TOR has gotten so far away from what it was originally designed for that I rarely touch it any longer. There's far too much shenanigans going on with TOR for it to be a safe, viable privacy solution any more.

The Guardian giving security/privacy advice is like getting human rights advice from Atilla the Hun.

Their very first recommendation to use TOR blows their credibility right out of the water.

I'm going to have my communications rewritten by the people who wrote gnu awk's manpage. That way I can continue to communicate nothing while giving the impression of imparting information. And no one will be able to decode it, ever.
