... yet another pirate thread.

This is not meant to debate anything, but to answer a simple question. Who here has direct knowledge to the identity of pirateat40?

If you looked him up on Google, it doesn't count.
If he sent you a photo ID and a passport, it doesn't count.

It only counts if you have met him in person. I know some members of the forum have. Who are they?

Thanks.

I've seen the thread, don't remember exactly who said what, and I thought it would be a good idea to concentrate the (short?) list of people here. If nobody answers then I'll go & review that thread again, if needed.

I had the exact same idea. It would explain the odd correlation of this address to both entities (pointed out by taint analysis):
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=94675.100

Also the fact, that pirate claimed on IRC to have moved the market on the 17th of July "for the first time" in which 70k BTC were sold, just before that (some minutes/hours before) 70k were withdrawn from that address, for the first time.

Now the similar names of both heads of the operation.

Things add up, he can now effectively mix bitcoins used for buying drugs with those invested into his BS&T or his Gigamining operation.

--> I have to post this in some dedicated thread, sorry to pollute yours ripper234!

If he is not the one running SR he could simply be running its mixer.

pirateat40 is not from silk road. That's for sure.

Also if that's him in the nike hat I'm now totally convinced he is running a ponzi. No man that is making 6 figures a month (based off interest paid out and his past claims of profitability) would ever dress that awful.

He was claiming to do large sales of 100K ++ USD/BTC. No one is going to hand over that much money to some unshaven slob wearing a polo 3 sizes too big tucked into his dad jeans and a hat straight out of junior high. If that guy try to conduct any real business he would get laughed out of most buildings if he somehow managed to get by security.

LOL @ dresscode = $$ , this mentality went out of the window decades ago ever since more 20something turned to millionaires than the ancient vanguards who used to turn millionaires at 50+

The door to door beggers and nigerian scammers all wear full suits, I bet you would invest in their businesses eagerly. Wink
