Cryptostorm (beta) Review - BestVPN.com

CryptoStorm is a reincarnation of VPN service CryptoCloud, a subsidiary (or possibly close working partner) of Baneki Privacy Computing, the CTO of which was a certain Douglas Spink (it has been widely reported that Mr Spink was the owner of both CryptoCloud and Baneki Privacy Computing, but a current spokesperson for CryptoStorm maintains that 'Baneki Privacy Labs is not "owned" by anyone.
Spink, a once successful American entrepreneur and adrenaline junkie who lost his millions and filed for bankruptcy in 2002, was convicted of smuggling 375 pounds of cocaine (valued at $34 million) in 2005, and arrested for running a bestiality farm in Canada in 2010. Given the large amount of drugs that Spink was convicted for smuggling, it seems rather strange (read suspicious) that he was released after only 3 years of a 17 year sentence (and nothing much seems to have come out of the bestiality charges). The only plausible explanation is that Mr Spink cooperated heavily with the authorities. We reviewed CryptoCloud a few months ago, and to be honest the reviewer (not the writer of this article), was less than impressed. However the company has recently reinvented itself as CrytoStorm, and offers some very interesting new ideas, billing itself as a structurally anonymous, token based darknet, based in Canada. Whether Mr Spink is involved in the 'new' company is less than clear (an anonymous spokesperson for CryptoCloud says not, but as that spokesperson may in fact be Douglas Spink, we don't know how far to trust this). It should also be noted that this rather distinctive style is more than a little reminiscent of the writing style of Douglas Spink. If Mr Spink is indeed involved with CryptoStorm, then his quick release from prison following his drug smuggling conviction, combined with the fact that following the bestiality farm case a condition of his release (.pdf) was that any computing hardware and software of his is be monitored by the United States Probation Department, could lead to well-founded suspicion that CryptoStorm might be an FBI honeypot. If you factor in Mr Spink's possible involvement however... well, we'll leave that one to you... I received an official reply about Spink from the team in the CS Forum , here it is: That some guy named Spink went to jail.


D.B. LeConte-Spink ➰ wrinko.net | “unwavering defiance� of bigotry, cruelty, & police state thuggery

Seattle (WA, United States): At the conclusion of today's hearing in front of Judge Ricardo Martinez, noted counter-surveillance technologist & heterospecies activist Douglas Spink responded with a declaration of "final round victory.
"As my legal team prepared for today's hearing, it became crystal clear that the USPO had lost the will to continue this fight," observes Spink. Continues Spink: "During nearly ten years of harassment, repeated imprisonment, and extra-legal persecution by the United States government, I have never kneeled down in the face of their illegitimate exercise of power. "With the Fed persecution campaign vanquished entirely," Spink explains," I am able to concentrate 100% of my energies on achieving a parallel victory in the 'Enumclaw Witchunt' case brought against me by Laura Clark in Whatcom County. According to Spink: "I proudly face down that hate-driven, bigotry-motivated Whatcom case directly and with my full attention. Spink continues: "It is long past time for her to stop wasting taxpayer - and donor - resources on bizarre, counter-factual personal vendettas and on purchases of militaristic armaments. Noted for his "unwavering defiance" (in the words of the U.S. Attorney's office) in the face of years of federal efforts to compel censorship of his published writings, to punish him for his activism in defence of persecuted minorities, and to hinder his work in the field of counter-surveillance technology, Spink never caved in to those censorship pressures. Instead, a full, uncensored archive of his writings has been collected at http://wrinko.net. Additionally, with his federal 'supervision' now at a close, he prepares to return formally to his leadership role in the counter-surveillance & network security field. His position as Researcher in Residence with Baneki Privacy Labs (http://baneki.nu) is expected to expand into additional roles in related projects & technologies. Spink concludes by quoting philosopher Daniel Quinn: Corinne Super, ex-fiancee of Douglas Spink Corinne Super, ex-fiancee of Douglas Spink


D.B. LeConte-Spink ➰ wrinko.net | “unwavering defiance� of bigotry, cruelty, & police state thuggery

You know I represent Douglas Spink.
With regard to the Doug Spink case, have you received e-mail communication from either US Probation, US Prosecutors, county probation, county law enforcement with regard to Mr. Spink? Q. Now, there was a, as has been explained to me, a probation search of the residence where Mr. Spink was living back in April of 2010. Did they share any information about whether they thought they expected to arrest Mr. Spink or anyone there at the time? When in relation to the timing of the search did you first become aware that Mr. Spink had been arrested? Q. I have been told that there is a summary of animal abuse case Doug Spink [location redacted] that was submitted to Whatcom County Council. Q. There is a document entitled summary of animal abuse case Doug Spink - [location redacted] that was submitted to Whatcom County Council about June 21st of 2010. Seattle (WA, United States): At the conclusion of today's hearing in front of Judge Ricardo Martinez, noted counter-surveillance technologist & heterospecies activist Douglas Spink responded with a declaration of "final round victory.

Spink concludes by quoting philosopher Daniel Quinn: The entire pretence of "write-about-Spink but too scared to actually write to Spink to ensure I'm not writing bullshit resulting from rampant personal cowardice" is just too jaw-chenchingly disappointing to really summarize in words. Are you worried I'll l337 hax0r you - all your bases are belong to Spink? Or what? Turns out not only was my case in 2005 "parallel constructed" out of illegally-obtained spy intel (generated by a weaponized branch of the military: the NSA), it looks like some folks dipped into the same stream as they tried to "get Spink" during the winter of 2009/2010. Did the USP... err, "someone," use illegally-sourced military intel in their frantic, expensive, violent effort to "get Spink? To hell with these "laws" and "facts" and stuff: we hate Spink! The heart of the hearing was this interchange between Doug and Judge Martinez: Spink: My First Amendment right to speak freely is worth a great deal to me, Your Honor. Doug once again refused to buckle under the threat of "years" in prison if he exeercises that inalienable right, and his continued stance against governmental censorship and attempts to gag him was duly noted by the Capital-C Court. Despite that threat, and countless other threats and punishments and horrific abuses prior to it, Doug has not once backed down from that stance. Which seems, at this point, to be a pretty well-settled point. The end result of the hearing was pretty straightforward: the gag order was lifted, and Doug is now able to access the internet directly. And you might expect that Doug has something to say about the PRISM scandal, the confirmation that the United States is engaged in massive, extra-legal, unconstitutional, secretive spying on not only its own citizens but the entire world. He does. And he will. "You are not like everyone else out there," Judge Martinez tells Doug. A common thread in the years-long smear campaigns against Doug Spink has been the ever-shifting sands of accusations against him. Two things have stayed constant, and they're closely related: the hatred of Doug by the United Police States of America, and their constant smearing of him as a snitch. True to form, the exact story of what Doug supposedly did to get labelled a snitch never really holds stable over time. The ever-creative Seattle Times can't quite keep him distinct from Wesley Cornett - the actual snitch who actually wore a DEA wire on Doug (and others) for several months. First, Doug worked for a Canadian smuggling organization. [note: If you read the rest of that story, you see that the Times is already engaging in a hand-waving conflation of Doug with Cornett - the entire article is about Cornett, his wire, his cooperation, his work to catch the two dirty lawyers... Doug comes up only in reference to an issue relating to conflict with his attorney, Jeff Steinborn - more on that below...] [note: If you read the rest of that story, you see that the Times is already engaging in a hand-waving conflation of Doug with Cornett - the entire article is about Cornett, his wire, his cooperation, his work to catch the two dirty lawyers... Doug comes up only in reference to an issue relating to conflict with his attorney, Jeff Steinborn - more on that below...] Second, the night Doug was arrested he'd just picked up a load from Cornett, in Everett. Third, Doug refused to take the various law enforcement folks gathered in Monroe to his 'meet' location with the helicopter, in the North Cascades, later that evening. Doug didn't take cops to the helicopter, and was booked into jail that night. Since the pilot of his crew (Owe Jensen, who died later in 2005 in a helicopter crash - and no, it wasn't an "accident") was never arrested nor charged with a crime, it's quite obvious Doug didn't provide information to the Feds so they could catch the helicopter. Thus was a sad fate, like the suicide of Sam Brown, averted when Doug refused the Fed offer. Fifth, Doug went to prison that night, and didn't step free until several years later. Indeed, he was locked up the whole time Cornett was wearing his DEA wire to meet with the two local attorneys who eventually plead guilty to accepting drug money. Despite that, the "Seattle Wiki" can't quite seem to stop saying that Doug was responsible for these two lawyers' subsequent legal troubles - apparently, he has magical superpowers and can arrange for meetings with people while in solitary confinement, in prison. Wow. Sixth, Doug hired a fellow named Jeffrey Steinborn as his attorney. Steinborn wrote the suppression motion to contest the illegal detention of Doug during his traffic stop arrest. Doug blew the whistle on Steinborn's betrayal. He's never discussed this before, but apparently that information is shortly to be published in an upcoming book, so we don't think it's out of line to mention it here. Oddly, a competent writer at the Seattle Times actually got this basically right in an article back in 2005: Friedman referred to a "conflict of interest" between Spink and his attorney. Spink's cooperation has "given rise to independent investigation of others, including members of our bar," Friedman said. He said the matters under investigation involving attorneys relate to their obligations to their clients and to the court. He characterized Spink's information as "very significant" and likened it to "turning on a light in a room. {boldface added} Seventh, Doug plead guilty to one count of Possession of a Controlled Substance. One count. His recommended sentence range was 6-7 years - not 10 years, not 15 years. Further, he quite clearly qualified for the "safety valve" as a first-time, nonviolent offender - which removed the mandatory minimum 10 year sentence for his charge). Here's how Families Against Mandatory Minimums describes the safety valve: "...some defendants qualify for the 'safety valve,' a law Congress passed in 1994 (at FAMM's urging) to provide relief from mandatory minimums" (a detailed overview is available here, as .pdf). Is it fair that he could get so little time for carrying such a large load of drugs? No, it's not - the drug laws in this country are hideously unfair. In the years since his arrest, Doug has spoken out loudly and consistently on these unfair laws - the very laws which ended up unfairly benefiting him after his arrest. They are unfair, they are indefensible, and even someone who got the less-bad end of them rejects them as evil. (Doug, it should be said, knew those laws intimately and had researched the sentencing guidelines extensively before he was ever arrested. Geeks do stuff like that. So perhaps it was not just "luck" that lead him to avoid a far worse baseline guideline range...)
