An Australian man accused of operating what prosecutors believe was the biggest illegal marketplace on the darknet has been arrested in Germany.

The site, known as DarkMarket, was shut down on Monday, prosecutors in the south-western city of Koblenz said.

All sorts of drugs, forged money, stolen or forged credit cards, anonymous mobile phone SIM cards and malware were among the things offered for sale there, they added.

The suspected operator, a 34-year-old Australian man, was arrested near the Germany-Denmark border.

I think Mr Murdoch is doing an excellent job in very difficult circumstances. :tea:

Wasn't that some kind of excuse to grope her without her even realizing she was being assaulted?

Projecting much?
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

Not at all, I'd never put my life at such risk, probably not even if that ensured scoring a home run.

But surfers would? Especially the type that would have no problems scoring a home run after surfing Pipeline?

For one things, sufers are supposed to be able swimmers
for another, just being a surfer means taking silly risks for fun.

Surfers are nutters. How do they rationalise puting their soft, smashable bodies at the bottom of a four story wall of fast moving water!?!?
