Re: [tor-talk] Meeting Snowden in Princeton



Its already been discussed that VPN services and i2p are more secure for
passing data unbeknownst to others, not even to mention the merits of the
dir auths, and how they were being ddosed by lizard squad or were being
seized.

AFAIK i have never heard the explanation behind the onymous arrests, but
when the TOR leadership associates with Randi Harper and Lorrelai.

In the end, we're all known by the company that we keep. Tor members seem
to be making alot of ties to government and telecom, and associates with
people like randi harper and lorrelai as well.

Like i said in a previous thread, i was working on building tor hidden
services, and now I no longer care to help tor at all, i'd rather wash my
eyes with bleach, nice concept but wrong team and wrong implementation.
