"AFP manager of crime operations Peter Sykora said in a statement: "Criminals are attempting to exploit the international mail system through online networks, but the recent arrest demonstrates that we are one step ahead of them. "

I bet silkroad is crumbling as we speak!

Australian police aren't the only ones to crack down on the Silk Road. The DEA in the United States is also on the warpath, targeting similar sites such as the Farmer's Market. In July 2012 the organisation told a US news station KXAN that it was investigating the Silk Road and in November 2012, DEA spokesperson Rusty Payne told The Verge when quizzed on the Silk Road: "Typically we're not really giving out investigative updates about what we're doing, but it's safe to say we are heavily involved in looking into that." In the UK, the Serious Organised Crime Agency and the Metropolitan Police E-Crime unit have also been digging into the marketplace.

However, despite all of these investigations, the conviction rate isn't looking all that promising for law enforcement.

Yup, it's hilarious how they think they are actually winning this fight. Actually, they probably don't think that, but they can't exactly admit to the public that there's jack shit they can do about it so they have to put on a good show.

This isn't the first conviction, there have been arrests before. This is just the first time they were able to OFFICIALLY link it to silk road.

90% of the time somebody gets arrested its because they were an idiot and didn't package their shit correctly. Also because they were shipping internationally. Don't ship internationally, and you won't get customs on your ass. Guy I order from has been operating for years for two reasons, damn good packaging, and he refuses to ship outside the U.S. (where he operates).

Silk Road going nowhere as long as the buyers and sellers remain smart about what they are doing.

The first step would be not buying internationally, sticking to domestic sellers only.

And maybe he does not tell that around public forums?  Huh

So let me get this straight: They busted one idiot who was reselling SR merchandise to locals using SMS. Guess what: In every bigger city several of those get busted every week.
It's hilarious. They surely are cracking down on Silk Road, LOL!  

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.
