MeWe: A trip report

Among the more frequently mentioned G+ alternatives at the Google+ Mass Migration community, and others, is MeWe with over 250 mentions. The site bills itself as "The Next-Gen Social Network" and the "anti-Facebook": "No Ads, No Political Bias, No Spyware. NO BS. It is headed by professed Libertarian CEO Mark Weinstein.
As the site reveals no public user-generated content to non-members, it's necessary to create an account in order to get a full impression. I thought I'd provide an overview based on recent explorations.
This report leads of with background on the company, though readers may find the report and analysis of specific groups on the site of interest.

Leadership

Founder & CEO Mark Weinstein.
Co-Founder & Chief Scientist, Jonathan Wolfe (no longer with company).
Weinstein previously founded SuperFamily and SuperFriends, "at the turn of the millennium". Weinstein's MeWe biography lists articles published by The Mirror (UK), Huffington Post, USA Today, InfoSecurity Magazine, Dark Reading, and the Nation. His media appearances include MarketWatch, PBS, Fox News, and CNN. He's also the author of several personal-success books.
His Crunchbase bio is a repeat of the MeWe content.

Advisory Board

Ownership & Investment

MeWe is the dba of Sgrouples, a private for-profit early-stage venture company based in Los Angeles, though with a Mountain View HQ and mailing address, 11-50 employees, with $10m in funding over five rounds, and a $20m valuation as of 2016.
Sgrouples, Inc., dba MeWe Trust & Safety - Legal Policy c/o Fenwick West 801 California Street Mountain View, CA 94041
Crunchbase Profile.
Founded: 2012 (source)
Secured $1.2M in seed funding in 2014.
2016 valuation: $20m (source]
Backers:
Despite the business address, the company claims to be based in Los Angeles County, California and is described by the Los Angeles Business Journal as a Culver City, CA, company.

Business

Policy

In an August 6, 2018 Twitter post, Weinstein promotes MeWe writing:
Do you have friends still on Facebook? Share this link with them about Facebook wanting their banking information - tell them to move to MeWe now! No Ads. No Spyware. No Political Agenda. No Bias Algorithms. No Shadow Banning. No Facial Recognition.
MeWe provide several policy-related links on the site:
Highlights of these follow.

Privacy

The privacy policy addresses:

Terms of Service

The ToS addresses:
Effective: November 6, 2018.

FAQ

The FAQ addresses:

Values

This emphasises that people are social cratures and private people by right. The service offers the power of self expression under an umbrella of safety. It notes that our innermost thoughts require privacy.
Under "We aspire...":
MeWe is here to empower and enrich your world. We challenge the status quo by making privacy, respect, and safety the foundations of an innovatively designed, easy-to-use social experience.
Totalling 182 words.

Privacy Bill of Rights

A ten-item statement of principles (possibly inspired by another document, it might appear):
  1. You own your personal information & content. It is explicitly not ours.
  2. You will never receive a targeted advertisement or 3rd party content based on what you do or say online. We think that's creepy.
  3. You see every post in timeline order from your friends, family & groups. We do not manipulate, filter, or change the order of your content or what you see.
  4. Permissions & privacy are your rights. You control them.
  5. You control who can access your content.
  6. You control what, if anything, others can see in member searches.
  7. Your privacy means we do not share your personal information with anyone.
  8. Your emojis are for you and your friends. We do not monitor or mine your data.
  9. Your face is your business. We do not use facial recognition technology.
  10. You have the right to delete your account and take your content with you at any time.

Press

There are a few mentions of MeWe in the press, some listed on the company's website, others via web search.

Self-reported articles

The following articles are linked directly from MeWe's Press page:
The page also lists a "Privacy Revolution Required Reading" list of 20 articles all addressing Facebook privacy gaffes in the mainstream press (Wired, TechCrunch, Fortune, Gizmodo, The Guardian, etc.).
There are further self-reported mentions in several of the company's PR releases over the years.

Other mentions

A DuckDuckGo search produces several other press mentions, including:

Technology

This section is a basic rundown of the user-visible site technology.

Mobile Web

The site is not natively accessible from a mobile Web browser as it is overlayed with a promotion for the mobile application instead. Selecting "Desktop View" in most mobile browsers should allow browser-based access.

Mobile App

There are both Android and iOS apps for MeWe. I've used neither of these, though the App store entries note:
Crunchbase cites 209,220 mobile downloads over the past 30 days (via Apptopia), an 80.78% monthly growth rate, from Google Play.

Desktop Web

Either selecting "View Desktop" or navigating with a Desktop browser to https://www.mewe.com your are presented with a registration screen, with the "About", "Privacy Bill of Rights", "MeWe Challenge", and a language selector across the top of the page. Information requested are first and last name, phone or email, and a password. Pseudonymous identities are permitted, though this isn't noted on the login screen. Returning members can use the "Member Log In" button.
The uMatrix Firefox extension reveals no third-party content: all page elements are served from mewe.com, img.mewe.com, cdn.mewe.com, or ws.mewe.com. (In subsequent browsing, you may find third-party plugins from, for example, YouTube, for videos, or Giphy, for animated GIFs.)
The web front-end is nginx. The site uses SSL v3, issued by DigiCert Inc. to Sgrouples, Inc.

Onboarding

The onboarding experience is stark. There is no default content presented. A set of unidentified icons spans the top of the screen, these turn out to be Home, Chats, Groups, Pages, and Events. New users have to, somehow, find groups or people to connect with, and there's little guidance as to how to do this.

Interface

Generally there is a three panel view, with left- and right-hand sidebars of largely navigational or status information, and a central panel with main content. There are also pop-up elements for chats, an omnipresent feature of the site.
Controls display labels on some devices and/or resolutions. Controls do not provide tooltips for navigational aid.

Features

Among the touted features of MeWe are:

Community

A key aspect of any social network is its community. Some of the available or ascertained information on this follows.

Size

Weinstein claims a "million+ following inside MeWe.com" on Twitter.
The largest visible groups appear to have a maximum of around 15,000 members , for "Awesome gifs". "Clean Comedy" rates 13,350, and the largest open political groups, 11,000+ members.
This compares to Google+ which has a staggering, though Android-registrations-inflated 3.3 billion profiles, and 7.9 million communities, though the largest of these come in at under 10 million members. It's likely that MeWe's membership is on the whole more more active than Google+'s, where generally-visible posting activity was limited to just over 9% of all profiles, and the active user base was well under 1% of the total nominal population.

Active Users

MeWe do not publish active users (e.g., MUA / monthly active users) statistics.

Groups

MeWe is principally a group-oriented discussion site -- interactions take place either between individuals or within group contexts. Virtually all discovery is group-oriented. The selection and dynamics of groups on the site will likely strongly affect user experience, so exploring the available groups and their characteristics is of interest.
"MeWe has over 60,000 open groups" according to its FAQ.
The Open groups -- visible to any registered MeWe user, though not to the general public Web -- are browsable, though sections and topics must be expanded to view the contents: an overview isn't immediately accessible. We provide a taste here.
A selection of ten featured topics spans the top of the browser. As I view these, they are:
Specific groups may appear in multiple categories.
The top Groups within these topics have, variously, 15,482, 7,738, 15,482 (dupe), 7,745, 8,223, 8,220, 1,713, 9,527, 2,716, and 1,516 members. Listings scroll at length -- the Music topic has 234 Groups, ranging in size from 5 to 5,738 members, with a median of 59, mean of 311.4, and a 90%ile of 743.5.
Below this is a grid of topics, 122 in all, ranging from Activism to Wellness, and including among them. A selected sample of these topics, with top groups listed members in (parens), follows:
To be clear: whilst I've not included every topic, I've sampled a majority of them above, and listed not an arbitrary selection, but the top few Groups under each topic.

Google+ Groups

The Google Plus expats group seems the most active of these by far.

Political Groups

It's curious that MeWe make a specific point in their FAQ that:
At MeWe we have absolutely no political agenda and we have a very straightforward Terms of Service. MeWe is for all law-abiding people everywhere in the world, regardless of political, ethnic, religious, sexual, and other preferences.
There are 403 political groups on MeWe. I won't list them all here, but the first 100 or so give a pretty clear idea of flavour. Again, membership is in (parentheses). Note that half the total political Groups memberships are in the first 21 groups listed here, the first 6 are 25% of the total.

  98. 2nd Amendment (287)
  99. Never Forget #SethRich (286)
  100. Green Party Supporters 2020 (283)
It seems there is relatively little representation from the left wing, or even the centre, of the political spectrum. A case-insensitive match for "liberal" turns up:
Mainstream political parties are little represented, though again, the balance seems skewed searching on "(democrat|republic|gop)":
The terms "left" and "right" provide a few matches, not all strictly political-axis aligned:
Socialism and Communism also warrant a few mentions:
And there are some references to green, laboulabor parties:

Conclusion

Whilst there may not be a political agenda, there does appear to be at least a slight political bias to the site. And a distinctive skew on many other topical subjects.
Those seeking new homes online may wish to take this into account.

TIL: The latest ponzi scheme - PIPcoin

Well today was interesting. After seeing a ton of people trying to spam their referral links into some of the big Facebook groups we run at work, I decided to investigate a bit more after dinner & a couple of glassses of wine.
Let me introduce you to PIPcoin. (for those like me who missed it when it last came up on the sub)
PIPcoin from the horses mouth
PIPcoin's CEO on SABC
One of his "free" seminars.
Here is a quick recording off their homepage :-(
Pipcoin is Africa’s first P2P Cryptocurrency and is more seen as an emerging digital currency that seeks to revolutionize accessibility and raise awareness about the importance of online trading to the multitudes of both the aspirant traders and those who are completely unaware of the abounding benefits and opportunities offered by the digital market. Thus, for all its worth as a potential life-changing tool, we want Pipcoin to be everybody’s business.
So this is new... lets take a look at their FAQ's because I have many! here are my favourite bits:
What Is The Structure Of A Pipcoin? Pipcoin Concept (for developers) -IF YOU HAVE 0,9999 MICRO-PIPS THEN IT WILL BE ROUNDED OFF TO 1.0000 – MAKING IT 1 PIPCOIN-
lol really? Where does that extra micro tit pip come from?
Why Pipcoin Isnt A Get Rich Quick Scheme Whenever there is a new digital breakthrough it is natural for people to be sceptic, this has been scientifically proven. Even at one stage the internet was said to be a scam, same goes to online trading, they said it won’t last. Same goes to Facebook; they said it’s an information-leaking scam. Same goes again to Bitcoin they said it’s a ‘failed experiment’. Pipcoin is the people’s currency and can never in a scale be compared to ponzi schemes and investment bonanzas; Pipcoin is a friend-to-friend digital currency which has its own crypto keys and public ledger just like any other legit digital currency. Everyone is a host to the currency, every participants’ computers serve as servers to the system and just like forex trading it is a zero-sum game, when you buy the coins there will be someone selling to you.
SkepticalHippoIsSkeptical.jpg
Who Is The Founder Of Pipcoin? However the inception of the idea can be credited to David Schwartz and the inception of the algorithm and mathematics behind to Ref Wayne, a 21 year old South African who is behind the creation of most high-tech forensic software as well as the indicators for financial trading platform (Forex Metatrader), it is without chance that the creation of Pipcoin is water-proof and crack-free.
Aside from the laughable wording, this is perhaps the most interesting part. If you can make it through this interview or this video his story sounds a lot like this "David Schwartz" story here. Excuse the popups but give it a read and obviously the comments at the bottom.
Is Pipcoin Legal? ...After all, there is no authority that can stop anyone from buying and selling a product online.
hahahahahahahahAHAHAha!
Do I Need To Provide Any Id Documents To Join Pipcoin is a cryptocurrency which means it’s completely encrypted, even for its users, it remains completely confidential. You don’t need to submit any documents.
erm... surely this goes against SO many laws in SA?
How Reliable Is This Website In Terms Of Security And Keeping Personal Data And Pipcoins [no ? at the end of these ones for some reason] We pay great attention to security and the confidential information on the website is protected by EV SSL. We don’t divulge any personal data of members to third parties. Your participation too, is strictly confidential.
thats...not really explaining it at all. SSL isnt the be-all and end all - but oh there's another one right below. Im sure that'll clear it up...
Are You Protected From Hackers We have installed power Anti-DDOS protection on our servers and have many other security measures.
well that settles it.
ok ok so whats next?
Some points/gems from their Terms of User PDF [mirror here] (i've never heard that phrase) but looks like something from the lawfirm of Copy, Pasta and Google.
All references to the ‘company,’ ‘us,’ ‘our,’ ‘we’ or ‘Pipchain’ means Pipchain South Africa S.a.r.l., a company registered under the laws of South Africa, with a share capital of EUR 55,222.08, having its registered address at L-2340 South Africa, 1, rue Philippe II, registered with the South Africa Trade and Companies Register under number B 190.078 (Business License number B190078).
I tried to find out if thats real but I couldnt figure out how to do it via the new http://www.cipc.co.za/ site.
Their privacy policy link https://pipchain.com/PrivacyPolicy.pdf 404's
Typos galore eg - " Server failure ordata loss;"
We make no warranty that the Website or the server that makes it available, are free of viruses or errors, that its content is accurate, that it will be uninterrupted, or that defects will be corrected.
wut?!
  1. AGREEMENT TO HOLD PIPCHAIN HARMLESS
wut2
7.2. If you are obligated to indemnify us, we will have the right, in our sole discretion, to control any action or proceeding (at our expense) and determine whether we wish to settle it.
ok...
9.1. You need not use a Pipchain Wallet. If you wish to use the Wallet, you must create a wallet with Pipchain to access the Services (“Wallet”)
I need an adult.
10.5. No Storage or Transmission of Pipcoins. Pipcoins are an intangible, digital asset. They exist only by virtue of the ownership record maintained in the Pipcoin network. The Services do not store, send or receive Pipcoins. Any transfer of title that might occur in any Pipcoins occurs on the decentralized ledger within the Pipcoin network and not within the Services. We do not guarantee that the Service can effect the transfer of title or right in any Pipcoins.
and
10.8. No Cancellations or Modifications. Once transaction details have been submitted to the Pipcoin network via the Services, The Services cannot assist you to cancel or otherwise modify your transaction details. Pipchain has no control over the Pipcoin Network and does not have the ability to facilitate any cancellation or modification requests.
In the SABC interview (linked at the top of this post) the CEO says he took bitcoin and 'modified' it to be safer and so you can track 'stolen or lost' coins. So thats a lie.
  1. DISCONTINUANCE OF SERVICES 15.1.

erm, ok but because PIPcoins can only be traded on their website and not transferred to anything else... how does that work?

They claim to have a 30-35% growth rate on any and all investments! Crazy returns.
I did a bit of a google on them and immediately found these posts.
Some choice excerpts:
The company has promised that it will soon be issuing a debit card. Promising to issue a debit is an old trick used by fraudulent companies to create a false sense of trust and legitimacy to unsuspecting investors.
and
The transfer of pipcoins is verified by one sources, instead of 3 independent source as is usually the case with legitimate crypto currencies with a blockchain.
and
They also use wording similar to ‘get-rich-quick' scheme lines such as “Pipcoin will create over a 100 millionaires by the end of this financial year”. These are revealing signs of a fraudulent scheme. Moreover, pipcoin is a closed system, you cannot trade with anyone other than randomly chose people registered on the website. Their blockchain is not public or transparent, in fact, they do not have a blockchain and, if they do have one, then it is not operational.
So who's behind it? Who is this Ref dude?
According to his Twitter bio he's "Youngest Billionaire in Africa | Founder of African 1st ever digital currency ! Get a minimum interest of 35% @infopipcoin"
here are some choice images from his public FB:
I tried to register on https://mypipcoins.com/ but there's an ASPX error during the registration process and it kept trying to switch between https and http. Great start. I tried in all major browsers and they all failed so I gave up on trying to signup with my temp email [email protected] :(
So then, lets take a closer look at the support they offer on their site. They've got one of those "live chat" widgets on their site and this evening there was actually someone online :)
I said "hello" and saw "busi has joined the conversation" - sweet.
Here is the transcript I downloaded before they killed the chat. Lucky I insta-clicked the download before they killed my chat session.
As you can see by the chat log, Busi linked me to whats obviously the new 'site' they're launching this weekend https://pipchain.com/
The site looks a lot like the blockchain.info website.
Their market page is awesome compared to blockchain.info's one! its even got a bigger market cap! Note the article links are all the same, except for two small things.
  1. None of the links work...because
  2. they've done a find&replace in the code, replacing all instances of "bitcoin" with "pipcoin" XD
Anyway, I thought I'd try signup on THIS site and lo 'n behold I managed to sign up! [email protected] lives!
Here is PIPcoin's dashboard and here is Blockchain.info's dashboard.
Here is PIPcoins transactions page and here is Blockchain.info's transaction page.
So pretty much a blatant copy/pasta job.
-- final thoughts --
Its unfortunate that the quality of journalism in SA is so weak. PIPcoin getting a lot of media attention for something thats honestly so dodgy, if you looked at it for more than 5 minutes you'd know. Many people are going to fall for this and if you look at the comments on twitter or on his FB posts or on any video calling out the scam you'll shake your head.
Someone (not me) has even put this site together https://www.pipcoin.co/ which is as informative as it is awesome! Click the login and it takes you to "Logging in should be the last thing you should be worried about right now." and the bottom of the site has the best burn ever
"This website was built as a public service announcement by concerned citizens (and shows what a legitimate site should look like"
I did try connect with the 'owner' via twitter to find the source/calculation of the "R40 314 800,00 lost & counting" figure but so far no reply.
Anyway its late and I'm going to bed. I hope you learnt something and if you see anyone in your social circles promoting this please make them aware.
EDIT: Reddit formatting is hard.
EDIT2: Got a reply from the person behind the pipcoin.co site - http://imgur.com/a/995oN which honestly shows the lack of skills the scheme has in the development/security field and now if you rewatch the interviews you can see why he's so scripted when talking about the tech stack.
EDIT3: Sigh. I made a comment on the PIPcoin FB page to warn people about this and this is the response I found this morning - http://imgur.com/a/tFoAy I dont even know what/how to respond...

[Table] IamA porn site owner. AMA!

Verified? (This bot cannot verify AMAs just yet)
Date: 2013-08-19
Link to submission (Has self-text)
Questions Answers
Hello. Interesting AMA. Do you make enough to live comfortably? Yes. I grossed just shy of $300,000 last year. I drive a Mercedes and live in a luxury apartment in an expensive area of the country.
Does your family know? Not really. My only concern is with legality and VISA/MC's "BRAM" violations, since they could blacklist me and prevent me from ever accepting credit cards again.
Can I have a free pass? ;-) My sister knows, but my mother doesn't. The rest of my family has passed away or never existed.
Hah. Would if I could, but my site sells clips individually. There are no subscriptions... yet. :)
What does your mother think you do? I went self employed a year ago, but I have another website (which doesn't do as well) that I can point people to. As long as they don't examine it too much they probably wouldn't notice the lack of activity.
Awesome. What is the site name? :-) Lemonparty. ;)
(note: I'm kidding, of course.)
You say what you grossed but what's your margin? And would you accept outside investment? Net profit margins on clips are between 20% and 30%. Tribute margins between 10% and 20%.
Can you elaborate on not having any ethical concerns? What measures do you have in place to make sure the performers in your videos have good working conditions, aren't being coerced or manipulated into performing, aren't victims of human trafficking, etc.? I have no measures in place to prevent those, really. It's more policing them after-the-fact.
The only thing really in place is the ability to report a video, which then flags it for the review of an admin. If the video looks like it could be illegal, we take it offline until the studio can provide proof the video is legal.
According to the DMCA, content platforms cannot be held liable for the content posted by the user to a reasonable extent.
What I meant is I don't have moral concerns about the content of my site. A lot of it is pretty revolting, but it's not my job to judge or deny anyone for their fetish, as long as its within the bounds of the law.
Dad? Grandpas.
I wonder if that site has any serious profit. Everyone knows it. I doubt it... accidental ad clicks, maybe. The thing about advertising is it works best when you sell it to people in your market. I would assume that not many people go, dicks-in-hand, to lemonparty. But if its one thing owning a site like mine has taught me, its to not make assumptions about what materials people look for while "firing the surgeon general".
So by my math you're making around $75k/yr. if you're grossing 300k--surely a comfortable life, but by no means the lap (or crotch, in this case) of luxury. That sounds about right. Maybe less. Sometimes I'll work web contracts to supplement my income. It also helps remind me why I much prefer working for myself. :)
How often do you get a completely inappropriate video that you have to reject? Not too often, but there's some pretty harsh stuff on the site. I really try to look at it objectively. Some of the stuff makes me cringe and is hard to watch. Dudes getting kicked in the balls, for example.
Edit: Willingly, I might add.
Yay, a foremen fan! NICE! I was wondering if anyone was gonna get that reference.
Do you ever visit other porn sites to get off? Or do you stick to your own? I never get hard on my own supply.
Pretty much, the content on my own site isn't for me. We have some very attractive women on the site, but there isn't much traditional porn on the platform.
What's one weird trick that will help me last longer and/or increase the size of my dick? From personal experience? More foreplay.
If you've ever been given blueballs and afterwards pulled out your wang, you'd be surprised at how much bigger it can get. Freaked myself out once after a heavy petting session that wasn't advancing.
How was that username not taken? No idea.
Why did you make this AMA anonymous when you could have used this as a marketing campaign? I'm not really looking to profit off of this. I've read a bunch of awesome AMAs and figured I could contribute and answer some peoples curiosity. When I tell people in person they always have a hundred questions for me.
How long have you been in the industry? Besides, I find it difficult to believe anyone could be into some of the things on my site. I doubt it would boost sales.
Do you still find porn appealing or is it all pretty run-of-the-mill now? About 3 years.
I'm not turned on by many of the videos on my own site, so it hasn't changed porn for me much at all. I stick to beeg and motherless, personally.
Where do you think the future of porn on the internet is headed? The same direction the rest of the web industry is heading. HTML5 / Javascript MVC frameworks. High scalability platforms. The only advantage is there's a serious shortage of talented developers in the adult industry, so those of us who do know these technologies have an upper hand.
all the sites like Redtube/youporn etc... all giving away porn for free has to make a big dent into your profits? We do find our studios' clips on some of these sites. Sometimes a DMCA notice works, sometimes not. However, since the bulk of my customers are into financial domination, they prefer to pay for the clips. We also make a good amount of money from "tributes", which are simply cash donations. Not sure of the legality of tributes, but they're an industry staple.
What is this "financial domination" stuff? Sounds real kinky! I searched for it on a competitors video site but couldn't find anything.. It is indeed a real thing. I've come to learn about some pretty crazy fetishes people have.
FinDom (financial domination) Fart porn / flatulence Hiccups Giantess (look this one up. you won't believe it.)
What is financial domination? "A real thing" isn't really an answer and doesn't really help. Pls describe in further detail. Financial domination is a fetish where men, who are usually in powerful corporate positions, want to give up control. They're usually in charge, but this lets them not be. Sometimes it's via video chat, sometimes its just a video they purchase, but every time it has to do with being called names, told they're not good enough or just worthless "pay piggies". The girls will demand the men give them money, and they do. Usually there's not even any nudity unless its the man getting naked. I've seen some crazy shit with FinDom. Guys with broomsticks up their asses and womens clothes on... whatever the girl wants to do to humiliate the guy.
Sometimes they let the girls control their computer remotely with access to go through their email, send themselves money, etc, while they just watch with their dick in their hand.
It's odd and I don't understand it, but again, I'm not here to judge. I'm here to make money.
One studio I know demanded a man buy her a brand new BMW M3 convertible, and he did. He gave her $10k in cash per month until it was paid off. That's an $80k car.
I wish I was a hot girl... They make pills for that.
That's really crazy, you're basically just giving money away to someone you don't know at all.. It is interesting, but it exists, so I don't question it too much.
I'm looking for porn including a walrus with a tooth brush and their trainer. Do you have anything? EDIT: Of course THIS has to be my highest rated comment... Will an elephant seal and a tourist work? Also, do you care if the tooth brush is motorized?
That depends does the elephant seal have control of the motorized tooth brush? Checking...
What is your technical background? Are you a programmer? Do you manage the tech of the website yourself or is it 'outsourced'? I've been programming full time for professional corporations and agencies for 15 years now. I do manage the tech myself, but I make heavy use of Amazon web services.
Is it legal to post that kind of content on AWS ? It's not not-legal.
Who moves more content than porn sites? AWS would be missing out on a large large profit if they didn't allow adult content.
I'm curious, how much did you make programming before you had this site? My last gig I made $135k. Before that, $120k.
How big was it? We'll just say he's not the king anymore. ;)
Does anyone ever actually click those share buttons? Share to... what? Facebook?
reddit, and google plus, etc. I wouldn't know. I don't have them on our site.
You mentioned good integration with Twitter earlier. That's for marketing? Like you have a twitter account for the site? I have a twitter account for the site, but the twitter integration I spoke of is a feature that lets studios connect their twitter account and have it auto-post a link when their video goes live.
Do you produce original content or do you buy content and resell it? Neither. We grant studios the access to upload their own clips and add their own meta data, set the price, etc. They get a majority % of the sale.
What's the average net profit of a typical clip, from a popular performer(s)? A couple of dollars. Most girls sell clips around $10, and of that they get to keep apx $6 - $7. Our net income for the clips are around 25%-40%. We give better rates to the better performing studios, to keep them interested and using our platform.
Me and my roommate have been toying around with the idea of starting a pron site, I have around 30k saved up, Would that be enough to start a redtube-ish website? Also whats the most expensive part of building a porn site? I.E. Licences , hosting, hardware, Hiring someone to build the website. Nice! Good luck with it. It's a challenging industry. Things that would take 20 minutes on a normal business can take days in the adult industry. (finding a payment processor, for example)
A redtube-style site would be quite a challenge, financially, I think. Policing it could also be pretty difficult.
The most expensive part, for me since I did all of my own design and programming, was getting VISA/MC approval for a high risk account. VISA has a $1000 annual fee and MC has a $500 annual fee, at least through my payment processor. Fees are also ass-rapingly high.
You can make use of Amazon Web Services to lower costs substantially.
How much would you guess it would cost to design and program a video hosting website? Also how hard was it in the beginning to get studios to sell their clips on your site? If I calculated it in hours spent on it myself, looking at around 3 months, so we'll say 500 hours. I charge $65/h if I ever take on freelance clients, so looking at about $32000 for someone at my rate. I'm expensive because of my extensive experience, so you can probably get it done for less.
751 studios 19,138 videos Apx 5000 visits per day - A good number of which are sent directly from the studios to purchase on the site or send a tribute.
Can you give us a rough description of your architecture? What OS/Web servelanguage do you use... Do you use a CDN to serve up the videos or do you host them yourself? And what bits of AWS do you use? How many EC2 instances? The site itself runs on a single server, a VM actually. It runs PHP with CodeIgniter for the framework and MySQL as the database. I make extensive use of CodeIgniter's caching abilities. Once the video is safely on S3, the studios can complete the meta data, pricing, and choose when the video goes live. All the video previews and gifs are uploaded to S3 and served through AWS Cloudfront CDN.
Thanks for your AMA, I'm finding this very interesting. I'm a developer (.net) who is looking for a niche where I can start up my own business... I know I'm not going to get rich working for a someone else... Congrats to you for doing this, and being very successful! Thanks! I'm the same way. I couldn't see myself becoming wealthy as an employee, even though my last paying job as a developer was $135k salaried. I have an FTP server setup where the usernames and passwords are powered by MySQL. Each studio gets their own FTP login. I have a cronjob that will run every few minutes and pick up files that are finished uploading and send them to Amazon S3 after gathering some basic meta information.
Thanks for the replys, Its giving me a valuable insight. One more question, How many people do you have employed? And what are their roles? I have myself, a consultant (she gets a profit split), and an assistant. Other than that, everything is fully automated. I didn't want to have to spend all my time on the site, so everything but customer support is automated -- all the accounting is done through Xero's API and I even have a porn-specific accountant/CPA.
Of the 5000 visits per day, approx. how many actually purchase a clip? Are you able to track repeat purchases (do they have to make an account to buy)? Or do you track another way? A dozen orders, maybe 30 on a good day.
Thank you again for answering my questions. :) No problem. I'm an open book. Feel free to keep asking questions.
Wait, how does that add up? If the site is turning over $300+k, then it should be making $1000 of sales a day. If you are only selling 10-30 clips a day then they would need to cost $30-100 each. Unless there are other revenue streams (such as tributes) which I'm missing? Tributes are at least half of the business.
I'd say you're like an open book with a couple pages stuck shut. ;) slow clap
Double entendre.
That really doesn't add up. you said most of the girls sell their clips for $10, you get 25-40% of that and you sell 12-30 a day. Lets assume the average clips sell for $15 to be safe, and you get 35% of that - you get $5.25 per clip. If you sell 25 in a day, you earn $131. My math may be off -- It's hard to spitball an average price. Some days I don't even look at the numbers. Clips alone can sell between $200 - $600 a day. Tributes sometimes into the multiple thousands in a day.
Have you ever met some of the girls in the videos from the professional studios? If positive, have you done anythign whit said girl/s? I know a few of them personally, but have only met one of them -- the girl who convinced me to build the site. She sleeps in my bed when she's in town, but I don't make any moves. Not sure how I would react if she did.
It may be worth noting at this point that personally, I'm into good girls. Risque women or "bad girls" don't do it for me, generally speaking.
I kid. Relax. Nope. The entire site is completely automated. All I do is approve the invoices in our online accounting software and handle customer support, which takes maybe an hour a week. :)
I wanna make that much money to do nothing! Start a porn site. :)
For me, it made sense as a money generating asset requiring little effort beyond the initial build.
laughs Oh man, my kids would be so proud of me! Seriously though, good on ya for seizing an efficient opportunity when it came your way. I can't hate on that at all. Again, it goes back to money generating assets. Getting money for doing nothing is exactly what you should be aiming for if you want to make lots of money. I can't see myself becoming wealthy while working for someone else.
Again, it goes back to money generating assets. My 'plan' for this just came together recently. I work for myself in the web/internet marketing realm. Focusing on recurring income is very important to financial growth and stability. Even better, recurring income plus economies of scale = wealth. Agreed.
Wow. That last sentence is incredibly poignant. Sorry. :)
It's just the personal conclusion I reached while evaluating my life.
How does your website stand with data privacy? Do you you sell customer's data on to ad companies or do you only make money off of the porn movies? Although it's fairly common industry practice, I don't participate in it. It's odd, but I try to run my business as professionally as possible. No ads, no link exchanges, no share buttons, no privacy violations. Also, I treat my studios with respect as any normal business would to any partner of theirs. It's surprisingly easy to stand out in the porn business when you abide by those rules.
What types of porn will you not let on your site? Spanking, anything that says "forced" or "rape", even if its clearly labeled as theatrical. Obviously nothing illegal... and no "hypnosis". Those are restrictions VISA/MC places on me. I've considered taking bitcoin on the new platform, but now I'm going to wait and see how this senate hearing thing plays out.
What is hypnosis porn? You're getting horny. Verrry horny. Look into my swirly eyes. Give me your monies. Giiive me your moniiieees.
How did you get started in the biz? I've been building websites for fortune 500 companies for 15 years now. Several years ago I reconnected with a girl I knew from IRC who did "financial domination" clips and cam shows. A few years ago (3 or so) she began suggesting I build a clip site. After a few months of this, and running numbers on what potential profits could be, I decided to do it.
Who did you have to bang to get that job? I had to bang keys for 12 years to teach myself how to program. From there it's just about having enough fortitude to start a business, and even moreso with an adult business. There's a certain stigma involved. Most people know me as "the guy with the porn site".
Why are there "Like" buttons and share buttons on porn sites? I have no idea. Who would share the porn they're watching? Kind of a personal thing.
Do you ever get approached by angry moms or family members asking you to take down their loved ones from the site? Not yet.
Maybe a weird question, but do you have to do a lot in your day to day life or is it something on the background where you have a lot of time? I don't have to do much at all. The site runs itself. I answer between 1 and 3 customer support emails per day and approve payouts to the studios once a month.
Other than that, I spend my time on my other business ideas and websites. Or I'll just sleep all day... Whatever I want to do, really.
Thats the dream. And probably the only reason I run my site. :)
Ever thought of taking a second job? i mean with that less stuff to do you can add another job for more money. I could, but my freedom to build my own businesses means more to me than income. As long as I can pay my bills and have my freedom, then I'm good.
Not sure if you're still on, but you really inspire me. I'm shitty with computers, and I plan on majoring in computer sciences(moreso in networking) and just reading your replies gives me hope that someday I'll have enough experience to start my own business/build clientele. Thanks. I'm not a big porn fan or anything, it's just a way I found to make ends meet while I work on my real plan. :)
Have you noticed any issues with piracy? Occasionally. I've found most people who spend money on the site either don't want to share something they've paid for, or would have an incredibly difficult time doing so.
What I mean is, a good portion of our demographic are middle-eastern men proxying through misc servers all over the US. They'd have a rough time uploading clips to another site.
Interesting demographics. People living in the Middle East, or just from there? Living in the middle east. Places where this kind of content is more than banned.
Any idea if this is normal for other sites as well? From what I understand, it's common for clip sites, financial domination sites and religious fetish sites.
So you circumvent piracy by offering content to people who aren't likely to distribute it? Is that your business model or just a happy coincidence? I have to say I'm surprised a porn site could be profitable considering how much free stuff there is out there. Don't sites like YouPorn and RedTube bury you? Happy coincidence. They totally bury me in traffic. I've found a niche that works well, though.
Is it true all the talent is now moving from Cali due to the condom laws and going to Las Vegas? I haven't heard too much about it from inside the industry. We do have a good amount of studios in Las Vegas, Florida, and England.
England. How is the industry over here? Strong on the seller side. The buyer side is particularly weak.
What do you think about 3D porn and virtual reality porn? 3D Porn is interesting, as is VR. I'm more interested in network controlled adult toys. I think its the future.
Agree about the network controlled toys. Have there been any newer advancements in this area that you know of? Theres a few newer ones on the market... a his & hers USB powered vibrator set I recently discovered. It might have been on kickstarter. It wasn't related to my site, I just came across it online.
How many times have people in videos sued or tried to take any legal action against you? None.
My biggest competitor did threaten to sue me, though. And they've gone after my top studios, trying to get them to leave my site... slandering my business in the process.
Can you sue for defamation or slander? You can.
I don't need to lose in court, I just need to be lawyer-fee'd to death. :(
Since you've been doing this for only a couple of years and it has been so financially successful for you, have you considered branching out into different types of porn sites? Or is this "buy a clip" the best business model you have found? I wouldn't want to do other types. The buy content/sell subscriptions never really worked for me as a customer, and the redtube style sites don't work for me numbers-wise. I'm very anti-advertising, so I wouldn't want to rely on that as a source of revenue. My consultant has tried to get me to create a thumb-gallery style site, but I'm not fond of the idea.
We are working on a new platform, though, which will require customer accounts and lets them stream the videos they unlock through HTML5 video. We've also reorganized the new platform into fetish verticals so we can try to capitalize on that. Our current discovery process admittedly sucks. There's a lot of videos on our site that are in the dark.
Do you see free sites such as pornhub and redtube as a source of lost profit? I don't see them as a threat. Some of the studios do, though. I've been told my new platform shouldn't have the video previews I'm planning (20 seconds of footage), as guys "jack off to the previews". I think it's better for the customer, though.
What day see's the most traffic on your site? Historically, Tuesdays. No idea why. Sundays are the slowest, by far.
I have always wanted to put my skills as an interaction designer to good use, by simply creating such a site as yours, especially for mobile devices or wearables. Augmented r porn ftw. You wouldn't need an intro, per se, it just helps. You could take out advertising on popular sites in your micro-industry and get some studios coming in. You could also tweet the studios directly, as they watch their twitter pretty well (it's how a lot of them communicate with their "pay-piggies").
However getting the content has always been the biggest issue (even in the netherlands)... If you never have met this girl that initially gave you the idea to start this up, would you've managed? Or is it near impossible to get enough good content to get started, without good contacts and, lets say, about 30k in cash? I would not have built the site without my consultant. It took a considerable amount of nudging from her to get me to build the site.
I know which website is yours :P Other than the people uploading clips, how many employees do you have and what are their jobs? :)
Just myself and my consultant (she also runs a studio). I have another "employee" who is helping me on another endeavor with the same parent company, currently uncompensated, whom I referred to as my assistant in another answer similar to this. Don't tell her that, though. She's much more helpful than an assistant.
How does someone find a job (not even a career!) in this field? My talents are webdesign and html(5)/css3. But I also wouldn't mind filming / writing / even acting although I'm out of shape. I just like porn that much. That -- I have no idea. Sorry.
Tl;dr and question: In Britain certain extreme content is becoming potentially illegal and porn, especially of certain types, is being vilified by the government. 1) What personal rules do you observe in terms of content you allow? 2) Are there any censorship rules in America that do/could affect content you post of extreme porno, and how do you deal with them? 2) As far as I'm aware, there aren't many rules about it. I haven't been gifted with too many "extreme porn" studios, though, so that's been a blessing. It makes me quite a bit uncomfortable.
Wouldn't you make more money offering the clips for free and making money off ad revenue? Probably not. That would require massive traffic which is both expensive to attain and expensive to pay for the bandwidth. My customers come to the site looking to spend money, and they don't get any big video files until they've paid for them. Additionally, splitting revenue with the studios would be considerably more difficult.
How often do you fap? No more than the average reddit user.
So all the time? I may or may not be fapping right now.
How old are you? Do you see yourself doing this for the rest of your life? Generally it seems that being your own boss is your dream job, but what specifically would you most like to do as your primary source of income? Or does this not matter to you? I'm in my late 20s. I don't see myself doing this for the rest of my life, but this is a means to free up my time. My time is invaluable to me since I can spend it building businesses outside the adult arena.
It matters very much to me. I'm not a genius and I'm not a wonder child. I started below middle class. I've had to work 4x harder than a lot of the talented people in my industry. The important thing is that I understand this and I'm willing to put the work in.
"What I lack in talent, I make up for with raw tenacity." - Henry Rollins.
Is is awkward or embarrassing saying what you do to friends and family? What about in relationships? If I were making millions, I'd be a little less "embarrassed". It's not so much embarrassing, I just understand that in current society it's frowned upon. For example, if I were looking for a job, some companies may not hire me because of my site. Some girls wouldn't date me because of it. It really depends on the person I tell.
Are you considering retiring soon or do you really wanna see your site take off? I've gone back and forth on whether or not to finish the new platform, but its so cool from a technological standpoint. Plus, I'm sitting on 20,000 clips with full permission to sell -- how could I not make a better site and give it a real go?
Do you watch your own clips? For humor content, sometimes yes. Nothing like a gorgeous girl backing her ass up to the camera and ripping the LOUDEST, JUICIEST fart you can imagine. I have pulled stomach muscles laughing at some of the clips.
Other than that, the content doesn't really interest me.
What is your view on 'NoFap'? or furthermore, the emerging evidence that porn addiction is a widespread problem that is affecting thousands/millions of people? I wasn't aware of it. I don't really have an opinion? I think as with all things, moderation is key. A lot of people are addicted to alcohol, but nobody is shaming liquor stores. At the end of the day, nobody is responsible for you but yourself. Might be a Libertarian thing, though.
Working hard, or hardly working? :D. I see this, and I understand it.
Do you have a girlfriend or wife? What did they think of the idea? I don't. But quite a few girls know and don't really care.
What's the difference between a website like yours and websites like the nsfw version of youtube? My site sells clips. You buy a clip for a price, you download it and its yours to view over and over. We have a profit sharing split with the studios who produced the clip. We're essentially a video sales platform.
How does the whole licensing thing go? Just shoot an email to a porn studio and be like "hey can I use your videos on my website? You get 30% of the revenue (; (; (;" I've always wondered how this sort of stuff worked in the "entertainment" field. They have to sign up on my site. I send out 1099s to domestic studios at the end of the year.
How did you get started, what made you decide to run a porn site? I had a friend who urged me to make it (She runs a studio). After about a year of constantly asking, and the timing was right, we ran numbers and it looked doable.
Do you have a fav porn star? I don't really have any favorites. I prefer "good girls".
Hi, do you ever have any trouble getting developers and designers to work on an 'Adult' website? I've never tried.
Also, can you recommend an adult payment gateway provider? As for the payment gateway, I'd recommend Netbilling. They'll work with you to find a merchant account provider and a gateway partner (they don't sell direct).

Questions Answers
How did you get caught? A package was flagged from Holland with my name and address on and police turned up to my house. They confiscated my phone, computer and laptop and found evidence against me.
What happened afterward? I'm assuming nothing too strict if you're on Reddit! I was bailed by the police and answered bail after 6 months.
I was referred to Magistrate's court and bailed for a further 6 months.
I was then referred from MC to Crown Court and bailed for yet another 6 months or so.
I attended Crown Court 5 times and was entering an early guilty plea. Looking at the guidelines my solicitor said it was 100% a custodial sentence and to expect 3 years at most with your credit. So after trying to plead guilty for 4 court appearances, the judge was still not happy with the case going ahead because the prosecution had missed things out and made errors. My solicitor was also pretty useless and the judge wasn't happy.
At my final appearance I gave evidence in the dock as the prosecution implied that I was a commercial drug dealer who was making a profit. I said that I wasn't making any profit and the drugs were intended to be sold on at cost price to close friends.
The judge made a call based on my character and ignored a lot of the evidence against me. He reduced the sentence down to 12 months, suspended for 2 years and gave me some community service.
Well, I'm glad you're off the hook, I'm personally very happy with the idea of all drugs being legal and regulated, I feel that would solve a lot of problems and get the help required for those who need it, but I've got to say. Well there was evidence of me selling ecstasy tablets to almost 20 friends over a ~12 month period. But I had stopped selling and the final order which was due to arrive 4-5 months after I had stopped selling was seized and led to my arrest. So the prosecution tried to draw inferences from the fact I had clearly sold ecstasy before to say that I was planning on selling this order too. But when giving evidence I said that this was my final order, 75% of the order was for friends and 25% was for me and my girlfriend.
Thank you for that clarification. Now I understand, and that seems completely fair, dismissing stuff as irrelevant rather than ignoring current evidence. No problem.
I have a question and it may be a bit shitty but why did you use your computer or phone to sell to your friends? I would think that if I were planning on selling drugs I would never use any medium which can be traced so directly to me whether it's on the phone or using facebook or whatnot. I have heard of a few cases where the people selling drugs were sending facebook messages to each other in a really basic code about buying them and it always struck me as a bit odd being that careless. Did the police discover your code quickly or did you explain it to them when you plead guilty and then they tried to use it in the prosecution? I never thought the police would have a reason to look at my messages. I was just sending normal messages discussing it and it was indeed, very stupid.
What was the quality of the drugs like? I heard importing from Silk Road almost ensured really good quality when compared with what you'd get from a dealer. It was always good quality. Some times a bit too good quality.
Speaking out of total ignorance, care to elaborate on "too good quality?" The MDMA that I received was always from the same presser. They pressed the Q-dance, Defqon, Partyflock and Mortal Kombats. There pills are notorious for being very high dosage but also to sometimes not contain the right synth to get the typical loved up MDMA feeling. So sometimes they would just destroy you and leave you sat on a couch with your eyes closed for hours...
Tell me more about the mortal kombats. They were ones that made the news about 'killing' some underaged kid. I never took them but they were from the same presser. I'm not sure if they were adulterated, faked or if the death was related to something else i.e. Leah Betts.
How did you end up getting caught? See below for how I got caught :)
I saw that you shipped to your own house, what do you think about that decision nowadays? I wouldn't never go back to ordering from the deep web. But it's a double edged sword ordering to your address because if you don't, the package could be scrutinized if the address/name isn't legit. But if you order to your house and it gets seized, expect more than a letter from customs.
Why didn't you just pretend you hadn't ordered anything and that some stranger was just sending you something? why did you let the police search your home? it doesn't make sense. I didn't want to seem guilty so I let them enter my house. They arrested me immediately and began searching and confiscated my items :)
I hate to ask you hypothetical questions, but do you think if you had refused them entry you would have been able to wipe you hard drives and perhaps avoid incriminating yourself so much? Can you detail what kind of evidence they were able to secure from your computer? I believe they would've found out I had a phone contract and accessed my phone text records regardless. But I could've possibly wiped any link to my facebook account and hid my phone and maybe they would've never checked. I'm not sure.
Im gonna have to say, reading your AMA you were a terrible drug dealer. no wonder you got caught. Yeah I'm sure I was :')
I feel really stupid for even trying to get away with it!
Are you an avid drug user? How were you planning to resell the MDMA you imported? How much did you import and how much did it cost you? What were your calculated profits? Only an avid MDMA user. Although recently I've been deciding to cut down completely and stop, whether this opinion changes in the near future, I won't know :P.
I was reselling through close friends and close friends were involved in the ordering and payment etc.
I don't want to say how much I imported in total but I had used the site for a year or so and my last order (which was seized and led to my arrest) was 100 ecstasy tablets.
I would guess that for 100 tablets you could make £600 profit by selling on the streets. But I think selling drugs on the streets and taking drugs to nightclubs to sell is pretty dumb in my opinion.
How do you feel about the controversies around Silk Road and other Online Black Marketplaces involving bitcoins being stolen by staff of the sites? If you read this article it'll give some insight into my opinion as I agree with some of his quotes and ideals...
Link to www.forbes.com
I believe the Silk Road for example wasn't just built to make profit. It was created out of an ideal and philosophy that really does speak to me. So if these staff members were stealing money etc it destroys the message and just makes the whole thing about greed. It makes me kinda ashamed that everyone is so greedy I guess.
How did you narrowly avoid jail time? Would you prefer to live in Greenland? I was pretty lucky in court. The judge assigned to my case was exceptionally lenient and made a speech about how I was a young person who had made mistakes but deserved a second chance. Sorry I forgot to reply to the second question; I don't fully understand why you asked it but no, I love my home town.
Do you think that the Silk Road helped decrease the violence associated with the drug trade by helping people avoid face-to-face meetings with drug dealers? I dealt with MDMA only and as you probably know the drug money/gang violence etc surrounding MDMA is extremely low compared to Heroin, Cocaine and Cannabis in the UK.
But from what I have read and from my general experiences I think it was helping to decrease it.
In the UK, most drugs are controlled by gangs and violent criminals so when they have less business because some dutch guy is in his house, weighing up bags of cocaine and sending them to the UK through the mail; then obviously there's less money going into the hands of the street dealers and gangs. But I can't say for sure whether the money isn't eventually funnelling into organized crime etc...
Presuming you were a regular user of Silk Road I presume you had alot of bitcoins built up. Did you sell them when they hit high price? Or were they seized presuming the police confiscated your laptop or computer? I actually didn't have any bitcoins left in my account when I was arrested. But I counted up the amount of bitcoins I had handled over a certain time period and if sold now would equate to hundreds of thousands of pounds...
Did you ship to your house or a safe location? I shipped to my house, yes. With a parent living here with me also.
Was it relatively easy to import drugs into the UK? I think a 12 year old could do it on a Mac Mini by watching a couple of Youtube videos... so yeah :P.
Do you support legalization of all drugs? Or partial legalization? Not at all. I think there should be more understanding of what "drugs" are. 'cause many things we intake can have harmful effects on the body but for some reason we are allowed to make the decision to put it in our body. But with other substances we're not allowed to make that decision. The way the system is set up is counter productive. Putting money into the wrong hands, encouraging violent/criminal behaviour and causing other problems like legal highs and research chemicals and stuff...
I think the decriminalization of the less harmful drugs would be better. But that could cause problems in the long term by encouraging people to turn to drugs, who otherwise wouldn't because it's illegal. I don't know!
Do you mind sharing your age with us? If so, how old are you? 24.
What steps did you take to not get caught? What steps should you have taken to avoid being found out? I obviously used Silk Road on TOR and I used bitcoins to pay which doesn't leave much of a paper trail back to myself. The problem was that if one suspect package got seized it would have my name and address on and instead of receiving a "love letter" from customs you would get police officers knocking at your door. Any evidence they find after knocking on your phone/computer can link you to the package. If you didn't have a single scrap of evidence on your computephone linking to the package you could deny the package was for you and probably face no charges.
So what was the evidence linking you to the package? Why were you unable to deny you ordered it? They had evidence on my phone openly discussing selling MDMA.
How many times, prior to you being caught, had you received packages? Numerous is all I want to say really :)
What do you think made this package different from the others that caused it to get flagged? Since frequency wasn't the issue. When you successfully received packages prior, did you ever think, damn I wish they would have been more careful? I saw it more as bad luck. I knew there was a chance of it getting seized and I was unlucky enough for it to have my name on. I don't know if the package was different as I never saw it. Maybe it was bad timing as they had sniffer dogs or were scanning items the day it came into the port.
Are you sure your in the clear to be posting this. Don't want you to end up in more trouble. No idea. Everything I have said in the thread has came out in court and I have been punished for it. So I don't think they can charge me again for something I have already admitted?
What do you use now? If you mean to buy drugs, I get them off friends but only rarely these days.
If you mean which drugs, just MDMA.
Uhhh...you really wanna admit to that after you got a suspended sentence with a laundry list of restrictions, one of which surely is not to buy or sell any more controlled substances? When I left court the judge said to me that next time I am out and I am offered a pill, to make my own decision. He told me that no one could stop me taking drugs and making my own decisions but just know that taking drugs got me here in the first place and it can lead down this road again.
I have cut down and plan to quit in the future.
The judge was telling you to make better decisions. He was not telling you that it's ok to do drugs. You've posted more than enough in here to land you in jail. Do you think what I have posted here could land me in jail? How so? I have been charged and convicted of what I did wrong with ALL the facts coming out. Are they going to charge me again for the same things? If I hypothetically murdered someone and got sent to prison, when I get out if I speak about it do I get charged again?
Yah but doing drugs AFTER your trial is a whole new set of crimes. I'd... not do that or talk about it. Taking drugs isn't a crime. Possession is.
Do you regret your actions? Yes, deeply. I had the worst 18 months of my life. Something like that hanging over your head, unsure whether you will be in prison or not. Horrible stuff!
How much did your solicitor & legal fees cost? How stressful was it, it sounds like a long drawn out process. It was in fact free, due to legal aid :)
How did you get into it in the first place? Was it already quite well-established when you got involved? I've known a few people who ordered things (and received them, and been very happy with quality!), but I've never known a seller, so also would be really interested to know what you did to set it all up in the first place. Side question - were you bricking it when you sent out your first orders? :) Ahh I think you misunderstood. I wasn't using Silk Road to sell anything. I just used it to buy. It was pretty easy to get into... there were youtube guides and blogs with guides etc.
Do you feel as though you have done anything wrong? Yes, I thought I could get away with selling drugs to people and I couldn't. I don't believe I am a bad person for doing it but it was definitely a mistake.
Unless I'm misreading you; you seem to think your mistake was getting caught and it was a mistake because of it. If you weren't caught do you think you would have stopped or carried on? Do you consider yourself a drug dealer? I considered myself a drug dealer but not a street dealer. I actually despised the kinda people who I had to previously buy drugs off and that's what drove me to Silk Road. I think I gave in to the fact it was so easy and started selling.
What I meant in my earlier post was I was wrong to think of myself as above the law or better than the law and to think I could do this. Not that my mistake was getting caught. My mistake was definitely getting involved in the first place. Getting caught was actually a good thing I guess because it could've been much worse. I'm trying to learn from my mistakes and move on. Also the ordeal tested my relationships to the max and everyone stood by me so it's made me realize a lot.
Looking back. Would you have done anything differently? How do you feel the police acted towards you throughout the process? Looking back the police where in fact, hilarious. They did a whole cliché good cop bad cop routine which I didn't realize at the time. I was treated with respect by the police and have respect for them doing there jobs. One police officer was a bit rude and patronizing to me but I'm sure he is just a miserable person in general.
If I could go back. I wouldn't sell a single ecstasy tablet to anyone. I still think buying off Silk Road for personal use has it's advantages but obviously now for me that ship has sailed.
You cite that you adhere to the libertarian ideals of silk-road, though, you also say that you aren't a big drug user and only use MDMA. - Would you say that you decided to start importing moreso to make some money? Or rather, to live up to, and contribute to the values that you cite? Originally I was importing to have good quality, safe MDMA and to support the ideals we've mentioned. But eventually when you get encouraged to sell it you do feel the instinct to make money. However much I dislike that instinct.
Let's put a hypothetical on that instinct (back when you were an importer) - If you had had the opportunity to make some good money from some much harder and more damaging drugs such as crystal meth/heroin, would you have considered doing so? Or is there a stage at which you draw a line in the sand? I wouldn't have got involved in any other drugs ever.
What did you buy, and how much did you order? Ecstasy tablets, 100 in my last order, with numerous orders before.
Did you ever get sold fake pills and if so how did you respond? Not from Silk Road. I've had bad experiences with other dealers. Pills that were PMMA. I responded by having a pretty bad weekend and never going back to that particular person.
Why dis you only sell Molly and no other drugs? I don't like other drugs. Weighing up the pros and cons of other drugs and MDMA is the only one I choose to risk to take.
Red or Blue? ;) Red :)
Did the person who sent them to you get caught too? No idea.
Just curious, what's your favorite kind of music ? Plenty: house, disco, techno, garage, hip hop, stuff from the 80s etc.
Would you ever consider going back to selling? No.
Did the dealer on the silk road have a high review rating? Do you know how the drugs were contained? Also please delete the post where you say you buy from friends now, especially with your name being in your proof. The silk road seller had a high rating yes. He was very reliable. I don't think I want to discuss how they were contained. Let's just say it was stealthy.
How has this screwed your personal life? It did screw with my personal life for a long time. My girlfriend was worried about me possibly not being around. My family suffered and going to court and being on bail messed with my job etc. But now everything is great. Everyone who was supposed to stand by me did so :)
What client did you use to connect to the dark net? Vidalia?
Do you know how your package got flagged? That's the scariest part about SR, because you never know if your package is going to make it through without suspicion. No idea. 100 tablets was my biggest order so it might have been because of the quantity.
How long did you successfully order drugs to your house for before you got caught? Did it take a long time? Maybe 6 months.
What if I buy 10 tablets for personal use? Will I be charged with the same thing? I worry for people I know who do this... If they come from abroad you face Importation charges for personal use.
Did you ever end up on the spice merchants site of the same name accidentally? Yes. Yes I did.
Did you not have a login/password required for your computer and phone or were the police able to get past it? They didn't require any info from me to access my phone records. They did it through the phone network (Three). They didn't access anything on my computer apart from Facebook messages which were through Facebooks server.
How did they access your Facebook account? Were they able to pinpoint how you placed the order; that it came from the Silk Road? Once they were aware that you had been using TOR, did they conduct any further computer forensics? Did they discover your bitcoin stash? Had they not been able to access your facebook account, would there evidence have been limited to your phone records and the package? The main evidence was phone messages and inferences that they drew from those. They had no idea what TOR was throughout the whole case. They also had no idea what Silk Road was. (police/prosecution/defence/judge)
What's the largest non-legal repercussion you've had to deal with as a result of your conviction? I don't understand what a non-legal repercussion is. Telling my family? paranoia/anxiety about the situation? Community Service? Having to inform future employers of a criminal record? etc?
I probably could have been more specific. I meant things like how your family reacted, etc. Things aside from the courtrooms and police officers. My girlfriend was very anxious, worried, depressed. We had to tell her family also and that was hard (especially her dad). I had to tell my family and everyone was upset but stood by me. I had to tell the owners of the business I work for and they stood by me also.
Holy shit, you didn't lose your job? I was, in fact told, that my job would still be available to me after my custodial sentence(if that happened) :)
Wouldn't you agree that the birko tranny is better looking than the secombe tranny? Is the birko tranny the one on the bike? I don't know what the seacombe tranny looks like sorry.
Well you were lucky there! But i always was curious since i first heard of the silk road, how do they sent the drugs to your address without them being seized/found at the various post offices, customs, xray scans etc? And how did you come up with the courage to order drugs to be sent to your address for the first time? My knowledge of customs is that they don't scan all items and don't have sniffer dogs all the time. They can't physically check every package.
