    Don't buy from Silk Road. It's crawling with feds ever since Wired did a story on them last year.

    And no

    Too much of a hassle just to watch some CP and buy drugs, which I'm not gonna send to my house anyways.
    Not much use for me.

    Also, don't believe the hype.

    Tor is not failproof at protecting your identity. Neither are bitcoins.

    Not sure which came first, tbh. I'm sure they both have their own respective stories. Once it went public, FBI/DEA stuck to it like stink on shit.

    From my understanding they busted a few top sellers and honey-potted them.

    Useful for avoiding IP bans on websites, definitely. Avoiding consequence for actual crimes, not so much.

    Sure, I'll find em when I get home.

    Personally I just stick with VPNs, but that's mostly for ban-evasion since I'm not doing anything illegal other than music/movies.

    Selling yayo, h, acid, xtc, numerous designer drugs, and of course weed.

    The most surprising though were the weapon sales. Also, browsing their forums, you could find links to hitmen for hire.

    The funniest thing I saw was the "retail thief for hire" - if you pay him, he will steal whatever you want from any store.

    ...That's just stupid. The last time I checked, the point of shoplifting was to NOT pay for whatever it is you're stealing.

    The selling point was this: Get whatever you want, half price, with no risk of catching a theft charge. The guy claimed to be a professional retail thief, for whatever that's worth.

    Alright, here we go:

    Bitcoins:

    This is a very tl;dr analytical breakdown of how Bitcoin transactions can be identified.

    FBI basically saying they don't give a flying fuck about this so-called "anonymous currency"


    Tor Network:
    http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/...tack-reveals-bittorrent-users-on-tor-network/
    Story about how a laundry list of security breaches can identify Tor users, in this case used to identify torrent users. Also contains some information on how Tor is infested with malicious nodes and FBI honeypots.

    I'm not a network expert, but I do know enough of the fundamentals to understand that there is absolutely no sure-fire way to hide your identity 100%. If law enforcement is determined enough, they will find you. Thankfully, the only crimes that garnish that level of attention would be military hacking, something only a fool would participate in.

    In my opinion, chain-linking proxies off a personal botnet is the only way to make it so mind-numbingly difficult to track you down that nobody is going to put forth the effort. What this entails is having your own botnet, and bouncing your connection between 10 different computers before it finally reaches its destination. You're going to have an awfully slow connection, but law enforcement will have a bitch of a time getting a judge to sign off on warrants to subpena every computer you tunneled though. Even more so if the connections are hitting multiple countries, it could be impossible for them to get the level of cooperation needed in place.

    I know we have a few members here who are far more knowledgeable on this subject than I am, so if anything I said is incorrect, please chime in.

    I dunno, it just doesn't really sound worth it to me. Then again, I've never really had the urge to steal a high-end HDTV, so...

    I wouldn't trust them with any type of money, much less my allotted whore budget for the month.
