We Are A Blackmarket Internet Vendor that's sold over SR, BMR, and survived throughout! AMA!

While titled "I am a", it should be "we are a". By "we" we mean all members involved in our staff, and while we have had additions to our staff since we first started we maintain the same personal guidelines and rules of conduct, as well as product consistency.
In 1999 we started our major outlets, however these were simple anonymous forum posts and real-0life connections that we shipped to. These were in the scale of a few ounces at first and worked up to pounds. However in hindsight we were very amateur when we first started, although we've never had any major issue with packages not arriving.
In (?) 2010 we joined Silk Road and invested $5,600 in Bitcoins when they hit their low point, which allowed us (after a 2 year wait) to pull out and invest in better equipment and staff. We saved around 20% of all revenue made on Silk Road and after the first 6 months we were up to 3 employees and around 10 pounds being shipped out around the globe every month. Within 6 more months it was 10 pounds per week.
We sold an estimated (from cumulative BTc addresses) of 1,270 BTC (not USD, BTC) over Silk Road and Black Market Reloaded over the next 2 years. We achieved a second grow location in the west to better ship out product out to make sure customers received it on time.
This was 6 months prior to the SR July Issue where the government got a copy of the server image. Luckily we had some issues and were on vacation for 4 months (making us one of the "lucky" vendors, in that we did not do any sales during the compromise) so neither our personal or customer sales were an issue.
A week after the SR shutdown we had already pulled our BMR activity, however we still frequented the site enough to be served the root directory from BMR and had a look at the very amateur coding. We have no intention of going back to BMR.
Currently we stayed on vacation for 5 months (counting from when we took our SR hiatus) and have only recently opened our announcements of our new site and vending prospects (Bad Wolf Marketplace, The Marketplace, TorMarket).
We are also running our own .onion and .i2p market with clearnet links at modernculturemeds.webs.com
Feel free to ask us any questions, however due to security of our customers and shipping we may not be able to provide information in great detail on certain subjects.
