The problem, as explained to me by several Dutch policemen, is that
taking down a few individual sites doesn't actually work. That is,
it doesn't reduce the number of criminals (or crimes) in the world.
These are social problems, and as such aren't really amenable to technical
solutions -- you quickly get to the "well, then let's ban cameras" step.
And at that point it doesn't make much sense to have a thread about it on
tor-talk mailing list
