Bitcoins Are Back, at Least for Porn and Poker

 - http://www.tnr.com/blog/plank/105649/bitcoins-are-back-least-porn-and-poker

Quote
As the bitcoin makes its comeback, it may also provoke renewed attention from law enforcement as an illegal competitor to the U.S. dollar or as a vehicle for money laundering, especially if it continues to be used predominantly on the Internet’s fringes.

Right now there's probably a lot more use for black market transactions than computer hardware. Even if you have a problem with the black market, this doesn't reflect poorly on the currency....just points out that it's valuable and more useful than physical currency or credit cards.
