remember when they shut down nabster and then file sharing via torrents became the norm? More sites like this will pop up, but will be harder to shut down. maybe they wont be US based
No. This was a one time deal. You could buy guns, hookers, cocaine (in weight), hitmen and anything in between. And it was all "encryption" based. Thats a joke. The NSA rat just exposed the US government for basically knowing and monitoring EVERYTHING in the world. Phone call. texts, Emails. Everything.
The website in question was so ambitious and so ahead of its time, that is the only reason it lasted as long as it did. They had this guys M.O. a while ago and finally took him out. This guy was a mad-man. Seriously. To think the U.S. government can't break your sh**y encryption is a joke. They can crack sh** in a few days where people think the algorythms would be running for years to break it.
This is just the U.S. Gov not showing its hand. They say they caught him because of linkden accounts and crap. Not true. They found him a while back and finally struck. They sat there monitoring all the activity on that site for probably, a year or so. Checks and balances. They monitored this stuff until they got all they could from it and finally cuffed this idiot.
I mean, this moron exposed a large percentage of the "underworld" by letting them think it was safe. If you think uncle sam just finally found out and shut it down, that is crazy....
The site became useless to them anymore and they stopped it.
I mean, it had publicly cited how to vacuum seal drugs and weapons for delivery through the US postal service....
Remember how much money we spend on counter-terrorism...
This site was the motherload... for IDIOTS.
I mean really, you bought a hitman off the web?
Its almost too ridiculous to be true.
Im no conspiracy theorist, but I would not be surprised if this dude was staged by the feds to begin with. Talk about shooting fish in a barrel. Lets make a website that Drug dealers, pimps and murderers can use to conduct illegal business on a huge scale.
