I think I suggested this a while ago regarding the update mechanism of
the Tor Browser to do it across a set of .onion's (perhaps hardcoded)
operated by Tor Project and maybe some mirrors by volunteers like
myself and Moritz. The signature check can be a double layer of
security but generally across .onions does make it all the better in
all aspects. Yes using a hidden service does increase overall network
load with the additional circuit length, but afaik using an onion will
avoid exits unless neccersary (please correct if I am wrong on this)
and really therefore only use the under-utilised smaller middle relays.
I already added a number of onions for my services which are
accessible and so pushing for others to do the same would be welcome
company. Renaming hidden services is all well and great, but so long
as illegal services are notorious with no legal services to challenge
that misconception, we're just beating around the bush. Alec has done
a great job with Facebook and so has Blockchain, but such a handful of
people like ourselves won't change much. Anyone with contacts within
Twitter or heck, even Disconnect/StartPage, would be great to patch
them through to here. In the mean time, I shall start petitioning a
few other outlets to add a hidden service to their available means of
Activist, anarchist and a bit of a dreamer.
