Both of these positions put buyer information at risk if an unsavoury character sits behind them, website administrators more than forum moderators but both certainly have their risks. The quantity of people that fail to use PGP when ordering on DNM's is absolutely shocking; quite a significant majority of addresses are sent in cleartext and if a federal agent or simply a malicious actor obtained an administrative position the former would keep note of all addresses for law enforcement purposes, and the latter certainly could in order to blackmail and extort people. The DNM's of today need to be kept small enough and decentralised enough that one or two people - maximum - can run the entire market. One coding / thoroughly reviewing any externally submitted snippets of code (if freelancers are involved) / taking care of market security, and one taking care of marketplace customer service / publicity / forums etc. The only way of bringing others on board would to get a copy of their identification and run a full, thorough background check. As online information can be falsified that would include anonymously hiring a private investigator to tail and thoroughly check your potential member of staff. Thanks to what happened with Silk Road, however, you'd be hard pushed to find someone who would give you their ID. And if they did, knowing what they know about previous events, you absolutely should not hire them.2) Forum moderators: multiple languages
3) Website administrators: multiple languages
These positions alone could result in a marketplace failing should the people hired to maintain them decide to work for a competing marketplace or indeed law enforcement for a price.10) Darknet PR specialists (DNM forums, Reddit)
11) Journalists with access to the mainstream media
All of these are covered in the point about mods and admins! Any one of these could introduce malicious code / MITM issues / wallet stealing mechanisms / phishing issues. Unless one person coded the entire market him/herself and was the only one taking care of every single position the OP mentioned above it would be a market that is too insecure to place even a single satoshi into. It may well end up being multi-sig, but even then you have the risk of addresses being viewed in order to extort people. You have that now, of course, but at least you're relatively sure that there aren't potentially 15 people, or a multiple of that number, viewing your information.12) Dark Net programmers

Well regardless use strong encryption and protect your privacy. This forum aims to be open, unless there is a clear violation of something we need to comply with. I assume markets advertise on the clearnet, to get customers, in reference to the SEO, but whatever."Could you please tell us more OP?"
Are you fucking kidding me?
Why hasnt this been deleted?
8) Blackhat SEO specialists: multiple languages
what in the fuck?
Are you guys fucking stupid?
This isnt how you start a market, Ross....
