Not exactly the best association to make to with bitcoins, but it's getting the currency's name out there in popular Australian media (online and print).

7-Jan-2012
http://www.news.com.au/national/party-drugs-popular-with-online-shoppers/story-e6frfkvr-1226239065881

"Once in, the website brazenly advertises cocaine, LSD, ecstasy and other illicit substances, which are purchased with virtual currency called "Bitcoins" and delivered to the buyer through Australia Post."

that's corny. So can the thousands of subtances we non drug users consume in our food and beverages every day..


articles like that make me sad though. It does, however, make me curious of just how big the SR economy is.

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

Its MDPV, not MPVD.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Methylenedioxypyrovalerone

Also this kind of thing is exactly like why drugs shouldn't be prohibited. People get drug tested for work, etc so instead of using the known compound, they are willing to try the new ones that haven't been tested by thousands of people beforehand. You aren't going to stop people who wanna get high from doing it, they will find a way.

new untested substances can be very dangerous and harmful to health...

and more importantly, harmful to Big Pharma's ability to make Big profits...
long existing and extensively tested substances, that anyone can grow
themselves etc., are also a danger in that regard. 

Please people don't do anything that your Government doesn't want you to do. 
They have shown time and time again how much they have your best interests
in mind.   

I am still waiting to hear from them on whether it is safe for me to use Bitcoin.   Huh

Not to mention it's complete and utter bullshit since vendors get reviews and couldn't possibly sell unless their stuff was of good quality.

articles like that make me sad though. It does, however, make me curious of just how big the SR economy is.

I checked the site a few days ago and they have loads of offers up but their forum was down so I couldn't check that. I'm also not a customer, just a nosy lurker.

My personality type: INTJ - please forgive my weaknesses (Not naturally in tune with others feelings; may be insensitive at times, tend to respond to conflict with logic and reason, tend to believe I'm always right)

Nah! They had it right: MPVD = Multichannel Video Programming Distribution. But it was for the wrong article. The same author was dissing porn on the internet. I assume he dipped into his private stash of MDPV prior to penning that article.

Seriously, Bitcoin was only mentioned once in the article. It's not like the author was trying to stick it up Bitcoin's ass. He just started what was fact, as I read it. Not to bad of an article, albeit a tad black eye for our favorite coin.
