Re: [tor-talk] Use of SUNLIGHT for illegal activities



Hello Paul,

when dear god in heaven decided to construct earth, he implemented the sun in such way, that it shines over the good and the bad ones. Think about that. All criminals can do their bad things with help of the daylight. The sunlight is completely neutral, shining for everybody.

What you are asking for is some kind of sunlight which is shining only for the good ones while the bad ones should be kept in the dark. But that approach is childish and unwise. Technical things are always neutral and can be used in any way. TOR is no exception. Use it for good or for bad things.

You talk about pornography. I talk about hitmen, offering their services by hidden servers.

If god decides to remove the sunlight from earth because there are some people not worth to receive sunlight, do you think this were a good idea?
