What's the big deal with the sr?  The beauty of the Tor network is that you just download it, follow the instructions and get on with it?  Using it isn't rocket science, although the underlying engineering certainly is.

Good question Bricks, what IS the big deal with the Silk Road? You apparently seem to know the answer by the manner in which you phrase your question.

For the benefit of all, why don't you explain why I or anyone here ever want to download this and use it?  Wink

Well, Herr Garrison,
It represents an exercise in liberty.  Some people guard their privacy more highly than others, whilst others are drawn to the bohemian nature of the SR.  Given the Internet is not owned by any state, it is not for any of us to restrict access to such communications, unless it can be shown beyond reasonable doubt that such activity is detrimental to that state.
 
Far better that ten guilty men go free than a single innocent man is convicted.

That hasn't been government policy for quite a while.

I don't support that idea
Allowing 10 guilty men to go free is basically asking for any number of innocent men to lose their lives - You never now the probability that any one criminal - at least - out of the ten is either a serial murderer or a suicide bomber
Net loss = Not worth it

So you volunteer to go to jail or be executed for a crime you didn't commit so others can live in false security?  I doubt it.  Easy to say you don't support ensure the innocent aren't wrongly convicted as long as it isn't you.

Take responsibility for your own life and stop demanding the govt jail/kill innocent people so you can feel safe.  Anything less is pure cowardice.

"Herr" ...quite the stinging address that.  Undecided

TY, this was a bit better for an explanation.

Now, FWIW Bricks, I agree with you on all points concerned. I would not for a second ask any government to restrict this. The only thing I would question is the usefulness of this particular venue for myself and others with any shred of moral integrity if it provides only access to those goods and services it is allegedly notorious for.

Now if it were the central hub for trading of rare TY Beanie Baby collectibles and My Little Ponies, then you would definitely have my attention.

I will not let any sovereign power restrict my access to collectible plushie toys!
