A new article in the Washington Post is bringing to light the story behind the shutdown of Silk Road, the illicit online marketplace.
The article describes the events of October 4th and explains why the shutdown was the catalyst for the shutdown.
“It was the end of an era for the Silkroad marketplace,” an unnamed Silk Road developer told the Post.
“For many, the site had become a refuge and haven from the Internet’s relentless grip.
Today, the world is again facing a massive economic downturn, with the shutdowns and subsequent shutdowns of several other online forums like Reddit and Discord making life harder for those who use these sites to find their way.”
The shutdown of the SilkRoad marketplace was a watershed event that has affected the entire web, from the forums where it was first created to the companies that make the platforms they run.
The shutdown forced the shutting down of some of the world’s largest platforms, including Reddit, Redditors and Reddit-like communities like /r/SilkRoad.
Many of the companies have been left with a huge financial loss, which they are still trying to recover from.
The Silk Road marketplace itself has been shut down as well, but it is unclear how much longer it will stay closed.
On October 4, 2017, a new Silk Road website appeared on the internet, a small and unofficial forum where users could post and sell drugs and other illegal goods.
The website, known as “Silk Road 2.0,” had been operating for nearly two years and was supposed to be the place where users would find and sell their drugs, but its popularity soon grew to be more than enough for the government to shut it down.
The site is now defunct, but the Silk road 2.2 forums are still active.
The FBI says it is not aware of any threats against the Silk roads servers.
The government said that in a statement, “we will not tolerate any criminal activity on our systems and we will not allow any unlawful activities to occur.”
In a statement to the Post, the FBI said, “We do not tolerate criminal activity, including those using illicit networks to sell illegal drugs and weapons.
Our focus is on preventing illegal activity and prosecuting those responsible for it.”
However, the shutdown and the shutdown itself are still seen by some as the reason behind the shut down of the website, the post said.
“Silent shutdowns are not good news for users or businesses, but these shutdowns do make it harder for businesses to access these websites for their customers,” the post reads.
“While the shutdown is a sad and unfortunate event, it is a lesson in how the Internet can be hijacked by the state, and this is what happened to Silk Road 2.”
In the wake of the shutdown, the Silk-Road forums and the Silk forums’ subreddit were banned.
Redditors who were not participating in Silk-Market forums were banned from Reddit.
The site’s administrator, Dread Pirate Roberts, also had to temporarily stop operations.
A number of companies have also lost millions of dollars.
The shutdowns have been blamed on the government, with many users calling the shutdown a victory for freedom.
In the wake.
of the shut downs, many users called the shutdowna victory for free speech.
In a tweet, one user wrote, “The Silk Road wasnt illegal but the government didnt do anything to stop it.”
Many users also blame the Silk sites shutdown on Reddit, which has been criticized for being too restrictive.
In one of the threads on the subreddit, one person wrote, Reddit has lost all of its freedom and all the freedom is back to the government.
Many people also say that the shutdown has been the beginning of a slippery slope where the government will continue to regulate the internet as a whole, as it has done for many years.
“I have always believed that the internet was built on free speech, but this is not the end, and it is dangerous,” one user told the Washington Times.
“The government can always use more power to take away your freedoms and that is exactly what they are doing now.”
The website Silk Road has been in decline for some time.
In December 2016, the website announced that it had lost more than $200 million in a single day.
In April 2017, it was reported that it was losing another $100 million in one day.
It is unclear whether or not the shutdown will affect its future.
