After suggesting earlier this week that a link existed between the creators of Silk Road and Bitcoin, two Israeli computer researchers have retracted their report.

oh, how cute

what a couple douchebags

This is not some pseudoeconomic post-modern Libertarian cult, it's an un-led, crowd-sourced mega startup organized around mutual self-interest where problems, whether of the theoretical or purely practical variety, are treated as temporary and, ultimately, solvable.
Censorship of e-gold was easy. Censorship of Bitcoin will be… entertaining.

At least they still have dignity left to retract their reports.

Many others that made ridiculous statement just varnished..... and hope the masses to forget them.

This may be very bullish.  Possibly pressure was applied or simply information(correct or incorrect) given by government sources to stop linking bitcoin to drug activity.
