Point taken. That's the way the local city council is populated (if
you're socially to the left of fascists).

One advantage I can see with Schneier is there's someone on the board to
toot their horn if they find or hear about something amiss, and the
personal infosec capability to front other whistleblowers without
blowing their cover  I don't think he has any qualms about doing that
and DOES NOT NEED torproject to be celebrity nor can they really damage
his rep.

It's unlikely that what happened to ioerror could be done to him because
A, he's not sub-culturally affiliated, whatever you want that to mean...
B... He was a hardcore CIA intel analyst and his persec is going to be
uncrackeable by the kind of jokers he might encounter at torproject.

Therefore I think he's more than appropriate as a watchdog...
