It is a year to the day since three alleged moderators/administrators of Silk Road were arrested.
I posted an update on where the three were here. Little has changed as they face another Christmas break in limbo.
In particular, the one who got the rawest deal, Aussie Peter Nash (accused of being forum moderator Samesamebutdifferent), is in New York prison. He remains positive and philosophical, and has this message:
“I just want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported me this past year. Today marks the one year anniversary of my arrest, not a date I really want to remember but an important date for me nonetheless. It has been one hell of a ride so far and there is still a way to go but this journey has been made easier knowing I have support out there. I especially want to thank those who have given practical and emotional support to not only me but my partner and my parents. I have amazing friends, you know who you are. I wish you all a happy and safe festive period.”
If anyone would like to send Peter a Christmas message, please let me know.
Merry Christmas all
