Watching the video first is recommended.

Information wants to be free...

This is a thread dedicated to the recent policy censoring links to webservices regarding access to restricted substances and other "quasi-legal/illegal" products/information. While I agree that discussion and trading must be kept off site due to legal issues it would represent in the USA where the server is hosted, I do feel a link/reference to other sites which do not present this issue should be welcomed and encourage. For which we are practicing one of the worst censorship, for which it is self-censorship what we see. The sole mention of such a service, the discussion or criticism, or even the organization of such a service as of what Black Market [Reloaded] and The Silk Road represent is not illegal or unethical in itself. Should we not actually remove this restriction we would end worst than South Park 201(Season 14, Episode 6)[http://www.tu.tv/videos/south-park-14x06-201-vose-serieteka-com-]

So basically, please leave a signature for the petition to:
-Abolish censorship of links to quasi-legal services(Black Market [Reloaded]/The Silk Road)
-Having a clear list of known sites to avoid misleading links and Man in The Middle attacks

The name sounds like something cartoon Dracula would say.

On topic : I'm not a fan of filters, but if it causes too much drama allowing certain links, I'd rather see the links go than the forums. Neutral in this case.

Help Bitcoins by buying clothes, technology, books, etc. through people/stores that accept BTC. This will increase overall value of BTC as well as mitigate unnecessary bank transaction fees.

Well, it is actually the title of the first video which I suggest along the video of "You are a Terrorist" of the same author.( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdIA0jeW-24 )

I haven't really given my opinion on this issue before (I think).

I strongly disagreed with the decision to remove the Silk Road thread and a couple of other smaller related threads. I believe that Bitcoin cannot succeed without buy-in (pun intended) from people who trade in things which are illegal but have no business being illegal. Drugs are a prime example of such a thing. That said, I understand the position the forum administrators have taken and why they took it. There are scary gunmen out there, after all, and nobody wants to get shot or thrown in a cage.

I think the best response would have been to move the forum out of the United States.
