Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, has been arrested in London under a Swedish warrant.

The controversial whistle-blowing website’s founder is accused of rape, unlawful coercion and sexual molestation in Stockholm. Mr Assange, 39, denies the charges, which he claims are politically motivated.

He arrived at City of Westminster magistrates' court around 1pm on Tuesday.

Supporters are organising a protest demonstration outside the court. At the same time, online activists have launched attacks on the websites of services such as PayPal which have blocked WikiLeaks in recent days.

Pressure on WikiLeaks has been growing since it began releasing thousands of classified US documents.

The latest was a list of what the US called “critical infrastructure” sites around the world.

Robert Gates, the US defence secretary, told reporters in Afghanistan on Tuesday that Mr Assange’s arrest was “good news”.

Mr Assange has previously threatened that other WikiLeaks activists would release a “deluge” of further documents in the event of his arrest and the website on Tuesday insisted that today’s events would not affect its plans for the further publication of leaked documents, which are expected to continue into the new year.

no, as far as the "rape" i.e. who was raped or what evidence do they have relating to a rape

He was making a funny. And it's true. He raped the US gov't.

They are going to obviously hide who claims to have been raped by the fellow. Because, he probably never raped anyone. It's obvious that the claims are politically motivated.

P.S Assange gave himself in, to clear his name as his lawyer said.

Something the article - probably deliberately - doesn't mention. Well, it might, but you have to be a member to view the whole thing, and I'll be damned if I'm signing up just to read one article.

I bet that the next leaks will be devastating =P

Why else would he be arrested on a seemingly odd matter?

I think you missed the post above, he turned himself in, thus he was arrested - the rape charge was on him for a while now

P.S. maybe this is a better coverage of it, I seem to only be able to read the first sentence from the original link, maybe you need to log in or something

Just to clear up "turned himself in," he turned himself in because there was a warrant for his arrest anyway, he did not confess to the rapes.

Also there will be leaks posted about the Bank of America and something else which I forget. This would obviously be reason enough to try to stop him from doing so, however he's stated that if it's not him publishing it, someone else will for him (as stated in the 1st post but I know most of you don't read that far).

Well if you read the article, he was charged with sexual molestation in combination of both the girl's getting played and the lack of condoms. Also they argued that he purposefully made the hole in the condom.

However that case was long dismissed.

One of the girls came back recently and told media that it was actually a rape and she said "no"....not consensual sex as she first described it. Obviously it's bullshit and if he seriously gets charged with rape, we know something is up.

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though
