The main reason I think this upgrade to SR will spark a rally is because it might get some news coverage. Also, more people joining SR = more people discovering Bitcoin.

Yup.. no publicity is bad publicity. Even without joining SR, more people should discover BTC because you can't discuss SR without at least mentioning BTC. And "if criminals trust it..."

The war on the users and sellers of certain politically-unpopular drugs is the real crime. The Silk Road helps people engage in voluntary exchanges without becoming victims of state violence. I call that a good thing.

I hope they make the URL more user friendly too with the upcoming facelift, so that even my grandma can find and use it.  Angry

Onion addresses are derived from the service's public key, so like bitcoin addresses, it's not easy to make a very readable address. SR already has a pretty long vanity address, and making an even longer one would be extremely time consuming (probably years or decades). Teach your grandmother about browser bookmarks instead.

Not only is the 'war on drugs' an outdated concept and horribly inefficient, I'd say the same about politics and government as well. I believe we are on a longer-term cycle of change that will redefine how we participate in our society. The internet was built to route around damage, and with several technologies overlapping and mutating, the way we live is going to radically change as well.

"Victimless crimes" aren't crimes.
Crime is defined by what's in the law books.

Following rules blindly without questioning their purpose and usefulness to the general public, is not a good idea IMO.
What if SEX would be declared illegal? Would you consider yourself a criminal for having it?

+1  If my grandma could get her smack on the street without having to worry about getting mugged, shot, arrested and treated like some scum piece of shit I'm happy with it.





And the 'war' on drugs is as much a component of pure profiteering as most of the others wars we are currently engaged in.  I'd much rather see even a fraction of the billions spent on the war on drugs used to ACTUALLY stop the cartels from shipping drugs, many of which are only able to get them in here with the help of our own fucking goverment. instead spent on programs that actually help people who need help to get off of drugs...

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

Of course I would, because I could be criminally punished for it. That's what crime means. It has nothing to do with right or wrong, and everything to do with what laws say you can't do. Some laws are unjust and it's understandable if people break them and don't feel bad about it, but that doesn't mean breaking them does not constitute a crime.

Don't you think that if the definitions of "wrong" and "criminal" don't coincide, those definitions should be changed?

you might find this interesting. the definition of the word "Justice" https://www.google.com/#hl=en&gs_nf=1&tok=QkytIlgCkfcx-qxYbDkQ-g&cp=11&gs_id=9a&xhr=t&q=justice+definition&pf=p&sclient=psy-ab&oq=justice+def&gs_l=&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.r_qf.,cf.osb&fp=aa499a16869e0be5&biw=1920&bih=955

It says nothing about laws or crime. It talks about being "just." and "the quality of being fair and reasonable."   Putting people in jail for voluntarily putting drugs in their own bodies is "unjust."  The Whole goal Judicial system is the pursuit of Justice.  So, "crimes" are something that is considered "unjust." Therefore if you think voluntarily ingesting substances is "unjust" then it is a "crime." IMO, voluntarily doing anything to yourself is not "unjust" as long as it is victimless.

Translation: "I believe that bitcoin needs more drug users to buy into bitcoin in order for the market price to go up. Let's promote illegal activity in bitcoin guys!"

I stand by my tripod statement.

Bitcoin needs 3 legs to stand on, Drugs, Sex and Gambling.

SR covers the 1st nicely but I wish it was not the only one that did so (all your eggs in one basket etc).
Sex is getting there, seeing more and more cam girls etc. I really hope this takes off - my current speel: Tired of your partner seeing (foot/gay/bi/ladyboy/scat)-fetish on your CC bill - USE BITCOINS !!!.
Gambling - while still small Id call what we currently have a success for the community size we have.


VHS won over BETA mainly because of porn, bitcoin will win its place as a currency because of Drugs, Sex and Gambling.
