Tor is '90 per cent of the net' claims City of London Police Commish – and he's dead wrong


Re: It can't do.

From reading the comments here, the unfortunate police officer is obviously not alone in his feeble grasp of the Internet, so thanks for finally chiming in with a sanity check.

Have an upvote - wish I could give you many!

Re: These pirates are thieves, not 'leftists'

Well, you _are fighting a tsunami - it's called 'the Internet', a.o.t.

The film and music industry will adjust, eventually. They have before, several times, but never willingly. They never learn. The IT revolution is changing everything. Everything. Even me...

Assange: 'Ecuadorian embassy staff are like my family'


Re: Deluded

"is there is anywhere in the world where you are more likely to get a fair trial?"

Seems to me you and Assange both are / have been somewhat deluded about the Swedish justice system, and probably about things Swedish altogether. Things are often not what they seem to ignorant foreign journalists. Don't get blinded by propaganda.


Re: What really pisses me off

"he was explicitly asked to wear a condom but didn't."

How do you know?


Re: Even assuming the Swedish allegations are false and are dropped...

@Scorchio!!: True. Also, the Swedish allegations have all the signs of a classical honey trap. Knowing where the women - and their counsellor(!) - are coming from, as well as what legal shenanigans took place _before Assange left Sweden, there is no doubt in my mind that Sweden would have gladly extradited Assange to the US. As they are wont to; cf. CIA 'renditions'. As it turned out, Assange outwitted them all. For now...
