The name of the marketplace that will arise from this forum has not yet been officially announced, so one can only assume that Silk Road Reloaded is a separate venture.

Also, SR2.0 is a failed project that no longer exists.

So it would seem you have Black Flag, {this marketplace} and Silk Road Reloaded.

I didn't realize all these supporters were just being kinky.

Should we move this thread to the BDSM sub-forum?

Hello Mary

I don't know enough to tell you whether they were attempting to scam multiple users or not, but any black market forum that's hosted on the clearnet should probably be avoided.

+1 Thanks V, scam I suspect!

Yama Das,

Is it too packaged for you to insert a slip with a printed message, stating that you sent the packages after the site vanished?

That way, if you don't get your coins, they will at least know you did them an incredibly good turn and will sing your praises in future marketplaces.


Silk Road discussion, by its very definition, is the discussion of issues, topics and activities related to Silk I right?

This is correct, however it's probably worth noting that discussion of Ross Ulbricht has its own sub-forum (Ross Ulbricht Theories) - could this explain perhaps where some of the threads have been moved to?

I get the distinct feeling the New DPR is slightly  irritated by the loyalty shown to Ross. Maybe it's not in his interest's  for a not guilty verdict  Just sayin.

I understand the logic behind this theory, but it is not the impression I get.

I believe the new DPR has a genuine desire to simply rebuild what we lost.

I can only imagine the trash the lawyer is going to have to sift through, from 'anonymous' informants such as HH/Coachella/GG. Afterall, GG said he has forwarded this information to the lawyer and Ross' family.

I can only imagine how the media would portray this, given their fairly dire representation of the situation already:

'The court today used evidence presented by an anonymous alias known only as 'Coachella' - a deeply respected and high-ranking member of the assassination website Silk Road'


When did the media get so sloppy?

Thanks for the warning our Silk Road compatriots from across the pond, Weed Dude.

3 days is short enough to wait out - vendors, it's probably not a delay long enough to warrant using a private courier, so just hang fire when it comes along.

This is the guy who scammed a number of SR buyers out of their coin last year. He's a fucking idiot of the highest order.

Hello Gary

I think we have some wires crossed here. I did not use the alias of V before Silk Road was closed down, so I'm afraid you must be thinking of somebody else. Thanks for looking out for the community though.

If V were a scammer, he couldn't be a idiot because he's one of the mods on this forum and has the backing of some very respected members from the old forum, so he's fooled them too.

Unless they're all scammers or LE and we're all fucked.

Pretty strong allegations there gary strawberry!
I'm fairly certain that V does not have mod status; however you are correct that he is very well-respected.


You're absolutely right; this alias is not blessed with the status of moderator. I am however pro-actively involving myself wherever I can to help restore both the community and the marketplace to its former glory. At least during this incredibly busy 'scramble' period, the mod team will certainly be feeling the heat - and I firmly believe my work here helps lighten their load, even if it has not been publicly endorsed with a Mod tag.

Thanks to both yourself and to Serendipity for your kind words and support.

I like V.

And the OP is pretty cool too ;-)

We are one and the same.

But you trust iced cream, surely?


There's a difference between free speech and incessant trolling.

The line is fine, but there's a difference.

While I do not agree with the language used in the thread you referenced, the user who created it is entitled to that belief. Of course, other users are entitled to vocalize the belief that he or she is a lonely fool (though I wouldn't recommend this course of action, simply because it serves as encouragement).

What we have here however, is a case of the very same person creating several new accounts in an attempt to disrupt the community and promote unhealthy fear. Which, again, is a person's right to free speech - but by doing the very same from multiple handles and on multiple threads, it's in the best interest of the community as a whole to have this kind of input moderated.

I do not agree in the slightest with heavy-handed moderation, and this belief often leads me to view content I do not wish to view.

But malicious trolling the intent of which is to bring a community into fear and disrepair is an issue that possibly needs a little attention.

This is not me saying I would have necessarily taken Sarge's course of action with the threads in question, but I'm also not condemning such choice. It's a grey area.

Peaceful movements have always had greater success in the long term. (Black civil right movment, anyone?)

A really good point here.  I'd +1 you if I could ma'am.

The human race should strive for peace in all things and all aspects of life.  Both internally and externally.  Peace and patience are much harder behaviors to maintain then violence but are many times more effective.

This is what everybody who wants this marketplace and community to survive needs to remember.

Alfred and DefyCode are both absolutely right and wise with their words.

Alfred, I've given her +1 on your behalf.



If you say it enough he gets bored and admits it and makes a new account and comes back in three weeks.

Silk Road Discussion / Re: What Does Silk Road Mean to You?

The Silk Road, or Silk Route, is a series of trade and cultural transmission routes that were central to cultural interaction through regions of the Asian continent connecting the West and East by linking traders, merchants, pilgrims, monks, soldiers, nomads and urban dwellers from China to the Mediterranean Sea during various periods of time.

Extending 4,000 miles (6,437 kilometres), the Silk Road gets its name from the lucrative Chinese silk trade which was carried out along its length, and began during the Han Dynasty (206 BC – 220 AD). The central Asian sections of the trade routes were expanded around 114 BC by the Han dynasty, largely through the missions and explorations of Zhang Qian, but earlier trade routes across the continents already existed.

Trade on the Silk Road was a significant factor in the development of the civilizations of China, the Indian subcontinent, Persia, Europe and Arabia. Though silk was certainly the major trade item from China, many other goods were traded, and various technologies, religions and philosophies, as well as the bubonic plague (the "Black Death"), also traveled along the Silk Routes.

The main traders during Antiquity were the Indian and Bactrian traders, then from the 5th to the 8th century the Sogdian traders, then afterward the Arab and Persian traders.

THAT is what the Silk Road means to me, it was aptly named and still is.

Ah I was waiting for that answer.

I should perhaps have edited the OP to state 'Silk Road Anonymous Marketplace', but I suppose it _will_ mean this for some, and so it is nice to find out :)
