I think we differ there. I don't think it's irresponsible, and I don't
think the configuration is designed to be vulnerable. I do agree
there's room for better awareness, but there's no perfect solution. At
some point people have to take responsibility for their own safety,
and the fact that they're downloading Tor in the first place suggests
they are able to do so.
