It's a ".onion" address.  You have to use and install something called Tor (http://www.torproject.org/) to get to it.

Once you've installed Tor and configured it correctly, go to this URL: *Link Removed* .  The URL won't work unless Tor is running and configured.

As an aside, Silk Road seems to be down at the moment... but it was up yesterday.  It seems to go up and down at odd times...

I have been on the Silk Road, haven't made a transaction there.  Configuring TOR is a bitch, and the site refuses access without TOR up & running properly on your machine.  After several hours, Firefox was the only browser I could get to actually load the page (Chrome and IE just would not get it up).  There is more info on the Silk Road here:

Silk Road is currently down; the website has this to say though:

Quote
So the server went down unexpectedly today. This was very unnerving because we thought it had somehow been seized or something terrible like that. Fortunately it was just some kind of glitch and we were able to reboot. Everything has been backed up and is totally current, but we are not going to turn the site back on for a couple of days while we work out a way to prevent such problems. We are terribly sorry for this inconvenience, but we want to provide the best service possible, and random outages just aren't going to cut it. We know it must be terribly frustrating, but we are taking the better-safe-than-sorry approach and we hope you understand.

Columbian Drug Lords love US Cash.  Maybe, just maybe they will go to Bitcoin.  Would be one hell of a market swing. LOL

Vidalia is a standalone package for using TOR with Firefox. Download, install, browse...though for true anonymity you probably need to tweak the out-of-the-box settings. Good enough for average use, but I wouldn't traffic with it.

This helped me with configuring TOR for Chrome: http://lifehacker.com/5614732/create-a-tor-button-in-chrome-for-on+demand-anonymous-browsing

i prefer https://www.torproject.org/download/download.html.en

download, unrar, click the special firefox startup exe. it is also 100% standalone, no installation needed. give it a minute to connect and you are now using tor for just that one special firefox browser. far easier to get setup i think.

The Silk Road is a global website where you can buy things that are illegal in your area. so if you live in china, you can get books your government considers illegal. its unfortunate but the buying process isn't bullet proof. considering the money the us government wastes on trying to stop drugs and imprison those on drug charges the whole nation could save billions if they stopped this 'war on drugs'. it would be great if such a website could take over all drug sales making the war on drugs impossible.

for those that are curious, i dont do drugs. i find the good and the bad to weigh out about evenly when considering whether or not they should be legal. but for now the money the nation could save by making them legal and taxing them is just nuts to ignore.
