Anonymous cards and irc drug "stores" were invented long before silkroad...
Gift cards are used for small transactions and they have high fees. They are not practical for something as ambitious as Silk Road. It's also suspicious if someone drops a briefcase full of cards at the customer service desk at Walmart every week.

Small transactions? Is $2000 small to you? High fees? Is FREE, high to you? http://www.amazon.com/gift-cards/b?ie=UTF8&node=2238192011

Bitcoin is already anonymous if you are very very careful. All I'm saying is that it shouldn't be so anonymous that any street thug can use it do their thing.

Which is it gonna be then ? Its anonymous - or it isn't. You can't be a little bit pregnant - even if you were "very very careful"
Yes you can be a "little bit pregnant" if you have a non-viable fetus. Don't use false dichotomies against a positivist. We have more shades of grey than than an E. L. James novel.

Yeah, because >2 internet drug dealers have time to be flying a government registered and inspected plane around.

You're getting into thou dost protesth too much territory with your support of prohibition, which only massively benefits drug dealers.
