This is inaccurate. You use Tor. You enter the address. You enter your login and password. It's not some double hopscotch know the secret code game. As for me I would rather have people actually using bitcoin to buy regulated substances than using it to speculate with. Half this forum wants bitcoin to be a get rich quick scheme rather than a viable means of exchange.

A non regular computer hobbyist would find the steps you listed to be double hopscotch know the secret code game.

But for the sake of brevity, the way I phrased it was:  No one I know has used Silk Road.

With a side dish of hyperbole: "It's blatantly misleading to imply that ANYONE uses Bitcoin for such things." - that's like a substance abuser in denial Smiley It's obvious that at least a few people have done this, otherwise the whole thing wouldn't exist. Unless it's something like an HBGary false flag operation of course, but I doubt it (even if it is, this kind of thing is bound to happen sooner or later). 0.0000000001% would equal around 0.01 dollarcent total BTW (@15 USD/BTC).

Quote from: Bruce Wagner
The fact that people use it, is irrelevant to the fact that no one I know has ever told me they've used Silk Road.

Actually, it makes it irrelevant what you think about the number of people having used it, since if you have talked to many many people, then either many many people is much smaller than a significant enough sample, or it isn't but noone is admitting to having used Silk Road. This boils down to defending your earlier position, instead of validating it.

BTW, a good defense against Silk Road arguments would be to highlight that the majority of cash has traces of cocaine on it. Although I'm not sure they aren't working on that as we speak with Quantitative Easing..

We need a section of this forum entirely dedicated to Public Relations

There, we can discuss media articles about Bitcoin, identify where the biggest dangers and misconceptions lie, deconstruct these misconceptions and come up with some snappy rebuttals.

Count me in for that. I've done a lot of work in PR.

Hard currency, 95%. The Fed are enablers and should be ashamed.

I've gone ahead and setup some new tools to help with public relations.

1) A new sub-reddit devoted to the topic.

2) A #bitcoin-PR channel on freenode.

3) Requested the creation of a new forum here that would be devoted to media monitoring and public and media relations for the Bitcoin project. Please support this idea if you feel this is needed.
