Freenet must operate under the laws of both the US and the UK. What's surprising, exactly? If you want support for illegal activities, don't look for it on moderated, non-anonymous forums like this email list! How surprising is that? Seriously, if you want to discuss illegal activities, shouldn't you be using something like, I don't know, Freenet?
