some form of reptilian creatures because they're cold blooded no doubt. The problem with our system though, is the Jews control our media and therefore keep the people locked in this mentality of a Left/Right paradigm mentality of thinking.

I can tell you %100 from organisations the oldies were and still are members of and therefore dragged me into having involvement with at functions etc that I hate, that the mega rich are all in bed with each other and are about global control for themselves and their, the great grandfather started a mining company and we employ thousands of people now and made the bulk of our money from the smart old cunts prospecting skills and organising capacity to get the shit out of the ground and off to the rest of the world, and instead of paying transport companies to ship it went and started them too and shit just grew and grew. So that's why I said I'm a fair but wealthier than even DPR I'd say but no where near as intelligent or plain brilliant. I have nothing to do with any of "them" and I would do anything I can to establish Libertarianism world wide.

So you don't think we're bankers or something our family built it's wealth out of hard work and caring for employees above all and I stretch that further to say that I will be doing everything I can to support people like the Libertarians world wide and those less fortunate.

Here's two reasons exactly why the War On Drugs is bullshit, three actually, my mate is struggling for medical care because there's not enough state money that could easily pay for these things with war on drug expense/taxes, he's risking his life to save the life of his child and possibly his relationship, and if it's intercepted he won't be there to possibly see his child's small amount of time left. And if that were to occur the cops would paste in on their Facebook page and the Newspaper as a victory while at the same time demonizing an innocent man trying to help his family. Then we have to put up with queer cunts like that iHateNiggers CUNT who goes on about how hard it is for him because he's been locked out from Silk Road as if it's his right to use it at all when it was a gift to the world from DPR. FUCK I need to go and have a cone, but I hope this clarifies my position.

Peace

Seriously cunt, WTF is your problem? Were you born a woman who's on her rags every day? You are one of these people who thinks the world owes them something but DPR owes you shit, except an eviction notice IMO! Just like the terrorists have really won by making the world a scared place to live and given LEO more power over peoples lives, so to does acting the way you do on here make people not confident in our ships captain, who deserves our appreciation and respect for bringing us all together knowing full well he's putting his fucking LIFE on the line for us to have a free market so that we can have a pot of gold to draw from. Like I said before, he's led us all to Paradise Island full of treasure and that deserves appreciation in and of itself, not to mention he's constantly making things more secure for us all. Personally, I'd follow him to the ends of the Earth and go to war for him or any other Libertarian against The System, except you since traitors deserve only one thing in times of war, and this is a motherfucking war! If you're such a big shot then why do you "need" SR at all? Oh that's right, you're a fucking smurf, now crawl back inside your mushroom house little man and keep quiet!


I think Niggerz is either someone from the BMR or some other such SR wannabe site, or just completely deranged and unappreciative of what DPR and the TEAM has done to enhance all our lives. If DPR knows who he is, please mate, freeze his account and keep his fucking money, you deserve it!
the rest of you are afraid to speak up because you're worried about losing yours aswell. instead you tongue dp rob's asshole in hopes that he spares you.

actually most of us read the forums and where it says you shouldn't have more btc in your SR account than you plan to spend immediately just in case something like this happens.   So no once again your ignorance is showing

Gave up reading this rant half way through. but what surprised me if there is any shred of truth to it which I'm skeptical about. why would you put u[ so much personal info. a car that you own that is not very common and some kind of credit card that noone has. you would just serve to extreemly narrow down who you could be if LE were to take any interest. I call BS

Oh you're having a party, no you're not you're having a "company dinner which just happens to require magicians and "exotic dancers" to win over a prospective investment partner" but nobody there invested after seeing it wasn't viable for their portfolio due to unseen circumstances" lol.

One day I was talking with this drug dealer idiot with bling all over him and was even getting fucking gems in his tooth FFS, (retard rich kid) who was going on about how rich he was and that he never leaves the house without ten grand on his person for "just in case" and I said I'll bet you what you have on you right now that I'm worth more than you and I only have $150 in my wallet "just in case" we'll do this by comparing who has the largest bank account. He said "I have lots of bank accounts" so I said alright how about who has the access to the most cash or credit at a casino right now accessible to us with with what cards we had on us (it felt like playing Pokemon or whatever that Manga card game cartoon is kids watch with him) so off to Crown Jupiters we went since he didn't believe me and I wouldn't show him mine till we got there. He converted his cash to chips and I went and organised the same in value to pretend like I didn't know something he didn't, and went back over to where our friends were hanging out chatting about it as they had all become very interested in our wager, I guess it was one of those who had the biggest cocks in the room type things, then publicly with everyone we went to the floor manager and pulled out our cocks and he had an AMEX Platinum which he thought was the bomb, until I pulled out something very few people have, like a big cock, my AMEX Centurion Card. The Centurion Card is something you have to be invited to get by meeting certain wealth and spending criteria and just to have it costs me money every year for the security of being anywhere in the world and being able to buy a house if I want let alone just get a shit load of gold if the world looks like it's going to get fucked and go into hiding. Needless to say he was fucking ropable about it and I took his chips anyway and sent the money to an organisation I know he hates in his name too and showed him the receipt scan through Facebook, an organisation that supports the Palestinian people (because he's a Jew boy) but Fatah not HAMAS.

So I think you can deduce for yourself it was a figure of speech dude. I'd sooner rather give it to a kid with cancer's family who are eating baked beans every night for dinner to pay for his care than a millionaire criminal who stole it for no reason, which isn't too far from the truth so make of that what you will, the cancer bit I mean. My mate's bills are so bad that he's ordering MDMA to flog off to pay for it. I've offered to give him money but the cunt is too proud to accept charity, it's hard to watch. Mind you their not eating baked beans every night, but they haven't been able to go out to dinner in over a year (except my restaurant when I made them saying it was an invitation with other people to socialize, again because of his pride he says it's not my place to feed) from expenses and with his tax return he hopes to turn it into something decent because of the over inflated price of chems here. I'm not going to act like I earned my wealth, it's generational but I can't help what I was born into, but unlike much of the %1 my heart lies with the Ron Paul rEVOLution, everyone and everything, and I have traveled a lot so therefore have a social conscience plus using psychedelics and going to Burning Man forces me to feel sick when I know the way "they" operate everything.

However unlike in America, in Australia there's a balance of power between us and the Jews, we won't let them control our Fed etc thanks to people who go to schools similar to where I attended (St. Josephs) but I've never seen any of David Icke's lizard people, and if I you knew some of the owners of business and politicians I know you would be surprised that they aren't in fact some form of reptilian creatures because they're cold blooded no doubt. The problem with our system though, is the Jews control our media and therefore keep the people locked in this mentality of a Left/Right paradigm mentality of thinking.

I can tell you %100 from organisations the oldies were and still are members of and therefore dragged me into having involvement with at functions etc that I hate, that the mega rich are all in bed with each other and are about global control for themselves and their, the great grandfather started a mining company and we employ thousands of people now and made the bulk of our money from the smart old cunts prospecting skills and organising capacity to get the shit out of the ground and off to the rest of the world, and instead of paying transport companies to ship it went and started them too and shit just grew and grew. So that's why I said I'm a fair but wealthier than even DPR I'd say but no where near as intelligent or plain brilliant. I have nothing to do with any of "them" and I would do anything I can to establish Libertarianism world wide.

So you don't think we're bankers or something our family built it's wealth out of hard work and caring for employees above all and I stretch that further to say that I will be doing everything I can to support people like the Libertarians world wide and those less fortunate.

Here's two reasons exactly why the War On Drugs is bullshit, three actually, my mate is struggling for medical care because there's not enough state money that could easily pay for these things with war on drug expense/taxes, he's risking his life to save the life of his child and possibly his relationship, and if it's intercepted he won't be there to possibly see his child's small amount of time left. And if that were to occur the cops would paste in on their Facebook page and the Newspaper as a victory while at the same time demonizing an innocent man trying to help his family. Then we have to put up with queer cunts like that iHateNiggers CUNT who goes on about how hard it is for him because he's been locked out from Silk Road as if it's his right to use it at all when it was a gift to the world from DPR. FUCK I need to go and have a cone, but I hope this clarifies my position.

Peace


I believe you're referring to the post I made saying perhaps he's not Libertarian and in fact a Nazi who's gone AWOL but then that was after I had just wired 150 BTC not knowing what was going on and there were people saying it was all over. I had been on for about five minutes when I wrote that and had no time to read all the posts made by others of significance. My main concern was the lack of authority on the issue saying something and the mods saying the same thing that they knew nothing either. When I woke up that morning I hadn't planned on losing $1600 of my good friends $ before I had a shower, know what I mean? I also must add that I said it was HIGHLY UNLIKELY he would do that to us but leaving us in the dark wasn't very considerate either, particularly for vendors, and the Admins NOT DPR should have let us all know they'd fucked up since it was also on their watch and DPR had no fucking idea what was up! Seriously cunt, WTF is your problem? Were you born a woman who's on her rags every day? You are one of these people who thinks the world owes them something but DPR owes you shit, except an eviction notice IMO! Just like the terrorists have really won by making the world a scared place to live and given LEO more power over peoples lives, so to does acting the way you do on here make people not confident in our ships captain, who deserves our appreciation and respect for bringing us all together knowing full well he's putting his fucking LIFE on the line for us to have a free market so that we can have a pot of gold to draw from. Like I said before, he's led us all to Paradise Island full of treasure and that deserves appreciation in and of itself, not to mention he's constantly making things more secure for us all. Personally, I'd follow him to the ends of the Earth and go to war for him or any other Libertarian against The System, except you since traitors deserve only one thing in times of war, and this is a motherfucking war! If you're such a big shot then why do you "need" SR at all? Oh that's right, you're a fucking smurf, now crawl back inside your mushroom house little man and keep quiet!


I think Niggerz is either someone from the BMR or some other such SR wannabe site, or just completely deranged and unappreciative of what DPR and the TEAM has done to enhance all our lives. If DPR knows who he is, please mate, freeze his account and keep his fucking money, you deserve it!
the rest of you are afraid to speak up because you're worried about losing yours aswell. instead you tongue dp rob's asshole in hopes that he spares you.

actually most of us read the forums and where it says you shouldn't have more btc in your SR account than you plan to spend immediately just in case something like this happens.   So no once again your ignorance is showing

I suppose it is my fault for being asleep while escrow was released and waking up to a 404. First thing I do every time I login is withraw all funds in my account thank you very much

You can't afford to lose 150BTC of a friends money, yet you're a millionare yourself? Mhmmmm.

It was failing on my end. I stand corrected though. It DOES check out.

One year Kerry Packer (Australia's deceased former wealthiest person) paid $84 in tax. One of Australia's most well known gangster cum celebrity types Mick Gatto, operates a "industrial dispute resolution" business that although he drives an E63 AMG (I myself drive an S-Class but a Kompressor 3.5L with the 7sp G-Tronic box because it's not for racing it's a family car)
[/quote]

You are a liar... there is no S-calss MB that is a family car with the 7 speed and a 3.5L\

there is the SLK 350 which has both but that is a 2 seat droptop

The only S class family cars with the 7 speed trany are  S450/ S550/ S63 / S65.... none of which come with a  tiny 3.5L.

so now that you have been busted care to disagree?

let's say you have a old school S 350, even that does not have the new 7 speed gearbox...

you are a liar... dont come on here and talk trash about mercedes benz....  >:(


EDIT: btw.. I drive an 2009 E63, but it has the 2007 E55 engine... more power and more mods!  I will eat any 63 and day of the week!

Do people really want the admin to stop working on fixing SR to come on here every hour for an update?

Be patient, this is not fucking walmart or amazon. You can't expect fast service and bending over for your every need because just in case you never noticed SR is an illegal site. So you have to expect things might go wrong, otherwise you are in the wrong place doing the wrong things.

So yeah, just chill the fuck out.

Hey everyone,

Again, really sorry for all the headache and heartache this is causing.  Just want to reiterate that everything is fine.  I apologize that I haven't given a specific time-frame, but I really want to make sure that when we reopen we aren't going to run into the same problems we were having.

My best estimate tells me we are looking at a matter of days or maybe a day before reopening, not a matter of weeks, but not a matter of hours either.  I hope that helps some of you plan.

I will keep you updated as I am able.

Thats all us impatient fuckwits needed. Thanks :)

Thanks DPR!
Newer to this site but it is absolutely the best thing that has ever happened to me, or anyone here for that matter. I greatly appreciate everything that is done to keep SR working the way it does. I can't believe how many ignorant assholes take this site and what you do for granted, without you there would be no SR, not just for a couple days but at all! Keep up the good work and take all the time needed to make sure SR comes back as safe and secure as it was, there is no need to rush a delicate process because some people on here have no patience whatsoever, I cannot believe some of the outrageous posts people have been putting up lately.
 Love what you do, ignore the haters!

I've had a team of 150 monkeys on benzedrine sat at typewriters for the past 7 hours, and not one has come up with a way of expressing my thoughts as eloquently as stoveit just did. Well said!!

It's no that I can't actually afford to pay back a dirty rotten $1500 dollars, it's that it's the last thing I want to have to do with $1500. $1500 is $1500 and why would I want it going somewhere it shouldn't when it could feed a starving child or something? I actually have $2K in there TBH, and let me tell you a secret why millionaire's stay millionaire's, because they're not frivolous with it and they spend other peoples money not their own and the good ones put it all into tax deductible charities like myself.

Look at Warren Buffet who still lives in the same house he bought a million years ago and yet still wouldn't give his kids anything more than an education of the highest standard. Buffets really nice grand daughter whom he's disowned for her part in a documentary shows how twisted some get by money and what they do with it.

Everything is explained here, you can even search on the right top op this page...
Seriously, learn to do some research before asking stupid stuff like that.
I know you might be aware that the site is down.
But learn to search and read, and if you don't find an answer then you may post stuff like this.

a "genius" who saw EXPLODING GROWTH and couldn't make the proper adjustments to keep the site operational, keeps us vendors in the dark and our funds in limbo and won't give any concrete answers. I owe him shit.
pop quiz, how do you modify your path environment variable in a POSIX system?

no clue. ask dp rob. he's the genius
trick question! it's different depending on which shell you're using. csh is the de facto UNIX shell but bash is most people's preference. PATH=$PATH:/usr/bin/zsh ; export PATH :)

basic UNIX stuff. it's impossible to use UNIX for anything without knowing what environment variables are and what they do. if you haven't the technical knowledge to know what kind of complex problems can arise from the complex architecture that a website that is constantly serving pages with embedded image data and is constantly tumbling coins and is constantly keeping track of a huge database of orders and is constantly being accessed through TOR which requires a lot of overhead to transmit a webpage, then you end up sounding pretty ignorant and petulant when you complain that a couple nerdy kids would have this place running within a few hours, and what-have-you for other complaints.

Ahh thank God. Its so reasuring to hear something like this. I totally take SR for granted now, its a way of life, Ive been shitting my self the last few days thinking Id lost it. I dont want to go to any of the other dodgy sites. This is the best. I probably needed a break but this has reminded me how important this site is not just to me.

Long live SR and DPR.

Hello everyone,

I'm alive, I'm safe.  Luck would have it that the first time I'm away for more than 24 hours, the site goes down and I'm the only one that can bring it back up.  As soon as we are sure there haven't been any security breaches and taken all of the necessary precautions, we will get back up and running.  If anyone's orders get messed up because of this (auto-finalizing, etc), we will take full responsibility and make things right, just contact support once we're back up.  I'm terribly sorry for this and all of the recent problems.  I promise it is my top priority to get things running smoothly again.

poolsclosed, i'd give you a +10 if i only had enough posts to give karma (and if the karma function allowed me to give a +10!). as a sysadmin myself, i'd add that the only answer one can give to 'how long will this take to fix' is 'usually about 5 mins after the problem has been identified'. if i only had 1c for every time i'd been asked how long a problem would take to fix i'd be richer than jeezuzwazamushroom by now. be patient folks, good security and an efficient and reliable infrastructure is central to protecting sr buyers, vendors, and all our lovely btc...

DPR's public key

it's a different one ....  :o
Title: Re: update
Post by: g7455mk2 on November 12, 2012, 05:30 pm
So to summarize:

A. DPR Posts "GPG Signed" Message on DPR account updating us on when the road will be back.
B. GPG Signature does not match DPR public key that seems to be floating around on the forums.

...and as a result....

C. Vendors and users are largely back to where they were on Friday, suspicions are certainly warranted.

Seem about right?

Just another thank you for the patience and faith to everyone.  We're still working on getting everything set up.  Again, I'd rather take the time to be extra cautious.  I don't want a repeat of last week.  I'll check back in whether there is news or not by midnight EST.

take so much time as you need my friend, your real crew will always be on your side  ;D

I can't believe some people are still throwing a shit fit. Well actually I guess I can. You will get your fix soon my brothers, hang in there.

While I'm not kicking up a storm, I'm literally anxiously awaiting SR to return.
I'm almost out of benzos, I have a high tolerance. If the site isn't up soon I won't get my order in time and I could very well suffer severe symptoms.
Sure, I got my tolerance to where it is but I need the benzos to even get out of bed, I have legitimate reasons for its use and the doctors just don't take you seriously here.
Still, I'm going to have to try the doctor, I hope they can show some compassion and (as they should) understand the severity of acute benzo withdrawal.

Nah, but based on informed conjecture, I think the distribution centers are still operating to some degree, so it's like a half-day for your package's journey being completed, so you might get it tomorrow if it was supposed to come today.

no one was left in the dark..
as DPR said: "Figures when I leave for 24 hours."
do you really expect him to sit here with his/her thumbs in their ass all day/night? NO.
people have lives to live.. away from the Road, do not forget that, ever.
the mods posted, INIGO, saying he would be "shocked" if the site was not back up "by Monday".
which we have until midnight tonight.. and everyone has "money" tied up... so chill.
people cannot just go raging because obviously none of us were capable of making this site..
hell.. half of you are not capable of USING this site.. more less running it.


sooo.. everyone sit back, relax, and wait. it will be up soon.
we have an amazing team and an awesome el' Capitan.. they will take care of us.
they wouldn't be able to function without us.. so relax. we're all in the same boat awaiting our Captain's orders.

Maybe even le is busy with it for the time being.
Fact SR has been down for 120 hours
DPR claimant to have been gone for 24 before updating, that means the site was down for over 24 hours before he left. DPR Sig can not be confirmed.

Hi, gazwel, would you mind telling me the method by which a person can see their coins in their SR wallets, without logging in to SR which can't be done now? I didn't know there was a way to do this, but please enlighten me, as I am no expert.

Type your SR wallet address into google, The top hit should be from blockchain.info and it will show you how much is in your wallet.

If you don't know your SR wallet address, then go to your usual wallet and look for the address you sent the amount to in your transactions.

DPR puts his personal freedom on the line for this place, hes got to be one of the top wanted men in many three letter organisations.

He cant just pop it back on line like a clearnet site, he needs to make sure its 100% secure not to leave any expolits or trace to himself or any of us.

Would you rather he gets locked up and the site gets compromised?

Id rather wait to make sure everybody is safe.

Yeah, I thought that was the way and I had already done that, and it shows a balance of zero:
No. Transactions    6    
Unspent Inputs    0
Total Received    17.4577 BTC    
Final Balance    0 BTC

Why would it say zero if I know that before going down I had a tad less than 15 coins in there? I don't mind revealing this as it's not true anyway, I changed the amounts from what the blockchain said.

Still, why does it say zero? I sure hope I don't sound stupid, but there doesn't seem to be an explanation I can come up with.

kitkat82, just to say, it's nothing personal, but stop saying things that hardly can be done on SR:
1. If you stick to encrypting your adres and other sensitive data with PGP, FBI or any other DEA etc. would see trying to decrypt users data meaningless, and if they would be dumb enough to start doing it, probably they would try first with big buyers/vendors, and the start point would be vendors.
2. Other option, as you mentioned on other thread, if they would make arrest with highly rated vendors, they would have to change they PGP keys, and in minutes vendor would write on forum that his account is compromised.

So yes, we can assume that there is some risk, but this risk was there even before maintenance.

What do you mean?  I swear I saw a pic of DPR right underneath Anwar Al Awlaki before he was killed by a drone strike!

Seriously I'm sure if more LE knew about SR then DPR would be more of a wanted person but at this point I don't think there are even enough LE people who would know how to access (let alone use) this site for half of these conspiracy theories to even be conceivable.

I'm all for being skeptical but the paranoid people on here need to take a chill pill.  They're just making themselves look like amateurs.  If the technical problems are due to increased usage / traffic it would make sense that now, of all times, DPR would want to keep things running smoothly so (s)he can rake in even more cash than before.

Will the site be up today?  I have my doubts but at least someone's working on it.

I think that's fairly blinkered too. You talk about LE like they are just a heard of lobotomized cattle and that we are somehow the super-race. I have to say I find it quite hard to swallow that people make these silly presumptions in a serious way. It takes less than 5 minutes from seeing a news report on SR to install Tor and access the site. I mean Christ you can just look up SR on wikipedia and the URL is there for all to see  please don't make silly statements like the above because it's just makes you look po-faced and fairly ignorant of reality.

Like Wilson saying that DPR is gunna on the top most wanted list, erm get real much? After Al Quieda, the Taliban, the Cocaine and Heroin cartels in South America, Mexico and Afghanistan respectively, the various international Mafia organizations that kill 1000s and make Billions I don't think a site that does $20-30Mil a year is gunna be as high on the list as them.

If they caught hundreds of buyers then they would be able to brag about how great they are even more. The addresses aren't logged, but DEA may be editing the source to log it.

I'm guessing this is not the case, but if any LEO did take SR, they would probably do more than shut it down.

Yea I would think this site is experiencing a massive increase in traffic but I would not know if that is the reason for maintenance. I wouldn't know if DPR is a wanted man. Is he doing anything illegal?  I believe he has a disclaimor up saying he is not responsible for the actions taken by members of this site nor is he responsible for anybody that gets busted doing illegal activities.

Erm... I'm puzzled.  So when the site began -- or at the very least when it got to more than a handful of users -- in early 2011, DPR's public key listed staff@silkroadmarket.org for his email.  But it wasn't until May 2012 that anybody thought it would be a good thing to actually reserve that domain?  Or was that when somebody who thought it would be a useful malicious thing reserved that domain?

... what am I missing here?  If that is a legit email address, then where's my major malfunction?  If it isn't, then wouldn't it be good to make it a very well reinforced habit to remind people "this email is not real," anytime you mention the key?

Try doing a whois query for silkroadmarket.org and dispel my ignorance, por favor?

That's not so unusual.  SR has some kind of mixing service, remember.  When that address gets the coins, they actually are owned by whoever has the private key for that public bitcoin address.  Presumably DPR or his team, which must then automate a mixing process by passing the coins on somewhere else.

The coins don't have to be at that address for your account to spend them.  At least I don't see how that would be the case, though I've never seen anyone actually come out and say as much.

Bump.  Seriously, this makes me very nervous; if somebody could at least give me a theory here I'd appreciate it.  I can't figure it out.  I'm concerned that either something is amiss, or that my knowledge of how domains get registered and email gets routed and all that is just plain broken.  Either is very bad, since knowledge is power and power can be safety.  What's up?

All of you complaining can go fuck yourselves

DPR puts his personal freedom on the line for this place, hes got to be one of the top wanted men in many three letter organisations.

He cant just pop it back on line like a clearnet site, he needs to make sure its 100% secure not to leave any expolits or trace to himself or any of us.

Would you rather he gets locked up and the site gets compromised?

Id rather wait to make sure everybody is safe.

Half of you dont have a clue about this scene seriously..



the tree letter word organizations quote couldnt have been better said mate, i think people forget that this is not a USA based ONLY (F.BI., D.E.A) market, its world wide! every single drug or law enforcement agency in the globe is pry aware of DPR or the road at this point, but that doesn't mean he or the site has been comprised, especially in only the short amount time the road has been up or the short time that law enforcemnt even were introduced to this road. Id take a decent  time for them to find DPR (if he is really as smart as we all hope and think he is) not to mention this very generously kind sir that makes all this possible would be a FOOL if he is located in the states. the fact of the matter at hand is that theres no way this site could be shut down from only the DEA the FBI etc... this is a WORLDWIDE market with WORLDWIDE buyers and vendors. id take some crazy all leaders from around the world to sit down at the big round table to discuss how they would have to work TOGETHER as one to bring it down shit.  And Im not even going to get into the farmers market example as we all know that site was a joke, but hey, could it have been what lead to the silk road? the world may never know:) lets all also not forget though that on sat a moderator from the road posted an update about the site, and i remember him saying "we would be amazed if we didnt have it back up and running by Monday (its now Monday night and still not up) but then the post fro DPR from yesterday doesn't address any of the latest previous update from the moderator, any specifics and the stories on each post seemed to vary. I don't know what to believe anymore so i welcome anyone to make some of this more clear. Maybe DPR made his millions then cashed out not to become another fatality sitting in a penitentiary only to tell his or hers stories. he actually made his $, got out Scott free, kept his freedom, kept his stories to tell, and of course kept his fortune. <------ thats an option not always thought of ;)

Hey everyone,

Again, really sorry for all the headache and heartache this is causing.  Just want to reiterate that everything is fine.  I apologize that I haven't given a specific time-frame, but I really want to make sure that when we reopen we aren't going to run into the same problems we were having.

My best estimate tells me we are looking at a matter of days or maybe a day before reopening, not a matter of weeks, but not a matter of hours either.  I hope that helps some of you plan.

I will keep you updated as I am able.

Just another thank you for the patience and faith to everyone.  We're still working on getting everything set up.  Again, I'd rather take the time to be extra cautious.  I don't want a repeat of last week.  I'll check back in whether there is news or not by midnight EST.

Anyway, I have another one of these offline that was generated when silkroad changed to the new URL if anyone wants yet another way to validate his newest messages are not fraudulent.

Don't justify yourself to a bunch of unappreciative miscreants boss, we await the overhaul of the ship you so graciously let us work on and we've all seen enough episodes (well at least I have anyway) of Deadliest Catch to know you don't go out in the Bearing Sea without a sound boat and crew.

Like I've been telling people, STFU and scrub the decks and let our Captain plot our course. You've led us to buried treasure before, and every pirate ship has down time when it needs to pull into Port for maintenance etc. I don't know why they're all not in the local taverns of Port Royal spending their ill gotten loot with Guybrush Threepwood and some hookers, instead they're sitting around cooking up conspiracies acting like school girls.

One would have thought by now your word is good enough for us, and if you were compromised by LEO you would tell them to GTFO and wouldn't be accessing your shit anyway so fuck them!

It's an honour to be part of the crew, even if I'm just a shitty old deck hand lol with a peg leg and we'll be back on the high seas looking for merchant ships to raid in no time!

Is he doing anything illegal?  I believe he has a disclaimor up saying he is not responsible for the actions taken by members of this site nor is he responsible for anybody that gets busted doing illegal activities.

Lol Ralph my old fruit that disclaimer has about as much legal weight as employing a can of coke to be your litigation team. :P

Well but is hosting and maintaining a website on the onion relay network illegal? Or maybe it's illegal to be making a commision from drug sales. At any rate I guess DPR is as guilty as the rest of us who buy and sell drugs illegally. I have never seen his vendor account or have known of him to sell any type of goods or services here. That don't mean that he doesn't tho.

I just don't understand why he'd use an email address at a domain that wasn't registered until a year and a half after SR was started?  Why not just leave it blank if you didn't intend on putting a usable one in, instead of using one that appears legitimate enough to get some people emailing it?  Is the whois database info not entirely accurate?  Would it show as newly created if somebody accidentally let it lapse and then re-registered it fresh, maybe?

Get locked up?... If he is caught getting "locked up" would be a blessing, just the charge for being a "Drug Kingpin" is death. This guy is a Drug Overlord Darth Maul times 10. By law he can be charged (himself) for every single transaction that has happened since this site was created.

Some "Down Time" should be more than expected if not WELCOMED so atleast we know this guy is on top of his shit 10 fold.

DPR is a revolutionary just because the site has gone down for a bit doesn't mean shit, If i was him id bring the site down every day at some time just to triple check everything is working as required.

Does nobody put into perspective that all this forum flaming and explosion of posts is probably stressing the dude out, no body wants there fans turning against them and in the end yes we are all fans I don't see anyone else here coming near close to what this guy has accomplished.

No in itself hosting a website on the onion is of course not illegal. However given that DPR owns the site he permits what is and isn't allowed to be sold on here (for example, he allows drug but not identities, CC stuff or CP) and also takes a profit from those sales and that is about 5 offenses there on its own.

No it is a valid concern, not irrational. I wouldn't read too much into the email address associated with the gpg key, because anyone can put anything in that field. It would be one of the easiest ways to get information about DPR if he was that stupid to put info that could be associated with him.
My guess would be some spammer/scammer has registered that domain afterwards once seeing his key. I would have probably put obvious garbage in there like you said or at least the onion address of the site. Probably an oversight on his behalf.

The problem we have here is there is no simple way of verifying whether DPRs posted key was valid without SR being online. Luckily like I posted you can check against older copies of messages that were posted here. The difficulty is that you likely don't have copies of those offline and the only copies easily found are on this forum which is also controlled by DPR. I just happened to have 2 messages saved entirely offline from here that I can validate against and as best as you can trust a 2 post screamer they check out.

The true conspiracy theorists would suggest that I'm also DPR. The easiest way to deal with this once this shit all blows over is to make sure DPRs public key is public and stored in places that DPR likely doesn't have control over. Then anyone can verify any of his posts any time they want without relying on people reposting his pubkey here.

Not dogging you, I partially agree but we can't expect Turn-Key service in the drug market world(just yet) They did say they would be surprised if it wasn't back up by Monday and thats assuming everything goes as planned.

We can only expect that if a new or potential threat is discovered we cannot simply call our local Geek Squad and tell them to swing by.

i think this enterprise is ideal driven. this guy dpr is an idealist and he does this for the sake of it. so i would abandon the "made millions and took off theories. there are individuals in the u.s.a that move in a week the amount of drugs and money this site moves in a year-i'm sure of it. so i wouldn't suppose le would do anything but simply shut the site down if they found a way-don't be paranoid people they are not after YOU. i expect that the site will be online before the weekend and big blooming bud business. uknow sr is mostly a midclass+ nerd- market right? we're not making such a HUGE impact on the global drug market..:) give me a break

It's funny that people went a bit loopy, as I just assumed SR was down for maintenance when I tried logging in.... the boys in blue aren't clever enough to shut SR down, and they know if they did another site would open up twice the size within a few hours. Thanks for the update DPR.

Some of them are actually pretty smart.  Basically all of them are competent.  It's not the boys in blue that would worry me though -- it's the one in suits. Especially the ones who sit in rooms with mathematics and 0s and 1s all day every day.  Some of those are as clever as they come, I have no doubt.  Geniuses have to work too, and the government has lots of fun toys if you play for their team.

Underestimating the boys in blue is always a bad idea. Saying that I don't think the place is compromised and if it is I certainly have no fear of my door getting kicked in as a result.  There's a few people here that could do with some tinfoil hats. Also its a perfect opportunity for LE to instill fear by spreading rumors and scaring people away.

Kinda destroys definition of genius, for me it's a person with great insight on matter(adding for example destroying societies), and you simply assumes that he/she would be greedy little prick which like to use toys made mostly by less enlightened ones.

of course downtime is expected, but not this sudden. it's been down going on 4 days now, with no contingency in place for recovering funds in our accounts
i'd have no problem with his saying the site will be shut down for a few days to work out some bugs or manage ugrading the servers. i'd cash out what was left in my account and come back once it reopened
how can a site be down for "scheduled maintenance" only after it shut down unexpectedly?
enough of this double talk

How would consider it double talk? Maybe its just the default message when DPR is working maintenance on the site. Try not to come to conclusions so quickly.

Luckily I'm not too stressed. Have good contacts IRL that will drop to the door for everything except benzo's. But a purchase of those usually lasts me months. Even tho I am keen to try some Dexedrine. That will never happen if this site doesn't come back up.

BMR uses escrow just like SR, scam ratio is similar to SR. The main issue with BMR is lack of selection when compared to SR. That would change I'd imagine if SR tanks and all our vendors set up shop there.  In the meantime I am collecting emails of my fav vendors and looking for good 3rd party escrow support.

I hope you're right.
In the meantime we aren't even being told why the site's down. All we got is a few posts that may or may not even be real signed messages, only saying that we're working on it.
Aside from autofinalization, none of the issues brought up have been addressed and we're still in the dark.

Yeah I hear ya, Let's all hope for a little more clarity in future messages. Hope this shit will be back up soon!

Post by: zumer on November 13, 2012, 12:49 am
Excuse me, but as of yesterday we were told that "you would be very surprised" if the site wasn't up by Monday.
It's now end of Monday, and no follow up today.
There are a lot of people here with significant financial issues being caused by this delay.
When you take on the responsibility of holding thousands of peoples' money in escrow accounts, you are accountable for what is going on.
When your assistant said "monday", we expected either "Monday", or some very frank communication as to what is going on.
There are a lot of people here with blind trust. Me... I've had a bank go under with the manager & assistant buggering off with 30 million in deposits including mine. And the receivers investigated as long as their fees were paid. Once that tap ran dry, they sent out a form letter to depositors saying we were shit out of luck.
So,,, on behalf of a lot of people with money tied up in escrow accounts, we'd like some honest answers.
Right now, the site is a dead link. What does that mean?
I would like nothing more than for a hundred people to criticize me for this post & to be dead wrong.
But when someone gives a commitment, you either meet it, or very clearly explain what is going on.
I understand the nature of this business is built upon secrecy. But it is also built on trust.

"would be very surprised" is not saying that the site would definitely be up by any stretch of the imagination. I'm guessing that he is now very surprised. DPR came on afterwards stating
Quote
Hey everyone,

Again, really sorry for all the headache and heartache this is causing.  Just want to reiterate that everything is fine.  I apologize that I haven't given a specific time-frame, but I really want to make sure that when we reopen we aren't going to run into the same problems we were having.

My best estimate tells me we are looking at a matter of days or maybe a day before reopening, not a matter of weeks, but not a matter of hours either.  I hope that helps some of you plan.

I will keep you updated as I am able.

This was today.

A post before that included
Quote
Luck would have it that the first time I'm away for more than 24 hours

Presumably the admin that originally posted knew when DPR would be back and presumed that DPR would have it sorted in no time at all.

SR is liable for all btc in escrow? Does that mean they are also liable for all buyers addresses that pass through to the vendor? Are the obliged to conform to the laws of data protection and freedom of information (if applicable)...

I have a good idea, if SR decides its game over lets go to our local financial regulators and complain to them to help us retrieve the funds that are currently held is escrow because we wanted to buy illegal drugs over the internet.

Post by: quinone on November 13, 2012, 01:38 am
I don't understand why all you hater's expect a play by play update of what they are doing and when they are doing it.

Our enemy (LE organizations across the world) are watching the site and situation closer then most of us. 

For DPR or any admin to come out here and tell us anything hurt's the security of Silk Road.  LE are itching to find a crack in our solid foundation and giving them timestamps of progress and/or info in what went wrong, or how it's being restored is only going to give our enemies the thing they want most, INFORMATION.

I don't know about anyone else but i'd rather wait for SR to return then to find SR has been permanently put down (and other repercussions) by what i'm sure has been a long ongoing large global collaborative effort of the IT personnel of any LE organization in the world that knows about SR to shut it down.

Those of you complaining the most should have learned a very important lesson, don't leave your money in SR, or in the hands of anyone but yourself and your encrypted wallet.dat that you've put on a hidden volume of a USB stick or other various ways of hiding and protecting your wallet.dat.  The exception of course is money you have tied up in SR ...

Yes many vendor's have their money tied up in SR from order's they shipped right before it went down, and
Yes many buyer's are concerned about their order's auto-finalizing or just having not received an order.

We are ALL in this together, all waiting with concern, but god damn it can't you people learn what PATIENCE is?

I'm sorry to have written a completely trolling post, I am just tired of reading page upon page of BITCHING when we should all just calm the fuck down, let the admin's do their job and HOPE and watch out for updates from those people repairing SR who I am grateful for being smart enough to know to keep their mouths shut short of major announcement's.

Having to try to skim through page upon page of trolling posts (like my own, I admit I may not be helping either ... but I am trying) for the important posts from DPR/admin's is not a very good demonstration of the SR community to ... outsider's that we're all mature adult's does it?

There's nothing ANY of us can do other then learn lesson's on how to conduct business on SR in the eventuality of it coming down and WAIT until the site is HOPEFULLY restored, complaining does not help !

Pablo is absolutely correct, I just presumed that DPR would be able to turn the switch and put the site back up as soon as he got back. I purposely didn't make any promises. What I can promise you, is that we're not taking this lightly. Security is the number one priority here, and in order to achieve that security, we need to take the time to make sure everything is just right before going back up online. I would hope you guys would rather have a top-notch secure system that takes a little longer to go up, then to have some half-ass glitchy mess go up immediately.

Please be patient, we will be back up soon.

brothas n sistas on the road:

I see many of us as part of an overall movement towards greater consciousness and deeper awareness. We tend to "get things" in a much better fashion than we used to. Ultimately we care about the whole. We recognize that this is the path we must take.
Even limlim is finding solace in peace.

We also without thinking know that there is no other place like this. Period. And the fools who have created it, upgraded it, covered losses, responded to endless queries after endless other who knows what have started one of the most incredible master pieces of symbiotic true connected commerce.

So
for the motherfuckers that can't just get over themselves and their problems and their losing out and whaa whaaa whaa. Either RELAXX or get the fuck over it and just wait and see what happens. As far as I'm concerned the replies and updates have been clear. Maybe before posting another whiner post, try and actually reading through the thread.

Thanks for the update Inigo. I want you to know that most of us absolutely support DPR and know that he is doing his best to make sure everything is as secure as possible before the site comes back up. Most of us are happy to wait the extra couple days for peace of mind. Please ignore the insane masses who continue to insult the work you do. You and your team have our full support, and we appreciate the paradise you have built. Please let this post be representative of the average opinion, since I can assure you that it is.

Look, I'm sure there are some legitimate vendors on the site running business. However, anyone who has decided to go there for the week because SR is down for a short time is obviously just not thinking. I've heard about a lot of problems that happen through BMR.

If you really need roxies, I highly recommend taking the plunge into BMR (I know it hurts...it hurt me too) if you can't stand to wait any longer.

Would you like a vendor to scam you and fuck you in the ass? How about a DEA agent showing up at your door and fucking you in the ass? This and so much more can be yours! Just make your way over to BMR, home of the Dumbass Retard*.


*Hint, the Dumbass Retard is you. I don't mean you, person that asked what BMR is. I mean you, person that was dumb enough to try BMR. Kill yourself.

Wait. What? If you use a trusted vendor that you know from SR on BMR (sending info encrypted using their PGP key) where is the harm? I think your comment does not take into account the various scenarios possible. Stop sucking SRs dick so much.

That said, I can't imagine regularly shopping there.

Title: Re: update
Post by: Winston420 on November 13, 2012, 03:15 am
so wen will the site be back up?and i put 220$ in the day the site went down and i havent had any clue if my money is their?the company  that i use sent the cash tos r and i cant know if its there untill the site is up.and the company i use is laget and they sent thw money and hasnt been returned..i have the recite so i hopre the S R will be honest and make sure we all get whats ares..rufus666

I had transferred money to SR and was about to complete an order before the site went down.   As it is part of good practice in keeping transactions anonymous, I requested a fresh btc address to send that money when I sent it.   That address still has that money unspent according to the block chain.   If  SR were to abscond with the money, it certainly hasn't been moved yet to another wallet.

Post by: danknugsdun on November 13, 2012, 03:24 am
While I don't promote usage of BMR I will also not slate them. I'm a vendor there and have made 2 sales along with some in the pipeline.

I prefer SR by hundreds of miles as do 99.5% of the people here but BMR is ok.

Dank

Look, I'm sure there are some legitimate vendors on the site running business. However, anyone who has decided to go there for the week because SR is down for a short time is obviously just not thinking. I've heard about a lot of problems that happen through BMR.

Yeah you're not wrong. I've seen loads of scams happen on BMR on a daily basis. But its mostly to do with the fraudsters. They turn people over, so what do the people who buy from them expect?

I'd like to point out how marvelous this simple sentence is.  "I can't imagine regularly shopping there."  For drugs.  We all shop for drugs in a surprisingly safe, peer-reviewed fashion.  Like it was the fucking corner grocery store, and still people are outraged.  Fuck this race.  Where's my gun -- I'm outta here.  Time to try being a turtle or something.  Yeah...

Amen brother - forgot about Tony76, hope he's freezing his ass off in Canada .  Tough week, first BitInstant stop taking cash deposit via Trust Cash then SR when down and is still lying on the ground.  I would not trash BMR so quick, I did a small transaction with a favorable result.  Keep in mind that SR is a really big target and just like Napster it will be gone one day - at least for the US residents.

I just wanna say many thanks to DPR and all SR staff for keeping this ship afloat.  I know it can't be easy.

I could be wrong but I can't remember a time when an admin refers to Silk Road as "The" Silk Road.....has DPR or any admin ever used "The" I may be wrong I honestly can't recall ever seen "the" before anywhere by a person in charge......anyone else chime in????

Hey gang,

We're still getting things set up.  Nothing new to report.  Obviously I can't say much, but we are redeploying the entire system and it is taking lots of time to get all of the data properly backed up and where it needs to be, not to mention thoroughly testing the changes we are making to the system that will hopefully give us enough head room to grow multiple times again.

I'm fully aware that Silk Road isn't your only choice and that my reputation is on the line right now.  We are working on all of these issues in parallel and will be slamming the caffeine until we are up and stable.

Your next update will come no later than 5 am EST.

Cheers,
DPR

PS - I hear everyone's hopes and fears.  This is a stressful time for some of us.  I'm taking this opportunity to find a calm center as the situation whirls around me and I keep pressing forward, calm and clear.  This won't be the most challenging situation I'll face I am sure and it is good practice.  Good luck to each of you as you get through this with me :)

Okay folks, the DEA thought they had us. They really did. I mean they took all that time capturing DPR, taking over his website, ready to put it back online and take us all down. But you know their one fatal flaw? The word "THE." Nice try DEA motherfuckers. We're on to you.

Oh ..so i'm an asshole for pointing out the TRUTH ???   
Pointing out they  have neither DONE shit, nor have they TOLD US shit.......
why even have an update??    LOL

They've had multiple updates in this very thread. As a matter of fact, let's look at the title of the thread. What is it again?

I'm in shock at the immaturity and hostility of SR users.  Maybe i'm naive, but I thought the users of this site were for the most part intelligent, rational people.  I guess I was wrong, the site has been down for a few days...calm the fuck down, nothing is perfect.  The staff is working their asses off to get the site back up, it is in their best interest to. 

You're all making drug users look like exactly what the media and LE tries to make us look like: a bunch of dirty, low down, no good fiends.  We should be changing this image by behaving like responsible human beings ffs not a bunch of whining cunts.

Thank you DPR for all you do, I'm sure you're doing all you can do to get the site back up and thank you to the members of this forum who aren't acting like fools.

The ignorance of some people on this forum astonishes me. Yeah you have a right to be upset, but in the end underground website coding let alone website coding is a lot more technical than the refresh button you keep pressing every minute to check if maintenance is over.
I decided to purchase goods prior to the crash and now i have no clue where my money is at, all i know is there is NOTHING i can do but be patient and press my refresh button :)

haven't conversed with him personally but DPR comes across as a genuine people's champion, is humble, understands the frustrations of the people and accepts his responsibility towards his users. if my perception is correct there, i would imagine him being very disappointed with the worshippers - he's making an effort to bring people freedoms, the worshippers are busy trying to suppress other people's opinions... think about it :/

Your next update will come no later than 5 am EST.

I'm a complete retard, please avoid me as I may accidentally light something on fire. When I use the bathroom I have a helper because it's hard to do it by myself. If you see me sticking my tongue out, don't worry, that's just how I say hello. I'd continue this conversation but I have to put the vacuum on my penis and see what it feels like.

Fixed that for you.

Title: Re: update where is the PGP signature this time?
Post by: mcfly on November 13, 2012, 04:54 am
TDP's initial message was PGP signed,  PGP key is enclosed.  The signature on first posting checks out OK, but this subsequent posting is unsigned, so no proof that it is he or a member of the staff.

Some peoples livelihoods are committed to SR and that's understandable, but on the other hand there is no reason to be upset. If you did your homework, you already knew of the risks you were taking and prepared for them when You made your account.

i'm actually more upset with vendors not organizing alternatives for their trusted buyers - if you have had a whole bunch of transactions without a single problem with a buyer, supplying small quantities privately till SR is back up (just use this forum or tormail) is minimal risk. The way i see it, my relationship is with the vendors, not SR, that's just a marketplace that makes it easy and safer to do business. i appreciate its existence but ultimately, i'm not buying my weed from SR, i'm buying it from a vendor.

Your reputation ain't on the line boss, you established that as pimp god of the Universe long before now and the fact you're kind enough to keep these fiends informed with a rolling update is outstanding to say the least. Personally if I were you, I would tell them all to STFU and wait you're doing your job, in order to allow others to do theirs safely and securely in a timely and efficient manner, and yet they have no manners... some of them.

BTW, I hear the lookout's sighted land, it can't be too long before we make landfall at our beloved Port Royal, let's hope there's no stormy seas between here and there because I'm sick of having no food and being forced to eat boiled boot leather hasn't been much fun and I think I'm getting scurvy.

This is anonymous, but you're a hero none the less to us all, superhero like even!

You will be remembered one day with Babbage and Gibson as a giant among smurfs and furthermore, when this War On Some Drugs is over, you will be remembered with Marc Emery and Terrence McKenna in the Psychedelic Movement as liberators of the people and their freedoms to expand (or contract) their consciousness as they see fit. I was serious when I said I'd let you fuck my sister too BTW (not that I'm like Lot offering up his daughters to the Sodomites but you get the point).

You show the world what free markets and libertarianism can truly achieve and whoever thinks otherwise is an intellectual midget of biblical proportions!

This is officially my first post on SR forum... My theory on this whole outage mess is as follows: all the impatient hate mongers on here who mistrust the DPR are the people who are hard pressed on obtaining the opiates and amphetamines. The ones who are patiently waiting and holding up faith in peace are the herbalists. The ones with completely unrelated posts like shit about Ke$ha and porn are the habitual LSD and DMT using psychonauts.

k, wasn't going to reply but you made me laugh so you've earned it; you are not funny or humorous, simply come across as a very bitter person who is not capable of having an adult conversation. what i find most amusing is that when your stupid attempts at humor doesn't work, your assessment of the situation is that people don't get it because they're psychopaths - i'm pretty sure psychopaths have a sense of humor too, maybe different to the average person on the street but its there nevertheless. you just aren't funny ;)

Hey gang,

We're still getting things set up.  Nothing new to report.  Obviously I can't say much, but we are redeploying the entire system and it is taking lots of time to get all of the data properly backed up and where it needs to be, not to mention thoroughly testing the changes we are making to the system that will hopefully give us enough head room to grow multiple times again.

I'm fully aware that Silk Road isn't your only choice and that my reputation is on the line right now.  We are working on all of these issues in parallel and will be slamming the caffeine until we are up and stable.

Your next update will come no later than 5 am EST.

Cheers,
DPR

PS - I hear everyone's hopes and fears.  This is a stressful time for some of us.  I'm taking this opportunity to find a calm center as the situation whirls around me and I keep pressing forward, calm and clear.  This won't be the most challenging situation I'll face I am sure and it is good practice.  Good luck to each of you as you get through this with me :)

Hey Shermit,
I'm not out to troll you but I thought about it.
The "worshipers" aren't really worshipers they're also frustrated, yet patient and respective folks who are exercising their own free speech to counter the others.
I think that's how it's supposed to work.  ;)

i don't quiet see how personal attacks on people voicing their opinion makes one patient and respective? free speech is a funny thing, usually the freedom stops if you're attacking people or inciting others to do so - this is why nazi groups publishing hate propanda are not allowed to do so in many countries with 'free speech'. and before you all start, i'm not calling you nazis, its an example!

I completely agree with this statement.  One cannot say that they treasure free speech when they repeatedly and viciously attack those who have opposing viewpoints.

 When you only want people to speak freely about YOUR opinion and you attempt to censor others through intimidation you are NOT a champion of freedom of speech.  You become an adversary to free speech and you are promoting ignorance by trying to stifle others.  Open your mind my friends.  Do it, even if you can find no reason, just do it for the mental exercise.

This is not directed at anyone in particular,.  I am just thining in general how many have been derogatory and hateful towards those who choose to question authority figures.  Yes the admins would count in this case, and YES you CAN question respectfully and still show gratitude for all they have done!!!  We don't have to sit still and shut our mouths, only saying thank you and please.  We can show respect while questioning what we have been told and discussing with each other what we think may be happening behind the scenes.  We can observe and draw opinions from all the information we have gathered over the past few months or years.  We can have an ADULT discussion while still giving thanks to DPR and all of the admins and Mods.

 It is prudent to consider all possibilities, it is foolish and naive to do nothing.

My theory on this whole outage mess is as follows: all the impatient hate mongers on here who mistrust the DPR are the people who are hard pressed on obtaining the opiates and amphetamines. The ones who are patiently waiting and holding up faith in peace are the herbalists. The ones with completely unrelated posts like shit about Ke$ha and porn are the habitual LSD and DMT using psychonauts.

I don't know, I hope we're not really the minority here. I think that most people are just sitting back and laughing their ass off at this thread, content with the knowledge that the site will be back soon. Obviously the trolls and whiners are going to make the most noise. I'm just trying to have fun with it while I can. It's like when that Tony scam happened. I mean it really sucked, and even I lost $250 (I learned a valuable lesson about finalizing early that day... luckily a fairly cheap lesson), but watching the Rumor Mill slowly unravel into an incoherent, rambling mess almost made it all worth it. I wouldn't be surprised if somewhere, DPR has a "fuck shit up" button, just so he can laugh his ass off too. "Let's see, I'll turn this #1 vendor into a scammer. Ah yes, that was a good one. Hmm now I'll shut the site down for a week and see what happens. Haha, of course, they turn into animals. How amusing."

The importance of a signature in this context does tend to be overstated. The only thing it proves is that the person who wrote the message is in possession of the private key. That could be LE.

PGP signatures are certainly useful when your adversaries are run of the mill hackers or scammers, but less so when you have state-level adversaries who can confiscate equipment and apply extreme duress.

That being said, I would hope DPR has a system in place (as I'm sure many others here also do) to destroy his keychain if he thinks he's been compromised.  Obviously if it happened fast enough he wouldn't have had a chance to do that, but if I was DPR, I would be a pretty fucking paranoid guy so hopefully that wouldn't happen.

Boss man, you've been waiting all night and morning, for some of these junkies it's been all day for days.. And when i say who really knows, i'm speaking of fact-based knowledge. Fact is that the crew guy inigo is shocked at this point that the site isn't back up... So for him to be shocked again that it doesn't go up tomorrow wouldn't be particularly shocking. All these users setting the expectations very low may have the effect of being more even more pleasantly surprised when the site does come back up anyway.

Hey Shermit,
I'm not out to troll you but I thought about it.
The "worshipers" aren't really worshipers they're also frustrated, yet patient and respective folks who are exercising their own free speech to counter the others.
I think that's how it's supposed to work.  ;)

i don't quiet see how personal attacks on people voicing their opinion makes one patient and respective? free speech is a funny thing, usually the freedom stops if you're attacking people or inciting others to do so - this is why nazi groups publishing hate propanda are not allowed to do so in many countries with 'free speech'. and before you all start, i'm not calling you nazis, its an example!

I completely agree with this statement.  One cannot say that they treasure free speech when they repeatedly and viciously attack those who have opposing viewpoints.

 When you only want people to speak freely about YOUR opinion and you attempt to censor others through intimidation you are NOT a champion of freedom of speech.  You become an adversary to free speech and you are promoting ignorance by trying to stifle others.  Open your mind my friends.  Do it, even if you can find no reason, just do it for the mental exercise.

This is not directed at anyone in particular,.  I am just thining in general how many have been derogatory and hateful towards those who choose to question authority figures.  Yes the admins would count in this case, and YES you CAN question respectfully and still show gratitude for all they have done!!!  We don't have to sit still and shut our mouths, only saying thank you and please.  We can show respect while questioning what we have been told and discussing with each other what we think may be happening behind the scenes.  We can observe and draw opinions from all the information we have gathered over the past few months or years.  We can have an ADULT discussion while still giving thanks to DPR and all of the admins and Mods.

I think they're cokeheads too, notice how they wouldn't say what Heath Ledger called her about right before he carked it? Probably to tell them the coke wasn't coke at all but some sort of MXE derivative that mixed with his other shit he was on killed him!

Hey Shermit,
I'm not out to troll you but I thought about it.
The "worshipers" aren't really worshipers they're also frustrated, yet patient and respective folks who are exercising their own free speech to counter the others.
I think that's how it's supposed to work.  ;)

i don't quiet see how personal attacks on people voicing their opinion makes one patient and respective? free speech is a funny thing, usually the freedom stops if you're attacking people or inciting others to do so - this is why nazi groups publishing hate propanda are not allowed to do so in many countries with 'free speech'. and before you all start, i'm not calling you nazis, its an example!

I completely agree with this statement.  One cannot say that they treasure free speech when they repeatedly and viciously attack those who have opposing viewpoints.

 When you only want people to speak freely about YOUR opinion and you attempt to censor others through intimidation you are NOT a champion of freedom of speech.  You become an adversary to free speech and you are promoting ignorance by trying to stifle others.  Open your mind my friends.  Do it, even if you can find no reason, just do it for the mental exercise.

This is not directed at anyone in particular,.  I am just thining in general how many have been derogatory and hateful towards those who choose to question authority figures.  Yes the admins would count in this case, and YES you CAN question respectfully and still show gratitude for all they have done!!!  We don't have to sit still and shut our mouths, only saying thank you and please.  We can show respect while questioning what we have been told and discussing with each other what we think may be happening behind the scenes.  We can observe and draw opinions from all the information we have gathered over the past few months or years.  We can have an ADULT discussion while still giving thanks to DPR and all of the admins and Mods.

The importance of a signature in this context does tend to be overstated. The only thing it proves is that the person who wrote the message is in possession of the private key. That could be LE.

PGP signatures are certainly useful when your adversaries are run of the mill hackers or scammers, but less so when you have state-level adversaries who can confiscate equipment and apply extreme duress.

That being said, I would hope DPR has a system in place (as I'm sure many others here also do) to destroy his keychain if he thinks he's been compromised.  Obviously if it happened fast enough he wouldn't have had a chance to do that, but if I was DPR, I would be a pretty fucking paranoid guy so hopefully that wouldn't happen.
This thought is legitimate, understandable, and is not quite attack someone, I agree! But I am convinced that adequate precautions have been taken is that everything will be fine. The first two messages are verified, without error. The third is in the faith!

I'm in shock at the immaturity and hostility of SR users.  Maybe i'm naive, but I thought the users of this site were for the most part intelligent, rational people.  I guess I was wrong, the site has been down for a few days...calm the fuck down, nothing is perfect.  The staff is working their asses off to get the site back up, it is in their best interest to. 

You're all making drug users look like exactly what the media and LE tries to make us look like: a bunch of dirty, low down, no good fiends.  We should be changing this image by behaving like responsible human beings ffs not a bunch of whining cunts.

Thank you DPR for all you do, I'm sure you're doing all you can do to get the site back up and thank you to the members of this forum who aren't acting like fools.

Good one, mate.  :)

Oh yeah, they are total cokeheads.  They sold him/gave him the Oxycontin and ambien that he was on too.  Poor guy, he was having such a hard time sleeping that he took an insane combination of pills.

Oxycontin
Vicodin
Temazapam
Valium
Xanax
Doxylamine (Unisom)

I can't imagine taking even two benzos together with a small dose of hydrocodone....but 3 benzos with unisom and oxy and hydrocodone?!  I have to wonder if maybe he took the temazapam and forgot that he had taken it since it can cause short term memory loss and kept taking other pills?

i would say so, but quietly, so as not to upset the kids, see, no one has told them that this might be a bad sign, and it really upsets them if anyone suggests that anything signed 'DPR' isn't a solid gold turd. perhaps the adults should start a thread where we may quietly discuss our concerns? let the kids play with their Wii's.

Some of us "kids" have been around for a long time. Your post count of 12 is adorable, but it doesn't really make me want to listen to your opinion on the matter. If I had a nickel for every time some paranoid guy claimed that the site was coming to an end because DPR hadn't signed a post, I'd have enough money to buy the site myself. You really think he gives a shit about a signature right now? He's spending time putting the site back together. He's not going to sign a post every goddamned time he checks in to say "still working on it."

you're really going to dismiss someone's valid opinion because of a low post count? you're just another ignorant idiot. nice ego. many of us have made new forum accounts over the last few days just to comment on this mess without fear of repercussion to our accounts on the main site. there's no telling who's who.

No telling who's who.. really? Judging by your username and the nast of your comments here, I think we all know who you are. Be the change you want to see in the world....

Holy shit.  You must have an insane tolerance.  I bet you have withdrawals from hell.  My tolerance was once up to 40mg Oxycodone per day (20 mg 0P 20's 2x a day, sometimes 3) and I tapered off a bit then went cold turkey for a week. I thought I was going to die.  Felt like I was going to have a seizure and I had no balance or coordination. Was also so horribly sick, never have I felt so awful in my life.

What is it like for you when you withdrawls?  That is my biggest fear, having a high tolerance.  I try now to alternate 5 days on oxy) max of 30 mg total a day) with tramadol and neurotin for a week to taper off then back on.

Hopefully we get a new update by 530am EST. (I assume that was the time, cant recall the last update but think it was that time).

Just need my mary jane, and Ill be happy, I dont know how to contact mroiud outside of SR, and I heard is account got taken down recently, so hopefully the admin got my message asking why he was banned...hopefully I can find a new trusted vendor asap, down to my last 14g, and that wont last long.

It seems like an insult  the way you worded it, and people are bnot likely to pay attention to advice, no mtter how good it is when it is given in a negative way.  You could be much more effective toward helping educate people on how to use the quotes properly if you send a quick PM to the person who is making the mistake,or if you make more of a general note to people.

i'm feeling a scam coming onnnnnnnn

how long to keep posting in these forums until people just start cutting losses and moving their accounts?

reminds me of this invite only torrent site i was a member of,  called oink. it got raided and the members didn't really find out all at once and sort of dribbled around the net to find new homes.

i'm actually very concerned for my $$bones i got in escrow currently, i'm worried i'll lose it

1. Dont store them in SR unless you plan to use them that day!
2. Dont spend money you cant afford to lose (Via Scammer, Lost Packages, Or Issues Like This)

As for the scam, again, if they do, they do, and its morally wrong in a sense, however, if you cant afford to lose that, than you should not be spending it....anything can happen with anyone's account at anytime, don't assume the best until you order and have the package in your hand.

like i said my money is in ESCROW, i didn't ever plan on losing it because that is what escrow is for. and yeah, pardon me for being concerned about honest dollars i put into this site, something you may not know about after your last order of 20$ 2C-B or some shit

your right SR is not a privilege, its a paid service and we all pay to use it... therefore I expect, specifically for the vendors that we have an advance warning about the site going down..

its not the 150$ to sign up that I'm talking about, I'm talking about the 4% for the hedging, plus the commission on every sale... If this was a free service and i was acting this way I would deserve your comment... but it is not... we pay and continue to pay and as such we deserve to be treated with respect regarding "down-times"

This is no joke anymore.. this is now going into day 5 with no real info and all kinds of speculation regarding LE, Hackers and DPR himself... we have the right to voice our opinions and not be ridiculed.

I assume there is somewhere between 1-2 million USD stuck on the site and that money belongs to us vendors... after a 5 day lockout shit starts to get real, and it gets there real fast!!!!

you really need to learn to fuck off. let them do work in peace. SR isn't a right it's a privilege you dumb fucker. you need to get laid and relax! and get better weed while you're at it.. m39  :-X :-X


your right SR is not a privilege, its a paid service and we all pay to use it... therefore I expect, specifically for the vendors that we have an advance warning about the site going down..

its not the 150$ to sign up that I'm talking about, I'm talking about the 4% for the hedging, plus the commission on every sale... If this was a free service and i was acting this way I would deserve your comment... but it is not... we pay and continue to pay and as such we deserve to be treated with respect regarding "down-times"

This is no joke anymore.. this is now going into day 5 with no real info and all kinds of speculation regarding LE, Hackers and DPR himself... we have the right to voice our opinions and not be ridiculed.

I assume there is somewhere between 1-2 million USD stuck on the site and that money belongs to us vendors... after a 5 day lockout shit starts to get real, and it gets there real fast!!!!

Fuck your a whiny cunt!!!

Why dont you go to your local Fair Trading/Consumer affairs or whatever they call it in your Country and lodge a complaint haha

Oh that's right its the black market, the goods here are mostly illegal who would of thought eh............

It's not Ebay or Amazon you assume some risk participating here,

Maybe you should retire from here and peddle your pot on a street corner somewhere or better still load a bowl have a smoke and chill the fuck out until everything is sorted.  ;D

I agree that advance notice would be helpful and very much appreciated, but there's no telling if this, or any other downtime is a planned one. Just because things are being upgraded and debugged etc doesn't mean that they were planned to be at this very moment. Though I agree that communication has been less than optimal especially for the first while, I don't believe we can go and rant about our rights. Even though we're paying for this service, it's illegal everywhere, we have no rights in this matter. People need to realise that they take a risk when they put their money into SR, not just because of scammers but simply because SR doesn't have the backing major companies do so stuff like this happens. The staff are just people like you and me working very hard but it's not exactly like they can call the helpdesk. So let's all just chill and see where things go. DPR isn't unreasonable, he refunded me money I lost due to auto-withdrawal function during the last downtime and that was more than a bit of money. I'm sure we'll find a solution to any and all problems that arise due to this downtime. If we weren't resilient we wouldn't be here to begin with.

They can take as long as they want IMO as long as its done right and securely; as in everyone's best interests.  I was on a time crunch for a couple orders to get fulfilled, but i'd rather do business with confidence than do it at all in the case of the site going online without the staff going over any possible breaches with a fine-toothed comb. Thanks DPR.

Dear cunts in this thread...STFU & GTFO.
Go lie and bullshit in off topic or better yet go outside and take a day off.



No vendor or member of SR has ever been told in advance when the server will be going down and don't expect that to change because of a conjured feeling of entitlement. It's actually safer the way it's being done as of now though some prefer the notice all it has ever meant was that the server was being upgraded. So I'll take an educated guess that all the disconnects have left the SR team to upgrade and expand or lose vendors, members and currency from unsatisfied business maintenance and upkeep.

At the moment the site is still down.  No explanation has been given but the owner says they are working on it and will keep reporting back.  They have been updating every few hours and say they hope the site will be back in a few days.

Some people are worried that the site has been infiltrated by the authorities and others are worried that the owner is running a big scam.  There is no evidence for either of these things yet.

Hello DPR and SR staff,
I appreciate the work you have done in establishing this site and the continued work to get it back up. My question is in regards to the auto-withdrawal function established if SR goes down. At what point does this auto-withdrawal trigger? I have checked my wallet and funds have not been dispersed to it and SR is down. Will this auto-withdrawal happen and if so, when? Thanks!

Not a member of staff or anything but in my experience auto-withdrawal doesn't work while the site is offline. There's a chance it might if they let the site go live for a while to test it but with the current situation I wouldn't hope for such a test. Hope that helps a bit.

Everyone understands there have been problems so in regards to finalizes and coins and stuff like that everyone will have to do whats needed when they can.. some peoples attitudes fuckin stink.. you wanna play big boy games then act like big boys not children. I myself have a lot of coins stuck on the site and packages to send and even orders I have made myself but I'm dealing with it and sitting back and relaxing till its all sorted.

I'm alive, I'm safe.  Luck would have it that the first time I'm away for more than 24 hours, the site goes down and I'm the only one that can bring it back up.  As soon as we are sure there haven't been any security breaches and taken all of the necessary precautions, we will get back up and running.  If anyone's orders get messed up because of this (auto-finalizing, etc), we will take full responsibility and make things right, just contact support once we're back up.  I'm terribly sorry for this and all of the recent problems.  I promise it is my top priority to get things running smoothly again.

hi all,

i think there seems to be an element of hysteria here - most people don't seem to rememebr what life was like before SR, TBH we have coins stuck in escrow, orders waiting and coins in wallets too - but is it worth losing any sleep over..?! of course its not!!!

is so much more important that the site is back SAFE and RUNNING WELL AND SECURELY rather than being vulnerable to future problems, i for one salute DPR and the team for all the work they have done and fair trade their pioneering system has facilitated...

As for all the people considering the whole thing is a scam and blah blah blah... look how many transactions are taking place each day, and DPR are taking a healthy commision from each of these - realistically the site is worth so much more running than tearing it down and ripping off peoples wallets..?!?! Also hypothetically if they did that , they would be left with thousands of units of digital currency, the value of which would plummet if SR was down permanently - its a no-brainer..!!!


let these guys do what they do, and take their sweet time doing it - the longer they take the better job we can assume they are doing  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

peace and discordia xxxxx

It is so reasuring to read DPR's words. I keep getting waves of panic when I think about the possibility of SR never returning, I need it for so many reasons. I know it is the same for everyone, loosing this would be really awful.. This has made me realize how important this site is and that I was totally taking it for granted. Thought of it like Ebay and not the risks that are being taken by the staff. Im trying not to get caught up in the drama but when the panic grips me I need to read and talk.

This is my concern, Im sure they are more than aware of this and doing whatever can be done to combat it but if the site came up now suddenly every one will go to it at the same time, then every vendor and buyer will message the support staff to ask them to sort out every single order that was made the couple of days before it went down. The back log will be massive and the amount will grow the longer it is down. I hope they can cope with it.

I agree with the comments made by uniwiz above and many others just chill out a bit and wait to see what happens, Im just here for the reasurance. See it as a holiday from working on SR and try to get all the things you never have time to do, research shit.

Katnip999, nice post that echoes my thoughts about the current situation. I've only traveled the SR for a couple of months but it IS easy to forget what it was like in the "old days". I refer to the past several years with the feds shutting down US based OPs (online pharms), forcing their customers to turn elsewhere which typically involved paying in advance and hoping your goods were eventually shipped and made it through Customs. Reading some of these posts, I'm really thankful any transactions are online and not in person. Reminds me of a favorite quote: “Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference” - Mark Twain

Unfortunately guys, I think SR may have finally come to an end.  If I had to speculate, I would guess that LE has infiltrated the site.  I am basing this idea on several assumptions....

1.). Around October 26/27 the price of Bitcoin dropped due to to heavy selling volume.  Also around this same time, one of the biggest bitcoin vendors on SR went offline and stated that he was down due to 'SR problems and network difficulties'.  This vendor continued with this message the week of 11/5 up until the SR outage.
2.). There has been very little communication from the site admins.  I am guessing that there was some type of dead man switch on the site which trashed the server in the event that the admin had been captured.  LE is probably scrambling to rebuild the site right now and put that bogus maintenance screen up to calm everyones fears.

Thoughts?

For all you fags out there sucking the Pirates Cock,     here is Dread Pirate Robert's Post from NOV. 2     thats TEN DAYS AGO....
  "ok, I think we're getting there people.  please answer the poll I just posted in this thread so I can see if what we are doing is working.  Hopefully we are on the right track and everyone will have the access they need.  THANK YOU everyone for your patience and faith.
For those skeptical about the reason for the problems (too many users, not enough resources), there is an explanation for it, but you didn't guess it and I won't be telling  :P "   

TENS DAYS MOTHERFUCKER     TEN DAYS AND THIS SHIT NOT WORKING, AND YOUR PIRATE STILL WONT TELL YOU WHAT IS WRONG, OR WHEN IT WILL BE RUNNING AGAIN........   

THATS  BECAUSE EITHER LAW ENFORCEMENT IS RE-PROGRAMMING EVERYTHING SO THEY CAN BUST YOU, AND IT"S TAKING THEM TIME,     OR     PIRATE-FAG  HAS NO INTENTION OF THIS RUNNING AGAIN, HE"S STOLEN YOUR MONEY AND WAITING FOR THE TRANSFERS TO FINALIZE. ETC.........DUPING YOU INTO DOING NOTHING YET, WHILE HE RIPS YOU OFF!!!!!

THERE IS NO REASON A SMALL SERVER LIKE SILKROAD SHOULD TAKE THIS LONG TO "RESTORE".......NONE!!!   RESTORE THE EXISTING OLD SYSTEM SO IT RUNS WHILE YOU SIMULTANEOUSLY SET UP AND TEST THE NEW SYSTEM OFFLINE......THEN THE SWITCHOVER TAKES A HALF-DAY AT MOST.      "EXPLOSIVE GROWTH" IS NOT THE REASON PEOPLE.....SILK ROAD WAS NEVER VERY BIG TO START WITH!!!!!!!!!!!!      A SERVER THAT CANNOT HANDLE A FEW THOUSAND USERS ONLINE AT ONCE???  AND MAYBE 500 VENDORS ???        RIDICULOUS!!!!!!

IF I KNEW WHO HE WAS, HE / THEY WOULD BE   DEAD PIRATE ROBERTS ALREADY....I HAVE SERIOUS MONEY INVESTED HERE AND HAVE NOW LOST SERIOUS BUSINESS.............................DIE MOTHERFUCKER!!!     

Kill Yourself Immediately.

Well if your that certain then why dont you fuck off from the forum and be glad your so smart that your safe from getting busted yourself instead of warning all us "retards" of whats going to happen? Just sayin ;)

As a long time greyhat who's provides support to Fortune 100 high availability applications, allow me to say SHIT HAPPENS. They may see 24 hours of fuckness out of 24/365.

And that's in an environment where multimillion dollar solutions are proactively leveraged by masters of their trade.

Kudos to the SR team for reacting professionally and with an appropriate demeanor and flow of communication.

LE is probably scrambling to rebuild the site right now and put that bogus maintenance screen up to calm everyones fears.

Where does this idea of LE maintaining the site come from? Generally LE would be happy to say that they've smashed the Road and leave it at that, enjoy all the positive press that would generate.
Also what are the various laws on entrapment? Surely LE running the site and performing 'sales' is illegal/unlawful as they are encouraging people to commit crime.

It's crazy how quickly people pick up these mad ideas and run with them.

Tired of Bullshit i hear ya about possible sabutage...but there is nothing to be gained by being angry, i know i am in a similar place. I will be making a trek-hitchhiking the interstate-350 miles one way- as a female to go to the only doc i could find that will prescribe Suboxone w/o private insurance on short notice. Only a few docs here have the special license and i called about 20 yesterday , they either want BIG$$$ like $1100, or more commonly, they have a waiting list for at least 3 mos to over a year, due to limits on how many ppl they can have on at a time. And then ppl wonder why heroin usage goes up, when they change the oxycontin formulation, and restrict prescription pain medicines. I am in pain, and now sick too, have so much to do and i can't...i feel for anyone in this position. If only doctors were really doctors here in BFE, and compassionate...a bunch of moralfags sucking DEA dick. I am just putting this idea out there, i'll proly get more negative karma for doing anything other than cheerio msg. Anyone ever think the pushback against prescribing narcotics could be BigPharma influenced? Because all the narcotics (hydro and oxycodone) are generic now, and they make their big money off proprietary like SUBOXONE! And of course, they're losing the war against weed...so a new bogey man arises. I'm sure there are lots of variables to plug in, but they have to keep the LE prison-industrial complex going - for that's a HUGE lobby/influence group.. And keeps heroin from Afghanistan mkts up for their little war profiteering there as well. Don't just come back with a bunch of hate, i'm tryna think beyond the face of things. And that could be useful in SR being down so long as well. If it's true it's because of LE, nothing we can do anyway there either? Just wondering what ppl think can be done? This withdrawal crap on top of pain might have me on edge so ... and so what can we do to make the sitch better?

I wonder how much coffee DPR has gone through in the last 5 days.

Anyone who would even think of coffee at a time like this has never been introduces to the sublime alertness of Provigil and Nuvigil.

When SR is up again, you really owe it to yourself to check out my profile and buy some Provigil (Modafinil) or Nuvigil (Armodafinil) from me.

This stuff is so fucking sweet. No high, no jitters, no addictive properties. It simply eliminates all tiredness and need to sleep. You are alert, refreshed and even quick witted and sharp tongued. Plus you are a better lover, get more work done, exercise more and better, eat less and are more handsome (okay I exaggerated on only that last one - everything else is true).

In conclusion, where was I... Oh my Provigil is wearing off. I'd better get some sleep (after 4 days of constant posting to overcome Limited's lead on me...)

P.S. It has one side effect... namely that you use too many ellipses...

Unfortunately guys, I think SR may have finally come to an end.  If I had to speculate, I would guess that LE has infiltrated the site.  I am basing this idea on several assumptions....

1.). Around October 26/27 the price of Bitcoin dropped due to to heavy selling volume.  Also around this same time, one of the biggest bitcoin vendors on SR went offline and stated that he was down due to 'SR problems and network difficulties'.  This vendor continued with this message the week of 11/5 up until the SR outage.
2.). There has been very little communication from the site admins.  I am guessing that there was some type of dead man switch on the site which trashed the server in the event that the admin had been captured.  LE is probably scrambling to rebuild the site right now and put that bogus maintenance screen up to calm everyones fears.

Thoughts?
Nahh, if that was the case, I'm sure someone in the team or someone somehow associated with SR would have a way of coming on here and letting people know its been compromised. No way in the world that LE could recreate SR in a couple of days, if there was a kill switch i'm sure it would of deleted everything, right? Which means all accounts and histories etc.

I also think people overestimate the amount of LE resourced being used here. Exactly how would LE "capture DPR"? It should be virtually impossible if he takes the right precautions, which I am convinced he does. And if they did, why would they want to keep the site running? The day we go in to SR and see a big FBI logo, then we can start worrying. "SEIZED BY THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT" - lol, that will never happen.

Come on stop speculating people...

Is it a wise decision for LE to take Silk Road down? I mean in one sense it is because obviously there is a huge amount of illegal activity and i expect it is an embarrassment that postmen are now drug mules. But young people aren't hanging round the streets waiting to meet violent dealers who could expose them to even more dangerous drugs such as Meth and Crack. I'm aware you can buy these on the Road too but people also have access to a wealth of safety information about these drugs with a few clicks of the mouse, not unreliable misinformation from peers and pressure to indulge which happens on the streets. Most documentaries and websites would put people right off Meth and Crack. For younger people i think Silk Road is much safer but only if they aren't foolish about what they are buying.

My own personal opinion is that even if Silk Road does come to an end the wheels have already been set in motion and an even more robust alternative will spring up. The service is just too good, not just at providing drugs for recreational use but for people like me who want to obtain things for medicinal use.

On a different subject, would an anonymous market place solely for Cannabis be a good idea or not? The reason i ask is because it has undeniable medicinal value and is gradually becoming more accepted around the world. The advantage would also be that it is extremely safe in comparison to many other substances (meth, heroin, crack etc) so the site would likely not be targeted in such a ruthless manner by LE. It could list items by strain for example and have a wiki with strain information. Anyway it's just a thought as i, like many others, are slightly concerned about the longevity of Silk Road. I hope that DPR will get the issues sorted soon and i'm sure he will.

TiredOfThisBullshit,

There's a bunch of CP accessible through Tor, you don't think interpol would be onto that shit ASAP if it were so easy to bust?

As long as you haven't compromised the entire chain of Tor nodes in a connection, you can't trace IP addresses to SR traffic. You also can't intercept information to find out what information is being sent. Basically your only attack vector on locating the server is bandwidth analysis/sloppy information leaking. Once you have the server all they could gather would be shipping addresses sent to vendors in plaintext, bitcoin addresses of vendors and buyers (which MAY OR MAY NOT be anonymous, depends how careful you are with your coins). I'm sure some people order overseas in large enough quantities for some buyers to be of interest to LE, but you'd hope they were smart enough to use PGP.

PGP encryption can be weak depending on the source of random bits/short key. It's implementation, operating system, and OS version dependent as to whether or not your generated key is as secure as you think it is. If for some reason your key was generated on an embedded device without user input, it's probably shit unless it has a hardware RNG or was created by a really clever coder (any two independent clocks make a hardware RNG).

There are many issues that LE may have with SR, including but not limited to:

- Easier availability of drugs
- Tax evasion
- Freedom

What you sell is irrelevant, if it's easier/safer to buy it online than from the LE undercover cop, or make some money and move it quietly, of have the freedom to buy whatever you wish, the Globalists will take offense.

I see what you mean yeh. I doubt tax evasion will bother them at this point as it is happening on a colossal scale by people unconnected with Silk Road dealing in person. Hopefully Silk Road will emphasize how futile the war on drugs really is though, That's another important aspect of it i feel - It stands as a symbol for what people want and their personal freedoms. The sooner governments start looking at drug use as a health issue rather than a moral/criminal one the better i think.

If for some reason your key was generated on an embedded device without user input, it's probably shit unless it has a hardware RNG or was created by a really clever coder (any two independent clocks make a hardware RNG).

bullshit argument. some cp tor sites HAVE been taken down by police. It's not easy but possible. One of the options is not try to locate the server from 'outside' but instead hack it in some way and obtain the server ip from 'inside' (hope that makes any sense).

I have to agree with TiredOfThisBullshit on a few points. It is ridiculous and embarrassing for a site as bit as sr to be down for ten motherfucking days. Vendors (and I'm one of them, yes I use a fake account obviously) pay a crapload of fees and commission to use this service. some have thousands of btc stored on sr and not a single explanation is given. Yeah, unless you consider the lame 'too many new users' bullshit as an excuse. No site goes down for ten days {EDIT:}on and off{/} because it can't handle some new users. + it's not like it was totally obvious silk road was getting bigger. DPR should have used the funds to prepare for shit like this waaay in advance.

Then the LE problem. Yes, we can all just wait and tell each other to chill the fuck out but TiredOfThisBullshit has a valid point. SR is simply the biggest drug trading site on the internet and police would do anything to bust its vendors. It would definitely be possible to get at least a lot closer to them. For example, they could stop the btc tumbler in a non-obvious way, trace the bitcoins until they reach an exchange like mt gox and demand the gox user's personal info. They can because mt gox is weak as shit when it comes to handing over private information (and so are most other major exchanges).

I am not saying this is the case, just that you shouldn't just ignore the possibilities. Of all people I expected SR users to at least be a little paranoid. We might forget it because we use this site like ebay but SR is serious shit. We shit on LE's reputation and laugh while doing it. We ship insane amounts of drugs all over the world while customs are just totally oblivious of all the goods that pass them.

To quote a US senator (from the sr wikipedia page):

Quote
It's a certifiable one-stop shop for illegal drugs that represents the most brazen attempt to peddle drugs online that we have ever seen. It's more brazen than anything else by lightyears.

That's us. Don't forget it.

EDIT: To DPR: Don't be an asshole and at 23:00 give us a GOOD explanation.

If a drug buyer doesn't receive the goods he has paid for he deserves an explanation. If we, the vendors, don't get access to our 'product' deserve one too because we are YOUR clients. Right now you only come up with bullshit reports about how hard you're working. We don't give a hit. We want to know WHAT you're actually working on. Because some serious shit needs to be going down for a site not to function for ten days straight.

If at 11 o'clock you're just posting that you're still working very hard, the site's still down and you don't know when it will be finished, i can't take you seriously.

Other then the possibility massive hardware failure the only remaining issue is hackers.  SR was compromised by hackers most likely after the stored BTC. With out any major blockchain moves they where probably unable to breach SR financial systrm. I am sire they did some damage to the site or stole information as barganing chips.

and Ive adminned a drug forum that tries to keep its operators anonymous, nothing like this.  but even that, making and moving backups, fixing and testing software issues, uploading and downloading site backups or making sure mirror sites work takes tons of time especially if you do all of the transfers through tor or vpn proxies.  they are slow and if something doesn't work, you have to do it over.

Last couple of posts point to LE as an issue or culprit of the downtime. I do not believe this is the case. The events that have transpired are not indicative of LE infiltration. Other then the possibility massive hardware failure the only remaining issue is hackers.  SR was compromised by hackers most likely after the stored BTC. With out any major blockchain moves they where probably unable to breach SR financial systrm. I am sire they did some damage to the site or stole information as barganing chips. DPR is probably trying to close the security breach and or negotiating with whoever compromised the site.

The problem is that no matter the reason we DESERVE the know what the fuck is going on. Hackers, OK, but tell us. LE, ok, tell us, fucked up hardware, how hard is it to just fucking tell.

Like I said earlier: we (vendors) are the clients here and DPR is failing miserably to deliver the product we have paid for (the site) or to at least keep up up to date on its status.

do we really need to know exactly whats going on?think about it the less that is put on this forum the better sure dpr could tell us but then the many LE who scope this site will know jus be happy dpr giving us updates and hasnt went into darkness. 8)

Ok I guess I'm still a noob.. but what exactly is an "LE"?

Yes, they are being very vague and the story isn't adding up.

DPR said that it was a surprise in the first post, but on the website it says scheduled maintenance.

There are a few things that I believe could be happening right now:
1) SR was unexpectedly downed and DPR lied about the maintenance being scheduled for some reason.
2) SR is changing or expanding hosts and DPR doesn't want us to know for anonymity and security reasons.
3) SR was taken over by feds and they are in the process of modifying SR to addresses are logged to them. (not too likely, but there is a chance)
4) SR was downed unexpectedly and they are upgrading the security

1,2 and 4 are correct
1. - DPR has come on and said he has been away for 24hours to find out silk road was down and only he can get it up again. He hasnt lied about maintence, the maintence came up when he got back because it is maintence now even though it was not scheduled.
2. He maybe changing/expanding hosts now so when it comes up it doesnt go down straightaway and yes he cant say to much for security and anonymity reasons, he has to be safe.
4. yep both i reckon

This thread is so full of stupid it hurts!

Please, everyone, STFU and let the SR Staff and DPR do their job so hopefully our awesome drug paradise can come back!

PS - All you junkies crying like children cause your fix will take longer, go get hookups IRL for hell's sake! How the fuck did you get into drugs in the first place? If it was on SR you found your DOC that you're now addicted to than you deserve all the withdrawals you're suffering right now...

I doubt it. I would guess that it takes an average of two weeks for a bitcoin to come into SR in a buyers hands and leave in a sellers hand.

If $1m in drug sales are made in the two weeks, then he would get $1m, but he could wait and keep it running and get only $100k of that.

Basically, DPR has the choice between $1m and no continuous income or $200k/mo

[Provigil/Nuvigil] is so fucking sweet. No high, no jitters, no addictive properties.
I was prescribed Provigil (modafinil) for my narcolepsy. It cracked me out, like having had several large cups of coffee (with quad shots of espresso, yum). Very VERY bad jitters, mild nausea, and it left me in a talkative and scatterbrained state. It also put me in a foul mood. It has more than once been the result of me talking too much and getting myself in trouble.

The only thing that has truly worked for me is d-amphetamine. It is euphoric, but it has a rational high and no jitters. At least, for me. And it's been studied much more than modafinil...

Just a reminder to you people requesting that your SR wallet balances be sent to emergency addresses... seeing that high volume of BTC activity would be a red flag for any LE following the events here, and it would help them trace SR users. It would be a huge security risk.

Last couple of posts point to LE as an issue or culprit of the downtime. I do not believe this is the case. The events that have transpired are not indicative of LE infiltration. Other then the possibility massive hardware failure the only remaining issue is hackers.  SR was compromised by hackers most likely after the stored BTC. With out any major blockchain moves they where probably unable to breach SR financial systrm. I am sire they did some damage to the site or stole information as barganing chips. DPR is probably trying to close the security breach and or negotiating with whoever compromised the site.

I bet it's even more mundane than that. SR is a custom software platform. The advantage compared to an out-of-the-box CMS solution like Drupal is that you don't have to spend time reading and understanding someone else's code, and removing unnecessary "features" that are potential security threats. The disadvantage is that you don't have a large team of coders and thousands of beta testers. So it appears the SR platform has some critical bugs that greatly reduce performance, and now a tiny team (possibly only DPR) has to fix everything while the rabble goes all apeshit with conspiracy theories.

For some reason most of you are unable to realize the very nature of this site is anonymity.  Do you really think he's going to disclose what's happeend, what bugs he's fixing, etc.  That identifying information, which compromises security.  He's providing you with updates explaining hey, It'll be up soon be patient, Anything else is truely uncessary.  I've been here for over a yr, and a little SR downtime every so often is not uncommon so seriously take a chill pill.

so, I hate to be the conspiracy theorist as I'm usually not around here, but following some known SR transactions through blockchain.info I see large amounts of funds (12,000+ BTC) being moved around as of even just a few minutes ago from what must be a SR holdings address (had 275,000 BTC come through it).
DPR, why are you moving funds around when I would assume everything should remain frozen?

I would have to disagree that if LE took the site down that they'd have some big announcement on Google news or something like that.  In fact, I would expect them to milk the information from behind the scenes for as long as possible versus tipping everyone off that it has been busted.

One thing that can't be denied is that the Bitcoin got hammered down around Oct 26/27 and that event coincided with one of the main BTC vendors on SR going down WELL BEFORE the SR outage.  Possibly someone on the inside got tipped off that a bust was coming and then sold off their coins.

Another reason that I believe you have not heard very much information from DPR or the site admins is that if LE is actually in control of the site, they do not want to tip people off by posting long drawn out posts which may sound or appear to be out of character or different in writing style from the real DPR. 

As far as those that think the site is well protected and that LE would never be able to find out where the server was located, I would have to disagree with that also.  Even though the IP may be hidden, I am fairly confident that you could flood the site with traffic at non peak times and then monitor the corresponding traffic through the major networks to see where the packets went. 

I hope I am wrong.

DPR, why are you moving funds around when I would assume everything should remain frozen?

Yes, that's the good question, there were several transactions of about 12.000 BTC which is very large unusual amount.

so, I hate to be the conspiracy theorist as I'm usually not around here, but following some known SR transactions through blockchain.info I see large amounts of funds (12,000+ BTC) being moved around as of even just a few minutes ago from what must be a SR holdings address (had 275,000 BTC come through it).
DPR, why are you moving funds around when I would assume everything should remain frozen?

First, if you are looking for cancer, you will find cancer. You're looking for fraud, so you see fraud. You have no idea what these accounts are, these juxtapositions are not helping yourself  nor any of your peers.

Here is a plausible expanation:

People are buying and selling BTC. If you recall, a couple weeks ago BTC got slammed. For every seller, there has to be a buyer. These buyers maybe dumping off with their $1->$3 USD profit / BTC.

Not everything is a conspiracy.

If DPR got compromised and it is the LE writing those messages (means they also coerced him/her sign the message using GPG or give up the private keys... is this likely?)

I analyzed transactions further... amount of about 12000 BTC was jumping about 10 times from wallet to wallet until I came to wallet where there were many smaller amounts from multiple wallets coming into it, but that happened today, so I doubt they are SR transactions... it's something else, don't know what..

Seriously, however, this is not boding well for the crowd.  People are pointing to "evidence" that this is nothing to worry about.  What kind of evidence would there be if there is something bigger to worry about?

I'm sure this has been covered, but has anyone confirmed that the recent messages were in fact signed by dpr? I haven't been reading every single post like some of you are, but last i heard there was some issue with his sig on at least one post since Sr went down.  What's the status of that? Are we absolutely 100% sure that the person posting as dpr has access to his correct PGP key?

You realize that if you are looking for evidence of a crime, you view everything that is potentially damaging as damning evidence. Step back and be objective. There is more than one site that uses BTC, there are several laundering services that easily move 20K+ btc daily.

No, you can check my posting history here... been on here for a while and spent somewhere around $11k on SR with another $2k that I just added to my account to make another large purchase right before the site went down. I've never even visited BMR and don't intend to.
I'm not accusing DPR of anything, but it is curious that just a step from transactions that I know were to SR show activity right now. And by right now I mean literally minutes ago. Look for yourself if you've recently added funds to SR...
I would think it's just a mixing algorithm, except it doesn't seem to be mixing, just moving - and these were funds that sat in a big wallet for a long time and just started moving today. Why?

Another thing that concerns me is that when you load the SR page and then click on the logo it takes you to a broken link page which shows that the server is running Ubuntu.  If you are so concerned about security, why are you broadcasting that the server is running Ubuntu?  That right there seems like classic LE ignorance. OR, did the admins actually edit the config files so that it erroneously shows Ubuntu as a disinformation technique?  Hmmm...

I hope you are wrong too. 

To all the people who are afraid that rational, respectful comments like this will drive DPR to decide not to host SR for us any longer....you guys are acting like junkies too, so pot meet kettle.  Are you saying that you think DPR is so fickle and egotistical that he can't handle people making harmless conjectures which in no way attack his character? Even the nasty comments, I can't believe you people think that he would let those be the only deciding factor for his pet project.

Come on people, you are ass kissing because you are afraid your site will be shut down.  Let's call a spade a spade.  None of us want SR to be shut down.  We are all here for the drugs.  Quit trying to make yourself out to be above everyone else just because you are afraid to breathe too loud in the presence of the admins.  Quit calling people junkies when it is obvious that you would fall in that category too.  Quit putting on airs because you smoke pot or take shrooms. I have met plenty of people living dead end "junkie" lives who "just smoke weed".  I have also met people with families and careers who do cocaine or take lots of pain pills.  It doesn't necessarily follow that pot=better.

I think DPR is way too open minded, rational and sane to let a few nasty comments and a bunch of well thought out theories change his mind about his life's work.  Come on now, use your brains. You can't really mean what you are saying.

It was doing that earlier on the 404, personally I don't think saying its running on Ubuntu is giving too much away, but agree its better not to say anything.

Regardless SR website is now showing the SR logo and message:

I'm sure before SR you always found a way to find your meds/drugs..so if you are really in need you can still find a way today.

Last couple of posts point to LE as an issue or culprit of the downtime. I do not believe this is the case. The events that have transpired are not indicative of LE infiltration. Other then the possibility massive hardware failure the only remaining issue is hackers.  SR was compromised by hackers most likely after the stored BTC. With out any major blockchain moves they where probably unable to breach SR financial systrm. I am sire they did some damage to the site or stole information as barganing chips. DPR is probably trying to close the security breach and or negotiating with whoever compromised the site.

The problem is that no matter the reason we DESERVE the know what the fuck is going on. Hackers, OK, but tell us. LE, ok, tell us, fucked up hardware, how hard is it to just fucking tell.

Like I said earlier: we (vendors) are the clients here and DPR is failing miserably to deliver the product we have paid for (the site) or to at least keep up up to date on its status.

Yes, they are being very vague and the story isn't adding up.

DPR said that it was a surprise in the first post, but on the website it says scheduled maintenance.

There are a few things that I believe could be happening right now:
1) SR was unexpectedly downed and DPR lied about the maintenance being scheduled for some reason.
2) SR is changing or expanding hosts and DPR doesn't want us to know for anonymity and security reasons.
3) SR was taken over by feds and they are in the process of modifying SR to addresses are logged to them. (not too likely, but there is a chance)
4) SR was downed unexpectedly and they are upgrading the security

There is option 5 as well (which I hope is not true)
5) DPR pulled off a pirateat40

I doubt it. I would guess that it takes an average of two weeks for a bitcoin to come into SR in a buyers hands and leave in a sellers hand.

If $1m in drug sales are made in the two weeks, then he would get $1m, but he could wait and keep it running and get only $100k of that.

Basically, DPR has the choice between $1m and no continuous income or $200k/mo

As long as we're throwing around theories...This doesn't take into account the amount of stuck coin in every buyer/vendor account in the system when the site went down. That figure might be a litte higher than $1m. Who knows how many users keep that as their main wallet because of the added security it offers. The same random key system that launders your btc to keep your transactions anonymous is just how he's cashing out every account to hide the huge transactions in the blockchain. The emergency backup wallet address system leads to his gox accounts.If he started cashing out 5 or 6 days ago, that money is long gone and certainly would explain the 40 cent dip over the weekend. With more to come immediately once the rest of the rubes on here realize it's never coming back. Maybe he is pirateat40. In that case i'd agree that he is the true genius you asshole lickers say he is.
Nobody expected this site to last forever.
dp rob saw now to be the perfect time to get out


You're all wrong. The server is still under my control. DPR has until 22UTC to meet my demands or the db will be leaked.

What does OP updated mean?  Not to be a dick, just curious.


OP = Original Post

Are you new to the Internet? :D

It's more commonly know as 'Orginal Poster' ...but whatever

Not true, it depends om the context. DPR said "check OP", check original post makes more sense in this context. And who the hell says "but whatever" anyway? :D

Oh right, kids.

Not familiar with the word 'om'
I know it depends on the context! I never said original poster was the only meaning.
And to repeat something that has been pointed out a few posts above suggests that you need to closely read previous posts my friend.

-1. Please stop cunting up threads with this type bullshit.  Last thing people want to read about is you arguing about semantics because you got butthurt about someone correcting you.

Sorry for being an asshole, but whatever. Wading thru pages of bullshit to find something relevant is annoying as fuck.


Unfortunately guys, I think SR may have finally come to an end.  If I had to speculate, I would guess that LE has infiltrated the site.  I am basing this idea on several assumptions....

1.). Around October 26/27 the price of Bitcoin dropped due to to heavy selling volume.  Also around this same time, one of the biggest bitcoin vendors on SR went offline and stated that he was down due to 'SR problems and network difficulties'.  This vendor continued with this message the week of 11/5 up until the SR outage.
2.). There has been very little communication from the site admins.  I am guessing that there was some type of dead man switch on the site which trashed the server in the event that the admin had been captured.  LE is probably scrambling to rebuild the site right now and put that bogus maintenance screen up to calm everyones fears.

Thoughts?
Nahh, if that was the case, I'm sure someone in the team or someone somehow associated with SR would have a way of coming on here and letting people know its been compromised. No way in the world that LE could recreate SR in a couple of days, if there was a kill switch i'm sure it would of deleted everything, right? Which means all accounts and histories etc.

I also think people overestimate the amount of LE resourced being used here. Exactly how would LE "capture DPR"? It should be virtually impossible if he takes the right precautions, which I am convinced he does. And if they did, why would they want to keep the site running? The day we go in to SR and see a big FBI logo, then we can start worrying. "SEIZED BY THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT" - lol, that will never happen.

Come on stop speculating people...

Yes.  Finally some calm, rational thinking.


I don't see how they could catch vendors at this point...c'mon  they're using Tor and PGP? maybe i'm missing something here?

There is no real anonymity or security on the internet.....go search google when your bored you'll find page after page of how to crack Tor, how PGP isn't secure,  blah blah blah........it's NOT EASY.....but if the resourses are allocated to , for instance, the CIA or FBI to crack this?   It's over!! 
Security is just a matter of levels...the higher level you get, the MORE difficult to crack....usually time and resources are not worth it..but to bust SILKROAD??    Thats a big peacock feather in the hat of the big boss who's team cracks it!!!     Don't think for a minute they can't.....because they can!!!   

You remind me of that snivelling little troll who kept creating all those sock puppet accounts during the Tony76 fiasco.  The one who kept getting each new account banned...  Your writing style is virtually identical.  I don't think you're the same person, because you're not quite as annoying, but you're pretty fucking close.

How about just waiting to see what happens, and in the mean time, chilling the fuck out?

Last couple of posts point to LE as an issue or culprit of the downtime. I do not believe this is the case. The events that have transpired are not indicative of LE infiltration. Other then the possibility massive hardware failure the only remaining issue is hackers.  SR was compromised by hackers most likely after the stored BTC. With out any major blockchain moves they where probably unable to breach SR financial systrm. I am sire they did some damage to the site or stole information as barganing chips. DPR is probably trying to close the security breach and or negotiating with whoever compromised the site.

The problem is that no matter the reason we DESERVE the know what the fuck is going on. Hackers, OK, but tell us. LE, ok, tell us, fucked up hardware, how hard is it to just fucking tell.

Like I said earlier: we (vendors) are the clients here and DPR is failing miserably to deliver the product we have paid for (the site) or to at least keep up up to date on its status.

Yes, they are being very vague and the story isn't adding up.

DPR said that it was a surprise in the first post, but on the website it says scheduled maintenance.

There are a few things that I believe could be happening right now:
1) SR was unexpectedly downed and DPR lied about the maintenance being scheduled for some reason.
2) SR is changing or expanding hosts and DPR doesn't want us to know for anonymity and security reasons.
3) SR was taken over by feds and they are in the process of modifying SR to addresses are logged to them. (not too likely, but there is a chance)
4) SR was downed unexpectedly and they are upgrading the security

There is option 5 as well (which I hope is not true)
5) DPR pulled off a pirateat40

I doubt it. I would guess that it takes an average of two weeks for a bitcoin to come into SR in a buyers hands and leave in a sellers hand.

If $1m in drug sales are made in the two weeks, then he would get $1m, but he could wait and keep it running and get only $100k of that.

Basically, DPR has the choice between $1m and no continuous income or $200k/mo

As long as we're throwing around theories...This doesn't take into account the amount of stuck coin in every buyer/vendor account in the system when the site went down. That figure might be a litte higher than $1m. Who knows how many users keep that as their main wallet because of the added security it offers. The same random key system that launders your btc to keep your transactions anonymous is just how he's cashing out every account to hide the huge transactions in the blockchain. The emergency backup wallet address system leads to his gox accounts.If he started cashing out 5 or 6 days ago, that money is long gone and certainly would explain the 40 cent dip over the weekend. With more to come immediately once the rest of the rubes on here realize it's never coming back. Maybe he is pirateat40. In that case i'd agree that he is the true genius you asshole lickers say he is.
Nobody expected this site to last forever.
dp rob saw now to be the perfect time to get out


You're all wrong. The server is still under my control. DPR has until 22UTC to meet my demands or the db will be leaked.
Roberts is crossed no doubt. Let's see how he handles this.
You junkies amuse me.

Haha, kid please.

Post by: QualityMeds on November 13, 2012, 10:06 pm
First, for all my customers (I'm a vendor on SR by the same name, QualityMeds), as soon as SR is back up, all orders will be shipped promptly. I don't see it taking more than one or two days to get all the pending orders shipped. Also, I still offer free samples of everything I sell, read my profile/signature at the end of my post here for my items. Message me with your name/shipping address and what samples you want to try out.

About this situation: I think it's so funny how people overreact to these down times. I've been a vendor on other sites and forums for many years. I would go away for a few days on business and would return to people posting every conspiracy theory in the book, from LE busting me to me running away with all their money. People cry scammer so easily. I don't blame them though, nearly everyone who cries scammer is someone who has been scammed in the past. It's too bad, if it weren't for all those filthy scammers, we wouldn't have anything to worry about. They ruin it for the rest of us honest vendors.

Yes, it is true that sometimes it is a scam and the seller/vendor will run away with your money. But one thing I've noticed, and this holds true 95% of the time - when you've really been scammed, all communication ceases. The fact that DPR is updating us every 5 hours is the best sign. If he wanted to run away with all of our money then he wouldn't be wasting his time updating us on the status of the site. In fact, after he emptied all the bitcoin into his own wallet, he would have probably just shut it all down and put the server offline, to cut any ties. He definitely would not be wasting his time updating us on the status, he'd be on some tropical island sipping margaritas on a beach probably his own island as I'm sure he has the money to afford that LOL.

The fact is that SR makes a hell of a lot more money for DPR by being up. What is the point in scamming everyone? He sounds like a standup guy in my opinion, and besides the money he makes, what he's doing is more important than money. It is a freedom to put in your body what you choose, one step closer to defeating this insane war on drugs, which has cost more lives than it has saved and has cost the taxpayers in the United States a shit-ton of money by filling up our jails with low-level drug dealers or just users, creating ex-cons who don't have a chance to reintegrate into society when they get out of jail because of the ex-con stigma, essentially ruining their lives. 50 years from now, we'll look at this the same way we look at the freedom of speech, and wonder how crazy it was when the governments would put people in jail for smoking weed or sniffing a few lines of coke, or selling a couple ounces of pot. Thank god that Colorado and Washington have set the first precedents and have made marijuana completely legal for recreational use by those 21 or over, giving it the same status as alcohol. It's about time!

Thanks DPR for all you are doing. I'm sure you and your team are doing the best you can to bring SR back up and running. It's worth the wait to get it running faster and smoother.

So the 12,000 BTC originateing from SR wallet addresses that we've seen being shuffled around the blockchain is roughly the earlier estimate of all SR transactions left in limbo since the site was down.

Coincidence? I think not.

This pretty much confirms that dp rob sold SR. All he's doing now is clearing out the remaining BTC in everyone's accounts and getting the new ownership up to speed.

No properly signed messages, only vague updates about when the next update will be. Does this sound like the real DPR to you?

Maybe real DPR has sold SR few months ago. Check this out:

 "What troubles especially paranoid Silk Road is that DPR is usually a voluble presence on board. In honor of 4/20, he held a massive drug sale on Silk Road, which was advertised as including a giveaway with a grand prize of "a trip for two with all the trimmings to paradise, all expenses included." But he's only posted on Silk Road forums three times since May 6th.
"Does anyone else find it strange that DPR's post count dropped significantly?" asked a user today. "I never payed much attention to it before until a friend mentioned that some major MDMA distributors from the NW USA heard about the operators of [Silk Road] getting caught. I brushed it off as a rumor until I looked through DPR's post count and now I'm a bit concerned. I know this is pure speculation as I have no evidence or reliable source, It just seems like something worthy of discussing." "

Of course it is just a kind of speculation. But perhaps we are witnessing the end of the Silk Road. But the idea will not die. I can only quote the real DPR: "The die have been cast [sic] and now we will see how they land. We will be diverting even more effort into countering their attacks and making the site as resilient as possible, which means we may not be as responsive to messages for a while. I'm sure this news will scare some off, but should we win the fight, a new era will be born. Even if we lose, the genie is out of the bottle and they are fighting a losing War already."

I see. So it's the new ownership ripping us off. dread pussy roberts is long gone

I don't like your user name. You should change it.

If what you allege is actually what's going on, then it's your own fault for leaving Bitcoins in your SR wallet like that. You should only keep it in SR for when you are transferring payments.

But, of course, you're wrong, DPR is not pulling a burn. Your speculation is worse than U.S. Republicans right now. Maybe it's contagious.

Alright, so I hope I'm not being naive in my quick analysis here. Let's just think about law enforcement taking over.

So we have three privacy mechanisms (granted, one of which some users don't always use...):
PGP
TOR
Bitcoin

Using PGP, there is virtually no way for LE to get your information unless the vendor is compromised. Even so, because it is tor, they have almost no way of getting the information about the actual user, provided they are browsing carefully with no scripts enabled.

Anyways, say they get this address. They can't do anything immediately. It is not illegal for drugs to be ordered to your address. Besides being backed by the law, this also makes sense...  I could otherwise send drugs to a person I detest in order to get them arrested. The only way you can be arrested from this action is if upon arrival you either sign for the package OR it is found to be open (from a raid) without your calling the police. If you leave it unopened for ~8 hours afterwards, you are probably safe for the second part. Even so, this could only really happen if you didn't use PGP... If the vendor is compromised, they can't still send drugs your way just to get you arrested. I mean, LE can do some stupid shit, but that is clearly illegal.

Well, not a thorough analysis, but I think I covered the major points.

TL;DR Stfu you guys, we're fine.

* 12,000 BTC moving on blockchain from SR wallets is a valid question/concern.

I'm surprised no one has brought up a great reason why the 12,000 BTC (about $120,000USD) thing is bunk. It's very simple- That's a laughably small number of BTC compared to the commission made off the whole site's transactions in just one month.

Even JUST using the USA domestic cannabis category for some simple calculations.... I estimate the top vendors move about $2000-5000 of product in a given week based on feedback frequency and checking the item descriptions for those feedback. NCK, Rook, Tweetb and many others crush $2000 a week bare minimum.. So that's an easy $10,000 a week for 5 top vendors, $40,000 in a month. There's dozens more active vendors in just Cannabis alone, I would say even $200,000 from all domestic cannabis vendors in a month is a very VERY low number. Commission is somewhere in between 6-10%, and 10% off that $200k is $20,000 in a month for commission.

Then factor in that there's dozens of drug/other categories and vendors all over the world, custom and private listings, and people that don't leave feedback... that $20,000 from cannabis seems very small. Taking 12k BTC lump sum against a constant and cumulative commission rate like that is just financially retarded.

Taking 120k BTC lump sum against a constant and cumulative commission rate like that is just financially retarded.

Basically what I was going to say. There are probably some who are fearing the worst with these rumors of DPR taking all the BC's. Hence they expect the value of the coins to drop when there is a large volume of sales, so they are going to sell before they loose the value of the coins they have. Yet another feasable explanation.

This is getting ridiculous....I mean, scheduled maintenance, closing in on almost a week,  that was never announced to any buyers or sellers and now we are all in a cluster fudge. I paid for express delivery too and because vendor didn't get my address before site went down (but he did put it in transit) I am now stuck without my shiet and have had to spent extra on shipping for something I really needed today. The worst part is the damn site won't go back up for him to get the damn address. And he hasn't logged onto forums since the 6th. *sigh* Weren't we suppose to get an update by now? I mean at least tell us to stop hammering the site and some type of realistic ETA. /end vent.

Ive been refreshing the SR page like every few min since like friday now, and even after changing identity in Vidalia, it seems the SR page is loading much faster now, like as of the last hour(s) or so.  maybe just lucky connections or something,  but it really seems faster to me, even faster than the forums atm.. hopeful =D

I wonder if when the site reopens "for vendors at first" to take care of business, might buyers still have access to browsing or messaging even if they can't make orders? With the change in expected order time-frames some of us might hope to catch them in time to cancel or modify existing arrangements with vendors before they send something out? That'd be nice.

If you read DPRs original post he says the site went down while he was away for 24 hours. I'm pretty sure it wasn't a 'scheduled maintenance' that is just the default message when people try the mainsite.

Look...I'm officially calling out the asshole who calls themselves, "iHateNiggers:"

If this asshole were to meet me in person on a street corner anywhere in the entire United States of America (including Alaska and Hawaii), would this idiot have the courage to call me a "nigger" to my fucking face!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   I THINK NOT.    The internet (whether its clearnet or darknet) is anonymous.   So, I say, HELL THE FUCK NO!!!  It's because, this idiot is "all hat and now cattle."  That's right, this is a term out of the great American state of Texas.

Look, as a "nigger" in this idiot's book, here's how I see what's going on here:

1) DPR wants everybody on his website to be safe.   If we are all safe then he and his crew are safe.  End of story!!!!! 

2) When there's high demand for anything (including the fucking Internets);  the supplier of that demand much tread carefully.   What's the use of higher demand if suppliers can't safely supply the demand. 

3)  There are so many veterans of what SR was in the past and if they can keep the faith, then I can.   

4)  Silk Road is just not a site that has been overtaken by LE.   LE want their presence to be known.   Even if they are behind the scenes collecting evidence in which they bring somebody down.   Ultimately, they want their final product to be something that everybody can see far and wide (even on the internets).    Somebody else on these forums mentioned "Megaupload."   Well, guess what, this is a good example.   Here's another example I can point at, "Isohunt."    This site was not closed down by the authorities, but they settled in court and it's clear that they did that.   

However, here's where I disagree with DPR:

4) Look baby, I know you are trying to be safe, but I just received two orders I managed to make right before SR went down completely.   These orders are in escrow and I really, really, really wish I could finalize these orders.    I got these orders safe and sound, and I wish pay these vendors as they deserve.   One vendor has just sent me more of what may become my favorite weed strain of all time....Atomic Northern Lights!!!!   And another vendor was able to send me a strain of weed that I've been anxious to try because I was a former Girl Scout...that's right Girl Scout Cookies!  That's right, "iHateNiggers," this nigger was actually a Girl Scout!!!!  Suck on my swollen clit and quivering pussyhole, you asshole!!!!

5) This Mises (or Austrian Economics) BS just doesn't work.   However, I'm willing to debate DPR in another forum on this issue.   I'm still patient with DPR because they are still are great.  They have shifted the mainstream paradigm despite themselves.  And for that, I am thankful and grateful. 

That's enough out of me.  I have bitcoins ready to spend on whatever SR presents to me.   Yet, I still want to be safe.   And despite everything I've done up to this point, I'm still safe.   And I thank DPR for that.

I'm surprised no one has brought up a great reason why the 12,000 BTC (about $120,000USD) thing is bunk. It's very simple- That's a laughably small number of BTC compared to the commission made off the whole site's transactions in just one month.

Even JUST using the USA domestic cannabis category for some simple calculations.... I estimate the top vendors move about $2000-5000 of product in a given week based on feedback frequency and checking the item descriptions for those feedback. NCK, Rook, Tweetb and many others crush $2000 a week bare minimum.. So that's an easy $10,000 a week for 5 top vendors, $40,000 in a month. There's dozens more active vendors in just Cannabis alone, I would say even $200,000 from all domestic cannabis vendors in a month is a very VERY low number. Commission is somewhere in between 6-10%, and 10% off that $200k is $20,000 in a month for commission.

Then factor in that there's dozens of drug/other categories and vendors all over the world, custom and private listings, and people that don't leave feedback... that $20,000 from cannabis seems very small. Taking 12k BTC lump sum against a constant and cumulative commission rate like that is just financially retarded.

edit- 120k to 12k BTC in the last line.

Yeah I was gonna interject, but its pointless trying to convince people here lol.

I ALONE have 1675BTC in limbo there .. and I am not even that large of a vendor. All the MOM, NL MDMA, Coke guys etc ... There is likely in the neighborhood of 100000BTC on the site, not 12000 lol

so, I hate to be the conspiracy theorist as I'm usually not around here, but following some known SR transactions through blockchain.info I see large amounts of funds (12,000+ BTC) being moved around as of even just a few minutes ago from what must be a SR holdings address (had 275,000 BTC come through it).
DPR, why are you moving funds around when I would assume everything should remain frozen?

The bitcoins that I sent to a fresh bitcoin address on SR right before the site went down still remains at that address unspent.

It's kinda uncool to start a rumor like this without some real evidence.

DPRs post he'll give us update tomorrow sometime so not really sure it's coming up tonight....Geez....After waiting 2 weeks for Dwolla to verify me, then another fucking month for god daaaamn mt.gox, Finally made a purchase and now the damn SR site is down and vendor probably doesn't have my address since it went down like a day after he posted it in transit. Since it still hasn't arrived, I am assuming the guy marked it as "In Transit" started packing it later in the day to ship it and tried to log in to get my address at which point, it was down.

A massive block of well-written and delightfully crass text.

You hit on pretty much everything that's important here, and made me lol a few times too. Well done! I was already enjoying the post but when you mentioned being in the Girl Scouts, I immediately started reading your post with Cindy McPhearson's voice from The Boondocks. She's a gangster girl scout that teams up with Riley to sell fundraiser candy and keep the profits, voiced by the legendary Tara Strong.

Sidenote: IHN and many accounts from the past few days are just bored/asshole trolls passing the time through their withdrawls. He doesn't get a reply despite directly quoting me.

Yeah I was gonna interject, but its pointless trying to convince people here lol.

I ALONE have 1675BTC in limbo there .. and I am not even that large of a vendor. All the MOM, NL MDMA, Coke guys etc ... There is likely in the neighborhood of 100000BTC on the site, not 12000 lol

Yeah, I know it's useless too, but I was bored and felt like raising my post count anyway, lol. Idiots are historically the loudest complainers so maybe it clicked for some of the smart, quiet lurkers.

Oh yeah, easily several hundreds of thousands of BTC going in and out every month. I'm guessing that 12,000 might be the starting of the tumbler, as we users generally have no idea how that works.

In "ihateNiggers'" book, I'm would clearly be called a nigger, but they didn't know that when they came up with "ihateNiggers" and "ihateNiggers2," so what gives?   

Either way, I suspect "ihateNiggers" is a troll.   The fact that so many people on this forum have ignore them is a testament to the fact that there's hope for the human race after all.

Doesn't SR have a built in tumbler? Could that account for your "missing" coins?

Has nobody ever bothered to look at their SR address in the block chain? Yeah, within hours of transferring coins to it, they get moved into the tumbler. Meanwhile, your account is credited with whatever you transferred to it -- which is in a separate database -- while in the block chain your SR address has a final balance of 0.


Okay, bitinstant shows *everything* as zero, so that's not really a great way to tell all the time

Yo NCK! Nice to see you kicking here in the forums. If you're around and read this, I was wondering if you'd be comfortable saying how much you gross in sales for an average week? It's fine if you don't want to, but I'm betting you're grossing somewhere in the range of $5000-10k a week. Just bored and crunching numbers in a previous post. :]


Pretty close to $000 this week!

It is a freedom to put in your body what you choose, one step closer to defeating this insane war on drugs, which has cost more lives than it has saved and has cost the taxpayers in the United States a shit-ton of money by filling up our jails with low-level drug dealers or just users, creating ex-cons who don't have a chance to reintegrate into society when they get out of jail because of the ex-con stigma, essentially ruining their lives. 50 years from now, we'll look at this the same way we look at the freedom of speech, and wonder how crazy it was when the governments would put people!e in jail for smoking weed or sniffing a few lines of coke, or selling a couple ounces of pot.

Totally agree on that. Here in the Netherlands you can roll and smoke a ten inch joint at a public place in front of a police officer - me and my friends seriously done that multiple times back in the days when we where kids. Don't get me wrong I'm not an advocate for kids using drugs! In the coffeshops here you definitely heard about they are really strict in not selling to kids under eighteen. But there's no way of stopping kids from getting there dope that's impossible in my opinion.. The only thing we can do about that is through prevention campaigns witch could be paid out of tax profits from drug sales if we would actually regulate drugs..

At a big dance party in case someone is careless and one holds xtc pills in his pocked instead of his boxer shorts and the security finds it you have to hand them in and they just let you join the party (in most cases). If you hold more than ten pills they consider you as a dealer and its possible that they make a case / process verbal of it witch could eventually result in a money penalty or at worst a work punishment. This means you have to clean the streets, washing dishes in a nursing home or guide traffic on a big event or something. Correct me if I'm wrong but that 'work punishment' is something that not exists in the States isn't it? If you are sentenced in this way (witch happened to me actually) you're not suffering much stigma here and you're still able to go to collage and acquire a proper job. We don't put people in jail and fucking there life's up for.. nothing. There are many test centers here where you can have your drugs tested so there's less contaminated drugs in circulation and if there is the institute that monitors the marked here send out warnings. If we look at the facts there are less hard drug users here, less problematic drug users and less drug related deaths.....

Think and hope SR will be back soon.. I also lost quite a bit of money if it isn't but it isn't the end of the world if DPR or LE fucked us. Soon there will be better alternatives than the BMR don't ya think?

you're the one who brought it up. and your argument doesn't make sense while you're also using tor.
would you like to take this to clearnet?

You're the one using a term as part of your username that you know is offensive while at the same time using it with a browser that obscures your identity and you have the nerve to challenge me?

You don't have the courage to take this to the clearnet.  My experience of surfing the internet after 15 long years have proven that to me.   Let me give you a hint, asswipe.   I've been called a nigger on the clearnet and dealt with it.  You are hiding and you know it.   This is the one area where the clearnet has the advantage.   The clearnet doesn't just log possible illegal activity, but it logs offensive comments, too.   I would argue that it logs the offensive comments a lot better than the illegal activity.  This is the one area where the Silk Road (or even BMR) has over you.   They know when to go on the "down low"  when it really counts.  You can't seem to keep your fucking mouth shut either way!   

That fact that you hate me gives me strength, asswipe.    So, suck on that!   I take your hatred and flip it against you and shove it up your ass!!!!   I don't mind getting fucked up the ass (when I want it), but I'm sure you do (under any circumstance)!

As for those who are genuinely lacking during this latest SR downtime, I sympathize.   But, to asswipes complaining without providing not much else, my patience runs thin (especially with idiots like "iHateNiggers"). 

I salute all of the legitimate vendors on SR and I definitely salute DPR.   But, to you who claim to be a brave soul using the word, "nigger," I laugh in your fucking, pathetic face.    Despite whatever delusions you use to comfort yourself, I deeply and instinctively know that you are ultimately a COWARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Look, you will never find me on a street corner, ASSHOLE!!!   That's the fucking point!   This is why I use SR and other contacts.  If I can't get my supply through safe means, I go without.   Fuck you!!!   

You don't have the courage to slit my throat if you met me in person, asswipe.   And honestly, you know that if you were to use the word, 'nigger' on the clearnet, your ass would be gone or banned.   SO....FUCK YOU!!!!!   You are a fucking coward of the worst kind!!!!

I'm surprised no one has brought up a great reason why the 12,000 BTC (about $120,000USD) thing is bunk. It's very simple- That's a laughably small number of BTC compared to the commission made off the whole site's transactions in just one month.

Even JUST using the USA domestic cannabis category for some simple calculations.... I estimate the top vendors move about $2000-5000 of product in a given week based on feedback frequency and checking the item descriptions for those feedback. NCK, Rook, Tweetb and many others crush $2000 a week bare minimum.. So that's an easy $10,000 a week for 5 top vendors, $40,000 in a month. There's dozens more active vendors in just Cannabis alone, I would say even $200,000 from all domestic cannabis vendors in a month is a very VERY low number. Commission is somewhere in between 6-10%, and 10% off that $200k is $20,000 in a month for commission.

Then factor in that there's dozens of drug/other categories and vendors all over the world, custom and private listings, and people that don't leave feedback... that $20,000 from cannabis seems very small. Taking 12k BTC lump sum against a constant and cumulative commission rate like that is just financially retarded.

edit- 120k to 12k BTC in the last line.

EVEN IF YOU ARE ONLY 50% CORRECT, AND THEIR INCOME FROM SR IS ONLY $10,000 per month.....THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR WEEKS OF A FUCKED UP SITE!!!!  IF YOU HAVE CASH LIKE THAT, THIS SHIT SHOULD BE FIXED IN A DAY!!!  AND DON"T GIVE ME ANY OF THAT "ITS SO COMPLICATED" BULLSHIT.......SILK ROAD IS A TINY, BABY, PUSSY LITTLE WEBSITE IN INTERNET-LAND.....THESE FUCKERS ARE IDIOTS IF THEY HAVEN"T GOT THE SITE UP YET.......AND........IF IT EVER DOES COME BACK UP< IT BETTER BE LIGHTNING FUCKING FAST AND SUCKING OUR DICKS !    I AM STILL TIRED OF THIS BULLSHIT!!!!

I don't think I'm anyone special, just an average small-time cannabis buyer who happens to be a customer of his. My place has been known since I've been here. It was not to find out profit made, but gross coins earned in an average week. That's all.

You can check out the block chain.  All transactions are public.  You don't need the site to see what account is losing or gaining coins.  All you need is the deposit address and you can look it up in the block chain.

BTW, i'm not condoning this theory about missing coins in any way.  Since the coin tumblr as others have already stated brings your balance to 0 and your account is credited coins.

I doubt Limetless will be replying to me after dishing out his verbal assault, which is fine. I consider it an important milestone in any SR users' voyage to get chewed out by Lim, he doesn't just go after any asshole troll on here. I feel special now. <3

But, I'm guessing that you also found it disrespectful to ask a vendor for a ballpark estimate on weekly sales, which is fine. I don't deny that it can be considered rude, but the context of my question has been left out. I made a hypothetical situation a few pages back to give people a scope on the ridiculous amount of commission SR makes to de-bunk the '12k btc is gone omg dpr is stealing from us' theory. I just was looking for an estimate to see if my numbers were close. Doesn't really matter either way, really; I still stand by my modest estimates in that post.

Hello Everyone! 

As a Vendor here who is hopeful all things return bigger and better, we must say we understand why certain members here are angry.
We believe the fearless leader DPR, whether that be a real person, or a group of people, are doing everyone a huge disservice with their
obviously vague "updates" that say nothing other than "working on it"......   
As a vendor, we have not been able to effectively use SR for almost 2 weeks.....it has been down completely for more than 5 days.....
it has severely hampered our plans, our income, and our future prospects.
While we hope this issue will be resolved soon,   we must implore those in control,  please provide us with  CONCRETE info as to WHATS wrong,
and WHEN SR will be up.    There is really NO REASON that can't be done, and your refusal to do so is what's causing everyone to be spooked. 
In the time that has passed already, a whole new SilkRoad could have been programmed and implemented!    What are you doing????
If they truly are legit, and no shenanigans are taking place, there is no reason this site is still down.
While we appreciate the opportunity to even be here, this is getting over the top ridiculous by now.

You can guesstimate based on prices and the product rotation how much money someone actually makes here. There's no need to ask. It was already stated earlier that for marijuana alone, monthly income is estimated around 100 or 200k or so.

I don't know if you're a vendor or not, but if you are, would you feel comfortable talking about your earnings? I sure wouldn't.

If they truly are legit, and no shenanigans are taking place, there is no reason this site is still down.
While we appreciate the opportunity to even be here, this is getting over the top ridiculous by now.

Not one person that I've seen make a claim like this seems to have a shred of experience in software or web development.

I doubt Limetless will be replying to me after dishing out his verbal assault, which is fine. I consider it an important milestone in any SR users' voyage to get chewed out by Lim, he doesn't just go after any asshole troll on here. I feel special now. <3

But, I'm guessing that you also found it disrespectful to ask a vendor for a ballpark estimate on weekly sales, which is fine. I don't deny that it can be considered rude, but the context of my question has been left out. I made a hypothetical situation a few pages back to give people a scope on the ridiculous amount of commission SR makes to de-bunk the '12k btc is gone omg dpr is stealing from us' theory. I just was looking for an estimate to see if my numbers were close. Doesn't really matter either way, really; I still stand by my modest estimates in that post. NCK also replied with basically "$0 this week" to which I essentially said "lol that's a good answer" Don't worry guys, he can handle himself here!

I don't think it's anyone's business to have any idea how much money someone makes, be it on SR or in real life.

I don't know if you're a vendor or not, but if you are, would you feel comfortable talking about your earnings? I sure wouldn't.

Yes, you're right, no one has the right to know how much a vendor makes. That's not what I asked, though. I politely asked if he would be comfortable giving an estimate, to see how close my estimates were. I used those exact criteria to make my estimations, which is also my post that you're referring to. People are missing the connection of the context beforehand and think I am blindly asking how much NCK profits. Which is completely fine given how much of a clusterfuck this thread is.

I believe a fellow vendor asking that question would be more out of line, but I've had dozens of people ask how much I make on eBay, mostly in disbelief that my entire income comes from there. Rude, yes,but I didn't have to answer. Neither did NCK.

all these words of people griping and whining don't really matter. if this shit works for you - vendor or buyer - you keep on. all in. you can't build up some model SR in your head where everything works great, build your business model off that, and plod forward on the assumption that your imaginary SR will do exactly as you wish. there are unknowns. the unknowns over the course of a year have been, believe it or not, somewhat consistent. it's not all butter, there are some hairs in the food too. take that shit and add it to your conception of reality, and then base your plans and decisions off of it, all the while knowing that any fucking minute could throw you a new monkey wrench. if you try and model your imaginary universe off of this or that sliver of time and experience your imagination will fill in the void and take you places you never wanted to go. stick to the facts, stick to reality, quit making assumptions, and take it or leave it.

Title: Fixing Software Takes Time
Post by: jarrod on November 14, 2012, 05:08 am
I also have a 15+ years of software development, and agree that sometimes it takes far longer than you think to get software problems fixed. Especially when you're dealing with things like sudden, large, increases in user volume. Add on top of that the fact that your site needs to be iron-tight and completely anonymous, and it may take a while to fix problems. On normal websites if you mess up you get fired. Here if you mess up on security you get life in prison. So you have to be careful, and people should respect that!

What gets me nervous is when the site is down this long they may be having other problems like data loss. Maybe they lost account data (ie. your bitcoins) or other transactional data. I really hope they didn't considering I have 40+ bc attached to my account at the moment....

Could be, and even if I don't want to spread FUD, a good way to cashout is to keep people waiting for the site to return in order to prevent btc prices plummeting that would follow a simple "SR has vanished" situation.

It is fairly easy to see what is happening. DPR decided, some time ago, that he made enough money (which he certainly has). So why take the risk of operating the site? Of course, he couldn't just shut down the Road because BTC prices would fall and LE would be tracking his endeavors of cashing out. Instead, he faked a "server crash" and "maintenance mode" so he could cash out the BTC in relaxation (just look at the huge movements of BTC documented in this thread). This process takes several days, if not weeks, and that is the cause why the Road is still in maintenance mode. You'll see that when DPR is finished getting his cash, SR and the forums will simply cease to exist.

although, if you are going to make a SR copy. why not make an improved version.

better Feed back system. more features. ect.

not just a carbon copy with differnet skin.

yeah i was on my account for 5 mins and it said 0. but when i refreshed it says 404 now .

we need a tax break, how can DPR tax us, and we still pay full price. that not right, what happened to our money we payed to be vendors. or our tax money. loks like it been put to good use with a 7 day offline mode//

Some people just don't belong in the game

BMR isn't quite a SR copy, just of the same role of business. As expected they look alike.
I was remembering when I first saw backopy, was at bitcointalk, back on the early days of SR. He was selling some cracked games or shit like that, when the shit hit the fan at SR with the gawker article and, like now, it went down for quite sometime. I recall this guy, unknown to the community up to so far, just much later he said to be the TD creator as well, to say something like "I'll see what I can do" and overnight he came up with BM (at the time wasn't Reloaded). It surely missed many SR features, was miles away of a carbon copy, more like eBay, you could purchase now and pay after, I may say a total fiasco. With time however it came to be more close to SR business model and v3 was a major improvement.

Silk road gets an estimated $6,000 per day in commission - and vendors has to put up with this? I would understand it better if there would have been information regarding this a head of time, information, whats up,SOME INFORMATION NOT DETAILED INFORMATION THAT CAN BE MISUSED U TW'** etc. This is clearly not a normal 1-hour maintenance session - this may have been posted on the forum but how many % of SR users actually go there every day to get the latest information when it is easy to post on on SR the same way they do with 420.

Nevertheless, I'm looking forward to the new site and my fingers r crossed.

All the best,

Post by: iamonion on November 14, 2012, 06:59 am
Holy fuck you are seriously lack an understanding of what the feds like to call op-sec.  That stands for operation security.  You CAN NOT and DO NOT EVER display/post/give out information that will give the enemy ideas of what your current plan of attack is.  That means, no updates on why the server is down, no updates on what specifically is being done, no spot on ETA for the server to be up, etc.  You cannot maintain operational security by giving the enemy information of your current whereabouts.  Holy fucking beejesus this is op-sec 101.

Considering how fucking ignorant so many people are to the ideas of security DESPITE USING A WEBSITE THAT ALLOWS THEM TO PURCHASE DRUGS ONLINE... I truly wonder... If SR does get popped how many of you fucking idiots are going down with it for complete and utter failure to understand basic security measures?  I bet 95% of the users here participate in near zero security measures.  I also bet that using even 25% of available security features would be enough to prevent the feds from doing any more than an initial questioning especially if one was to ask for a lawyer and answer nothing... but considering you're all fucking retarded when it comes to security measures... I hope you have fun being pounded by leeroy.

BTW, I just checked the blockchain and my coin hasn't moved.

I haven't been using this site for long but I love it for what it stands for. To an extent, true freedom in an un-free world (democracy, yeah right). I hope this problem gets resolved and the damage done is repaired. If this does turn out to be a great big rip off, a site of this type and scale will probably never be trusted ever again. The damage done to the trust of users will be too great for any other site to operate the same in the near future. Un-fortunately large amounts of coin are being held ransom at the moment and each day is damaging users trust more and more. Whether or not the site is trusted IF it comes back online will really depend on how the admins handle things once its running. Lets hope this is sorted soon.

You probably should delete that block chain info.  Although everyone can see the block chain info... it probably isn't in your best bet to disclose the source of your coin if it wasn't properly tumbled prior to adding it in your SR wallet.

Also, your coin went into the tumbler.

back up, and for those who cant read previous posts, only vendors can login now, everyone else will be able to in a few hours....now that everyone can unwad their panties... i found this and it made me chuckle. "conspiracy theorists" would love it.

"A pirate of near-mythical reputation, The Dread Pirate Roberts is feared across the seven seas for his ruthlessness and swordfighting prowess, and is well known for taking no prisoners.
It is revealed during the course of the story that Roberts is not one man, but a series of individuals who periodically pass the name and reputation to a chosen successor. Everyone except the successor and the former Roberts is then released at a convenient port, and a new crew is hired. The former Roberts stays aboard as first mate, referring to his successor as "Captain Roberts", and thereby establishing the new Roberts' persona. After the crew is convinced, the former Roberts leaves the ship and retires on his earnings."

Cannot believe the stressed out people on this thread.  If you read this latest msg, it explains ONLY vendors will be able to access the SR for the first phase of the re-launch, to allow them to catch up.  Encouraging to see the login screen back up though!

I transferred some coins to my SR wallet right before it went down, so as eager as anyone to get back in and place my order.

It's pretty stellar to have watched the combination of anger, confusion, and paranoia build up over the past 5 days and 66 pages, followed by the collective catharsis that is currently taking place. I felt like I was part of a community despite never interacting. There are some ugly (on the inside) motherfuckers around here, but some rational personalities too. Stoked for SR, hope it's bigger, badder, and more secure. All great social movements face great turmoil time and time again, and it appears DPR rises to the occasion consistently.

Beaner + Sprout, I would halt on any BTC movement until you can actually log into the site. - I'm just as eager. - Also if you go to page 1 (Original Post), which kept getting updated, you will see there he states that any auto-finalize, auto-vacation (due to inactivity I presume), and the like "clocks" I believe he referred to them as, have been stopped. So it will be a gradual restore. -

I'm just as eager as you are Beaner.

We can all breath a collective sigh of relief.

You'd also be a fool if you did not have thought there was at least a 1% chance of LE being involved or of some other skulduggery afoot!  - Then again, paranoia is relative to an individuals experiences, or lack thereof. 

I just hope there is at least something in the mail today ! !  5:30am Wed where I am. - Oooh shit~! Gotta put the garbage pails down to the street! - Gotta kill time anyway! - Get the kid off to school, etc.

Thanks to the whole SR team for getting this back up and running fairy quickly,  I've only been a user a short while but my couple of orders I've done (painlessly) have made the site invaluable to me since I moved away from all my irl contacts.  Also thanks to everyone who contributed to this thread (even the haters) it has really kept me entertained over the last few days.

Right I'm off to get some BTC in eager anticipation of being able to purchase some greenery.   ; 8)

hi :) pretty new here so please dont bite me. i had been looking forward to when it was up gain

i guess as with most new members you may think its a troll or spammer or some like it,  till you see the person and their behavior and such, that is fair enough to
i have read the front page and see that its closed for new members to reg.

i didnt seem to fully see  if you would be closed permanent for new members like myself or if it was till everything was up and running again and things are sorted out?

:thumbs up:  great job to get up and running again it must have been really hard work and many hours to.

Being in this Thread over the last few days has been an interesting experience to say the least.
But I don’t think it’s as black an white as everyone makes it out to be, obviously cunts like TiredOf… are just straight up wankers… but on that same note I don’t think we can all say ‘Fuck The Haters, Long Live The Road’ etc.
Of course I will be extremely happy if/when I can log back on to buy goods.
But common sense is needed, let’s not forget this is a ‘underground’ website and anything is possible – and lessons of practice should be learned. I’m not trying to be negative, just saying anything is possible here… and if the shit did hit the fan don’t go crying to mommy.

Unfortunately most of those accounts were made after SR went down, so pathetic they didn't even have the balls to tell their opinions, even behind TORs anonymity.
None of them will leave I m sure about that. That's how they make money . They ll keep on "licking DPR's ass" more than anyone they accused of doing that that in this thread.

Hey all.  So I have been an SR member for over 8 months now. I don't really post that often on the forums but since SR went down I have been following this thread.  First I am so happy to see that black login page (even if I can't get on right now) however I am wondering if anyone is nervous about doing business on SR since its been down so long.  I know people with legal online businesses and if their server was down a 1/2 a day that is too long.  I am not trying to start any conspiracy theory here but I am just wondering if we are walking into a trap and instead of receiving a package, I am getting a knock on the door from LE.  Again, I am not trying to start anything, I am just wondering if anyone out there is a little nervous?

yeah i think everyone is a bit nervous, but i think everything will return to normal. but it doesnt not help to be cautious.
im just stoked the actual server is back up, at least functioning for the vendors. i truely never doubted dpr, but i must say this is the longest extended period of downtown for maintenance that ive experienced in 1. 4 years. i consider it something minor, in concerns with the once possible notion that sr might have never come back up. 
Title: Re: update

LOL, I'm not even worried about my coins being there, I have little doubt about that.  I just wanna get on to get a tracking number for a package that should have been here by now.  I was gonna log in to save the number right when the site went down.  talk about bad timing!


@rfs78;  I feel like there are just too many of us to get us one by one like that.  I may be slightly concerned as a vendor, but even then, there will be no new info that wasn't on the site before.  no worries.
