Re: [tor-talk] New Tor project idea for internet comments



This has nothing to do with people censoring tor users and everything to do with normal blogs censoring normal users because they don't like their comments. I am thinking mainly of the USA here. This will be a problem as time progresses.

This allows sharing of information directly on news sites, safely and anonymously, completely circumventing their censoring of other political views. How is this not the place for something like this?
