    The feds have busted "Dread Pirate Roberts," a shadowy digital buccaneer who allegedly owns and operates an underground website for drug dealers and hackers.

    "22. During the course of this investigation, the FBI has located a number of computer servers, both in the United States and in multiple foreign countries, associated with the operation of Silk Road. In particular, the FBI has located in a certain foreign country the server used to host Silk Road's website (the "Silk Road web Server"). Pursuant to a Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty request, an image of the Silk Road Web Server was made on or about July 23, 2013, and produced thereafter to the FBI."

    Looks like they've had access to a copy of the Silk Road server since at least July 23.

    Reading it, I'm not sure they're aware that Dread Pirate Roberts isn't the same Dread Pirate Roberts that originally operated the site. I'm only partway through, though.

    Now that Silkroad is toast, I'm guessing the value of Bitcoins is going to drop by 95%.

    I just came back and finished reading it.

    What a fucking retard.

    1. Posts a code snippet from Silk Road on stackoverflow initially using his real name: Check
    2. Gets caught ordering fake IDs from Silk Road himself after asking a user on Silk Road about fake IDs, then tells the police that anyone could've ordered it from Silk Road: Check
    3. Used his Gmail address to ask for help after spamming ads for Silk Road on forums: Check

    If I remember right, in an interview, DPR said he wasn't the original DPR, though. So it's possible that, provided that wasn't a lie, DPR 2, the guy who has been running the site recently, is still safe and sound right now.

    It's a lie.
    Ross stole "I am not the original DPR" from the movie.

    Makes sense. I hadn't seen the movie and was expecting it to be a lie he told just to fuck with people and try to sort of cover his tracks, anyway.

    That's just wrong. Your development framework isn't bad, you're bad. The real moral is don't be a fucking idiot.

    I build mine with Common Lisp nowadays. C++ isn't exactly tuned for web applications, but you could surely do it in that as well if you so desired. I certainly won't, as I don't take a liking to C++.

    Does anyone really think it's a coincidence that the SR raid is simultaneous with Obamacare and the US Government shutdown?

    Now we start behaving like civilized folks, and we stop subverting the US federal treasury and drug enforcement policy.
