Once a year, I treat myself to a Gurkha His Majesty's Reserve.

This is generally on either my Birthday, or at Thanksgiving. Never both.


Silk Road Discussion / Lessons We can Learn from Project Black Flag
« on: October 30, 2013, 01:32:41 pm »
2 days ago, Metta Dread Pirate Roberts announced that Project Black Flag was closing, and that he was taking the funds.

To most, this may have arrived as a shock. To some, this may not have caused surprise. To all however, this will have shaken the community’s faith in the Onion Black Market Culture.

To those who have lost funds, I hope you manage to recover quickly – we’ve all taken a serious beating this last month. October has not been good for our community.

But let me make this very clear: November will see a new dawn arise, when Silk Road re-launches. Does this mean you can trust Silk Road blindly? No – of course not. In my own opinion, Silk Road is the most reliable of all the marketplaces, and the staff have put thousands of hours and hard work into making it as smooth and secure as possible. But while you wait for this ship to set sail, why not read through these words of advice, written as a result of Project Black Flag’s recent closure:

1.   Never trust blindly, no matter how convincing something seems.
Silk Road might be run by the original staff, and it might be the most popular up-and-coming option. But you should never trust anything blindly – the only things that are guaranteed in life are death and taxes.

2.   Only ever play with money you can afford to lose.
When keeping money in escrow, paying vendor bonds, paying for goods… always, always remember to only ‘front’ money you can lose to afford. If you have $1,000 to your name, and you need $600 of that to live off, don’t ever keep more than $400 in escrow, spend more than $400 on an order, or pay it as a vendor’s bond anywhere – assume that the $400 you’re ‘playing’ with will be compromised. This is the only way to prevent financial disaster.

3.   Always use PGP
The deception we have seen proves that there are individuals willing to abuse our trust. In the case of Project Black Flag, this deception was the thieving of your funds. But it could have just as easily been unencrypted addresses, identifying information or more that was exposed and abused in order to turn a quick profit.

There are many more lessons we can learn from Project Black Flag’s recent closure, but in my opinion, these are the most important.

Stay safe.

Hello Smythe Clarke

Whether or not the DPR replies to this thread, I'd like to answer your very last question by directing you here:


Anybody wanting to help the cause can subscribe to this thread and help make Silk Road a better place.

I'm a busy man.

But I hope, when the dust of my current ventures settle, that I'll be able to join you fine gentlemen on occasion for a tonic water, or, if I'm feeling particularly risque, a tall glass of absinthe.

fuck v and fuck his fucking vision too this marketplace aint bout no fucking community its bout the fucking drugs man. who do u think u are comin on here tellin us all to remember wat silk road is all about aint about nothing you say it is man fuck you your a fagot. you say all this about lets keep the community together and lets stay strong but your a fuckwit who probably dont even bothered about no drugs this is about drugs i repeat THIS IS ABOUT DRUGs

dont even get me started on all them fuckwits who follow him and say yeah v the man, we love v, we follow v to fucking narnia. V AINT THE MAN. HE AINT TAKIN YOU TO FUCKING NARNIA AND YOU SHUD STOP FOLLOWING HIS BAD BAD BAD ADVICE WHY ARE U ALL LISTENING TO THIS FUCKWIT!!!!!

I would simply like to inquire why you believe V to be untrustworthy.  But alas you are a troll and most likely do not have any coherent thoughts or arguments that you can backup with any real fact.  :-\


Many years ago, I came across a train of thought in the psychology industry that suggested there is a minority of individuals who perceive the combination of characteristics such as confidence, coherence and charisma, as a threat.

I believe that the outburst we've just seen is an individual who perhaps belongs to such a minority, who is letting off steam.

Or, perhaps I'm just giving 3-fold, capitally bad advice (pardon the subtle dig there FuckV, I rarely rise to any bait).

TheMadHatter: the time is not yet ripe for dissemination. Watch out for this thread changing title, as that will signify newly posted instructions (rather, guidelines - I am not, nor will I ever, instructing anybody to do anything. We are agents of our own free will).

Might I inquire as to why you feel there shouldn't be a community, and should only be a drug shop?

I am not against most of the drugs bought/sold on Silk Road. But I am passionately in favor of the community that surrounds it.

It's naive to say that Silk Road "aint about no fucking community".

The support you're all offering is overwhelming.

Thanks for showing what you're all made of, and for your patience.

Keep that spirit alive - we'll need it when the date is announced.


if that doesn't mean anything to you, look up V for Vendetta.

My ears are burning.

I can confirm 2 things:

1. I am not Vlad

2. I am V

I hope this clears things up a little

Make an appointment with your doctor: DrX

MY sister is an heroin addict .. how do i make her stop using these fucking opiates??

Some people quit opiates by themselves. Other need medical and/or psychological help. There are some drugs that make the process of detoxification easier or long-term treatments to avoid relapse. But quitting opiates or any other drug is always a personal decision. There is no way that you can make her quitting opiates. It does not mean that you can't help her.  She will not change until she feels opiate use is a problem for her. It is common that opiate addicts do not realize this, so, in a first step you can try to help her to realize of the real and particular problems that opiates have in her concrete case. Once she is conscious of this, changes will be much easier.

His advice is second to none.

after the busts i've been putting alot of time into researching opsec, i totally understand your concerns. maybe going around throwing up flyers and making a tonne of noise about such a delicate subject may be a silly move. however the communities i am involved with have already heard about, seen, and been travelers of the road at some point and are fully aware of the events that have transpired.
 One of the major side effects of these busts, and the closing of our dear market, has been mass outbreak of fear from not just users of the site, but people surrounding these communities and in-turn, bystanders of this whole ordeal.
My plans upon my return home are to spread the message that's prevailed on these forums; yes we've come upon hard times, but we as a community are still standing strong, STRONGER in fact, than ever before. more secure and wiser than ever before! I wish to spread the message to my peers and the communities that they are active in, that where me may have been dealt a critical blow to our morale, where fear and misinformation is a constant weight bearing down on our collective shoulders, we are still here! we are still strong and we are not letting anything stop us. the sails are rising and with the wind at our backs. we will victorious against our oppressive, outdated, greedy and downright ignorant governments.

Where the message will be fully-understood and properly appreciated, it should be delivered. Just remember to exercise caution in everything you do - your government may not have the right to dictate your actions, but they certainly have the desire to try.

Keep yourself safe. +1.

agreed, ever since the FH busts the pedo community has been stronger than ever by moving over to freenet, now we can enjoy our baby fuck videos in safety, no js exploits for us.

CP is never, nor will it ever be, what Silk Road is about. Silk Road is about empowering a community with the right to choose how they treat themselves, not enabling them to damage individuals - especially defenseless ones.

I'm afraid I do not feel the analogy used in your response was appropriate, neither do I feel is your username, given what this thread and this community stands for.

Although the enthusiastic attitude warms my spirit, I'm not sure physical printouts and flyers are the best idea.

Although we want to rebuild the community that they tried to destroy, it's important to remember that our agenda is not going to be fully-understood by the vast majority of the public - those with a more sheltered outlook, propagated by the various government-influenced media outlets.

By all means, those in the 'real world' who you know to be open minded, and who might wish to become a part of and contribute to this intellectual, free-thinking community - the members of which are empowered to acquire restricted substances should they so wish - should be told. But probably not by physical marketing collateral, and instead by careful word of mouth.

Of course, when the time comes to spread this message, one of the strongest themes will be that you should do as you see fit, after all,  I have as much right to control your actions as your government does (ie none).

But use caution my friends.

Yes, I also would like to offer my appreciation to Cornelius for his/her consistent patience in explaining the meaning of the term 'subbed'.

Happy to help in any way that I can Master V.  Also I've given you a long over due +1 karma now that I am able.

Appreciated, Alfred.

My karma would now be looking like yours, had one of them not fallen off the cliff.
